The weather today is gorgeous! Got up and immediately went to Shelley Lake and did 2 miles around the lake in 30 minutes. I have noticed that if I tell myself before I go to sleep, "As soon as you wake up, you are going to want to get right up... Read more
Well, I can't believe it's been this long since I blogged. Fortunately, it's not for all the wrong reasons, which would certainly have been the case in the past. I have just been busy living life! My healthy habits are still intact and I'm fe... Read more
I Love to Exercise!
No... REALLY! I had to go several days without due to medical stuff and sickness last week and it was AWFUL. I almost feel panicky-scared to death of losing ground. So yesterday I kicked it in the pool, and today I kicked it at the gym. Feel... Read more
Alone of my own making
I cannot let you in.
I sit in silent suffering
The doors are locked again.
It's all from the beginning,
Her hands did not bring light.
A dawning without comforting
Has left me locked up tight.
And I c... Read more
Needing A Little Sunshine Today...
Well, I haven't blogged in awhile. Don't like that... blogging is one of the things that really helps me stay on track. Get those feelings OUT instead of stuffing them; but sometimes life just gets busy and there you are...
So let's see. ... Read more
This Looks Like a Job For...!
I really do miss blogging everyday! Life, though, has been very busy and the good news is that I just realized that I've now been involved in healthy habits going into SIX MONTHS NOW. That's a first EVER. I feel amazing, I feel so hopeful.. b... Read more
When the world says, "Give up," Hope whispers, "Try it one more time."
Hope is a beautiful and amazing thing; perhaps the most powerful emotion (besides love) that there is.
No matter where you are this morning, HOPE. No matter what you've done in the past day, week, month, year - HOPE. No matter how much ... Read more
"Knowing Is Not Enough, We Must Apply"
We have a whiteboard in our office where people are supposed to sign in and out. One day I drew a funny cartoon on there so that people would come into the office and have a smile to start their day. They loved it! They told their friends and... Read more
Overwhelmed with the Love of My Friends
You guys are great... don't know how I can ever thank you. It's always scary to post a blog that others may find as "TMI" or that reveals those deep-down vulnerabilities; but I also think (at least for me) that it's necessary sometimes. Beside... Read more
I Can't Kill IT Until I Expose IT (Caution: RAW Reflection Inside)
We have all heard the condemnation about "fat people." You're fat because you have no self control - you're fat because you're a pig - you're fat because you're lazy - you're fat because of genetics (which REALLY sucks because it sounds like th... Read more
Healthy Living Just Makes Sense!
So this morning I had a check up with the doctor. I was so excited about hopping on the scale - what a feeling that was! The doctor couldn't believe how much I had lost. I, of course, went on and on about Sparkpeople and told her to recommend... Read more
Thanks to All My Spark Friends!
In case I haven't told you all lately, I could NOT do this without your ongoing support and encouragement. There are so many FAITHFUL FRIENDS who, without fail, read my blog and always have wonderful, positive comments. I really believe that s... Read more
Back to the Basics!
Okay, so I didn't do too bad while I was on the road. Did my exercise everyday, logged my food... but I can TOTALLY see some bad habits coming back. To the point where yesterday I did the whole "cheat" day. I DON'T DO CHEAT DAYS!
So to... Read more
On The Road Again...
Headed out of town today. Will be involved in social worker training Wednesday through Friday in Monroe, NC (a booming metropolis - NOT). Anyway, I packed my bathing suit AND workout clothes so I can keep up my habits.
Have a new man in... Read more
So Very Blessed...
I haven't blogged in a couple of days - which I DON'T like - because it's one of the things that I think really does keep me accountable! In the past, it would have been because I had a bad time, was hiding, isolating, hiding out while I bemoan... Read more
