    President Trump just announced that the nation's lockdown will continue until April 30th, so it looks like I most likely won't return to work until May. Wow! I have mixed feelings about this, but I'm mainly worried about my mom not being paid until this is all over (she was just paid for March, th... Read more

    3/29/2020 11:53:03 AM, by LISAMARIE2015

    Going to watch church online in a bit. I also had DH get some stuff so I could make another lasagne to freeze into individual servings. The last one was so great that way but I only had 3 servings. Now that I know it freezes like that, want to do another one. I just froze individual servings in a z... Read more

    Well yesterday on my weigh in day I hadn’t lost anything by .2 so today I redid and lost some more! Goal to get into 150s by April (how on earth is it almost April??!!) can happen if I work hard and don’t get off track. If not, soon enough I know. Not gonna let not meeting goals get me down this ti... Read more

    I called my dentist this morning, and to my (pleasant) shock, someone actually picked up! :) The receptionist said that they were only there today to cancel next week's appointments (they are going to be closed for a while due to COVID-19). I told her how I've been having toothaches, and she asked ... Read more

    Well I have been MIA from here for about a month. I was hit was a double ear infection and then this stupid COVID-19 hit.

    Thankful we got yard mowed after the two weeks of rain because now it’s raining again 😩😩 I was so hoping to have yard dry up so we could mow again because it was so bad had to mow higher even. Ugh. Our stupid yard takes a week to dry. We’ve put more French drains and added weeping willows. Wish we... Read more

    3/27/2020 10:42:50 AM, by TERRISTREK

    What's on the agenda for this weekend? More spring cleaning, house projects and entertaining the kids. Nothing much else to do these days. Yesterday we got an email that schools will be closed until May 1st. I have a feeling they won't be going back at all. We'll be picking up a Chromebook so... Read more

    This isn’t me yet but it may be by the time this ends lol. Just trying to focus on positive now! Things going well. I’m definitely not sick I don’t think.

  • Just Another Day in Paradise

    3/26/2020 11:32:54 AM, by TERRISTREK

    I took yesterday off to break up the "boring" routine of me working at home and trying to keep my 5 year old busy. We did a grocery pick up at the store... I feel like they should mandate the online ordering and pick up or delivery option a little more. It was so nice not having to go into the ... Read more

  • Are we being ungrateful?

    3/26/2020 7:14:51 AM, by KAVDEO

    At this moment we are all locked down and in self isolation at home due to Corona virus. Social media is flooded with messages on how they are bored, how they are killing time, how frustrated they are. How restrictive life has become. I can't help but think aren't we being ungrateful. we are h... Read more

  • Week 12

    3/25/2020 7:34:44 PM, by PAIGE2017

    Not much to say here....just social distancing and homeschooling my kids this past week. Thankful for spring break but truthfully, I think it is easier being stuck at home when they have school work to occupy part of the day. My mom and her husband are still planning to come visit us this wee... Read more

    3/25/2020 1:05:23 PM, by LISAMARIE2015

    I know I have posted some funny pics and things about social distancing because I still have to keep my sense of humor but I also want to post the serious side of this pandemic. Today I have seen at least 4 people on my fb that have friends in the hospital or that have died from covid. I know so ... Read more

    3/25/2020 1:03:44 PM, by ONEVOICE128

    Today, my Mom was coming home from a Target run. She was carrying a bunch of stuff, and she lost her balance, and fell just outside our apartment. :'( I was inside, but could hear her scream, so I ran to her, and asked if she was okay. But my dad just yelled at her, saying it was her fault for car... Read more

    Whether or not my mom will paid during the COVID-19 crisis remains to be seen. My sister is at least paying her right now to watch my baby niece, as her preschool is closed, but my sister's work hours are being cut too (she works in home health as an occupational therapist), so even that side incom...

