Wednesday, September 10, 2014      1 comments

One day at a time. Yesterday and today were both successful. In moments of weakness I am trying to remember the goal and forego the moment of pleasure that I want. I also am telling my husband about whether I am on goal or not as an accountabil... Read more

Still pretty unhappy about the scale. Anxiety ridden is probably a better phrase really but I stuck to a healthy well balanced diet. If I can repeat today a hundred times I will be at goal before you know it. ... Read more

Panic button...the scale is moving the wrong way. I want to cry. I have no one to blame but myself. I have chosen the short term pleasures and sacrificed the long term gain. Without determination there is no reward. I talked to my husband ... Read more

How could two days be so opposite?? Yesterday full of stress, pain, and anxiety and today much calmer, much more relaxed, full of peace. I took the day off from work and went to my happy place- the beach- I love it, the sound of the water, the ... Read more

Today was as relaxing as childbirth. That feeling where you are beyond exhausted, stressed, hormonal, and achy. On a positive note, I am with my planned calorie range. I call it the stress diet...you know the kind of stress that kills your app... Read more
Day Seven

Well, well, well, I have strayed. I threw my goals out the window and jumped on the salt, fat, and sugar train for a three day bender. The one good thing is that I still recorded the food eaten. I suppose awareness of how much I have strayed is... Read more
Day Three

Half way through day three and I just keep reminding myself that the key to success is simply willpower to do what I know I need too. In that I just completed a 3 mile run at a 9 min/mile pace and I have planned a healthy diet which I have stu... Read more

The day is half way through and there are a couple of accomplishments to celebrate. First, I planned and packed breakfast, lunch and a snack in advance and therefore stuck to that plan. Second, today is a "rest" day in my training program (I a... Read more
Day One

I am back and ready to get started. I am about 30lbs heavier than I want to be. After looking at my wedding photos from 3 weeks ago I realized how far from where I want to be I actually am. It has really saddened me that my reaction to these ph... Read more

So my biggest issue since I started my diet I believe is how I have defined it... Then I thought about my weaknesses...I really, really love sugar and once I have a littl... Read more
Oh Frustrated Me...

I have consistently been at least getting in an hour of exercise each day. Today however I wasn't able to and now I am a combo of tired and anxious. That kind of feeling you only get when your body gets used to feeling healthy and you take a t... Read more

Yep, that just happened, I got engaged. This past weekend the love of my life and best friend proposed to me on top of a mountain. The day in hindsight is pretty funny, I was the only one at his family’s camp who didn’t know that it was going ... Read more
What happened?

To my willpower with food? I used to be much better about getting back on the wagon with regard to food but now as I get older my willpower to do this has diminished. Exercise, not an issue. I can do that. Eating however, my demise. I actual... Read more

There are some people who are born to struggle, one in particular, a beautiful 6 year old boy, lost his life a week ago this past Monday due to a battle with a heart defect. I sit here and can't help but think how hard life was for this c... Read more

How?Ate out less & exercised more. Fitbit helps keep me honest. I can see the in versus out so I can't lie to myself about how active I am or if I am eating too much. I am still glad that I bought it. I also have used the fitbit to set... Read more
