Yesterday-Day 2 Running
Yesterday was my second day running, and I still love it. I also remembered to get a "before running" picture. It isn't exactly before, since I didn't get it done until 2 days in...but close enough. I'm looking forward to seeing the "After" a... Read more
I can't believe I am really enjoying the running that I'm adding to my walking routine. Thanks again to JUDITHROXANA for your inspiration. I feel so good tonight! I tried it out on the elliptical yesterday afternoon, but it didn't really feel... Read more
What a fabulous beginning to the new year. I spent New Year's Day with Ann and her family. She invited me for her family Christmas, so my kids and I went down a day early to hang out and help her get everything ready. We went to the grocery s... Read more
"I am a slow walker, but I have never walked backwards." Abraham Lincoln
As I was catching up on some of my daily Spark emails, I ran across this one with a quote from Abraham Lincoln. I especially liked it, because it really speaks to where I am right now. My progress has been slow lately, but I'm not giving up. ... Read more
I will get my exercise today- like it or not
Holy Buckets! It is snowing to beat the band. If I was feeling overwhelmed about not getting a chance to squeeze in exercise because of the Christmas Vocal concert for my daughter tonight- that's no longer an issue. Concert is canceled, and w... Read more
Approaching my previous turning point
I have been so proud of my success and positive changes, but I've been a little nervous lately. I can't even begin to count the number of times I have gotten to the point I am right now, and have turned around and spoiled all my hard work. If ... Read more
Took the WW Monthly Pass plunge
So I was planning to wait until the beginning of the year to join WW officially, since the cost is a budget issue for me, but I jumped in last night. Had some extra hours at work, so the paycheck was a little bigger than usual. I decided it wa... Read more
Looking forward to today
Had a great day yesterday. Lots of healthy options on the table yesterday. I really felt no desire to go overboard, and I found that I don't even have the room anymore. I had two walks yesterday- one before dinner that earned me over 2 activi... Read more
This is not the most diffucult thing you have done.
This is, first of all, directed to myself, but I trust many others can relate as well.
Dear stamina,( or will power, or strength- whatever you want to call it)
This is not the first or most difficult thing you have done. You survived ju... Read more
Dear Walmart, I hate your holiday dessert display.
I hate walking into Walmart this time of year, because of that display as you walk in the door with all the various packaged desserts sitting there. I'm not saying I want them all, because I don't. To be honest, most of them don't look THAT wo... Read more
Today- Stay away from the scale
My goal today is to stay away from the scale. It's almost a compulsion to get on the dumb thing every day. I know I don't need to and that I shouldn't. I didn't have a problem before, because I just used the scale at BF's house. I bought my ... Read more
Awake at 5:30 on Saturday, AGAIN!
This is the second week in a row I have been awake by 5:30 AM on a Saturday. I put it to good use again though. I went for a walk, and returned home to find the rest of my family still asleep. I didn't even leave the house until 6:27. I spe... Read more
Thinking about food all the time, so I don't think about food all the time :/
Seriously, does this make any sense? I literally think about not thinking about food all the time. I'm really proud of the progress I have made to change how I think about food, and what kinds of foods I choose and the portions, but I feel lik... Read more
Lost another point :-)
I went from 220 to 219 today, and since I'm tracking what I eat with WW Points, I lose a point today. I always have mixed feelings about that. It means I've lost 10 pounds since the last point reduction, but sometimes I miss that extra point. ... Read more
Last night, while I was looking at my town Walmart (that's all I have locally :-( for the newest fitness video of Jackie Warner's (suggested by 2 of my friends- one who has reached her goal), I found another video instead. I didn't find the JW... Read more
