Just Whining Really
Sunday, June 25, 2017      3 comments

This was an extra tough week for me as a parent. Monday - My oldest son's principal calls me and leaves a message on my phone while I'm at work. He, my son's teacher and the guidance teacher want to get together with my husband and I to pu... Read more
Day 63: Week 9 - New Week; New Determination
Sunday, May 21, 2017      3 comments

I didn't do as well last week as I had hoped to. I have excuses for that; but they're excuses and I don't want to make those anymore. I didn't do what I had planned to, for whatever reason, and I didn't get results. That's not rocket science.... Read more
Day 56: Week 8 - It Goes On So Easily...
Sunday, May 14, 2017      4 comments

Why is it so hard to lose? I had a bad week this week. Fell into old bad habits, didn't do the exercise, that sort of thing. So I'm not surprised I gained. But I worked so hard to take off the pounds and they just seem to fall back on. ... Read more
Day 35: Week 6 - Little Good; Little Bad
Sunday, April 30, 2017      1 comments

I don't understand body fat percentage. The last few weeks it's been going up even as my weight has been going down and this week my weight went up and my body fat percentage went way down. I think it means that I'm building muscle, which is g... Read more
Day 28: 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
Day 7: Week 2 - Goal Check-in
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
Day 1: Week 1 - Again and Again...
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
Day 1: I Didn't Want to Do It
Sunday, January 29, 2017      7 comments

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
Week 84 - Tearing it Down
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

Sunday, November 06, 2016      3 comments

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
