    Just weighed in at the Health Dept. and I stayed the same again this week. My DH lost 1 lb. I'm not too worried, but would like to lose some weight. I ate healthy and exercised and I feel good about my past week. The scale will show a loss at some point. I am optimistic! Some of us lose... Read more

Because it really could have been MUCH worse!! There I was faced with the inevitable fruit of my all or nothing mentality, that voic... Read more

  • Feeling Results After Three Weeks

    1/26/2015 10:40:40 PM, by CHROMACERL183

    Tomorrow marks three weeks of starting the process of becoming healthier. This morning I started 'feeling' results. 1) While getting ready for work, I slipped on my pants and realized I needed to button the inner button because it was a bit loose. I haven't been able to do that comfortably in s... Read more

  • Success and Using Creatures as Distractions

    1/23/2015 8:43:04 PM, by CHROMACERL183

    These last two days have been very successful. I've been controlling the snacking with scheduled snack times and filling (healthy) foods and I've conquered 4 rounds of stairs at work each day. Today I even went another two rounds in the afternoon. I've found a snack that I really like that hel... Read more

  • Snackzilla and the Stair Climb

    1/21/2015 10:39:42 PM, by CHROMACERL183

    Boy I was snacky snacky today. I planned out all of my meals, including snacks, and everything measured up great. But throughout the day I was nickel and dimeing myself with little treats. First there was the Prickly Pear Cactus candy that a colleague brought back from Phoenix. (*sarcasm* Had to try... Read more

  • Noticable Changes on My Journey

    1/19/2015 11:13:46 PM, by ROBINRDK

    When spark people suggested blogging about the changes in my healthy lifestyle the first thing that came to my mind was how much water I drink now. Some days I just don't drink enough water however the plus side is that I have quit drinking so much pop. It used to be that every day around 3 I needed... Read more

  • Recent Fitness Videos and Review of My First Two Weeks

    1/19/2015 10:07:37 PM, by CHROMACERL183

    Yesterday I finally did the two cardio videos I was planning on doing on Saturday. The first was a simple walking/dance cardio so it was easy to keep up with. The second was a strange bollywood themed video that was semi hard to keep up with, but I did it. I kept getting interrupted by the little on... Read more

  • Feeling Good While Ignoring the Scale

    1/18/2015 10:08:11 PM, by ROBINRDK

    Losing weight and learning to eat healthy have became important to me. I step on the scale once in awhile to see how I am doing however when I step on it too often I become discouraged with my endeavors of weight loss. If i focus on how i am looking in the mirror and how I feel I become motivated to... Read more

    1/18/2015 2:37:41 PM, by WALNUTT1961

    My DH and I made it through the first full week of our 12 week Health Dept. Community Challenge. It has certainly been challenging and humorous at times! He lost 7 lbs. by cutting out most of the sweets and snacks he eats at work. He cut down to one spoonful of sugar in his coffee, too. He actu... Read more

  • Afternoon Slip Up and Ditched Cardio

    Today was a productive day cleaning-wise. I finally cleaned out the kitchen cabinets; organizing the dishes and finally paring down all those plastic grocery bags! I had cereal for breakfast and a chicken quesadilla for lunch. All was going as planned until the early afternoon munchies set in.... Read more

  • Motivational Inspirations

    1/16/2015 10:34:57 PM, by ROBINRDK

    One issue that makes me do what I need to do, eat what I should eat and journal what I do and eat is that it feels good to be thinner. I recall being heavier and I was more out of breath, lacked energy and it was disgusting to buy clothes that were larger. I want to be rid of those clothes as a moti... Read more

  • Stretching the Aches Away

    1/16/2015 8:30:23 PM, by CHROMACERL183

    Today I had shoulder, neck, and lower back pain from the last two day's workouts: 1) Cardio and core Wednesday and 2) 15 minutes of walking the stairs yesterday. Usually I would take OTC pain reliever to ease the pain, but instead I did a yoga video to help relieve the aches. Not only did my entire ... Read more

    I saw my oncologist / hematologist 2 days ago, and all my blood work was normal and he told me l was going to be able to go off of Coumadin. I have been on it for 10 years! This is so exciting for me, because the long term effects are not good. Praising God! I put a new picture up so you can s... Read more

I gained about 3 pounds over the holidays and really wanted to work hard to get that back off. Good news! I weighed today and the 3 pounds are gone! That made my day. ... Read more
