Plan for new motivation
Recently, even though I haven't been losing weight, I have become more confident with my body. I think this had to do with me getting some nicer clothes, and I have really wanted to make some purchases. However, I have been doing really badly ... Read more
Today I was shopping for my nephew's birthday, so I went to Marshall's.
Many of you may not now that though I am 40 pounds lighter than my highest weight, I lost and gained back about 30 pounds last year... So frustrating!
While walk... Read more
I need to stop living in the past and be realistic
The fact of the matter is that since I stopped exercising (due to an injury) and stopped eating low carb I have gained the majority of the weight back.
Doing 'good' one week isn't going to get me back there. I need to do 'good' consistentl... Read more
February has to be better
Ever since I fell down the stairs this summer my fitness and nutrition has gone to crap and my weight has gone back up, almost to where I started. February will be better, it has to be.
I am going to have a long discussion with my daughter... Read more
No more 'tomorrow'
I am done waiting until tomorrow to get back on track. I have gone up a little bit, but I am still 25 pounds down from where I was last year.
Today started off pretty bad, but I tracked it anyway :)... Read more
Got pulled back in...
and I am glad I did.
I hadn't given up. I was still trying to make good choices. Actually started a competition with two co-workers (for money) as to who loses 25 pounds first, and I was the biggest loser (by .2 pounds) for week 1.
I... Read more
Though I try to consider Mondays as my official weigh-in day, I am relieved that I am about the same today, as I was the last time I weighed in on a Monday. It's been a rough past month where I haven't been able to get to the gym.
I've bee... Read more

I was going to wait until tonight to post this but I am on lunch at work and if I don't do something else I fear that I will hit up my manager's chocolate bowl..
This morning I woke up around five, though I didn't get out of my house to the... Read more
50 Things About Me (stolen from dawnwaterwoman)
1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
No. My mom thought my name sounded 'good' in relation to my brother's and sister's (terrible reason if you ask me)
2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRI... Read more
Need to get back on board.
It has been so hard for me to do anything the past few weeks. I haven't gained too much but I need to head back in the right direction. A spark friend posted on facebook how she photographed everything she ate before she ate it. I am going to... Read more
July 2, 2012
Since January 1, I have lost 37 pounds. Though my weight loss feels like it has slowed down, that is still a really good number, and the year is only half over. Ideally, I would like to match it for the rest of the year... (or do a little bett... Read more

A local store used to carry a spinach salad starter kit, but I haven't seen it in forever so I have been holding on to my last bag. I was craving a spinach salad and knew that if I used the last bag, my daughter would come home tomorrow wants s... Read more
Got up, but I didn't get to the gym until after 6. Not a good gym day. I don't know if it is because I am expecting my cycle or what but I had no get up and go and had a 'terrible' run. Hoping to do much better tomorrow. Another thing I didn... Read more
This morning's run
I hadn't worked out at all this weekend, but still chose to 'bump it up' on the treadmill this morning (there was also a guy there I was thinking I might be able to impress with my 'skills' lol)
So I warmed up for 2 minutes at 3 miles an ho... Read more
