I hate you & you WON'T win! Just Sayin'.
It's been a year since I recieved the diagnosis of Hypothyroidism and a year of taking medication for this dreadful condition. I hate you (the disease) because I never wanted to be on medications on a regular basis. I hate you because I had been... Read more
Today is why
It was a gorgeous day out today. The sun was shining, not too windy, a little cool but nothing I needed a jacket for. And, since it is the only day I'd be getting home at my normal time, I thought, "what a wonderful day to walk with the pups".

Wow! I can't believe it's been a whole month since I last blogged. Thanks to some computer issues and being so busy with the better weather, I haven't been on as much.
I am so looking forward to the upcoming spring and summer activities tha... Read more
"The Last Great Race"
In case you're wondering, "The Last Great Race" is the Iditarod. The yearly race is held in Alaska (in honor and remembrance of The Great Serum Run, when there was no way to get medication into the tundra to save lives other than by dogsled) and... Read more
Imagine, if You will...
You're excited because for the first time this winter, you're feeling great and the conditions are perfect for a dog-sledding adventure. You wake up, energized for the day. Your huskies are happy and just as eager as you are. You feed them and l... Read more
What do you see???
The weekend is officially here. And, there are lots of things I'm thinking about today.
First of all...a BIG, ... Read more
This morning, I awoke to roughly 4-5 inches of snow out on my balcony. I looked out at the yard and all the evidence that the dogs had been outside, that cars had been parked and left for work, etc...not there. So, I pottied the dogs and noticed... Read more
Cardio...The Unwanted Way!
This morning, my stepdaughter wanted to walk my female husky. I usually don't let her because she likes to run...if given the chance. But, I said she could take Maya for a walk. A few minutes later, I saw my stepdaughter with her phone in hand, ... Read more
I read a blog today where someone was talking about their journey. Their suggestion/strategy is to "forget" about the weight they've already lost and reset their goals to start from today. That is an excellent strategy because it breaks down the... Read more
Feeling Awesome Today
Today, I woke up and made a point to eat especially healthy all day. Sometimes I eat a late breakfast and then won't be hungry to eat lunch or it's almost lunchtime, so I skip breakfast and wait until lunch. So, I made a point to not skip meals.... Read more
The weekend of the Great Thaw
So, this past week, our weather turned out to be quite a heat wave after having twenty additional inches of snowfall than our normal amount at this time. To put it in perspective a little bit, my backyard consisted of a 5 foot tall snow mountain... Read more
Let me start by saying that my stepdaughter is driving me crazy.
First of all, she's been overweight ever since I've known her. (And, so was I, so that's not the point but just the background info.) The two of us set goals to lose weight to... Read more
I'm going to figure this thing out...once and for all!
After a few good days in a row, I was beginning to feel encouraged that maybe those "don't feel good" days would be few and far between. This past weekend, I had plans on both days. And, on both days, I didn't feel good at all.
But, I got ... Read more
I joined spark people over a year ago. And, as I was following the healthy eating and fitness, reading articles and blogs, joining spark teams, etc, I was looking forward to a healthier me. I have learned so much along the way and applied a lot ... Read more

Who knew I'd be doing this for more than just myself?
So, after years of not seeing my father's sister, I had found her and regained contact. After visiting her for the holidays, I returned home. A few days later, she asked me in a phone conversation how I lost the weight because she has a friend w... Read more
