It's been awhile since my last blog.... I started going downhill again. But June has been a good month so far! I think I have finally got the sugar cravings out of my system. I have been tempted many times, but it is getting easier to say no. It... Read more
So one of the issues that has been causing me anxiety - which led me to overeating and just "not caring" about my health - is our finances. I made a big blunder this past year in our taxes and we ended up owing several thousand dollars this year... Read more
Am I Eating Enough?
So I had a great day yesterday. I was right at 1100 calories. They were quality calories too. Protein and veggies. I didn't workout, but 200+ of those calories were from a delicious, generous, glass of Moscato. Today, I felt blah.... low on ener... Read more
Weighed myself this morning and I was 156.4. Not as bad as I thought, but still not good! I have had a good breakfast, good lunch, and have plans for a nice dinner that keeps me under my calories. The problem, though, is DH decided to have a gro... Read more
My computer just said it is going to update and restart in 4 minutes whether I like it or not, so I will be brief. Things have not been going so well with my desire to get back on track. After today, things are slowing down a bit to where I thin... Read more
Did not do well today at all.... Over ate big time at lunch, then requested yogurt place for dessert where I piled on all the candy toppings. Came home and binged on crackers, granola bars, and cereal. I kept telling myself "it's Mothers Day"...... Read more
Always a reason for an exception
Whew, so my plan for this upcoming week has been successful. Yesterday at work, I stayed out of our breakroom all day and I did not even tempt myself. I heard it was delicious. I kept feeling like I had to be accountable here on SparkPeople so t... Read more

Hey SparkFriends! I am finding I am having less and less time to spend on SparkPeople and I guess I may be outgrowing it a little bit???? I don't know.... But anyways, I find most of my extra time that I have to spend on the computer is spent on... Read more
My amazing husband! (pic)
I could not do this without my husband. I am realizing more and more what a blessing it is to have a husband, life partner, who is willing to make this lifestyle change wi... Read more
So it's happened twice this past week. I was referred to as "small".
At CrossFit when we were doing box jumps one of the screws popped out, but it looked like I jumped on it too hard and "broke it". When I showed it to the trainer, I apolog... Read more
