Boot camp starts Monday! I'm trying a new medicine, lamictal, for my bipolar. So far so good! Sorry I haven't been blogging much. I've been unpacking, and seeing a slew of doctors for various things. Getting ready for this computer p... Read more
Whoa!

I woke up today and I was back down to 391.4 :) OKAY, maybe it was just water weight. That means I only have 3 lbs to lose to be back to where I was in the beginning of April! I can do this! 12/01/16: 405 01/06/17: 395 03/22/17: 390.... Read more
New starting weight
Tuesday, April 25, 2017      10 comments

394.2 A gain of almost 6 lbs :/ all of the fast food and maybe the side effects of my medicine contributed to this gain. I think I need to just take this one pound at a time and try my best to swing it downward. I might not like the number ... Read more
I moved!

The move is over! Now I'm unpacking everything. I have 3 weeks until the bootcamp starts, so I'm planning to focus on eating healthy, going to the gym, fewer fast food and more homemade meals. I love my new apartment! I feel like I have a fresh... Read more
Low Carb and updated Fast Food Plan
Tuesday, April 11, 2017      7 comments

I took a diabetes education class with my friend, Cat! The dietitian there recommended that I try to get 10 servings of 15g carb, or about 150g per day as part of my plan to lower my blood sugar. I can do this! I will do this! I've up... Read more

My brother is coming out to help me pack for the move this weekend! For the past 2 days, I've been eating breakfast and sticking to my eating goals. I do feel so much better when I spread the calories out through the day instead of eating ... Read more

I gained 1.2 lb this week :( I know why. My cravings and portions have been out of control -- from pizza last Wednesday to fast food mega-meals, I haven't been pre-tracking and I have been eating pretty much whatever I wanted, includ... Read more

Today I was feeling good so I went a little bit faster at the gym. I managed to beat my personal best on my mile of jogging intervals by more than 2 minutes :) I've been to the gym 5 times now in 2 weeks... Wed will be my 6th! ... Read more

I'm down 2.2 lb this week :D!!! I wasn't perfect (far from it), but I made a lot of good, small decisions. Hopefully this trend continues next week! Today I did my strength training at the gym, then bought some boxes; I'm work... Read more
Gym day 2 and packing
Monday, March 27, 2017      6 comments

A good start to the week! I made it to the gym this morning despite not wanting to go (I guess that's why it helps to have a gym buddy, right? She helped motivate me!) Once I got there, I was fine. I did 6 jogging intervals on the treadmill with... Read more
Moving!
Saturday, March 25, 2017      11 comments

I'm so happy!!!! I'm going to be moving from this apartment to another one with the same floor plan, in a different building. Why? Because this one is horrible and is really close to the highway, and no matter what I do, I cannot relax here!... Read more
First day at new gym
Thursday, March 23, 2017      6 comments

Went well!! I took the advice of other Sparkers and I didn't push myself too hard. I did a brief warm up on the elliptical (phew that thing is hard), and then I used 3 weight machines -- leg press, chest press, and lat pull down for two se... Read more

Omgosh! I weighed in much lower than I thought I would and well below the threshold for my scale to measure me. 390.4 I was expecting 405 or higher :) So, I'm down about 6 lb from when I was in the hospital earlier this year, and down... Read more

Thanks for the support on my last blog. It means a lot to me that so many wonderful Sparkfriends are supporting me. I had my appointment with the sleep doc today and it went well; I'm going to have a sleep study on Apr 1st. She said I shou... Read more
First day back
Monday, March 20, 2017      7 comments

It feels really weird to be back in my apartment, but here I am! I have these memories of feeling bad in this apartment, so it's very strange to be feeling good in it right now, but I guess I will get used to it. I almost feel afraid that ... Read more
