a new year, a new journey
Tuesday, January 06, 2015      7 comments

Do you ever feel like you have so many different balls in the air, so many different things you feel you need to tackle that of course almost all of them come crashing to the ground? That sums up the past few months for me. So I'm dustin... Read more
as things slow down
Wednesday, October 22, 2014      7 comments

I reset all of my sparkpeople streaks on Monday as I've decided to just let go of the past and start over where I am now. I'll take what I've learned and get back on track, but forgive myself my mistakes and move on. Easier said than don... Read more
feeling like I'm in relapse
Wednesday, October 01, 2014      10 comments

I've been struggling the past few months. I had issues with bats and changing meds causing issues followed by vacation, it's a crappy time of year for personal loss anniversaries and busy, busy, busy time at work. All are excuses at the end of... Read more
Been awhile - Goals for BLC Fall frenzy
Tuesday, September 16, 2014      5 comments

I had a crazy summer. It included dealing with evil bat in my house that meant not only did the cats have to get booster rabies shots but everyone in the house had to get them to. There has been a rabies epidemic in my area and my doctor said ... Read more
Goals for the BLC Sizzling Summer Slimdown
Tuesday, June 17, 2014      10 comments

I survived my second fitness class last night and it really pushed me out of my comfort zone in all the ways it's supposed to. I might have complained while being forced to hold plank position followed by push-ups, but I can notice how far I've... Read more
moving away from the comfort zone
Wednesday, June 11, 2014      10 comments

The past few months I've been battling a plateau of sorts where I lose a pound/gain a pound. After the debacle with the illness and the antibiotics week where I gained six pounds, I was feeling slightly out of control. I decided it was time ... Read more
staying positive when the scale hurts to look at
Wednesday, May 21, 2014      11 comments

Sometimes I gain weight and I can pinpoint exactly what I did wrong - usually involving foods I chose to eat in large portions - and I can usually roll with that. I don't like it, but all I can do is keep learning and living. But I really ha... Read more
the end of the BLC Spring Into Action
Tuesday, May 20, 2014      8 comments

It's hard to believe the spring BLC Spring Into Action finishes up today with LCW and last weigh-in tomorrow. My goals got slightly waylaid by life and health issues, but I'm grateful for the other Diamonds and their support and having a place... Read more
I'm having one of those "why me" type of days
Tuesday, May 13, 2014      6 comments

First there was the surgical procedure that came out of nowhere, where I met with a doctor and then the very next week I had to go into the hospital for out patient surgery. I was handling the pain and doing well the first few days after and th... Read more
trying to stay focused on the positive
Monday, May 12, 2014      6 comments

Some days and weeks it's really hard to stay focused on the positive. At least for myself. For other people, I can always see how it can get better and not to give up, but when it comes to myself? It can be really hard on the days when I'm fe... Read more
Life and BLC 25 Goals
Monday, May 05, 2014      4 comments

I kept meaning to make a blog post, but I'd get distracted by life or shiny things. I had a surgical procedure last Thursday and I've been recovering from that for the past four days. I had some freaking out prior to the appointment, mostly ab... Read more
a note from the universe
Thursday, March 13, 2014      10 comments

I get a daily email from Mike Dooley's website - Notes from the Universe - and a lot like listening to the Joel Osteen podcast, it always seems to fit something I've been thinking about or trying to deal with. Yes, universe, I'm listening. ... Read more
BLC Spring Challenge - Goals & more goals
Wednesday, March 12, 2014      13 comments

I'll be the first to admit that I didn't succeed in quite the way I had hoped for the BLC winter challenge. In focusing on the bright side, taking part in the challenge did help keep me going and probably helped to avoid gaining a lot of weigh... Read more
my building blocks to getting back on track
Monday, March 10, 2014      9 comments

I continue to work on this week's goal of getting my sleep routine in order. I've mostly managed to get to sleep on time and wake up on time, setting a normal pattern for myself. It's definitely helped stepping away from the computer and putti... Read more
picking up the pieces
Wednesday, March 05, 2014      10 comments

I wanted to thank people for the encouraging comments and ideas on the last post. I'm still trying to muster up the motivation I need to get back on track, but I've decided it's a new day. I've also decided to focus smaller for a little bit to... Read more
