Ready for new jeans

Friday, December 19, 2014      2 comments

Looks like when I get back from visiting my family for the holidays, I'll be headed to the thrift store! Time to trade in some old jeans for some smaller ones! :) I've tried not to think much about clothing size day to day. I'm losing weigh... Read more

Glad to be back in the zone (blisters and all)

Thursday, December 18, 2014      4 comments

I walked 6 miles today. First time in many, many years. Feels amazing. In addition to trying to lose 80 pounds (21 down so far), I'm training for the Susan G. Komen 60-mile walk in Oct. 2015. The last time I did that amazing event was Oct.... Read more

175!!! Yayyy!!!

Thursday, December 18, 2014      4 comments

I weighed in at 175 this morning! That's a big deal for me, for several reasons. Four years ago, 175 was my highest weight (not all-time high, but ever since my first round of weight loss), and it was the weight where I said, "I feel uncomf... Read more

I need a plan

Wednesday, December 10, 2014      2 comments

I've been doing great with exercise. That's the good news, and it really is! Back in September I was so out of shape. I had no desire to exercise, even though I used to love it. I got winded walking two blocks. It was all I could do to make the ... Read more

Running again

Friday, November 28, 2014      10 comments

I decided to start running again. Slowly but surely. Iíve missed it! Over the past month of choosing to be intentional about exercise, starting to train for distance walking again, etc. itís occurred to me that what I really want to do is r... Read more

Some adjustments

Monday, November 24, 2014      2 comments

I ate a full dinner late last night after getting home from work. It put me over my calorie range by about 300 calories because I had snacked through the day - healthy snacks, but too often. When I looked back on the day to see what went wrong, ... Read more

Just do it

Friday, November 21, 2014      4 comments

"Just do it" may be cliche but it seems to work for me and exercise. All week I've looked forward to my two days off to walk at the park. When this morning arrived, I woke up early without an alarm - I think I was just that excited. Headed strai... Read more

Improvements! Yay!!!

Thursday, November 20, 2014      1 comments

This is a reminder that the scale is not everything. While I've been losing 1 pound per week and grateful for that, I realize that some weeks the scale will not budge. To be ready for that, I want to make note of all the other ways I'm noticing ... Read more

Some thoughts mid-week

Wednesday, November 19, 2014      2 comments

Some thoughts in my head this morning as I went from gym to grocery store - just stuff I'm beginning to realize - 1. There's never a convenient time to lose weight. You just have to do it. There's always going to be stuff going on, and new ... Read more

Saturday, November 15, 2014      14 comments

I used to be so consumed with the big picture of trying to get back into shape and lose weight that my efforts seemed to derail within a few weeks. What's that old adage - If you want different results, try doing something a different way? ... Read more

Somewhere down the road ...

Saturday, November 08, 2014      3 comments

I think I'm writing this for myself IF, somewhere down the road, I hit the same ditch I've been in and not wanting to exercise. Because after several days walking and re-committing to the 60-mile walk next year, I wonder why I ever thought I did... Read more

Stepping out (with God!)

Thursday, November 06, 2014      1 comments

Today I registered for the Atlanta 3-Day (Susan G. Komen) for October 16-18, 2015. Ten years ago I completed this walk, not knowing I myself had ovarian cancer. I was sick with adrenal fatigue, fibromyalgia, hypoglycemia, constant trembling and ... Read more

End date for weight loss

Saturday, November 01, 2014      3 comments

Considering I've been here two years and never lost more than the initial 12 or so pounds, it seems almost pointless to set an end date. Seems every time I do that, I end up making bad choices. But I'm taking this as yet another new day wit... Read more

Finally gave this to God (for real)

Friday, July 25, 2014      0 comments

Two weeks ago, an inner healing colleague came to visit and challenged us to put something before God that we'd like to see change in the next 18 months. Then be persistent about putting it before Him in prayer each day. What I wrote was simply,... Read more
