    I didn't log everything yesterday because of system issues. The app had errors and my computer was slow. At least I stayed within limits. Today I'm doing fairly well on food and water intake. I'm coughing really badly so food isn't that interesting. Still trying to get workouts done but doing light... Read more

  • The reality....The Time frame

    3/19/2017 8:19:52 PM, by ~*~SPUNKI~*~

    The reality of the amount of time it will take me to lose this weight, I won't lie, is at times, overwhelming. I know the end will be worth it, I know I will have to work: Every Single. Day to get there. I'm okay with that. But the time frame? Not so impressive or even encouraging. I know th... Read more

    I had another attack last night of the ear inflammation so I took my meds. This morning I was so groggy I nearly fell down the stairs. Short walk with the dog then 4.5 hrs of sleeping.

  • Day 16 and 17 month 3 of reboot

    3/17/2017 3:03:41 PM, by MLIEN913

    I forgot to blog yesterday. There really wasn't much going on. Walking the dog post winter storm is difficult. Too many neighbors didn't clear their sidewalk or did a piss-poor job of it. I lost count of the times I slid or tripped. Having very energetic dog doesn't help. This morning she behaved ... Read more

    3/17/2017 8:37:45 AM, by ~*~SPUNKI~*~

Yet, in reality, I am not. I am not fine, I am not skinny, and I am not anywhere near a "normal" weight. This journe... Read more

    How did I miss pi day yesterday? I'm such a geek that I hang my head for missing it. Today being the Ides of March didn't sneak past me though. I guess I have too much on my mind. I'm not exercising like I should and I'm not eating as well as I should. The blame is all mine. I can't even pretend an... Read more

    I have these bushes in front of my house. Right in front of the house. And they're ugly. Seriously ugly. I've let them get overgrown and haven't been taking care of them. Mostly because they're ugly and I don't like them. So today, I started to cut them down and start digging them up. Some of ... Read more

    Well, February is over. I made no progress in my journey. Sometimes I'm not sure if opening up about my goals or hiding my goals is better for me. I need to be held accountable but when I share my goals with others I seem to fall short. Maybe I like to keep my goals to myself so that when other com... Read more
