Giving Back
Thursday, June 11, 2009      2 comments

I visited with a good friend the other day who happens to work for a local charity, and she was bemoaning the lack of donations to that charity. With so many people cutting back and saving money for their own needs, many worthwhile causes face ... Read more
Not a great week
Friday, May 08, 2009      0 comments

It has not been the best week for me, goal-wise. We've been very busy, and as such, healthy food choices suffer. When you can't get to the store to get healthy ingredients, it's just too easy to reach for something unhealthy out of habit. ... Read more

Last week I had the good luck to step on my scale and see a three-pound loss after several weeks of losing a pound a week. I was thrilled! I am at 200 pounds for the first time in 5 years. The interesting thing was that I lost this weight on ... Read more

The weather has been beautiful this week. I've done most of my exercise outside this week because of that. I had to work more than usual this week, so my exercise time has been a little limited, and I've noticed that my food choices have not b... Read more
The past three days - some good, some bad
Wednesday, April 15, 2009      4 comments

I spent the past three days helping my husband chaperone his high-school jazz band to a state championship festival. It was a good time, but food options were probably not the best. I'm positive I consumed too many calories, BUT I did get some... Read more

Well, I started off the day pretty well. I got up early, got a nice walk in, and was all set for the day-- we planned on going out for a light lunch at a sandwich shop. The sandwich shop is closed for the Easter Weekend... and we ended up ... Read more
One Pound GONE!
Thursday, April 09, 2009      3 comments

I was very happy to see another pound gone on the scale this morning. I've been working hard to watch what I eat and exercise this week; and it's nice to see some more weight come off after my struggles last month. I'm hoping to maintain c... Read more
Getting back on track
Thursday, April 02, 2009      2 comments

I'm starting to get back on track. I restocked my veggies and fruit so I have no excuse not to have a salad for lunch or a healthy snack. I joined a challenge in one of my SparkTeams and it's going to push me to work out and strength train eac... Read more
Maybe I Can Work Out Tomorrow....

Apparently I'm allergic to something, because I broke out in about a zillion little red itchy spots the other day. All over my arms, legs, and stomach. They're starting to go away now thanks to allergy tablets and some prescription creams, bu... Read more
No weight lost this week *sigh*

I haven't lost any weight this week. I'm still hovering a couple of pounds over where I was a few weeks ago at 205. I really hope I can lose and get below that number by April 1 to meet my goals... I was there, then gained a few pounds, so now... Read more
The Week in Review
Sunday, March 22, 2009      2 comments

The 'real world' hit me this week. I did not feel like exercising to my videos inside---it was SO nice outside, I ditched the videos and walked outdoors. I love SP's Fitness Walks feature! I walked an hour or more most days this week. ... Read more
Lacking Motivation Lately
Thursday, March 19, 2009      2 comments

I am seriously lacking in motivation. It's hard to get back on-track after a vacation! I've been going for walks outdoors in the nice weather, but haven't done my 30-day shred or other DVD workouts for awhile. My husband brought home Girl Sco... Read more
I'm Back!

We had a great time on our vacation, and I'm sad it's over. Yes, I ate too much and exercised too little, but only gained a pound or two, so I'm pleased. I think the weight I've 'gained' is also due to too much salt intake, so my water is goin... Read more
Gone for a few Days
Sunday, March 08, 2009      4 comments

Hubby and I are taking a much-needed mini-vacation this week. I don't know if we'll have internet, so I'm going to take a notebook to track my food. I'll probably eat more than I should, but will at least try to make healthier choices. I've p... Read more
25% of the way there!

I don't feel very well today. I don't want to exercise and I feel like sitting on the couch all day reading a book, but I have a ton of work to do in the house before we leave for our mini-vacation next week. I stepped on the scale this mo... Read more
