For those of you who were worried... just a reminder, I AM working with both my doctor and a nutritionist/trainer. It's not some kind of a ultra-low calorie diet just to drop weight fast. In fact, my nutritionist told me to back away from m... Read more

I've decided to make a full on 100% commitment to making a complete lifestyle change. Whatever I was doing, wasn't working. I was spending 2 - 3 hours 5 days a week in the gym while working with my trainer and nutritionist. I've also yo-yo... Read more

Here's the thing... I'm fat. Got it. I know what has happened. I know why I'm where I am. Do you? I'm guessing not. Unless you're a very close friend or part of my family then you've got no idea. I'm a very private person and don't fee... Read more

We lost our minds... One thing on my bucket list was to someday own a ragdoll. I just love so many things about the breed and what is said about them I've found to be true so far. My almost 6 month old princess Lily... ... Read more

Monday I tweaked my shoulder. It was acting up so bad it hurt just to breathe. I didn't sleep well at all and was lucky I was able to drive to work. So, I took yesterday as a rest day. But today... I'm pretty proud today. Despite my in... Read more

Journaling and making it work

A while back I mentioned starting a bullet journal to help me out. I did. And it worked for a while. Then, all of a sudden, I realized that it had become a burden. I was racing to keep each day done. It was something I HAD to do. It w... Read more

So today, I did my 5 flights of stairs again (1 flight = up and down). That's not my NSV though... Are you ready? I did them wearing jeans I couldn't zip up a week ago! ... Read more

Today is my rest day. Menu for the week is planned. Food prepped and ready to go. I just wanted to share the quote I heard today. It was during the wrap up of my meditation session and it really spoke to me... Regardless of how others... Read more

Despite it being a Friday, it's not been a good day. A coworker that I thought was a friend that I've worked with for the last 12 years turns out to be a backstabbing ass. That's never a good day to discover something like that. *sigh* Good... Read more

Another day, another heat advisory alert. We're in for triple digit heat index through the weekend. Ugh! So far I've been doing okay and only had to do 1 breathing treatment so far. I'm being cautious. Believe it or not, the weather folks actual... Read more

Today was our company picnic, so it was yet another challenge to face. I think I did mostly okay. I stayed away from the chips and dips and that type of food. I did have a hot dog and hamburger though. I had a side dish of nappa cabbage salad. I... Read more

Busy lab day and a farewell luncheon for a good friend and colleague today. It was a little bittersweet! I chose carefully at the resturant and kept my calories in check. Not perfect but pretty good! I was a little high on carbs but under ... Read more

Back again... I took Sunday as a rest and planning day. Today was a good day. I managed to get in an extra set, so today I did 10 flights of stairs. I was a little high on my calories today. Hubby had a craving for chipotle and brough it ho... Read more
