I need to go "Back to School"!
Tuesday, August 14, 2012      1 comments

As I blogged last week, my girls started school last Thursday. My goal was to get them back in routine and then get back at it! I did go to the indoor track to run last Wednesday. I made DD#2 go with me so she could keep up her endurance. Sh... Read more
Back to School!

My kids go back to school tomorrow. I will have 1 in Middle School and 2 in High School. Last year I had 1 in each level and it made the mornings pretty hectic with 3 different bus times. The elementary school bus came at 6:50 a.m.! This yea... Read more
Yesterday was my birthday

and guess what? I didn't reach any of my goals. I didn't keep my 30+ mins. of exercise daily going (although I probably got in 5 out of 7 days each week) and I didn't loose my 4 extra lbs. In fact, I'm not sure how I stand on the "back to goal... Read more
The week was a blur and my Birthday is Sunday!

TGIF! This has been one long week! I think I jinked everything on Monday by saying I didn't have to "run" anyone around. It began Monday and hasn't stopped. My kids go back to school next Thursday, so it's been a whirlwind of activities. Ne... Read more
The Weekend was a bust!

I didn't do any "exercise" and my eating was atrocious! I started out Friday by taking DD#1 to work and going straight to WalMart for stuff for DD#2's retreat. I still had plenty of time to go to the indoor track and run, but I just didn't fee... Read more
Gosh, it's hot!

Had to take DD#2 to her High School open house yesterday. After about an hour of walking around the hot HS, I was kind of wiped out when we got back home. I still had to get in my 30+ mins. of exercise and was either going to ride my bike or p... Read more
Lost a little :)

I lost a little more this week .4, so I'm down almost 3 lbs. in 4 weeks of "tracking". I've got about 4 lbs. to get back to my WW goal. We took DD#2 to the batting cages on Tuesday. DH ran on the trail at the park, but it was so hot! Af... Read more
Focus on the positive

I seem to always focus on the negative when it comes to my weight loss & maintenance journey. Instead on focusing on my weight gain and when I miss an exercise day, I need to give myself a little credit. I lost 46 lbs. and have mostly mana... Read more
A little loss is better than a gain!

I weighed myself this morning (official) and was down .4 from last week. So in 3 weeks of "back to tracking" (except for Sunday), I've lost 2.4 lbs. Not great, but not terrible. I feel more in control of my eating and my exercise is going pre... Read more
Curse the weekends!

I started out the weekend running on the indoor track on Friday. I took DD#1 to work and went straight to the rec. center to run. It was a pretty good run, but my knee was bothering me, so I only ran for 2 miles and then walked for about 10 mi... Read more
Drat, I broke the streak again!
Friday, July 13, 2012      0 comments

My new summer goal was to get 30+ mins. of exercise every day. I went strong for 25 days and then missed a day. I started right back up the next day, but hate to report that 5 days later, I broke the streak again! I took DD#3 to her Hip ... Read more
Gained a Little :(

I blogged on Monday that I went over my points Saturday & Sunday. Even with my activity points, I was still over on Sunday (even though I didn't use all of my "weekly points"). Anyway, I weighed this morning (official day) and I was up .2. I ... Read more
Reflection on Previous Blog (& amendment)
Monday, July 09, 2012      1 comments

I usually blog a couple of times a week. My blog is like my journal. I usually don't blog twice in a day (slow time @ work!). I mentioned in my earlier blog that I was "even" with my points & activity points. I was completing yesterdays entr... Read more
The Streak was Broken!
Monday, July 09, 2012      0 comments

I went 3 1/2 weeks with my exercise streak of 30+ mins. of exercise a day. My goal was to go to the end of August. Friday was good. DH, DD#3 and I rode bikes for almost an hour. DD#3 is still a little shaky on her new bike and was riding slo... Read more

I have 3 daughters - 16, 14 & 11. All 3 of my daughters are tall (DH is 6'5" and I'm 5'7"). Because both my husband and I struggle with our weight, I'm always concerned about my daughters. DD#1 is borderline overweight (at last dr. visit her... Read more
