Winning....Against the Candy Jar

Friday, July 11, 2014      2 comments

On June 10, 2014 I posted a blog title "Baby Carrots vs Oreos" and in it I stated that the candy jar at work is now off limits. I am here to report that 30 days later I stayed out of the candy jar, except for yesterday. Here is why, I live in ... Read more

Me vs the Scale

Thursday, June 26, 2014      3 comments

I have battled with my weight from as early as I can remember and have had the same battle with the scale. I went years without weighing myself because I just couldn't face it. That has not changed even when I reached my goal back in 2010, as ... Read more

It is time to Dig Deep

Monday, June 23, 2014      4 comments

Last week I saw my therapist. It was a tough session but one I needed to have because we discussed some things that were hard for me to hear. One of the things was how she felt like I did not fully commit to the things I am working on. She ... Read more

Baby Carrots vs Oreos

Tuesday, June 10, 2014      3 comments

I read an interview with Rosie O’Donnell several years ago where she said (and I am paraphrasing) “Of course I should eat the baby carrots, but I want the Oreos.” She went on to say something like, if it were that easy, then the obesity proble... Read more

A Tale from Emotional Eating Mountain

Thursday, June 05, 2014      2 comments

This morning when I was getting ready I started to think about writing this blog because of how my day went yesterday. What popped into my head was this question, “how often is what you are feeling really hunger?” I answered myself almost im... Read more

I'm a PF Chang's 1/2 Marathoner

Friday, March 14, 2014      3 comments

So the year before last I thought it would be awesome to do a half marathon, and I started to train but then for financial reasons, I just could not make it work. So, this year when the time rolled around to start training, I was determined to ... Read more

What weighs more?

Thursday, November 14, 2013      4 comments

What do you think weighs more, brain weight or the physical weight? Sometimes I think it is both, but most of the time I think it is the brain weight. What I mean by brain weight is the weight that holds us back from shedding the physical wei... Read more

It is harder then you think

Friday, August 09, 2013      3 comments

I always say that losing the weight is the easy part but I am beginning to realize that it is a lot harder then that. Anyone will tell you that losing weight should be simple, the formula is pretty basic, eat less, move more. But if it were ... Read more

Giving in to get somewhere..

Tuesday, May 28, 2013      5 comments

Last week I did not make healthy eating and fitness a priority, or even a before or after thought. I ate candy from the candy jar on my desk like there was some sort of shortage. I only exercised once, and I am surprised I managed to do that. ... Read more

What do you do when you are stuck?

Friday, April 26, 2013      3 comments

You try to get unstuck, right? I have been stuck behind the finish line of my life for many years now. I get almost there and then I get stuck. I decided that this year was the year I was going to get unstuck, I am going to attempt to cross ... Read more

Tracking: the good vs. the bad

Monday, April 08, 2013      2 comments

Last week I posted two goals on my feed, one was to stay out of the candy dish at work and the second one was to track my food every day. I stayed out of the candy dish (by the way, the candy dish is on my desk and I am the one that keeps it f... Read more

Sunday, March 03, 2013      3 comments

I love to exercise outside and in AZ several months out of the year it is hard to do, meaning I don't exercise outside when it is over 100 degrees!! Yesterday I decided to enjoy the warm weather and try a new location I have driven by a million... Read more

Father Joe's Villages Thanksgiving Day 5K

Friday, November 30, 2012      6 comments

I decided last year that I would make it a tradition each year to do a 5k on Thanksgiving morning. This year I was in San Diego. I knew my son would not get up early to do it with me so I asked my 9 year old nephew to do it with me! He kept ... Read more

It's the most (you file in the blank) time of the year...

Thursday, November 29, 2012      2 comments

I struggle with what I think is a form of SAD (season affect disorder). Only it is not because of the lack of light, or whatever, it is a lack of something, something I feel I am missing as the holiday's approach and the year comes to an end. ... Read more
