It's been awhile since my last blog.... I started going downhill again. But June has been a good month so far! I think I have finally got the sugar cravings out of my system. I have been tempted many times, but it is getting easier to say no. It... Read more

So one of the issues that has been causing me anxiety - which led me to overeating and just "not caring" about my health - is our finances. I made a big blunder this past year in our taxes and we ended up owing several thousand dollars this year... Read more

So I had a great day yesterday. I was right at 1100 calories. They were quality calories too. Protein and veggies. I didn't workout, but 200+ of those calories were from a delicious, generous, glass of Moscato. Today, I felt blah.... low on ener... Read more

Weighed myself this morning and I was 156.4. Not as bad as I thought, but still not good! I have had a good breakfast, good lunch, and have plans for a nice dinner that keeps me under my calories. The problem, though, is DH decided to have a gro... Read more

Did not do well today at all.... Over ate big time at lunch, then requested yogurt place for dessert where I piled on all the candy toppings. Came home and binged on crackers, granola bars, and cereal. I kept telling myself "it's Mothers Day"...... Read more

Whew, so my plan for this upcoming week has been successful. Yesterday at work, I stayed out of our breakroom all day and I did not even tempt myself. I heard it was delicious. I kept feeling like I had to be accountable here on SparkPeople so t... Read more

Well, I am back and unfortunately I have reached an all time mental/emotional "low" and a "high" in my weight. I'M EMBARRASSED! And that doesn't help with my emotional eating. I was at an all time low of 130 and looked and felt amazing! For the ... Read more

Thursday, June 05, 2014      6 comments

So it's happened twice this past week. I was referred to as "small". At CrossFit when we were doing box jumps one of the screws popped out, but it looked like I jumped on it too hard and "broke it". When I showed it to the trainer, I apolog... Read more
