I'm so happy! I don't know how it happened but the important thing is that I managed to lose another pound!!! I think it might be the extra boost in walking. See, I made a goal to walk 7,500 steps a day. With all of this nice weather (anythi... Read more

I am *so* happy! I've been bouncing back and forth between 124-125 lbs for about 6 weeks now. See, when I started here, I was 130 and wanted to be down to 120. I've seen what I looked like at that weight and I liked it a lot. I was nur... Read more
I saw it!

It was brief and it doesn't technically count, but I saw it and it gave me hope and got me feeling motivated again! I weighed myself this morning. I expected to see something not very good after overindulging this weekend. I got on the scale ... Read more

This is sort of a reassessment time for me. There are clearly some things working and there are clearly some things I'm struggling with. I think I need to re-evaluate my efforts. When I originally set my goal to lose 10lbs, I had no idea I'd ... Read more

Need to vent. I’ve been working out for 3 weeks now. Week 1: did 3 days of strength training and 1 day of cardio at the gym. Also walked at lunch a couple of days that week – roughly 1.5 miles in 30 minutes. Week 2: Went to the gym M-W f... Read more

This is going to get a little long because I sort of have multiple things I want to write about. Camping: I love camping! My youngest loves it too. He's such an outdoor kind of kid. We took our first camping trip of the season. I fear t... Read more

When I was finishing my work out this morning, I looked at the clock. It was coming up on 4:50. Twenty years ago, at 4:50am, I woke up to use the bathroom. I was 9 months and 12 days pregnant with my first child. What it took me a little whi... Read more

I'm so proud of myself today. I worked out my regularly scheduled work out. What's the big deal with that you ask? Well, let me tell you. I did more walking yesterday that I have since I started tracking. Better than that, was the fact that... Read more

My weight hasn't dropped any, but I'm okay with it at this point. The goal was 120lbs for June. I managed to lose the first 5lbs just by changing my eating habits. Now that I have a way to exercise, it can't be much longer before I drop a few... Read more

This will be short and sweet. I went to Planet Fitness this morning before work. I'm meeting with the trainer tomorrow afternoon to put together a plan (and hopefully get a lesson in how to use some of the equipment because it turns out, I cou... Read more

Not much new to report. I saw a psychologist last week and will see her again this afternoon to address my mental health while we help my son though his mental health crisis. One of the things she mentioned was getting some "me" time. She men... Read more

We are still dealing with my son and his potential plan to kill himself on the 28th of this month. I say potential because his mood has improved as we've helped him come up with a plan for the issues causing him the most stress. He's also been... Read more

Ugh. There have been a fair number of moments in my life that I can feel with the intensity of when they happened. Finding out I was pregnant with my first, getting engaged, seeing the first ultrasound when I was pregnant with my 2nd, going to... Read more
What we learned with limited CP access

It's been crazy at work and I've not had the internet at home. I'm back at square 1 in a way. I haven't gained all the weight back, but I certainly added enough. I am not really despairing too much at this point. Any time you learn from ... Read more
