So, I planned to blog EVERYDAY, but as when you vow to absolutely do something, it usually doesn't happen. Work was crazy busy this weekend, and I got a little side tracked and didn't blog. On the bright side, my attitude was much improved! M... Read more
Day 1

It is one of my goals to blog everyday in 2013. Writing is a very cathartic experience, somehow putting feelings into words on paper can really change your perspective. I'm not happy with who I've become, physically, emotionally, financially, ... Read more
The final straw?

In my family we refer to the extra weight around the middle as a fupa (some say jelly/fat roll/muffin top) whatever you want to call it. It's a funny thing around us, a silly name for something we hate. Today, while playing with my sister's kid... Read more

Thank the Lord for small victories! I managed to stay within my calorie range, only had one non-diet soda, and did 35 minutes of strength training! It's only one day, but I gotta start somewhere! Hope everyone has a fantastic evening! ... Read more
Am I the only one?

Just wondering, does anyone else ever find themselves moving forward, making progress, and then bam you're right back where you were? I don't mean just with diet and exercise either. Certainly in those areas, but what about in your spiritual l... Read more

Glad to be back on Spark. I know what works, I was doing great, but got sidetracked. Getting back to what I know works for me. Gotta stay motivated and have some discipline. I will prevail...even if I have to start again...a bajillion times ... Read more

So, I've been MIA for a while. Life just got in the way and I made the wrong things priority in my life. Thankfully, my focus has been redirected to that which matters. I'm coming to realize that losing weight is not going to solve my problem... Read more

I've spent the last seven years working 7p-7a. My life has been backwards ever since I started this, and today my boss calls to say a day shift job has opened up. Well, it's actually 11a-11p, which is great because I hate to get up early. I'v... Read more
Great day!

Had a really great day! Church was awesome this morning, got to see my little cousin ask for and receive Christ's salvation. So awesome! God has called each of us believers to evangelize to the lost. Jesus said He didn't come for those that ... Read more
Insomnia strikes again.

Sitting here watching the TV, been up since 0700, after only 4 hours of sleep. As I'm getting older, it's getting harder and harder to switch back and forth between days and nights. Seven years of 7p-7a shift work has completely jacked up my c... Read more
Doing good!

I've managed to stay pretty well with my calorie range lately. I've gone over A few times, but nothing beyond repair. I finally hit the 10 lb. Loss mark on Thursday, so I'm stoked about that. Hoping to be down at least another two pounds this... Read more
Probably the only time in my life I will be grateful for insomnia.

I haven't been able to sleep, so I thought I would take my before pictures I had talked about earlier. Well, I was down to my skivvies, looking in the mirror, and was quite disgusted. Then, I pulled out the old camera and snapped a frontal, pr... Read more
Feeling good!

Well, I'm already done with my workout today...my first full workout in about 2 weeks (sad I know), but I'm back! It felt really good, and I was surprised to see how much easier it felt compared to the first time. It's kind of silly, but I'm s... Read more
A picture is worth a thousand words.

So, I've struggled off and on the entire time I've been doing this. I've been on and I've fallen off, and got back on. I don't deny the fact that I'm overweight, otherwise I wouldn't be here. The point I'm getting to is this, I've taken my me... Read more
Just blah.

It's been a week since I've blogged...since I've done anything really. Not sure what the problem is, but I feel just kinda blah. Tired, stressed, irritated, and don't really know why. Well, I do, but I just tend to let a lot of little things ... Read more
