What a Day, Times Flies, and All That Jazz

Monday, March 02, 2015      6 comments

I had one really busy day today. I got the girls to the hospital to pick up their paperwork for the summer volunteer program. I was able to video chat with my DH in Lyon and look over his pictures of Paris. I got to the Y and broke the 14.... Read more

Here we are at the beginning of a new month. February was short, but very sweet for me. I started the month at 348.8 lbs. I'm not sure where I ended it it as my weigh in isn't until tomorrow night, but as of last Monday night I was 333.4 lbs. pu... Read more

Looking Forward to Enjoying Life

Tuesday, February 24, 2015      5 comments

I'm getting the hang of socializing while maintaining my lifestyle changes. My Dear Husband came home from work ready to hit the gym so we went on an active date. We rode bikes side by side and I resisted the urge to compete with anyone but... Read more

Monday, February 23, 2015      6 comments

As I was commenting on a blog today, I noticed my response was quickly growing into a blog post of its own. I really love strength training and I want to tell you why. Although you don't get that sticker shock award for burning huge amounts of c... Read more

Tonight we had another movie night tonight with special food. Our friend brought a dish made from a Thug Kitchen recipe: Roasted Brussel Sprouts and Quinoa with @$!#/ Cranberries. It was delicious and better for me than the Buffalo Chicken Garba... Read more

Making Progress

Thursday, February 19, 2015      2 comments

I had a great workout while the girls went to their first spinning class. Then I went and locked the only key to the Pacifica in the car. Part of the problem was I had too much to carry and couldn't feel my fingers, even with gloves on. Thank go... Read more

A Weekend of Adventure

Wednesday, February 18, 2015      3 comments

I'm finally getting a chance to sit down and write after a four day weekend with all three kids and their friends at home. Besides the temptation of Valentines Day in general, my husband wanted a party with guests and snacks and party food. The... Read more

A Different Kind of Workout

Friday, February 13, 2015      4 comments

This will be the first time since I started that I really true meant to go get my cardio in, but didn't. I feel like I have already hit that minus the wonderful feel good endorphins. I'm worn out. I did the shopping for the next two weeks for my... Read more

It's The Simple Things That Make The Struggle Worthwhile

Thursday, February 12, 2015      7 comments

This is going to sound strange, but I've found another way to measure my progress. I managed to get two loads of laundry rolled down two flights of stairs and then made several trips carefully wading through the basement to run both of them. I c... Read more

Persistence Pays Off

Tuesday, February 10, 2015      4 comments

I had a strong finish to a blah day. I woke up tired ad drug my butt all day. I did manage to get down into the basement to run laundry, which is a real hard thing for me. It's a regular mine field down there and I can't effectively use my cane.... Read more

Goals In Sight

I've had a very full and wonderful weekend. I got all my errands done and managed to get in my full strength training Saturday and a good cardio workout on the recumbent bike on Sunday. I'm improving on stamina, but I really want to get my... Read more

Keep at It Because Sometimes It's Just Hard to Get Started

Friday, February 06, 2015      1 comments

I didn't sleep very well last night. I never sleep as well after one of my light days. I woke up groggy and achy after a very restless night. I kicked myself in the pants and waited for my girls to get home to make sure I was properly motivated ... Read more

Finding Joy in the Job of Getting Fit

Wednesday, February 04, 2015      2 comments

I got to the YMCA tonight before the snow started. It was great to have my two daughters and adoptive DD with me. They have been incredibly supportive. I'm having a great time. My workouts are less work and more gratification. I love each time I... Read more

We are Not Alone

Tuesday, February 03, 2015      3 comments

February has been great so far. I feel good, and I'm ready to carry on with new and expanded goals. I can't emphasize enough what a treasure the SparkPeople community has been. When you have as much to lose as I do, you get overwhelmed by doubt ... Read more
