Before my 10 day cleanse:
1. I would have never gone to the farmers market-nothing would interest me. Today, I can get my whole week's groceries there.
2. I wouldn't have had the energy to go all day long, like I did today. Most Saturday... Read more

I'm back, again
Seems like this happens to me a lot. I do good starting to eat right and exercise, and then life happens. Then it's months before I try again. And I gain weight in the mean time. I've decided, one thing I'm going to try different is, instead of ... Read more
I'm pretty discouraged. I just read my May post and I could just cut and past it and post it today. Still gaining. My back is bothering me again. I've adjusted my weight loss goal to be back where I started on 1/1/14. To try to lose the wei... Read more
May 10 update
It's been a very busy few months and it goes without saying that I've been too busy to take care of myself. I've gained weight and the lack of exercise has cased my back problems to come back. So, again, I'm starting again to eat right and exerc... Read more

Progress Report Oct 12
This was a "failed week" physically. I did not exercise, track water calories. Just too busy. But the activities I was involved with were educational, emotionally supportive and inspirational. So, my week was not a total "fail", as I am more... Read more

Progress report Sept. 15
So, I didn't reach all my goals last week. I had an unusually busy week, but that should be no excuse. I need to adjust my goals to fit where I am right now I guess:

Week 2 of "fast start"
I'm doing so-so meeting my goals of 8 glasses of water, 10 min. of exercise, and posting something on spark every day. The hardest goal is the water. I can make it to 6 ok, but I run out of hours in the day to get all 8 in. I'm searching spar... Read more
