Back with the New Year....
Okay, yes, I went MIA for a few months. There was a lot going on and I just fell out of the habit of blogging and logging in and everything. Fortunately, some of those habits apparently stuck, since I managed to lose another 8 pounds in the in... Read more
Better Day Today
The apathy seems to have broken a little today. I've tracked all my food and water and even got plenty of exercise cleaning the house. It needed it badly, as my recent sluggishness had extend in that direction too. I'm still not feeling a tru... Read more
I'm still having trouble getting back into my rhythm lately. I haven't been that bad - no binges, mostly healthy foods, etc. - but I haven't been tracking or exercising enough and I can tell. Not in weight gain, in fact I may still have lost s... Read more
A Slow Process
It's been really tough getting back into the groove this past week. There's been a lot going on and I've just been having trouble reconciling my routine through it all, particularly with exercise. Business is picking up at work, and I'm having... Read more
Did I Miss Anything?
Okay, so I've been MIA for a week or so....
I'm not going to make excuses, I got into a funk and just didn't care. It happens. Apparently some of my better habits stuck anyway though, since I didn't gain anything.
Trying to get bac... Read more
When a "bad" day is really a "good" day....
Okay, so I was "bad" yesterday. I ate too much, I didn't exercise. But it was still a "good" day in my book and I'll tell you why, but it's a bit of a long story.
My fiance and I both have health problems (besides my weight) which I've ... Read more
Spreading the Spark Today
I haven't blogged in a while, but I had to comment on this today.
While I was out shopping I had a lady compliment me on the top I was wearing - one of my smaller sizes that I hadn't been able to wear in a while. I thanked her and made the... Read more
50 Things About Me
SEXBOBOMB borrowed this little "getting to know you" quiz from LBFROMBUFAD and LULUBELLE65 borrowed it from her, then NARNIAROSE2003 passed it along further. Looked like fun, so here goes -- if you want to steal it from me, be my guest, I'd lov... Read more
Adult ADHD and Long Term Success
I've figured out what's been wrong lately and how to get back on track! I haven't been accounting for my ADHD issues and, as such, let them derail me. I got caught up in trying to do the "100 days" thing and have spark streaks and just impress... Read more
Has anyone seen my mojo?
So, I had a bad spell this past week - depression, TTOTM, migraine, fibromyalgia acting up, etc. - and while I didn't totally mess up on food, I was definitely making my choices based on ease rather than healthiness and I didn't get enough exerc... Read more
Is this all there is to life? The daily struggle just to survive? I once had so much more, do I really need to start over again in my 40s? Is there time left in my life to get it all back again and, if so, where do I start? When I was in my ... Read more
100 Days - Day 18 - Retrain Eating Habits
Today was a little easier for me. While I can't willfully throw food out just to prove a point, I was never really forced into that "clean your plate" mentality. My grandmother was very big on that, and a lousy cook to boot, which left it a bi... Read more
100 Days - Days 15-17 - Catching Up....
Three for one today -
I didn't have anything appropriate in the house for Day 15, so I did Days 15 & 16 together after I'd been to the store. I got a Snicker's Peanut Butter Squared (I forgot to list this in my food yesterday - but it was... Read more
100 Days - Day 12 - Fuel or Filler
I suppose today's assignment really about making good vs. bad choices. In my mind, the only truly empty calories (which I would actually call wasted calories rather than "filler" - since they're not always filling either) are things like soda, a... Read more
100 Days - Day 10 - Appreciate Good Support
For today, I was supposed to ask someone to compliment me and respond positively....
I'm having a lot of trouble with it. I feel very uncomfortable outright asking someone for a compliment. I've gotten better at responding positively to t... Read more
