Well, I've gone and done it now. Got on the scale today and YAY me! I'm at an all time high.....I talk a good talk but I don't walk. At all. I don't do anything but laze around. Granted I have medical issues but they aren't going to go away... Read more
Back ... and with a diagnosis!
Changing your way of life is hard. It gets harder when you have an undiagnosed illness. I started off really well last year. 2 weeks, 6 pounds gone like *SNAP*. Then I had surgery. Waylaid for 6 weeks. Then...I just couldn't do it. Extrem... Read more
What did I do?
I signed up for Color Me Rad....and I'm going to participate in a 5K this February. I can't believe I did it....and I can't believe I posted it on Facebook. Now I HAVE to do it. LOL. I may have to crawl the last mile...but I'm going to pass ... Read more
So, I gained a few pounds. I expected it. Once I headed back to work, I knew it would be harder to Spark. Lunch breaks are occasional and can last anywhere from 5 minutes to an hour. By the time I am able to eat some days...I'm no longer hun... Read more

Today wasn't a great day. 2nd day of not feeling well and found out my disability insurance is going to fight me on paying me for this week. My doctor took me off until the 15th but they feel I could have gone back this week. I wish the insur... Read more
Turning Down Temptation
Last night, I wanted to eat. I wasn't hungry, I wasn't thirsty, I just wanted to eat.
I didn't. Instead, I watched a little tv. Cleaned the kitchen (again) and went to bed.
I knew I wasn't hungry, I was just bored.
OTOH, toda... Read more
Bought a Scale
One of the things on my to do list for the week was to buy a scale. Today, I was able to cross that off my list. I have to be honest, I'm kinda curious as to what it will say. I weighed myself at the surgeon's office last week to get a baseli... Read more
Getting ready to go back to work
I had surgery on June 17th and I'm still currently out on disability. But, in one week, on my birthday...I am returning to work. I'm amazed at how quickly the time has flown by. The first week was really hard. The second week, I slept. This... Read more
I'm NOT lovin' it
So late last night, a commercial came on the tv for Breakfast after Midnight at McDonalds. Yea, I caved. So my "breakfast" was at 12:30 this morning. I wasn't hungry...it just looked so good. Not happy with myself but...it is what it is. I ... Read more
Set a goal to get to bed last night before 2 am...and met it. Also slept for about 7 hours which for me, is miraculous. Had yogurt for breakfast. Heck, I ATE breakfast. I've been cleaning the house and moving. My goal for this next week, my... Read more
So, it's day 1 of SparkPeople. I've set up food, water and exercise tracking. Here's the thing...I get bored with tracking. I'm going to set a current goal to track (and I'm trying to be realistic here) of 4 days a week. I know if I say 7...... Read more
