After a very unstable time since my last entry I am at a point to try and get back on track with things. My health remains poor although the tests have all come back normal or good. I know my exercise has decreased because part of my health prob... Read more
Ups and then many downs and all the weight I lost last year has come back which makes it harder to reach the ups again. My health has not been stable which is the large factor because the weight-increasing medicines, the extreme fatigue and over... Read more
Yesterday when I blogged I was positive and upbeat. The day went well until the very end. I don't know what went wrong, but I was suddenly very stressed and upset. I didn't want to do anything but curl in bed and cry. I didn't know what to cook ... Read more
My own "back on track"
So I've gained some weight back (not eating as well and I haven't been exercising like I was), but I'm not going to let that stop me. I admit, I still want to indulge a little at the fair if I go back this week (before it ends). I want to enjoy ... Read more
Worry and sleep
So I joined the "Better Sleep Challenge" yesterday. I used to have a great sleep schedule and did as well as I could given the things I could control. After having little sleep for a few days and running on fumes, then crashing and oversleeping,... Read more
I had fallen by the wayside some time ago and only recently come back to my SparkPeople account. It seems like a lot has changed for SparkPeople and since I have changed a lot, probably more so, I'm going to try to get back on track with being a... Read more
Long Time No See
So it's been a long time since I truly have been on SparkPeople. Life got in the way and nearly took me out of the picture completely. I am doing better though and ready to slowly get back into the swing of things with my health and SparkPeople.... Read more
Just chugging along right now with the program. Not much else to say, but I haven't updated this so I thought I might as well let people know that I haven't quit! I'm still working at this. I refuse to give up.... Read more
Again, the plague of soda
So with Thanksgiving I, like many others, got a four day weekend. This has been problematic because although I am trying to be good about limiting soda, I haven't been succeeding much.
During the work week it's easier because I start with a 12... Read more
Half way to first goal!
So I am about half-way toward my first goal. Once I reach it (I hope by the start of the spring semester), I will change my goal and shoot for another small amount. The more small goals I reach the more encouraged that I CAN do this and WILL do ... Read more
Lost 10 lbs, but not the right way...
So there is a major stomach bug going around town. I was the first in the office to catch it (yay?). I have never before gotten something that makes me sick enough to lose weight until now. 10 pounds in five days. Most of it is water weight whic... Read more
I misjudged a space and hit my pedometer on a filing cabinet. It cracked. I am very very sad. \

Quick Update: New Challenges
So I am "officially" taking on some new challenges.
1) Lose at least a pound per week
2) Try to lose 10 pounds per month
The second I have kinda already been shooting for but I have re-committed myself to... Read more
Working small groups first
Although you should start with the largest muscle groups first and then narrow down to specific ones, I am starting with kind of the opposite way. However, before I get any criticism, let me explain....I am starting (or "re-starting" maybe "re-e... Read more
Oy, Things are Difficult
So my last blog was about both set-backs and success. In some ways I am still at the point. In other ways, primarily how I feel about myself and my actions, are depressing. I haven't gained weight but I haven't really been trying to loose or mai... Read more
