Just do it!
When I started back "on the wagon" a few weeks ago, I committed to exercising at least10 minutes a day. When I first joined SP a few years ago, that was one of the major reasons that I became successful. I mean, even I can exercise 10 minutes ... Read more
Every little bit helps
I've been feeling "blah" about exercising these last few days. I am really having to force myself to get in the 10 minutes a day that I committed to. Today, I *really* didn't want to exercise, but my girlfriend is in her fifth day of sober and... Read more
Facing the music
I've been away for awhile. Again. In the last year, I have undone all the good work I did two years ago. I got lazy and started to eat anything I wanted, and lately have even been bingeing on sugar and carbs and I am feeling like I am getting ... Read more
Small beginnings and lots of napping!!!
I have been doing great this week, getting my food back under control, and even losing a few pounds!
Today though, I woke up kind of nauseous, so I had a big glass of water and put off drinking my coffee for awhile. I tried to catch a few ... Read more
Clawing my way back up onto the wagon...
Oh boy, I have gotten sooooo far off track.
Since July, when I reached my short-term goal of 189 pounds, I have gotten distracted by new activities (which include hiking, ironically enough) and a short-lived job as a house painter that cau... Read more
Couch to 5K, Week One Day One
Yesterday, my physical therapist said that I was doing GREAT, and that it would be okay for me to start the C25K program. He did say though, that I should do each week twice and not try to go to fast. I was kind of disappointed by that, but th... Read more
I have GOALS!
I stepped on the scale this morning, and started screaming in joy. I hit a goal weight today (May 21st) that I had wanted to reach by June 15th! I wanted to reach 199 pounds or less by then, and today, the scale said 199. After my son came ru... Read more
What do I look like? Apparently, I have no idea.
This is odd, but it has come up a few times in the last week or so.
I have always known that I have a skewed view of what I actually look like. I think most people do. Even though I have been over 100 pounds overweight for years at a time... Read more
Dandelions, violets, Japanese knotwood, and more dandelions!
I have always been interested in edible plants and as a child, I would pick and eat dandelion greens, much to my friends' dismay. Well, I have a guidebook of edible plants, and since I am so inspired by Spring finally getting around to showing ... Read more
Strolling the Rail Trail
My son and I took a very nice walk today on our local Rail Trail here in town. For those of you who don't have one of these, it is where a town makes over an old and currently unused railroad path as a walking/biking/exercise path. Ours is a f... Read more
Catching up on Starting Up Gardening
I have applied for a community garden spot here in town, and I won't be able to access it before May 15th, so I have been scrambling to learn everything I can to get ready and have a reasonably successful season.
I learned almost at once th... Read more
Another good lesson learned the hard way...
I have to admit, the last week or so, I have been a little slack about my strength training workouts. I am still getting in some cardio every day, but since I hadn't been consistent with the strength training, I am feeling a bit stiff and sore.... Read more
OMG... 3 Miles??? OMG, 3 Miles!!!
I went to the gym today, looking forward to a few minutes of tanning to brighten up this rainy day, but I wanted to get on the treadmill first to earn it.
So, I had my new shoes, some of those things that are supposed to shape up your legs ... Read more
A whole new world!
I finally went to the gym on Friday, almost on a whim. I have really been wanting to get in there for months, so I finally decided to not be intimidated or embarrassed that I haven't been in there since September, or that my payments might be a... Read more
Prozac and waaaay too much sleep
This has been a strange week sleep-wise. During the weekdays, I kept up with my routine and schedule pretty well, but yesterday and today I have totally not followed much of a schedule.
Twice this week I wasn't able to eat enough calories ... Read more
