My husband graduated from college last Thursday! House guests are finally gone. I am so glad we are in the house now for when people come to visit. I am sort of proud of myself for making good decisions regarding food while we were so bu... Read more

Friday, January 29, 2010      2 comments

All this time home sick has given me some time to think and reflect on my reading. I am reading this book really slow, but only because I want to savor it and I don't want it to end. Chapter 2 is about goal setting. So, I want to think ... Read more

Some days my eating is so out of control. When I get there, to that place of binging and gorging myself, I know what I am doing is not right. I know all the good reasons I shouldn't. I can think of my goals. I can tell myself no. And ... Read more

Personal Quickfire Challenge 1/7 Yesterday I finally found a spot in my house where I can do jumping jacks without breaking things (I live on the 2nd floor and everything shakes when you jump in most places here). I tracked my calories! ... Read more

I need a spark or something. Last week I did not well, and usually I was very aware of it as it was happening. When I do poorly, I feel so gigantic. This leads into a spiral downward justifying future decisions. I mean I was up and down... Read more

I think I have finally reached a point of consistency. I have lost a few pounds (well I finally am back to where I started when I came to spark people however long ago that was), but it is so slow! I know slow and steady finishes eventually,... Read more

I am still not feeling all that great emotionally. On the upside, I am continuing to track food and go to the gym. Today I ran for 10 minutes straight! One more minute and I would have gone a mile! I don't think I have ever in my lif... Read more

Yesterday I was fuzzy and out of it all day. I don't know what was wrong with my mood. This means I didn't get anything done! I just laid around kinda mopey all day. I finally played some Wii golf with my husband, and movement helped. I t... Read more

So, we decided spur of the moment yesterday to go to San Diego to visit with friends for the holiday weekend. On one hand, I am very excited. I was getting depressed to spend another holiday in California by ourselves again. I guess I am jus... Read more

Yesterday and I sort of goofed and today I am paying for it. It started off good with a nice bowl of oatmeal. Then, I went out with the staff from my classroom for Chinese food. I did well there. I only ate about 1/2 cup of rice (white r... Read more

Wednesday, June 10, 2009      3 comments

I have started tracking my food again, but it has only been possible because my schedule has let up. The school year is ending tomorrow, and next week we begin summer school. Summer school is less hours per day and only 4 days per week. So, I... Read more
