I'm stepping up my game and joining a new challenge community (the 5% spring challenge) to keep me on task. I've done well in March meeting my goals--good minute counts each week, decent tracking...I have generally lost weight, but only a couple... Read more
February Update
Monday, February 29, 2016      1 comments

Well, February was a slow month for me. No weight lost...yet! Exercise was lower--I don't think I got to 150 minutes any one week in February. That is partly due to laziness (yep!) and partly to wisdom tooth surgery and allergies. Foo... Read more

Hm... I'm afraid I've gone the opposite direction from what I wanted and planned. But I'm working hard to get back on track. One thing I've learned is that I can take charge of my goals and motivation. I do not have to rely on outside moti... Read more

Friday, January 02, 2015      4 comments

Well, I looked at my "Making the MOST of 2014" goals and I achieved NONE of them. I did not track 3x/week--maybe three times in 3 months in reality! I truly hate tracking. But it's good for me... I was close to 100 min each week of ca... Read more

Stage 1b. So... the easy option would be to take the good habit implied in my last post... why sleep is important and why I should be more diligent in pursuing it. Rather, I am going to focus on sugar, since that has been a weakness ... Read more

Stage 1a. Select your problematic habit you want to dismantle. List any pros/cons for ridding yourself of it, or how keeping it will escalate and affect you. To make changes, we HAVE to be convinced we want to change. Understanding WHY we hold o... Read more

So BLC21 is ending soon--this was my 3rd (4th?) session in a row. It went really well, and I enjoyed my team. I will likely take a break from 22 since my summer plans are so uncertain. Maybe moving, maybe not; maybe a new job, maybe not... Someo... Read more
