I have been looking into several aspects of my life, lack of motivation, strong cravings, headaches, etc. and hypoglycemia keeps coming up. Great, another something to try to get control of when I feel like I have lost all control of myself. Sti... Read more
Really out of shape
Having problems with shin cramps on week 3 of C25k. Going to stay on this week for a while, until I can do the 3 minute jog without having to pause for a minute, almost at the point of tears, and massage out my lower legs. I don't feel bad about... Read more
you know you have become accustomed to pain when you finally get some relief from it and you are kind of shocked by how much pain you have dealt with over such a long period of time,
I did the insanity workout about three years ago now. I "pu... Read more
One of my biggest hurdles is my non-stop cravings. Even when I KNOW I am not hungry, I still have cravings. When I try to quiet my craving by giving it what it wants I immediately jump to another, then I end the day knowing once again I have way... Read more
dejected and still trying
The scale hates me, tired from shoveling 6 foot plus of snow in two weeks. Still going to try to get on the bike at least once a week. Keep and set realistic and accomplishable goals. Beyond frustrated but trying to keep in mind all that it took... Read more
Biked for an hour, eating half what I normally do, substituting water for soda, exercising at work, gained 3 pounds. I am freaking doomed. It is just impossible for me to lose weight. Not without starving myself. I can't keep up motivation when ... Read more
at a loss but not losing
I have realized I have some other goals (financial, emotional, etc.) That need to take precedent for me but tracking calories and when I meet my goal I either feel so hungry or I gain weight. How can I possibly gain weight eating 1300 cal or les... Read more
in for it now
If you haven't noticed, I am fond of blogging. Bad news for you guys, I got a phone from this century for Christmas. Look forward to my more often complaining about life and my own shortcomings for all my efforts of getting into better shape and... Read more
the harm of "getting over it"
fairly certain I have, hmm, "ranted" about the phrase "get over it" before but it seems just to keep cropping up...
so, let the roller-coaster begin...

not what you thought
I think I had the basic concept even when I was fairly small that all those things that I believed in, there weren't all true. Santa, while amusing, was a representation of all the caring feelings that for some reason we bottle up til the end of... Read more
title to be imagined later
I won't lie, I am not going to even try to make this short.
Burning in a boonie-fire- I used to write. No, really, I used to WRITE. All the time. I had notebooks and notebooks of things. Conversations, overheard snippets while I was sitting h... Read more
running out of time and getting nowhere
my cousin is getting married in october, and back in december of last year i gave myself a weight loss goal that had me losing something like 3/4 of a pound a week.... totally doable right??? I had ten months to reach this goal and was go... Read more
I put hungry in quotations because I KNOW that the reality of it is that this, being my one day off a week, is the day where the rest of my weeks worth of TIRED catches up with me.
I am glad I got in two GOOD workouts plus some lawn mowing ti... Read more
a note on exercise, stretching, maxing out, and minding your bumps and bruises
This week, I have had my mind blown, twice.
As per previous post in the week, firstly I had my mind blown by having one single day at my stupid gas station job where there were not threats made to me by some angry someone regarding my refusal... Read more
as if it isn't hard enough...
just a quick something to say here.
as if it isn't hard enough to reach weight goals, be they loss, healthy gain, or maintenance, it really is total poo to: get on the digital scale, have it read out a number to you, get off the scale, get... Read more
