Just got back from vacation, which was much needed. We went to Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island, north of Jacksonville, Florida. Unfortunately, Florida is going through a major wildfire season, and one of the worst ones was due west of where we... Read more

Looks like I'm going to have to tone down the walking, either in the frequency or distance. Seems my feet don't like it all that much. This is a problem I've dealt with numerous times, mainly from attempting to run/jog. I thought walking would b... Read more

It's going to be the hottest day of the year, so far. I still can't believe that a few weeks ago, it was in the 60s for high temperatures. Where did spring go? Oh, that's right...I live in Ohio, and spring gets shorter every year, it seems. ... Read more

Born This Way?

My whole life, I've struggled with my weight, or at least so I thought. Looking back on things, especially my high school years, I wasn't overweight. At 5'3", I weighed 110 pounds. Even at that weight, I thought I was overweight. The key word is... Read more

I spent the ride home on the bus having an internal fight with myself. To walk or not to walk? That was the question. Yeah, I was tired and grumpy, but I made myself go. And, as a result, I felt great after I got back. It's funny how little vict... Read more
The Weather
Thursday, June 02, 2011      0 comments

So glad the heat broke a little, and the humidity is down! It's like we went straight from a cold, wet spring to a HOT summer so fast. To me, the perfect weather is sunny and 75-80 degrees, but living in southwest Ohio does not provide many of ... Read more
A Small Woo Hoo Moment for Me
Wednesday, June 01, 2011      2 comments

I started walking last week. I am still walking this week. Even better, I walked when it was blazing hot outside, and I HATE heat. So, I conquered my normal excuse of, "it's too hot!" and walked for 30 minutes. Was I hot? Oh yes. Was I sweaty? V... Read more
No, I'm Not Pregnant!
Thursday, May 26, 2011      1 comments

Well, this past weekend, I was at a family function. There, I had two people ask me if I was pregnant. One of the people who asked was someone no one can stand, a girlfriend of one of my husband's uncles. She is rude and overbearing, to make an ... Read more

After reading a forum posting about self sabotage, and clicking on a link to an emotional eating online support site, I decided to join this site. It's called, and it really seems like something that might work. While I find all... Read more

Okay, so, I've joined Weight Watchers...and I've actually gained weight in the past 2 weeks (1.8 pounds). It's not that big of a surprise to me, but it is disappointing. This weekend was a total bust. Between a birthday party, dinner party, and ... Read more
Resolve - Why Is It So Elusive to Me?
Thursday, July 22, 2010      1 comments

I remember I had such resolve when I went on a modified Atkins diet and lost 30 pounds back in the year 2000. I stuck to it like glue. But, I haven't been able to stick to anything I've tried for the past 10 years, and I'm not sure what's differ... Read more
The Hell That Is Benzo Withdrawal

Seems like I write nothing but getting derailed these days. I have no one to blame but myself, to be honest. But, I just keep picking myself up, dusting myself off, and trying again. It's been hard for me. You see, I'm going off of a very ... Read more
Derailed Again
Monday, April 26, 2010      1 comments

Well, looks like the 5K I do will have to be walked, because the same problem I've had in the past with falling arches started up again, even with properly fitted shoes, arch inserts, stretching, strength building exercises, etc. Aside from putt... Read more

Ugh. I'm not sure if it's the warmer weather, but my RLS has been acting up. I'm actually having it now, which is unusual. It most often strikes about an hour after I've fallen asleep. Currently, I take Requip, which up until now has been workin... Read more
