Thursday, August 29, 2013 1 comments
I'm only taking one class, but the stress is really affecting my diet. The class itself isn't that stressful. It's merely the straw that broke the camel's back. I have all this other stress in my life (mainly from trying to deal with my M.S.), s... Read more

I am not a morning person, but maybe I need to be. I used to exercise at night but since I am getting my kids to bed earlier, I need to be quiet while they are falling asleep. So I have been missing workouts. At least I've noticed a pattern. Le... Read more

At the end of October my Grandma died. She was a skinny health nut most of her life. She died from alzheimers. I personally think she gave up on life after losing her son (my Uncle) in January of 2010. He fell through the ice while ice fishing. ... Read more

I actually dipped below 200. It was so exciting, but I did it by starving. Then things got really stressful at school and I studied so hard I left no time for exercising. I put on 8 pounds mostly in my gut and face. Tomorrow I am starting ... Read more

Ugh. I started the month off strong. ..and eventually blew it. I am not consistent and every time I try to re-lose the same four pounds, they get harder and harder to lose. A couple of places I went wrong this month. 1. I overdid it e... Read more

I exercise and the majority of the food that I have been eating is healthy. Still, I would have a daily treat and some of my portions have been too large. I haven't been gaining or losing (not counting a five pound flux since the holidays). ... Read more

I fell in the stress trap. My uncle died last week. Wednesday was the showing and Thursday was his funeral. With all the stress and running around I fell off the wagon. Now I'm coming down with a cold which is going to make getting back on the w... Read more

Hey all. Has this ever happened to you? I am eating very healthy. I am not tracking as strict as I should, but I feel I am eating enough (maybe a tiny bit over). I am exercising 5-6 days a week(30-60min/day) and yet the workouts are getting hard... Read more

I just wanted to let all my sparkfriends know I've been battling an infection that has left me feeling very sick. At one point, I went to the emergency room feeling like I was going to die. I'm still very sick, but I am doing a little bit better... Read more

On Monday, September 28th, my father-in-law passed away. I hold on to my faith that we will see each other again. Until then, I shall just do my best to be the best person I can. Who can afford to waste a day, when none of our tomorrows are guar... Read more

Hey friends. If you've noticed I've been a little less present these days, here is why: 1. My father-in-law has taken a turn for the worse. He was given 2 weeks to 2 months to live on July 29th. He is very ill and I think his time may be co... Read more

This morning my face feels puffy. I am up two pounds. My stomach is still gurgly from eating the wrong things. I feel awful. Just two weeks ago, I was feeling so strong, but today I feel weak and my bad knee has been aching. What was the benefit... Read more

Hey. I've been exercising hard, but I am taking in more calories than I am burning. This week the doctor reduced my levothyroxine from 250 to 200. I asked him if I should go to 225, but he wants me on 200 despite the fact that 200 was too low in... Read more
