Back to sparking today. Took some time to get my head together. Had way to many of those moments this last year. Now I am ready to move forward!

Hi ladies!
Hope everyone is doing well, I finally am starting to feel like the path is clearing again. Hit a rut there for a month or two. BUT, with inspiration of this beautiful weather we've been having, I can't help but want to buy myself shorts for my birthday next month :) Soooo... since I've been good with not drinking, and am starting to get stress under control, I think it may be in the works.
Plus, all the yard work we have lined up, I'll be getting lots of exercise :)

Happy Friday!

Just because you close your eyes, doesn't mean the world disappeares.

I guess it's different where I live. We live in a very woodsy area. The rivers are clean, and natural. Eating trout from around here would be the freshest, cleanest, you could eat. If I had to live off the land, I'd be so buff and lean haha. Sushi, is very good. If you ever have a chance to go to a sushi bar check it's ratings first. Then start with a California roll, next, get something that has salmon, cream cheese, and has been wrapped in tempura. This way, the salmon is partially cook inside when they bake or fry the tempura. It's amazing.

the first and only time i had catfish, i caught it, 10 pounder, i usually am a catch and release fisherwoman, but i was proud. the thing had whole crawdads still alive in it's belly! then skinning it was a challenge, and my husband made battered and fried, i'm not a fan of this fish... icky. haha. it's funny, i prefer sushi over cooked fish. less fishy tasting, and doesn't smell. tehe!

February is almost here, yikes... I feel like we literally just finished Christmas. Well, Valentines Day isn't a huge hit in our house. Mainly cause my husband and I both lost our Grandparents on that day. :(
But, we still try to cook a nice dinner, and rent a movie.
I would kinda like to say I want to lose 5 pounds before then, which is two weeks away. We'll see.
Hope everyone is doing well! If you are apart of the 10 pounds to Summer Challenge, please check in with any progresses or concerns!

I have had a pretty good weekend. Staying busy working out and getting more things organized. It has been so nice to take care of me. It is supposed to get really cold here tonight. We need the weather and hopefully some rain. Did have quite a suprise this week. A old friend from 24 years ago contacted me. We were best friends and lost touch all those many years ago. My how time flies.

I think this evening is a movie marathon. I think scary is on the menu. Now to find the right ones.

Hey girls... Just popping to see what everyone is up to...
I can't lie, I have lost about 13 pounds in the last two months, this last month though the weightloss is mostly just from diet change. I could be exercising more, but working so many 16 hour days isn't allowing me to. But, before I gained all this weight, I did moderate exercise weekly, I would walk a few times a week, go on hikes, go dancing. I ate alot healthier though too. So I by changing my eating habits back to what they use to be, the weight is coming off alot quicker than I thought it would. I eat more fresh (always fruits and veggies) and I've been eating a ton of greek yogurt! The only part of the day I actually eat meat, is at night for dinner. The rest of my protein in the day is usually a soy type. And I do this because of stomach issues :( ( I was a vegetarian for 9 years, was healthier then too) But I started thinking that, with all the processed foods people make, pastas, canned stuff, frozen dinners, that stuff has alot of additives that I'm sure build up in our stomachs and fat cells. Ew!
Anyway, I heard or read somewhere that weightloss is mostly 70% healthy diet and 30% exercise.... unless you are a body builder or something. But, as long as I'm eating healthy, happy, the pounds are coming off I'm doing just grand :)

Have a good Saturday all!

I have heard something like that but haven't been clear on the complete the concoction or what exactly it does. Just cold here. I got awesome news. Lost 10.8 pounds. 11.8 for the year so far! Woot. I am excited. I am finally moving forward and am so relived to actually see some of it come off. It has been a long while since I lost instead of gained. This is what I needed to keep going!

My co-worker told me to start drinking a apple cider vinger drink 3 times a day . I started to drink it a month ago and it does seem to be helping me wake up and keep me going. Has anybody else tried it?

we got that rain,sleet and snow last night...winter is back after that 60 degrees over weekend.

Hey Connie! It's so good to 'see' you! Busy girl! I too am peeking in and struggling to get back to consistancy! Fighting off a cold for the past 2 1/2 weeks doesn't help...i can't hear out of my left ear but I can breath and I don't want to go to the docs in fear that i will pick up the nastiness that everyone else has going on! i keep taking the mucinex and a decongestant and figure i should be good as new come Spring emoticon

How's your daughter? How is she enjoying the non Southern weather?

