Staying the Course
I am the closest I have been to meeting my goals in almost 9 years. I have had a couple of previous times where I achieved a decent amount of weight loss and got fitter. This time though, it the longest duration I have kept at it, and I think it... Read more
I Ate a Cookie
In and of itself, I ate a cookie. So what? Well, I have not been feeding my body cookies lately - and let me just say this, my body did not like it.
I don't know when it happened, or perhaps even how, but I am now learning that my body pre... Read more
Saturday on target
There's been more than a few times that hubby and I went out to dinner with intentions of doing our grocery shopping later. Then we'd get to the restaurant, eat until we were stuffed, and be unable to continue on. He would have probably been abl... Read more
Another productive and healthy eating day down in the books. Not sure what the weather is bringing us overnight, but I am looking forward to sleeping in. I need to re-charge my batteries a little bit this weekend. Hubby is kind of a mess with hi... Read more

Believe Believe Believe
I came. I saw. I kicked butt.
I really didn't even appreciate how awesome I did until I was home flipping channels for a few minutes. I started to roll through my workout tonight with my coach, Hadley and realized I did something amazing t... Read more
Why ask Why
I've come to a realization tonight.
The reason I love my coach is the exact same reason I hate him.
When I say, "hate" - I don't mean the kind of feeling - "if I had an anvil, I'd throw him off a cliff," as noted in a blog from Dec 31... Read more
Who will you be in 2015?
My lost blog is lost for a reason. While it was an extremely cathartic experience I had in writing that blog, it was a letter to myself, a blog that divulged the good, the bad and the ugly. Those things that I've endured are best left where they... Read more
I just wrote the best and most honest blog of my life, and then internet explorer opened and closed the tab. Thanks, internet!
I'll try to re-write it tomorrow.... Read more
The Hard Questions
Within the last couple of weeks, my coach, Hadley, has posed some interesting questions to me including will I eat healthy on Christmas. One of the questions he asked me a couple of weeks ago is still rolling around my brain..."How do I feel abo... Read more
Releasing the Frustration
I am really glad to be starting a new challenge with my BLC squad of Sapphire Beauties this week. Our gang is genuinely supportive, warm-hearted and a very compassionate group. They are one of my lifelines and also give me a lot of support, whil... Read more
Need to Strengthen My Muscle
Been off for a few days --- and perhaps that is why stress seems readily available today at work. I recognize that when I am stressed, it is so much easier to chomp on something even when I am not even hungry. I have been trying to avoid this be... Read more
Here's a peek at today's menu, breakfast (at home) and lunch for later.
The oatmeal looks like it is overrun by the raisins and possibly is - but it was a small box of... Read more
I have a weird relationship with jewelry. I really enjoy certain styles and pieces, but actually don't wear it all that much. I actually make it too, but that was born out of a desire to keep my hands busy and out of the kitchen.
In the la... Read more
On the Way to 398
I have had a truly amazing week. I stopped bingeing, turned over a new leaf and began eating healthy and did a version of running with my coach. The culmination of those things showed up today, when I went to weigh in and for the first time in r... Read more
