Itty bitty little bits of motivation
Wednesday, March 08, 2017      3 comments

Yesterday I thought seriously about giving up, and giving in to all the stress and anxiety in my life at the moment. Everything seems so precarious that the commitment I need to have to losing weight and walking isn't as strong as it should b... Read more
I scrapped my planned dinner
Tuesday, March 07, 2017      5 comments

I wanted crackers and ice cream, instead of the ground turkey and cabbage meal I planned for. I'm glad to report that I didn't eat the ice cream and crackers. I didn't eat the turkey and cabbage, either. I ate ten crunchy, juicy, peppery radis... Read more
Dizzy and lethargic, sweaty and strange

That's me today. I couldn't force myself to eat until noon, and even then I wasn't hungry. I'm pretty sure I'm getting sick.... Read more
What was that????

Last night, when I wasn't even hungry or really craving sugar, I ended up eating chips, bread, cookies and pudding I hadn't planned on eating. I just got up and grabbed some potato chips, which I don't even like that much, and made myself tea... Read more
Coffee is today's life raft

I woke up with a headache and still mad at the husband from a fight last night, which turned out to be a misunderstanding. We need to work on communicating! I stepped on the scale even though I weighed yesterday because I want Saturday to be ... Read more
Stepped on the scale this morning

I was pleased to see that I'm only a pound over what I was before I took a break. Right now it seems it's easier not to gain than it is to lose. I'll add exercise sometime soon, that should help with the losing. I woke up hungry, though. Ye... Read more
It's a good thing that I planned today's meals yesterday

I'm off to better times and big daydreams in my head today. In my dreams last night I was traveling, again, and today the minutiae of everyday life is beyond me. Maybe tomorrow I can do the "here and now" thing. Today my mind is everywhere ... Read more
Two Days Down
Wednesday, March 01, 2017      1 comments

So I've successfully stuck to my plan for two days, hurray for me! My allergies are better today, who knows why, and I'm glad about that. I would have taken a walk if I had the gas money to go to the park, but I don't so that will have to wai... Read more
Allergy Head
Tuesday, February 28, 2017      3 comments

I woke up feeling like my head was a brick and even coffee couldn't totally chase the tiredness away. The only upside is that my brain feels swathed in anti-overthinking cotton blankets. Woot. What to write about if I'm not over thinking? ... Read more
I got through the first day back
Monday, February 27, 2017      5 comments

I have greens on the stove top and low fat cornbread in the oven, and for the rest of the day I've stuck to my eating plan. I didn't quite get any exercise in, but I can add that slowly. The day has had its challenges, like when my husband ... Read more
Back for Good
Monday, February 27, 2017      6 comments

Even if I'm crawling instead of sprinting here I am, making my best effort to stay healthy. It's better than nothing, better than what I usually do. Better is the objective, here. Do better today than yesterday. I know I need to change. ... Read more
Planning on coming back tomorrow

I'm gathering all my motivational tools and being honest with myself about what I want. That would be 1. I want to surprise my family when I go home for Easter. 2. Since I can't look like I did when I was twenty, I can at least be strong and... Read more
Feeling Unsettled
Tuesday, February 21, 2017      2 comments

Yesterday I took a walk with my husband, who is still unemployed, and it was nice and we were going to do it again today, but I'm having intestinal trouble again. I had other plans for today but it looks like they're a no go, too. Everything... Read more
We'll see how this goes

I'm hoping to get to walk today but we're supposed to have thunderstorms coming up, so I'm not sure if it will happen. I'm not certain if it was the way I was eating or stress that's hurt my digestive system, but I haven't felt well for close ... Read more
My Stomach is a Wreck
Wednesday, February 15, 2017      4 comments

I'm extending my break because between super stress and eating indiscriminately, my stomach is suffering. I had lemon juice and honey in water for breakfast, which is light but not exactly the ultimate in nutrition. Chicken soup for lunch, I ... Read more
