My Journey to Contentment - not so easy!

Monday, March 24, 2014      1 comments

I've come to think that a successful life is a continuous work in progress. If you look away for a moment things can go south. In my case, I haven't been paying much attention for 3 years and now I am in a huge state of discontent. I'm not ha... Read more

No junk for 30 days

Friday, February 28, 2014      7 comments

On January 31 I decided that I would not eat any junk food nor would I drink alcohol for 30 days. Today is day 29 and I have followed it to the letter. I feel so much better than normal and I never really felt bad. I won't go back to eating j... Read more

Can I eat only real food for 30 days?

Monday, December 30, 2013      6 comments

I lost 53 pounds by eating 'healthier" and exercising. Although I did eat healthier than I had been I really wasn't eating healthy. Lately I have been looking into how I eat and how I can do a better job of only putting healthy FOOD in m... Read more

Skin cancer removed

Tuesday, November 05, 2013      5 comments

Last week Thursday I had skin cancer removed from my forehead. They used a procedure called MOHS that helps to reduce scarring but also makes sure that it is all gone before they close you up and send you home. It was a much bigger process tha... Read more

I see the light!

So I have been in a rut for a while. It's amazing what just a little bit of hope can create. We found out last night that we will be renting a townhouse that we really like. It took them a week to get back to us and the week seemed like two i... Read more

Stuck in a rut! Will it ever change?

Tuesday, October 15, 2013      3 comments

I'm in a slump that I really need to get out of. Exercise and eating healthy has become a big challenge. I feel stuck I guess, although I am not sure why. I have all these grand plans and when I wake up in the morning it's like I never had a ... Read more

So excited about all my helpers

Wednesday, January 09, 2013      6 comments

Today I received an email from Fitbit about my 2012 activity. They had mentioned earlier this month that it would be coming and I was waiting patiently. I was easily able to do that because I totally forgot that it was coming! Anyhow, a... Read more

2012 in Review - Looking to 2013

Wednesday, January 02, 2013      1 comments

I don't really have a verdict on how I think 2012 went. I haven't pondered it until now. It was a blur for the most part. I am amazed how quickly these last two years have gone by since we moved to Arizona. 2012 Review: -Visited home... Read more

2012 Intro is now a blog entry

Wednesday, January 02, 2013      2 comments

This was my intro last year. Moved it here to make room for a new intro! Can you believe I am a grandma!? Really. I have a great husband, three fantastic kids and three beautiful grandkids. I've been a member of SparkPeople since June 2... Read more

What to do

Sunday, December 16, 2012      2 comments

I haven't been on SparkPeople much these days. I try but for some reason life gets in the way. When I was losing weight I was able to get on everyday. I don't know why it's different now. It's not like I don't have the time. Maybe it's beca... Read more

I've done it again. That's a good thing!

Sunday, September 16, 2012      3 comments

Wow, my fitness journey has taken all sorts of twists and turns. Some days I am right on track and other days I'm lucky if I can find the tracks. At one point many years ago I had given up chocolate and soda (all caffeine actually) for five ye... Read more

I realized something today; actually it was over the past few days. There is no need to kill yourself trying to achieve any goal. Ok maybe kill is a strong word but I think you will understand me when I say that sometimes we are so focused on ... Read more

It doesn't have to be all or nothing

Sunday, May 06, 2012      1 comments

I have been blogging for over a year now that I am having a hard time getting in a routine since our move. It's not that I don't do anything but I don't stick with it. It's so very frustrating to have a plan and want to succeed and then my thi... Read more

Start where you are

Sunday, April 22, 2012      2 comments

I have learned I do not do well without a plan. Not only that, I only seem to really do well when I have extreme focus on something and almost every minute of my day is planned. I have been trying to figure out a happy medium and have come up ... Read more

February - consistency

Saturday, February 04, 2012      1 comments

I'm a little behind in setting my goals for February. As January was such a bust I can only go up from there. We've set our gym time at 4:30 am so that we get it done early and can't make excuses to skip a workout. The idea was to do our stre... Read more
