Thursday, November 19, 2015      4 comments

Boy, did I learn a big lesson today. So I'm bad about listening to my body. I exercise with stretched out muscles (bad), eat junk food when I have healthy food in the fridge (bad), and just generally don't pay attention. I have IBS, so I ne... Read more

Started off bad, ended up good

Tuesday, October 27, 2015      6 comments

So today started off bad. I've been trying to wake up earlier in the morning as I need to get used to getting up early for when I go back to work. I also am going on a trip this weekend and need to get up at 5 on Friday so I've been trying to ge... Read more

So my challenge for today is not to complain, which is really hard because, let's face it, I'm a complainer. I've been on spark people (again) since August and I've lost 1 measly pound. That makes it really hard to keep on going. I'm exercising ... Read more

So I had pizza this week. And garlic cheese bread. And a giant salad covered with cheese. It was alllll the cheese! I was craving it so bad, I dreamed about it. I gave in. That was yesterday. Today I'm back on track. I walked 65 minutes on the t... Read more

Monday, October 12, 2015      2 comments

So I slept awful last night. I tossed and turned the whole night because of the heat and woke up late. I couldn't go to the gym because I had some job applications to drive over and turn in to human resources offices. I was out the door quickly ... Read more

Saturday, October 10, 2015      3 comments

So I'm down two pounds, which is fantastic. I have kept to my calorie levels and exercise goals for the week, so I'm really happy that it's paid off. I was hoping to lose about half a pound this week, but I'll take it! I now only have 10 lbs. to... Read more

So my weight has been fluctuating all over the place. up 3 lbs. yesterday, down 4.5 lbs. today. I don't know what's going on with my body! I'm working on counting my calories even if I don't eat healthy, which should help. I do so good during th... Read more

So I've been trying to exercise more and eat better, but I seem to be failing at that daily. I have been exercising 2/week, which is an improvement, but I can only exercise for about 20 minutes on the treadmill before I am too exhausted to go on... Read more

Back on the Horse Part 2

Tuesday, September 15, 2015      2 comments

So about a year and a half ago I had basically reached my weight goal. I had lost approximately 40 lbs. Then I gained back about 20 lbs., but kept the rest off. The last two months, I have gained back most of the rest of those 20 lbs. So I'm bas... Read more
