Monday, November 17, 2014      1 comments

Aloha! Good morning everyone! This past year my attendance to/on this site has been minimal. I have had several blows. The first is that my dad passed away and I realized I remained stuck in a job for many years. The job that was supposed t... Read more

A bit of a ramble but, day 2 of my going sugar free and my head is killing me. Really, it is. My L-Glutamine which was good in the past didn't work this morning. But I had an interesting thing happen to me. I went to my local Whole Paycheck and ... Read more

Today is the beginning of a new year and I wish all a happy 2014. I don't know about your experience but my 2013 was horrendous. My father, who had been sick for many years died. He had four different types of cancer. It was very hard to watch b... Read more

I know why I sabotage myself...

To be direct - I feel safer when heavier. There are three main reasons for that. 1) When I was younger, I was tall and very, very thin. Not because we had no food or anything like that. But that was my natural body build. I'm built like my mom... Read more

My junk food journey

Wednesday, March 27, 2013      2 comments

Growing up in a house where sweets and other junk food wasn't allowed was bad because I didn't learn balance. Anything overly sweet or overly salty naturally called my name. I remember finding some small uneaten pieces of candy in a container wh... Read more

I really don't want to lose the weight...

Really I don't. I mean I do, but I feel like my focus has been on the wrong thing. I know what to do - eat right, exercise and so on. My parents were vegetarians in the 70's. Tofu cheese circa 1974 was a rubbery white blob on toast. It has come ... Read more

It's been a while

Sunday, March 24, 2013      0 comments

I know that it has been awhile since my last post. The truth is that it took so long because I realized that I was in mourning and decided to allow myself to grieve. Because of that I didn't spend so much time worried about posting the latest ab... Read more

As the new year rolls in...

Sunday, December 30, 2012      3 comments

This has been a huge year of change for me in many ways, more mental and emotional than anything. October of this year was the 11th anniversary of my mothers passing. Her death came four months to the day after my aunt's passing. It's significan... Read more

Hello again Spark Peeps!

Will be writing again, unlike the last time I promised. I've been dealing with a lot, including the death of my mom 10 years ago. I will write what I learn in these pages, but so far, I've been taking it easy.... Read more

It's been a long time...

Looked at my blog and realized that my last entry was on Sept 13th. Aack! And I was on quite a streak. Oh well. Something has been happening for me. Something good and I will write about it in upcoming posts. The truth is that I started to write... Read more

I did it! I broke through...

So, I finally lost three pounds. I'm so glad. My plateau has been busted through. It was hard working, increasing my workouts and noticing that my weight hadn't budged. But I kept going because, I read a lot about plateaus (thanks Sparkpeople) a... Read more

Learning when to quit

Sunday, September 09, 2012      3 comments

Well, not quite quit, but take a break. I've been on a roll as of late. Walking upwards of 2.5-3.5 miles per day. Jogging during the walk. Each day more and more. Haven't lost weight yet, but I've lost 2 inches in my waist and one in my thighs. ... Read more

And for the follow up...

Cue James Brown music: I feel good DaNa NaNaNaNa Na Na I feel good DaNa NaNaNaNa Na Na Yay!!! Yesterday I ran a great deal of distance for the first time in over 20 years and it felt good. The last time I ran was shortly after ... Read more

Well, I walk/jogged. But it is amazing. I've only done this three times in the last week or so, however, I feel good, am not depleted, and am not out of breath. Let me explain. A few years ago, I attempted to job a bit while walking the mar... Read more

Progress isn't always what I want it to be

Sunday, September 02, 2012      2 comments

Last Saturday there was a 5K at a lake by my house. I wanted to go there. Could see it in my dreams, could feel it. The walk was in honor of a local newscaster who died from cancer. It was a good cause and a fantastic way to spend a Saturday mor... Read more
