I weighed 179 this morning. That means I am 9 pounds from the goal I set a year and a half ago. I feel truly blessed. I have worked hard and consistently to achieve this goal. I earned it and I rejoice in it. Good health and fitness are mos... Read more
It's Working!

For the last week I have been eating at the low end of my calorie range (about 1250 cal) and getting in a minimum of 10,000 steps a day by doing several "pocket walks" daily as well as continuing my walk/jog program. Sounds simple, right? Well... Read more

I have been trying different things to get off my plateau and so far no breakthroughs. Although I must say I am staying between 183 and 185 instead of 188. So that's a good thing. I know I am exercising enough and with enough varied activitie... Read more

I posted a blog last week about Sitting Still While Running about my several months’ long inability to get out of a 5 pound plateau even while changing food, calories, exercise and general routine. I received a wonderful response from my Spark ... Read more

I am keeping a weight between 183 and 187 right now. I seem to bounce around those numbers with no rhyme or reason. I can eat well and exercise well all week and see 187 on the scale. On the other hand, I can eat too many calories and not bur... Read more

I've been taking university classes on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. We have to leave the house at 8 and don't get back until noon. It has been difficult to get in my c25k training so I have decided to modify my schedule. I am going to do c25... Read more

I went to a friend's Birthday Party yesterday, so we didn't go to the cabin for the weekend. Today was all mine. So what did I do! I got up late. Sparked. Then I made a vegetable omelet which I don't usually do. I took my dog for a 2... Read more
It's Never too Late to Learn

I've had a good January and I've learned some things about myself. Since I've been at the same weight for several months, I decided to shake things up a little so I joined 2 challenges. I joined the 5% Winter Challenge and was a proud Teddy Be... Read more

I have gone down another size and really need some new clothes, but I've been sick and haven't been able to get out and peruse the thrift stores. Yesterday I had some unexpected fun. For my first foray out since Christmas, I called a friend an... Read more

Its a quiet, lovely Snowy day in northern Colorado. DH got up a few minutes ago and opened all the blinds so we have gorgeous views of the lightly falling snow and the Rocky Mountains. We are sitting in our robes, drinking coffee and reading t... Read more

I am still sick but I am not down. I am congested, coughing and tired. I have a huge cold sore (yuck!) but I am not down. I can't go out because the cold air triggers my asthma, but I am not down. I haven't been getting in my 10,000 steps a ... Read more

Being sick the first week of the New Year has allowed me a little time to contemplate where I am with my new lifestyle and the results are pleasing. I eat emotionally much less frequently now. I want to increase my awareness of when I am t... Read more
