Sunday, March 07, 2010      7 comments

Ok, so I feel like I have lost my spark, maybe not the whole thing since I am still here, but I'm just not feeling enthusisam lately. Had a cold this week, energy down. Took care of myself and rested, but I just can't get re-excited. Weighed ... Read more

The rain has stopped for a day, and the sun is out, hooray! The rain finally got to me yesterday, spent the day out driving in it and running in and out between appts. By the time I got home, I was cold and tired. Climbed into bed and slept f... Read more

Well, I haven't done written goals thus far and maybe that is why my focus is floundering. Anyway, I am on the journaling challenge for emotional health and today seems like the day to write 'em down. Goal-To lose the excess weight and mai... Read more

Well, after the high of yesterday, gravity kicked in and I went on a food bender last night. Nothing that was bad for me-I got rid of all that stuff, but quantities of food went in my mouth and one thing led to another. A thousand calories, I ... Read more

As much as I want to say yeah, and I do say and feel yeah-finally 10lbs less of me, I don't want my focus to be on the number. I have my energy back. Today I moved 8 20lb pavers 40ft each trip and I did it. I was sore, but not out of breat... Read more

What a productive day, husband and I made decisions about building material for front patio and possibly planter boxes-still have to price those out. Had a healthy breakfast, did not stop for fast food for lunch and came home and made the healt... Read more

What a moody day it has been, gray and rainy, sloggy, did't want to walk today, screwed up my eating last nite, feeling the blues and here I am at the end of the day feeling like everything is really going to be ok. I spent a lot of time-1 hr+ ... Read more

I can do my program so well until night falls and it seems my inner werewolf comes out to play. Dinner at friends' 2 nites in a row. Bread pudding last nite with real whipped cream along with cheese enchiladas. I know I could have eaten half ... Read more

Two weeks now of a vasilating scale, down .5lb, up .5lb. If I didn't feel so darn good, I would think this wasn't working. Looked at the reports of my eating and saw that I was on track 75% of the time, and 25% I was over on calories, carbs an... Read more

One night without snacking
Friday, February 19, 2010      6 comments

I did it. It didn't kill me or keep me awake all night with hunger pains. Comfortable dinner and then I was done eating for the night. A little thing, but I realized that nighttime snacking is just another bad habit for me like smoking or che... Read more

Well, I knew that I needed to amp up the fitness level to really get my weight loss moving. Walking along at a 15 min/mi feels so good and comfy and stress releasing. Today I found myself home in the middle of the day. Decided to walk a route... Read more
