Sometimes you just have to take a look at yourself and realize that the number on the scale can either break you or make you. This morning that number on the scale made me ANGRY! I don't like that number. I won't BE that number. I need to take b... Read more

Thursday, November 30, 2017      2 comments

I had such high hopes for 2017! Things were finally going to be better after bad years in 2015 and 2016. No such luck! My sweet mom was diagnosed with a recurrence in her stomach cancer just before the end of 2016. We left her obnoxious oncologi... Read more

I know, I do know! It isn't much considering how much I want and need to lose but it is loss! Since I got my Jawbone Up2 in October I've finally lost 6 pounds. That means I have 29 to lose to get to my goal weight. When I started back on the jou... Read more

2016 has been a year...not a good year but not totally a bad year either. It has presented our family with obstacles to overcome and with once-in-a-lifetime experiences that we can never truly express our gratitude for. As I sit here, pondering ... Read more

Wednesday, February 03, 2016      5 comments

My 'goal' was 1000 miles in 2015. My actual was 592.66 miles. That seems like a big deficit. It really isn't though. I started in 2013 trying to get to 1000 miles in the year. I barely made it to 100 miles in 2013 due to health issues. In 2014 I... Read more
