TEN Mile Walk - What a Journey!
Sunday, June 24, 2012      14 comments

I've been following my training program for the MS Challenge Walk pretty religiously, not missing a day to walk during the week - just maybe doing it on a Tuesday instead of Wednesday or something like that. Today we had a 10 mile walk to do. I ... Read more
Fundraiser was not very successful....
Saturday, June 23, 2012      11 comments

I've spent the last two days cleaning like a madwoman (with DH helping a LOT!) and baking last minute stuff for the bake sale. We brought out all of the PartyLite product and sent a few Facebook reminders out preparing for the day. I knew my mom... Read more

The last three weeks have been a challenge and also a great change for me. I LOVE walking outside in the spring and summer! This week it was 4 miles Tuesday, 4 miles Thursday (which I did yesterday in two 2-mile increments due to time constraint... Read more
Move Over Insanity - I'm Training For a WALK!
Wednesday, May 30, 2012      10 comments

I made the decision yesterday to stop doing the Insanity program and focus on my walking training for the MS Challenge Walk. I need to walk 4 days a week from 3-20 miles so that will take up way too much time to continue to do Insanity well and ... Read more

I have seen this walk advertised on the National MS Society website and wanted to sign up last year but didn't have anyone who wanted to join me and I was really not in the right shape or mindset to do it. Fast forward to this year. I told my si... Read more
My Mother's Day

Got to sleep in yesterday and logged my 3 pounds weight gain in without really sweating it. I wasn't happy, but really took it in stride better than I would have even a couple of months ago since I still got two dresses - both in size 8 - shoppi... Read more
Happy and Not Happy at the Same Time
Sunday, May 13, 2012      7 comments

First, I'll start with what did NOT make me happy today and end with the positive stuff. That way I can vent the stuff that's annoying and end up happier. I gained 3 pounds this week. Started Insanity on Monday and have had some muscle sore... Read more
Rethinking My Goal Weight
Friday, May 11, 2012      9 comments

I've been pondering lately how much I really want to get to my goal of 145. I think I have this mental block that is telling my head I can't get down that low. I just am not believing it since I've been on this plateau since July. Everyone... Read more

Today is rainy and yucky outside so my walk is out for the day. DH and I went on a long walk yesterday and I really could have gone longer but we cut it short because we had to go to the grocery store. Yesterday I ate too much. I had breakf... Read more

This morning started off normally. Take the kids to school, go to my sister's house to spend time with her before she went to work, go to the gym for my strength training session with my trainer. I hopped on the elliptical to do my 5 minute warm... Read more

Gold's Gym Challenge Results
Monday, April 16, 2012      13 comments

I should be happier but for some reason I'm not. I lost a total of 6 pounds in 12 weeks, which is good in my book. Lost a couple of inches off my hips and waist, nothing off my thigh but who cares. I felt pretty good! Then I looked at the pictur... Read more
Vacation Was Fun But Glad to Be Back
Sunday, April 15, 2012      10 comments

As some of you know I'm a creature of habit. I like my routines and really get uncomfortable when I'm out of them. I really needed this vacation with my family and loved being gone. I love road trips and we drove to Florida since it was a lot mo... Read more
"I'll Feel Better When I'm Done......"
Sunday, April 08, 2012      11 comments

The alarm went off at 7:15 this morning. Rather late for me since I usually get up between 5-5:30 every day during the week but since we're on vacation we've been staying up later. I REALLY didn't want to get up. I REALLY didn't want to do my pl... Read more
There's a Reason WHY I Don't Eat Out A Lot!
Friday, April 06, 2012      9 comments

Good news! Today I stayed pretty well within my calorie range but not perfect. I'm happy with today. AND I got in my hotel room workout this morning. So I'm happy with THAT! Found out the fitness center at our hotel is only open 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.... Read more
