Another Pound Bites the Dust

Thursday, May 17, 2012      6 comments

Yoga's Not for Me

Thursday, May 10, 2012      9 comments

Having heard so many people rave about the benefits of Yoga, I had two DVD's on Netflix that I tried yesterday. For a long time, I've wanted to get into Yoga. (or so I thought) Had to laugh at myself because I just didn't like it at all ... Read more


Wednesday, May 09, 2012      5 comments

Yesterday I sincerely pondered ending this journey. Not giving up on a healthy lifestyle, but just not working at it anymore. It gets so tiresome sometimes. However, this morning's weekly weigh-in showed another pound down. Not much, but eno... Read more

To Cheese or Not to Cheese...

Thursday, May 03, 2012      5 comments

...that is the question. I started what was to be my May goal in April - no cheese. Then I blogged that I'd decided to change it to less cheese. But when I went back to it, and it just didn't taste that good to me anymore. So here I am into d... Read more

Seems like all my hard work is starting to pay off - finally. After a forever plateau, I recently decided to get tough with myself and have been working very hard at mega-exercise and amazingly good eating. Today's weigh-in gave me good feedba... Read more
