"Down" & "Up"
I am so "DOWN" because my weight is "UP." I have gained 19 of the 33 pounds I lost 2 years ago. I can't talk about my weight and how I feel to people sometimes; they just can't relate or don't agree or understand, so I'm blogging it here.

Help! Help! Help!
I can't seem to stay on program! Question is, why? I've done this program before and had such will power and determination. Now I just feel like a failure. I need to get to the bottom as to why and deal with it.
Reflecting back, I have... Read more

Disappointed, but Thankful.
Today finds me disappointed, but thankful. About what, you ask? Well, I have been training to run in a half-marathon in June of this year. Well, my training is over after the doctor told me that I can no longer do long distance running. I ra... Read more
Not "There" Yet.....
Well, I still have not reached my goal weight of 133. In fact, I was one pound away from reaching my goal and then gained a few, lost a few, gained a couple, lost a couple. I guess it could be a great deal worse. On the bright side, I am stil... Read more

Did I Blow It?
Not sure why, but I have really struggled this week with mindless eating. I have also noticed an increase in my appetite. Notsure why, but NOT good! I tend to beat myself up for blowing it on Valentines Day too. For reasons that would take t... Read more

Ever have those days where you just aren't motivated? Just don't want to measure all of your food? Just don't want to track everything you put in your mouth? Drink your water? Exercise?

I Think I Have Hit "The Wall."
As a runner, I have heard about the dreaded "Wall." I think I may have hit it; at least the way I have heard it described to me anyway. Anyone know what I'm talking about? I have had days where I could run 5 or 6 miles with no problem, and us... Read more
Together, We're Unstoppable!
Okay, okay, I'll admit it....I like the music of the Fresh Beat Band; a band that exists on Nick Jr. I home school my grandson and we watch episodes of the Fresh Beat Band sometimes for exercise (cuz we get to dance), music, and learning. I lo... Read more
