Week 74 - So Tired
Sunday, September 25, 2016      3 comments

I have a cold. Stupid beginning of the school year plague. It's taking so long to get anything done and there's so many things I need to get done. Pushing through.... Read more
Week 73 - Restarting the Restart
Sunday, September 18, 2016      3 comments

I was starting to buckle down and refocus on SparkPeople, and then stuff happened and I didn't. Today I will. I probably have a too ambitious plan set up but there's a lot of things I want to change in my life right now.... Read more
Week 72: I Had High Hopes For This Week
Sunday, September 11, 2016      2 comments

I felt like I was getting back on track. I felt like I was about to make my next milestone of 20% loss. Instead, I got in a car accident. No was seriously injured, and I'll ever be thankful for that, but I am being forced to take it easy to h... Read more
Week 71: I've Been Doing This a Long Time
Sunday, September 04, 2016      3 comments

This restart is 71 weeks (and I could've restarted a couple of times in there but I at least kept going). I've had this account at Spark since 2011 (and I have a couple of dead accounts from before then). I was on MyFitnessPal for a while and ... Read more
Week 70 - Persistence
Sunday, August 28, 2016      0 comments

I work in a pharmacy and this month we are being audited by one of the insurance companies to which we direct bill prescriptions. Near the end of July they sent us a list of over 200 prescription numbers that they wanted us to locate in our fil... Read more
Week 69 - Needed a Break
Sunday, August 21, 2016      3 comments

And I took it. I'm not going to feel guilty about it. I just needed a break from tracking and exercising and everything. So... it's sort of a day one again today.... Read more
Week 67 - Could Do Better
Sunday, August 14, 2016      2 comments

I felt I did all the right things last week. I was home by myself so I had planned meals, didn't bring home salty snacks and had to step up walking the dog. And then I got discouraged. I was doing all the right things but the scale was moving... Read more
Week 66 - Or Is It Day 2?
Sunday, August 07, 2016      2 comments

I've been coasting for too long (and it showed up on the scale) so yesterday I made a real effort. I tracked as the day went by, rather than trying to remember everything at the end of the day. I also made conscious choices to keep within my c... Read more
Week 65 - Two Bad Weeks in a Row
Sunday, July 31, 2016      3 comments

Time to turn this train around. I don't like the heat but I can't let it stop me.... Read more
Week 64 - The Less Said the Better
Sunday, July 24, 2016      1 comments

Last week was not a good week. It was a bad week. I didn't track well, I didn't exercise as much as I should have and I definitely didn't get enough sleep. This week must be a better week. I've come too far to slip back. A bad week every no... Read more
Week 63 - No Red Squares Take 2
Sunday, July 17, 2016      2 comments

I almost did it last week. I earned only 3 reds. 1 - I was exhausted and decided sleeping was better than running. 2 - I ran out of time. We went out for the evening and got home much later than expected so I didn't have time for one more wal... Read more
Week 62 - No Red Squares
Sunday, July 10, 2016      1 comments

A few weeks ago I downloaded a motivational app because I was lacking in motivation. It's just a calendar and a list of things I want to accomplish each day. I set how often I want to complete the goal and add checks if I do or an x if I don't... Read more
Week 61 - So Much to Do... So Little Motivation to Do It
Sunday, July 03, 2016      2 comments

I have a list of things that I need to accomplish today and I just don't want to even look at it. Motivation is just not there today. It's going to be a struggle. I'm hoping that once I get started the momentum will keep me going.... Read more
Week 60 - So Close...
Sunday, June 26, 2016      8 comments

I'm so close to 30lbs lost. I should get there this week. That makes me really excited. I'm getting back into numbers that I haven't seen for years and I'm doing it in a way that I think I can sustain. I'm not depriving myself. I'm changing... Read more
Week 59 - Happy Fathers' Day
Sunday, June 19, 2016      2 comments

I miss my dad today. He's been gone 6 years now and I don't often miss him anymore, but I do today. I know my mom is missing him too and I think that's the problem. Her brother was just diagnosed with cancer and I know she's having a tough ti... Read more
