Fighting a Craving
Monday, April 02, 2012      0 comments

I can think of nothing else but chocolate today! It is dragging me down because it keeps coming up in my thoughts as I try to go about all the work I have to do. Here is how not having money actually might help me! I maxed out my credit card o... Read more
Tired Saturday
Saturday, March 31, 2012      0 comments

I am pretty tired. I broke my coffee maker (my fault) and my microwave exploded (not my fault). I stayed up to research affordable replacements, but ended up paying so much I felt faint. My original coffee maker cost around $20; a comparable... Read more
The Woes of Being Short and Stout
Wednesday, March 28, 2012      1 comments

It would boost my self esteem immensely if for once in my life I can find dress slacks and workout pants that fit decently. I wear dresses and never slacks because I can't buy any anywhere. I work out in either baggy, hot sweatpants or exercis... Read more
Travel Without Spark?
Tuesday, March 27, 2012      2 comments

I am off to a positive start with filling my trackers every day. In May, June, July and August, and I will be doing a lot of traveling, mostly without Internet access. What can I do to keep in touch and keep my motivation up?... Read more
I Love Food and...

I intend to make food my lifelong friend instead of enemy. I personally am not one of those people who think of food as fuel, like gasoline for a car. Food has such strong ties to my mother and father to me. They recently passed away, and I h... Read more
Sick and Weak

Still have the second bad cold within weeks. I barely made it through a minimum workout at the gym. I have loads of work and responsibilities that are piling up too; very hard to keep moving.... Read more
sick again!

I just got over a nasty virus that is doing the rounds here (disrupted my life for almost two weeks) and now I have the identical symptoms again. I hope this won't interfere with my fitness classes that I have started recently and love! The go... Read more
No sleep last night, but a weekend of big exercise
Saturday, March 03, 2012      1 comments

I was up most of the night because we had terrible storms and a power outage. It got very cold in the house. Saturdays and Sundays are big gym days for me because of my schedule. I did strength, cardio and stretching today. My brute spin/TRX ... Read more
(Sigh) I ate 213 calories over the Maximum
Thursday, March 01, 2012      1 comments

I did a lot of stress eating when I got home tonight. I am sure those calories will make it tougher to lose any weight in my first week, but I will just go to bed and start anew tomorrow. Lots of stress right now and I am tired; the cure reall... Read more
family support and non-support
Wednesday, February 29, 2012      2 comments

I had a loving mom who battled weight issues herself; she never criticized me or pushed weight loss things on me (she really didn't have to, I was miserable being one of only three girls in my entire elementary school that was overweight!). I h... Read more
I need to not buy some foods

My muscle aches from TRX and spinning have finally abated after three days. I finished off the entire (mercifully small) carton of chocolate cream cheese today. I could not think of anything else all day until it was all eaten over the course ... Read more
I can barely walk today...

I went to a free TRX class last night. I thought it was amazing!!! I hurt so much this morning from moves I have never done that I can barely walk. But it was so much fun and I am so sad I cannot afford to sign up for lessons. But what a high... Read more
