Starting once again.....
The vacation pictures have done it again. I guess I thought I was thinner than I really am. However, I'm far from being where I started, so there's time to get back on track. I have fresh veggies in my garden and I'm plenty motivated, so there's... Read more
Home From NYC
My trip to NYC was great. This was never really a place I wanted to go, but now that I have been there, I'm ready to go back. There is always something to do and something to see. The shows were fantastic! We saw Phantom of the Opera and Chicago... Read more
So Far, So Good
I'm down 5 pounds so far since the first of the year. That may not seem like a lot, but it seemed like all I did was gain over the past few months. I have been exercising, and I have to admit my stamina is getting somewhat better. I can do Cardi... Read more
And so it was Christmas...
I have been focused and positive. I've been happy over the holidays and I really didn't do too poorly with my eating. The only exception may have been a little too much cherry slush. However, the lack of exercise and lack of sleep have taken the... Read more
What I Want
I know what I want and I know how to get it. Nothing or nobody can stop me. Heaven help anyone who tries to stand in my way.... Read more
Fall is crazy for me. We have golf, band, school, football games, the girls' birthdays, homecoming at both schools, and whatever else life throws at us. I love this time of year. I love the colors, the smells, the lower temps, but most of all, I... Read more
Back to Work
I had a wonderful vacation. All the kids were here and my house was full and noisy again. When they left to go camping, Randy and I took a much needed break and went to Myrtle Beach for a few days. We played golf and walked on the beach and had ... Read more
Do I Love Myself Enough?
Sometimes inspiration and motivation come from the strangest places. Yesterday evening, after an emotionally draining day, I was curled up in the recliner with a cat on my lap watching the All Star Home Run Derby with my husband and son. I had n... Read more
I've been gone for a while, and making all the same old tired excuses, and I've gained about 10 pounds. I won't make any more excuses, but I'm back now and ready to lose this weight. I have so much life to live!... Read more
Where I'm Going
Today while I was doing some work in my bedroom, I put in a vacation video from 2003. I weighed 138 then and this was about the start of my hormone issues that caused me to gain so much weight. That's also not much less than I weigh now. I have ... Read more
Happy New Year!
I keep hearing Bono.."all is quiet on New Year's day..." LOL! Well, the wind is howling, Jon is snoring on the sofa, the dogs are running around, so it's not really quiet here, but I love it. This has been such a wonderful Christmas. Even with m... Read more
Two years ago...
Yesterday we went to Randy's parents' house for our Christmas celebration with them. Despite the weather, and the extra 45 minutes it took us to get there, we had a great time. His mom has finally figured out how to use their digital camera and ... Read more
The First Snow
We have our first big snowfall of the winter and school is closed today. It's so pretty, but Bryan has to drive home from Cincinnati tomorrow, so I'm a little worried about that. But, the worst thing is , I have my first major cold of the season... Read more
I Hate Thanksgiving
I really do hate this holiday. It's no holiday for me. Tonight is my only night off, and I have to go to the store and start getting everything ready. Randy and the girls help, but the majority of the work falls on me. To top everything else off... Read more
I can't believe this year is so close to it's end. It's been a busy time for me, but I love it. This is my favorite time of year with the cooler temps and the fall colors. I really slacked last week, but fortunately I didn't do any real damage. ... Read more
