When I was in elementary school I was on a swim team. I loved the time I spent in the water and it is the only time I can remember loving a competitive sport. Many years later when I was in college I took a swimming class for my PE requirement a... Read more

So over a month in and for two days I've "gained" back 2 lbs. In my head I know that it probably is due to that time of month but boy oh boy is it frustrating. To top it off I haven't been feeling so great for the same reason and it has really p... Read more

I seem to always try and start my journey jumping in with both feet super excited and thrilled to start. Within a short amount of time I stop one component and then everything seems to fall apart along with it. It is hard but I'm trying to start... Read more

Just clicked off the last week of my "Official Tame Your Sweet Tooth Challenge"! It actually has been a really good challenge. I was worried that I would have a lot of desire for candy and sweets since I started it because I had been on a serio... Read more

Starting up with SparkPeople again this past month I had to reset my mini goal weight check ins (Every 10 lbs lost). There are a few of those weights that I have hit before and it was difficult to erase the times that I reached the goals. Knowin... Read more
I'm getting SMART
Wednesday, March 25, 2015      2 comments

Adding a few SMART goals to this journey. I like the idea of making some "posters" and putting them up around my room and house to keep my mind on track and focused. 1. I will cook 2 meals for the week (1 lunch, 1 dinner) that fit into a... Read more

Over the next 3 days I'll be accompanying a student on a field trip to a music festival. I'm excited to be a part of the who event but meal planning when eating out is always a struggle. Right now almost 2 weeks in I am feeling comfortable cooki... Read more
Turning Point

I've had a lot of ups and downs with my weight. The lowest weight I reached since I was an adult was a few years ago (with SparkPeople). It had been many months since I had started and I was starting to struggle again to stay motivated. I ... Read more

I've been away for a while and now I'm back! For the past few months I haven't been using spark people or following any healthy eating habits. I know I need to restart so I've decided to come up with a two week cycle. Every two weeks I will... Read more
Body distortion
Wednesday, June 09, 2010      2 comments

So I've seen a lot of things about people who are thin but when they look in the mirror all they see is someone who is ugly and overweight and not what they really look like. It's sad but it does effect a lot of people. (I believe it's called bo... Read more

I decided today to make a small booklet to carry around with me with nutritional information for when I go to restaurants with friends. I know that I will go out to eat so I might as well be prepared. It is hard to find a lot of nutritional info... Read more

It finally happened. At the end of the day I had spare everything and decided to treat myself to a little chocolate. I had it rationed it out so that I could only have two squares. Then it hit me. I wanted to eat the whole bar. I stopped in... Read more