    3/24/2020 3:22:40 PM, by LISAMARIE2015

    I’m feeling way better today again. Thank goodness! Hopefully just lack of sleep making me feel off. I took Benadryl last night which I hate doing but it’s the only thing that helps. Melatonin doesn’t help and I even my oils don’t help much with sleep. Letting Lucy swim in the pool but the boys s... Read more

    Day 1 of officially homeschooling has commenced. DH took over because he is crazy that way lol. I am a certified teacher but he is so anal that I will probably just let him do his own thing.

    In case any of you are curious, I did go out with my mom yesterday. We went to Target, and of course all the toilet paper, paper towels, water bottles, etc. were gone. We got a few things, which I paid for (except for the 2 gift cards my mom got for my sister's birthday next month). Then we got t... Read more

    On Thursday at 11:15 am, my court finally closed, and us workers were allowed to go home. The judges and judicial law clerks will be working from home, but management didn't have enough government laptops for the rest of us, so we will just be resting (can't complain!).

    This sign made me laugh. Today I finished another book, did some more laundry and about to vacuum. I should mop too but man I hate mopping. I will do ab video again and going to make myself go out in cold (cold for me! 50 degrees) to do something outside. Our yard is sooooo muddy from all the rain. ... Read more

  • I NEED people

    3/20/2020 7:15:15 PM, by CHRISBEM

    So...I keep hearing that the weight loss journey must begin with oneself. However, at least today, I am really feeling how necessary it is to have a support system in place. To begin, I have depression. I was officially diagnosed about 13 years ago, but based on my systems, I believe I have... Read more

  • 3/20/20 - Friday. Updated measurements.

    3/20/2020 10:09:43 AM, by LISAMARIE2015

    It’s so weird how many inches 10lbs is! I also never know how to measure my waist because my measurements are always WAY bigger than my jean waist? I take them at the smallest part of my waist and then right where my belly is. Most of my weight, obviously, is in my belly but glad to get my hips s... Read more

    3/19/2020 10:48:59 AM, by TERRISTREK

    This morning I decided to try something new. I woke up feeling find of stiff so I found a youtube video that was for beginners. It took me through some "easy" stretches, which felt really good. I say "easy" because I'm a total newbie to yoga and some of them were a little hard for me but hard in ... Read more

    Now that everyone is home bound or should I say Coronaed at home the social media and WhatsApp messages are flooded with how everyone is bored or how they are spending their time in self quarantine! Isn't it funny? Normally we crib about not having any time to pursue our interest due to work a... Read more

  • New Routine, New Habits

    3/18/2020 11:07:52 AM, by TERRISTREK

    I've found myself with a lot of extra time on my hands to take care of life. Cutting an almost 2 hour commute (there and back) out of my day is really helping with that! I also save time by not have to do my hair and make up every day! Add to the fact I get to do chores and take long walks on my br... Read more

    I MADE MY GOAL!!! I didn't really do anything different this week food wise but I definitely had more than my normal 2 power days thanks to all the grocery shopping and running myself ragged trying to work full time from home while homeschooling my 8th, 3rd and 1st graders. We are so fortunate ... Read more

    For us, we had spring break last week so I am not counting those days as part of our shut down because really, we wouldn't have gone out anyway lol.

    I started working from home yesterday. Not because of the virus, it's because our office is being remodeled. So far, I'm enjoying the freedom and extra time working at home gives me. My reminder that it's weigh in day popped up on my phone so I decided to go check in since the scale is right ... Read more

    Good morning from the middle of the US. Every day I teach myself to think differently about my body and my food choices. It's not about what I can't eat, it's about what I can eat. It's not about eating just to eat, it's eating for fuel. It's not about just losing weight, it's ... Read more

    January rolls around and we all jump on the bandwagon of goals and hopes and dreams we set for ourselves for the year. 100% of us who are uncomfortable with our body or our weight set some kind of health or weight loss goals.

