Thu, 8 Sep 2016 10:20:04 EST Starting over, again Well, here I am, and I have almost gained back the 40 pounds I lost in 2013. <BR> <BR> <img src=""> <BR> <BR> Even though I am 10 pounds less than my heaviest weight, I feel 10 pounds heavier than my heaviest weight. I also look so huge to me. I am so afraid that I have more fat and less muscle than I did 3 years ago. And my knee is starting to bother me. <BR> <BR> So instead of sitting and <BR> <img src="ht... Tue, 30 Aug 2016 16:16:50 EST 1/27/16 Check-in This past week has been pretty good. I am doing three challenges - BL Winter Challenge, the 5% Challenge, and the BLC30. I didn't post on the team chat threads like I intended to, so I felt a little disconnected from my teams. I will fix that this week. <BR> <BR> I think I made progress. I exercised 5 days, and I had more control over my eating. I lost 1.6 pounds, which makes me very happy! <em>30</em> <BR> <BR> My SMART Goal results: <BR> <em>248</em> Lose 25 pounds, from 1/20 to Ma...

I like these goals and want to put them here on my blog so I can also report on them here. For me, the most important part is "Do NOT get into an all-or-nothing mindset; these are just goals and steps." This is such an important reminder for myself, because I allow myself to be derailed when I cannot meet my goals perfectly. <BR> <BR> So important, I'm going to say it again: <BR> <BR> <em>... Sat, 28 Nov 2015 09:32:23 EST Regeneration <em>465</em> I love fall. I especially love the trees of fall. <BR> <BR> I love watching the trees adorn themselves with the color of fire. Red, yellow, gold, rust, purple. And then I love watching them shed their opulent beauty without a shred of remorse. Their gorgeous leaves turn brown, and then drift to the ground. <BR> <BR> <img src=""> <BR> <BR> I love them as they stand there stark naked, thrusting the... Wed, 18 Nov 2015 11:46:35 EST 2015 Summer Biggest Loser Challenge Blurb Although I didn't make it through the summer biggest loser challenge, I like what I wrote for my page for the challenge, about being like a Diamond, so I am saving it here. <em>30</em> <BR> <BR> 2015 Summer Biggest Loser Challenge - Diamond Team <BR> June 10 through August 19 <BR> <BR> Diamonds are formed at high temperatures and with great pressure, and are extremely hard.

Wed, 18 Nov 2015 11:17:35 EST Healthy Habits Day 2 Making a plan to accomplish my goal. <BR> <BR> My goal: I will intentionally feel good about one thing every day, and I will write it down. <BR> <BR> I will schedule 10 minutes before bed time to reflect on my day, choose one thing I feel good about, and journal those feelings. <BR> <BR> My feel good from yesterday: I went for 10 minute walk before lunch, and enjoyed the feeling of the sun and the breeze on my skin. I felt strong and invigorated, and I felt good about making the time to... Sat, 30 May 2015 09:46:27 EST Healthy Habits Reset, Day 1 Goals, goals, goals. Goal setting. Reach for your goals. Set your goals high. Keep moving towards your goals. Exercise more, eat less, lose weight. Ugh. I have grown to hate goals. They became another tool I used to bash myself for not being good enough, for not succeeding. <BR> <em>198</em> <em>28</em> <em>46</em> <BR> <BR> Today I am going to set a different kind of goal for this month. <BR> <BR> <em>67</em> I will intentionally feel good about one thing every day, and I wil... Fri, 29 May 2015 09:51:49 EST Blogging for the Starfish - Question #5 What can you improve upon? <BR> I can always improve on my consistency. I do very well with a goal for a while, then slowly start to slack off. So I am watching out for that tendency. Wed, 6 Mar 2013 09:52:12 EST Blogging for the Starfish I'm participating in the 5% Winter into Spring challenge, and our challenge this week is to blog. We are supposed to answer a question each day this week. So I'm catching up. <em>30</em> <BR> <BR> 1) What new habit do you wish to develop? <BR> I want to add more activity to my day. Not just exercise, but more activity in general. At work my day consists of sitting in front of a computer, and then I go home and I tend to want to sit either in front of the computer or in front of the T... Tue, 5 Mar 2013 13:06:24 EST BLC 19 Goals <BR> My goals for the next 12 weeks of the BLC 19: <BR> <BR> Food: <BR> I am currently reading about sugar addiction and sugar sensitivity, and boy does that fit me to a T! So my food goals are going to center around what I am learning. <BR> 1. Track it - write down everything I eat, along with how I am feeling physically and mentally/emotionally. <BR> 2. Increase the amount of protein I am getting each day, with a goal of 60 - 80 grams a day. <BR> <BR> Exercise: <BR> 1. Achieve streakdo... Mon, 30 Apr 2012 22:18:01 EST Loving Myself Into Health <em>26</em> I think loving myself is the most important part of reconnecting with my Healthy Me. <BR> <BR> Lack of self-love is one of the things (hmmm … perhaps THE thing) that drives my emotional