Yes, second blog entry of the day
I just re-read my entire blog here, from when I started over a year ago, and I am sad to report that I am in exactly the same spot that I was last year at this time. Feeling the same things, struggling with the same things...only things that ar... Read more
Ok, so today...
I added 5 more minutes to my gym workout, but I am eating horribly. I will probably come in under my calorie "limit", but I will do it by only eating a jelly donut and some Cadbury mini eggs. Some days are better than others, right?
I was... Read more
Well, that's pretty sad.
My last blog entry was from last July. I won't say I fell off the wagon after I departed from here, at least not until about December...
I am going to try really hard not to focus on the negative, but the positive of the fact that I am bac... Read more
I like tracking food here waaaaaaaaaaaay better
we'll see how well it goes when I weigh in on Wednesday at WW, but I like to see the breakdowns of carbs, protein, etc...... Read more
I am back. And I am frustrated
Ok. I fell off the map here for about 3 months. One month I just fell off. The last 2 months I have been going to Weight Watchers. I am only down 3.4 pounds in those 2 months. I am going to the gym more than ever, and in the past couple of ... Read more
Day one of the return
Bleah. Some days I detest the gym and today was one of them. But I was there, and I did it. Today, I will take small victories.... Read more
Hello sparkers...I am back
Its been a month. I thought about you often but I just couldn't make it here. But I am back. Here's a little update.
1. I am actually a pound lighter than when I left here a month ago, and that is a miracle in itself. I ate every girl... Read more
Thank you for all the kind words and goodies yesterday
I just needed a kick in the pants. I am progressing forward in a few areas of my life. Wish me luck!

I need a spark
Getting sick really threw a wrench into my progress here. When I got sick, I didn't go to the gym from Tuesday through Sunday, then I went back for 4 days, and stopped. And I have been eating everything in my path.
I went back to the gy... Read more
I am not really feeling it this week
I am not sure if I am still getting over the strep, or if the fact that I am so behind from being sick all last week just has me tired, but I am going through the motions this week. And I guess that's ok, since in the past I would have stopped ... Read more
Back to routine
I think I am about 88% better. I managed to roll out of bed this morning and did 45 minutes on the treadmill. I am starting to use the programmed workouts on the treadmill, and I had a scheduling error and only programmed in 45 minutes, but it... Read more
I have been off the grid since Monday night with a bad case of strep throat. I am still recovering. I can't believe how tired I still am.
I am happy to report that I lost 4.5 inches last month! I am ignoring what the scale says (although... Read more
Today I am a little better...a little
Yesterday was a tough one. In addition to what I talked about in my blog post, there were a couple of other things that really knocked my self esteem down a few pegs and that is hard to shake. I have always relied heavily on the opinions of ot... Read more
remember how a couple of days ago i was all cheery and bright?
And a few blog entries ago I said I wasn't going to watch the scale and I was focused on how I felt? Well it was crap. At least for today. I am not losing an ounce, in fact, I put on a pound this week. I tracked everything, I went to the g... Read more
I feel like I don't have much to write about these days
I am not struggling that much (which I guess is a good thing, right?) Its not an issue to go to the gym-my only obstacle is when my kids complain about me going. I am not really struggling with food, although I guess I am always 1 meltdown awa... Read more
