Math is motivating? Who knew?
As the holiday season is upon us, along with all the random Christmas goodies I find myself eating even though I don’t like baked goods, I thought I’d search for some help resisting this year. (If I’m going to be bad and eat too much, I should ... Read more
Taking a look at a weekend of eating:
Well the “what” wasn’t so bad (I even opted out of having a beer with dinner last night), but based on this bloated feeling I’m suffering from Monday morning, I’m going to guess the “how much” might have been more than I think... I’m especially ... Read more
Time to get serious!
I’ve said this a thousand times before; I just hope maybe this time something clicks and sticks...
I have a ton of shallow reasons coming up this year that should help motivate me, at least 3 weddings, one of which I need to wear a bridesm... Read more
I just got back from I wonderfully relaxing week in the warm... Unfortunately it also came with a terrible reality check as a tried to sausage myself into summer clothes, avoided the beach since no one wants to see that in a bathing suit and sa... Read more
Losing faith in math and the laws of science...
I think I’m losing faith in the whole mathematical concept of calories in less than calories out = loss. I weighed myself today, and somehow I’m up 5lbs in 2 days!!!! How did this happen?? I’ve been so good over those days, exercised lots, pac... Read more
I almost made it my 21 days, but last night I caved and bought chips when I was at the grocery store. But that’s ok, today we’ll just start with day 1c, and if need be there’s a few more letters of the alphabet... Overall I was actually impres... Read more
Picking myself back up...Literally...
With all the chaos of exam time, I’d grown rather lazy with my works outs. I kept going to at least a couple classes a week, but let’s just say I wasn’t giving it my all... So the last week or so I’ve been trying to pick up the pace again, get... Read more
Well the bad news is I bought snack food in the grocery store yesterday, but the good news is it was crackers and cream cheese not the chips I really wanted to buy. And, I didn’t eat everything in one night.... Read more
One small step...
I’ve actually been successful at cutting out junk food for over a week now! Now that’s not to say I’m eating nothing but healthy food, there’s been some ice cream, a steak that was way larger than needed, a few “refreshing beverages” etc... but... Read more
Starting over yet again...
Ok, so my brilliant plan lasted about 3 hours before I had to admit that I was re-starting my count at zero days. Stupid buying bus tickets at a bulk barrel... All well, I picked myself back up and this weekend went well (of course I also didn... Read more
A new start...
Today I’ve decided to make a fresh start. Coming to this conclusion isn’t that difficult; after all why else do I even try to Spark? But boy do I struggle with sticking with the start long enough to see where the journey might take me. I’m ve... Read more
Yesterday Wasn't Bad...
Ok, I’m late again, apparently one thing I need to work on is finding the energy to spend a little time reflecting on the day each evening and getting some of the to do list I make at work done before plopping for the night... Anyways, here’s my... Read more
Yesterday I decided I was going to start using this blog each evening to reflect on at least three good things that happened that day. Obviously, by the time I got home I didn’t actually follow through with the great plan last night. As I was ... Read more
An experiment in optimism – Take 2
Apparently this is going to be a LONG experiment... I’m a few days in, and let me tell you, coming up with something positive to say without the negativity monster jumping in with a “but...” is HARD. Ok, it’s not hard, it’s pretty much impossib... Read more
An experiment in optimism...
I decided to start trying to write down all the good and bad things that come up throughout the day with the hopes of gaining some perspective, and maybe even change to be a slightly more positive person. So far, I’ve been good at listing all th... Read more
