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
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!

New starting weight
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
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
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
Weekly weigh in
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
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
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.
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
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.
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
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
