  • Yesterday was good after all.

    4/27/2017 7:51:32 AM, by SANDY1969

    Yesterday didn't defeat me. I made smoothies for supper. I had half a sub from subway for lunch (unsweet tea and 2 cookies...I know but I can't pass them up) so I was trying to even things out. I did not exercise yesterday but still managed to get in over 12,000 steps YAY! Today, up earl... Read more

    I am trying to decide what to have for supper. I thought on my way home I'd make a smoothie out of a protein drink, ice and frozen fruit, sit on the deck and relax. Right now I am starving. lol Hubby's been mowing the grass, think he's done. Let's see what happens.... Read more

    So, since my last blog, I am continuing to follow the gluten free/ soy free/ anti-inflammatory kind of diet lifestyle. There are so many great options now a days!!!

  • Lost sight of what I want most, for what I wanted right now.

    4/23/2017 7:45:57 AM, by SANDY1969

    So yesterday was not the greatest. Was not speaking to hubby for the past few days and finally just broke down and said what the heck. Sausage and eggs for breakfast, 2 pieces of wheat bread. Wendy's for late lunch after shopping 4 hours (retail therapy). I had Dr. Pepper. Lots of it. ... Read more

    Weigh in today after exercise of 339, so thats a little up (after Easter) but a 10 pound loss for the month (past 31 days).

    4/14/2017 7:09:19 PM, by SANDY1969

I WALK on my 2 15 minute breaks. I do feel better. Ive made other changes, but tonight it's pizza. Instead of m... Read more

    So, I've been at this for like 7 years. On spark and trying to lose weight. Back in 2010 I finally came out of my stupor and looked at myself and thought...man I want more from my life. I have had pretty good success (a one time weight loss of up to 125 pounds) But this past year I have had littl... Read more

  • Today I feel low

    4/7/2017 7:18:31 AM, by SANDY1969

    I got the BLAHs. Ive been sick the last few days but I've tried to push through, now I think I just need to re-energize. I also forgot to take my meds yesterday which includes vit B, so that's dragging me down I think. Got to take the meds, get some vitamins in me, make great food cho... Read more

    Setting a new starting point tomorrow. Going to reset my tracker with my current weight as of tomorrow (my usually weekly weigh-in day) and take measurements (which I haven't done in quite awhile). Also, I need to plan out an exercise schedule, making sure to include both cardio AND strength/resista... Read more

  • Lipedema... who knew??? **Extremely important information to share**

    3/30/2017 4:02:29 PM, by JEAN111766

    I have learned some exceptionally important information about myself and have also learned that there are over 11 million women in the US alone who have the same issues and have most likely not been diagnosed yet. In Oct 2016, I went to my primary care MD and expressed complete and total frustrati... Read more
