Week 5 Summary
Wednesday, October 16, 2013      1 comments

Wednesday, October 09, 2013      0 comments

My back has now been hurting since Sunday. It may be time to head to the doctor because it's in one specific spot and it's not getting better. It's not getting worse, either, so that's good. It feels better after my walks, so that's also good... Read more
Feeling Better

After 2 days of feeling completely drained and having a fever, it's good to be feeling better. My back still hurts, but hopefully that will pass soon, as well. After taking a nap when I got home from work yesterday I took the dog for a 20 minu... Read more
Sickness Sabotage
Monday, October 07, 2013      0 comments

Being sick is probably the main time that I sabotage myself. Part of the problem is that, when I'm sick, I feel hungry all of the time. I'm sure that my body needs the calories to fight whatever is ailing me, so eating is valid. However, last... Read more
Raining at the Right Times
Saturday, October 05, 2013      0 comments

Fortunately, the rain has held off so that I've been able to take longer power walks with my dog. So far, I am on track to hit that 1,000 of fitness minutes this month. I also started both the 30 Days of Fit Food and Countdown to Skinny Jeans ... Read more
Exercising After Eating
Friday, October 04, 2013      1 comments

I read an article on SparkPeople recently that indicated that you shouldn't workout right after a big meal because it could screw with your digestion. I had never thought about that before. I always eat dinner right when I get home, and then t... Read more
Making Sleep a Priority
Thursday, October 03, 2013      0 comments

It's been a long time since I've set a goal, so now seems like as good a time as any :) My goal is to earn the 1,000 fitness minutes in a month trophy. This might be tricky since I don't go to a gym. Most of my exercise is speed walking the d... Read more

Monday, September 30, 2013      0 comments

I love fall so very much! The cooler temperatures, the changing leaves, the smells, colors, feel, and tastes. I could do without the sinus issues, though :) I am looking at trying some new recipes soon. I've gotten some great ideas form my S... Read more
Eating and Sleep
Sunday, September 29, 2013      1 comments

The problem with having to work 14 hours, plus drive 45 minutes each way to get there, is that I am awake for a very long time. Add to that wake up time in the morning, which includes eating, getting ready for work, packing food, and tending to... Read more

These are the days when it is easiest to stay on track. I haven't been having a difficult time now, but when I am having a tough at least I know all of my food is packed and I'm set for a healthy day when I'm at a group home for the day. Here'... Read more
