  • A new approach...that starts completely with me

    7/23/2016 1:58:45 PM, by SILVER_WOLF1221

    I saw this and I realized that when it comes to keeping up with eating correctly and exercising, this has been my major downfall. I have finally realized that I have become obsessed with seeing results and ignoring how much I feel better when I make the right decisions. The first time I ... Read more

  • Another scorcher

    7/23/2016 1:13:36 PM, by MLIEN913

    I tried to workout today but the heat is killer. Being asthmatic doesn't help either. Well I'll just have to ride it out. I can't wait for the show tonight. It promises to be a great line up. Praise should be flowing high. ... Read more

  • Yay for an easier shark week

    7/23/2016 11:43:53 AM, by SSMITH762

    So shark week began yesterday and it's another one without feeling as tired as I used to, plus no cramps so far or headaches. This is definitely one of the benefits of low carb that I didn't expect. I'm still a little tired, but it's not like I want to sleep all day like before. I used to take of... Read more

  • Happy Friday

    7/21/2016 2:46:39 PM, by MLIEN913

    This weather has been so crazy lately. Today starts another heatwave. I wouldn't mind so much if I had decent air conditioning in my home office.

    Well, I'm starting to feel better. My joins that were achy are less achy. My neck is less stiff. Well, less painful. Trying to describe this kind of stiff neck is the weirdest thing I've experienced because it is uncomfortable and painful, but not the worst thing. I think the antibiotics ... Read more

  • Failure versus success

    7/20/2016 2:06:42 PM, by JENSTRESS

    Want to know the reason you fail? You. The reason I fail, it has ALWAYS been me. Why? Is it because failure feels more comfortable than success? Hear me out here. Failure, we know what it is like, because we feel like we are starting from failure. When we start at our heavie... Read more

    7/20/2016 9:48:16 AM, by JENSTRESS

    Well, after the most stressful Monday, I kept figuring things out. 1) I'm very close to my goal weight, and because of that, I've been getting a little too lax. 2) I have an illness that I have to fight. 3) Nutrition will help BOTH of these. I have realized that once I get close ... Read more

    The heat wave has temporarily broken. That means I can get in my full workout today. Good thing too since I feel flabbier than normal. With all the equipment I have it's harder to do floor routines. I have to give it a try somehow. Without crunches and planks my belly isn't shrinking anymore.... Read more

    7/19/2016 9:20:53 AM, by JENSTRESS

    Ugh. Yesterday was one of the worst days. Just period. So I have Lyme disease. There is some pain and some symptoms that aren't enjoyable, but it isn't that bad and I'm on antibiotics, so I'm praying that I can quickly heal. It could have been worse. My 5 year old could have it. So I'm re... Read more

  • Lazy Sunday

    7/17/2016 7:45:57 PM, by MLIEN913

    Today turned into a lazy Sunday. I had planned to do some yard work and extra walking but I woke up with pretty bad chest congestion. Just walking the dog was tough, especially with the heat and humidity. After washing my hair I sat down to dry it and promptly fell asleep. Each time I woke up I seem... Read more

  • In search of professional shoes

    7/16/2016 7:49:05 PM, by SSMITH762

    So with the new in office job, I went shopping this weekend. I also went shopping because I mentioned my weight loss to a friend at work and she said she'd noticed that my pants kept falling down the last time I was in the office. It was a sign. So I spent $100 at good will and picked up these 3... Read more

  • Walk for the sake of walking.

    7/16/2016 4:29:19 PM, by MLIEN913

    As hot as it was today I decided to walk as I had planned. It was almost too easy to work up a sweat. I started by walking the dog. She wasn't thrilled with the heat so we cut it short. Then I went back out alone to walk off tension headache. Later my hubby and I went to look at the site for our nex... Read more

  • Unpretty

    7/15/2016 12:42:10 PM, by JENSTRESS

    Since I've started to realize where some of my binges seem to come from (thinking I'm fat) I've really started to delve into my feelings. WHEN did I start REALLY feeling fat. Not the skinny girl in high school who would say it and wonder, but not be sure if she was fat or not. In High School I wa... Read more

