Saturday, August 19, 2017      2 comments

Took a short break from journaling while at orientation for school. I am so excited about getting back into classes. I found it pretty easy to stay on track while away. I think I'm at my first plateau, can't seem to break the 14# mark, but th... Read more

Had dinner at my in-laws tonight. No low-carb options available, so I was careful about my portion sizes. Overall, stayed pretty close to plan today. Grateful for today, Laurie... Read more

Not much to write today. Had a busy day at work. Ate dinner out with Keith and Mikayla. Animals are all fed and put in for the night. Time for bed myself. Grateful for today, Laurie... Read more

Took the dogs for a walk with DH tonight. I have been wanting to walk for the past few nights, but for one reason or another, got distracted, and then it was too dark. Not tonight! Had dinner with DH at the table, did the dishes and took off ... Read more

Keith and I had a wonderful time at the conference in Colorado. This last week it was just the both of us because Mikayla was at camp, so I decided to make our dinner time a little more special. Each night we were home alone, I made dinner, se... Read more

I had such a proud momma moment today. Our youngest daughter went to her last high school dance camp this week. She auditioned and was invited on 3 dance trips, one to Hollywood, one to New York, and finally to Disney as an all star. I couldn... Read more
Day 36 - feeling confident
Thursday, August 03, 2017      3 comments

Since starting back on my journey to a healthier me, I have found myself coming out of my shell. I cut my hair and got highlights. I am dressing in fun clothes. My eyes are sparkly. Today, I had no foot pain. None. I found myself walking a... Read more
Day 35 - 5%
Wednesday, August 02, 2017      3 comments

So, I had my CPR recertification today. This required me to get down on the floor, sit on the floor, perform chest compressions, and sit on the floor some more. There was a lot of up and down. I realized that I was able to move pretty easily.... Read more
Day 34 - no foot pain

Nope, feet didn't hurt today. Walked down the stairs like they never hurt at all. Hmmm, I could get used to this! Cautiously optimistic for a trend. Grateful for today, Laurie... Read more
Day 33 - the scale went the wrong way today
Monday, July 31, 2017      3 comments

Well, it was bound to happen sooner or later. Today, instead of creeping down, the scale crept up. Not a lot. I'm guessing my splurging over the weekend contributed. Honestly, I was surprised since I still feel smaller. I guess I probably a... Read more
Day 32 - the morning after
Sunday, July 30, 2017      2 comments

Yesterday was Brewfest. I love Brewfest. It's fun to try a new beer that you wouldn't try at home. I tend to be a taster and dumper, meaning if I don't like it, I dump it and move on to the next instead of finishing it before moving on. It t... Read more
Day 30 - the pants
Friday, July 28, 2017      5 comments

I realized today that I could pull my jeans over my hips without unbuttoning or unzipping them. Woo Hoo! Non-scale victory! Tomorrow is Brewfest. I love Brewfest. I'm going to give myself one day to splurge in moderation and then right ... Read more
