Day Five: Still Having Victories, but It's Hard!
Wednesday, December 01, 2010      4 comments

It's late so I'll not write much. Best victory? I was going to meet friends for dinner and drinks. Decided to eat a healthy dinner before I went - had tuna flatbread and small cup of chili. At the hookah bar (yep, really) I ordered hummus an... Read more

Thanks to all my faithful friends who always have an encouraging word! Today has been another good day. For breakfast I did the free breakfast at the hotel and fortunately had healthy, high protein choices. Had 3 boiled eggs and 3 small piece... Read more
New Job: Day Three
Monday, November 29, 2010      3 comments

Today has been a good day. I have had to do a LOT of self-talk, but I've also done the whole "if I go to the room and this happens, I'll do this" and "I know I'm going to want to eat before bed, so I'll do this" to plan ahead. I'm out of town ... Read more

I decided I'm going to call my blog by the number of day and "New Job" to remind me that I have made fitness my vocation. I hate to mess up an order so I'll use my OCD to keep me from missing a blog! :) Yesterday I did not focus on what I ate... Read more

Planning Ahead
Sunday, July 11, 2010      3 comments

Well, I'm still on the "one moment doing good" the next several hours not so good. But I'm still here, so I guess that's a plus. Thanks to all of my "old faithful" encouragers (especially Joy!) who haven't given up on me yet. This week I am o... Read more
Then I'll Win!
Wednesday, July 07, 2010      3 comments

Well... I MADE IT TO THE GYM!! That's the good news. The bad news is that it LIKED TO KILL ME. I made 20 minutes on the elliptical and then died. BUT at least it's not back to the 3 minutes and then dying. So I know I can get it back - and ... Read more
Still Trying to Figure This Thing Out...
Tuesday, July 06, 2010      5 comments

Not going to say much. I'm not sure I'm fully motivated yet, but I am making baby steps again. Trying to make healthy choices in the minute and not plan ahead because then I get discouraged. Exercised over the weekend, brought my lunch today ... Read more
What Are My Stressors?
Thursday, May 20, 2010      3 comments

The last three days have been really bad. I woke up on Tuesday with a raging headache that lasted most of the day and has been in and out ever since. I have also been EXTREMELY depressed and anxious. It is "that time of the month" and I know ... Read more
Sunday Sucked
Monday, May 17, 2010      4 comments

Hope that's not offensive, but no other way to describe it. BUT no worries - that was yesterday and today is today. I packed my gym bag this morning, put together my protein shake and packed my lunch. So I'm starting out today with a will!... Read more
What Does a Reward Look Like?
Sunday, May 16, 2010      6 comments

It's funny, but when I was trying to think of the Blog title for today and I thought SUNDAY, I thought "day of rest" and immediately thought "rest from my diet." Which just goes to show that taking good care of myself is still not defined prope... Read more
Still Here!
Saturday, May 15, 2010      3 comments

I feel good about yesterday. I made much better choices, because I PLANNED to make better choices at the outset of my day. I'm doing the same thing today. Plus, I'm starting my day on Spark people, which really seems to help me get focused. ... Read more
TODAY I will be Good to Myself
Friday, May 14, 2010      6 comments

have had NO MOTIVATION for a long time now. Oh, my MIND is motivate. Every day I wake up and kick myself mentally for losing all the ground I had gained. I had gone for over THREE MONTHS and had actually (I thought) developed the habit of taking... Read more
Letter to My Son Today
Sunday, January 24, 2010      4 comments

I have talked about my (almost) 20 year old son on here some. He is the son that is almost just like me in temperament and physical stuff, the sensitive and artistic one - the overweight one, too. I hate that he had to inherit the bad with the... Read more
Grateful for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Monday, January 18, 2010      2 comments

Today is a holiday set aside to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Last year I decided that I would honor him by going up to as many people of color as I could and asking them for a hug and tell them that I love them! It was fun and most people... Read more
