I try my best to be a planner. It relaxes me to know when I will be doing what. I just tend to have problem with follow through for things that do not involve other people. Plus December is always a crazy month to end the year. Looking at how cl... Read more

I am so frustrated at the scale right now. I want to jump up and down on it until like in cartoons the spring bust out of it. I can't seem to break this plateau. I am fluctuating between 224 and 230. It makes me want to scream. I am tracking my ... Read more

It is frustrating when you get a new health gadget and it won't sync the way you want with sparkpeople. I love Sparkpeople but I wish Jawbone and it were more compatible. Because basically I want the Jawbone in regards to compatibility as the Sp... Read more

The holidays are a great time to try and restart a new lifestyle and lose weight. But here I go again. I have been slipping the last month of more. I reached a plateau of bouncing between 209-215. It was frustrating and It lasted for about a mon... Read more

I have stumbled yet again. I have stopped going to zumba. I am only walking the dogs the minimum amount. This is proof that if one part of your life is unbalanced and not satisfying you it will eventually seep into the rest of your life. I was d... Read more

Fall Season

Wednesday, September 10, 2014      4 comments

Here it goes again. One of my favorite times of the season and the beginning of the holiday season!!! It is also the worst food eating time of the year. Especially in the South. Every time I go to the store, everyone's carts are ... Read more

The view from the plateau vista

Tuesday, August 05, 2014      2 comments

Plateaus. They are annoying little buggers in weightloss. I can't seem to shake the 211-213 flip. It seems to be staying either one or the other depending on water intake. There are times this plateau makes me want to scream in frustration. But ... Read more

Support System

Why can family not be as supportive as friends? Maybe it is because I have awesome close friends that are extremely supportive and not judgmental. Where as my family, I know they love me, but they do not always feel supportive of my decisions. I... Read more

Ah-ha Moment

This past weekend I got a new "toy," a fitbit flex because I recently lost my SAT and didn't want to lose momentum while I had the willpower. So while I am still trying to figure out all the details of the fitbit and their website, I thought abo... Read more

Slipping, Not Stopping

Tuesday, April 29, 2014      2 comments

I have been bad this past weekish. It has been a gradual slide backwards though. It started with not closely tracking on the weekends when going home. Then it was breaking my routine of up at 5:30 to get in some strength exercises and yoga befor... Read more

Mini Goal

I have realized that I am horrible about keeping up blogging. It is not because I don't have things to rant about but because somethings I rant about a better for my handwritten journal and then I just don't seem to have enough hours in the day ... Read more

Diet Unrest

Saturday, January 04, 2014      0 comments

I don't consider myself on a diet. I am trying to change my lifestyle. I find it troubling that this time of year everyone is trying to diet. I believe that diets to lose weight do not work. Yes, you can lose weight on them but once you stop die... Read more

End of 2013, Start of 2014

Thursday, January 02, 2014      0 comments

The holidays were a stumbling block for me. I tried to prepare for them not to be but all the home-made food was so hard to track so I was not as diligent about tracking as I should have been. Plus I got lazy with my exercise. I didn't have a pa... Read more

Even through doing the holiday challenge, I have noticed a lack of motivation to exercise. I have only been getting exercise in once or twice a week instead of 5 days. I also noticed I have started being more lax on tracking food. On the bright ... Read more
