Exhausted & Still Struggling
Only have a few minutes to blog, so I'm gonna make the most of it.
My life is CRAZY. I know everyone's is, but it seems like mine comes in tides. When I made the decision to eat clean, I also made the decision to cut out some of the crazi... Read more
Today... not bad, not great. Got up and ran. That was good. Ate 'okay' - had a cookie that I shouldn't have, but only 1.
I have entered into the 'relaxed zone' - where everyone is complementing me on my weight loss - telling me how gre... Read more
She saved my life...
and I had to tell her goodbye today.
15 years ago I was in such a deep depression that to look back on it today scares me. Every day was overcast,. Living was a chore. I could no longer hear God, see God, feel God. I never contemplat... Read more
I'm feeling crazy again - school, school and more school. Man have I made some not good decisions.
Spring break was great - time with kids, did taxes (okay - that wasn't so great), exercised, worked outside and in doing garden work. And I... Read more

Funny thing about the scale
Okay, so I spent over a week stressing about the fact that the scale wouldn't move, even though I was doing the right thigs. NOt an ounce. Not 0.1 pounds. EVERY morning 157.0. I started to wonder - doesn't your body fluctuate a LITTLE bit fr... Read more
Pasta and Butter
I have to admit - there are a few things I REALLY miss from my "dirty-eating" days, and butter is probably #1 or 2. I know, it's okay to use OCCASIONALLY and IN SMALL AMOUNTS, but I haven't done it. Until tonight.
*Baked Salmon ... Read more
I'm doing well. Yes, it's Easter. Day of chocolate bunnies, chocolate easter eggs, etc. etc. But we filled the eggs this year with non-sugary (although not clean either) items... Goldfish crackers and Teddy Grahams. They got a chocolate East... Read more
Week 4 of the C25K program didn't go as well today as it did on Sunday. I had a hard time breathing during the 0.5 mile stretches (did okay on the 0.25 stretches though). I think my inhaler is running low, though, and that might be my problem.... Read more
I switched to week 4 (FINALLY!) of the C25K program today. I felt it, for sure, but had no trouble breathing until the very end. By then I was so close I pushed through. Yeah! I really worked my legs on Friday, though, so my lower half feels... Read more
So far, So good
So far no sugar today. Day 1. I had the major sugar cravings, but I decided to munch almonds instead. Ive had 20 almonds so far, but at least they've got some nutritional value. Plus with TOM here, I'm just hungrier. As long as I'm putting ... Read more
Okay. So it's finally happened. I've fallen off the proverbial wagon. ON Sunday night I made my famous brownies for my 6th hour class. I did fine on Sunday night, even though my family had one for dessert. But my 6th hour is a small class, ... Read more
Okay, so the store I went to has sizes that seem to run a bit large - but still - a size 6!!!
I went shopping yesterday with my good friend Ashley. She is a great help - brings me different sizes, styles I might not try on that I should tr... Read more
As I drove home from school last night I had that old feeling over being overwhelmed... like even the smallest job for me (for example: brushing my teeth) is beyond my ability to do. I have so many responsibilities, and again I am having troubl... Read more
I am working WAY too much again. Twice this week I got up and 4am and worked instead of worked out. I made up for it in the afternoon, but MAN I don't want to be so tied to work. I'm not sure if I'm not using my time wisely when I'm at school... Read more
