Feeling Better

It is really amazing how your really are what you eat. Now that I've been eating healthy for a week and only eating good things the "old me" enjoyed, I feel like I have a much clearer head, more energy and just an overall better mindset.

I haven't been counting points this week, but back to 3 small meals, 2 snacks...all clean eating/non-processed foods. I still have to deal with the coffee vice...but I know I will be able to once again rid my life of it and artificial sweeteners.

I look forward to Monday my official weigh in day...I've already peaked at the scale this week and I think I'm in for a nice number. It's amazing the fast damage eating a tub of cookie a day can do. Just alone stopping that horrible habit I'm saving myself a whooping 3,360 calories a day!

Honesty is a big word for me this year....

I have been in a rut and have put on far too much weight. I know where it is coming from...there have been alot of emotional stresses in my world and I regressed to old bad comfortable habits.

Yesterday was a new day, I bought all my old favorites from when I was in a far better place. I am excited to resume my eating plan back when I was happier and mentally stable.

I vow to be a FAR BETTER me this year...this is no resolution, this is a lifestyle.

Most Current Photo of Me

as you can see - it's all over my face. I'm not one of those who can just send head shot & hide their gains. My face widens & my cheeks get bigger than ever. I want my thin(er) face back.

I'm a slacker...

Wow - months have pasted and I have completely lost my way. Need to get back to me eating healthy ASAP. I have gained 30lbs after loosening up too much. I feel trapped in this body again - not able to do things I loved just a few short months ago. I must make this change forever...

This is my most recent photo. A head shot taken for my position as an instructor at a local scrapbooking store. Not huge by any means...but certainly not that thin neck and collarbones I'd gown to love so much. This blog is for me to be honest and I plan to be.

I'm starting over tomorrow morning...I have to to live the life I so desperatly need to live

Hum Drum

Hey, just back to the hum-drum days of the school year. Both kids gone all day, sometimes all night with friends or activities. I'm doing ok. I gained about 10 over the summer...but I've leveled out and maintained since that. I place to get back and "hit it hard" on eating right. I've done much better this week.

I was tempted by a few treats...
my sweet daughters brought me cupcakes for my birthday today. No worries I only had one and they are gone, so no leftover temptations!

Dark Days

I haven't posted in quite awhile, got into a tail spin (not was depression).
I had to crash and burn before I could see the light and find me direction for my life.
God is good, but he had to completely tear me down for me to listen - I'm a hard head.

FOOD is good. I am on track - I did stray for a bit, but no major gain and it is coming off well now. Thanks to all of you!

Lazy Summer Days

Summer is kids are out of school.
Eating is still pretty good. Most days are spent at the local water park or Six Flags.
I'm not obsessing about the gym or water aerobics...I'm getting alot of daily exercise.
My only goal for summer is to maintain...and not gain.
I will get busy again in August and shed the last 30lbs.
Time is short...I'm enjoying my kids for the next 6 weeks!

May Revisited

May was a great month and a crummy month!

* May 4th I hit 100 lbs. lost....I did not lose anything more the rest of the month.

* I started and quit a job.

*Struggled to control my love for sugar...several occasions of eating some candy while living a sugar free lifestyle. Like a non-smoker just randomly going and getting a pack of cigarettes and smoking!!!

*Strayed from my flawless exercise routine...and now struggle to get my ass back there!

JUNE - will be much better, because I CHOOSE for it to me. No more of this floundering crap!
