The good news: I actually lost some weight in January....
The bad news: I gained most of that weight back in the few days we had the ice/snow storm!! I thinks it's pretty clear now, that I am a stress (emotional) eater.

I finally got back to work yesterday. I was so glad to get out of the house. Today is another day and I'm up and ready to hit the road and actually have a full day at work.

I have been working on a jigsaw puzzle, trying to stay calm and not be upset.
The weather only bothers me when it is tornadic.....
David's sister tried again to start trouble, this time we got it corrected without
issue, but she tried to get Daniel to call the house....which he cannot do from
Afghanistan....so his wife called us and then I had to get things straightened
out.
My blood pressure is going crazy, up and down at a ridiculous rate and my pulse is
causing Tachycardia....we called the dr. Tuesday, come in Weds., they called and
cancelled and set me up for Thurs. then called and cancelled that and moved me
to Monday....lol....guess they aren't too worried...

I walked home - a little over 4 miles - day before yesterday. The snow makes me want to veg and eat carbs. Yesterday was a lost day - lots of TV and lots of snacking. Back on track today with plans to work out in a little while. (You are inspiring, CKAYTHOMAS.) It's nice to see the snow melting, but I'll miss all the traffic my bird feeder's been getting! Y'all stay warm.

We've had a house full of guests since Tuesday. A friend and his daughter, our daughter and our grand daughter have all been here since they were unable to get to their homes. The temperature is rising quickly and the high is supposed to be 42 today so everyone will be gone by noon. Then we get to clean up the place and have some peace and quiet... Don't get me wrong, loved having them and was happy to share the safe place but I'm ready for a little privacy. And, it's been a bit of a challenge to prepare food for everyone without imposing our dietary restrictions on them. When I was preparing pancakes for everyone this morning I really wanted to have a plate full with them. Oh well, I made it through it.

We are fine here....had leftover chicken and noodles and cauliflower for dinner.
Is cold, and about 2 inches of snow....

David lived in Wyoming and I lived in Kansas City and Southern Illinois so this snow
is childs play...we went and filled up the truck with gas and he actually had to pull out
and pass some folks on the interstate because they were driving 10-15 milesperhour....

I know some people are scared of driving on this but if you slow down and relax, you
will be fine.

OK so I made stuffed green peppers tonight for dinner but made them with turkey instead of hamburger, This is the first time I ever used ground turkey and I just gotta say that they were so good.

Me too Cindy. I've tracked, worked out, walked, and relaxed more in the last two weeks than I did all last year. It was time to get back to basics or at the very least back to working on me.

Congrats to you Anna on 14 years. I have 18 years in my marriage and even though it isn't always perfect *but then what is* I know he is there for me and has my back.

My journey is ongoing and I don't know I will reach my goals. Oh I set spots on the calendar but then that comes and goes, but I'm still plugging along and taking this one day at a time.

Cindy R- you've come to the right place. Jump in & join our challenges, get active in our chat thread. We're all here for each other. Don't forget to track.

Happy hump day. Today my DH & I celebrate 14 years of marriage. This time 4 or 5 years ago, we were before getting a divorce. Thank God, the people (person) that was coming between us is no longer in our lives. Thank God for giving me the strength to fight for my family, my marriage & not throw my hands in the air & quit. Quitting would have been so easy to do. Don't think there weren't times I almost walked away. But if I would have quit, we wouldn't be where we are today. Happier and stronger than ever.

Just like this weight loss journey. It would be so easy to give up & say I can't do this any more. I'm not where I want to be,but I'm not where I was a year ago. I started my serious SparkPeople journey last May @ 199 lbs. (Obese). I am now 166.8. (Over weight). If I would have stuck to the plan, I would be almost to my goal weight. But I'm not going to beat myself up over it. Because I've come a long ways.

Have a great day everyone.

emoticon Darlene. I know you're happy.

Happy Saturday. I hope everyone's weekend is off to a good start. I am sitting in a blind in the middle of the woods with about 4 layers of clothes, jacket with hood, a Beenie on my head, gloves, hand warmers inside my gloves, body warmer in between my 2 pairs of thermals, 2 pairs of socks & hunting boots. Hoping a deer will step out.

Cindy- how's BLC going for you? We are using a new tracking system this round. It's taking some getting used to. Our challenge this weekend, which may be blc wide, it to set our SMART goals. (One of the challenges at least). Once I'm done, I am going to post them here. I need help with accountability.

I'll post pics of my view this morning for all to see.

Kristi I can relate with the ups and downs....mostly ups. But I have my mind set on losing once and for all. No it won't happen over night and actually as I looked at my fitbit dashboard this morning I was a little upset with myself. I've stayed about the same for the last couple of months. I'm down, I'm up. Same over and over again. Time to move this thing once and for all.

Darlene, nice to hear you are doing well. When will you get the staples out?

The weather is definitely crazy with this warm/cold stuff. Even when it was warm and sunny I didn't get out and enjoy it though...sinus infection. I think the wild shifts in temperature are not helping it. Ugh...I really wish it would get better soon though. I've had quite enough of this.

Things are um..going here. I'm working on getting back to business once again when it comes to my eating and exercise. I was down a few pounds, and then back up a few pounds, so now I'm looking to get seriously down to business now that the holidays are over and there won't be anything else to disrupt me for quite a while. I should be able to gain some momentum before anything else comes up, then I'm better equipped to handle holidays and the like.

Hope you all are doing well!!

