Thursday, March 14, 2013      3 comments

First off I want to send out a possible TMI alert... I've always put on a little water weight every month right before my period starts but I'm finding over the last year that the amount of water weight gain is quite something. I took a va... Read more

Last year I participated in my first Relay For Life in support of the Canadian Cancer Society. It was such an emotional experience for me and with cancer touching so many important people in my life, it's a cause that I feel compelled to suppor... Read more
Tired but worth the effort

So I'm struggling with motivation most nights to get my 2-mile walk in. I'm sure for some of you 2 miles is a drop in the bucket but for me it's my daily goal. I don't walk 10,000 steps every day as recommended. My goal is about 6000-7000. H... Read more

I've always been a procrastinator. Must be why my parents made me do my homework before the TV could go on when I was growing up. Funny...lately I find that I haven't really rid myself of that bad habit. I STILL procrastinate! I have abo... Read more

Today is my 6th day of staying on track with my food AND exercising. Eating well isn't that difficult for me because I really like healthy food. Filling up on it and avoiding the things that I shouldn't eat is the easier part of my journey. ... Read more
Remembering where I came from

I have been thinking about how I haven't been too happy about the way I look and feel and then reminded myself last night that I actually have really come a long way from where I was before. It was while I was 25 minutes into a 30 minute w... Read more

I was pretty much bang on with my caloric intake today - almost a perfect mix of fat, protein, and carbs (+/- less than 1 percent). Getting exercise in was a bit of a challenge because I've been sedentary for so long. It has become too easy to... Read more

A Little "Binge-y"

I ran into a colleague on my way into the office building on Monday. She stopped me to offer her condolences and we chatted for a few minutes. She lost her mother tragically in a car accident about 8 months ago. I was headed up the elevator a... Read more
Slowly Healing...One Day at a Time
Sunday, November 04, 2012      2 comments

I'm taking it one day at a time. It's the best I can do right now. I've gone back to work (busiest time of the year in my business) and I'm going full tilt. For an overachiever, it's difficult to feel so behind the 8-ball. I've been so b... Read more

Pickles, pickles, everywhere!
Monday, September 24, 2012      3 comments

A couple of weeks ago I made dill pickles with my Mom. I canned tomatoes prior to that. My Mom has been having fun doing what she used to be able to do on her own (she's no longer mobile and can't do much by herself anymore) and I've been havi... Read more

I had a very busy day at work today. I was in a series of meetings with various client contacts and 2 of them ran grossly overtime. I have a new key contact and I am struggling with them. He's a very nice man but has very little urgency and i... Read more

Just over a week ago I was really struggling (as I have been for the last year) to try to find the motivation to get myself back on track. I'm not sure why but so far since then, I've been hitting the mark almost daily with balanced nutrition w... Read more