Hope everyone is enjoying hump day! We didn't get the snow and sleet they were calling for..just cold rain. emoticon emoticon

Hey everyone, I'm peeking in to say emoticon

I'm back at it. Slowly getting back on track. I made the mistake of dancing like I didn't miss a whole month of Zumba classes when I went to Sat.'s class. Oh boy was that a mistake! I hurt from the top of my head all the way down to the tip of my toes! My calves hurt the most of all. Soooo I made sure to pace myself during tonights class emoticon

I started back to tracking my food today. I only went over my cals a little bit,. I'm going to have to hit my water better. I was a little short on that.

My Vitamix blender came in the mail today!!! I'm so excited. I can't wait to read up on it, watch the dvd then get to making some magic with it. Wish me luck!!!

I hope everyone is well!! I'll check in again later gators emoticon

I did my 2nd day of Yoga Meltdown on wednesday and today I don't feel half as sore. I can't wait until I can do all the rolling side planks along with them. Maybe even some Chatarunga push ups.

When I woke up today just about everything hurt from my Jillian workout. The good news is all the places I hurt most are the ones I most desire to sculpt and muscle up so they will look good when I drop the pounds. My quads, core, and chest/shoulders are the worst, but it makes me happy it means it is working, and it is not the "oh my god I cant even move" hurt.

Stay positive ladies! Nothing get's handed to us easily... I'd rather have something I worked for anyway. You are all doing great! Keep up the good work and love yourself today! I'm about to go hope on the treadmill... Have a great day!

Ember I am sorry you had a crappy day, but glad you didn't give in to food urges.

I got my butt kicked by Jillian Michaels for the first time today. I got her yoga meltdown dvd at a new years sale. I am doing this video on my strength training days this week, and walking on the treadmill for my cardio on the other 4 days. I was totally sweat drippy by the end of the workout today and I couldn't do all of the moves, a couple I had to modify beyond the beginner or I couldn't do all of the reps but I did try to do everything. I think this will strenghten my wrists also because of all the planks and rolling back and forth on the hands into different poses. We will see how sore I am when I wake up tomorrow, I may be glad all I have to do is walk a mile and half on the treadmill.

Been and exhausting day. Work was decent but major drama at the house. I finally gave in and just had one of those soul racking sobs. I feel better but exhausted. I didn't go running to food but I was so tempted. I did eat a bit too much baked fish but was still under my limit. I think I am headed to bed. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day.

Hi Ladies I'm new here on this team and have been reading some of your comments here on General discussion. ...Life is sooo stressful, But I know each and everyone of you will get through what ever stressful situation that you are going through. It's tough BUT with your friends here you can do it. I always think positive and keep a smile on my face. Have too! Life is sooo short and some times it's not worth giving up your time to worry about what happened yesterday ....you can't change it! Move on with a positive attitude . I'm a true believer in that things happen for a reason Bad or good.... Believe me I have been there!

I hope each and every one of you have a wonderful day!

Hey y'all, I'm peeking in. I will be back into the full swing of things shortly.
I posted a pity party blog to try and get some of it out so I'll feel better and thought I'd peek in and say hey! Gosh, sorry about the ended relationship :( That is tough and especially so when it is around the holidays.
Glad to see some friends still around emoticon I like this group and hope we are able to keep it rolling. I'm sure going to need the support.
Well I have one daughter married off and on her way to Washington State and my other daughter is now engaged and looking @ an April 2014 wedding although her fiance is looking to join the Air Force soon so we'll see about that wedding date...I've already been through this "oh crap we need to hurry up and get married" thing already and it about killed me. We are def getting a wedding planner for this next one! For sure!!!
Alright girlies...hang in there and I'll be back after the new year!
emoticon emoticon I hope everyone has a happy, healthy and blessed 2013!!!!

The "good" thing is because we were seeing so little of each other anymore most of the day to day hasn't changed. I catch myself thinking "I should text him and ask about....nevermind". We went from seeing each other very regularly to maybe every couple weeks to maybe once a month, and in the last 6 months I think we saw each other 3 times, and two were us going to get tattoos worked on. The other major suck is I have no coworkers to commiserate with, since I'm now the only one not in a relationship (married or on the verge in all their cases also), and one of only 2 people without kids.

