    I feel like this is one of those chances to push myself and see where I go.

  • Day 05 - Urgent Care

    9/12/2014 11:30:10 PM, by PRETTYMISSTRISH

    I had to go to urgent care today as per my girlfriend and friend told me I had to. My girlfriend practically dragged me but I am glad she did. I apparently have a very bad sinus infection and protein in my urine so I have to cut back on my protein for a while. I think it is because I ha e no gallbla... Read more

    Today went a whole lot better than yesterday. Trying to beat off the bouts of depression is hard, but I'll push through. Thank you everyone who gave me encouraging words and advice, I appreciate it! I really do take them to heart and try them if I feel they will help me! I am really proud of m... Read more

    Welp....I have no more excuses. I can't exercise because work is getting in the way. Nope...sorry...you're on sabbatical. Get up off your butt. I can't eat right because my schedule is all messed up. Nope....sorry....you're on sabbatical. Get a routine going, buy healthy whole foods ... Read more

  • Ugh, Tired

    9/12/2014 3:45:57 PM, by DESIROCKS

    I am so tired today and I am not able to take a nap right now. And I haven't been swimming in days. Maybe I can do some house cleaning or take the girls out into the pool. Last night I was having such bad carb cravings-I was just hungry all the time! It isn't pms, either. I don't know if it's becaus... Read more

    9/12/2014 2:33:20 PM, by SWEET_CAROLYN

    No, I haven't changed my name. I'm just going to be really, brutally honest. I fell off the wagon. I bumped up to 200 pounds. Sure, I kept running, but running was sometimes a nightmare, what with the knee. (People are not lying when they say that running is easier when you are lighter-weight!)... Read more

  • Starting Strong

    9/12/2014 1:05:05 PM, by YOUNGKY3092

    Today is my second day and I'm trying to start strong with small goals. My goal this week is to do the 7-day bootcamp and not miss a day. This will be difficult since I live a busy life, but I know I can do it. Usually I make it about 5 days into any fitness program and start to lose momentum. I get... Read more

  • Day 04 - No appetite

    9/12/2014 1:16:33 AM, by PRETTYMISSTRISH

    Still sick. It seems like when I get sick, I get sick for longer than average. I really do hope it goes away soon. Have to work early and not looking forward to it but I can't call in. Didny have much of an appetite today at all either. All I wanted was crackers or popcorn. Not bad for me, but... Read more

  • Work in Progress - Day 004

    9/12/2014 12:24:05 AM, by KITTY-KIM

    Feel kind of off today, not sick; just emotionally drained. I know it isn't the diet because I've been battling this drain for the last few months now. Can't say I really ever talked about it much to anyone. I'm usually the go to person when someone needs to rant. I guess I just feel they already ha... Read more

    Hello, Today I am feeling very motivated so I just updated my special goals. I just put 3 new ones that I think I can do at least once every week. Then I will try to increase the times per week but to start I want to try them out. ~I want to walk my dogs down to the city park once a week. I t... Read more

  • Feeling Gross

    9/11/2014 6:26:47 AM, by DESIROCKS

    Okay, so now I've lost enough fat that I have new fat rolls in areas that had smoothed out. I have skin I can pinch and fold over on itself. Everything is jiggly. Jiggly. Jiggly. I have weird sunken spots in my arms and, unfortunately, my chest got smaller so now my body looks disproportionate unt... Read more

    I was going to do this blog earlier today but got busy. And once I got home I just had no energy. I fixed dinner and did the dishes and then just set in kind of a daze. Not sure what's going on. Anyway it's been a strange day. No workout today (I did some Photoshop stuff for a friend at lunch) ... Read more

    Once again didn't work out. It's not that I didn't want to... I had to clean around the treadmill. Will have to see if the cord will reach the outlet tomorrow. I'd have gone for a walk, but I'm not allowed to alone and no one can walk with me right now. Perhaps tomorrow, if not, I'll use the treadmi... Read more

    9/11/2014 12:09:28 AM, by PRETTYMISSTRISH

    Felt like a failure today. Went on a liquid diet but at the end of day three, I felt starving sensations. I know I am not a failure, but felt like one briefly. My friend, Kitty-Kim on SP, practically smacked me back into reality and told me I wasn't a failure and that the diet wasn't for everyone. I... Read more
