I need a hug
I've really lost my spunk, my drive and my will. I have been depressed for months - as in - on meds, using a happy lamp, and still working very hard to get out of bed in the morning. I find myself asking "what's the point" a whole lot.
So... Read more
Sluggish and thinking about time
Oh my, this is a hard one. Soooo sluggish today. Sleep last night was horrible. I kept waking up coughing (allergy season) needing to pee (drank the last three cups of wat... Read more
Not a very good end to my week. Stress and PMS caught up with me on Thursday and Friday. I didn't track, and I didn't eat very well. Sweets. Not even ones that are worth the calories - not an indulgence, not even a treat. Just sugar. I'm putting... Read more
Update to Reckless Morning
As I thought, I pretty much didn't get hungry again until around dinner time. Lucky me! I must have had enough protein to protect me from the sugar crash.
I knew that to get my protein for the day, I was going to have to eat a bunch of it f... Read more
It is 10:38 a.m. and I have 19-365 calories left for the day. At least that includes 31 grams of protein... but...er, 200 carbs.
Not sure what snapped this morning, but I just wasn't present. I'm a bit stressed, trying to relax.. and not p... Read more
Lately, I’ve noticed the ads on Spark are becoming intrusive and inappropriate. Ads for diet fasts, “metabolic boost” bars, Snickers, fast food… “You can lose weight with this one ridiculous trick…”
I know Spark needs to make money – but th... Read more
No mistakes today
Preach! I have made every mistake in the book when it comes to taking care of myself. I repeat these "mistakes" over and over again. But the quote above makes a very goo... Read more
Sobering morning leads to serene day.
My weigh-in day is Saturday. For the first time in a long time, I stepped on the scale and had a sobering experience. I knew I had gained a lot of weight back, but I didn't realize just how much. I now understand what's wrong with my knee. I'm m... Read more
When opportunity strikes...
For the first time since early this summer I embraced the opportunity of a new day. Here's how I made great use of today:
1. I get to work from home on Fridays now. A... Read more
Yup. That's pretty much been my life this year. Right now, I'm back at "do." I've actually been back tracking for a week, but I left blogging and enjoying the other delig... Read more
I am having some serious commitment issues
Commitment to friends, family, work, and myself has all gone to the wayside. I’m all about being satisfied right NOW, while, of course, not really being satisfied at all.
The past six weeks have seen me reverting to old ways of eating and n... Read more
Low-Key and OK with it.
Lucky for me that my social circle has become quite small. There was no picnic, no bbq, no party: no issues with being surrounded by unhealthy food in large measure or the empty calories of alcohol.
In fact, I did quite well yesterday. For... Read more
Just wanted to pop in quickly and say I'm still around. But very round. I've really been neglecting myself (and Spark) in the past week or so, and that's a bad thing.
I'm sure I've gained around 5 lbs due to eating whatever comes to mind ... Read more
There is a question at the end of this blog.
Coming back to work after a week off isn’t easy. Getting out of bed at 4:45, getting dressed, walking the dog, driving in – all took extra time today as I dragged my butt around. I’m completely tuned out here at work – as in, I haven’t really st... Read more
Wowie zowie! I've been out of touch for about a week now and it has felt really strange. I'm glad to be back in the swing of things. I need to read bunches of blogs and catch up with all of you!
I spent the last week out in rural PA visitin... Read more
