Today, I begin tracking my food again. I had been doing okay on my own. I got down to 147 and was thrilled. But this morning, I was 157. I am going to change my ticker to reflect that and start again. I would like to get down to 145. Even ... Read more
My constant struggle

I have come so far and learned so much since joining SP. The one major area I am still having trouble with is my eating. I am a constant eater and I don't always make the best choices. I eat when I am stressed, tired, have a change in emotion... Read more

I have been doing so bad the past two weeks. I knew when I went to NY to visit my family that I would be thrown off track. Between that, all the birthdays lately and Easter, I am doomed. I had gotten to 161 but this morning I am 163. I did g... Read more

I didn't make my goal. I came pretty close though. When I joined Sparks last April I had wanted to weigh 165 by my birthday. This morning, I was 169. So close. I am still happy to see that number but can't help but to be a little bummed. ... Read more

Of course this would happen. With the changes in weather I should have seen this coming. I started not feeling "right" last Thursday. Over the weekend it got worse. I think I have a sinus infection. I missed my spin class yesterday and am s... Read more

Wednesday, December 31, 2008      1 comments

I did it! I actually did what constitutes as a "run" today. I didn't die and I felt okay. I have got to give credit to all the runners. You make it look so easy. It is anything but! I just wanted a new challenge, something different. I ha... Read more

Urgh. After having a good week I did it, like every week, I found a way to screw myself. It comes so easily these days. I have been busting my butt at the gym and staying within my calorie range. But then tonight my friend asks me to go to C... Read more

Missing:Motivation. Reward if found.
Thursday, May 22, 2008      1 comments

Okay, so I am kidding about the reward but not about losing my motivation. I took a break due to having company and I just can't seem to get things going again. I have re-started tracking my calories. I just haven't been to the gym or for a w... Read more
