I am so surprised by my own behavior. I so know what I want to do and I just am having a hard time getting back to living my healthy lifestyle. It's extremely frustrating and I feel my confidence slipping a little more each day. A few months ago... Read more
baby steps back
Tuesday, December 16, 2014      1 comments

I'm not totally sure what is going on. There was a time only a few weeks ago I swore I'd never mistreat myself the way I had in the past. I was feeling so good and on top of it even through some stressors. The whole thing has gone to pot and I c... Read more

I'm not going to lie it's been pretty junkie around here for the last few months. I've had some adult kid issues of the "I'm in my twenties and have decided all of my problems are due not to my decisions but to your bad mothering!" variety. Joy.... Read more

Well I was doing oh so great and feeling invincible these last few months and then decided to set some pretty ambitious goals to meet by my 40th birthday which is now less than a month away. I won't be meeting those goals. I have to say I... Read more

I finally got past the 190's which is a bit of a relief because it's WAAAYYYYYY too close to the threshold (200) . The mental barriers are the hardest to get through. I'm still not able to exercise so that's a bummer but I am also happy... Read more

Baptism
Thursday, July 24, 2014      6 comments

I thought I'd share some pics from last weekend with my sparkbuddies. On the health side, I made some great decisions on the day of the baptism but then the next day I helped a friend pack up and clean for her move to Wisconsin and also to... Read more
Uncomfortable
Thursday, July 10, 2014      9 comments

As I go along, I ponder throughout the day why I want to reach for food (or yummy drink) when I am already nourished and hydrated. We all know the deal about hiding from our feelings and eating when we are bored etc... I have found that along wi... Read more
30 lbs gone
Tuesday, July 01, 2014      3 comments

I said I would wait until I maintained my weight for a whole week before awarding myself the 30lb lost goodie but I thought it would be useful to work on a progress pic blog. I LOVE when others post their pics along the way it helps a visual per... Read more

So thanks to a pretty focused and Sparkwonderful pregnancy, I was able to enter Onederland this week. WOOO HOOO! Okay but I've been here before. Two years ago to be exact and I didn't exactly blow past the 190's and slowly ended solidly back in ... Read more

Tuesday, June 03, 2014      2 comments

Two weeks left until baby's arrival and I am still off of exercise although truthfully, I don't think I'd be exercising at this point anyway. It has become clear to me that this unraveling of my tangled up attitudes about exercise/eating healthy... Read more

Hi Everyone, It's been a few weeks and here is what's going on. I've had some good scans and some okay scans. Hopefully the baby's irregular heartbeat will resolve at birth 99.99% do. By avoiding exercise and increasing water I have raise... Read more

I am going on two weeks of being some kind of over every day on my calories. I am doing what I hate which is living re-actively instead of pro-actively. Even when I plan my meals I do some re-arranging the next day and it all goes to pot. I am s... Read more
