So I havn't forgotten to post....just had a busy couple weeks and am getting around to it this morning.

I'm doing alright. Not great, but alright. I caught a show the other night but I didn't catch the name of it. It had a girl that was younger than me, but in the same boat that I am. She voiced some things so perfectly about how I feel I'm percieved and the issues I have with weight. First of all I know I'm a food addict. I said this before, but I'm just bringing it up again because that show got me thinking about it. Alcohol you can quit, smoking you can quit, drugs you can quit, but it's just not fair that I can't quit food. I wish I had the money and time to go to the very fancy Fitness Ridge....but I can' as Oprah says....I will forgive myself for the past and move forward with what I can do now.

So for the past two weeks....I havn't gotten alot of exercise in, but Monday I'm starting a few of the tips for weight loss I read in the 4 hour body book, and with the cold weather starting I can definatly do the "cold thereapy" when I go walking. Heather Roberts...(little shout out to ya there sista!) has also turned me on to the Non-runners guide to running a marathon, and I think I would like to try that.

I know this post has kinda been all over, but my mind is a little bit all over this morning. Healthy week to you all!!!

So inspired

Alright so I know it's been a few days, but I did pick a contestant to follow. Jennifer (39) is who I'm chosing, but thinking about it, the people I like never win so maybe I should pick someone I don't like so much.

I watched Biggest Loser on Saturday with the hubby and was so excited to keep going with this. I have ideas on how to get movin and like I told Heather, Kathy and Elisa all I need is the motivational soundtrack to play throughout my day and I'll be set!!

Weighing in tomorrow to see how I did....weekend did not do so great because we went out to dinner with Kyle's parents on Saturday and Sunday got home from church to make dinner and the meat that I was going to roast for dinner was rotten. FYI CHECK ALL MEAT FROM that store, but when it comes to meat they are REALLY hit and miss. (bought a pork roast on Tuesday, put it in the freezer then stuck it in the fridge Saturday to thaw it to cook on Sunday. Cut open the plastic and it smelled HORRIBLE....the meat had expired on the 15th...I bought expired meat!!)

Anyway.....I am so looking forward to tomorrow's Biggest Loser...and hopefully I will have lost something this week too!!

Pickin my Pony tonight

I will finally be able to sit down and watch Biggest Loser tonight and pick whom I will be competing watch for that tomorrow. Today was alright....didn't exercise today, but I will be getting up tomorrow to do that. My goal for next week is one consistent week of exercise. So we'll see what tomorrow brings!!!

Too much running

I had a lot to do today, so I didn't eat as well as I should have. I had about 1700 calories, but they weren't my best options. I did get a good walk in and some all in all not a bad day. Anyone interested...tomorrow night leaving from my house at 8:30 for a walk. Be there or be square!

Not too bad


Today could have gone really bad, but I'm here to report that I didn't fail today! Cooper woke up at 11 last night and screamed until 2:30. So Kyle and I both did not wake up at 6 as planned, but I did wake up at 7 and havn't really stopped moving since. I did not go for my walk tonight at 8:30, but I will make that up tomorrow night. I cleaned my entire house from top to bottom, and for breakfast I had shreaded wheat, for lunch I had a chicken sandwitch and for dinner salad and breadsticks. Not my best start, but it could have been so much worse! So here's hoping that Cooper lets me stick to my schedule....and for a better day tomorrow!!

Don't worry

I didn't forget to post last night. I havn't given up on this already, I was working on a cake and couldn't see straight so I just went to bed. I have to get some advice on how to handle holidays that are coming up. For those that were born yesterday, I LOVE LOVE to bake. This is the hardest time of the year for me. September brings fall and cooler weather, so that makes me want to make soup and tasty apple treats...then Halloween comes and I want to bake cookies and such....just after that it hits Thanksgiving and Christmas and I end up going crazy! While this fills my creative outlet it also leaves many treats sitting around the house, so I guess what I'm saying is I need a way to be able to fill the baking need, without packing on pounds. I don't want to ruin anyone elses healthy maybe I'll deliver them to strangers :)

So I'm getting ready for Monday, plans written out, workout plans in place and I'm going shopping to fill that fridge with things I can eat. Tip #1 for myself from myself, Do Something.
If I am sitting I will want to snack. Just be doing something.

The theme of this blog is help....and here's something I have a problem with. I will start out my week guns blazing. I'm counting calories....I'm exercising....I'm motivated. Then I hit Thursday on some weeks and I falter....then the rest of my week goes to pot. I figure I messed up, so I will just start again on Monday. So my goal is to make every day Monday.

I am taking the next three days to get ready. I will stock up the fridge and pantry with healthy options. I will have my notebook with me at all times to write down what I eat and what/how much exercise I do. I will have a plan!!

Love and Luck to all!!

One more thing!!

Feel free to post motivational quotes or videos. Exercise tips, healthy meal and snack options, or just ways that have helped you lose or keep weight off because every little bit will help me!


For those of you reading this that struggle with weight the way I do, it will not surprise you that I am starting this....yet again!!

Over a year ago I decided to make a change and I did....for about 15 days. So I am not going to say that this will be the last time I will start again, just that I am.

I decided to take a different route this time. I am not going to do this alone. I need help. I need people who will read the things that I am saying and comment on what I'm doing wrong or what I could do better. I need someone to tell me on the days that I struggle and want to devour everything in site that it probably isn't a good idea. I know this sounds needy, but lets face it....I AM! I obviously have not been able to do this on my own, and since I can't hire Bob or Jillian I am looking to my friends to help me out.

Here's how I'm going to start: Name my blog. I put the name as MY journey over a year ago and somehow it doesn't seem to fit what I'm doing. So Ladies, whoever comes up with the best name gets $5 from me!

Second: I need to be accountable to someone (hence a daily blog), but I need to know that someone, ANYONE is reading it. Comment if you can so I don't slack off!

Third: The newest season of Biggest Loser starts soon and I've decided to pick a contestant that's in my same boat and match or beat that weight loss number for the week, and I guess if that person gets voted out, I'll just move on to the next best candidate.

Last: For those that are interested in getting out at night after the kids are in bed, getting healthy or just plain getting out of the house, I will be walking at 8:30 every night. I will post the exact route tomorrow night, but those that would like to join can join. I will be walking every night till it snows!

So there it is. I guess we'll see what happens, but my goal with this whole thing is to see what a Healthy Me looks like. So here's to starting again....let's see what happens!!
