5K training is still going well. I'm not buying soda for the house anymore. I will drink one at work - one 7.5 oz can of coke. My head hurt a lot at the beginning of the week, but isn't bothering me as much now. It's just something that I ... Read more

Today I changed the battery in my fitbit so that it's working again. I also made plans with the neighbor to go for a walk every day at 2pm. We're starting tomorrow, because I switched shifts at work today. So now I'm going to go do some clean... Read more

I went away for awhile, but now I'm back. I think life just got a little too crazy. Things are settling down into a nice routine. One of the biggest changes I made while I was gone, was to change jobs. I had worked in the school system for 7... Read more

progress made

Wednesday, October 23, 2013      2 comments

First of all, I turned off my fitbit connection to SP. I didn't feel like it was accurately recording my real exercise time. It recorded every step that I took as exercise, and it inflated my numbers. It just didn't feel right to me. I do wa... Read more

I'm super proud of myself for seeing a goal all the way through. On Sept. 15th, at the end of a day when I did NOTHING, I decided to go for a mile run. I took my son along and it was sprinkling, but I did it. Then I decided to make a goal of... Read more

Today I ran a mile. I asked my 11-year-old son to go to the high school track with me, and we ran a mile. It only took him 8 minutes and it only took me 15 minutes. I'm okay with that. I haven't actively ran since my first year in college, i... Read more

I'm still here. Now that it's summer, I'm the last person that gets to use the computer. Thanks to Mine Craft and Animal Jam, when we're at home, the kids are taking turns using the one computer that we have. But that's okay, I realized somet... Read more

It's June 13th, exactly one month from my birthday. I'll be 47. I always have to count to make sure. :) I've been working on lots of changes. Can you believe that I've even forgot to write down the nightly walks I've been taking with th... Read more

A real appetite suppression

Friday, March 08, 2013      6 comments

I voiced my opinion today. I haven't been hungry since. I voiced my opinion to my boss. He has a tendency to yell and scream. I like him, he's a great guy, he's a passionate guy, but he yells a lot. He called us all into a meeting to ... Read more
