I'm struggling. I have been since Thanksgiving. The one thing I don't wonder about anymore is whether or not I should log in daily. If there is any life line it's daily check in her on SP. A week ago today I took my six year old into the E... Read more

Time for some more adaptations to the lifestyle

Wednesday, February 11, 2015      4 comments

It's over. Whatever chemistry was working to get the 40 off has now been adapted by my body and I need to move into a deeper level of commitment to this whole healthy living thing. I can't say I've plateaued that is way too noble. No, I've been ... Read more

I really needed to just get a lot of that off my chest and you were all so supportive. After I showered I decided to skip hair and makeup and then I saw that SPROUTLET thought that was the best thing I could do for myself and she was right so b... Read more

What a bunch of BS. I read my last few blogs and they are so hopeful which is not at all how feel these days. It seems every good decision like New Year's and putting the scale away etc...immediately leads to two times the negative choices. Yes... Read more

.............but always worth it. Last year I decided that we would start a new tradition in our home for New Year's Eve. We had salad bar for dinner with iced tea. The idea is that we would wake up on the 1st a day ahead of the game and in... Read more

Nasty. That's how you feel. It is not fun and the festivities are not yet over. No more punishing yourself or whatever reason causes you to make decisions that only cause you pain, disgust, depression and feelings of hopelessness. Ne... Read more

I am so surprised by my own behavior. I so know what I want to do and I just am having a hard time getting back to living my healthy lifestyle. It's extremely frustrating and I feel my confidence slipping a little more each day. A few months ago... Read more

baby steps back

I'm not totally sure what is going on. There was a time only a few weeks ago I swore I'd never mistreat myself the way I had in the past. I was feeling so good and on top of it even through some stressors. The whole thing has gone to pot and I c... Read more

I'm not going to lie it's been pretty junkie around here for the last few months. I've had some adult kid issues of the "I'm in my twenties and have decided all of my problems are due not to my decisions but to your bad mothering!" variety. Joy.... Read more

Well I was doing oh so great and feeling invincible these last few months and then decided to set some pretty ambitious goals to meet by my 40th birthday which is now less than a month away. I won't be meeting those goals. I have to say I... Read more

I finally got past the 190's which is a bit of a relief because it's WAAAYYYYYY too close to the threshold (200) . The mental barriers are the hardest to get through. I'm still not able to exercise so that's a bummer but I am also happy... Read more

The high schoolers started back today, the rest start on Wednesday. I have been holding out under 200 but doinking around with the same four pounds. up, down, lather, rinse repeat. My baby is two months old today and so it's time to get back to ... Read more

I thought I'd share some pics from last weekend with my sparkbuddies. On the health side, I made some great decisions on the day of the baptism but then the next day I helped a friend pack up and clean for her move to Wisconsin and also to... Read more

As I go along, I ponder throughout the day why I want to reach for food (or yummy drink) when I am already nourished and hydrated. We all know the deal about hiding from our feelings and eating when we are bored etc... I have found that along wi... Read more
