Wheels go round and round

Friday, January 30, 2015      3 comments

Do you remember the time you got your first car? How it felt to get somewhere on your own, under your own power? I do, vividly. It was a Datsun B210, the forerunner to what is now called "Nissan." I loved that car. It was a faded light blue/gree... Read more

Staying the Course

Thursday, January 29, 2015      5 comments

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

Wednesday, January 28, 2015      8 comments

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

Saturday, January 24, 2015      6 comments

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

Friday Night

Friday, January 23, 2015      10 comments

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

Talked to my health coach, this morning and had a very positive enjoyable conversation. The health coach helps with stress management, exercise, nutrition and other things and is sponsored through a program at work. Today's conversation was domi... 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

Tuesday, January 20, 2015      4 comments

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?

Wednesday, January 07, 2015      10 comments

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

Blog mishap

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

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

Friday, December 12, 2014      8 comments

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

Monday, December 01, 2014      3 comments

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

Making Choices

Monday, November 24, 2014      6 comments

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

Lucky Bling

Saturday, November 22, 2014      5 comments

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
