I'm out!

Thursday, February 11, 2016      8 comments

I'm only in the second week of a maintenance challenge and I'm out. I was over by .01 ounces. It's a reality check and I needed it. I've been barely scraping under the high end of my weight range/challenge for weeks. It was bound to happen and i... Read more

Roller coaster ride

Friday, February 05, 2016      13 comments

That has been how life on my maintenance journey has been lately. Up and down. That goes for the scale, motivation, hot flashes, exercise, energy, eating, etc. Winter has always been a tough time of year for me. I just want to eat all that ... Read more

Second snow day!

Wednesday, February 03, 2016      12 comments

Today is my second day off from work due to snow. Needless to say, lots of snow shoveling going on. The hubby uses the snow blower, but I'd rather use the time as a workout! I've been averaging around 90 minutes of exercise the past two day... Read more

I am really not a cold weather person. I appreciate the beauty of a new snowfall and one can have lots of fun, but it makes it very hard to run. I always seem to struggle, a bit, with my weight this time of year. My body seems to hold onto thos... Read more

Temptations 0, Me 2

Tuesday, January 12, 2016      14 comments

Today was "Taco Tuesday" at work. A taco bar with lots of deserts. It's a Tuesday, Fat Friday to be honest. Then, I had a union meeting. They always provide food/dinner since it goes until around 6:30 PM. Usually there are some healthy alternat... Read more

Speak up!

Saturday, January 02, 2016      11 comments

Many people I know have lost a loved one recently. Some comments, on facebook, are about not staying in touch as much as they would have liked or how their absence will be felt by so many. This made me think that we all need to speak up! Th... Read more

This is the night that many will make a New Year's resolution to lose weight and get into shape. We all have probably done the same sometime in previous years. What makes 2016 different? We are here and thus have already begun the "get health... Read more

I need a 2x4!

Saturday, December 19, 2015      12 comments

A friend of mine says that sometimes it takes being "hit" with a 2x4 to get the message and to refocus. I feel like that's what I need. It's been a crazy past 2 months. Buying a house and moving away from my mom (she lived across the stree... Read more

It's been a bumpy past two months. Plumbing issues in the new house, kids rear ending others in an ice storm (nothing serious), and now the closing date on our old house has been postponed. Their lender wants all the repairs done prior to closin... Read more

400 days

Thursday, December 03, 2015      19 comments

Yesterday was the 400th day that I have exercised 30 minutes or more. Some days I run, some days it's my elliptical, but I always walk! I haven't run for a while and I can tell I'm not in the same "shape" as I once was. It's been snowy and... Read more

I need a break!

Saturday, November 28, 2015      19 comments

We had a couple slow drains in the new house. During the Thanksgiving clean up the kitchen sink wouldn't drain. It finally did. Then, I was doing laundry and we had water poring through the garage. It was coming from under the laundry room floo... Read more

I am a competitive person by nature. It's just who I am. I've learned to turn it into a positive thing, at times. emoticonRead more
