Wow, it's almost been a year since I was last on here

Thursday, July 31, 2014

Not a good thing. Things have been crazy stressful lately with my professional life. I am trying to make a lateral move with my company, which I was approved to do. But my current boss is spearheading a campaign to stop my move. She is behind in replacing me and getting a new person properly trained. But I personally do not feel that is my problem. She has known for 4 weeks that I AM LEAVING. But she is really working hard to stop me. I am very upset about it. Because of that stress and some others at work as well, I have been having chest pains, eye lid spasms, teeth aches and headaches. I need to make some changes.

So this evening I am updating my Sparkpage and getting myself going. I tracked all my food for today even though I did it at the end of the day instead of as the day progressed. So of course, I could have done a better job. emoticon Tomorrow tracking will start in the a.m.

I always feel better once I start back at the gym, all the endorphins or something. So I packed my gym bag to keep in my trunk. I plan on starting back at the gym on Monday morning after work, but if I get to actually start my new job, my hours may be different. So I will have to see what time I get to make it to the Y.

Tomorrow I am going to work on some meal planning for the week and make sure I get in all my water. I am hoping to get some better sleep in and exercise more. But since it's almost midnight my time, I guess I better get off of here. Wish me luck!!! emoticon

It's been a few weeks

Monday, August 19, 2013

Vacation. Work. Convention. I have been a busy girl lately. I have been neglecting my sparking lately as well. I have been weighing myself and trying to watch what I am eating. I have not had time to hit the gym. I had hoped today was the day I headed back to the gym but I am suffering from a stiff neck that is causing migraines. Actually this is day three of this stiff neck/migraine situation. I tried switching pillows in case that was the cause of my ills, but I actually felt worse this morning. Off to get the icy ben gay and take it easy.


YeeHaw! I am down!!!

I was so dreading today. I have been on vacation for a little over a week. I was NOT good. I was not in control with food that was offered or time of day that we ate. I did not have access to a gym or exercise equipment. I was so busy I did not even have time to take a walk all week. I was extremely stressed on vacation as I was with my parents and siblings and we were not getting along due to the circumstances. My plan was to do the best I could at choosing foods that would work for me, skip the snacks that I knew would be offered.

I had planned on doing a "pre weigh in" day yesterday just to brace myself as to the amount of weight GAINED. I woke up late and had to run out the door to get to an appointment. I just knew that was another sign that today we be an expected disappointment.

Well, I am happy to report that I was totally wrong. I am down half a pound. I realize half a pound is not much. But if you had seen the foods I experienced last week and the stress levels that have left me with canker sores in my mouth and headaches every day you would understand my excitement. I am going to happily take my half a pound and work even harder this week to keep it away!!

I am treating myself to a couple of new shirts today, a size smaller!! Another happy goal completed.

Dreading Tomorrow

Monday, August 05, 2013

I have been on vacation and have not had the opportunity to stay on track as well as I had hoped I would. I am going to weigh in a day early tomorrow just to see where I stand. Then I will be heading back down this path more focused.

One postive, I did have a good time on vacation.


Not a great weigh in day...

this was not a good week for me. I was too busy with doggy sitting my grandpup who had surgery last friday. she has been needing constant attention, so i have been longing to go to the gym but not wanting to leave her alone too much. she is going back home tomorrow for a couple of days while my DD is off of work. Then she will be back for the weekend. Hopefully by Monday she will be back home full time.

so my scale showed that I stayed the same this week. I know i did not track three days this week and with the lack of the gym, i had a feeling that would be the situation. so i am not really surprised but kind of disappointed in my efforts.

this next week will be better!
