Totally Frustrated!
Sunday, July 07, 2013      4 comments

I've logged in food and stayed within my calories, have watched my cholesterol intake, exercised almost daily....definitely more than I have in the past. AND I'm gaining weight and not losing. I am so frustrated. I can't find a reason to keep... Read more
The Bottomless Pit

That is exactly how I felt today. I just couldn't get enough to eat for some reason. I've done pretty well today. My calories are in range, but I did not eat as healthy as I could have. I just wanted some of the foods that I've deprived myse... Read more

It is day 6 and I am still on track. I have to admit, I am somewhat surprised. I've done well with me eating today. Everything is on track! I'm nursing a sore knee and ankle so haven't exercised today. I'm feeling quite tired, too....but am... Read more

I hope everyone had a great Father's Day! It was very difficult to stay on track with all of the food around today. I did have some popcorn that I didn't track yet, and that is going to put me over. But I did keep my cholesterol down, and... Read more

Well, days 1 & 2 are just about over with. Went over on calories a little bit, but kept everything else (proteins, fats, carbs, cholesterol, etc.) within the limits! That is even with eating out for lunch and dinner! I tracked it all even th... Read more
Back in the Saddle.....Again!

Yes, I'm trying again. This time I'm not going to be so hard on myself and give myself a little patience. Take smaller steps toward getting healthy. Starting over sucks, but not starting over is much worse.... Read more
Looking for the silver lining

Not sure what has "sparked" my new outlook, but I'm glad it did. I've decided to find the silver lining in every situation. I really need to work on my stress so this is my solution to this problem. Exercising works well, but I can't always g... Read more

It is day 3 or 4 of fighting a cold. I can't believe how knocked down I feel. I've lost all motivation to move, eat right, etc. Totally feel like I've let this cold sabotage all of my efforts. All I want to do is eat, and I don't seem to car... Read more

I can't believe that I actually did it! I completed a very hilly 6.3 mile hike today! It was over a year ago since the last time I was able to walk that far on flat terrain. I'm so shocked that I was able to do this hike. I had a few twinges... Read more

Work has been really stressful the past couple of days. It seems like when I try to do something to help reduce the stress, the higher ups find a way to add more which totally defeats all of my efforts. Several things happen when I'm under a g... Read more
Painful Monday

Well Saturday I ran the first mile of a 5K. After that I ran and walked. I rested and iced my knee yesterday, but had to bowl in the after as part of a league. Needless to say, I didn't bowl all that well. I was sore and my knee was in pain.... Read more
