  • Short

    6/23/2017 2:38:03 PM, by NEOMATTLAC

    Well, I found out why I don't go to be early. I've "taught" those around me that I'm available for messaging at night. I went to bed at 9, but didn't go to sleep until 12:30pm. I think I'll finally use the function of my phone that makes it go silent at a specified time. Tonight, I need to work on... Read more

  • Day 20 Progress Blog

    6/22/2017 7:18:22 PM, by NEW_ME_IN_2017

    Today is day 20 since I decided to re-commit and unfortunately I am not where I wish I was at. HOWEVER, I know I have not been 100% committed. Being sick and also getting my implanon put in had deterred exercise. The downside is that I am going on vacation soon and I don't know how to approach it. D... Read more

  • Working Through a Problem

    6/22/2017 4:17:33 PM, by NEOMATTLAC

    Every day now feels like it ends in failure. I keep having great intentions on Monday and by Wednesday, I'm messed up. My general goal is to hit the gym 5 days a week, with 4 times being my minimum. Lately, it's been hard to just go 1 time a week. I know I always feel best when I get done with a wor... Read more

  • Down a pound.

    6/19/2017 8:56:34 PM, by POEDAUGHTER7

    Poedaughter7 Lost 0.5 lbs since last weighing in! Poedaughter7's lost 14.5 lbs so far. Woot, down a bit since I re-started class. The best diet plan in the world is being AWAY from the fridge. It is important to be so busy you only eat when you are really hungry, and not just bored. Extra work and s... Read more

  • Running and Dancing

    6/19/2017 2:51:28 PM, by NEOMATTLAC

    Very interesting weekend. I learned to swing dance, had some great burgers, ran my first 5k, and had a very enjoyable weekend with a very enjoyable woman. The date we had planned was cut short because we were running late for the swing dancing, but it was made up by some enjoyable talk and whatnot d... Read more

  • Happy day.

    6/15/2017 10:57:36 PM, by POEDAUGHTER7

    Made it to class AND the gym today. Woot happy day. I had a cold a little while ago, so it was not easy.... Read more

  • Circles, but Not Spirals

    6/14/2017 3:55:23 PM, by NEOMATTLAC

    I keep ending up combining the worst items together to create my own "perfect storm". Stress/anxiety, lack of sleep, a world of temptations, and a busy schedule (which makes me miss workouts) always leads to a bad place for me. All I have to do is fix one, and the others typically follow, unless I... Read more

  • Heat is a Headache

    6/12/2017 7:51:51 PM, by DEMOGORGON92

    Literally. Summer isn't officially here yet, but it's already in full swing in Kentucky--and the heat has given me a headache for the last three days. I sweat and so drink water to replenish what I lost, but it's like I can't keep up. Today has been especially bad because I spent a good six hours sc... Read more

  • 4,000 CALORIES?! and a date.

    6/12/2017 3:20:47 PM, by NEOMATTLAC

    I have a weird personality trait that I had virtually forgotten about. When I receive a particularly large amount of praise, my body rebels by messing me up through self-sabotage. I generally eat between 1600 and 2000 kcal a day. On Saturday, I ate 2000+. It wasn't a big deal. It was probably within... Read more

  • Sugar Tracking?

    6/11/2017 9:05:22 AM, by DEMOGORGON92

    My transfer from MyFitnessPal to SparkPeople was due to a lot of things--the community wasn't as friendly, everyone seemed to be competing with each other, and it just felt corporate, to name a few. For all MFP's shortcomings though, there was one thing it beat SP at in my opinion, and that's sugar ... Read more

  • Fun with filters

    6/10/2017 1:04:13 AM, by POEDAUGHTER7

    Fun with filters: This is the Urban filter on Prisma on a selfie I took last May. People have been pushing me to put some new photos up online, so here ya go.... Read more

  • Items Missed

    6/6/2017 10:00:49 PM, by POEDAUGHTER7

    These are fitness items I missed using when I was sick last week with a long horrible Summer cold. Thank you doctor antibiotics for making me alive again.... Read more

  • It's (Not) a Priority

    6/5/2017 12:42:05 PM, by NEOMATTLAC

    It's definitely getting to that point where I'm having to make decisions based on priority. The current priority list is, unfortunately: Family Social School Food Workout Relaxation Lately, family, social, school, and food have taken the place of workouts over and over. Despite losi...

  • Hi, my name is Kat and I am a food addict.

    6/3/2017 11:06:08 AM, by NEW_ME_IN_2017

    This is a hard blog for me to write, however I know if I write it, it very well may help me in the long haul. I feel as though, when I say that I am addicted to food, people may scoff at me. "How can you be addicted to food? It's not like alcohol or drugs!" They may be right. However, there's a diff... Read more

  • And work it

    6/1/2017 11:11:50 PM, by TEEZIE

    Day two of back on track working out. I walked during lunch today and yesterday. Today I went to the gym. I worked out about an hour. Mini me and I had a blast. Just need to figure out how to track it correctly. 521 I feel good. 386 I got this. 244... Read more

    6/1/2017 12:57:21 AM, by TEEZIE

    Been through alot lately. Was unemployed for a couple months. Finally back employed. Temporary job. But it should last about 18 months. Been too busy to do anything. Just started back walking today. Im going to walk during lunch and then work out a couple days a week. Mini me is going to join... Read more

  • Weekly Update

    5/31/2017 3:49:04 PM, by FUCHSIARASCAL

    Another Tuesday training session has come and gone... so it's time for an update! Last night was a legs/cardio workout, which was good because I had a make-up session on Saturday where we did arms and I was still sore from that! Another battle with the stairmaster, and then we did a lot of work on t... Read more

  • Reflection

    5/31/2017 10:09:19 AM, by NEOMATTLAC

    It's so weird looking back to where I was in August 2016 and comparing to me now. It's actually gotten to the point that I'm referring to the self I was then as "Old me" (and the me I'm working towards as "future me" and current me as "new Matt"). I'm dramatically smaller. I'm happier. I'm not... Read more

  • The Future is Changing

    5/30/2017 12:40:00 PM, by NEOMATTLAC

    I feel like I messed up last week (and every week since March). I realized what my issue is over and over again, but I haven't done anything about it. My immediate goals were crushed and I did well to defeat the sense of self I had. Without the self-hate, I found myself slowing down, because there w... Read more

  • Still working.

    5/30/2017 1:16:23 AM, by POEDAUGHTER7

    I have been on the Alli diet plan non stop since November of this year, and lost 15 pounds. Check in time Tuesday to see if it is still working.... Read more

  • Day 2

    5/29/2017 10:22:41 PM, by MIZJLYNN1973

    This is truly a day to be proud of myself. A small step. But I have successfully completed 2 consecutive days of staying within my calorie range. It's an improvement since last week, as week I tended to have a good day, then bad day, then good day type routine. Which was better than the week before ... Read more

  • How many times???

    5/28/2017 9:51:28 PM, by MIZJLYNN1973

    How many times do I have to start over?!? I am ashamed that yet once again I have found myself at this place. Forced to recognize how I have let myself down. It's frustrating. It's annoying. But most importantly it needs to be my motivation not to return to this place again Many years now, I have ... Read more
