Practicing boundaries
Saturday, June 25, 2011      5 comments

I mentioned earlier that I struggle with boundaries. This problem seems to be common for many people, especially women and Christians. I guess it would be surprising if I didn't have this problem! Anyway, I practiced a boundary today. It... Read more
Stress and the 100-day challenge
Friday, June 24, 2011      8 comments

FYI - this is a rambling blog, more of a free-flowing journal. I hope if you choose to read it, it's not too confusing or boring. Thanks! -Lisa I am tired all the time. I think I overdid it while training for my half marathon, which worr... Read more

I just got home yesterday from my best friend's. I had been there since Sunday to be with her during the viewing and funeral of her dad. We took a walk both Sunday and Monday evenings. Taking a walk is one of the stress busters that is sugges... Read more
Stress busting

I feel myself having a stress response. I am tired no matter how much I sleep. I am cranky. I have trouble staying asleep (and this is rarely a problem for me). I feel tenseness in my shoulders, and I feel lazy, lethargic, weak, unmotivated,... Read more
Midday report

Sticking to the plan so far! I made up a menu last night, which included a chicken breast sandwich for breakfast since that went so well yesterday. That kept me full until well after 11:00 a.m. I'm just now able to enjoy my fruit and veggie sn... Read more
My 'nother something new
Wednesday, June 15, 2011      2 comments

Today I am trying my coworker's 4-3-2-1 recipe for weight loss success (see yesterday's blog). I've stuck to the plan and been pretty much full all day. I'm done for the day and am not hungry, but am not really satisfied either. Breakfast... Read more
Another something new

So this guy at work has just moved to our building. We haven't seen him for a while, so it was obvious when we saw him that he's lost a lot of weight. He said he's down about 60 pounds since the first of the year (I'm down about 24, so not eve... Read more

I just did my home weigh-in for the week. I'm up 4.4 pounds since last Sunday! I don't think last night CiCi's trip helped me out any. I feel much better, but we had a deep dish pizza there. Plus, I fell off my sugar wagon and had a few (oh,... Read more
So Much For That Idea
Friday, June 10, 2011      5 comments

I was going to track everything I ate this week. I even told my SparkBuddy that was my one major goal for the week. Surely telling on myself would help me stick to it this time, right? Nah. I tracked breakfast lunch and the snacks I ate at w... Read more

Three miles!
Saturday, May 28, 2011      6 comments

I just did a 42-minute, three-mile in-home walking video. That leaves me 18 minutes shy of my 60 minute fitness goal for the day, but I think I'm OK with that. It's way more than I used to do and definitely more than I would have done without ... Read more
Today is a new day.
Friday, May 27, 2011      6 comments

Last night I said I was going to commit to returning to my sweets-free promise for the remainder of the 100-Day Challenge. My first battle with this came when I needed to eat something to take my antibiotic just a short time after I posted my b... Read more

(1) On my SparkPage, I promise blogging updates on my 100-day challenge. I owe it to you to admit where I am. I have avoided this because I am not proud of my sugar addiction. Because I am not above blaming and finger-pointing, I am happy to ... Read more

Weigh-in day report: Down another pound! I'm actually down two pounds from last week, but only one pound from two weeks ago. This brings me to a total of 21 pounds down since we started in January. WooHoo! Half marathon training report: ... Read more
