Ghoulish tale of a Saboteur!
Wednesday, October 31, 2012      4 comments

A month ago I found the strength to commit to a healthier way of life. Slowly slowy I began changing my diet and stratagizing a plan. Work outs with the trainer from Hell. I surprised myself and fared well. Each week I find myself getting st... Read more

bad day! But it is tracked and forgotten.

So, isn't it amazing that you can abuse your body for years, feed it poorly and not care a bit about what you shovel in your mouth? Then you start tracking and you watch everything you eat and if you have a bad couple of hours, you are ready t... Read more
Feelings about Week 3
Wednesday, October 24, 2012      4 comments

Week three was a crazy week for me. I started the week just feeling angry. I felt as if my daughter was sucking the life out of me. That everything was about her and I want this time to be selfish and about me now. When you turn 21 you shoul... Read more

Stepping on the Scale
Friday, October 12, 2012      2 comments

So, I told myself that I was only going to step on the scale once a week. Only at the gym. No beating myself up on the scale. Then our trainer gets talking to Amy and I about fluctuations on the scale. Really? Nope once a week not a daily ... Read more

Have you ever done a work out where your legs are junk the next day. You want to get up off your butt and the up movement kills. Taking steps, you think that your legs might give out? Well that is where I am today! Yes, I did those 140 B... Read more
Weigh day
Monday, October 08, 2012      3 comments

So today was a weigh day. I weighed in and I lost 4 lbs. Good first week. I know that next week I will be lucky to lose a lb so the trainer has given us the incentive of doing 140 burpees. If we do 140 burpees we get a 1 pound advantage next... Read more

Sunday, October 07, 2012      3 comments

I was in such a bad place a week ago. I had forgotten the way. I put my children and husband first for so long, that I was not taking care of me. I have been stressed about my baby going away to school. I worried about me closing my business... Read more

Changes changes changes
Friday, September 28, 2012      8 comments

So a lot has changed in 2012. I gained weight & I lost self esteem; funny how that always goes hand in hand. After 18 years I quit my successful day care before I lost my mind. I am now searching for a new job. My youngest went away to college... Read more
My stomach is in knots. Eating will not make it feel better.
Sunday, April 01, 2012      5 comments

I am not good with confrontation. I hate arguments. I like everything peaceful. When things can not be peaceful I tame my uneasiness with food. Not today. I will eat my planned meals. I will not over eat. I will drink more water if need ... Read more
