I'm on day 11 of Whole30. It's a detox type diet...let me just say that I'm not big on fad diets, but I really don't see this as a fad diet at all. The purpose is to get all of the refined, processed, junk out of your body. I'm ALL for that! Th... Read more
This morning while getting dressed, and dealing with the clothing drama of finding something to wear that fits me right now...I got an unexpected surprise. I had bought a pair of "motivator jeans" awhile back and I happened to run accross them. ... Read more
Finally getting that spark back
I'm back at it...somewhat afraid to blog or be "visible" here on Spark People, for fear of jinxing myself. (not that I really believe in that sort of thing)
I am coming back from a very difficult couple of years, and I managed to gain abou... Read more
So last week I didn't track, I didn't exercise, I did nothing! It felt crappy!

I was getting ready for a memorial service this afternoon, when I put on a pair of flats that I have and they just felt tight. It seems so weird that my feet would get fat right along with everything else, but they do! I also tend to be a person... Read more
2 pounds GONE~moving along!
I weighed myself this morning and I lost 2 lbs for the week. Not to shabby for losing 7.5 last week. I knew that the number would be much lower. I am thrilled to say the least! Going down is the idea, so I'm moving in the right direction! What ... Read more
FOUR days in a row! Might seem measly, but in my life right now, this is huge for me! Not only that, but I'm getting that urge to do more and more. You know that feeling where you've gotten in your "quota" for the day, but you're so motivated to... Read more
Exercise *is* fun!
This morning I got out on the River Walk with one of my very best girlfriends. She has been with me throughout this whole journey, (all the ups & downs) and I am so thankful to rekindle our "exercise flame"!
In the past year, we both hav... Read more
Here I am again. Thought I might write a big blog about the reasons that I have slipped back into bad old habits again. In all honesty, I don't even want to go there now! I want to move forward, upward, and ONward! Leaving it ALL behind me! So i... Read more

Why does Monday seem so appealing as a "start" date? And where does the "start" part fit into my life if this is a lifestyle change and not just another quick fix diet fad?? Monday or not, I'm giving it my all today...notice that I said today... Read more
Too long gone!!
Too, too, long!!!
You might ask where I've been? Hiding out; yup, that's my MO lately! This has gone on for way too long!
Tonight I was crying to my hubby, AGAIN about how I feel like a failure. Also, how I "feel" like it's impossible ... Read more