Here we go again with the weather. I ended my weekend with a nice three mile walk with my daughter and the pups. now I suppose the weather will change and that will throw me for a curve with my walking. But I have my treadmill.

Same here Anna. I ended up walking downtown with my daughter and it was wonderful. Sunshine, warm, and getting our exercise and a few laughs. Now that ended a wonderful day all around. Took pups to the vet in the am and got that done for another bit. Today we walk as it is suppose to be nice again.

Was partly sunny/partly cloudy here today. No rain today, but we were expecting it.

I ventured out to walmart today and we got a few things....did not want to overdo, but
felt good to get out.

Glad to hear it Darlene. Hey this could be worse....could be the heat of the summer and itching like that. lol.

Having a wonderful week here. As I type this though it is pouring outside. Yuck. So much for walking outdoors today, I guess it is the treadmill after all.

Hi y'all! How is it going? Okay here. I'm home today with my daughter not feeling well, so I'm determined to take advantage of the unexpected (although much unNEEDED) day off from work and try to get some house cleaning done.
I'm still working on getting in gear again after the holidays. For some reason I've just been drained it seems. I feel my motivation creeping back in, so right now I'm just taking things slow and working on planning. Once again I need to break the bad habit of not eating breakfast and skipping meals, so that is where I'm starting.
It's gray and overcast today, but at least it's a bit warmer. I just could not live in the North! I feel for all those people in such cold and bitter weather right now.
Hope you all have a good day!

Kristi

No jurory duty for me after all this week. Yay. Now for to catch up woitb the rest of my team & get focused. I will start getting on the elliptical during lunch for 1/2 hour. Instead of a few days a week, it will be daily.

Enjoyed the dog drive this weekend. Didn't see anything but it was nice being around friends & family enjoying the great outdoors. It was cold. My DH lost my hunting dog Friday morning. Don't tell me God doesn't answer prayers. I prayed last night if someone found him they would call us. (His collar has my Dh name & number on it). If he wasn't going to be returned, I prayed he'd be taken care of. I begged & pleaded with God not to let my baby freeze & starve to death. While hunting this morning, my dh got a call. Someone found my dog this morning & he is now home. I cried & thanked God when my dh called & told me. I got to thinking about God & his love for us. He cared so much for my boy & answered my pray not to let him starve & freeze to death. How much more does God love & care for us.

Good night. I love my team. Have a great week. Keep warm.

It is raining here, after being in the 50's all day, so I keep going to the door to check
for this snow we are expecting.

I am so glad everyone is renewing their vow to take care of self....I saw one had posted
on Alabama that had lost 8 lbs in one week....


Have a good week everyone, I have to take one of our dogs to the vet to get checked out
and perhaps a shot...he is limping badly in his left back leg, and he has bowed legs so we
figure it is arthritis or possibly his length is causing back issues. Also have to call the drs.
office and ask why I haven't received papers on the surgery, nor the visit to set up the papers
at the hospital....bummer....I don't see how we will get all this done by Tues.

I made a new start Monday with the new year - a new start mentally and physically. I am getting off sugar (a bit of a headache during sugar withdrawal) and I am eating as "clean" as I can - limiting additives/preservatives as much as possible.

So far I have lost 3 pounds! That gives me the incentive I need to do the extra work of cooking clean. I have also exercised every day but one this week. That is the most I have done since my foot injury last September.

Anna I understand how you feel. I am not a morning person, I allow myself just enough time to get ready for work and arrive on time. In the evening, I am tired and I don't want to walk by myself. When it gets warm again I can swim laps in our pool, but I am not taking the polar bear plunge, lol. I am still focusing on just eating right and not going over my calorie allotment. I will work things in eventually. Right now I am still pretty content with myself and that I haven't went on an eating spree any this week. Yay!!! I am really working on my thought processes and paying attention to me for a change. We will get there my friend, we WILL get there!!!

I get tired of being tired. I don't care how early I go to bed, I can never get up early enough to work out. I'm going to have to do something. It's hard doing it in the afternoon. I get home from work & have to cook dinner. By the time dinner is ready, I want to eat so I'm not so late eating. Then I can't work out after eating because I get sick. I'm really going to have to push myself.

We can all do this. I lost my way for a bit but funny how it comes back in a rush and all you want is to get it right. Eat right, exercise, just feel better all around. You get so tired of being tired all the time.

Michelle,
It can be your year! Keep that good attitude and make healthy choices every day!
I made my first homemade steel cut oats today for breakfast. They take 30 minutes to cook and I am used to a much faster breakfast. I added 10 fresh blackberries. So far I am still eating healthy - no processed foods so far in 2014!

I'm so ready to get fit. I let myself go for ;two years and this last month or so I've finally gotten the me back in my head that was missing. I was so tired of being tired, if that makes any sense. But I'm on track and tracking which is a plus and exercise? I have set a goal to get at least 10 minutes a day. No matter what it is. I need to get my motivation back and I believe for some reason 2014 may just be my year.

Happy new year. It's time to put 2013 behind me & move forward in 2014. I have 43 #s to lose to meet my goal. My original goal was February, but do to my down times it was pushed to may. That means I will need to lose over 10 #s a month. Wow. May need to push it back some more. emoticon

I have finally figured out the sticky & challenge posting. The January challenge is up & ready for you to join. You will also notice a new weekly challenge, virtual hike. Our fitness minutes counts toward miles hiked. Check out the challenge for more details.

Let's kick 2014 in the booty.
