I'm starting off better
I had ordered some personal fitness items for myself before the holiday's and they came in the mail yesterday. I'm sooo looking forward to putting them into use. I have a daily planner - yeah it's old school, but it works better for me. I got it... Read more
I owe it to myself
I haven't been on spark people in months. I had been working 3rd shift, and was exhausted every day. Who knew that working such irregular hours would really take a toll on my health. I am waiting to hear about a new job prospect, and have set so... Read more
Just when I thought I was on a roll.......
I just got a new job the second week in April. Yea!!! I did my training on 1st shift, then 3 weeks ago, I moved to 3rd shift which will be my permenent shift from now on. Now it's been a year and a half since I've had a full time job. And have I... Read more
Thanks to all who have been supporting me in my journey. I've been gone for a while. but for a good reason, I've recently gotten a job. (yeah!!!!) What was keeping me from the computer was that I was gone much longer than my work day. Until last... Read more
I'm really starting to get it...
Ok, OK, OK, I've been falling off of the wagon for the last 6-8 weeks. Nothing too severe, but I haven't been doing what I know I should be doing. 6 lbs crept back up faster than taking it off. But for once, I'm not freaking out. I know what hap... Read more
Ever have one of those times when you know you're not doing what you should be doing, so you avoid it altogether? That's where I've been. I've had a lot of stresses and have not been watching what I've been eating or exercising either. I know I ... Read more

Having a rough go of things...
I've overeaten for the past 2 days. My dad's in the hospital and my husband and I have been getting into arguments, and I haven't been sleeping much either. I went on an interview Friday morning, just praying that "I get the job". I'm so tired..... Read more
So today is the end of 2011. It was a rough year for me as I'm sure it was for many others. I lost my job last November and my sedentary life and overeating just packed on the pounds. So I weighed myself and I just broke even from a year ago. I ... Read more
Did anyone else "slide" with their diet yesterday hoping to make it up the rest of the weekend?
Yesterday was Thanksgiving. I was good with not overeating the meal portion of the day ............however, dessert...... my weakness. I ended up having more pie than I care to admit to. OK 3 pieces 1 at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Actually the... Read more
I'm proud of myself today
Today has been very stressful. I have been given some very difficult news from a family member that really stressed me out and made me scared and sad. But for once I didn't binge on food. Sure I had 1 pita with some butter on it. But I didn't go... Read more
I'm staring to get the hang of this
This week, I've delivered newspapers to over 600 people in the neighborhood. Today, I cleaned, folded 5 loads of laundry. I delivered each load seperately so I'd have to make more trips. I walked to the mailbox instead of dropping it off on my w... Read more
I love fall!
So far exercising in the fall has proven to be mucj easier for me. I don't do well with a lot of heat, and get sick in the sunlight. So for me, this is heaven! Less bugs, cool breeze and I can go for walks/ jogs outside (ehich is my preferred ex... Read more
