I need accountability

Saturday, August 31, 2013      3 comments

Hi everyone. As you can see on my ticker, I'm well over 300 lbs and I love myself. But lately I've been having this huge urge to lose weight, not necessarily to make myself happier with myself, but to have a more fulfilling life. I'm single, alw... Read more

Work out equipment

Saturday, August 24, 2013      0 comments

So I have some resolution to the whole exercise machine drama. I heard back from the manager that I spoke with and he was able to offer me the upgrade with some cost to me. They would obviously give me credit for the purchase price I already pai... Read more

Back from vacation

Friday, August 23, 2013      1 comments

I'm officially back from vacation. Tonight is my first night back at work and it's almost over. So I'm just dropping by to say hi and that I will write more tomorrow (possibly). I will mention that I've been doing great at not drinking pop, it's... Read more

Follow Up

Thursday, August 08, 2013      1 comments

So this is a follow up to yesterday's blog. First off though, I was able to get in some of my walk this morning. As soon as I started, I realized that I needed to cut the grass before I go on an extended vacation tomorrow. So I was able to walk ... Read more

Obstacles Today

Wednesday, August 07, 2013      3 comments

This morning I had an appointment set up for the technician to come out and fix my exercise machine. He was scheduled between 9am and 1pm. I didn't start walking because I didn't know when he was going to be there. I finally decided at 11:10 to ... Read more

The Good and the Bad!

Monday, August 05, 2013      1 comments

So, the good news is I'm doing great on my walking. Using the new pedometer on my phone I found that I'm averaging a good pace. I'm maxing out and even exceeding my daily step count of 10,000 steps. With my stride length, it is translating into ... Read more

Noticeable differences

Sunday, August 04, 2013      3 comments

I have been doing very well at drinking my 8 glasses of water every day, sometimes more. It took a few days for my body to regulate the amount of fluid I was taking in...but that's all better now. The main thing I have noticed from drinking all ... Read more

Motivation...again

Saturday, August 03, 2013      2 comments

Yesterday after work, I had plans to be active but then I really wasn't . I checked in with SparkCoach in the evening and watched the video from Coach Nicole, which had me inspired. Then at the end there was a quote "Losing weight is hard, maint... Read more

Motivation....and other random thoughts

Tuesday, July 30, 2013      1 comments

I figured this out on my own yesterday morning before work, that if I got dressed in something other than my PJs, then I just had more motivation to be up and doing something. I didn't do a whole lot, but what I did do, I felt good about it. ... Read more

Today's Lunch Menu

Monday, July 29, 2013      3 comments

For lunch today I made a very yummy meal. I'm a huge fan of coming up with random recipes in my mind and then seeing if they turn out good. The other passion I have with cooking is to use fresh chunky veggies. Today I decided I wanted to try som... Read more

Back Again

Sunday, July 28, 2013      5 comments

Well....I'm back again and I would love to say that it's under better circumstances. The last time I wrote was well over a year ago. This is what has happened in that time: I went back out to sea, this time out of Alaska for two and a half ... Read more

Interesting Combination

Sunday, April 15, 2012      1 comments

So I've been trying to eat fruit every night at work (on the night shift again) and tonight I also wanted to eat my yogurt. So I was thinking, well I'll try it as a dip, if that doesn't work then I'll eat it separately. Well to my surprise it do... Read more

New Approach

Tuesday, March 20, 2012      1 comments

Well I've been doing some looking into it and I'm going to start a new approach tomorrow. I'm still trying to get more water in during the day so I bought a 28oz water bottle for at work. Hopefully that will encourage me to drink even more. I've... Read more

Distant but not Inactive

Tuesday, March 13, 2012      3 comments

I know I haven't posted in a while but that doesn't mean that I haven't been every bit as active as before. I did kind of hit a desparation point yesterday because I see my co-workers who are all on their own diet/fitness programs and they are s... Read more

Last Week had it's up and downs!

Monday, February 20, 2012      0 comments

Well, last week wasn't the greatest as far as watching what I ate and working out. Thursday I spent the evening cleaning, Friday I had a girls day, so that meant tracking food was out, and Saturday we had a really severe thunderstorm which knock... Read more
