Sweet Victory!

Wednesday, March 19, 2014      0 comments

To sum up was stressful. I'm swapped at work and being snow at home yesterday only made things worse. School was late this morning and to be honest it took us that long to dig out to the many roads anyway. To add a little more stress,... Read more

Two dreaded, yet expected events finally came today. First, influenza has been going around the school fierce and that means it was bound to hit daycares next. Two cases had popped up in my daycare this past week, one of whom was my little ... Read more

This is the tenth Valentine's day I've celebrated with the man I now call hubby. He's your man's man who has his own business doing welding and construction. He's really a jack of all trades because I swear there is very little he can't do (oh, ... Read more

Everyday Victory

Tuesday, February 11, 2014      1 comments

I saw 190 on the scale again. I started weighing in everyday again then log it (up or down). It's very illuminating to see the zig zagged line on my chart. It really illustrates that even though my weight is up and down each day, it's right on t... Read more

A horribly perfect day!

Today was a perfect day. We went to church and while one boy was in Sunday School, Hubby watched LO and I went to the gym for a workout. After I was done, we headed out to the in-laws to spend the afternoon. Watched a movie, played a game of dom... Read more

It was a pretty lazy Saturday at home. Other than getting in my exercise and running after the kids and other random stuff, I'm trying to think if I actually accomplished anything? Nope...well, a load of laundry I guess and of course making and ... Read more

I did week 4 of C25K for the first time today. I was nervous going into knowing I would have a 5 minute run, but I set out to give it a try. First three minute run, no problem. The five minute run came and YAY! I did it. Okay just a three minute... Read more

It's been 42 days. 42 days! I can hardly believe this. So what have I accomplished in these 42 days you might ask? Well…. • Though it might not be physically visible yet, I can feel there is an amazing change happening inside me. • I c... Read more

In preparation of the big day, I've been cleaning house. I did get in 30 minutes of exercise in the morning, but the whole day has been pretty active. I've scrubbed our tub/shower and cleaned the floors and with a toddler in the house there are ... Read more

I'll have to be brief tonight. It was a challenging day but I guess it all worked out okay. Someone brought in homemade stromboli to share with us at work. Mind you this was right before lunch and I was hungry. It was sooooo good let me tell you... Read more

Truce with my scale

Thursday, January 30, 2014      0 comments

I've called a truce with my scale and no longer banning it. I've learned its just a tool and I am going to treat it like one. I'd like to weigh everyday. After a month of entering it on spark, I can look at my report. Although the will be a lot ... Read more

Today marks 5 weeks since I committed to my health goals. The newness/excitement of the gym membership is worn off, but amazingly, I still really enjoy it. I'm eating consciously. First, just trying to eat within my calorie range and secondly, t... Read more
