It was a challenge today...

I think what challenged me most today was my back - it hasn't really been healthy for 10 years now, and it's one of the first things in the morning that put a stop to exercise. I did try some stretching exercises and they helped initially, but ... Read more

Sounds easy, doesn't it! But sometimes, it's not so easy to schedule in with a 4 year old. I chose to do a sitting meditation at lunch today, so I knew getting a walk in after dinner would need to be negotiated. Happily, my son understands my... Read more

Of course, I haven't even been out of bed yet for an hour, I haven't done anything more than drink my 2 cups of water and log on - haven't even eaten yet! But it's still a good day! Why? Because I choose for it to be. I have a lot to do toda... Read more

This week, I focused on what it takes to meet the calorie/nutrition goals. This allowed me to do my shopping today with next week's meals in mind, especially the snacks which is where I need to focus on prep work for those. Mostly, over the la... Read more

First, I would just like to say Thank You to everyone who has shown support - I've only been on SP for 5 days now, but I can see that it's going to end up being an LTR! I'm looking forward to finding some local buddies for walking or even tenni... Read more

I'm just too tired! I know - it's early - just barely 6:30. But this is one of my hardest obstacles to overcome - just doing it. My alarm went off, I hit the snooze. My snooze went off, I said 15 more minutes...then 30...then 45. I could ba... Read more

LOL - I know that next week my fridge will be better prepared! This week, not enough vegetables to help with the munchies - ended up getting a granola bar at work. Could have been worse - it could have been the peanut M&Ms! Boy, then I calcul... Read more

Wow, and I actually tracked everything I ate, although I need to add a few items not on the list (like my ranch dressing and the protein powder I used). I'll have to add them tomorrow. But overall, not too bad for my first day. 140 calories O... Read more

Okay, here I go. I'm 38 and single - let's face it, I'll probably remain single as long as I'm fat. Yes, fat...not just overweight - I used to be just overweight, but after my son was born, I made lots of excuses to not exercise. I have, howe... Read more
