7 Months without my son, as of yesterday, seems so surreal. I have my grandsons all weekend, so they've kept me busy, taking care of them, but the pain is still deep and unending. I was scrolling through the pictures on my computer, wishing I ha... Read more
Finding a routine
They say it takes two weeks to establish a new habit. I have to say, I find myself back in that routine of working out and counting calories. I'm trying to be consistent with my food log, and checking in on FB. It's harder on the days when I hav... Read more
Been a little busy
I've had my grandsons for the past 4 days, so not much time to get on SP. I'm still on track with my workouts, and pretty consistent with my food....although we did have a birthday cake for my grandson on Sunday, and I had a few tablespoons of t... Read more
Good and bad...
Today was a day of many emotions. My grandson, turned 4 today, a milestone his father never got to see. Looking at pictures of my son holding his newborn son only 4 years ago, makes me think that I could never have imagined he wouldn't be here t... Read more

Working on it
Just returned from the gym with my daughter. I had a very good workout, but it wasn't easy to get through. It's as if I'm only going through the motions. I'm doing what I know I have to do, but there's no burning desire like before when I first ... Read more
And so it goes....
The new year is suppossed to be a time of new beginnings and resolutions; a new start, with fresh beginnings. How can that be when a piece of my heart was ripped out the day my son was taken from this earth? There's no way to piece together my s... Read more
I am beginning my 9th year of this journey. I have had ups and downs along the way. I lost 145 lbs from 2006 to 2007 and I've kept 90+ lbs of that off. Unfortunately, after the most difficult year of my life, I find myself over 200lbs again. Som... Read more
Hard to understand
I have met many people at the gym over my past 7 years as a member. It's nice to have a chat with other women and discuss what works, or doesn't work for us. I had a very disturbing conversation with a woman who spends hours in the gym everyday,... Read more
Thinking out loud
I'm reflecting on the past 37 years of my marriage, as we begin year 38, and realize that life has so many twists and turns. I may not be exactly where I thought I would be at this point in my life, but I'm happy, none the less, and would do it ... Read more
Keeping it fresh
I love my time in the gym pumping iron...I am often finding reasons to skip cardio so this week even though spin class is something I've been doing it for 8 years now, I have found that I can motivate myself, and so my own thing when the class i... Read more
I usually take the weekend off, but since I made a resolution to up the cardio, I planned to take spin class this morning. When I got up at 7:00 it was raining, so I rolled back over to go back to sleep until 8:00. Well, I slept through 8:00 but... Read more
Cardio has been an issue for the past few months...love my weight lifting, but cardio since field hockey has ended, is the thing I like least...additionally, on Mon/Tues/Wed my grandsons are here and the 9:00 spin class time is inconvenient....b... Read more
As I was leaving the gym yesterday (where I proudly went after shoveling my car out from Snowstorm Hercules) I realized that my Get Healthy Anniversary had passed on 1/1/14....8, eight, EIGHT years ago I weighed 300 lbs!!!!! There have been some... Read more
