Paying the price
The last few days I went off the bandwagon. I still tracked, but when the calories end up over 3,000 weight gain is expected. And I did gain weight. Now I need to get back on track. This morning was a good start. Sent daughters off to schoo... Read more
Today I traveled to a larger city to do some shopping, and so there was plenty of eating out and I'm way over on calories. I know it, but I want to move on from it. Yesterday I worked hard outside, so it balances out.... Read more
I wasn't able to maintain and the weight is back up. I watched it creep up on me all within a year of working at a call center. Bad place to work, and even worse for the health. I no longer have that job, so I am hoping to start undoing the g... Read more
I have to laugh at myself sometimes. Yesterday I went and had my nails done. I have never had them done before... so I'm having to learn the ins and outs of them. So far I think this is going to be the last time I have them done because they ... Read more
Off and on I've been. At least I haven't backtracked too far. I'm still within a healthy range, but I don't want to ignore the gains either. I just had a birthday this weekend, and now my fridge is full of sugary yummies. Lemon cupcakes from... Read more
I'm having a hard time. Since May I haven't been scheduled to work until 11, and with summer vacation for the kids, we've been sleeping in and staying up late. It hasn't been good for us. My energy has been nil, and I have been eating... crap... Read more
Needing to update
I haven't been using the phone app as much as I thought I would. I wished it would track milage, because that was a good incentive to go just a tad farther.
I read a weird food article on the dangers of soy, which did use questionable evid... Read more
Trying a new way
I took a break from SP, and I survived. I decided to be nice to myself and update our phone service (switched providers) and so we now have new spiffy phones. I will be doing most of my SP from that now, and so I dropped the team goals. This ... Read more
My personal life has had its ups and downs, and right now its waaaaaay down. The good news is that I do have some support from my family and friends. And I have learned how to manage the anxiety build up.
My kids are away from me right no... Read more
I've been using my treadmill now that it's cleared off again. Instead of following the C25K program exactly, I've been using the calorie goal setting on the treadmill. It uses run/walk combos for 30 minutes, which is very similar to C25K. I w... Read more
Yesterday for Mother's Day we blew in the new fiberglass material into our attic. It desperately needed it, as the thickest it was was less than 2" deep. Now it's at least 18", giving it a R-value of 40+. I can already tell the difference bec... Read more
Back in the saddle
I've been ho-humming it for awhile, not really tracking, not really putting an effort into this. I went back a couple of pounds, but that's not bad either. I'm still in my range of ok (normal BMI is a wide range), but I'm not getting rid of th... Read more
Ok, I can call myself crazy all I want, let's see if you agree.
I had this notion that I would crochet myself a monokini (a bikini with tummy coverage like a one-piece, but bare in the back). So I did. I used a beautiful red cotton and it... Read more
Where did my workouts go?
So much for the C25K... I've stayed away a bit too long. I still will walk the one I signed up for, but since I haven't been trying, I don't think I'll really "run" the virtual one. Oh well. I have been stressed out, and I've been coping pret... Read more
There's always hope
My life has been crazy and hectic. I feel like I've been sideswiped a few times over these last six months, and the stress has been at a new high. My weight and exercise haven't been priorities. When I do work out, I do feel better. I'm find... Read more
