Taking control of my body after a year of binging - Day 8

Day 8 – When I started this program, my weight was 193.8. Today, I weigh 189.9. This program is not difficult to do. The only downfall is that everyday; I have to focus on my calories for the day. When I told my co-worker about my progress, she was ecstatic. She asked me how I did it. She doesn’t think that she can do it as well. I told her that at first I was having the same thoughts as her. This is a complete lifestyle change. This means that I have to plan my meals ahead of time especially if I am going to eat out or attending a social event....more

As she fades

My mother’s heath has been on the decline for the past few years.  I don’t even like to say she’s sick because no one knows what is wrong with her. They throw around some phrases like “toxic neuropathy” but really they don’t know what happened or what’s going on or what’s going to fix it or even if they can. She’s been tested for everything several times (and I mean everything, she still gets a Lyme’s test every three months as well as lupus)....more

The Fitbug - Motivation in my Pocket

I do enjoy my workouts… the second they are over. Granted, there is a definite sense of pride and “I did good for my body today” feeling that follows a good workout. But somehow, that sense of achievement holds no reserve to motivate me for any subsequent workout. I’m on my own. Left to my own device, I would probably never exercise. And really, I only workout because I have to. I wish that I were one of those that could get lost in the endorphin rush, able to move past the pain. But no such luck. My neurotransmitters just ask me, Is this over yet?...more
