New motivations

Saturday, November 12, 2011      0 comments

We just got pictures back from our son's wedding, and I'm actually pleased with how I look. I never like pictures of myself, but these turned out OK. Added to all of the compliments I got at the wedding and since, and I'm feeling pretty good a... Read more

We got through my son's wedding!

Monday, September 12, 2011      0 comments

My son's wedding was on Saturday, and it went beautifully! We had a perfect day - 80 and sunny. Really unusual weather for northern Minnesota this lat in the season, so we were very fortunate. It was an outdoor wedding, at the top of our ski... Read more

A dreary, rainy day

Tuesday, July 19, 2011      0 comments

This is my week of vacation, and it's not turning out how I'd planned! I took a week off mainly to potty train our two new puppies (cute as little teddy bears!), and to clean house and get some things done in the yard. On Friday night my so... Read more

Enjoying the Supreme Workout!

Sunday, July 10, 2011      2 comments

This Wednesday I'll be halfway through the Supreme 90-Day workout, and I'm enjoying it so far. I can tell I'm getting stronger, especially in my arms. I can do more push-ups, with better form, and faster, than before. I can also use 10-pound... Read more

Stumbled on my week of vacation

Friday, June 24, 2011      1 comments

I'm just coming off a week of vacation, and I didn't do so well with my eating! I went to my Mom's for 4 days, where it's always hard not to over-eat. She always has sweets, big meals, and too much good food! And worst of all, being around a... Read more

Going strong on the 90-Day Workout!

Thursday, June 09, 2011      0 comments

Today is day 10 of the Supreme Workout, and I really like it! I've done a workout every day, skipping the rest days they've had on the schedule, just because I haven't felt like taking a break that day. I usually take Fridays and Sundays off, ... Read more

Day 5 of the Supreme 90-Day Workout

Saturday, June 04, 2011      3 comments

This is my fifth day following the Supreme 90-Day workout and diet, and so far it's been going great. The workouts are tough, and I think would be challenging for anybody who gives it their all. Stronger people will use heavier weights, and e... Read more

Committing to the Supreme 90-Day Workout!

Tuesday, May 31, 2011      1 comments

I have just over 3 months to my son's wedding, so I'm starting the Supreme 90-Day Workout and diet. I haven't been losing much weight lately, so I'm trying something different with my workouts and diet. This diet means you eat six times a day... Read more

Let's try this again!

Wednesday, March 09, 2011      1 comments

In my last update, I was determined to start losing weight for my son's September wedding. But somehow, the added motivation backfired on me. As sometimes happens when I have an extra incentive to lose weight (like our cruise last year), I put... Read more

"In training" for the wedding!

Monday, February 21, 2011      3 comments

My son proposed to his girlfriend this weekend, so of course, my second thought (after being so happy for them!) was that I now have one more reason to lose this weight once and for all. I'm looking at this as being in training, just as if I we... Read more

Finally Friday!

Friday, February 18, 2011      1 comments

Well, this has been a long week, so I'm glad it's finally nearly over. And I'm so happy to finally be free of the extra pounds I put on over Christmas! I never thought it would take me so long to take these off, but now I can start moving forw... Read more

What choice is there, really?

Thursday, February 10, 2011      0 comments

Last week I was feeling down because I gained 8 pounds over Christmas, despite my determination NOT to do this to myself again! I was stronger against the temptations than other years, but still...I stood strong against all the Christmas cookie... Read more

My goal for this week: More time on Spark!

Monday, February 07, 2011      1 comments

Well, I haven't been as active on Spark as I'd like lately. It seems like I got busy before Christmas, and haven't really got back into it even when things quieted down. Today is the day!! I've started logging my calories the last few weeks, ... Read more

Paying the piper

Saturday, November 27, 2010      1 comments

Well, after two days at my Mom's eating turkey, pumpkin pie and all the fixings, it's time to face the consequences. Today I'm four pounds up from last week, five pounds from my goal for the week, and the extra eating has given me the urge to e... Read more

A good day

Saturday, November 20, 2010      0 comments

I'm feeling good today, for a few different reasons. For one, it's my weigh-in day for the challenge, and I made my goal to lose a pound this week. That's always a good thing, because if I don't make my goal I have to pay $10 to my ... Read more
