Sunday my 8 year old son and I took a hike on part of a 13 mile trail. We did two miles! I can walk two miles easily but was surprised that my little man kept up and even ran ahead of me of a few times. I know what our new pass time is going to... Read more

As of today I have lost 19 lbs! I hope I can keep this going. Sometimes it just has to click in my head that there are no short cuts to fitness and weight loss. Diet change and excercise are the key. So far I have walked two days this week. Tues... Read more

Yesterday I managed to squeeze in a 2 mile walk on my lunch hour. I walked the sidewalk along the beach. It's a nice long stretch. I walked a mile and then turned around. I'm loving my walk tracker. It lets me know when I've walked a mile so I k... Read more

There is nothing like having it "click" in your mind that you have to lose weight and the only way to do it is exercise and watching what you eat. In the last 2 weeks I have lost 11 lbs. Recently, I gained 3 pounds back but will not keep that o... Read more

Thursday, October 13, 2011      3 comments

I heart Boca burger. Boca burger can be a little bland. I have started spreading a little A-1 sauce on them and then cooking in a hot frying pan. It makes the Boca nice and brown and gives it a nice flavor. Yum My lunch for work tonight. (+h... Read more
