I Did It!!

Monday, May 26, 2014      6 comments

Last year around this time I set a goal for myself to participate in the 2014 Bolder Boulder 10K. Three weeks ago I went online, signed up and committed to it, officially! Today, full of emotion and more than a little afraid of trying to w... Read more

10K, A1C and Me

Saturday, May 24, 2014      6 comments

I recently went to the doctor for my yearly physical. Well, the results were not really a surprise, but they were not exactly what I wanted to hear. My blood sugar is high - 107, and my A1C is 6.2%. So I'm considered to be pre-diabetic. I will n... Read more

A New Week For Me

Monday, January 13, 2014      3 comments

I have a goal. I want to walk, run/jog, the Bolder Boulder. This means I need to train. This means I need to get off my backside and walk. There is no Facebook post, no game of CandyCrush, no television program or movie that is more important to... Read more

I purchased my Fitbit in early 2013 with Christmas money. I've had a love/hate relationship with it. I love it when I use it. I'm more motivated, energized and optimistic. But, when I don't use it I hate it! It sits there in the drawer nex... Read more

Merry Christmas!

I haven't been as on top of things as I wish. I've over indulged and have not exercised much lately. Once again, no good reasons, I just haven't done what I know I need to do. I'm struggling a LOT with sugar right now. It's not the holiday... Read more

Make No Excuses and You'll Have No Regrets!

Thursday, December 05, 2013      5 comments

On September 12th, at 2:00 in the morning my husband and I were evacuated from our Lyons, Colorado home because of an immediate and certain threat of flooding. I had no idea how my life was about to change. I had no idea that I would never get t... Read more

So Frustrated With Myself!

Monday, August 26, 2013      2 comments

Why do I make such horrible food choices? This morning - a 580 calorie Honey Bun. And for lunch - 660 calories worth of garbage at Burger King!! So I have a maximum of 310 calories left for the entire day. UGH!! I rationalized those purcha... Read more

I ended up taking two recovery days this week, but I was determined to get out and get my walk in tonight. I bought some new shoes today and at 6:00 I put them on and out I went. I stopped a couple of times for a breather and to snap a couple of... Read more

Recovery Day

Friday, August 23, 2013      2 comments

I feel like I should be out there. Training. Walking. Exercising. But I've over done it the last few days and my coach said I need a recovery day. So I'm listening and doing ... Read more

A Little Too Much!

Thursday, August 22, 2013      1 comments

I'm one of those All or Nothing kind of people, especially when it comes to exercise. I go gung-ho for several days and then end up sore or injured and then can't work out or walk for a while and then end up giving up and dropping out altogether... Read more

Day 3

Wednesday, August 21, 2013      3 comments

I have a yellow Post-It on my monitor at work with a red 3 in the middle of it. It's day 3 of my new program and I'm happy to report that I'm ahead of the minutes of walking my c... Read more

I've Got a Goal and I'm Not Giving Up!

Wednesday, August 21, 2013      3 comments

For a good portion of my life I've been giving up, on myself. There were several reasons for giving up, but, in truth, none of them were very good. Okay, so they weren't really reasons...they were excuses. I'm tired of making excuses why I can't... Read more

Nice Day Today

Wednesday, March 06, 2013      1 comments

I had a good day today. I was productive at work and that's always a good feeling. I'm still not sure what my fate will be with the layoff coming at the end of this month, but I'm confident that I will be okay no matter what. I'm trying to stay ... Read more

I spent four whole days worrying about something that I had no control over. I prayed, I cried, I fretted and stewed. I made some assumptions that turned out to be incorrect, too. Did it doing me any good? Not one bit. However, it ca... Read more

It's not who you are that holds you back, itís who you think youíre not.

I remember one Sunday afternoon when I was in 6th grade I was up in my room trying to find a way to make my thrift store wardrobe even a little bit stylish. I had on a button down shirt and I had tied it a little above my waist. It wasn't high b... Read more
