The green eyed monster
Boy, have I had a hard time lately! I know I should never compare myself to another. My journey, my way. But, I have found myself lately comparing my activity to another friends. I am more consistent. I don't skip days and then binge the next to... Read more
Now with HFCS on the bottom!
I'll admit, I grew up on the stuff. I loved it! What a treat! I still bought it on myiwn. Even bought those gimmicky, limited edition flavors too. EVEN when I started to learn better and went on my weight loss/health journey, they still found th... Read more
Knowing when to say when
I worked it last week! Two charity walks, new workout video, extra hours of helping at my daughter's school. I even took an extra walk or two.
Now the new week begins...and it's damp out. I tried to run. My hip had other ideas. Sigh.
Today... Read more

Don't tell anyone... I'm hiding out at my local coffee house. I have dishes to do and my daughter's laundry to put away. I also stayed up till 11:30 last night finishing up my daughter's costume for her school play. Today was my weekly hour or t... Read more
I logged onto FB today and saw a friend reveling in losing 4 lbs. Now I should be jumping up and down congratulating her...but all I felt was uneasy. She was on a juice detox diet. Sigh. Another fad. I know exactly where the weight loss came fro... Read more
I have lost my cred...

A cold thrown wrench in the works!
This time of year is infamous for colds. I'm used to this...until now. My poor daughter has had one ailment after another. She spent half of her Christmas vacation and the first week back to school sick. Now my husband is sick too! With one slig... Read more
Okay soapbox time! The myth of spot reducing. Arrrgggghhh! 5 minute abs, 20 minute thighs... Don't we wish! Yes these workouts do target these muscle groups, yes they help to tone these areas, though a body perfectly sculpted of steel shall not ... Read more
Running for my life :)
I have been running. It's amazing that I can even say that I have been! Last year, same time I was barely making it walking to my daughter's school and back. I was out of breath, sweaty, struggling. Now a year later, I'm down 45 pounds and am st... Read more
I'm @ 102 down now. Woo hoo! But darn it all if I don't feel like the Blob. My stomach is so much flatter, though I swear I have to pick it up and place it into my pants. And my thighs! I sit down and they ooze out onto the seat! I know that I'm... Read more

An ah, ha moment
Okay all, I had an ah ha moment. This week I have been having such a time getting into my workout groove. I've been spotty and completely inconsistent. I felt like I was never going to get back to my old schedule until the Duck was back in schoo... Read more
