Why do I so quickly forget?!
Friday, April 29, 2011      1 comments

Every time I remember to check in on Sparkpeople, I'm encouraged, motivated, ready to make changes for a healthier life! Then I stop checking in and I'm unmotivated, lazy, and back into bad habits. Why can't I just remember to come here EVERY ... Read more
Will I ever get this?!

Been doing some of my famous "spark-stalking" again. I seem to get a little obsessed if I do the whole tracking thing. But I'm going to make baby steps toward improvement. My eldest child and I have decided to keep each other accountable on o... Read more
Good day!

To avoid obssessive type behavior (checking my spark page dozens of times a day, spending WAY too much time finding ways to earn spark points, etc.) I've sort of been "spark stalking". I've been reading posts, checking out recipes, etc. and not... Read more
Need to commit to this AGAIN!

I mentioned in an earlier blog that I tend to obsess with this whole thing. So my overreaction drives me to do basically nothing! I need to find a way to get the help from Sparkpeople that will motivate me to a healthier weight and life withou... Read more

Went over my "fat numbers" last night but don't honestly care! Sounds strange I know but it's the kind of thing that would normally wig me out. My family went out with another family that we've gotten to be friends with since moving to Iowa an... Read more

I didn't get this way in an instant. And I'm not going to correct it that way either. I put on all this weight one choice at a time. That's exactly the way it's going to have to come off. So I'm going to celebrate those little moments - thos... Read more
Is there a limit to the number of times one can start over?

Okay - Life went a little nuts and I let it take me along for the ride. No teaching contract for the 2009-2010 school year knocked me for more of a loop than I was willing to admit for a long time. I tend to want (thrive on/go crazy for)... Read more
Back FOR REAL this time

Too all of my sparkpeople friends, sorry I've been so absent. I know I was on here in June stating that I was starting over after three weeks absence. But life took an even weirder turn - my mom went in to see her doctor about some pain she wa... Read more
Starting over in so many ways!

Okay - I'm REALLY back now. It's been an interesting week to say the very least! I found out Monday that I will not be teaching at EFCA next year. Didn't really ask for their specific reasons - didn't need the extra ammunition for beating... Read more

No, I did not fall off the planet. I've been very absent from this site for a couple of weeks due to life! Had to get ready for a week's trip to NYC which meant typing up sub plans, making copies for the sub, doing laundry, packing . . . you g... Read more

It's been one of those weeks that can prove to be emotionally draining. The reasons are all good - just a little bittersweet. My oldest child had the audacity to grow up and finish high school. True, graduation has not occured yet. But w... Read more

Okay - I'm exercising regularly - and actually enjoying it. I'm losing weight, the clothes are getting loser, all that good stuff. Now for the quandry. I have been tracking my food. Regulary. Religiously! And as I near my calorie... Read more

With the school show opening this week, I have been a little crazed. Time to work out? Umm . . . not really. But with a half day today, rehearsal was earlier and I actually had the time to go to the gym. No big deal, right? What was amazing... Read more
Small but significant change

Had a major breakthrough. I tracked my meals for yesterday and, thanks to the fact that I ate at school rather than packing my lunch, I went WAY over in a couple of catergories. In the past, my reaction would have been something along the line... Read more
Fun stuff

Been a good day. Got the calorie thing dealt with and I'm feeling tons more energetic as a result. In fact, I was so careful with my meals today that I have the wiggle room for a snack tonight!! That's so cool! Add to that the increased ... Read more
