Today was my first real day out since May 14th. On the 15th, I had laser eye surgery. It's been a slo... Read more

I got back from my annual vacation feeling like I had gained weight. Who wouldn't? I didn't walk as much as I usually do when I'm away. I had a gourmet meal once a day and usually dessert, home made by owner's wife. Chef and baker team... Read more
The Big Question...
What is it with me, that I find tracking food to be hideous and tedious?? I know when I track my food, I am more careful about my food choices. I also know that when I track my food, and I choose to put something in my mouth that I shouldn't, ... Read more
Monday a new week
It seems that I really struggle to track my food and to get my exercises in when I am working. It doesn't matter if it is day shift or night shift. My motivation is low, and I'm so tired. A lot of the tiredness is due to the incredible amount... Read more
On Saturday I.....
.........did my 30 Day Challenge(s). 75 squats! Impressive. It would be more impressive if it was continuous. But, broke that one down to sets of 20 with a 30 second rest between. Felt the burn. Ended up doing a total of 17 minutes to get ... Read more
So, my one "rest day" of my 30 Day Challenge became 2. Not sure how that happened. Thighs were crazy sore, and it probably wasn't a bad idea. I do feel like I cheated though. My challenge is done for the day. Tonight, I get to enjoy dinner ... Read more
I'm sore. Had a lousy day at work. Finally, at 11:30, I convinced myself to do my 30 day challenge. Ugh. Happy I've exercised, but down because now I'm late going to bed yet again. Glad tomorrow is my last day and I have a few off. Read more
Can't stay consistent
It always amazes me how an injury can set one back so far. I was able to get into a great walking routine over the summer. One evening in August, I developed an intense burning sensation in one of my toes. Ignoring it, I finished my walk. On... Read more
I wonder if I should take a "before" and an "after" picture?
Though the scale hasn't changed much in the last few weeks, I tried on some clothes today/yesterday and found some stuff on the loose side. So, there may not be a change on the scal... Read more
Another crazy busy day at work. Didn't have time to take a lunch break and gobbled down my lunch at the desk. Got home tired and frustrated. Son said "what's for dinner". I don't know, left overs? He said "McDonalds".....sigh.......fin

First day back to work after a 2 week vacation. I feel good. Work was busy. Had the potential to go to hell in a hand basket.......but it didn't. Read more
First walk in for ever....
Tonight I did it. Pushed away from the computer and took advantage of a gorgeous evening.
I used a new app on my phone...walking mate. It calculated my steps, distance and calories burned. So...I walked 5.6 km in 60 mins and burned approx 2... Read more
So.......after a long hiatus from this site, thinking I might do better with WW on line program, I am back. Still going to follow WW, but I don't get the people connection on that site like I do here. My biggest road block continues to be tra... Read more
Sunday is not my day of rest.
After much procrastination today, I eeked out Day 6 of Insanity. As I wrote to a friend, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it. That is a quitting attitude BUT, I'm curious to see how much better I get the longer I do it, so I will persevere. I als... Read more
