Me now

This is me now. Well, actually in June on Father's Day. I have joined a wellness center and attend an adaptive yoga class once a week. 2 - 3 times a week my husband and ... Read more

Head in the sand

Sunday, January 12, 2014      6 comments

I've been living with my head in the sand. At least for the past year. I've gained over 20 lbs. since last June. It has been too hard to stay motivated. It's stupid to say this, but I have regressed to binge eating. Something I had thought ... Read more

In Pain and Depressed

Monday, November 04, 2013      12 comments

Within the past few months my arthritis has started getting worse. At the end of the day when I get home from work, (no matter what shoes I wear) I can barely walk because my feet hurt so bad and my legs feel like lead. My hands are changing t... Read more

Figure it out

Tuesday, July 09, 2013      6 comments

Today I didn't do as well with my food choices/calories. I did great yesterday. I've got to forge a plan. Today: I did track ALL my calories. I didn't plan out/track all my meals this morning, which meant when I came home for lu... Read more

Not weighing in every week has been a mistake

Tuesday, July 02, 2013      11 comments

I didn't weigh myself for 2 weeks. In those 2 weeks I started out positive, watching what I ate, and began simple exercising. Well...... that didn't last long. If I had weighed myself after the 1st week, I may have thwarted the mindless eatin... Read more

Today was a challenge

Monday, June 24, 2013      7 comments

I'm still being positive, but I have to admit that today challenged me. Monday's are my day off. Today I took Poppet (my dog) and Teazer (my cat) to the vet. First time taking them together. That wasn't bad at all. However, the "girls" both... Read more

I'm Positive

Sunday, June 23, 2013      11 comments

I've decided to be more positive. the past 3 days I've had a positive attitude, and you know what? it works! I've made better food choices, and have started an exercise routine in the mornings before work. It's only 10 minutes of easy stretc... Read more

Determined To Succeed!

Friday, June 21, 2013      4 comments

I've been having a hard time staying motivated, doing well for a couple days and then binging the next day. Like yesterday. I didn't plan my meals by tracking first thing in the morning. Breakfast went well. But, lunch was another story. En... Read more

Having a rough time

Monday, May 13, 2013      12 comments

I am having a rough time. I have bipolar depression and acid reflux. My doctor upped my lamictal strength last week and also added klonopin because of anxiety I've had since last summer. This has been getting worse, so I finally gave in to kl... Read more

Wow, it's been a long time

Tuesday, April 16, 2013      6 comments

Wow!!! I didn't realize I hadn't posted a blog since January. Well, to tell the truth, I haven't been focused and committed to a healthy lifestyle for a long time. Today was the first time in (I don't even know) long time that I have do... Read more

I've been down with a bug the last 3 days, but I'm feeling a lot better. I purchased SparkCoach back in November, but I haven't used it except for the 1st, maybe.....week? Now I am ready. I guess being sick has given me perspective. I went t... Read more

Yikes! I realized day before yesterday that I've got to get my displays ready for a bridal fair next Saturday. I thought I had a couple more weeks. Yikes! Oh, and YIKES! I don't have anything dressy to wear to it that fits. Yikes! My hu... Read more

Sunday Afternoon "Me Time"

Sunday, November 04, 2012      4 comments

I had a long day at work yesterday, and my feet sure did hurt. I had packed a nutritious lunch, and ignored the urge to visit the snack machine. Had Taco Bell for dinner - too many calories, but enjoyed it. Didn't exercise, but did my stretch... Read more

Halloween Candy Binge

Thursday, November 01, 2012      9 comments

Okay. I did well with my food choices yesterday. Until...... after dinner. All day I had told myself that "no, you are strong enough to resist it". I felt empowered. But the funny thing? I started to obsess about it. So, I caved. Baby Ru... Read more
