Building a Better Me
Ok, so the last week of this journey hasn't been quite what I wanted it to be. I would beat myself up for it, but that is really not productive at all. The downside to the week was that I had to deal with TOM, which makes me feel like I'm starvi... Read more
Making it real
It's time for me to make it real. I try to stay upbeat and keep a positive attitude, but faking it will only take you so far. It is time for me to strip it down and be honest with myself. I am not advancing toward my goals the way I want or shou... Read more
This is something I came across quite a while back. I just felt the need to share it this morning. Some days when I get really frustrated, this helps, especially on the days when my weight loss journey doesn't seem to mean anything to him. I kn... Read more
I'm an Avocado....hmmm, who knew?
Ok, so I am reading this article this morning about 'ideal' weight, bmi, and body shape. I had never done the waist-to-hip ratio because I 'assumed' from the description of body shapes that I had read that I was an apple. Turns out I was wrong. ... Read more
Lemon Challenge-Week 1
Week 1 challenge is to list 5 things that are holding me back.
1. Me. I doubt myself and give up too easily. My boss is always pointing out to me that, when I want or need something for my store, I take 'No' for an answer too easily. He is ... Read more
New month and new look at life

Ok, so I broke our bed this morning. I barely moved to turn the alarm off and there is this loud pop and the corner of the bed drops! I was mortified!! At first I'm thinking maybe the little slat underneath had just slipped off but, upon further... Read more
Randomness with a bit of rambling
I feel like I have been MIA the last couple of weeks. I have been here every single day, but not really ‘here’. I track my food and workouts, but have not really been very active. I have felt like I am letting my teams and myself down. With ever... Read more
Sleep makes me tired?!?
Ok, so, everywhere you look, you see talk about how important sleep is. We need 8 hours of sleep every night and that is supposed to help make us feel better. So why, if I sleep more than 6 hours, do I feel exhausted??? I have tried and tried to... Read more
Frustrated and Positive!
Well, today's weigh in was a bit discouraging. 1 pound. It stinks! HOWEVER, it is 1 pound in the right direction. That means I have lost 22 pounds in 41 days and only have 8 pounds til my short term goal of 30 lost by my 18 year class get-togeth... Read more
PUMPED and I gotta share!
I am so pumped right now! I could get used to this 6am 'hot & sweaty' me!! I EARNED this sweat!!! I am on Day 33 of this journey and have only missed about 3 days of exercising, but today is different. I did walk/jog interval this morning and, i... Read more
Let me tell you how my morning started. I finally bit the bullet and started the 28 Day Bootcamp. Then I got scared. What if I can't stick with it? Can I really keep up with doing it everyday? I already exercise every morning, but can I really d... Read more
I just need to get my thoughts out. I am stressing tonight and I know if I get it out I will feel better.
Today started out rough. I got really frustrated with myself for no good reason. Basically my inability to make my mind and my body a... Read more

What does it mean to be truly DONE?
I am still new on this journey, still learning to listen to my body and trying to incorporate all that I am learning into my everyday life. But I know I am DONE!
