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
3 times I have changed my title and 3 times I have restarted this blog. So many thoughts, so many feelings, how do you put them down in writing? I don't have hours to write, but I am sure that spending some serious time writing would be really... Read more
A better today.
Happy that I started moving in the right direction today. Avoided some things that have been way over indulged on recently and adding things that needed adding. Body is going to go through some serious detox, but I know in the end it's worth i... Read more
I am rediscovering Sparkpeople. I have updated my profile and added to my new start page. I am not waiting until January 1st to make changes. I am starting them now. I am disappointed that in looking at my old profile I can see that I have p... Read more
Sink or swim???
Today I got into the water for the first time this year. I had to - it was 95+. I expected the weather, so DH and I planned on making swimming our exercise. We don't exercise together as often as we used to, but we still try. The actual swim... Read more
OH, I just don't care what I look like! VS I accept myself as is today!!!
What's the difference? IT's a huge internal difference. Looking at my reflection and seeing curves - sometimes they are embraced, but sadly more often than not I find myself disappointed in who I am. I saw that reflection today and the curves... Read more
