And it starts...
School started here last week like I'm sure it did in much of the country. The joys of the public school system - my son brings home everything that goes around. He woke us up in the middle of the night Tuesday throwing up all over the place. He... Read more
Doctor called ...at 10pm
Typically if I get a call after about 8pm, I freak out. Imagine my panic when it's my DOCTOR calling at 10pm!
I went in for a follow up for my hospital visit and to get antibiotics for this stupid ear infection I managed to get over the we... Read more
Well, I finally got my office moved home. I went up to work today and brought home my desk and some other small things, but something unexpected happened while I was there. I actually was fighting tears. I don't think I've ever cried over a job,... Read more
Yoga kicks @$$
So, I did the DDP Yoga DVD again today (gym 3 times, then yoga 3 times a week on alternating days). I did the main intro (Diamond Dozen) then the first actual workout (Energy) and I tell you what, I am sweating like I just ran a marathon. I feel... Read more
I got a new heart rate monitor over the weekend and I've decided that I hate it. When I get on the elliptical at the gym, I work my little heart out. Today when I got done with my workout, the machine said I had burned 399 calories! Awesome, rig... Read more
I got my DDP Yoga DVDs today and I am stoked! I went through the Diamond Dozen and its true about the moves jacking your heart rate up. Doing Road Warrior and Cables and Curls had my heart rate up to the point it gets on the elliptical. And even... Read more
So, I've said a few times that this time I'm doing things differently. I've realized that my obsessive compulsive behavior hurts my weight loss efforts because I jump in head first and kill myself for about 2 weeks. Then I lose all my steam and ... Read more
I am so tired this week, and when I'm tired all I want to do is eat. It's a tough habit to break, but I'm doing my best. I have been loading up on water, which seems to help. And I don't really have much 'junk' food in my house anymore, so that ... Read more
I know I've said that the scale doesn't matter, but when it starts going UP it annoys me. Stupid contraption needs to be demolished.
On a happy note, my sugar was 176 this morning - much better than the 256-290 it was three weeks ago. Not t... Read more
Weekends are always tough for me and this one was no exception. We ate out today and I completely gave in to frustration last night and ate way too much. But while I was kicking myself for failing again, something occurred to me.
This isn't a ... Read more
And the frustration continues
I'm using eMeals to plan my dinners and it really helps because the program tells me what to cook and gives me a grocery list to go with it. Well, I've been doing well, I thought, but t I night when I told the hubby what we were having for dinne... Read more
I know the scale isn't the be all, end all of this journey, but we all fall victim to its hold over us. This morning was weigh in and I've gained 3 lbs this week. I have been careful watching what fuel I put into my body this week and I think I'... Read more
Another small win
Tonight's planned dinner got derailed when hubs called and asked when we were eating. I met him at Chili's without a chance to plan what I was going to e... Read more
If you have ever read one of my blogs, you probably know I'm an emotional eater (aren't we all?). One of the things that I really struggle with is a clean plate. I don't care if I am stuffed to the gills and already sick to my stomach (yes, I've... Read more
Working on it!
This last couple of weeks have been tough with the hospital visits and then the resulting sinus infection (I hate hospitals). But I've been trying really hard to make good choices even though sometimes they are hard to stick with.
This mor... Read more
