Tuesday, August 06, 2013      2 comments

Over the past couple of weeks, I have lost and gained the same 10 pounds 3 times over. That's a lot of fluctuating you might think, but for me it is pretty normal. My "lowest" number keeps getting a little bit lower each time, so I know I am mak... Read more

I ate well yesterday right up until I got over-hungry after volleyball. We had friends over which was a blast, made ham steaks, maccaroni and corn on the cob. While this is NOT my usual diet, I had some of each with a side of tomatos. The ham st... Read more

Soon it becomes habit

Walked over to the soda cooler to get myself a diet mountain dew. Put my change in. Bent down and hit the water button. Damn! I am both annoyed and proud of my reflex. It truly does become habit if you do it often enough. ... Read more

I am a very optimistic person by nature. I work hard, and I smile and wag my tail at everyone I meet. I am also in a very social job. I feel like I am surrounded by friendly people all the time and I enjoy it. My sister on the other hand.... Read more

I haven't mentioned this in any of my recent blogs, but I have been working around a pretty consistent case of the "I can't breathes". Had no idea what it was so I went in to the doctor on Monday, and he asked if I was pregnant. No doc, but I h... Read more

I was talking to a guy at work today. He recently has been suffering from runners injuries. First it was his hip, now it has traveled down to his ankle. He said to me that he really just wants to give up, lay on the couch with his little white ... Read more

Food=Fuel. You wont get there by starving yourself.

Tuesday, July 16, 2013      1 comments

For the past week I have really made an effort to eat every hour, if not ever couple of hours. An apple here, a cucumber there. My main diet has been sweet potatoes and bananas, actually. It really helps to track my food then too, so I can see ... Read more

I have always known that I have a heavy frame. Usually when you tell people that though, they chalk it up to the "I'm big boned" or "it's baby fat" when you had your baby 6 years ago. I go to the doctor and they weigh me. I weigh in at 190 pound... Read more
