While on my run today, I saw a young man, certainly much younger than I, very obese standing on his front step, smoking. This combined with one SP article I read this past week about how people estimate their weight one classification (ie. obes... Read more

I just realized that I have been in maintenance for 2 years as of today... I can hardly believe it's gone so fast. I weight about a pound more than when I hit goal 2 years ago... not too bad. I am really happy about this and there is NO WAY th... Read more

A lot of emotional stuff getting worked through lately and the stress of that is getting eaten and not exercised out. I know this. So I'm constantly battling this emotional stuff and trying to stay on track and it's not easy. But it's getting... Read more

I have been sleeping great every night and yet have been still feeling tired all week. I have no motivation to stay on track... and thanks you my dear hubby, I realized why last night. This is one of those stretches where I work 12 days st... Read more

the whole diet and exercise thing fell rather apart. No counting and I didn't exercise much... not proud of it, it is what it is and all I can do is restart now. But better momentum is sustaining me now. Don't know how things will go this... Read more

Pretty good week so far...

Thursday, July 01, 2010      2 comments

I'm not 100% on my stated goals, but I'd say I'm about 95%. That is good. My calorie burn is almost 1100 for the week already. I have been short of 10K steps 2 days and exercise 1 day. Not too bad. Jillian Michaels vids are at 3 so far... Read more

I was going to reset my goals last night, but I was too wiped out. I am feeling better this morning, so I have it all set to go. The only one I took out of my list from the other day was the committing to 2 shorter Jillian Michaels vids 2x... Read more
