  • Day 527 - A Wonderful Birthday

    7/28/2015 1:37:54 PM, by KENTUCKYMEL14

    I had a pretty wonderful birthday yesterday. Work was relatively stress free, Red Lobster was delicious, and my date and I saw Pixel at the theater. I highly recommend seeing it to anyone who enjoys 80s arcade games. I did have a small moment of panic yesterday morning. I accidentally left my l... Read more

  • Day 525 - I've Made It 14 Days!

    7/26/2015 9:51:42 PM, by KENTUCKYMEL14

    Today is day 14 of my healthy streak and I feel great! For 2 weeks I've stayed within my ranges and got consistent exercise. Since I've been determined to stay on track for more than just a short while, I've had to find other outlets to vent my frustrations, stresses, boredom, etc. Fortunately, I've... Read more

  • Day 522 - Trying To Plan For My Birthday

    7/23/2015 2:12:37 PM, by KENTUCKYMEL14

    My 24th birthday is Monday and I am really struggling to put a meal plan together. On the one hand, I know that taking a night off from my usual meticulous food planning for a special occasion is not a big deal. On the other hand, I've been doing so well on my streak and I'm feeling so great that I ... Read more

  • Day 521 - Adjusting To New Meds And A Couple NSVs

    7/22/2015 5:15:57 PM, by KENTUCKYMEL14

    On July 1st my doctor put me back on Zoloft for my anxiety. I was on it all through college but I got a lot better and my doctor determined I didn't need it anymore. Unfortunately, it appears I've started to backslide. My anxiety is weird in that I don't have anxiety so much as it's a side effect of... Read more

  • Day 520 - I Think I Think Too Much

    7/21/2015 11:59:27 AM, by KENTUCKYMEL14

    Yesterday was a really good day. I moved into my new house a few weeks ago and it's a little over a mile from Kroger. I had been eyeing a new recipe for a while now but I was short a few ingredients. I decided to walk to Kroger instead of drive to pick up what I needed. Not gonna lie, I actually fee... Read more

  • Day 519 - First 7 Days Finished! Time To Reset.

    7/20/2015 1:35:33 PM, by KENTUCKYMEL14

    I have successfully completed my first 7 days back on track and I feel excellent! The biggest difference I've noticed is that I don't have all the bloated and nauseated feelings I get with eating unhealthy. My body is really good at letting me know when it thinks something I've eating is too unhealt... Read more

  • No case of the Mondays today!

    7/20/2015 9:36:33 AM, by BETHLS79

    I had a horrible week at work last week. I struggled from Tuesday to Friday and it was so bad, I even reverted to my worst habit ever; smoking. I'm done with that today. Thankfully, I had a nice weekend, and I am feeling so good today. Since my blog on Friday, I've been tracking every thing I ... Read more

  • Day 518 - Feeling Blessed

    7/19/2015 12:52:07 PM, by KENTUCKYMEL14

    I decided to read through several of my old blogs. I'm not sure what compelled me to do so but I'm glad I did. There were two things that stuck out to me: 1) Man, I complain a lot! I sound so unhappy all the time even though I'm actually a very happy person. I'm frustrated and annoyed at my weight a... Read more

  • Day 516 - The Storm And The Calm

    7/17/2015 2:18:24 PM, by KENTUCKYMEL14

    I'm filled with several emotions right now. Mainly I'm upset and worried about my work situation. Many people have been fired lately and I feel like I may be next on the list. One of my coworkers even said it sounds like my boss is setting me up to be fired. It's really stressful right now but I've ... Read more

  • Hey, Strangers

    7/17/2015 9:01:40 AM, by BETHLS79

    It's been a while since my last blog, but I'm still doing the workout thing. Several times in the past 8 days I've actually gotten up in the morning to hit the gym before work. That's pretty much unheard of for a person who loves her sleep as much as I do. But I managed to do that last Thursday, ... Read more

  • Day 515 - Dealing With Life's Obstacles

    7/16/2015 10:25:59 PM, by KENTUCKYMEL14

    Today started out as a great day. I saw a loss on the scale, my spirits were up, and I was ready to have a kick butt day. Things started out well and I had no major complaints...until the end. The second half of my work day was rough. Long story short, I have a new boss and we don't see eye to eye o... Read more

  • Day 514 - Just One Week At A Time

    7/15/2015 2:33:19 PM, by KENTUCKYMEL14

    I actually remembered to pack my lunch today. It's such a simple thing to do yet I never seem to actually do it. This means I've spent way too much money going out. Since I've gotten back on track, one thing I plan on doing is paying extra attention to how much I go out. I didn't think it was a prob... Read more

  • Day 513 - How Using The Bathroom Helps Me Lose Weight

    7/14/2015 9:31:33 PM, by KENTUCKYMEL14

    Hello everyone! It appears I've taken another SparkPeople hiatus, gained even more weight, and am now at an all time highest weight. Eek! I weighed in at 177 at my doctor appointment on July 1st and I was officially diagnosed as obese. I can't say I'm surprised but that doesn't mean it didn't hurt a... Read more

  • Would you look at that?

    7/1/2015 1:10:49 PM, by BETHLS79

    I saw it coming, but it's still hard to believe I clocked 1,000 fitness minutes in a month. I'm pretty proud of that. I got awake at 4 o'clock this morning when DH got out of bed and I wasn't able to get back to sleep for some reason. So instead of laying in bed, I got up and went to the gy... Read more
