How can time pass so quickly? I'm surprised it's been a year since I've been on site. What happened? Basically a whole lot of nothing. Stalled weight loss and regaining pounds lost. I feel physically worse, days with a variety of aches and pa... Read more
Begin Again

Ok, I'm back. I have to do something. I haven't really been happy with myself since I resumed old patterns and eating habits. I think maybe I overwhelmed myself. I couldn't sustain what I really wanted to be a "lifestyle" change. I'm happy... Read more

Part of my journey is that while knowing I'm on a path of progress, I still must accept who I am and where I'm at in my journey. This I hope will allow me to not be discouraged and sabotage my efforts. I walked a 5k yesterday. I can't rem... Read more

I'm really feeling positive today. My weight loss is on track and I'm feeling good about my workouts. I also am wearing a pair of jeans today that I haven't worn for at least two years because they got so uncomfortable. I'm looking forward to... Read more
2010 Goals
Wednesday, March 31, 2010      2 comments

I'm not sure I actually wrote goals for this year. In the past when I used the Franklin Covey system, goal setting was a regular part of my life. As I think back on those goals, most are still viable..maybe my progress or steps have changed. ... Read more

As of Tuesday, I was back on track with my typical food and exercise schedule. I knew my weight would probably be up this week from using food as coping this past weekend. Up it was, 1.5 pounds. It's ok, I knew why and how and that it was onl... Read more

Molly, our kitty of 13 years, passed away Friday night. I don't know how this always happens but it was late evening and I had to take her to the hospital as Martin had to get ready for work. Molly has primarily been his special pet. So, I am... Read more
Not Much
Sunday, March 14, 2010      2 comments

Having trouble getting my calories in today. Slept in late, then Martin fixed oatmeal so the day got started later than usual. Ate lunch but it wasn't much, had a snack, ate dinner and am still 500 calories short. I know I will have a snack b... Read more
New Awareness

Walking outside is harder than walking on the treadmill. Hmm. On the treadmill, I'm able to push speed and incline. When I walked on the hike/bike trail today, I was amazed at how much more winded I was with the hills. I also walked at a slo... Read more
Something's Off
Wednesday, March 03, 2010      3 comments

I sit here at 3:00am wondering why I can't sleep. Went to bed at 10:00pm exhausted from an upset tummy day so I've gotten 5 hours in but I'd still like to be asleep. Yesterday I woke up early from the tummy but two nights in a row is troubleso... Read more
Responding to the Scale
Friday, February 26, 2010      1 comments

After weighing in today, I'm not very pleased. I know the scale goes up and down. Why can't it be a down day when my "official" weigh-in occurs? Why do I have to react to this somewhat arbitrary number? Do I have to let my mood react to this... Read more

Thursday, February 25, 2010      1 comments

Having commited myself to working out on a regular schedule I am now becoming faced with other opportunities to spend my time. It would be easy to get distracted and make a choice that pulls me out of exercising. Being in my 9th week, I still ... Read more
I Love Seeing Progress
Saturday, February 20, 2010      2 comments

I love seeing progress is my theme for the weekend. Yesterday I decided to hop, well, no step, on the elliptical machine. I figured I would see how I would do, if all I could do was 1 or 1.5 minutes then that was ok and I would build from ther... Read more

"The next time you are faced with opposition, instead of looking at it as a source of anxiety, view it as an opportunity! Can you apply what you have learned to other areas of your life? Will this experience make you stronger and wiser next time... Read more
Love My Weekends
Sunday, February 14, 2010      1 comments

I always have so much more energy on the weekends and simply love how I spend my time. Yesterday was about Martin and me and time together. I really enjoy it when he works out with me and then we had a fabulous dinner. I did pretty well; shar... Read more