I always feel crappy when I skip workouts, but for whatever reason before your workout is not the time you remember how it boosts your mood and energy. So far staying on track is workout out though, and I got myself a FitBit to play with for christmas. I was curious about the sleep function because I am a chronic tosser and turner. So far after one night Fitbit says I woke up and rolled around 13 times. Monitoring how long I am actually asleep vs how long I think I slept is helpful because my body is very particular about how much sleep I get, and while I can easily do 9 or 10 hours a night I start to suffer long term and tend to want to "just keep sleeping" when I allow myself to do that. When I loose 15 pounds or my birthday (right now they are the same on my goal sheet) I am going to get the wireless scale that goes with Fitbit because I am curious about the other calculations it claims it can do.

Relationships ending can always be tough, and throwing holiday stress into the mix isn't what I call 'ideal' for the situation. I think with your willpower, if you can take your sadness and put it towards making yourself healthier with exercise and eating healthy, you'd feel ten times better. Easier said than done, I know, I should take my own advice at times. But all those moments I felt the world was crashing down on me, and I layed in bed crying, ordered pizza, went out and had too many drinks, I wish I had gotten up and went to the gym, called a friend and took a walk in the park... exercise brings out the bodies natural seratonin, that's why we feel so nice after excercising. Do what you can, and know you can always do more than what you think. You will be fantastic, this isn't a permanent 'single' situation. Someone will pick you up when the time is right and should feel honored to have you . :) Stay strong girl!

Here I was all set to get back on track and my 5 year relationship ended *the weekend before christmas thanks*. We love each other but we were not able to be together very much and there is a lot of major life stuff between us, so we finally agreed that it has gotten to hard to hold on, and half assing our relationship hurts more than it helps. Now I'm in that wicked state of wanting to wallow in the blah and be sad about this, but also it has been headed this way for so long I am dealing a lot better than I thought I would be. And then there is that little part of my brain screaming "zomg I can't be single, I'm too fat to go out and do single stuff....and jeez dating...."

So this could either turn me into a mess or be fab motivation to get back on track and stay that way.

I have decided that I am just not going to worry about the food and holidays. I know I am not to the point in my journey to be able to completely resist so I will just keep plowing thru and try not to do too much damage. Heck in the big picture it is one day. That is what I am allowing myself. One day.

Glad to see folks are on here again.

Hello ladies! I hope everyone is making through this holiday season. Blah! I'm not a huge fan of the holidays... due to stress, shopping with millions of crabby people, holiday food, etc, etc....
Since it's been cold out, I've taken a love for my treadmill again. It's not so bad if I crack up some music and just go for it... but again, on days we have sunshine, like today, I'm going to bundle up and at least try to go for a 10 minute walk outside with the pups. We all need fresh air.
As for eating food on Christmas... yikes. My family is baking a ham, mash potatoes, salad, pie.... I love it all... except the pie. I think this year I may skip the potatoes, which saddens me. Mom just doesn't make them healthy like I do... a whole stick of butter in them! Yikes!!! I think I'll be alright though, it's all about portion control this season with these sorts of foods.
Hope all is well... Happy Holidays!

Not big on the juicing thing either. Smoothies - now your talking. Wow a wedding. She will so want to remember having a wedding. I think you are on the right track with her. LOL It is definitely a blessing to have someone you really like come into the family. That is wonderful.

I have been out lately. I had really contemplated on giving up. I have had two years where I have not made it very far. I just have not had the will power strong enough to overcome the obstacles that are in my way. I have finally reached a point where I have to take care of myself and I am enjoying that feeling. So I am now taking the step. I have to want this bad enough. I think I do now. So I have done well on my food and water today and that is the first step. I really fear I am coming down with a sinus infection but am determined to not let it put me on the sideline. I am determined. I want to live and be happy. I have been miserable for far too long.

