"to reset your ipod...hold down the middle button and the menu button at the same time for about 3-4 seconds. It sort of reboots it. The screen goes black then the apple appears while it is booting up."

well here I am again........

Posted on June 13, 2012 at 12:16pm 2 Comments

I haven't gotten on here as much as I would like but I am going to try to be better.  I started Insanity yesterday and am planning to do the second work out when I get home today.  I ate well for most of the day yesterday, even picked a salad with fat free dressing and banana from the cafeteria at the hospital and ate a good dinner but the snacking last night didn't help my day at all!  I have planned out my day better today and logged it already into mfp.  So here's to a good day today!

Enough is enough!

I have so many excuses as to why my weight is almost back up to where it was when I started on this in the world did I gain almost all of the 50 pounds I lost back??  Nursing school on top of working, life and kids doesn't help much with my eating and exercises but that's no excuse.  I am a huge stress eater and nursing school is stressful to say the least!  I'm sitting here beating myself up after scarfing down a Carl's Jr burger and fries for lunch........ENOUGH!  I know…

I'm sick of being tired, I'm sick of having a closet full of clothes I can't wear, I'm sick of feeling STOP MAKING EXCUSES...JUST DO IT!  I've got to get my weight back off!  I did this before I can do it again!  I feel so much better, confident and enjoy life when I am thinner so why is it so dang hard to keep my motivation going?  So here goes nothin...  I have a planner and I put in it a pic of thin on a cruise two years ago and a pic from my cruise a couple of weeks ago so I…

still on track!  I ended up going to the gym and doing 45 min of cardio yesterday.  I also made shrimp with barley and a salad for dinner.  Today has been a crazy day since I have school and work, my Tuesdays and Thursdays are always crazy.  I grabbed my oatmeal on the way out the door and grabbed a southwest salad and yogurt parfait from McD's for lunch.  Here is my meals so far for today.


Kashi go lean oatmeal - 150

McD salad with balsamic dressing -…


getting back up after a few days of funk

well I've been in a funk the last few days.  I haven't made the best of choices but it could have been worse.  My time of the month always seems to bring me down and I make bad food choices.  I'm back on track today and hitting the gym after work.  So here is to dusting myself off and getting back on the wagon.


Kashi go lean oatmeal - 150

small grapefruit - 76

roast with veggies - 405

thinking shrimp with bulgar and a salad for dinner-…

I swear I'm not a stalker, lol, but I just read on Tiffany's post that you live in Austin; so do I!! Where abouts Austin do you live??

I live in Austin proper, kind of in North Campus actually and work off west 6th and Mopac. It's nice to know there's someone on here that's so close!

Hey Kim! Well...about the running and the Nike+! I've NEVER been a runner. In fact I've really hated it...but since I got the Nike+ I've actually changed my mind! It is so much fun.. and motivating if you're in a challenge with other etc. And I totally think it's helped me. I was definitely at a standstill in my weight loss....and since I started running at the end of October, I have lost another 9 lbs or so! I REALLY think it has helped a lot!

The Nike+ is a pretty small investment and I think its really done wonders for me! Probably because my body is in such "shock"...since it's never ran before! Keep me posted!!

Cool! Can't wait! I bought mine at Best Buy. Along with the little "pouch" for it to attach to my shoe, since I don't wear Nike's.

Kim... from what I've read, Nike+ won't work on the elliptical.
About adding them to your page....when you go to My Mini....go in the upper right and corner where it says "share" (i think...going off memory)...and choose add to web page. Then it will bring up a box that says "grab the code". Then you can just paste it in on your profile!

Same with the challenge one. I just went to our challenge page and selected SHARE.

forgot to mention.. yes.. I have had a "little" bit of trouble losing runs etc...But now I just reset my ipod before every run (but holding down the center + menu button at the same time). Since I started that I haven't lost a run yet.

Plus...after I upload each new run...I delete it from my ipod. Not sure that helps, but I"m not chancing it. What I'm doing is working for me! LOL Nothing peeves me more than if I run 3 miles and then it won't upload to! ; )

Hey when I started running I wasn't sure I could EVER run 5 min. straight. But the C25K program really helped. I just can't stand the techno music that C25K I printed off the actual workouts and just watched the clock on the treadmill...and ran/walked when I was supposed to.

If you want.. I can email you my word doc print outs for C25K if you want. Better yet...I'll just paste it into a message for you.

Hi Kim - the detox I'm doing is the Fast Track Detox Diet by Ann Louise Gittleman (she wrote the gut flush and fat flush books). It's basically just really clean eating - organic as much as possible - no preservatives, sweeteners, caffiene, etc., and then including certain foods that supposedly support your liver. If you want, you can go to my main blog( and look at the 1/22 entry (toward the bottom of the entry) - I describe it a little. There's also a support forum at
So far, so good for me :) I'm also keeping track of WW points because that's the program I started on AND I'm using SparkPeople to keep track of calories, fat, carbs, etc. because I don't want my calories to get too low while detoxing. I don't want to stop exercising or gain it all back when I stop. Hope that helps :)