  • Getting back on track

    7/15/2016 12:30:06 PM, by MLIEN913

    After a week of pain and wobbly walking I feel well enough to get back on track with workouts. I'll still take it a little slower and lighter than I really want to do but I'm upping the ante. I've increased the tension on the bike to level 6 again. Walking is a little easier too but I don't want to ... Read more

  • Picked up a new bracelet on aliexpress and thinking about hunger

    7/14/2016 7:44:42 PM, by SSMITH762

    I was thinking about hunger today. Mostly because yesterday I was so hungry that i ate almost all my calorie allotment. 1453. Typically I eat a lot closer to 1100. And it was because I was hungry all day. I try to listen to my body and easy when I'm actually hungry, but yesterday I was eating con... Read more

  • Hunger... games

    7/14/2016 9:27:06 AM, by JENSTRESS

    So, I have a fitbit. I've talked about it. The calorie estimation on the fit bit and the SP estimator don't entirely mesh. I don't sync it, because I feel like by tracking on spark and following the fit, I do a good job of finding a healthy balance. However, sometimes I get hungry. Like WAY... Read more

    It really was a shock to me. Here I am, healthy, strong, really enjoying how I look most of the time, and honestly, pleased with my hard work, when BAM! I felt fat. If you read my last few blogs you can figure out why, but I'm still working through it all. I felt fat because my s... Read more

  • Challenging day

    7/13/2016 11:01:55 AM, by MLIEN913

    Today is going to be a bumpy ride. I'm having a flare up with my legs and walking, sitting, standing, everything hurts. I refuse to let that stop me completely though. I'll ride the bike as much as I can and lift lighter weights to maintain upper body strength. Sadly the meds that help with the pai... Read more

    7/12/2016 3:40:02 PM, by MLIEN913

    Today I'm just not feeling it. My body is sore from moving furniture and cleaning up after the windows went in. My headaches have been nagging me again too. I don't have the oomph to do anything more than walk. I've tried to hop on the bike at least to break the monotony. ... Read more

    7/12/2016 1:51:46 PM, by STACYDICK1981

    Last night a couple friends and I went walking I told myself it would be OK to walk just two miles. We did the two miles and I was like lets go for one more. Then one friend left and we decided just one more and we would be done. My friend checked her Fitbit after the 4mile and she had 600 steps to ... Read more

    7/11/2016 10:00:49 AM, by MLIEN913

    I started off with my morning walk with the dog. When I got back I had to finish clearing around the windows being replaced. It turned out nearly as bad as clearing out for a move. I'm amazed by the crap my husband had piled into corners. I always thought I was the hoarder in the family. Once the... Read more

    7/11/2016 8:55:54 AM, by JENSTRESS

    I believe I figured out what hit me for my back slide. I was pretty stoked at how I rebounded, but I need to get to the root of things so that I can hopefully stop them from happening. I was feeling awesome about myself, and then we went on vacation. My family is thin. And it sucks. ... Read more

    7/10/2016 7:27:39 PM, by MLIEN913

    Somehow I never logged on yesterday. That wrecked my log in streak, water streak and food streak. I can't believe that I forgot to log in. Today I'm trying to make up for lost initiative. I've also not eaten as I had planned. I gave in and ate a sandwich from Jersey Mike's sub shop. Delicious but ... Read more

    And I'm kind of relieved. I really screwed up. I was on point at the start of my vacation. I worked out, ate right, did great. The last day however, I broke all of my rules. I bought junk food at every gas station to snack on in the car, which led to eating more and more junk all week. I just ... Read more

    My stomach has gone haywire. I was able to eat this morning but I've been so nauseated since. It almost feels like food poisoning but much milder. At least I'm getting fluids in. I also did a lot of walking today so exercise is done. Hope tomorrow is better.... Read more

    According to my crappie pedometer I've only walked about 7k steps even though I walked for 4hrs straight. Oh well. At least I had fun at Celtic Fling.

    6/24/2016 12:13:55 PM, by MLIEN913

    I find myself reading other bloggers and thinking,"gee that sounds like me" or giving a pep talk in reply.
