Need treadmill advice

Sunday, July 05, 2015      9 comments

Hubby agrees that I need a treadmill - I cannot walk outside due to all the hills in our neighbourhood (my knees *burn* just going up the street to the corner) - walking in place (whie watching Leslie) is OK but I think I need to "step it up" a ... Read more

I Quit

Sunday, June 21, 2015      26 comments

I broke my ankle last week - it's not a bad break, just a hairline fracture-thingy - it hurts like crazy and I'm in a cast for at least the next 5 weeks. They didn't even give me pain meds. To make matters worse - they don't "do" leg casts her... Read more

February review

Saturday, February 28, 2015      16 comments

Your mileage may vary

Sunday, January 11, 2015      13 comments

I was pondering this today, why we call it a 'weight loss journey'. I think of it this way: it's like driving a car. You check the speedometer to make sure you're not going too fast or too slow You check your rear-view mirror to keep... Read more

Crazy week

Saturday, January 03, 2015      8 comments

So...having hubby home has been problematic as far as weight loss/exercise. I've just postponed everything til he's back at work. Monday he wanted to paint a room - so we prepped and primed it. That was enough to knock me back for all of ... Read more

Beck Diet Solution Introduction

Saturday, December 27, 2014      6 comments

I was a little overly optimistic that I could get through the introduction in one day - it turned out to be 34 pages long! I didn't want to rush through it just so I could say I did it. I learned several things just from *really* reading and t... Read more

I was poking around my Sparkpage because I've been having trouble with my friend feed; people are missing and I wasn't sure why I never saw their updates. On the page that lists my spark friends I was shocked to see a half-page long list o... Read more

Noticed I hadn't posted a blog in a while.... Totally got off course when we all got sick, one after another over 3 weeks - that took my attention away from weight loss and I didn't even remember to think about doing what I set out to do a ... Read more

Wednesday, October 01, 2014      9 comments

My 13 week countdown started not too bad. I got my steps in every day except one (I was dizzy). I didn't quite lose 2.5 pounds - but 2 pounds will do. Although I got a new ... Read more
