Up early on purpose
Today we had to be up at 0630 to get ready to leave out of the house by 0710, for a meeting we had. We did this no issue, left a little early, and were just on time. (I walk slowly). I came home, relaxed a bit, drank a lot of water, then decided... Read more
My first 11 minute workout!
Okay so I am damned determined to make this work. I need to loose another 32lbs for my insurance, so I am going too. Yesterday I did my research, I found low impact and easy for my body work out vids here on sparkpeople. I found one that is an 1... Read more
First Sunday of the rest of my life

The past week
This past week has been very chaotic. Eating was more of an after thought most days, and I didn't think about keeping check of my food. Tomorrow will be busy as well, then Friday will be relaxing and planning. I went to my Informational Meeting ... Read more
Yesterday was just kinda random for me, couldn't keep track of much. Today I am to figure out if I am really craving sugary things or is it habit. I honestly think, since I don't eat a lot of things just because they are sweet, that it's a cravi... Read more

Tame your sweet tooth challenge: Day 5.
Today's article was about learning to read our labels, at least where sugar is concerned. I have been learning to pay attention to Calories and at least look over Salt, but sugar was never a big issue. Now I will be looking to pay attention to t... Read more
Tame your sweet tooth challenge: Day 4.
Okay so I took the "Do you know your sugar" quiz. Out of 10 questions I got 2 right. I don't know crap about sugar, I am pretty sure the only reason I got the two right is because I just guessed right. So I guess I need to read up on the differe... Read more
Tame your sweet tooth challenge: Day 3.

Tame your sweet tooth challenge: Day 2.
It says to Critique My Cravings. I have never really kept track of when I really crave sweets, I know I seem to crave them more at that time of the month, but usually near it for me. Other than that, it seems almost like it's random. I go shoppi... Read more
Well now this is surprising. I have chips right in front of me and I keep looking at it wondering why its not this Mickey Mouse head that I get from Walmart that has Apple slices, Grapes and Cheddar cubes in it. I never thought there would be a ... Read more
My reasons for getting healthy.
I've just realized that while getting healthy is a good enough reason to get healthy, I don't really have any set reasons to actually keep getting healthy. So here are just a few reasons (for myself) to get healthy.
1. To be able to take LO... Read more
Well I know it's been awhile and that some of my friends here have been wondering if I'm even still alive and well now you know I am. Things have been up and down around my house it's not funny. I finally got my medical insurance straightened ou... Read more
