Need to vent to get in the right mind set
Thursday, June 11, 2009      2 comments

I've had a pretty rough week. Emotionally I've been a mess. All I want to do is curl up in a ball. Sleep would be nice. If I must stay awake, I just want to cram myself with rich, flavorful foods. The thing is, I have a goal. I have ... Read more
I did it!
Monday, June 08, 2009      3 comments

I had a great weekend! Finally. I'm hoping it will give me the push to get through the week. I stuck to my points, didn't go into my weekly points at all. And yesterday, I went for a 3 mile walk! I can't even remember the last time I did a ... Read more
Another Day, Another Week
Monday, May 18, 2009      2 comments

Welcome to a new week! Wash any mistakes from last week away, and let's start right! Last week I was over stressed. I let other people's incompetence bother me. This week, I will not do that. But I ate well, within my limit every day, e... Read more
A good day
Thursday, May 14, 2009      1 comments

A good day can make sure a difference in continued motivation. Yesterday, I did good. I stuck to my points. Ate good foods. Didn't let my stress or emotions get the best of me. Went for a walk. Danced some for the baby (baby laughs do my h... Read more
No really, I mean it this time...

My baby girl is now 1. Which means I don't have a whole lot of excuses. She's been weaned, so I don't have to worry about calories. Hubby healed well from his surgery, and returns to work on Monday. The birthday festivities for the baby girl... Read more
It's not working!
Friday, April 17, 2009      1 comments

Well, the engagement party is tomorrow. And I've gained weight. Cut back on calories - a lot, and even started being more active again. But I still have chest congestion which gets me out of breath fast (and occasionally pass out from lack of... Read more
Reebok Tip
Monday, April 13, 2009      2 comments

The Reebok tip today said "Carry more weight. At the store, use baskets and a little muscle, instead of relying on a shopping cart. Carry your own bags and unload the car yourself to build strength and independence". It's a good concept, but I'... Read more
11 Months
Tuesday, April 07, 2009      1 comments

Today my baby girl turned 11 months old. I can't believe it's been that long. What's worse - I weigh more now that I did when I was fully pregnant. It came down right away, but it's been creeping up. And I'm always at home and putting everyo... Read more
Here we go again
Thursday, April 02, 2009      1 comments

I'm making a solid effort. I even have a meal list (for a few days at least). Is it the "perfect" time - no. Does such a thing exist - yes, because I had one in 2007, before I got pregnant. Now I need to push the issue. The stress of taking... Read more
When is a good time?
Monday, March 16, 2009      1 comments

It's amazing the excuses I can find for not taking care of myself. I haven't been on here recently, at least not as actively as I should be. My weight has been all over the place over the last month and a half or so, and the last couple weeks ... Read more
Recovering
Wednesday, January 21, 2009      1 comments

Sometimes, everything just spins out of control. It shouldn't come as a surprise, but getting past it and moving on is hard. I had problems with depression since my thyroid started being problematic. So it doesn't come as a surprise that ... Read more
Daily Gratitudes
Thursday, January 08, 2009      0 comments

I am grateful to work in a job that makes me feel so very, very smart. Sometimes I want to yell, and pound on my desk, but when it comes down to it, I should take it as a compliment that people need my assistance with _everything_ that they do ... Read more
Who is this all for?
Wednesday, January 07, 2009      0 comments

One of the things I seem to be very good at forgetting, is that I'm trying to lose weight and be healthy for me. Not for anyone else. So when I "cheat" or give up, I'm hurting myself. It's helpful to be accountable to others, which is why I t... Read more
Water is so confusing!
Saturday, January 03, 2009      1 comments

I've noticed a lot of the team challenges involve drinking water. I love it, because I am notorious for not drinking anough and contantly feeling dehydrated. But there seems to be some confusion as to how much water we need to drink. I've see... Read more
Winter Blues
Friday, January 02, 2009      1 comments

I hate the winter. I love snow, I act like a 5 year old in it, but I hate winter. It's cold and dreary, and makes me not want to do anything. I crave hearty soups and stews, meat and potato type meals, rather than salads and fish. And my fav... Read more
