Is anger a real motivator
Saturday, September 22, 2012      0 comments

I've done nothing for a week. Since I have returned home from my "retail therapy" trip, nothing. I think because it wasn't really therapy. I just realized how crappy I feel and look. You know the feeling, trying on jeans, and every style fit... Read more

I need to get out of this slump!! I had today off work to deal with the window mess. Hopefully, I'll have a new window in a week. I don't want to look at the plywood anymore than I have to. It depresses me. I did nothing today. I did ... Read more
Crappy weekend

Where to start? I was looking forward to this, the long weekend, summer's last kick at the can so to speak. The long range started out looking good. I made plans to head up to my parents cottage. Mom wanted to have a yard sale and it was her... Read more
Cardio workout

Today was my first real cardio workout since breaking my ankle @ the end of April. Even though, hauling my butt around on crutches was no easy feat. I think if I can find good workout videos on Youtube and get back to the gym I belong to I can... Read more

I still can't get through an 8 hour shift without wearing my aircast. I've had some crazy shifts where I'm basically on my feet for 7 of my 8 hours. I limp to my car and drive home knowing exercise is out for the day. I'm going to Hawaii... Read more
Tracking Food------FAIL
Sunday, June 24, 2012      3 comments

Uh huh, what is it about tracking food that I find so tedious? Already have fallen off the wagon on this one. For the most part, my food choices have been wise with the odd "treat". Except last night. Went out for coffee with a good fri... Read more

I got the okay to return to work. Still need to arrange a meeting @ HR with the union, manager, me and the HR rep for a gradual return to work. Is 5 shifts in 2 weeks before returning to a regular .8 rotation gradual?? LOL. Crossing my fin... Read more

Sigh. The weather is crap this week. The temperature went down to 3 last night. Really? Mid June? I'm supposed to be trying to walk some distance with the air cast on. I can't bring myself to go outdoors when it's damp, windy and cool. ... Read more

They say never start anything new on a Monday. They say, never start anything new on a day, where you previously tried something new and failed. Hm. So, rather than wait until Monday to "be careful" with my food choices, I started today. Bec... Read more

Today is June 2, 2012. On April 27th, I twisted my ankle for the second time in a week sustaining not only a severe sprain but an avulsion fracture of the talus (part of the ankle bone). So, my weight loss program at Herbal Magic was put on ho... Read more

Today is Feb. 5th. I should have been out of this house hours ago. I should have gone to my Zumba class. Oh well, no sense flogging myself. There's always next weekend. I made it to the gym on Monday and Wednesday and started back on my cou... Read more

I did it! I broke the plateau...finally. After sitting at 148 for 2 months, I weighed 145 on Monday. A reason to carry on. 5 lbs from my first goal weight of 140. My second goal weight is 135 and the final being, 130. That one is for re-ev... Read more

So, here it is, January 2nd now. I have so much work to do in my life. The biggest rock around my leg is my computer. I am an addict. I can sit for hours and research, read, listen to music, play games, edit photos and the list goes on. It'... Read more

July 4th. One week left of work and then 3 weeks of holidays. I'm hoping I can maintain my eating habits while not at work. When I'm home I tend to eat very little as I'm just not hungry. The weight is finally coming off. Sad to say that it... Read more

I've managed to finally move my ticker!! I've lost 10 lbs and my clothes are loose on me. What a feeling. I've lost a total of 14 " from my body. I haven't had the chance to go to the gym as much as I'd like. I can't seem to push myself to... Read more
