Help! I'm possessed by Menopause!
Tuesday, June 21, 2016      3 comments

My stomach has blown up, literally. Menopause has made me feel like an alien. I got a Fitbit to track walking, but feel helpless. Anyone out there going through this or been through it and have tips for defeating the effects of this on my body (... Read more
Week 2
Saturday, January 09, 2016      4 comments

I started strong week 1 but fizzled out after 3 days. When I logged on this morning and saw all of those positive messages supporting me after my last blog entry, I felt so bad for not logging on to SP for the rest of the week and missing those ... Read more
Pushing Through the Guilt
Monday, January 04, 2016      9 comments

I really just wanted to get ready for bed after the first day back to work but I hadn't done any cardio and had nothing to add to our Teddy Bear team miles. Guilt got to me, and I decided to do a 10 minute cardio video. After 10 minutes of sweat... Read more

I'm excited about the 5% Challenge and being a part of the Teddy Bear team! Today I'm thankful for the motivation to get healthy, a team to encourage me to do it, and a 35 minute walk! Playing Yahtzee with my daughter and her boyfriend after din... Read more
Closet Adventure

Today I was getting dressed and decided to try on a blouse I haven't worn in a while - And it fit! This led to 30 minutes in my closet trying on anything and everything that hadn't fit before. Some things fit well, some fit snug, and some couldn... Read more

Today I finally felt like I'm changing (just a little, but I'm changing). I've been hitting the cardio steady almost daily and using weights 2 times a week but the nutrition part has been killing me. After I had a melt down last week from ... Read more
Walk On!
Tuesday, July 29, 2014      1 comments

It feels so good to feel the sweat trickle down my back when it's exercise-induced. Doing run/walk intervals on the treadmill while watching "stuff" on my ipad even washed away the guilt of the chips/dip episode. Walk on!... Read more

I took my measurements today - first time since 2010. My 2010 measurements were stored on my sparkpeople page. I had the same waistline measurement, 2" less on my arms, .5" less on my hips. Yes, that's not much progress in 4 years, but I'm movi... Read more
That was fun?
Monday, July 21, 2014      0 comments

I just finished Week 4 - Day 2 of Couch to 5K. I'd love to say it was exhilarating fun, but I'd be lying. I made it through the first half ok, but the second part was "forced" and my mind collapsed my body. I just started walking the last minute... Read more
Steady wins the race!

Just completed Week 4 Day 1 of Couch to 5K. That last 2 minutes took some mental warfare to make it through, but I succeeded! I just changed my goal of getting to goal weight by Jan 1 (at 2 lbs per week) to doing half of that by Jan 1. I'v... Read more

Today I finished Week 2/Day 3 of C25K (couch to 5K), and it felt great. The last time I tried this was summer 2011. I made it to the end of week 6 and broke my elbow. It's taken a while to get back up from that fall, even though the fall happene... Read more

One 30 Day Commitment
Saturday, July 20, 2013      1 comments

Because I'm ADD, it's very hard for me to stick to anything for an extended time (part of my struggle with weight loss). Today, I am committing to doing Jillian's 30 Day Shred (and nothing more). I've got 59 days until I have to go back to work ... Read more
Made in Heaven Mangoes
Saturday, July 06, 2013      1 comments

Yesterday, I got to experience the tropics in Texas - in my mouth. My husband bought some mangoes from Sprouts for a snack. I'm usually not a mango person but these mangoes were heavenly. I could picture these mangoes being plucked right from th... Read more
