I am not anti technology. I love my computers, smartboard and my ipod. I also obviously enjoy SP. However I have fought and fought against my friends and family who wanted me to join Facebook. What did I need it for and I have anxiety about so... Read more

I am little behind in tracking my mileage for my trip. Life has gotten in the way (LOL) and there have even been days I have forgotten my pedometer and have not tracked an accurate picture of how much I have traveled. Oh-well. So I began ... Read more

I signed up for a 5K today. No backing out now. I am a little nervous because I haven't been doing so well with my training, but since I put money down it gives me incentive to try harder. It also gave me the push I needed to buy better runni... Read more

Well I feel really out of touch. I have been so busy this week I have barely been on SP. I was worried that without doing my usual routine and posting like I have been that I would have made some mistakes this week. I made sure to find time t... Read more

I was beginning to get a little frustrated by my lack of progress with the scale. I started 2011 at 187 pounds and I am down to 183.5 this week. I also had somehow convinced myself that when I started SP in April I was only 190. That means ov... Read more

Today is weigh in day and I have been dreading it since Wednesday. I made poor eating choices this week. I went over my calorie intake by about 100 calories 5 days this week. In the past I would have made all kinds of excueses as to why I ate... Read more

It is good to have an end to journey towards, but it is the journey that matters, in the end. ~ Ursula K LeGuin, novelilst ~ I just found this quote and it sums up what I am doind here at SP. I am on a journey. I view the end as wh... Read more
No more excuses
Saturday, January 29, 2011      3 comments

I have spent the past week reflecting on how I came to be the weight I am today. I realized that I have always made excuses for my bad habits instead of taking responsibility. "I have to take care of the kids" "I'm too tired" "I have to work"... Read more
