Feeling pretty good...
I over-did my calories today And sodium. Bad choice in dinner. Well, it was not HORRIBLY un-clean, at ... Read more
On a roll!
Granted, I did have a stomach virus this week which meant I ate precious little one day & a little more than that the 2nd day, but I did lose 2+ pounds this week and I doubt that it was ALL due to the virus. Some, okay, but my hard work is payi... Read more
isn't really an excuse... but it did force me out of my eating plan and exercise plan for today
I was ... Read more
There will always be an excuse
to mess up. Last week it was my kids' birthdays... had to celebrate, right? Last night it was our anniversary (we were offered free food at many a place). I did okay last week, overall, but I was a little bit disappointed that it wasn't bette... Read more

For Clara's birthday today, I'm getting back in gear (again) - I wonder how many blogs I've written like that! But enough is enough. Here are my new goals for the remainder of JUNE...

I'm glad I can't count all the times I've gotten back to this game - the game of living healthy. I say "game" not because I don't take it seriously... au contraire! I say game because I win and I lose, I play strategically and I fly by the sea... Read more
How many times can you
a rehtorical question, really. I am realizing that I've been "back" to sparking, clean eating, exercise, etc. multiple times. But I guess you get back on the wagon as many times as you fall off... right?

Coming to grips
So I finally faced my demon face to face: I admitted to myself, to my husband, and to several close friends that I am struggling once again with depression. I've been diagnosed with depression 3 times. Each time I didn't realize it until I'd ... Read more
2 days down
Clean eating in control all day today and yesterday. I weighed in yesterday at 157 pounds UGH! That's up 8 pounds from my lightest weight (in April or so last year). I think that was the kick in the pants I need.
Last summer I saw a wom... Read more
In my quest to keep honest with myself (and my 5 pound weight gain), I made my measurements today. I'm up from my last set (5 months ago), as was to be expected. I'm okay with it - empowered really - to make a fresh start. Here they are:

Two days down...
Ate clean 95% of the time... I did a great job today - only had a few gummy bears when my blood sugar got low. Overall - great effort. Had a TON of veggies too - every meal except breakfast. We're out of egg whites now - so I won't have veggi... Read more
Today is December 15
Didn't jump on the wagon on Dec 15, but I'm ready now. I'm having a hard time getting sleep, unfortunately, so I'm not doing great in the exercise department. I ate pretty well yesterday, and today I'm off and running again. Since I don't hav... Read more
The start of a new year...
Last year (December 16 to be exact) I started my journey into healthy & clean living. I lost 30 pounds. I defined my shape. I felt powerful. So powerful, in fact, that I started to slide. And here I am, a year later, 27 pounds lighter and t... Read more
Slowing Down... again
I was doing GREAT with the exercise before Thanksgiving! Yippee!!! I felt great, a little sore, but good sore. Pushing myself and feeling strong.
Then the kids got sick - croup - 4 nights up in the steam room and outside, in the steam ro... Read more
