Eat to Live

Monday, April 29, 2013      7 comments

I have heard so many people on spark talk about this book "Eat to Live" it seems a little extreme but I think I need to get back to basics. I have been so focused on "not gaining the weight back" that I think I am sending that message out to ... Read more

I met with my trainer last week and I feel really good. My plan for the week was to track everything I ate and to measure everything. I am working towards measuring everything better but for now I am doing the best I can. Today was tricky. I... Read more

Meeting with my trainer

Wednesday, March 27, 2013      3 comments

My zumba instructor is a personal trainer. I feel like she has become my therapist. Poor woman! I usually see her about 4 x a year just for a little check in, she does a fitness assessment to see where I am at cardiovascular wise, strength (p... Read more

My week was so-so. I ended up a pound. I don't really think that is a true pound gained because I feel like I ate too much sodium this week and I didn't drink enough water this weekend. My workout mojo has been non- existent but i have made i... Read more

I have been having a great week and a half. I feel like I am back into the swing of making good choices, setting goals and reaching them and seeing progress on the scale (at least the right direction- lol). So now I am looking a head to this w... Read more

1/2 lb down and I feel great!

Monday, February 11, 2013      9 comments

Ok- I met all of my goal last week and I was rewarded with 1/2 lb down on the scale. That may not seem like a huge accomplishment to some but I am really happy with that. 1. It was not a gain!!! 2. I went back to lifting weights 3 x this we... Read more

I reconnected with a scrapbookers blog (Cathy Z) who is so funny. She is so real about life. We are just about the same age, have been married the same amount of time and yes both struggle with this weight thing. I hadn't been on her blog in ... Read more

I gained weight over the holidays- shocker! I partied too much, worked out too little and did not make time for my healthy habits. Is that the end of my journey? Heck no! My former self would have just thrown in the towel but there is no way... Read more

Feeling very blessed

Saturday, December 15, 2012      4 comments

I got to hug my kids when they came home from school yesterday. That is all that matters, right. My heart is breaking for the families in Conn and elsewhere that are unable to do that. I can't even imagine. I have my health, I am activ... Read more

A friend at Zumba has literally had weight falling off of her right in front of my eyes. She looks tremendous. Our instructor has made a big deal out of me- I am even on her website as a success story. She just posted a before and after shot ... Read more
