6 weeks in........confessions and truths

Monday, September 15, 2014      3 comments

It's been 6 weeks since I've recommitted myself to a healthier lifestyle. I've had some highs and some lows. I didn't weigh myself when I first started. I think maybe I underestimated my weight by about 5#'s. So when I started using the scal... Read more

New Motto

Put good in, get good out. It's been a long time since I've eaten the right kinds of foods and believe me I've felt it. I've haven't felt this sluggish in a long time. But today is day 3 of eating better. I'm starting to notice that I feel s... Read more

I've reset all my trackers back to zero. I'm ready to start again. This time I'm going to get my family in on the fun. We bought a scale a few days ago and everyone was surprized to see how much more they weighed then they thought. I knew wh... Read more

Time to face the music

Monday, September 12, 2011      1 comments

I haven't stepped on the scale in a very long time. I've been afraid to face the truth that I've completely fallen off the wagon and gone back to my old ways. I know by the way my clothes fit me or better yet do NOT fit me that I've probably g... Read more

I bought the plane tickets this morning for Morocco!! It's like a huge weight has been lifted from me. Now I can spend the next month shopping for gifts, paying the bills ahead of time and packing. I'm so excited to be "going home".... Read more

In one month's time

I've got about a month before my hubby and I leave for Morocco. At least I think we're going. He has a habit of changing his mind every other day. I've already asked for time off work, 5 weeks. I've been searching for flights but being tha... Read more

Treading water

Monday, July 11, 2011      2 comments

Who knew it burned so many calories? I couldn't believe it when I was adding it to my cardio tracker for the day. 30 minutes of treading water burns 645 calories. My family and I swim everyday, weather permitting. Our pool isn't great ... Read more

Body Language

Tuesday, July 05, 2011      1 comments

My body has been talking to me lately. It's message is clear. I've slacked off far too long and gained back way too many pounds. The heartburn that I had under control has returned. The feeling of being full all the time is also back. If my... Read more

It's the 4th of July and here I am at work. Our emergency room is fairly busy too. We still managed to get in our typical "hog fest" ie: potluck lunch. I tried not to eat too much and so far I've done ok. We had chili dogs, fresh fruit, taco... Read more

The Fourth of July has always been somewhat of an insignificant Holiday to me. As a kid it meant fireworks and BBQ's, swimming and friends. My birthday is a few days later so it was really like a reminder to me that my birthday was coming. ... Read more

Blog to self. Never. Never say never. "I diet and I NEVER lose any weight". Wrong! You did lose weight but maybe not as much or as fast as you wanted to. Always. Never (lol, broke my own rule) say always. "I ALW... Read more

Cell phone

Monday, January 17, 2011      1 comments after years of being badgered by my kids and friends about not having a cell phone I finally broke down and got one. Yes, I'm learning to text. You can teach an old dog a new trick. LOL I've had cell phones in the past but never ... Read more

I wish I were more organized, I long for organization. Every January I try to become more organized. I enjoy the high I get when everything has it's place. I eat better and have more energy when my life is not so chaotic. We're now alm... Read more

I just don't care

Last year I made goals for myself and I stuck to them for about 6 months. I lost 45#'s too. I felt great but something got me off track. I still don't know what happened. My goal was to lose 100#'s by Christmas 2010. This year I'm goi... Read more
