  • mixed emotions...maybe...idk

    11/23/2014 10:18:14 PM, by JENNYD97

    I don't know if it's really mixed emotions, laziness, stress, frustration or boredom? or maybe all of the above? I know if I don't go to the gym and/or workout I am not going to lose weight. I know if I don't put the right things in my mouth on a regular basis I'm not going to lose weight. Lately ... Read more

  • Fighting sinuses

    11/23/2014 9:27:17 PM, by AUNTRENEE

    My sinuses are being a pain today. I've been fighting them off and on all day long. 3 doses of Excedrin and 2 doses of sinuses medicine and I'm hoping that I don't have to put up with them tomorrow. But I am tired. I walked to church today. But I didn't walk home because my dad picked me up. It... Read more

    11/23/2014 4:56:22 PM, by MARGOH12

    I took a bus ride yesterday. A woman got on with a double buggy, no problem on modern buses. However another woman was told you can't get on we are only allowed one pushchair if there is a double on on. I wonder how they would react to a triplet pushchair?

    Well, here it is Sunday again, another week closer to the new year. Hopefully it will be a good one. We will just have to wait and see.

    11/23/2014 10:22:26 AM, by BLUEJEDIBUBBLES

    Not sure if I'm trying to fight off something. From about 4:30 am last night (last 3-4 hours?) I've felt cold. Not like a fan is blowing on me cold. Just like I have a slight chill and I'm achy all over. Took some tylenol about 15 minutes ago, hope it kicks in soon. I don't want to miss chu... Read more

    I know I need to journal every day. It helps me learn more about myself. I always have some type of revelation if I write enough. It was odd to look at where I was at the last time I blogged. I haven't really felt happy for at least a year. Since that time, I've gotten a divorce and have been str... Read more

    These past few days have been full of highs and lows. I'm not counting my weigh-in today. I should have known better. I had a crappy dinner last night and way too much sodium.

He sees me make my meal decisions by using my SparkPeople app on my phone and every night, regardless how exhausted I am, I have to log in to the website. He finds my pa... Read more
