Yesterday was a better day, oddly enough.It's odd because I had to file the papers yesterday to start the divorce proceedings. After 60 days, we'll have a hearing to get the judge's sign off. Since we agree on everything, I hope that it will be ... Read more

Yesterday was a hard day. I woke up and did a little stretching/yoga. I made good food choices. I made myself get up from my computer at work & walk around the back warehouse a bit just to try to build up some energy and take a break. I eve... Read more

This weekend: Food choices - not good, but not terrible. I don't think I racked up a ton of calories, but the carbs? Oy, the carbs get me every time. Saturday - I was up and feeling pretty good that morning. I started my day around 10a... Read more

Last night, I managed to get some cute workout clothes, Zumba class was a blast, I spent time with a great friend, and I got to eat an amazing (but maybe not healthy) chicken parm sandwich and indulge in a chocolate shake that I'm surprised I di... Read more

This weekend I will be working on the divorce paperwork with my husband, and will likely file it early next week. At this point, he is not willing to put in the work to save the marriage and is entirely focused on what he wants, so I'm ready to ... Read more

A pound loss to total 230.6...certainly nothing to sniff at, especially consider the complete lack of exercise the 14th-17th due to that nasty cold. 2.5 inches gone i... Read more

I took a few days off from work this week. Work is getting tough for me. I'm starting to get weary of the repitition of my job and of the long hours sitting at a desk all day. Being the self-proclaimed computer geek that I am, that just feels li... Read more

If Friday the 13th was lucky, I guess Saturday the 14th was not. Was sneezing all day yesterday, but thought it was just allergies. Started feeling stuffy before bed, so I took a Benadryl to help me sleep. That should've nipped any allergie... Read more

Got on the scale this morning & was excited to see a 1.8lb loss. WOOHOO! I slept really well last night, but still dragged on the treadmill this morning. My stomach's been oddly upset today though and my head is stuffed up due to allergies,... Read more

Wednesday, August 11, 2010      1 comments

Thanks to everyone for the advice yesterday. The more I think about it, the more I realize it's not the small weight loss that gets to me. It's the constant fatigue that I hate so much. One of the main reasons I started this change was for ... Read more

OK, I need some advice from my fellow Sparkers. When I first starting changing my diet & exercise on 6/10, I weighed 253 (I'm 5'5") and I was aiming for 1500-1800 calories a day. I probably logged on average 1000-2000 calories a week the fi... Read more

Friday, August 06, 2010      2 comments

So stray doggie is perfectly healthy. He's 1.5-2 years old, mostly hound. The vet said that what likely has happened is that someone got him to train him to be a hunting dog, he didn't take to it, so they let him loose because they didn't want t... Read more
