Wednesday, November 14, 2012      2 comments

It's officially sixty days since I started walking one mile every evening. Through all the rough spells of late, at least I am going strong walking every day. If I get my calorie intake under control and water consumption increased I might actua... Read more

It's that time of the year and probably the reason for my funk

Little known fact is most serious relationships end after two years and typically around the holidays or in the first few months of the new year. It's a time when everyone takes stock of their situation in life: family, friends, career, relation... Read more

I really am struggling and I don't know why. I just am fighting myself so hard to get back into shape. I am still walking every day and have been since Sept 16th, but everything else is just going by the wayside. I am not really sure what the he... Read more

Where does emotional energy come from?

Saturday, November 03, 2012      3 comments

My job drains all the energy out of my bones by the end of the day and I come home with nothing for myself. I take abuse from others in my organization because my job entails culture change in a very large institution. I am just so frustrated. T... Read more

I am so frustrated with myself. First off I haven't tracked my food in five days! Ridiculous. I use to come home and religiously track everything I ate. Now I constantly forget. What's worse is I am starting to fall back into old eating habits b... Read more

Still struggling to get back on track

Sunday, October 21, 2012      4 comments

Alrighty my job is really getting me off track in a very distracting way. It so bad that I am not sleeping at night thinking about problems coming on Monday morning. I am really struggling to get my thoughts headed back in the right direction on... Read more

Argh, been out of the saddle for a few days

Tuesday, October 16, 2012      2 comments

Well the past few days are not the brightest moments of my weight loss journey. It's not that I overate significantly or didn't walk my daily route (Day 31 of my streak :) ). I just didn't keep myself in mind. I didn't track my food. I wasn't mi... Read more

Lost my pedometer :(

Wednesday, October 10, 2012      2 comments

I am really disappointed. I took my daily walk and my pedometer went missing somewhere along the way. I retraced my steps but someone must have picked it up or something. Argh. I was starting to do really well tracking my steps. On a happy... Read more

I'm getting faster :)

Thursday, October 04, 2012      4 comments

I started walking everyday about two and half weeks ago. It's made a significant difference in my weight loss journey AND I am getting faster each week. When I started I could only walk a mile in 19 to 20 minutes. Yesterday I made it in 16.5 min... Read more

I finally watched the scale move!

Monday, October 01, 2012      3 comments

It's official. I've actually lost two pounds. I started walking about two weeks ago in addition to keeping a food journal and the scale actually gave "weight" this time around. I am very content right now. That warm type of content that starts w... Read more

Walking everyday is really paying off

My legs are stronger. I breathe easier. And I just walk for an hour with a friend around the park without losing a step! I am going in the right direction this time and I am really excited about it!... Read more

I actually completed my fitness goal for the week!

Saturday, September 22, 2012      2 comments

Hot Damn! Granted my goal for the week was to simply take a 10 minute walk everyday but i did it. I stayed committed throughout this heinous week. I normally fall off the wagon when disaster strikes, except this time! It's probably silly to smil... Read more

Day 5 and all hell broke loose in my life

Thursday, September 20, 2012      1 comments

Thus far 96 walking minutes since Sunday logged. Only two more days and I will complete my challenge. Honestly if it weren't for the cheering on of anonymous SparkPeople I would have stopped. See, I always get discouraged when other parts of my ... Read more

Well thus far Day 1 turned from walking into raking challenge and Day 2 I got soaked. On Sunday I got twitch to just start raking and it turned into my exercise for the day. Yesterday I started walking and got caught mid route in a rain storm. W... Read more
