Dear Fast Food, You are clouding my food tracker!
They say that admitting it is the first step....I admit it. I totally caved and ate lunch from a drive-thru window. And let me tell you, I did not make wise choices or eat anything that remotely resembled a vegetable or fruit. Sure, I could have... Read more

Renew Day 2!
This week I started over from scratch with my goals. Went camping the 1st week of June, and when I pulled up those pictures on the computer from my camera, I almost had a heart attack! I could not believe the woman staring back at me was, in fac... Read more
Right now, I do not know how I failed to miserably at being me. I was doing so good last year, made a lot of new friends on SP, kept up with challenges, was eating right, getting in fitness minutes every day....then....major fail. My life went t... Read more

Something Good, No...GREAT About Me
It has been a long time since I looked in the mirror and picked out something I like about myself. I can point out inches and miles of what I don't like or what I'm not happy with...but it was a great mental and emotional challenge.
I truly... Read more
I Got My Zumba On!!
I had the best time - and it pushed me past my limits, but it was worth every drop of sweat...and boy did I sweat! If this was something I was doing at home, I would have given up after 30 minutes, but I wanted it too badly to give up tonight. I... Read more
Better a Tight Budget Than Tight Pants!
I'll be brutally honest and throw this on the table...shopping for healthier food is the hardest thing I have to do every week when we have a shoestring budget. I struggle ... Read more
I love you pedometer!
I am addicted to my pedometer. Honest to goodness, gotta have it every day. My favorite part is to see how many glorious calories I burned all day. Today I burned off the cheese from my salad, the chocolate milk I had to have, the extra granola ... Read more
My Easter Week Behavior Contract
For the Twilight Challenge this week we were asked to write our Easter Week Behavior Contract...so here goes.
The week itself is not going to be the problem - I will be totally fine because we have nothing (and I mean nothing) going on besi... Read more
The Day I Broke Down & Ate Candy
Started off innocent. I am not a chocoholic or a cookies, cake, or ice cream kind of girl. It does not appeal to me. What does is pure sugar - like Skittles, gummy anything... Read more
The Only One
This whole last week, I have really challenged myself to make the best choices and to get as much exercise as I can. It dawned on me today - that there is nobody outside of my computer that is doing this with me. I am just me, solo, alone, singu... Read more
In my dream I was RUNNING!!!
Not just any kind of running, actually stretching and warming up for a MARATHON! Can you believe that? I almost couldn't believe it!! I have not physically run just for the sake of running since I was young. I dreamt I was with a friend (who was... Read more
Does this office make my butt look big?
There are days that I ponder this question. I have a sit-down desk job. I work with 99.9% women who all bring in treats, bars, cookies, danish, coffee cake, ice cream treats, dips, bagels and cream cheese, or whatever else they have concocted or... Read more
Last night I was ranting and raving that I can't seem to stay on a good streak of healthy lifestyle. My partner told me that everything I see as a 'failure' or when I fall of the healthy wagon, is not as bad as I think it is. She said something ... Read more
