Skipped ANOTHER day...
BUT - I digress...I did 4 hours of work outside, at least 2 of which was raking leaves and hauling them across the street. My legs are howling, my dogs are barking, I feel like I earned my keep today! I will sleep like a baby...as long as the ... Read more
Skipped a day...
AND now I'm dreading the workout! LOL My legs are sooo tight, which is a good thing. But, I know I have to do the workout, I am just procrastinating in the WORST way possible....I don't know if I can put it off much longer. It's 20 minutes..... Read more

30 Day Shred
So, I got Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. I watched it last night (yes, I watch them once first so I kind of know what to do ahead of time) and I was sort of stressing out about it since I saw it! I kept putting it off, and putting it off today... Read more
Oh that number....
I think I gained this week. I don't go by my home scale - I weigh in weekly at TOPS. But, if I go by my Wii Fit and my home scale, it seems as though I'm going to have a gain. OH MY but it stresses me out to think of that gain. Where did I g... Read more
Something I was thinking about yesterday...
There was recently an article in Marie Claire magazine that came under huge fire because of what the author said about overweight people. She had made some disparaging comments, indicating that seeing overweight people repulsed her...I am not t... Read more
Fake it 'till you make it...
That was actually some of the best advice I have ever received! I have been full of cynicism as of late...I'm sure the stupid blood clot, baby being in the NICU and not released, etc etc etc are things that contributed to it all, but that isn't... Read more
Stressed, but dealing with it in a good way!
Yes, you read it right. I am the QUEEN of anxiety and stress - it's like I thrive on it, even though I don't! But, today has sure been a doozy. Well, instead of eating myself into a food coma, I did stuff with the kids to calm myself down, an... Read more

Slow and steady...
I am an all-or-nothing kind of gal. Go back into my blogs and look - I am sure I've said this many, MANY times before. So it is HARD for me not to have INSTANT results when I start something!!! INSTANT!!
It is frustrating to me not to ... Read more
What a week...I need to fix this!
This has been quite a week! It started on early Sunday morning, when I woke up not being able to breathe because of horrible sharp pains in my shoulder and lung. It turned out I had a blood clot in my lung. (Lucky me) Then Saturday I was back... Read more
My updates from my SparkPage...time to start anew!
I didn't want to delete these updates that I had on my SparkPage, but I also need to start all over again with new goals, so I'm moving these old ones into a blog post, and sprucing up my SparkPage. With everything going on, it will likely take... Read more

Taking time for me?
I have heard about this all-elusive "me" time that people talk about. You know what I mean...that time that is spent JUST on yourself. Well, either I am not very good at it, or I just don't really want it (which is likely the case) but I can't... Read more
Today has been so incredibly lazy! I guess we all need one like that time and again. I've just been sleeping and watching TV. I will take advantage of these last few weeks to take the opportunity TO relax since I won't be able to do much of th... Read more
