Not gaining is a victory.

Tuesday, October 13, 2015      3 comments

Had I not stopped eating the junk I was consistently eating, I figure I would have continued to gain about 2 lbs per week. So after a month, even if I've kept a steady weight, I'm about 8 lbs better than I would have been. I think that's a win. ... Read more

Being Conscious of My Emotions...

Sunday, July 12, 2015      1 comments

This is definitely something I've been practicing constantly this week. I don't know when or how, but somewhere along the way, I've become an emotional eater. It's amazing to hear my self suddenly say 'go to the fridge and eat something'! Eve... Read more

Staying Motivated in the Beginning - Tracking and Trying!

Tuesday, July 07, 2015      3 comments

I always find that there's a lead up to actually starting a healthy lifestyle change. At least that's how it works with me. I gradually start removing the boxes and blankets on top of the treadmill, then I start actually considering getting on... Read more

Just Keep Swimming...

Saturday, August 17, 2013      5 comments

Motivation can be so difficult to sustain. I find myself thinking about giving up so often that I wonder how I ever talk myself through it. I've decided to take out quotes I've printed and placing them around my house so I see them multiple ti... Read more

My arm hurts, so I want to just give up!

Saturday, July 27, 2013      3 comments

I know that's a completely silly way to think, but I just can't help hearing that voice in my head. I had a surgery 5 years ago on a nerve in my arm and everything healed just fine after that. It acts up every once in a while, but for the most... Read more

Yesterday you said tomorrow...

I saw that quote somewhere on SP...It's what I tell myself when I'm trying to motivate myself to do something... usually cardio! You better get on that treadmill... or outside running, or to that fitness class... because "yesterday you said ... Read more

Keeping up with Myself...

Monday, June 03, 2013      0 comments

Most days I see my long to-do list and think, of course I can get all that done today... but then as I reach for the bills I have to pay, I see a coupon I don't want to forget, which leads me to the magazine that I should really put in the bath... Read more

Took the dogs for a run this morning, grilled up some chicken and got fresh salad greens and radish from my garden... Great day today and it's not even 1:00pm yet! I've a list of things to get accomplished today and I'm on a roll. The ground ... Read more

I had a great day! For no reason in particular :)

Thursday, May 02, 2013      0 comments

I was talking to my husband tonight and of course, he asked how my day was... My response? It was good! and I'm smiling and just in a good mood. Inevitably, he asked what happened that made it so good? Absolutely nothing in particular. Read more

Today's Lesson...

Tuesday, April 30, 2013      0 comments

About 2 hours ago, I realized that my phone calendar has not been syncing with my online calendar, and when I updated my phone yesterday, my calendar disappeared. So, I am struck with a fear I haven't felt in a very long time... I'm going to b... Read more

Electric Fence = More Playtime; Win-Win!

Monday, April 29, 2013      0 comments

I really didn't want to put up 6 ft fencing around the yard to keep the dog from jumping over, so we went with the electric dog fence instead. At first, I was worried how the dogs would react and if our younger pup would understand what was goi... Read more

Darn dog, you jumped the fence? Again!?!?

So, there I am this morning , running a little late... trying to get coffee brewing... when the barking starts, and I think to myself "what's all the noise out there this early in the morning?" I go outside to find one dog sitting there looki... Read more

The "good day decision"

Sunday, April 21, 2013      1 comments

It may only be noon, but I've officially decided that today is a good day. Even though I didn't get a lot marked off my to-do list this morning as planned, and eventhough one of my dogs jumped the fence into the neighbor's yard, while the other... Read more

Just get out there and do it - thanks to my doggies!

I really didn't want to go for a walk today. My hamsting is tight and it looks like it's about to rain... and, and, and... I thought of a million reasons. Then I thought about that shirt I wore the other day that was too tight a few weeks ago... Read more

Day 13/14: Because you have goals you want to reach...

Saturday, January 19, 2013      1 comments

That's right, I have goals!!! And they are no longer scale-based. What a difference it makes to step OFF the scale to measure progress. I have been eating more veggies/fruit and that was a goal of mine that I've achieved. I wanted to exercis... Read more
