Good grief! If it isn't one thing, it's another! I had just started to get myself back into a routine ... Read more
Thank you Nixy for noticing I was mia and reminding me to get my tush back here. It touched me deeply that somebody noticed and cared. I said I would explain and here it is:
In a previous blog I mentioned I'd been recently diagnosed with ... Read more
Once again, I find a need to start over. Wait. That's not right, I shouldn't feel like a failure every time I don't lose any weight trying something new. Saying I'm starting over just makes me feel bad so I will now choose a difference tactic... Read more
It's been more than two months since I've been here. I gave up. I worked hard all January, every day working out and eating what I was supposed to and not only did I not lose weight (I gained 3 oz), my measurements did not change at all! I wa... Read more
Another Sleepless Night
On New Year's Eve we moved our bed into the basement. It was in the attic, which was extremely cold. The basement is a nice even temperature; warm in the winter and cool in the summer. BUT, the furnace is so loud it wakes me every time it com... Read more
January Jumpstart Challenge
I've done day four and am having no trouble keeping up with it. I am surprised to see the videos are so short; only 8 - 12 minutes (so far). They're great!
I get my walking in beforehand, so that is my 'warmup', using Leslie Sansone's v... Read more
Starting over and over and over
It gets frustrating, to say the least, to work so hard toward a goal only to find you're further away now than when you started. Yes, I've gained again. So, once again, I feel like I'm starting over from the beginning. This time, however, I'... Read more
Epiphany on Vacation
We finally took a vacation. We didn't have one last year, in fact our last was our honeymoon March 2008. We've taken mini-vacations since then, camping overnight in the Badlands once or visiting friends or family, but not doing something just fo... Read more
First Bike Ride of 2011
We moved to a small town from an acreage so were leary of biking on busy roads. Luckily for us, Devon, AB is a "Bike Town". Being next to the North Saskatchewan River, they have taken advantage of the situation and built loads of bike trails.... Read more
Starting over, again.
I've been a member here for several years and have had to start over a few times. I don't place blame for my lack of success, though it is extremely disheartening to work so hard and get nowhere. No, not nowhere, in worse condition than when I... Read more
Chew Your Food!
Prompted by TrenSue's blog on not chewing her food:
I have the same problem. It (in my case) stems from my mother always telling me to hurry up. We weren't supposed to take our time and enjoy our meal, just hurry through it so she could c... Read more
I've been trying to lose weight for seven years now and have actually succeeded once, getting down to 135... Read more
I have become lazy. It's part of the illness. The fatigue overwhelms me and I need to rest, a lot. So I rest. Then I rest some more. Soon, I find I have lost all motivation, lost ground on all my efforts to gain control of my health and act... Read more
