Today I ran (walk/jogged) The Claddagh 4 miler. This is my 3rd year doing it. First year with my son, 2nd with my friend and this alone. Truth is I don't really "run" with anyone, I start and finish with people, but I run my own pace and they... Read more
Still Here and Still Moving!
I had a good first week of the DietBet. I felt empowered. Hubby did awesome and lost 4 pounds. I lost 1.5. The weekend didn't quite go as well and it led to a less than "perfect" monday. I'm not upset with myself, but I need to make sure I ... Read more
Big Plans for the next month.
I'm taking a lot of steps over the next month. I have involved myself in several little/big challenges and it feels so promising. I weighed in today for a DietBet - (Lose Together, Win Together!) - My DH and I are doing it together. 28 days t... Read more
Taking Pride in the Little Things.
Today I am taking pride in the little things. One of my goals on my Start Page includes "resisting a temptation". I have the ticker to mark off each time I achieve this. Until today there hadn't been many ticks. But today I noticed myself re... Read more
Knowing and Doing are 2 different things!
I want to know how so many of us can know and understand what needs to be done to see and feel healthy progress, yet remain stuck in a stagnant, self-esteem-deflating place? How can I know what worked for me before and yet when I set up the pla... Read more
Yes, to achieve my goal, I think I need to be more specific about what I want and how I am going to achieve it. I have still been too vague! I am thinking about my BIG goal!!! I will be participating in the BattleFrog 15k in July! That is 9 ... Read more
Damn, am I good a making plans!! BUT...
My last blog was only partially right. To achieve a goal, I not only NEED a plan, but I NEED to EXECUTE a plan. Yup, it really helps to actually follow through with what you have planned. I swear it makes all the difference in the world. I m... Read more
To achieve my goals, I need a plan.
I have been journaling about my goals. I realize that most of my goals were to vague and my plans to achieve them were nonspecific. Basically, the plan was to do better than I have before. It's my way of taking baby steps, but to achieve the ... Read more
There's a reason for everything.
We've all heard it and I'm pretty sure we've all said it at one point or another. In the moment it is hard to hear even though we know it to be true. And when the "reason" shows up it is often hard to recognize or appreciate until much later i... Read more
Note to self...
Things I need to consider - Possible 2015 goals -
- backbend (is this possible?)
- Run (jog) a whole 5k again - haven't done that in over a year
- BattleFrog 15k - done deal
- Hike Mt. Monadnock twice (spring and fall)
- a pull up ... Read more
First blog on my app!!
I love that the app has been updated to look and act more like the website. I feel so much more connected and able to access my tools. I wish I could access my "other goals", but I am so happy with everything else. One thing I enjoyed yesterday ... Read more
WTG's or keeping silent?
6 years ago I had success in losing about 55 pounds. I still had about another 30-40 pounds to lose, but at 5'1" and 160 I felt very comfortable with myself. I had really found the athlete inside of me. I was running, biking, hiking, doing tr... Read more
I didn't die from starvation!
Day one done and I woke up - strangely enough, not starving. Laughing at myself. Oh the hunger I felt last night. Woke up - had 2 cups of water and soon I will feed my body with a good breakfast. Happy Day everyone!... Read more
It's been one year exactly since my last blog! This won't happen again.
Yes, I said, I'm STARVING!!! I forgot and/or I don't realize how much I had been eating on a regular basis until I choose to decrease the amount. So many times tod... Read more
January 1, 2014
Here we are. So many wonderful replies to my "Start Again" post. I love you people. A friend of mine, Elzzy, just mentioned how she doesn't like to do resolutions, but just do her best for the year and I just love that approach. I always hav... Read more
