Yesterday, I went WAY over on my nutritional balances. But you know what, I'm just not guilty.
I'm an on-again, off-again Sparker, I admit it now. Actually, this time around I "relit the Spark" because I woke up one morning looking great, s... Read more
Who's standing in my way?
"Most barriers to your success are man-made. And most often, you're the man who made them."
- Frank Tyger
This morning, the above quote was facing me in my "Healthy Inspirations" e-mail from Spark People. It really gave me something to... Read more
Tired of cigarettes
That's right ... I'm tired of cigarettes. And probably tired, because of cigarettes, because of all of the oxygen they're depriving me from. And tired of waking up coughing in the morning, reaching for the very thing that continues this yucky cy... Read more
Ordering off the "light" menu ...
My husband called and asked me if I wanted dinner out last night as I was shopping. As I'd planned on picking something up on the way home, anyway, it didn't sound like a bad idea. I'd just watch my selections, as I am working on trying to bring... Read more
Large? Ha ha!
Over the weekend, I was going through a few clothes I'd picked up at the women's shelter thrift store some months back. When I'd made the purchase, it was with the anticipation that I would be losing some weight, and they had a fabulous sale of ... Read more
Going to meet my goals today
Well, here it is again, that blah time of year when the weather's changing daily (who am I kidding, anyone else here in East Texas knows it changes by the minute!), and my poor body just can't keep up.
This week, I'm off to a slow start on ... Read more
Old goals ... New goals
This month, I've found that I haven't had much progress on some of my old goals, like quitting smoking, but I have found some success on new goals, such as my pedometer. And while I definitely haven't given up on the old goals, now I'm working o... Read more
Let the sun shine in ...
The skys have cleared, the deluge is over, and by the end of my lunch-break walk, I'd met my 5,000 step goal once again. Back on track!
Now onward to better things ... like what surprises the weekend has in store. The husband and I have des... Read more
Rain, rain, go away!
Here it comes again ... those deluges that make our days harder, and all I want to do is stay in bed. ... Read more
Day 2: Pedometer
I'm really beginning to like this thing!
Today, I have learned what a big difference a minor change in your activity levels can make. I took a 40-minute walk on my lunchbreak at work, found a really pretty creek down the country road behin... Read more
Day 1: Pedometer
Over the weekend I purchased a new pedometer. I was a bit slow getting into the swing of things this week, so Monday, it was at the house, but today is my first day with the pedometer. I started the day without a real "goal," the plan was to tra... Read more
It's time for a reset.
I bought a pack of cigarettes today. For those of you who have been following my blog entries about my attempts to quit smoking, you know how proud I've been of not caving in to the cravings during times of excessive ... Read more
OK, you can give up now ...
Whatever is trying to break me today, I call "Game Over."
I win, I've already decided that. So you might as well give up now. No need to carry this on any longer.
I've been training a new person at work for about three months now. I re... Read more
Not unless you have a mighty tiny ...
(Warning: Before I go any further into this blog there will be one mild, thinly veiled expletive used in this blog. If anyone might find this offensive, please stop reading now.)
It was an interesting morning. The hubby and I were both in o... Read more
Raindrops keep falling on my head ...
Yes, it's raining again. Seems like the soft pitter-patter, or even tumultuous sounds of a downpour, are about all I hear these days. We've had pretty steady rain for about four weeks now, and it's just gray outside. About the only thing good I ... Read more