    Well...I'm disappointed today. I shouldn't be because a loss is a loss but I was really hoping for more than 0.2 pounds this week. This will almost make my first goal unobtainable. I have lost 1.8 pounds in a week before but that's not common. I was really hoping to be under 190 by next Friday t... Read more

    Tired - overwhelmed - not enough time in the day Really need to follow my mantra DWYSYWD (do you what you say you will do). Didn’t record any food yesterday, didn’t exercise yesterday, didn’t play my stupid fashion game. It’s the beginning of March, which is the worst month for teachers, and I’m al... Read more

    1. Create an Editorial Calendar for Instagram When we write content, we labor over ideas, delivery, and optimization. It should be no different when we share photos and videos on a business or brand’s Instagram account. Take the time to brainstorm clever content ideas that align with sea... Read more

    and not much has changed w/me. Still overweight. Still not trying to do much about it. Waiting for the lightening bolt of motivation to hit me to get me in gear. But it doesn't seem like that is going to happen so I have to just do it. Three simple words. Just. Do. It. I can do it. I just hav... Read more

  • March 3, 2020 - Blood Results

    3/3/2020 8:44:51 AM, by LISAMARIE2015

    Good and bad news is that my blood test shows I am really low on ferritin but not anemic. Oddly my actual iron levels are fine, very weird how it all works. Anyways ferritin has to be 50 and a minimum for hair growth and mine is only 14 😱😢 so the good news is we know why my hair has gotten super d... Read more

  • Sore from my leg and cardio

    3/3/2020 8:04:45 AM, by SIRABE10368

    Yesterday’s workout was great! I’m still a little sore from it. I had to run out and get more protein and collagen as well. I found this delicious protein called isopure and it’s not milky and tastes really good. The collagen I went for a flavor this time and ugh gross. I’ll have to choke it down... Read more

    March is full of a lot of Birthday's, including mine! Still not sure what I want to do. I did take the day off so I need to figure something out! The food I bought from Costco is serving me well. The only grocery shopping I needed to do over the weekend was buy some fruit and veggies for the we... Read more

    It has been a LOOOONNG time since I've been on this site. I was doing pretty well. I'd cut down on meal sizes, stopped eating after 8 pm and was putting in 2 hours of Zumba/Strong a week. I was starting to lose weight and feel healthier. THEN I GOT PREGNANT. Everything went out the window accept Zum... Read more

    Well its been 9 years since my last entry! Have I met my weight goal no. Are my little babies bigger? yes, they are. Well, in the last 9 yrs I have run my first half marathon. Had "friends" betray me with really harsh words that made me realize they didn't care if I lived or died. I've become ... Read more

    3/2/2020 8:56:48 AM, by LISAMARIE2015

    Made me laugh. Asking Tony Hawk if he’s any good at skate boarding 🤣 that would probably be something I would do. I was at a hotel once when Miami Heat was there and everyone was so excited to see Lebron James. Meanwhile I had to google him to see what he looked like 😂 I knew the name but would ha... Read more

    I wanted to write some ideas that came to me after reading a couple articles on here: - I need to ask myself why do i want to lose weight, and focus on my motivations. - I notice that i fall off track when I am bored. Nothing like a sugar rush, right? Or a big bag of chips to feel alive... Read more

    It snowed last night. We've been lucky to get away with a mild winter, even though it was supposed to be a horrible one. I don't mind the snow, today. It's pretty from this side of my kitchen window and it will mostly be melted by the night. And it's not stuck to the roads. It's March 1st! Thi... Read more

  • Splinter Out - It is March!

    3/1/2020 10:49:20 AM, by LISAMARIE2015

    It took my husband over an hour to get that splinter behind my nail bed (see blog pic from yesterday) out 😩 and that was after he numbed it with 3 shots because numbing junk doesn’t work well on me. He had to basically finally rip part of the nail off on that side to get it because it was so lodged... Read more

    I’m such a baby. Got this splinter at my mom’s today. It is all the way down in nail bed and hurts like crazy. I know why nail beds are used when torturing people. I have tried soaking it in several things (epsom salt, on guard, rubbing alcohol, hydrogen peroxide...) and cut the nail as short as I c... Read more
