It's been two years, but I'm still here.

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

It's been two years since I've posted a blog, almost to the day.

What have I been up to? Well, I'm still on this weight loss journey, but the successes have been more than the failures lately. I'll never say that I have all this thing all figured out, but I'm looking at it in a different way now. Before my focus was always & solely on weight loss, now I'm truly focused on healthy living.

I started back running in August & joined a Biggest Loser competition at work, which I won. I then broke my toe last month & have yet to get back to running. It's healing slowly, but surely. Despite the time off from running, I still go to the gym daily, doing 45 minutes of strength training. I have continued to lose weight.

Now in the time of fasting - I'm doing a Daniel Fast - I hope to focus more on my spiritual & mental well-being: the whole package of health along with the physical.

  


Thank you Dr. MKL Jr.

Well I hope that those that had the day of enjoyed it. I am very thankful for the legacy of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and how his & many other Americans' bravery shaped my life for the better.

I'm doing well with my eating. Some of the same issues as before, but I expected it. I do find myself counting calories in my head or wanting to still track my work-outs, but I don't. I still get some minutes and points for tracking some things.

I'm looking forward to my trip next week. I am so excited! So glad to get away and see the Bay Area and spend time with dear friends.

Happy New Year!

Sunday, January 01, 2012

Happy New Year! I hope that 2011 was fabulous to you & that 2012 will be even better. I have made several resolutions and I'm not usually big on resolutions, but felt the need to turn the page on 2011.

So today I'm going to make the radical decision to no longer track my food. I don't need to track my fitness minutes either. Heck, I may stop weighing myself. Today, I give this battle against obesity over to God. I am only going to do His will in this fight. And I believe He wants me to be free from the way I obsessively track every morsel and every minute of exercise on multiple sites and platforms. That's not freedom. I believe that I can break the chains of obesity, but it will be in a different way. I'm not saying that this is the way, I'm saying that it's my way, starting today. What a sense of freedom & relief I feel! Welcome 2012, you are so good already!
