Twelve week BLC goals
This is my third BLC and what I hope to accomplish this round (besides a 15 pound weight loss) is to be able to do that 20 minutes of exercise every day and get a handle on portion sizes. At the end of 12 weeks, I want to be able to continue go... Read more
It is a Journey

The BLC Fitness Test
Today I took the Fitness Test
Its very plain to see

But that's not what's to be
I crunched, I stepped, I walked, I pushed
The numbers were not good
But this is only week number one
I did the best I co... Read more

... put me in an RV with an indoor shower; queen-sized bed (with a pillow top mattress); cable tv to watch the hockey playoffs; indoor bathroom with a shower and plenty of hot water; birdies singing outside my window instead of an alarm clock; ... Read more
I do not camp
I do not sleep on the ground. I do not use the woods for private matters. I require a daily hot shower, cell phone service and wifi, and alone time sometime during the day. This should prove to be an interesting weekend. Whatever doesn't kill... Read more
Good bye loved one
You've always been there for me. Dependable, loyal, my go-to when I needed a quick decision. Through thick and thick, I always knew where to find you. Right there in the front of the closet. Waiting to be called upon, ready. But now, dear friend... Read more
And moving forward...
Baby steps move you in the right direction, just slowly. I saw a sign today that's also true about moving ahead, "a kick in the pants moves you forward". Yup. Just what's necessary sometimes. Feel free to "encourage" me that way if I need it! ... Read more
Emotional eating is something I've got to overcome. I realize that I have to be prepared for setbacks, disappointments, and tough times by taking a new route to deal with the feelings that go along with them. Now that I know this, I'm working ... Read more
Getting Honey on Board

Black bean brownies. Vegan (not that I am a vegetarian, the recipe just called for no an... Read more

I am an apple
Today, maybe for the first time in my adult life, I took measurements as I am competing in the Biggest Loser Challenge.
I am an apple, I just never knew how much of an apple.
My first reaction to reviewing the measurements was t... Read more

Yard Sale: Bye Bye Baggies
It's all going. I have bags and boxes and tubs of baggy, ugly, huge clothes that I've been saving. For what? Well, you never know. I may need them again someday. WAIT! Isn't that planning for failure? You bet it is. I really had to analy... Read more
