it's been a long time ... again
Monday, June 25, 2007      1 comments

seems like I'm suffering from a case of "been there, done that." I've suffered a huge setback with depression and my weight loss. It always seems to go hand-in-hand. Well, I've forced myself to take control of my health again. I really didn... Read more
It's Been a Long Time
Monday, April 09, 2007      2 comments

I haven't been active on SparkPeople since about the time I made my last blog entry here. While 3 months seems like a long time to be away, it really hasn't seemed all that long to me. I've been dealing with personal issues, marital issues, whic... Read more
not exactly the new year I was looking for
Tuesday, January 02, 2007      2 comments

I've been crying since Saturday. To say things are strained between my husband and myself would be an understatement. I'm trying to put my health before my emotions. It's so hard. I have swings between two extremes. Either I want to eat everythi... Read more
Exercise is the key - for me!
Friday, December 29, 2006      0 comments

I had time to exercise about an hour last night. It felt great. I've exercised 3 out of the past 4 days and it has done wonders for my overall well-being. I've gotten back that bounce to my step that I seem to have lost over the past month when ... Read more
Ready for the New Year!

I need to take the time to set some goals for myself in the new year. I still hate to think of them as "resolutions" though. It will be more like an action plan for 2007. Step One: Decide what my goals for the coming year will be. What do I... Read more
Common thread?
Wednesday, December 27, 2006      1 comments

You know, as I look back over my last couple of blog entries I see a common thread of guilt. Interesting. Not sure what to do with that fact just yet. Just trying to be observant. :o)... Read more
The Dangling Carrot

Everyone needs a plan. I went into Christmas with a clever plan in mind. Whenever anyone would ask me what I wanted for Christmas, I'd tell them a gift card to Kohl's. Now that Christmas has passed, I have a nice little supply of Kohl's gift car... Read more

Merry Christmas. My guilt and desire to be a "good daughter" made me call my father to wish him a merry Christmas. Having parents who divorced after I became an adult is a very strange thing. When I was little I adored my dad. As I got olde... Read more
I Never Walk Backwards

"I am a slow walker, but I never walk backwards." (Abraham Lincoln) I love it! I was just thinking along these lines earlier this morning. I started my weight loss journey on July 20 of this year. I've moved forward pretty much incident fre... Read more

I got my husband a gym membership for Christmas. It's a very nice gym and they even have spinning classes - something I've always wanted to try! I got a grand tour of the facilities when I signed him up. The equipment is top of the line and I wa... Read more
First Week Down

I've been with SparkPeople for one week now and I've had great results. I lost 1.8 pounds. I find that fantastic, considering that I didn't get to exercise much this past week. I hope to make my second week as successful. It's hard to hope for ... Read more
Darned Hershey Kisses

I know it's not the candy's fault. It's sitting there innocently enough on the front of the reception desk (my desk) in the office. Who put it there? Strangely enough - I did! What was I thinking? I could make up all sorts of excuses, but I thin... Read more
Dare to dream - and act upon those dreams!
Monday, December 18, 2006      0 comments

It's ironic that today's Healthy Reflection has to do with dreams and goals. I was just thinking about these things yesterday. I am in school all day Saturday and Sunday, attending classes to take my test to become a licensed real estate ag... Read more
Scatter Brained Day and HoliDAZE
Saturday, December 16, 2006      0 comments

It started with waking up at 4:15 this morning in a panic because my alarm clock didn't go off yet. Well, it wasn't set to go off until 4:3o a.m. Once I figured that one out, I figured I might as well just get up anyway. I left for school at 6 a... Read more
Fat is not a feeling
Friday, December 15, 2006      2 comments

Ever have one of those days when you wake up feeling "fat?" I had a revelation today, thanks to a friend who said that "fat is not a feeling." Huh, go figure! It has to go a lot deeper than just feeling "fat." What is making me feel "fat?" Well,... Read more
