This was a beautiful day for a hike. I am so grateful I was out before the more gusty winds came along. This is my first attempt to add pictures to a blog so here goes... ... Read more
Where did I go?
Tuesday, May 24, 2011      3 comments

I was curious to see when I last blogged and was really surprised to see that it was in February! I guess I was busy... My exercise is really not on track so I have been bummed by that. I am grateful that I will soon have more time to get out... Read more
One Year Ago...
Monday, February 28, 2011      6 comments

I said that I was just sick to death of me. I was not happy with how I was not in control of my eatting and how my clothes were fitting. Fortunately, I said this to the right person and was offered the support I needed to get extremely serious... Read more
Changing What I Can
Monday, December 20, 2010      4 comments

Ok, so winter is not helping me to maintain my current weight zone. As of today I have offically broken out of my top number on the scale. I cannot change the weather. With the lack of exercise, particularly outdoor running, my weight has con... Read more

We are now in the season to think on what we are grateful for. The list for me is long. Today I am grateful for all areas in my life; home, work, health, mind, and spirit. Now none of these areas are going exactly as I would have them but I a... Read more
I Hate Migraines
Wednesday, October 13, 2010      2 comments

I am home today due to a migraine that hit me about 1:30 a.m. Not the best way to wake up. I am feeling better now but I am pretty sure a bus ran over my head (migraine hangover). There is also the bonus of feeling completely out of it due to... Read more
Day 200!
Thursday, September 16, 2010      3 comments

I have been on this leg of my journey of 200 days now. Many times before I have been able to successfully lose a certain amount of weight but always regained it when I quit focusing on weight loss. This time has and will be different because t... Read more
I need exercise!
Thursday, September 09, 2010      3 comments

I am feeling a bit out of sorts because I have not exercised for days now! My last run was on Monday. This used to never be a problem. I would count when I would exercise not when I did not. I patted myself on the back every time I did anyth... Read more
5 Mile Event
Saturday, August 21, 2010      4 comments

I never thought I would run five miles in public with other runners. But I did! I even took third place in my age category (40-49). And believe it or not, there were more than three of us in that range. A really cool thing was meeting the We... Read more
I can't fix everything.
Thursday, August 12, 2010      3 comments

I thought that losing weight would somehow solve all my problems, like magic. It didn't. I still have clothes that don't fit right, mostly bras now. I still don't have a huge bank account. I still have a dirty house and a high maintainence t... Read more
Success comes in many forms.

I am on day 160 of my food plan. For the most part I have followed this plan to a tee within my bounds of control. This changed last night while at my daughter's 16th birthday party at the lake (Highline, for the locals). I did overeat the pi... Read more
Things that I think work:
Monday, July 05, 2010      3 comments

My friends keep asking how I lost weight. First, I tell them about Sparkpeople (but only a small handful have bothered to check it out). The deeper answer includes my food and fitness. I change what I eat and do and I TRACK ALL OF... Read more
Dressing Room Experience
Saturday, July 03, 2010      4 comments

So there I was standing there looking in the mirror at me wearing a size 4 pair of pants! Must be a fluke, mistake with tagging, so I try another pair...and guess what THEY FIT TOO! No way did I ever expect to get into a size 4 anything. I ju... Read more
Hike on the Grand Mesa
Saturday, June 26, 2010      4 comments

My daughter and I just got back from a beautiful hike on the Mesa. The temperature was much cooler up on the mountain. We ate at the Mesa Lakes Resort which had a great view but little to choose from on the menu. Good thing I brought my own s... Read more