I had a great exercise week and have begun this week with a 90 min. Zumba class with a Halloween party after. It was alot of fun!!
I bought a nutriblast over the weekend and tried it out for the first time today! I made myself a spinach, banana, blackberry, protein smoothie. It was pretty good. My friend at work introduced me to smoothies. She also let me try juiceing. Let me just say YUCK!! I do not like juicing. So super gross!! Then all the pulp, fiber, etc... gets taken out so that just seems like a waste. My friend has mack daddy juicer too! That thing was impressive. I found out when I went to buy the nutriblast that juicing and smoothies are the IN thing right now. Guess I'm flying with the cool kids on this one. LOL
Kalyn is back from Texas. Bobby graduated Air Force basic training over the weekend!! He'll be on his way to Virginia in the morning where he will go to school for five weeks. Thank goodness he'll be closer. That way they can sneak in a visit or two.
Ughhhh now Kalyn is not sure what her wedding plans are going to be. Now she's talking about just going to the courthouse and get married when Bobby comes home for a visit then have the reception in March. I'm really working on her on that one. Most people who do that never get around to having the reception. I am standing firm on the fact that no matter what she does she will wear her wedding dress that has already been bought and she will have the flower girl and maid of honor standing beside her since they already have their dresses. She says things are just so complicated. (whatever!) So looks like my little butterbean may be a married woman by the end of the year and leaving the nest with her new hubby. I am so happy she picked someone who we like and that fits into our family nicely!!!
Well that's all I have for now. Hope everyone is having a beautiful fall!!! It is sure beautiful here!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I'm always glad it's the weekend! although mine started off rough but it ended nicely yesterday :) And I am just seeing your post today. I've been under the weather and haven't done any exercising last week :(
My computer still sucks! I really need to put it in the shop. Well, I will get around to it one day.
So excited!!! It's graduation week for Bobby!! We put Kalyn on the plane on Wed. Well actually I'll drop her off at my sister's job. She's going with her. Will find out where his school will be this week. I sure hope it's closer than Texas.
Well, I'm going to call it a night. I made it to 2 Zumba classes and I am exhausted!!!
C-ya later!!! :)

Yeouch. A nape piercing does not sound so fun. Nope I haven't posted a pic yet. It is a very beginning thing. I want a full shoulder piece and got myself a teaser so that I am only allowed to add to it as I lose weight. Unless I want to roam around with a random purple heart on the front of my shoulder I better get my rear moving. I am thinking either something aquatic or very flowery. Not sure as of yet. The heart will blend in to either one.

Today I start my exercising. Just beginning slowly. It is so frustrating starting over.

Well I've posted two responses and my computer has deleted both times! I have a virus or two. I guess I'll have to put it in the shop. Ok, this will be my last attempt....
Did you put a pic up of your new ink? My daughter is saving $$ for her next tat. She wants a half sleeve so she'll be saving for a while! lol. She just showed me her new piercing, it's a nape piercing. When I saw it, it made my butt skin crawl (lol, I know TMI! But it really did crawl) I am not a huge fan of piercings b/c I am squeemish! yikes! I've gotten used to it, it's growing on me.
I love this part of the calendar!!! I love Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas & New Years Eve!!! Fun, Fun, Fun!!!
He doesn't know where he will be stationed yet. He will probably find out when he graduates tec school. I sure hope he goes to school some place closer than Texas!
OK, I'm hoping this will post....if it doesn't well the hell with it, I give up!!

I have been so spotty gettting on here this last couple of months. It sucks. I hate falling off the wagon. I have done well on getting my food back on track but no exercise this week. I am starting back next week. I let the stress monsters get me down. No more. Wow it sounds like you have been busy. You will get back on track soon. I am so excited that it is October. One of my favorite months. Love the Halloween and scary stuff.

Got some fresh ink in Galveston. Just a little purple heart over a scar but I am going to get it woven in to a shoulder piece. Just got to figure out all the things I want it to have. Where is your daughters fiance going to be stationed or does he know yet?

WooHoo!!!!! I'm not alone emoticon bahahaha!! Well, a lot of us are on vacation. Figures, when I get back everyone takes a break. LMAO!!! That's ok though since I am very spotty about when I'm here.
I've been bad this week! No exercise for me. Ughhhhh! I'll get back to it again soon. Been ultra busy w/work, planning my daughter's trip to see her fiance in Texas @ his basic training graduation (so wish I could go too, insert sad face here) We are missing some Bobby! lol So very proud of him. He has two weeks until graduation. Trying to get caught up on my coupons and then trying to get back on track and fit in Zumba.
How was your camping trip? Loved the pics on fb!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend. I'm not working the spark very well this weekend but will get back to it on Monday. Last week was not good, exercise wise. I didn't make it to one class. emoticon
On a good note, my daughter got her tattoo today!! Went to our main man Porkchop and he did an awesome job! We love it! She insisted on putting it on her ribs and my lil puss did great! She's all grown up now, she sat like a pro. Such an improvement from when we took her to get her 1st tattoo, she had to keep stopping for breaks. Had to have a fan, etc... lol And when I say she is a puss, I really mean her pain threshold is like a 0.5 on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being able to handle a good deal of pain. We were so proud of her! Now for the fun time, the healing. Ughhh I hate the part when the itching begins.
Alrighty, I hope someone pops in here soon, I'm begining to feel like I have issues cause I'm talking to myself! emoticon C-y'all later!!!
Oh yeah, I posted her new ink, go check it out!

