I QUIT! (so I can start fresh;)
OK, I'm done whining about my lack of progress. Obviously, I don't know what to do, so I made the decision to just start over. That's MUCH better than what I would have done in the past, which is to just give up and forget about even trying to... Read more
Frustration! (More) advice would be appreciated.
I'm trying to keep a positive attitude this time. Really I am! But it's so hard when I'm feeling as many negative as positive results. I KNOW that exercising is good for me, whether or not I lose weight in the process; just as I know how impo... Read more
I can be SO foolish sometimes!
Sometimes it just takes opening my eyes for more clarity. I started easing my way back into healthier habits on March 11 of this year. Just baby steps to begin with, so the change would be gradual and easier for me to take. I made a conscious... Read more

Patience is a virtue, I've been told. I have no doubt that this is true. Unfortunately, I've never really had enough of it to find out for myself, nor can I really be considered "virtuous".

The Nutrition Puzzle
Another person's blog inspired this one.
Some of you who have visited my blog may wondered why I have a jigsaw puzzle background. The reason is that it just seemed appropriate, because that's how I feel about nutrition. Calories, to be more... Read more
YIKES! I guess those hikes caught up with me. I know better than to do the same hike two days in a row before my body's had a chance to get used to it, but I did it anyway. I have named this particular trail "The big Cardio Blast", due to the... Read more

Day 3: (yesterday) 2 miles of a 4 mile WATP video
Yesterday was not a good day. It was gloomy and snowy outside, and felt like it was inside as well. My joints ached, and my mood was really not good at all. When I weighed myself, even th... Read more

Eat your oatmeal!
I LOVE oatmeal! Oddly enough, I used to dislike oatmeal almost to the point of hating it - thought it was slimy, and just plain yucky. But times have changed, my tastes have changed, and I've learned that I can do SO MUCH with oatmeal that I... Read more
GREAT day yesterday!
I popped the WATP Walk and Kick video in yesterday, and IT WORKED!! Hurray!! I've been missing that workout like crazy, but it was on VHS, and the tape is pretty much shot. I have a replacement coming in the mail, on DVD, but I'm impatient, a... Read more
I am truly feeling motivated again! Oh praise be! Filled with renewed determination. I noted today that the amount of pounds I need to lose equals my age - so that must be a good sign! (???) Confession: I back on that sinister contraption (... Read more
