Frustrated
Thursday, March 17, 2016      2 comments

I enjoyed my dinner at the Indian restaurant last night with my family so much. I really did feel like I did a good job with my portions. However, I weighed myself this morning and I gained 4lbs. In one day. Ugh. Also, I haven't had a chance t... Read more
Family visit

Okay so my dad and my brother are coming to visit today and they will stay for the rest of the week. These are my concerns: My dad is a chef and absolutely everything that he cooks is fantastically delicious. I'm afraid of losing self-control. A... Read more
To be HEALTHY to feel good
Friday, March 11, 2016      4 comments

I have to tell myself that the primary and most important motivation for me doing this, watching every calorie and excersizing daily is to avoid diabetes. Because if I am just focused on my physical form, then every time I look down and see my p... Read more
Weighing in

I decided to go back to weighing in once a week. I read an article that said that weighing daily is good because it shows you that fluctuations are normal. That was just annoying. Only once a week.... Read more

Every time I am doing my walking work out with Leslie Sansone and she says, "I know you are smiling!" or "I'm glad you feel good!" I think to myself, how the **** do you know I smiling or how I feel?! I am busting my ass to lose a pound at a tim... Read more
Promises to myself

My new year's resolution was to stop feeling guilty for spending money on myself. So, a couple of weeks ago, I got a pedicure for the first time in 4 years. That was GREAT and really has to happen more often. Then this prediabetes diagnosis hap... Read more
Night Owl. NOT a morning person.
Thursday, March 03, 2016      1 comments

I often tell myself that I will change my sleeping habits and go to sleep earlier so I can wake up earlier. I like to watch movies and knit while my son sleeps. I could easily stay up knitting "one more row" until 1am or later. Also, I sometim... Read more
Learning and struggling

First of all, this cold is kicking my butt. I don't sleep well because it is difficult to breathe at night. I have low energy and need more sleep. I just have to keep going though because I can't afford to miss work. It sucks because I only hav... Read more
Cheat day

I am calling today a cheat day. Because, well, I broke down and had three slices of my favorite pizza. Hawaiian. I wasn't very active either. I just haven't been feeling well. Last night I plugged in the humidifier and I have been drinking hone... Read more
A rough start

Today started out as a crap day. Everything just seemed to go wrong. I got through it though it was a bumpy start. It ended with a few glasses of wine and a good friend. I'm feeling much better now.... Read more
Feeling pretty good

Well my scale says I lost weight. And I definitely feel like I lost some weight. The problem is I'm not really sure how much, because when I started this I was kind of guessing what my weight was. So I either lost 10 pounds or maybe it was 6. Ei... Read more
Doing it wrong.
Sunday, February 21, 2016      0 comments

I think I figured out that I'm using this app wrong. I also use another app that is a pedometer, so I tend to not log exercise into this app until the end of the day. The problem is that once I look at all of the calories I burned on my pedomete... Read more

I haven't been going on to church lately. I really want to motivate myself to go tomorrow. It has been difficult because I just want to sleep in on Sundays. Well, I have been trying to walk as much as possible lately and in the back of my min... Read more

I didnt even own a scale when I started this ten days ago. I was just trying to remember from my most recent doc appointment. Also, I did weigh myself at my friend's house just over a week ago. Unfortunately, I didn't write it down or log it in... Read more
