Listening to Your Body
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
So my Spark Coach challenge is to come up with reasons why I want to lose weight. Here they are:
1. I don't want to be the first person in my family to become diabetic.
2. I want to keep my blood sugar, blood pressure, & cholesterol levels... Read more
Started off bad, ended up good
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 think I'm finally getting the hang of this
It's been about 2 months since I started back on Spark People, started exercising again, and started eating healthy. I have been on Spark People sporadically for the last 3 years. Man, has it been a rocky 2 months! I fell off the wagon over and ... Read more
So I fell off the wagon...
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
I did it!
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
Down 2 Pounds!
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
My church's annual Greek Fest was this last weekend and I worked in the Gyro Booth Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. With all that tempting food around, I did not eat healthy, though I am committed to getting back on track this week. Exercise came i... 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
It's so hard...
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
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
Back on the horse
So these last couple of months have been very rough. Very. Rough. The medication I was taking to control my multitude of mental disorders also caused me to be super sluggish (on one, I was sleeping 10-14 hours per day), and another one caused me... Read more
Day 19 Check-In: Exercising through Skype
I did my first real exercising today. I did Facebook video chat (like Skype) with a friend. I had posted ... Read more
Day 13 Check-In and a Medical Wake-Up Call!
So, the last couple of days have been both good and bad.
First, some good things. I was able to see my psychiatrist after group therapy last Thursday, and we worked on my medication. So far, I'm feeling better. Also, we are *finally* dealin... Read more
