For some reason I am motivated today. I have been tracking my food, making conscious choices, wanting to re-start a workout plan, get things done.... I am looking forward to feeling better about my personal input toward my health and well being.... Read more

Missing in action lately. Too busy, too broke, too tired... too lazy. I could give my usual million excuses. I really need to find the motivation to get started.... Read more
Just do it!

I have been trying to check back in to SP to increase my motivation, I'm having such a hard time these days finding any oomph to do anything outside of the necessary. I took a FOUR hour nap today and I'm still tired! I have work to do tonight, a... Read more
Maintaining a positive attitude
Monday, March 14, 2011      1 comments

It has become clear that despite the fact I tend to be mostly positive, one small thing can flip me pretty easily.... so I guess my positivity is fragile. Now that I am recognizing this, I am working very hard to not allow the small things (or e... Read more
10 minutes a day to gain momentum...

I'm trying something new. Accepting that 10 min of exercise is ok for now, as long as I do that at least one time per day. Rock that momentum. That's what I lack, so let's see how this goes.... Read more

I have been working toward setting up my goals, stopping the excuses, and of course, in my usual messed up way of preparing to "get it together," I have been eating and drinking my way through the past few days. I realize that I have been doing ... Read more
New year, new.....?

I decided that I should return to Spark People, as it did motivate me to come on here regularly. Joined Weight Watchers in October and have been going up and down in weight, still not many pounds off from where I started. Having trouble getting ... Read more
Not sure what to say, but...

...but I have GOT to get it together. I started out great. Lost momentum early. The only change right now is that I keep trying to stay on track. Even though am doing a horrible job, I haven't given up entirely. THAT is improvement. Sad as it i... Read more
Paying attention to the steps forward...

I keep trying to change my mindset. This week I am going to pay attention to the steps I make in the right direction, and stop comparing the lack of progress because of the several steps back that happen along the way. I have tracked my food so ... Read more
How time flies...
Tuesday, October 19, 2010      0 comments

I have been struggling for over a month, which seems really surprising to me (but shouldn't). Time just flies by... no wonder it is so hard to lose the weight, when an entire month can go by without really exercising and not tracking calories. S... Read more
Not quite....

OK so I didn't totally blow it today but let's just say I'm not quite back on track. Tomorrow is yet another day. My hubby and I are both planning to have a positive and healthy (health-full) weekend.... Read more

This is not a new thing for me, but perhaps what is new is the time it takes me to recognize my derailment. I seem to not just fall off the track, but take down a whole city in my crash and burn (the whole city being all me). I went from a slip ... Read more
I hate that I am feeling irritated
Friday, September 10, 2010      1 comments

Well, one thing's for sure - when I am irritated, I want to eat or drink bad things. I am trying to convince myself that I will be even MORE irritated if I stray from my week of healthy habits. I may need to go to bed early just to remove myself... Read more
Recognizing true progress
Thursday, September 09, 2010      1 comments

Today I was so tired and sick of work, wanting to just go buy wine, or just go home and sleep. I entered some info on SP and told myself, I had to go to the gym or I would feel bad about it later. Thankfully I have my bag packed in the car, read... Read more
