umpteenth time plus 1
Monday, March 19, 2018      3 comments

Starting again - heavier and older - ack. But still trying :) Funny - I look back at that picture I posted in 2010 when I really wanted to lose weight and wish that I looked like that now. And I remember the girl in college that was too emb... Read more
Umpteenth time
Saturday, June 06, 2015      3 comments

It's been awhile since I've logged, browsed, or in any way been involved with SparkPeople. But here I am again for the umpteenth time - still not where I want to be and actually heavier then when I left. But I am back and determined to keep tryi... Read more
Homemade Mayo
Friday, January 11, 2013      2 comments

Okay so I've been making my own mayonnaise. There are a ton of recipes out there and I love it. When I did Whole30 commercial mayo was off limits because of the soybean oil and other stuff in it. And it's hard for me to go back because of all th... Read more
Well here I go . . . again!
Thursday, January 10, 2013      3 comments

Every year seems to be the same - I lose about 7 pounds by the time June rolls around and by January I've gained it back. And in between I try all kinds of things. Well another year and here I go again. This time I'm committing to Paleo - ... Read more
Need to get back up
Friday, August 31, 2012      5 comments

Okay after 9 weeks resulting in almost no weight loss I fell. I fell off the path I had set for myself. I tried Atkins for 8 weeks and didn't 'cheat' and lost 2 pounds then gained it back in one weekend of bad choices. And even though I said I j... Read more
Another step back
Tuesday, August 21, 2012      5 comments

I feel like every time I blog it's negative. I want to be the positive blogger who can come on here and be like 'yea - lost weight again and did great!' Up until this weekend I had gone 8 wks with no 'mess ups' and didn't have more than a 2 poun... Read more
Time to take a step back and reassess what I'm doing
Friday, August 17, 2012      3 comments

Okay today is the first day of Wk 9 being on Atkins and I'm up .4. So for 8 weeks (with no cheating) I have only lost 2 pounds (and that was wk 1). I told myself I would do Atkins for one year because it often takes time but with this little pro... Read more
Another Weigh Day and a gain
Friday, August 10, 2012      7 comments

Okay so today is weigh day and I'm up .2 pounds from last week. Which wouldn't seem so bad if this wasn't WK7 of me doing Atkins and my total weight loss now is only 2.8 and that from week 1. I am trying not to throw my scale out the window but ... Read more
A new day . . . again
Saturday, August 04, 2012      2 comments

It's been a while since I posted on SparkPeople but I'm back. Since I left I've been up and down in weight and I'm starting at a few pounds heavier then when I left but what can I say - I just have to keep trying. This go round I'm doing low car... Read more
Great 1st Day of 2011
Saturday, January 01, 2011      1 comments

Today was a great start to this new year. We (me, my dh and 2 boys) went to the grocery store in the morning to pick up some needed groceries. We got home, packed a lunch and snacks and set off to Guadalupe River State Park in search for a hike.... Read more
Bird Watching
Friday, December 03, 2010      4 comments

So this has nothing to do with diet or eating (at least not mine) and is just a random blog. This morning when i returned from dropping the boys off at school i noticed a dead squirrel in the street in front of my house and a huge bird on m... Read more

'Eat all of your food . . . you know there are kids out there who are starving.' With this phrase and other similar ones my mom has always hammered the notion into me that to waste food is akin to bashing in the heads of baby seals. I've bl... Read more
Just another rant
Thursday, November 11, 2010      6 comments

So here I am - it's 4:40 and at least an hour ago I maxed out my allowed calories for the day. I am so frustrated beyond belief - why can't I do this? So I'm sitting here thinking about my next step. I even looked up Nutrisystem and then thought... Read more
First Day of Challenge
Monday, November 01, 2010      5 comments

I joined a challenge in the San Antonio Spark team and the first day is today. I'm feeling motivated which is good since I've been in a bit of a slump for a while. Things have been going okay exercise-wise. I ran my first 5K Oct 16th and ra... Read more
Struggling to run
Wednesday, September 01, 2010      2 comments

So not sure why but this morning I couldn't finish my run. My mind beat me today. Last week, Mon, Wed and Fri I ran for 30 minutes and same on Monday but today I had to stop and walk after only 20 minutes. So I walked and a few times I tried to ... Read more
