So... Much... Sick
I swear that I have caught EVERYTHING this winter. I have been sick, off and on, since the first cold snap this year. This week I have caught something that is not allowing me to actually eat. Stomach bugs are unpleasant. It hit everyone in the ... Read more
Five weeks in, the second time around
Here are some excuses as to why I'm still only down 5 pounds. I was still sick the beginning of the week, and attempting to survive, much less taking care of the rest of the family and trying to eat right. I admit that I did not choose the best ... Read more
Four weeks in, second time around
This winter it seems we've been sick most of it. This week I'm dealing with having slept for a day and a half, then I just couldn't sleep, so at some point I'm going to need help switching back to my regular sleep schedule. 4 am is no fun to be... Read more
Three weeks in, the second time around
First, my weight. It hasn't gone down, but it didn't go up either.
This week I'm dealing with sick kid(s). The first kid got strep and coughed all night the other night, so we're all dealing with lack of sleep. Now kid #2 is starting to fee... Read more
Two weeks in, the second time around
So far I am still losing. This week was much slower. I lost about a pound and a half. I didn't expect the three pounds I lost the first week. First week loss tends to be at a higher rate than any other week.
I found that tracking actually w... Read more
One week in, the second time around.
So far I have managed to lose 3 pounds my first week. Not surprising. I've done this before and know what to do. I never thought I'd fall back so far, but depression can do that to you.
Depression has various forms, but one of the commonali... Read more
Lose 10 pounds a week with this easy method!
That is what I saw on a magazine while I was out yesterday. It's the click bait of magazines to get you to buy it. It rarely has any good advice and doesn't tell you that it's pretty rare that most people can lose 10 pounds in a week.
Even ... Read more
Today my throat hurts
It seems that I've pretty much had a cold since the holiday season. Two days ago my nose started running again and today my throat hurts like crazy. Fortunately I was able to go grocery shopping (once we managed to get the car started). To be ab... Read more
The mindset matters
I can tell that I'm ready to lose the weight I gained back. It's not some half-assed try like last year. It's not the "I know I should, but I like cookies too much" try. It's the "I have a goal and I'm going to get to it" do.
I am in the sa... Read more
Reset mini goals and a pound lost already
If you ever click the "read more" on someone's page, you'll see spots where they can put their goals. I find that seeing mini-goals helps a lot.
I hit many of my mini goals the first time around and it helped to see those.
My spark Pag... Read more
First, tracking. Second, sleep schedule.
My husband is taking the kids to school in the mornings now, so I get to sleep in. My body is naturally resetting itself to my normal sleep schedule of stay up late and sleep in late. On top of that, the holidays allowed me to sleep in really la... Read more
I know what I did and I know how to do it again
So I thought I was going to be one of those people who didn't gain it all back. I was for a full two years, but then I had something happen that spiraled me into a depression, which means bad choices and lots of cake.
It is honestly harder ... Read more
I gave up. It was fun for a while, but it just didn't stop thinking and I had a hard time logging back in. That has made me lose interest.
One of my biggest pet peeves with games is when they just don't work. It could have wonderful graphic... Read more
Still at level 10
Between the servers and the heat, I haven't bothered to really play my Pokemon Go this week. No one wants to go outside in nearly 100F heat.
I have checked, and the servers don't seem as bad this week so far. I may end up attempting it agai... Read more

Stuck at level 10
The Pokemon Go went so big so fast that the servers are having a hard time keeping up with it. Naturally the weekends are when everyone can play, so I wasn't really able to get on much at all. I did managed to catch a dozen while waiting for the... Read more