eating. I seek out my comfort foods, sweet, creamy carbilicious goodies, as a substitute for self-love. And we all know how well that strategy works! Oh sure, for a few minutes I am transported to a place of pure bliss as the sugars hit my tongue and fire off all those good-feeling sensati... Tue, 14 Feb 2012 13:14:42 EST A&I Blog - February Goals I'm participating in the Aspire and Inspire Team's Buddy Support Group for February, and part of our first week's challenge is to blog about our February goals. <BR> <BR> I don't like to make specific goals for that amount of time. I prefer to set goals on a weekly basis, so I don't get discouraged or despair of reaching a goal if I have a bad week. I do like to vision where I want to be though. So this morning I took a few minutes to project into the future and see how I would like to be... Wed, 1 Feb 2012 12:17:26 EST Connecting to my Healthy Me Instead of making New Year's Resolutions this year, I chose a word to work with, live with, explore and discover during 2012. The word I chose, or maybe that chose me, is connect. <BR> <BR> Definition of connect: <BR> 1. to join, link, or fasten together; unite or bind <BR> 2. to establish communication between <BR> 3. to cause to be associated, as in a personal or business relationship <BR> 4. to associate mentally or emotionally <BR> <BR> I suffer from disconnection in many parts ...

The BL Fit and Focused in the Fall challenge will start on September 7. I would like to invite everybody to check it out here: <link><BR>ndividual.asp </link> <BR> <BR> These challenges are a lot of fun. My first BL challenge was as a Jade Dragon this past spring. Then I switched over to the Sapphire Beauties so I could be on the same team as ... Tue, 16 Aug 2011 19:25:30 EST Review of August Week 2 It's time to see how I did last week. <BR> <BR> 1. Nourish myself <BR> <BR> Goal 1 - Eat at least 6 servings of freggies every day. <BR> <em>248</em> Most days. This is a goal I will continue with. <BR> <BR> Goal 2 - Control the portions I am choosing. <BR> <em>248</em> This I am pretty successful at. <BR> <BR> Goal 3 - Journal my food. <BR> This is a fail. I did not journal any of my food. Here lies my problems because although I am controlling my portions, I know I am still ea... Mon, 15 Aug 2011 10:41:31 EST 25 Things About Me I am participating in a challenge on the Aspire and Inspire team, and our assignment this week was to write a list of 25 things about ourselves. This was kind of hard but a lot of fun. <em>334</em> <BR> <BR> 1. I find snakes fascinating; I think they sense this as they tend to congregate in my yard. <BR> 2. I was an air force brat and moved constantly during my childhood. <BR> 3. I was born in Orlando, FL. <BR> 4. My husband was the second boy I dated; I’ve been with him since I was 17 a... Thu, 11 Aug 2011 12:24:14 EST Reflection on Week 1 - August Last week was a so-so week. I have (once again) over-committed myself and I have become stressed over some things I volunteered to do. So in order to get some of those things done, I had to sacrifice some of my exercise time. I also didn't make as many good food choices as I would have liked for myself to make. <BR> <BR> First week (8/1 to 8/7) <BR> <BR> 1. Nourish myself <BR> <BR> Goal 1 - Look for an opportunity to swap a not-so-good choice with a better choice once a day. <BR> I ... Tue, 9 Aug 2011 14:41:54 EST August Goals "Every day do something that will inch you closer to a better tomorrow." With that thought in mind, I am going to make some goals for August. <BR> <BR> 1. Nourish myself <BR> First week (8/1 to 8/7) <BR> Look for an opportunity to swap a not-so-good choice with a better choice once a day. <BR> Eat at least 6 servings of freggies every day. <BR> Observe the portions I am choosing. <BR> <BR> <em>274</em> <em>289</em> <em>491</em> <em>210</em> <em>140</em> <em>69</em> <em>267... Wed, 3 Aug 2011 12:29:00 EST My Eating Problem I really appreciate everyone's comments and encouraging words on my previous blog post. I think I need to add a little more about my eating issues, and that actually goes along with one of our countdown assignments that I was planning on skipping, and that I have skipped every other 5% challenge. It has to do with trigger foods and trigger situations. <BR> <BR> I am a vegetarian, and I really like Weight Watchers' plan. To me, Weight Watchers is a method of helping you control your eating... Fri, 15 Jul 2011 10:16:40 EST New Day, New Commitment The 2011 Summer 5% Challenge will be starting this Saturday. It will be my fourth 5% Challenge; however, I have yet to lost my 5% during any of them. I'm also halfway through the BL Summer Slim Down Challenge, and I am not going to meet my goal in that challenge. So as of today, I am making a commitment to myself, that for the next 8 weeks I will follow my eating and exercising plan. <BR> <BR> Eating Plan: Vegetarian Weight Watchers <BR> This is my Achilles heel, my downfall, my bigge...

