I don't mind admitting that food has always been a focal point of my life; I just have needed to learn to have a more healthy relationship with said focal point! I've alway... Read more

I'm on my fourth week of the January Jumpstart Challenge, and actually, I've been on this fitness journey since November 16. It's pretty gratifying that I have really stuck with daily exercise, and tracking my food (even on embarrassing days - "... Read more
Three Things
Monday, December 30, 2013      2 comments

So, I finished the Skinny Jeans Challenge today (and no, I still don't like skinny jeans. Give me wide leg any day), but the last challenge was to write down three things I like - no, LOVE - about my body that have nothing to do with the way I l... Read more
Season's End

You know, it's so strange - while my television and radio (yes, you whippersnappers, I said "radio") still think that it's Christmastime, I walked into my retail job today to see rows of empty lockers hanging open. The seasonal help is gone. It ... Read more

I didn't get a chance to work out yesterday because of work and family stuff, so I was bound and determined to get it in today! Mondays are early school days for my five year old, so I had to wake him up and the first thing out of his mouth was,... Read more

I really do enjoy getting my exercise in, even if I don't always want to get started, and I usually do it first thing before the little ones get up...so today I started off with my usual 30 Day Shred, because I am a lunatic, but later, at the en... Read more
Keeping my balance
Wednesday, December 04, 2013      2 comments

Do you ever feel like you're walking across a tightrope? And that there are snapping crocodiles underneath you? No...? Well, I guess I *am* prone to exaggeration... I started a new job two weeks ago - "part time" has turned into 32 hours a ... Read more
My weight goals
Saturday, November 23, 2013      1 comments

I was thinking this morning about my personal weight goals. At my heaviest, I was well over two hundred pounds. I am not sure how over because I have blocked it out, so I don't have an exact starting weight. And then I lost a lot of weight, abou... Read more

No, not the band that started out with Peter Gabriel and ended up with Phil Collins - and I'm not even going to talk about who was better and which one had no talent. Heh, yeah, and I'm not going to talk about the first book of the Bible ei... Read more

Heh. Okay, just to start, that sounds like a very deep (and boring!) blog title, doesn't it? You'd have to actually read the post to find out how flippant I really am... Sorry, got distracted. So I had the opportunity to take both my kids t... Read more
