I just want "it" to click again. I feel like I know everything I need to be doing, but I somehow can't manage to get it to 'click'. First, my husband did the grocery shopping yesterday because I am feeling like crap. (Looking back at 201... Read more

A New Year Filled with Possibilities

Thursday, January 07, 2016      2 comments

2015 was probably the most difficult year I've been through. So many 'ups and downs'. I am not prepared to share the 'downs' of the year, but the ups included celebrating the first year of our marriage, buying our 'forever' house and surviving... Read more

So, today, it's a blustery 4 degrees. I got ready, had oatmeal with a banana in it with my cup of black coffee with a splash of organic half & half (the other half and half at the grocery store has all kinds of additives in it-- I expect milk &... Read more

Well, I ended up with the flu, a stomach bug and a cold... It took just about 40 days to get over all of the junk, all while ignoring myself. Of course, it's really difficult to jog or run when you're wheezing and hacking up a lung, so I guess t... Read more

So. My lowest weight using spark people was 147 pounds. Even at that weight I didn't feel confident. I never posted physical pictures of myself because I was worried what people would think. These are just a few of my issues. I used t... Read more

I feel good. 9 days into July and I’m hopeful I can maintain this lifestyle change. The exercise minutes are important to me again! I want to earn them—want to sweat—want to push myself to see just how much further I can go… Nutrition has b... Read more

Same ol', same ol'... I'm frustrated with myself, irritated with everything and just all around stuck. I will have a great few days and something will throw me off and I wallow in my bad mood or try to find the answer at the bottom of a binge. I... Read more

Wake Up Call

Woke up this morning... weighed myself. Thought I was going to cry. Most I've ever weighed in my life. But instead of wallowing in my weight. I did something about it. I took all my measurements. I tracked them on here. I started a cleans... Read more

It's March 9th. And I've gained. I've ignored my body. I've been oblivious some days. I've been abusive other days. Cramming food into my mouth isn't going to solve any problem, it's only going to create more... I'm pretty sad today. More d... Read more

Saturday, November 16, 2013      7 comments

So, this week wasn't my finest. Got some fitness minutes in, but I didn't do so hot in the kitchen department. I would start out well and then lose momentum at dinner time. I've been trying to pick apart what happened this week. Read more

First Week Back...

Monday, November 11, 2013      4 comments

I started last Monday. The time change helped me out, I suppose. I was able to get up early and get a work out in. I was able to stick to waking up earlier all week. I told myself you can skip 1 day if you're sore or tired or overwhelmed, but yo... Read more
