Potato chips for supper!
Monday, April 07, 2014      2 comments

Yes, potato chips. With dip too. Why? because I wanted them and I gave into temptation at the grocery store. Do I see that as a problem? No, I don't. I should be able to have what I want now and then just because I want it. I did howe... Read more
Managing less than perfect.

Like many people, I have a very busy life. I work 50 hours a week, and am fortunate to own my own little piece of heaven, my 14 acre hobby farm stocked with the usual critters. I also keep 1 horse in training about 45 minutes from the house and... Read more

Lately I've been a little frustrated with my scale. Despite my best efforts to stay in my calorie range and literally working my butt off, I have been getting a lot of fluctuating numbers on my scale and none of them reflect a loss. I hav... Read more

One successful journey and a lot of starts and stops. That pretty much sums up my experience on SP for the last 2 years. After losing 60lbs, I hit a plateau that I just couldn't get away from. My MD sent me to a dietitian who totally rippe... Read more

I know what I need to do. 1) Drink more water- Yet I sit at my desk and drink very little when the water cooler is literally steps from my desk.... 2) Eat a healthy breakfast - I buy the stuff. I have time while waiting on the cof... Read more

Well, I'm almost half way to my goal. Thought I would be here quicker than this but it has been quite a ride and I've had a few setbacks from illness and injury. Will probably lose another 6-10 weeks starting in January as I need surgery on my ... Read more

Lately I've been thinking about a few things in regards to eating healthy. Here are two thoughts that keep coming back to me. ONE: I've heard a lot of hype that eating healthy is expensive. In my case, my grocery bill has gone down by at le... Read more

Down 48lbs now so I decided to "finally" ride my horse last night. Pete is my gelding that I bred and raised with hopes of showing one day. By the time he was old enough to start training though, I was too big to ride him so he has been leased o... Read more

Apparently they think I need to up my cardio? (funny)
Monday, July 25, 2011      2 comments

So, I don't need to remind anyone just how hot it was last week with heat indexes over 100. Needless to say, the grass did NOT get mowed and I did NOT walk my usual mile at the park during lunch, nor did I do my evening walk down the road. I DID... Read more
