  • calories suck

    1/24/2015 9:46:33 PM, by TIME_FOR_CHANGE

    I can't understand it. I don't!! If I'm to have 1,575 calories per day, and I work out for 4-5 days a week, for at least an hour, how can I get my use of calories higher than what I take in. I don't have more than about an hour a day to exercise? I'm so annoyed!! ... Read more

  • Blew it:-(

    1/23/2015 11:16:48 PM, by TIME_FOR_CHANGE

    Today, I fell into an old, bad habit. I got bored and found myself eating away on crackers and cashews. Before I knew it, I had went 300+ calories over my intake for the day. I really got mad at myself for it. I know that it happens and I'm only 20 days into starting my journey over again. It... Read more

  • I love it

    1/22/2015 7:09:56 PM, by TIME_FOR_CHANGE

    Yes, I've had a few bad days the past several weeks here at home but I have not been near as stressed. I can really walk or ride the stress away daily. My temper is lower and it takes more effort for me to get mad. I have to say I love it!!! ... Read more

  • Venting - it's been a challenging day

    1/21/2015 7:17:36 PM, by TIME_FOR_CHANGE

    Yep, that's right.  It's always welcome.  Now that doesn't mean it's always taken. Sometimes, though, it's worth really considering.  Right now, we are having or maybe, I'm having trouble with dealing with a 21  year old.  I expect a certain level from all the kids and Tyler just doesn't car...

  • I feel so bad for the little boys

    1/19/2015 6:01:29 PM, by TIME_FOR_CHANGE

    How many of you have heard about the five year old and the birthday party he didn't attend in the UK? The situation is wrong all the way around and what both mums forget is that the boys are 5!!! They change their minds faster than we blink our eyes. Omg!!! I feel sorry for the one who had the bir... Read more

  • pessimistic vs optimistic: which are you!

    1/15/2015 8:07:26 PM, by TIME_FOR_CHANGE

    Life is hard; karma likes to slap us around - alot sometimes.  Society, in part, plays a huge roll in this and our mental mindset.  I have to fight, daily, with that black, green eyed, monster.  However, I'm learning to cope with it better every day.  I'm saying this because everyday, life is...

  • Back again

    1/11/2015 2:07:42 PM, by HILLAROO07

    It has been a long time since I have been on here. I feel off the wagon of course. I also recently got engaged! After an upset yesterday and a good hard look at myself I think its time for the change i started on months back. I am nervous starting all of this but I am not sure why. I know its kind o...

  • my week in review

    1/10/2015 9:30:00 AM, by TIME_FOR_CHANGE

    The start of my week was good. I started the gym, started changing my view on food and started trying to change my thinking habits. I was on a right track. But... About mid week, some things in my house started to go bad, then to worse. Vehicles started breaking down, kids started going wild,... Read more

  • Gym: day 4

    1/8/2015 11:25:57 PM, by TIME_FOR_CHANGE

    Today was day 4. I am actually starting to slowly get use to it. I am using the treadmill this week and have been trying to up my distance and time on it every time I'm there. Today I feel like I did good. I walked for 60 mins and a distance of over 2 miles. I know that isn't alot and tomorr... Read more

  • I'm slowly getting use to the gym

    1/7/2015 9:10:37 PM, by TIME_FOR_CHANGE

    I just knew I'd be laid up in bed and not be able to move by today, day 3. Actually, if I didn't have weak ankles, I'd ask be in there walking. Let's just say, I'm doing okay. I walked for 46 mins today. I didn't push with all the incline work, as my ankle has been hurting all day. I just kind... Read more

  • bad habits driving me crazy

    1/7/2015 4:49:00 PM, by TIME_FOR_CHANGE

    So far today has been a struggle. It's so cold that I can't do anything outside and that makes me sit alot. I can't clean anything else. Boredom is kicking in and that makes me want to eat. I have stayed away from junk food, eating things like apples, oranges and bananas, drinking some water and j... Read more

  • day 3 start

    1/7/2015 11:13:28 AM, by TIME_FOR_CHANGE

    Today, I'm a little sore. My legs don't feel like weights but I'm sure they will tonight after the 3rd day of the gym. So far, I am changing my diet around, trying to exercise and around the same time each night, lay off the junk food and soda, slow down on the smoking and not injure my back any ... Read more

  • OK, so I went back

    1/6/2015 10:28:44 PM, by TIME_FOR_CHANGE

    Today was day two at the gym and I walked for 41 mins. I don't think that is too bad. We went later so I wouldn't have a problem with all the people. I was more relaxed and comfortable this time. It's a 24 hour gym Monday- Friday. I know that really you need to exercise around the same time ev... Read more

  • A tad bit better

    1/6/2015 8:30:35 PM, by TIME_FOR_CHANGE

    So today, I've eaten a little better. I turned to apples instead of chips. I really haven't eaten much either as i haven't been that hungry. I did have a burger at lunch but knew i would be walking and don't other activities today. I've slacked off the soda some, having only 4 today. Normal for... Read more

    1/5/2015 11:46:49 PM, by TIME_FOR_CHANGE

    OK, I'm trying to slow down lol. Today, we started back to the gym. That was OK but on the wild hair of hairs, I've decided to try and quit smoking on top of that. But ideal hands can sometimes be a bad thing... As my hands tend to wonder. They wonder to the chips, the crackers, the cheese, the c... Read more

  • first day at gym

    1/5/2015 8:06:00 PM, by TIME_FOR_CHANGE

    Since I can't do alot, I stuck with the treadmill. I don't like being around people. It was packed when I got there. I had to wait for the treadmill. I only did 30 mins roughly but I guess that's better than nothing. Maybe I'll have the will to stay at the gym. It's too cold to be outside walk... Read more

  • Inner Peace

    1/4/2015 7:53:50 PM, by BUBBLEGUM_FAIRY

    I have started reading a great book called "The Inner Peace Diet." The beliefs behind it are that for 7 weeks you focus on certain foods and it helps to balance all of your chakras. Red foods for first week, then orange, and so on that correspond with each one, then at the end a rainbow combination ... Read more

  • Glad the holidays are OVER!!!

    1/2/2015 9:46:12 PM, by TIME_FOR_CHANGE

    I blew my diet and exercise over the holidays. I gained who really knows how much and then my doctor changed my meds again. I decided to look at the scale today and I am back down to 204.4. That's better than 209 the other day. Starting Monday, we will be going to the gym. I know that will h... Read more

    1/1/2015 7:05:47 AM, by FRESH_START10

    Alright. It's January first. Usually one of my favorite days of the year. Why? Because it's that magical day where all your plans and schemes can finally take off. Second to the first of the year is every Monday, where all your goals can start over. You know what I mean, right? "I'll start work... Read more

    12/28/2014 9:17:41 AM, by TIME_FOR_CHANGE

    I gained 4 pounds:-( not what I had in mind. Being over weight sucks as it is but me and the holidays, well that is a defeat before it starts. The smells, the flavors, the socializing, the family, the friends, the sights and sounds of it all makes me want to sample and taste and eat everything.... Read more
