Milestone: Today, I Jogged!
I decided to change up my routine at the gym this morning. I usually hit the elliptical for 30 minutes and do my thing. But since Saturdays I go with my hubby, I wanted to do something different and work out next to him. So, I jumped on the t... Read more
"God doesn't make mistakes"
I can't tell you how many times I heard that as a child. I heard it from my parents, sunday school teachers, school teachers in my Christian school, friends, etc. "God doesn't make mistakes". So easy to say. For me, impossible to believe.

BUSY weekend.... out of town, gambling, and a circus!
Well, first.... GOOD NEWS! Hubby and I finished up with the bank Thursday evening. We got the loan, and are starting the new business! This is very exciting for us as hubby already has work lined up with several clients, but we couldn't do an... Read more
More self image correction
Tonight my hubby and I left our 3 yr old with my folks and had a little date. We finally checked out Texas Roadhouse and thought it was great! With a little research I was able to order a delicious dinner that still fit into my calorie goals. ... Read more
Clothes and a changing self image.
So I found a lady on Craig's List selling 1x-2x clothes. Set up a time to meet, and went over there today. She has just lost 60 pounds, and the clothes were all in beautiful condition (you can tell they were transition clothes and she didn't ... Read more
For some reason, I continue to see myself as a size 4x, "buy the largest size available" girl. I intellectually know that I just sold all my 4x tops because they looked like dresses and tents on me. I 'know' that I have a stack of too-big pant... Read more
No gym, but I did get a bad hair cut fixed!
WooHoo! Friday's are typically a rest day for me from the gym. I try to do something active with my little one since it's my day off from work. But today was all about errands.... a CRAZY expensive and loooonnnnggggggg grocery shopping trip to... Read more
Habit vs. Will power
I have amazing will power. Seriously. I can grin and bear nearly anything.
During root canals, my dentist has told me that it's amazing I was able to go so long without treatment, as my teeth were horribly inflamed and painful. But I ha... Read more
Ugh.... SO GLAD to be back to my usual routine today!
I had my game plan all set for yesterday, and theoretically, I did really well. I didn't track my food, but when I guestimate it, I'd say I still stayed within my calorie range.
Breakfast was my usual oatmeal, then we headed off to church.... Read more
My Easter holiday game plan!
This is my first major holiday since I got myself back on track in January. I've gone back and forth about how to approach the meal tomorrow, and all the goodies and treats we usually do. But I think I've come up with a plan that I'm okay with... Read more
Stress, illness, and unemployment
Today was my husband's last day of work. We learned a month ago that his department was being eliminated and he was being laid off, but today was his last actual day. There is no other job waiting in the wings. We have some ideas and plans ab... Read more
Back to the gym I go!
Today my fever was gone, and I was able to get back to the gym! After being out nearly a week with a terrible sinus infection and fever, I was going stir crazy! Not to mention the lower back aches from just sitting or laying. I'm still not f... Read more
Under the weather
Just a little check in. I have come down with a terrible cold. The kind that is all in your sinuses... when I sneeze, I feel like my eyes will pop out and pain is shattering my nose. Yep... super fun. Add the aching ears, sore throat, and lo... Read more
Crazy busy weekend
So much for my idea about having a relaxing, restful weekend. I haven't been feeling great due to my period (headaches, back ache, and cramps always hit hard) so was thinking it might be a 'curl up in bed with a book and heating pad' kind of we... Read more
Trying to not be dissapointed in my monthly measurements
Today was the day for my monthly measurements. And in all honesty.... I'm disappointed. My shoulder and chest measurements actually INCREASED a small amount. All other measurements went down a modest amount.
My trainer was pleased with... Read more
