My goal is to work on keeping the end goal in mind AND the realization that all the steps between here and the goal are related. No, I cannot expect to eat that doughnut/cheeseburger/corn dog/pint of haagen daz strawberry ice craem and still re... Read more
Yes, it's true. I suck. Well, at the moment anyway. This winter (which seems to have been going on for at least a year and a half), I came down with a nasty bit of cold or flu and totally fell off of the "eating well" wagon. And I haven't go... Read more
Knowledge is power.

I really am slow, sometimes...
Sometimes, I really am slow. See, I know that eating well and exercising are things that make a drastic, positive difference in my life. And yet, I finished off a tub of ice cream last night. And yet, I haven't been consistently tracking what... Read more
Picking up Speed
So, I had planned to start slow in the New Year and I have. I've had a couple days where I ate well all day, then in the evening I worked quite diligently at making sure left-over Christmas goodies where being, um, removed from the house. (I a... Read more
Slow Start in the New Year
There new year is here and it's the time when a lot of people get super fired-up to be healthy, eat right, exercise and lost weight. Though I do indeed need to lose more weight, I am resisting the urge to get gung-ho about it. I know myself. ... Read more
Brand New Day
Today is a brand new day. They all are, yes, but today feel a little bit different. I am attempting to put my house back in order. Maybe if I do that I can start to put myself back in order. Today, at least, I think I'm going to try.... Read more
There is a fine line between wanting and not wanting in which people are able to accept all they have and find gratitude for it. I have long felt that as long as I was not wanting, then I was happy. Content. One cannot be happy when they spen... Read more
You gotta' have goals, right? Or, at least that's what the guidance councilors always say. The more I think about it, I realize that I have LOTS of goals. Some or quite practical but others are random and nearly absurd. I wanted to make a li... Read more
Just like the bluesy standard, no matter how long it takes, success feels just as good when reached at last! Today is a day I have been waiting for for a long time. Recaping my journey, I put on over 40 pounds when I was pregnant with my kids... Read more
I have decided that I do not have a cold. I was going back and forth between thinking it might be a cold and thinking it was because of pollen in the air (except I really am not known to have pollen issues), when I read something interesting. ... Read more
I hate getting sick. It always leaves me with too many decisions to make about how hard I keep on keeping on and how much I rest so I can feel better. Friday, I only ran and did not go to the gym. It was a very rough run. Instead of doing my... Read more
Gym, gym, gym.
I love the gym. Lately, however, there has been a change at my gym. They are building a new, huge gym--set to open in about two weeks-- which will replace two of their current locations. In the mean time, one of the locations has already clos... Read more
I want to be sexy, again.
So, I'll admit it. I'm totally shallow. I don't just want to be healthy and active and all that. I want to be sexy. Darn sexy! I'm working on it, but I have a few worries. Like, the total sag that is going on in my belly and boobs. How lo... Read more
Keep on Keeping On.
Well, my knee hurts and my ankles are a bit stressed and my calf is sore and my hammie is strained--I feel like Little Peggy Ann McKay! But, I've been keeping on and it doesn't seem to be too bad. I took a rough turn when I skipped a running ... Read more
