Woo Hoo--Challenge Day 8
Whew, I made it to day 8--an entire week! I got in my exercise every day. Stayed on track with my diet. Boy, did I want some bread yesterday. Or chocolate. Chocolate would be nice. I did manage to get to bed at 10:30 every night, but that's not ... Read more

I Have A List
Confession is good for the soul, but is it good for motivation? I confess I've been doing horribly. There, I said it. Iím still floating just below 200 and still off track. I know what works for me. I know what doesn't. I know what to do.

Whole 30, Yes I Did It!
Yes, I did Whole 30. The entire thing. It's a nutritional reset, so when the 30 days are over you're still eating whole foods, adding one new food at a time. Here's what I learned:
I lost 7 pounds. I could have lost more, but I wasn't exerc... Read more
Just sitting here and thinking about comfort food. When someone asks what you feel like eating do you think of the past and comfort food? Or is it something we only turn to for solace and warmth?
For my mother-in-law, food was love. She pou... Read more
You Can't Always Land On Your Feet!

14 Day Streak -- Results
Steph-knee asked how we all did on our 14 day streaks and I'm pleased with my results. I had two mini-streaks. To walk everyday and to eat out only once a week.

We got snow! Two days of snow. Snow that sticks to the ground and hangs around all day kind of snow. The roads are covered with snow. We don't get that very often. They say that the Charlotte Douglas Airport measured 8 inches of snow. We're a bi... Read more
Cousin's Cancer Is Spreading
Sorry to be depressing, but if I don't say anything, I'll end up depressed and eating my frustration. I don't do that ANYMORE! I'm forming a new habit. I don't have to let my emotions rule what I eat. Okay, so I'm not going to tell everyone I me... Read more
Struggled Through January
My back hurts. There, I said it. I've been dealing with this since I went to Florida in the beginning of January. A long car trip and sleeping in beds other than my own and my back is not happy. I've been exercising less and trying to be careful... Read more
