A New Beginning
I am starting over this week with a new determination! My hectic schedule will be lighter for the next 4 weeks so I am going to use this time for renewal, to take care of ME. It has been so long since I have done anything healthy for myself. ... Read more
Why I have failed
I haven't been real honest with myself, among other things, this past summer--up to the present. I have been gaining back all the progress I have made this past year and blaming it on stress and lack of time in my schedule (which has been true)... Read more
Trying to Get out of a Funk
I keep making promises to get back on track and can't seem to make myself. Broken promises are terrible morale boosters! Today I took a walk with my daughter. Yes, it was HOT and STICKY and our pace and distance was less than I would normally ... Read more
I'm Going For My Next 15...
Well, I was quite disappointed at my regression. I have backslid some. The scale only shows about 3 lbs up but I know I have lost some of my muscle tone and replaced it with fat :( whaaa! But I am looking ahead to my next 15 lbs! Since I sta... Read more
Well, I went on my trip a few pounds shy of my goal. Now I am baking in this Texas heat with no motivation to exercise and food prices through the roof! I may take the summer off, hehe I already have taken 1 month off!! It's just too hot to do... Read more
Week 6: Cardio Free Diet
I only had one pound loss this week, *sigh* but I am hoping some of that includes muscle gain. My measurements show a slight progress so I have to consider this as a success! Now I need a 2lb/week loss to make my goal of 167 by May 11. This w... Read more
Week 4/5: Cardio Free Diet
I slacked last week and didn't even blog so it's no wonder I didn't have any loss. I think I was so emotional from PMS, (you'd think I would know by now that's the cause!) Now it is beginning the 5th week and I have even more ground to cover to... Read more

This is starting week 3 and I am so excited! Only 2 full weeks on this plan (not following 100%) and I have lost 5lbs! And built muscle, I'm sure. Last night I tried on all my clothes from my closet...what used to be too tight is starting to ... Read more
Week 2: Cardio-Free Diet
This is the beginning of week 2. I am finding it way hard to stay in control over the weekend (how many times have I said that before?!) I didn't do strength 3x, only twice, and tried to stay true to the menu in the book. I lost 2 lbs. during ... Read more

Feeling down, but looking up...
Well, I have been out of my routine especially exercise wise (and food wise) for over 2 weeks. We were saddened to find out that a family member has cancer. To make matters worse our family was in a pretty serious wreck (on Beltway 8) Feb. 16.... Read more
I have really been slacking on logging my food! I do ok during the early part of the day and then afternoon and evening I fall apart. This is the most hectic part of my day for sure! Kids coming home, homework, planning dinner etc. but that i... Read more
My Feet Hurt!
OK, so I didn't go walking Sunday like I had planned...by the time I woke up it was drizzly out. It was prob best cuz I don't think I would have gone today if I went yesterday. It was mid 70s (in Feb.!!) and a bit muggy, but I walked! I kept t... Read more
