Consistency has always been an issue. Why, because I could tell my DH I don't have time to fit exercise in and because he loves me he would agree. (He is a smart man.) But, now he sees how happy I am that I have not broken my streak for three... Read more

Putting the vision collage together has been a painful process. I completed this process many years ago and sure enough, I was able to accomplish those goals. What do I want to be when I grow up, again? At >50, really hadn't given it much thou... Read more

I seemed to have reached my plateau, again. This is the annoying thing about weight loss. This is when I usually lose my motivation, but not this time! I love walking and jogging, could do it forever - many miles. But the thing is, my b... Read more

Yesterday was a good day, walking 5 miles in 30 degree weather on ice covered snow, hoping not to fall and break something. We have a different sense of fun, now with both of us being >50. As we walked in a park neither of us had ever been to ... Read more

I saved up calories today so I could have a Ben and Jerry favorite. IT WAS NOT WORTH IT!! I think I have worked really hard to clean up my eating habits. I take in a very minimal amount of sugar. Only soy milk for the most part and low fat ... Read more

There are times for us all when we think we can't go on, but we have the option to give up or keep on keeping on. Working as a nurse I see bad outcomes and good. It keeps me honest and helps to keep my problems in the right perspective. ... Read more

Making it through the first week of bootcamp required a lot of determination. I had days when I was squeaking the time in just under the midnight hour. I checked in with my workout buddy as often as I could. We both felt we needed to be held ... Read more

Completed Day One of boot camp. Hopping is not the best thing for >50 y/o knees, but did the best I could and then some before toning it down. The smacking of skin on skin was disgusting, and I sort of looked around to see who that could be. O... Read more

Ventured out into the winter wonderland for a haircut. The main roads weren't too horrendous, had to travel about 5 miles to find that out. But made it safely there and back. The gym is in the opposite direction from the salon. Choose no... Read more
