Day 29: Week 5 - Time to Check In
Sunday, April 23, 2017      4 comments

So, it's been 4 weeks now. I started off really well but (as expected) my mother's visit has slowed things down. More sitting around; more eating out and entertaining; and more "dangerous" food around the house. This is her last week so I'm t... Read more
Day 21 - Week 4: Didn't Do Well At All
Sunday, April 16, 2017      0 comments

That was not the best week. It was actually a pretty bad week. My mother is not a good influence on me. I didn't exercise enough the week and I didn't watch what I was eating. Thus, my loss this week is a 1.6lbs gain. So... this week I ... Read more
Day 14 - Week 3: Onward and Upward
Sunday, April 09, 2017      1 comments

Last week was tough. Covering the workload of a person who's no longer there made me exhausted and I didn't exercise the way I normally would (though I was right about the steps. With walking the dog and the extra workload I almost made my 12,00... Read more

Sunday, April 02, 2017      0 comments

I set myself some pretty challenging goals for the week. Probably harder than I should have but I did well. I met my strength training goals (3 days), step goals (12,000 steps/day for 7 days) and my running goals (3 days). I did half the dail... Read more

Sunday, March 26, 2017      6 comments

It seems like I'm always starting over. I like beginnings. I've got three weeks to get a good base in gen I have to take a little break (kind of) while my mother visits. It's not that I have to stop, she just makes it a little harder because s... Read more

I've been trying so hard to just keep moving forward. Last week I finally fell behind. I lost my attendance streak. After almost 2 years I forgot to at least log in to Spark. I've been struggling with trying to keep motivation. So today I h... Read more

This Christmas I'm Giving Myself Healthy Living
Sunday, December 25, 2016      3 comments

I've had a bad month... I've had a bad season to be honest and I've gained back nearly 10lbs. I need to stop fooling myself and buckle down and just do it. I figured Christmas Day was as good a point as any to restart. I've tried doing a litt... Read more

Sunday, December 11, 2016      1 comments

I've been off track so long that I'm lost in the wilderness. Time to tear it down and get back to basics. This week I'm going to focus on light activity and food tracking. I need to find my way back.... Read more
Week 82 - Stress
Sunday, November 20, 2016      1 comments

Stress is coming. I can feel it. DH just found out on Friday that the contract for his position was not renewed. The city has been hemming and hawing for months on whether they would extend it and decided this week that they wouldn't. ... Read more

October was not a healthy month. I ate too much and I didn't exercise and I have no excuse. November has to be better. This is my new Day 1.... Read more
Week 78: Struggling
Sunday, October 23, 2016      3 comments

I'm having the worst time getting back on track and staying there. I just can't get motivated. I tell myself everyday, "OK, this is the day to get serious again!" Everyday I come up with some excuse to not exercise or to give myself that trea... Read more
Week 77 - My Son and I Have A Lot in Common
Sunday, October 16, 2016      2 comments

We're both very hard on ourselves. I took him to his hockey game this morning. He had a great game. Great hustle, lots of hard work. Two of his coaches made special mention that this is maybe the best game they've ever seen him play. He was... Read more
Week 76 - No More Excuses!
Monday, October 10, 2016      2 comments

I've been letting life get in the way of weight loss. I know it can happen, but I haven't done enough to keep the momentum going. I've been spiraling and I need to make it stop. I've come to far to let myself quit.... Read more
Week 75 - Making it Happen
Sunday, October 02, 2016      8 comments

Too many weeks sliding through. This week I need to be more focused. I'm not as sick, not as hurt and not looking for a new car. Schedule is still flippy but I can make it work.... Read more