I am on the Sapphire Beauties team with my friend Georgia, and I think it will be a lot of fun! <BR> <BR> Our prechallenge was to write a letter to our future self with what we hope to accomplish during this challenge. <BR> <BR> I have been thinking about this all week, but wasn't sure what to write. It came to me when I went to post my initial weigh in. I have done several of these kinds of challenges sinc... Wed, 8 Jun 2011 10:31:48 EST Okay, now where did my spice go???? I broke out my Zumba dvds that I have had for a while but was too scared to try. I just had that feeling, you know, that I might be in over my head with it. I'm not sure why, but there you have it. <BR> <BR> <img src=""> <BR> <BR> So I turned on the first dvd, and thankfully I saw there was a part to teach you how to do the moves. And a sweet faced girl ASSURED me I would have NO problems learning the moves. <BR> <BR> <img src="ht... Sun, 5 Jun 2011 18:31:59 EST So how did I do yesterday?

Sat, 21 May 2011 08:57:55 EST 10 Minute Daily Exercise Challenge My Jade Dragon Biggest Loser Challenge ended today. My last weigh in of the challenge is 225.4. My starting weigh in 10 weeks ago was 224.6. That is an overall gain of 0.8 pounds. All I did over the whole 10 weeks is lose and gain the same couple of pounds. <em>198</em> <BR> <BR> I did very well with my exercise for a while. Built up to about 60 minutes a day, and did some form of activity every day. For several weeks. Then, not so much. I got sick, I didn't feel good, yadda yadda... Thu, 19 May 2011 22:06:26 EST The Fool - The Beginning of the Journey I have decided I will post my Fool's Journey through the BLC-16. I have a lot of tarot decks, but I'm using my favorite one, the Celtic Dragon Tarot Deck, and I'm concentrating on how the tarot cards will comment on my weight loss journey. This will be fun! <em>30</em> <BR> <BR> So the Fool represents the beginning of a journey. The Fool sometimes appears to be taking a blind step off of a cliff, and sometimes this is because he is stupid, and sometimes because he has faith in the Unive... Thu, 14 Apr 2011 22:01:22 EST Goals for BLC16 Our final assignment before the challenge starts is to post three goals for the challenge and...gulp...a before picture. Let me just say, I hate looking at my picture. But I did it. I got my husband to take a picture before I went to work this morning. So, here I am with Flea. <BR> <BR> <img src=""> <BR> <BR> My three goals for this challenge: <BR> <BR> 1. Nutrition - Stick with my diet plan 5 days of the week. My eating is what i... Tue, 12 Apr 2011 20:46:07 EST Wisteria Wolf Challenge I am a Wisteria Wolf for the BLC-16, and one of my sister wolves posted this challenge on her blog. This will help me stay focused this weekend (which I have a lot of trouble with) and gear me up for the start of our challenge on next Wednesday! <BR> <BR> Anyone who wants to join in on this is free to. You can earn up to 50 points per day (Friday - Tuesday) for a max total of 250 points. Anyone who beats me gets a goodie. WOO HOO! <BR> <BR> <BR> In honor of being a Wisteria Wolf again, i... Fri, 8 Apr 2011 12:58:20 EST Goals for March 26 through April 1 I got 105 exercise minutes yesterday, and I'm so proud of that! I never thought I would get that many exercise minutes in a day! And I felt really good at the end of the day, not tired or exhausted at all. I am actually enjoying moving my body and feeling it get stronger each day. Now, if I could just get my eating under control! <BR> <BR> I dug my tarot cards out from under the clutter on my desk, and drew a card for today. I drew the 10 of wands, and it is a picture of a person climb... Sat, 26 Mar 2011 10:34:57 EST Safeguarding My Most Valuable Asset "It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver." - Mohandas Gandh <BR> <BR> I went to the doctor yesterday because I am suffering terribly from an evil case of poison ivy. <em>234</em> Itchy and grumpy, that is me right now. Oh, actually, itchy, grumpy, and with a yucky tummy from steroids because the doctor talked me into oral steroids versus a shot. But anyways I digress because this is not the point of my blog. <BR> <em>198</em> <BR> <BR> The doctor review... Sat, 19 Mar 2011 09:21:56 EST Weekly goals I have joined a new challenge - the Biggest Loser Challenge. I'm on the Jade Dragons team. That is just so ironic because I love dragons! And the nickname given to me by my daughter and her friends during their teenage years is dragonmom; and they still call me that to this day. So I feel mighty comfortable as a Jade Dragon. <em>334</em> <BR> <BR> I am continuing on with my Shooting Stars team also. I love being a Shooting Star. These challenges are motivating me to keep on trying. ... Sat, 12 Mar 2011 11:37:58 EST I have ab muscles! I was walking to the printer this morning, when I noticed some kind of activity going on in my stomach region, something moving under my belly fat. So I stopped, did a quick furtive look around to make sure no one was looking, picked up my shirt, and looked at my belly make funny little rolling movements. OMG, I have muscles under there!!!!! <em>40</em> <BR> <BR> So I rushed over to my cube mate, picked up my shirt (we are very good friends), and told her to look! Muscles! She was sui... Fri, 25 Feb 2011 20:04:35 EST Weekly exercise minutes update I have been exercising every day this week so far! Even tonight, when I had to work late, I still got on my Wii for 30 minutes.

