  • So tired

    7/19/2015 10:20:16 AM, by SANANDDJMAMA

    Worked a full day yesterday and going again today. I didn't sleep well at all. I woke up every two hours on the dot. One of the times I woke up I felt really hungry. That's kinda weird to me. But I didn't go pilferage through my fridge or pantry. Yay me. I just took some drinks from water bottle and... Read more

  • Ugh....

    7/17/2015 7:38:08 PM, by SANANDDJMAMA

    Today started out good, but now I'm just down. When my hubby gets mad it stresses me out to the max. I can't handle it mentally and I lose all motivation. It makes me feel small and unwanted. He isn't even saying anything mean,it's just his tone. I've spent so long being intimidated that even the sl... Read more

    Hey Sparkies, Today is day 20 of my staying within my calorie range streak. 244 My stair-challenge has been put on pause though because it was making my legs WAYYYYY too sore.

    I posted my blog entry on my status. I guess I got confused.I'm not really used to posting blogs and stuff. But I'm finding that I enjoy writing one. Maybe it's because in a way it's just getting rid of everything I'd like to say aloud. Like I said in the status I'm timid and shy. But I'm trying to ... Read more

    So yesterday started out bad, but it turned around for the better. Had a small meltdown from being overwhelmed and worried.To say the least it was in front of my boss.

  • New food for July

    7/13/2015 6:03:55 PM, by WALNUTT1961

    The new food I tried for this month is Lemon Drop melon. It looks like a small cantaloupe with a yellow peel and green lines on it. It is very juicy and has smaller seeds in the middle similar to the cantaloupe. It is a little tart and sweet. I like cantaloupe better. I ate a couple of cubes an... Read more
