So, I know what I want next. I wanted to walk a half-marathon & get that racing bib, and I trained for 3.5 months to get there. Now, I want those cool Before, During, and After photos. I want to have a pictorial diary of my success. I have b... Read more

since my last entry. About 5 months it looks like. I have been continuing the struggle with my weight. Spend a little time on MFP, but I'm back. I miss the community and resources that SparkPeople provides. They each have their own benefits... Read more

I'm reading Chalene johnson's PUSH. It's a fairly good read. She writes like she talks. Anyway, some of the things that have resonated with me so far: * Make a list of what you want to accomplish this year. This an exercise that i... Read more

It's a new year. We all get a do over...Yippee! Because I need one after the holidays. I wasn't a good girl at all. I (as always) am very optimistic about the upcoming year. I'm going to learn from the past and apply it to the present. ... Read more

Had a visit with my Psych on Friday. I happened to mention, off-handedly, the difficulty I'm having losing weight. He tells me, off-handedly, that it's probably the Lexapro or Abilify. Now, I've done some research. Lexapro causes increased ap... Read more

This was not a good week as far as staying on track goes. I ate whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted and tracked nothing (out of guilt). BUT, today I'm back on track. Logging my foods and made it to the gym. I've even been slacking on my cla... Read more

Wanted to go the the gym today. Planned to go to the gym today. But, I have been so exhausted on the weekends. I slept ALL DAY LONG and am ready to sleep some more. I am going to have to get my third workout in during the week, because doing... Read more

Went to my Extreme Makeover Class. We have a new instructor, she's patient and low-key. Completly different than my previous instruction who was high energy and humorous. But, I think I'm going to like Amanda. I think she'll help with my over... Read more

Another day of bad food choices. But, I have extra points to work with. Gotta hit the gym tomorrow to help work it off. I feel guilty about it, but not too guilty. I don't know what has happened this week. I think it has something to do with... Read more

Weigh-in yesterday, gained a pound. Not as frustrated as I thought I'd be. I didn't track well & it's that TOM. So, I gained a pound. I've been dealing with a lot of other issues that are a little more important lately. My depression has be... Read more
Disappointed or Happy? I can't decide

Well, I did my weigh-in this morning and lost 1 pound. I can't decide whether to be happy for the loss or disappointed at the size of the loss. I exercised this week & on Thursday I burned A LOT of calories. But, I did eat out on Friday (team... Read more
Mini-Goal #1 - Successful
Sunday, October 09, 2011      1 comments

Week 1 is in the books. I successfully avoided sweets for an entire week. It was hard at first, but got easier as the week progressed. I think I've decoupled salty and sweet. I just had a piece of candy to break the fast and I have to say I d... Read more

Don't worry, I'm not going to log every class. But, I'm just writing to report that I went back to the class and I survived. I can tell I'm going to be EXTREMELY sore tomorrow, but it'll be a good sore. I was last at almost every drill, but i... Read more
EXTREME Body Make Over
Wednesday, October 05, 2011      7 comments

OK, so I signed up for a series of classes called "Extreme Body Make Over". I don't know what I expected. I tend to lean a little towards the naive sometimes. But for future reference, when the word EXTREME is used, take it seriously. So... Read more
Maybe we should try again...

Wow! I've been away from SparkPeople for almost a year! Time flies. I'm still struggling with weight loss, mainly because I've taken a fair weather approach to it. But, I think I've found a way to get myself on track. I've devised some rule... Read more
