I did my weigh in this morning and I'm down 4.8 pounds and 4 inches! That gave me the push I needed to stay on track. I went on a 5 mile walk (in strong wind I might add. We're having gusts up to 40-60 mph) and did my exercises. I'm feeling a lo... Read more
Hanging tough
Tuesday, March 07, 2017      1 comments

I had another good day today. Yesterday I logged over 12,000 steps and today's total was just under 10,000. I'm actually looking forward to my weigh in tomorrow. I feel like it will be just enough to keep me motivated. Fingers crossed!... Read more
A pleasant surprise
Monday, March 06, 2017      4 comments

I was not as faithful as I should have been this past weekend. I went over my calories and under my steps. I woke up determined to start my week out on the right foot, so I reluctantly decided to step on the scale and assess the damage I had don... Read more
A small step backwards
Sunday, March 05, 2017      2 comments

I slipped a little bit on my calories and haven't made my step count for the past couple days but I have been able to do all of my exercises so I still consider that somewhat of a win. Normally, if I miss something, it makes it easier for me to ... Read more
My virtual mission
Saturday, March 04, 2017      3 comments

I found an app on my phone that allows me to take a virtual walking trip. I'm walking from my home in Michigan to Tampa, Florida. My grandma used to live near there and I always loved going there when I was younger. Being an avid walker, I'm rea... Read more
Not as good as I had hoped
Friday, March 03, 2017      2 comments

Today didn't go as well as I had hoped it would. I got called in for a strange shift at work and wasn't able to have a lunch like I normally do. I did however think ahead and brought a few healthy snacks with me so at least I was able to have so... Read more
It's definitely a start
Thursday, March 02, 2017      1 comments

Well, my first day back at it went really well. I stayed within my calorie limit, did all of my exercises and logged 12,718 steps. It helped me feel exhilarated and made me feel ready to get started today. So far I'm close to 8,000 steps and the... Read more
It's time to get serious
Wednesday, March 01, 2017      4 comments

It's been almost 2 months since we celebrated the new year. I started the year the same as every other year and ended up failing, just like every other year. I could list all the reasons why I didn't stick with it but it feels like they would ju... Read more
One day at a time
Sunday, January 15, 2017      3 comments

This back injury has really gotten me off track. I have not hit my step goal since Wednesday. I'm not trying to get too far behind but I realize the danger of pushing myself too hard. With that in mind, I will continue to take it one day at a ti... Read more
Time to rest

So my back is still bothering me but I managed to make it through another work day. Unfortunately, it's bothering me so much tonight, that I felt it best to take tomorrow off. That will give me a 4 day weekend. I really think that will give me a... Read more
Just not my day
Wednesday, January 11, 2017      5 comments

Today was just one of those days. It started horrible but I managed to survive it. Before work, I fell on the ice and hurt my back and shattered my favorite water jug. Somehow, I also managed to meet my step goal but my exercise goal is shot unt... Read more
Striving to make the necessary changes
Tuesday, January 10, 2017      2 comments

So I missed writing a blog yesterday because I fell asleep early. I did really well with staying within my limits and I met my step goal. I also reached another goal. A couple years ago, 1 of my spark teams recommended a book called 52 small cha... Read more
All about the family
Sunday, January 08, 2017      2 comments

Today I decided not to be as aggressive as I have been lately. My son and his girlfriend wanted to make dinner and just have the whole family spend the day together. We did just that. It was nice to just enjoy each other's company. I still mana... Read more
Officially 1 week
Saturday, January 07, 2017      5 comments

It has now officially been 1 week and I'm still on track. Normally, by now, I have begun to lose interest or tell myself that I'll just do better tomorrow. I haven't weighed myself in yet and have pretty much decided to hold off on doing that un... Read more
Much better day today
Friday, January 06, 2017      1 comments

After slipping a little bit yesterday, I did much better today. I stayed within my calorie limit and met my step goal. I went shopping with my husband and got many of the foods I wanted to have on hand to make healthy meals. I even made out a me... Read more
