Yesterday was a good day. Nothing in particular happened, nothing spectacular - it was just a good day. Went to Zumba and was actually able to keep up with the entire class - knew most of the routines. I have noticed that my energy level is u... Read more

Wow its been over a year since I've blogged. I'm still here on my journey. I gained some weight during the winter and I was hanging off the wagon - didn't completely fall off. I am slowly getting back on track and getting my focus back. Fort... Read more

Hi - its been awhile since I've blogged. Life sometimes gets in the way and we get side tracked. During my side-traction (yes I make up words occasionally) I didn't fall off the wagon. I wasn't tracking as faithfully as I had, but I was very ... Read more

I haven't posted anything for a while because life has been a little busy and sometimes overwhelming. And not so overwhelming that I've gotten completely off track, but I have gotten "side tracked". Not tracking my food as carefully, not getti... Read more

Haven't blogged lately, but I'm still SPARKING along. I've been fighting a cold and it finally won, but it didn't keep me down the usual length of time. I was feeling better in 3 days and I'm convinced that its because of my healthier lifestyl... Read more
