Traveled all day yesterday to get to a hockey game with the family, and then, of course, the return trip today. Wreaks havoc on my stomach and amusingly, today's Small Changes Challenges is about breakfast. I eat breakfast daily, usually as so... Read more

Day 1

Thursday, January 01, 2015      0 comments

It's been a long few months, but I've done well in that I've not gained weight so much as just been stuck at the same weight, with little time or even desire to do much else. Life has been plain busy, with my nutrition at the back burner. But ... Read more

Back to the beginning

Friday, August 01, 2014      2 comments

I sometimes wonder if I'm just not the size I'm supposed to be. No matter what, I go back to this. Life is stressful, and I'm busy with my kids, and finding time for exercise and "eating right" just isn't on the agenda. I don't believe I ... Read more

Back to baby steps.

Monday, February 11, 2013      2 comments

I'm now 6 weeks post partum, and about 30 lbs lighter than where I was 10 months ago. Life is crazy difficult- life with a newborn tends to be. I'm trying hard to not constantly stress eat, as I do not want to gain any of that weight back. It... Read more

A change in plans...

Tuesday, May 01, 2012      5 comments

Things have been kind of crazy. I had been working on my gardens as much as I could, although the weather didn't want to cooperate a whole lot. I had made the decision to talk to my physician at my next appointment about my options... My ... Read more

Down week

Thursday, March 29, 2012      1 comments

I had such a great week last week- I was out in the sun, sweating and enjoying the fresh air while I struggled with my huge garden. I got the entire bed in front of my house cleaned, but still have 2 more sides, the small gardens by the chicken... Read more

Some down, a lot to go.

BLC #20 is over, and I'm not to happy with how I did. I really struggled this challenge. I just had such a bad bout of depression, which is unsurprising for February, honestly. It's still frustrating. It's so hard to try and deal with that a... Read more

Not doing well...

Wednesday, February 22, 2012      6 comments

I haven't been feeling very well lately, so I tried taking it easy for a bit- tracking, and doing light workouts. It didn't make me feel better, I just felt lazy. So despite not feeling well, I tried doing a normal workout, and that made me fe... Read more

BLC Week #3 thoughts

Thursday, January 26, 2012      1 comments

A little late...I've been busy. My littlest started preschool this week, and I was sort of in awe and confusion as what to do with myself these mornings. The first morning I hit the track at the college. I lost count how many laps I power-wal... Read more

BLC Week #2 and other thoughts

Tuesday, January 17, 2012      3 comments

I had the hardest time falling asleep last night. I had this tickle in the back of my throat, and it was making me cough just slightly. I tried everything to get rid of it so I could fall asleep- drinking water, gargling, a lozenge. It seemed... Read more

BLC Challenge Day #1

Monday, January 09, 2012      2 comments

It's BLC #20 starting day, Go Green Hornets! Go Me. I'm not very enthusiastic right now, mainly because I feel pretty crappy right now. Actually, I feel pretty discouraged. I have a lot of people cheering me on, and yet...I'm not cheerin... Read more

Still here, still alive. . . slow as a turtle, but hey whatever. I won't say I'm "starting" up again, as I never truly stopped. I sort of slowed, didn't focus on fitness, or calories. I tried to watch what I ate when I could, limiting t... Read more

Where did December come from?

Thursday, December 01, 2011      4 comments

It's December already? Last I looked, it was October. Holy...I've been so busy lately. Bad, stressful busy. Visitors, family, 2 year old toddler double-hockey-sticks. So busy, I've just neglected my health. I'm so glad my doctor gave me... Read more

Motivational Blah

Wednesday, October 12, 2011      4 comments

I had been dreading my doctor's appointment. I didn't think she'd be supportive. I half expected her to tell me I hadn't lost enough weight, and I half expected my numbers to be high again. My Hg A1C dropped from 6.8 to 6.2 in 3 months. ... Read more

Small steps led me to big progress

Wednesday, October 05, 2011      4 comments

Thanks for all the kind words. I truly appreciate it. I saw some good results today with my monthly measurements. Everything went down, by at least a half an inch, except my hips. Boo Hips. I was also down on the scale, though I alrea... Read more