I hope everyone is doing well!

My daughter is getting some new ink on Saturday for her birthday (which is today, she turned 22!) I have to say I am excited for her and I'm a tad bit jealous emoticon I'm going with her, it's going to be a lot of fun!!! I'll post pics after! This will be her 2nd tat.

I hope everyone had a great holiday! I had a super stressed out one emoticon My husband's grandmother died on Tuesday, she was 91. She fell on Monday and crushed her hip. Her doctors recommended surgery (which she has need several surgeries in the past but the doc's said they would not do surgery as it was too risky) Well she said yes to the surgery (without the surgery her quality of life would have been very bad) She survived the surgery on Monday night but she had complications breathing Tuesday afternoon and passed away. They think a blood clot broke loose. So we drove to NC (4 hrs.) for the funeral on Friday and drove back home to go camping. It was a beautiful service. The church was very pretty too. Camping was kinda hectic as it was a family camping trip. Ken's parents had to cancel as they were going to be in NC. My parents had a drama issue moment, it wasn't pretty folks! That was on Saturday. Sunday went better, we celebrated Shauna's birthday early. Sunday evening was probably the best part of the whole camping trip. Everyone was gone except hubby & me. Slept in Monday then packed up the camper and came home. Work on Tues emoticon Someone please tell me why I married for love and not money?? I hate working! Ughhh! Now I'm looking forward to the weekend for some much needed rest, oh wait, rest after we get Shauna's tattoo! lol

I haven't made it to work out yet this week and I won't get a chance to get back into exercise until Monday. I'll probably gain back all the weight I lost, Sucks!! emoticon Oh well...

Alrighty y'all, I'll peek back in again later! C-ya!!!

Hi everyone! It's been a looooong time since I checked in. I hope everyone is doing well! I am getting back on track and I'm feeling pretty good about it! I hope to keep this up so I can look good in my daughters wedding photo's. She was getting married on Oct. 27, but they may have to move the date back due to scheduling issues. Which can be a good thing for me if I keep losing weight emoticon

Hi all...

So no one has posted on here in a week, hope everyone is out enjoying summer, it's suppose to get really hot out here in Cali this weekend!
Speaking of which, I had a friend tell me yesterday, (one that is really struggling with weightloss), that it is "Too hot to workout". and my first thought was, "wow that is an excuse I've never heard before" sarcastically of course, I'm sure I've made it, sure you have too. But if we never worked out in the summer cause the heat, where would that get us? What a dumb excuse. There is so much you can do in the summer to exercise and beat the heat. Go swimming, get a day pass at a gym if you don't have a membership, hike to the river or lake, there are things to do! Hearing others make excuses makes me rethink when I make them. I don't want to be like that anymore or sound like that to others. No excuses, if you want something bad enough you will give it your all to get it!

Just because you close your eyes, doesn't mean the world disappeares.

Hey ladies! Finally getting back into Sparkpeople after a 3 month hiatus. I stayed within 2-3 pounds of the last weight I had been (which I did consider a small success), but really want to get back to losing. Getting more dilligent about tracking my food and trying to amp up the workouts! My motivation at the moment is that I will be my friend's maid-of-honor at her Vegas wedding at the end of September :) I have been seriously itching for some new ink as well, but since I was just forced to buy a new car, I have a feeling it isn't going to happen for a while! Still trying to talk my sister into getting something with me though. Keep up all the hard work ladies!

Wow thats really sweet on your sons first ink. What does your new piece look like? Congrats.. I am burning for new ink.. sighs.. Post a pic.. I'll live vicariously through you!!

I had a fab weekend.. hated going back to work yesterday. I don't mind working second shift, but it's the weekends and holidays that's rough. Having only 2 weekends off a month with the family is hard..

We are still pushing fast and furious on the yard for my daughters upcoming birthday party. Lots of calorie burning going on. I also started back to the gym this week. Finally. I tell you though my old personal trainer was annoying... grrr... I have lost at least 12lbs since I was at the gym last (thank you low carb living!!)... but he gave me a challenging attitude if you will about why was i back. Umm.. let me in the door and work out.. I don't need attitude. Today I got a head nod from him.. whatever.. I am there to make it happen.. life hiccups way too often for me to get judged by someone else over it.

Anyhoos.. it was a good workout.. I'm happy.. working again tonight and tomorrow night.. off on thurs.. then working the fri/sat/sun.. I hate that stretch.. that's life though..

Miss this group.. it's the only one I really care about.. hehe...
