Well, for a shortened week, it sure has seemed long. I ended up being busy for the rest of the week, and I wasn't able to get to the gym again, but I am going to go tomorrow morning for about an hour.
I'm really worried though. I feel like... Read more
First time back since July!
On Monday, I decided to head back to the gym for the first time in months. I managed to hop on an Arc trainer and do the interval program for thirty minutes. This managed to confirm that I am desperately out of shape. :) After the first two mi... Read more
Day 2 of blogging
Well, today I didn't really do too much with exercise - although I did clean my house. I suppose that counts at least a little bit...right?
I read some of this month's best blogs and I have to say, they were extremely inspiring. The peopl... Read more
Welcome Back ~ Vacation mode for too long!
Well, I finally came back. I haven't been on here since before Christmas and I feel gross for not sticking to my plans. Luckily, I haven't gained anything back, but I do need to get back on track with eating - cookies have been my mainstay for... Read more
Well, this December has been crazy, busy, and pretty terrific so far! Crazy because everything seemed to happen this month - bills, the car, job applications...you name it, I've been through it this December. Thank goodness I didn't have bad n... Read more
So, for the past year I have pretty much maintained my weight loss. In 2010, I was working with a personal trainer for 6 months and I managed to lose 20 pounds. Yay! Then the training ran out, so I was on my own. I did fairly well, until thi... Read more
Wow - where did the time go?
So, apparently I have taken a break from Sparkpeople for almost 2 weeks. How in the world did that happen? No excuses!!!! I need to get back on track and start tracking my food intake and my exercise again. And blogging!
The past two wee... Read more
Who Knew Walking So Much Would Hurt??? LOL
So, I have been tracking my steps since I started Spark People. Today I found that I walked 7.3 miles, which is equivalent to 15898 steps. WOW! Yesterday, I had walked over 12000 steps. The reason for all these steps? My car is broken, and I... Read more
Feeling pretty good today
Well, as stated above, I am feeling pretty good today. I`m hoping that maybe I am over the miserables for at least a little while. It helps to write things down, I think. This is the first time that I have been even remotely c... Read more
Sorry I missed yesterday!
So, yesterday I got caught up in marking my students' assignments, and then started watching Netflix. I completely lost track of time and forgot to do my daily "awesome" blog. I guess that means I have to do double duty t... Read more
Not so awesome night, but the day was better
So last night, just before I crawled into bed, I discovered that the sewage drain in my laundry room had overflowed and I had a huge mess throughout the basement. Not fun, especially cleaning up the nastiest smelling stuff I think I have ever s... Read more
Discouraged, but Optimistic
Isn't that such a contradiction in terms? But that's how I'm feeling right now. I have managed to lose 1 pound in the past two weeks, but I have also noticed that my eating habits are starting to get better(they still need a lot of improvement... Read more
Okay, so this is my first time doing a blog, and I am hoping that it will help, at least a little.
I've been trying to diligently eat well (ok, somewhat better) this week than I have in the past. As I am entering my food intake into the da... Read more