Thu, 24 Feb 2011 21:06:05 EST On Being a Shooting Star <img src=""> <BR> <BR> As I walked on my break, I pondered what it means to me to be a Shooting Star, which is the name of my 5% challenges team. I do better on my walks when I give my mind something to do, otherwise it points out that my legs are tired, that I’m breathing awfully hard, that I’m beginning to sweat and that is just ewwwwuuuu, that maybe I have to pee so I should stop, and that we are coming up on the end of the first lap... Wed, 23 Feb 2011 14:53:02 EST My Commitment to Myself in the 5% Winter-1 Challenge One of the assignments in the Winter-1 5% Challenge is to blog about my commitments in this challenge. So I have been thinking about why I want to lose weight. <BR> <BR> My goals for this challenge are: <BR> <BR> 1. To lose 5%, or about 11 pounds, in 8 weeks. That is about 1.4 pounds per week, and I think it is doable. <BR> <BR> 2. To get a good exercise regimen in place, one that becomes habitual and easy to maintain. <BR> <BR> 3. To get to know my fellow teammates and offer support an... Tue, 22 Feb 2011 20:00:20 EST Exercise Goals for this week My goal is to get in 210 exercise minutes between Saturday and Friday for my 5% Winter-1 challenge. It helped me last time to blog my progress, so here I go. <em>224</em> <BR> <BR> Goal - 210 <BR> Sat - 0 <BR> Sun - 75, 135 to go <BR> Mon - 60, 75 to go <BR> <BR> I did very good with my exercise yesterday and today. I am back at work tomorrow, so my minutes will probably go down for the rest of the week as my time is more limited. <BR> <BR> <em>216</em> <em>313</em> <em>414</em> <e... Mon, 21 Feb 2011 20:57:12 EST Limitations are all in my head Limitations live only in our minds. But if we use our imaginations, our possibilities become limitless. <BR> <BR> I am trying very hard to remove the limitations in my mind. Too many times I look at something, usually something I really want to do or be, and my first response is, I could never do that. And I know that is my fearful little me speaking. <BR> <BR> I am participating in the Winter-1 5% Challenge which just started yesterday. I really, really want to lose 5% over the next 8... Sun, 20 Feb 2011 23:22:45 EST Quiet Courage Courage doesn't always roar. <BR> Sometimes courage is the quiet voice <BR> at the end of the day saying, <BR> "I will try again tomorrow." <BR> - Mary Anne Radmacher <BR> <BR> It takes courage to pick myself up off the ground and forgive myself for stumbling. It is far easier to take a big stick and beat myself up, allowing the same old record to play in my head about how I am fat, lazy, stupid, and always destined to fail and to never be thin and healthy again. I am comfortable wit... Thu, 17 Feb 2011 11:51:59 EST All that is gold does not glitter I found this quote by J.R.R. Tolkien, and it really made me pause and ponder. <BR> <BR> All that is gold does not glitter. <BR> <BR> It made me think that something does not have to be glittery, flashy, shiny, and obvious to be valuable. When I apply that to my quest for a healthier me, it reminds me that my efforts don't have to be huge, life-shattering, and all-or-nothing to make a difference. My small, not-so-obvious changes are just as effective, actually probably more effective, than... Fri, 28 Jan 2011 23:04:29 EST 5% Winter Challenge, Week 7 I didn't blog my progress last week because, well, I didn't have any progress. <em>198</em> I didn't do as well with my exercise or tracking my food. And as a result I gained a pound. <em>39</em> I just want to get my stick out and beat myself. <BR> <BR> So, back to the drawing board. I will be posting my daily progress with exercise and the Living the Good Life challenge. That just seemed to work really well for me. It gave me the motivation to do well so I could add those points ...
