We went to a wedding last night. It was that of a very old friend and we ran into other old friends and had an utter blast! I was nervous, because wedding food can be very fatty, and I'm only two weeks in to my no sugar, and though most da... Read more

Okay, not entirely true. Now that I'm back on the bandwagon, I realized I really need to start training for the 5k's that I have coming up. SO, I went running last night. I was REALLY nervous because of my knee. I didn't want it to be wo... Read more

Last night, I was watching a DVR of Extreme Weight Loss. It was interesting, the 2 people doing the weight loss were overweight, but didn't look THAT overweight. He was 6'5" and she was 6'. They were both former athletes. After they had ... Read more

I've been trying to blog daily (I often skip the weekends because of the busy life) but yesterday, I was so busy and didn't have time. The weird part, even today I can't think of things to say. I'm doing really well, giving up sugar ag... Read more

How to learn... because I'm STILL doing it.

Wednesday, June 24, 2015      6 comments

It really isn't easy to learn how to be in this. This fight of weight loss. It takes the same learning curve that anything else does. There will be successes and failures. I'm getting there. Because I had such a hard time recently, I ke... Read more

I've got two days in a row of workouts completed, 4 days in a row (not including today yet) of my at least 10k in steps, and 5 days (including today) of healthy eating! Plus, I'm here. That always makes things work. I'm not completely out ... Read more

Well, my near completed blog got erased... so I guess I'm starting over! HA. The weekend started Friday... so did my healthy eating. I decided to just start rather than wait "Until Monday" because nothing good comes from putting it off. ... Read more

Last week was insane. Between a wedding, 2 family cookouts, my daughter's birthday and subsequent parties, and a very painful knee injury, I was exhausted, hurting and then the hammer really fell. I first met my old friend when I was in 7t... Read more

Yesterday, I kept thinking of things to blog about, but then had no time to write the blog. Then, when I HAD time, I had no thoughts. So I'm getting this out of the way, so to speak, while the thought is in my head. So, Sunday, I don't kn... Read more

Yesterday, I was all about balance, and doing things for my health. So. I have been craving chocolate for a few days (things are close... you know) and I tried ALL of my tricks to avoid eating a treat. Finally I thought to myself. ... Read more

My weekend, my plans, my goals, my results

Monday, May 18, 2015      12 comments

Well, I'm very grateful that I have spark on my cell. Yeah, the APP isn't as great as getting online, but I can track my food and exercise and make sure that I'm on track. The reason I like it, is because I can get it and do it quickly, especi... Read more

Friday, May 15, 2015      12 comments

As many of you know, I took a sabbatical (or completely fell apart) for nearly two months. My eating, exercise, everything fell apart. But, even though I gained back a few pounds that I lost, things are changing. I'm gaining back ... Read more
