Being able to laugh at myself

Wednesday, June 25, 2014      3 comments

So yesterday after work my brother "trainer" called and asked if I wanted to meet him at the gym at 8 p.m. Sure, no problem. I thought we would get in our 24 minute cardio, 15-20 minutes of strength and home in under an hour. Yeah right. Th... Read more

Fun in the sun and other nonsense

Saturday, June 21, 2014      2 comments

So earlier this week, the scale did not match how I felt. I felt thinner and that everything fit better and that scale just didn't agree. This morning however, when I weighed in for my 5 percent challenge, it showed another 1.5 pounds down! Y... Read more

Humble brag!

Monday, June 02, 2014      3 comments

OK, not so humble. This post is all patting myself on the back. It's not really about weight-loss, rather about my health. For a little more than two years now my health has been in a downward spiral. I added 70 pounds or so to my 5'4" frame. I ... Read more

Need to give thanks to God, despite a crummy day

Wednesday, May 28, 2014      1 comments

I woke up stuffed up. A bit of a headache. Generally not wanting to drag myself out of bed. But I was able to drive to work on site, safely. Then I had to argue with Travelocity for half an hour to get them to refund me my money for a hotel ni... Read more

Elaboration on struggles

Tuesday, May 27, 2014      2 comments

I realized I should have elaborated on some of my struggles. I am down 10 pounds so far in 5 weeks, and I realize that's awesome. But let's face it...almost all of that was lost during the cleanse phase in the first week and a half. Since then I... Read more

Some struggles and a bout of the stomach flu

Thursday, May 15, 2014      3 comments

I have made pretty good food choices but my meals too large and not doing enough healthy snacking to curb my appetite between meals. I also caught a nasty stomach bug that has made my appetite touch and go and my ability to keep foods in slightl... Read more
