Back on Track, and Remembering
I did a great job today. I got my calories on track, and I ate healthy. I FORGOT how much food I could actually eat when I ate well! LOL :) I didn't overdo the sugar, (tho I was just a touch high in the fat department)
I've had a really h... Read more

Trying to cut the sugar
I've been having issues with carbs since Thanksgiving. I know it's a bit silly to try to do this right before Christmas, but I can do it. I am so sick of overdoing the sugar, but no matter what I've done, I've not been able to break it. So I... Read more

Stressful couple of days
I've not been on spark as much as I'd like lately. First I was sick, then hubby and I were both sick, then the cat and the hubby were sick! Egads! Thankfully, everyone is on the mend. As such, fitness is on the low end, except my lots of wal... Read more
My journey to my inner strength set to music
I was just going to do a blog to review my day. Then I started thinking about how far I've come in the last few years, and some of the music that's helped give me strength, or more particularly, find my own strength.
This is something th... Read more

Beginning to recognize myself
Over the summer, I remember having my husband take a picture of me as I stood against the bow of a boat on the Chicago River. Looking at that picture, I had to do a double-take. I didn't recognize myself. I had lost enough weight (about 20 l... Read more
