This was a bad day. I almost fell asleep teaching at school today and I fell asleep while I was sitting on the couch surfing the web tonight. I know that if I could just get more exercising in, I could get some more energy. It's a vic... Read more

Yesterday we had a dinner with my mom and my family. She is doing better this week because her treatment had a break this week. So, I didn't do too bad eating-wise but we didn't have a chance to exercise outside this whole weekend. But,... Read more

"The great use of life is to spend it for something that will outlast it." Wow! This is so true in every area of my life. Except for my ability to perservere over my bad days. I have to realize that I am not a failure (completely) ... Read more

If you look at my food diary today, you will see that this is what a typical "out of conrol" day looks like. I'm not going to blame it on my monthly visitor, I'm going to blame it on myself. No one else to blame here! I start out the day ... Read more

"The man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd." This is exactly what I did on Easter Sunday for dinner. I stayed away from the food and the crowd that was around the food. Instead I focused on the Easter ... Read more

Easter Dinner...the big test.
Wednesday, April 04, 2007      1 comments

My family always goes way over board with holiday meals. They graze and hang around the food. You are almost considered "strange" if you aren't drawn to the food like they are. This is what I have to deal with during special occasions and since ... Read more
Still Sick...

Still sick... It really stinks to start off YET ANOTHER TIME on my weight loss journey, just to end up sick the 2nd week of it with a fever and sinus infection. It makes your motivation dwindle, which leads to snacking, which leads to feel... Read more

Today's quote has a lot of truth to it, especially since I've lost 6 pounds since Jan. 3rd. Of course, there were a few set backs between February and March due to family sickness (my mom has cancer) but I'm determined to get back on track and ... Read more
