Get up at the crack of dawn (3:45-4:30) and have a healthy 300-400 calorie breakfast of something whole wheat and some turkey bacon for protein. Go to the gym and have an amazing 60-90 min workout and feel like I am on top of the world. ... Read more
I'll never be a runner

I guess I should never say never, but it's looking more and more like I will never be a runner. When I first began this journey, I had hopes and dreams of being able to run eventually, like once I was down 30-40+ pounds. I envisioned myself wor... Read more

I feel like I am going down the road of negative self talk again and I am going to publicly chastise myself for doing so. When I shower and get dressed in the mornings it has been hard for me to really see the 40+ lb loss on my body. I mean, I s... Read more

First, my son who whined about having to walk 10 min. to the busstop this morning ended up getting sick at school. So I had to go get him and now get the rest of the day off work to take care of him and hang out on SparkPeople! Cool! (I am sorry... Read more

Several years ago I went to see a PA about my low back pain. My hubby was military working in the hospital and he got me an appointment with this PA that he worked with on a short notice. This PA proceeded to lecture me about my weight (I was 18... Read more

This blog is just a big huge vent of me getting things off my chest. I am feeling the anxiety rise and the need for comfort food. I need to just write it out and look at it from an objective point of view. Issue #1: First thing this morning... Read more

My back has gone out on me. The same way it did 5 months and 43+ lbs ago when I decided once and for all that I was sick and tired of the pain and made a commitment to lose the weight that I knew was aggravating it. It is a low back, paralyzing ... Read more
I'm a Streaker
Monday, January 04, 2010      3 comments

I have been loving reading The Spark book. In a way I feel almost like a kindred spirit with Chris. The things he says in there just make so much sense and really reasonate with me. One of which is his "streak"ing. I do not like breaking a strea... Read more
