A New Week A New Chance
Monday, March 29, 2010      4 comments

Last week was great. I stayed within my calorie range all week, exercised almost everyday, drank my water, and lost five pounds. I don't think I can top the weight loss this week but I can stay on my program. This week may not be as big in th... Read more

Sunday, March 28, 2010      6 comments

Is this really me? Am I really doing this? I am in shock. Today I went shopping. I had been putting it off but when I got up I put on a pair of black capri pants I had bought last summer. They were a size 22 and were falling off. My pedome... Read more

I woke up late this morning and was feeling lazy. My first thought was to send Scott to get breakfast tacos but I knew that would be a big mistake. I needed some motivation so I stepped on the scales. I knew I had lost one pound and figured it... Read more

I know you have this whole "I'm not fair" thing going but could you please cut me a little slack? All I am asking for is a week where I do not have unexpected complications pop up (staying late at work to have birthday cake with a volunteer and... Read more
The Junk Food Weight
Tuesday, March 23, 2010      2 comments

I spent two weeks not tracking my food and not eating as well as I should. I drank almost nothing but Diet Coke and even had a hamburger and french fries at one point. I managed to gain two pounds. During this time I felt horrible. I was tir... Read more

Yesterday it was too cool to go to the beach like we had planned. It was right at 70 degrees where I live so it would have been about 65 on South Padre Island. The kids didn't want to go if they could not get in the water so we decided to go t... Read more

I seem to be very easily distracted lately. There is a lot going on but wow. Yesterday I bumbled around all day running into things and dropping everything my hands touched. I forgot to do things that were important, like reminding a voluntee... Read more
Another Monday

The weekend was pretty good and I did not do much that was actually constructive. My youngest daughter would not clean her room like she was told so we did not go to a movie on Saturday. We bought groceries, which I hate doing, and I watch tel... Read more
