rough day
Wednesday, September 10, 2008      3 comments

It's been a rough morning. Because of misunderstandings, miscommunications, etc., I didn't get to pack a lunch before I left for work and everything was rushed. I hate starting a day by rushing out the door! I got to work and it didn't get ... Read more

Saturday started out well. I watched what I ate, I logged in to SparkPeople and tracked my food and water, checked in with my teams. I even took the dog for a walk. What a great start to a weekend, right? Then something happened. I'm not su... Read more

So, in order to move forward, I need some goals. In order to want to improve, I need to feel good about myself where I'm at right now. I'm putting it all together and laying down some goals. I plan to journal here no less than once a d... Read more
finding that "right" frame

I've been "back" at SP for a week now. In that week I gained a pound. If I look at the gain alone, it would be quite discouraging. Instead I'm choosing to look at the progress that I made in that week. I stocked my kitchen with healthy food... Read more

I've been tracking my food today. I need to go to the store and get some healthy things I can pack for lunches and eat as snacks between meals. I've been pretty on top of things today, but I don't think my breakfast was big enough and I had Skit... Read more

It's been over a year since I last visited these pages and made a serious attempt at getting my personal health under control. I've gained back pretty much everything that I had lost in the past ... and then some. I am trying not to feel like a ... Read more

My morning has started out well. There was a little whining in the house from children who didn't want to get up to go to their father's house while I was at work. But we all overcame the grumpiness and got a great start to the day. The sun is s... Read more
Sunday thoughts

I'm feeling increasingly positive as each day passes. That's good. With positive emotions, it is so much easier to stay on track with my diet and exercise. In fact, I'm thinking about getting my bike out and going for a little ride. :)... Read more

I'm still plugging along. I'm getting nowhere fast. But at least I'm not gaining. I'm kind of holding my ground. I'll take that over a gain! I need to start exercising again. All I have to do is do it! What's so hard about that? I love to exerci... Read more

I am so hungry. I did it to myself. I really didn't expect to get this hungry today. It's not quite 11 a.m. this morning and I know if I eat lunch now, I'll be hungry this afternoon. Hummmm. I should have brought an extra snack for moments just ... Read more

Yesterday was a waste. I had no motivation. I couldn't get over the pizza and candy bar that I had for lunch. It got uglier once I got home. Fried chicken and Dairy Queen sound nutritious? Hmmm ... not really. Add to that a total lack of activit... Read more
an interesting lunch ... but I logged it!

So today for lunch I had half of a large milk chocolate bar and a little slice of Donato's pepperoni pizza (you know how they slice their pizza into little tiny rectangles instead of big triangle slices? I had one little rectangle). I know I'll ... Read more

I'm learning something about myself. I'm learning that I shouldn't let myself get over-tired and over-hungry at the same time. This leads to my night-time eating sprees that always end up being bad news! I can handle being hungry, bu... Read more

So I was at work this afternoon, wondering which healthy meal I was going to prepare for dinner when my oldest daughter called. My mom was going to take the kids out to Pizza Hut for dinner. Did I want to come with them? Decisions ... ... Read more
