Never give up - again

Saturday, August 23, 2014      4 comments

Another Try

Wednesday, July 23, 2014      4 comments

I'm back on track for the umpteenth time, but you only lose when you completely give up, right? This month is looking good for weight loss. I just hope I can keep it up and make a good difference over the coming months. I plan to. I plan to. ... Read more

Workout buddy

Sunday, December 01, 2013      3 comments

I received a challenge to ask someone to join me on my next workout. I think it will more likely be the other way around - I will ask to join someone in THEIR workout, since that is my biggest weak point!... Read more

Friday, November 29, 2013      3 comments

Is it OK to post goals when you aren't sure you will reach them? I think it must be. If you don't have a target, how do yo know when you hit it or miss it? I reviewed my goals today re my weight loss journey. I need to somehow kick start it... Read more

Today's accomplishments

Sunday, August 11, 2013      4 comments

Just this minute I have been thinking about what I have accomplished today, as opposed to what I HAVEN'T accomplished. It feels good to think about it from that point of view. Have you ever kept a running list of things you have done for the day... Read more

Today I'm going to make sure I carry my water bottle with me everywhere. I want to increase my water intake and see if it keeps me feeling full longer. I'm sure my joints and muscles feel better when they are hydrated. Water is good for me in so... Read more

Do you have any planning tips? Here's what I do. I have a habit of getting tomorrow's breakfast and lunch ready the night before, especially for work days. Then I add the items to my food tracker. It helps so much to have things just ready to go... Read more

Cautiously smiling

Thursday, April 11, 2013      2 comments

Since I 'confessed' about my lapse in motivation, I seem to be getting back on track. This week has been a pretty good one, really. I've stuck to my calorie allowance, walked more and been a bit more hopeful that I can stick with my healthier li... Read more

Doing OK

Tuesday, April 09, 2013      3 comments

I did OK today with eating and a little better with walking. We had a day out, finding quotes for motorhome alterations and getting things sorted out. I drove the jolly beast for the first time today. It was nerve-wracking but I think I shall ge... Read more

I thought after Easter I was back on track. I managed two or three days last week alrigth, but the rest of the week was not good. Maybe it has to do with the fact that I have been trying to change to a healthy lifestyle since January, with s-l-o... Read more

My future self

Monday, March 18, 2013      4 comments

I tried to think about what life could be like 10 years from now, if I stick to my goals for a healthier lifestyle. I must have a poor imagination because it was hard to imagine life as very different, except that I do remember what it was like ... Read more
