Almost a month since my last entry. Yikes. It is so easy to fall off track. I will not let myself get derailed for long. So between the anniversary and then my birthday---too many celebrations that involved eating. Even though I told my hus... Read more

Me again

Sunday, May 31, 2015      1 comments

Two weeks ago I did a 3.5 mile walk for the March of Dimes. Since that was about what I had been walking in a week--it made it easy to justify slacking off the next week--which I did. Then, too many long days at work with too many meetings and... Read more

Been down this road before

Ugh. The results of my poor choices showed up on the scale this morning. I didn't get much exercise in (add in any excuse). I went out to eat and even though I chose the salad and had the dressing on the side--ate too many chips. I didn't tr... Read more

I was very saddened to hear of the death of one of my son's classmates from K-12. He was only 23 and died of a massive stroke. This young man bullied my son for several years so it was understandable that my son did not feel the same. In read... Read more

I was pleasantly surprised to step on the scale this morning and see that I didn't gain any weight this week. I had a couple of meals out and bought lunch at the cafeteria twice this week so I was sure I'd added a couple of pounds since I slack... Read more

Must stay focused

I am making slow but steady progress and want to keep it that way. I haven't been tracking calories like I should be have been getting in my walks. I need to up the fruits and veggies and get more sleep. I worked too many hours this week and ... Read more

Thank you, God

Thank you, God, for saving me from myself. I have no idea how I ended up in the wrong lane in one of the busiest intersections in town at the height of rush hour and went through the intersection on a red light with everyone else at a complete ... Read more

Not sure

So I usually don't weigh myself more than once a week but since yesterday was a bit unclear--I weighed myself again today and it was a pound lighter than yesterday. It could have been water retention or maybe I need a better scale........I know... Read more

So, I slacked off a little on the exercise this week but still managed at least 10 minutes a day. I ate out a couple times but also stayed just under calorie range a couple of days. I would like to think it is water retention because I did go ... Read more

Ugh--I can't believe how fatigued I feel. I haven't slept in two nights because of this horrid cold. My eyes hurt. My teeth hurt. Even my hair hurts. But still, I go to work every day when I should have enough sense to stay home. I really ... Read more

One foot in front of the other

There is only one option. Well, only one viable option. Keep moving forward. There were way too many meetings this week that kept me in a chair and off my feet. I still managed to get my walking time in--I just had to make it a priority and ... Read more

One day at a time

Back to back meetings again all day at work and no time for a walk. I did some mini-squats while waiting for one meeting to start and then, even though I got home late, did get in some treadmill time. Calories ok today. I just have to take th... Read more

Could be worse

I was not really surprised when I stepped on the scale this morning. I was hoping for better results but was relieved it wasn't worse. I didn't do as well with portion control this week and, while I chose wisely for my entrée the night we ate ... Read more

Keepin' it going

Thursday, March 12, 2015      1 comments

I had a little more control over my schedule today--not much, and not until the afternoon. Since I was in meetings all day until 1, I couldn't do my morning walk. Then, once I got back to my office it was easy to get immersed in the work that ... Read more

I spent a few minutes searching inspirational quotes on Pinterest. I found a whole bunch for different aspects of my life. Many of them were variations on the same theme--never give up. Don't quit. Failure is not to try. Success is doing. ... Read more
