Celebrating Gains...

Sunday, September 27, 2015      2 comments

My weight loss journey is really more of a pursuit of health and happiness journey. Sometimes I focus on the numbers... That number on the tag of my pants, the one on that little box I keep stepping on, but it's not so much about the number. I... Read more

The Plan

Sunday, September 27, 2015      2 comments

Today I did an easy 10.8 mile hike to help get ready for my up coming half marathon. I met 5 girls, early morning, and we all had our therapy time. One of them said sarcastically, "my husband tells me other women go shopping together". One fr... Read more

I went to Italy the last few weeks of August. I walked everywhere. We walked 13-22 miles a day. I saw Rome, Florence, and Venice with a day trip to Pis... Read more

Tomorrow is a brand new day

Friday, May 15, 2015      4 comments

This morning there was some kind of texting misunderstanding between my dude and I. It started out all kissy face emoji and snugly warm, but then it turned south after I joked about something and he didn't get it that I was teasing. I think he... Read more

Be the little engine

I have new running shoes. My 14 year old gave them to me for Mother's Day. She bought them with money that she earned doing henna tattoos at the school carnival. My daughter just turned 14 and arranged everything on her own for this booth. S... Read more

Just Go

half marathon tomorrow

Saturday, May 02, 2015      2 comments

I am running the OC half marathon tomorrow. It's not my first, but it's the first time doing the OC venue and I hear it's hilly. I've done lots of running lately, yet I'm not feeling ready. I'm sort of tired from the work week. I guess I just ... Read more

I ❤️ me

Thursday, April 30, 2015      3 comments

This is my motto this year. I believe the reason my weight came off 6 years ago is I learned how to care for myself. I ate like I loved myself and I nourished my beautiful bo... Read more

Yoga Night

Wednesday, April 29, 2015      0 comments

Today is Wednesday and that means it's yoga night. I can't wait. For me, it's not just exercise, its spiritual centering. There are great messages taught at yoga, like "be in the present". If you're depressed, you may be stuck in the past.... Read more

Namaste my friend

Thursday, April 23, 2015      2 comments

Namaste... Can I just say I'm currently loving yoga. I had a hysterectomy in December and when I had the green light to work out again, I had no core strength. I was sitting in the back, hating yoga. The instructor tells the class to "define ... Read more

Here I go again

Wednesday, October 01, 2014      6 comments

Alright... My weight has snuck up. I fight it back down only to watch it sneak up more. I have had a tough year with some mystery health issues that have stressed me out, so obviously I need to focus more on stress management. I got divorced. ... Read more
