Hanging in there vs. going strong
Tuesday, July 17, 2012 2 comments
I've been at this for less than two weeks. I've been going strong all along, but today I feel like I'm just hanging in there. I weighed myself this morning, even though I've told myself I'll only weigh once a week. I just can't resist that s... Read more

Ok, Sparkpeeps....I'm back again. I'm ready for some motivation and inspiration. I did WW for a few months, but kept dropping off, but still paying $18 a month. No more, I have to do this for myself and I don't need to pay anything or anyone.... Read more

I've noticed as the weeks have gone by that my pants have gotten looser, and it has felt good, but today, when I put my rain coat on, I was absolutely thrilled!! I haven't been able to fit in that thing for probably 4 years. Don't get me wrong... Read more

This week three of P90X was tough! My body just felt so worn out and not as strong. I did continue to make improvements in some areas, so I don't feel like it was a complete loss. Week 4 starts up on Sunday, I hope to see some weight loss this... Read more

Sunday night was the beginning of week three of P90X. I'm eating better than I ever have in my life, I'm working out FAR more than I ever have in my life. I feel great and I feel thinner. However, I've barely dropped any weight! I dropped a... Read more

So, I'm back at it again, full force this time. No half-a**ed attempts now. I am doing the full P90X program. While not following the diet regime to the letter, I'm following it as close as I can given my schedule, wallet etc. While I've onl... Read more

Last night was a prime example of why I need to learn to motivate MYSELF. I had a discouraging day at work, when I picked up the kids they were extremely needy and whiney and I had plans to get a lot of things done when I got home so I could ac... Read more

Why am I so pathetic?
Friday, December 04, 2009 3 comments
Seriously, why can't I even begin to stick to any weight loss program. I get so pumped up, but after two weeks, my motivation is as dead as a doornail. I just don't get it. How do I find the motivation within myself to stick with something? ... Read more
