The kids are growing and I am shrinking. I'm very close to my goal weight after starting a local physician based diet plan. It's a moderate ketosis diet with protein shakes, protein bars and lots and lots of veggies. So far on the plan I've dr... Read more
It's been a long road for the past 2+ years and I'm finally starting to feel like myself again, movement wise. I've still got this pesky meniscus problem but I'm getting in my steps most days and enjoying hiking in the beautiful desert areas ar... Read more
Well I've been gone for quite a while. I've finally got back to a point where I can work more on my whole body health than the single item recovery issues I've had. First I developed a partial meniscus tear that sidelined me for a while. Then t... Read more
I do the best I can
every single day.
Always, that's my goal
at work, at home, at play.
Reaping the best reward,
receiving my hard work's pay,
is having lots of energy
to play with my kids all day!

Our opening weekend is about over. As openers go, the weather wasn't as bad as other years and the problems weren't too bad. The most crucial parts of our docking systems are in the lake, hooray!! One power outage late yesterday that lasted for ... Read more
The weather is improving, the lakes are opening up, the loons are back, and I am in crunch time for opening day of our resort. We open for the 2014 season in 13 days. Unfortunately this means my regularly scheduled workouts are taking a back sea... Read more
Well we made it home safe and sound from our 2014 Texas Adventure. Our return home was delayed one day due to a frozen septic line at home. If it would have happened a day earlier we could have had a couple of extra days in Texas. But instead, D... Read more
We spent another enjoyable day here in the lovely Houston area. Today we spent over 2 hours in the Children's Museum. How on earth do I track that?? I carried a back pack that wound up holding all the coats plus the diaper/pull up bag and all th... Read more
We are having a great vacation from the cold. Although we miss Daddy and the dogs, it's been nice getting outside every day. I'd forgotten how good the kids sleep when we've been outside for hours.

It was a great trip. With the usual trials and tribulations traveling with 3 small children. Our fun stops were perfect and, although I didn't get my 9K steps in daily, I was able to get between 4100 to 4500 a day. Considering we spent 7 hours ... Read more
I'm getting ready for a cross country trip with the 3 kids so I'll be doing the minimum sparking while I get ready to go. I'll still be checking in and getting my workouts done but I probably won't be able to get all my steps in when we are driv... Read more
I've been back sparking for a month and a bit now. I'm seeing some good changes and some places where I can make some more adjustments. I'm already addicted to the endorphin rush from my cardio workouts. I really look forward to the end of the d... Read more
I started the day tired from lack of sleep and ended up getting a nice 40 minute workout in on the treadmill. (Thanks to my DH who dug through the snow banks to get my treadmill out of the storage shed!) I was just thinking about how old my tr... Read more
Woot !! Woot !! I did it! I finished the 28 Day Bootcamp Workout Challenge!! I guess the 3rd time was the charm! The first two times I never got past week 2. It feels so good to finish it! Now I get to pick which challenge I'm going to do fo... Read more
It feels so good to make that milestone! After letting myself work back up to over 200 lbs the last 2 years, I am thrilled to see that magical 199 number. And that's only after a month of returning to Sparkpeople! I have been enjoying my baseme... Read more
