6am and Already Feeling a Sense of Acomplishment
Thursday, January 07, 2016      3 comments

I use to run two miles, or more, nearly every morning. Then my kids started an earlier start school high school, needed reminders to wake up, needed rides, and my workout time became inconsistent. I have not gone out early morning to run in mo... Read more
Finding My Groove

Starting out is always the hardest, wether it be starting a new job or being a first time mom. The same is true with fitness and food plans. I've slacked enough during the end of last year that I sort of feel like I am starting new. I am not ... Read more

Day four sugar free is going well. I'm the little engine that can, so I believe can do this a full year. I'm sweet enough without added sugar. I actually feel really good. My mood feels more stable and my energy is good. The idea that I'm n... Read more

Ive been on winter break the last two weeks. It's a perk to working in education. I didn't do everything over the break that I intended, but I got a few things done. Today I'm going to clean my room. It's very messy, but last year I organi... Read more

Ugh! So I've been doing good since the new year, but December I was on a diet of wine and chocolate with lots of meals out and not so much fitness. Today I got real and stepped on the scale! Yikes! It said 222... I haven't seen that number in y... Read more

Day 1 of my resolution of no sugar for a year went alright. I've been weening myself off it for a week, so no huge food cravings or headaches. I did mess up a little. I had some leftover spinach dip from New Years. I ate a few bites before lo... Read more

I like New Years, it's the reminder that today is a new day and I can make it what I want. Every moment really is ours to shape our lives, but this one j... Read more

Hello, my name is Jeannie and I'm a sugar junkie. So I've been on a sugar binge for over a week now... I'm feeling low energy. I'm feeling blue. It started on Halloween. I've eaten a ton of candy. It's going to stop today! I swear the firs... Read more

I am going to socialize this weekend a lot, but that means temptation. I want to endulge in moderation. I don't want to find myself in a sugar haze passed on the couch with wrappers all around me like the sugar junkie I can be. Tonight I'm g... Read more
long lost teddy bear
Wednesday, October 28, 2015      13 comments

I'm about to write about something very personal, and I'm probably going to delete this, maybe even right after I post it. My son just came in the living room with my childhood teddy bear and said, "mom isn't this yours". I slept with that bea... Read more

The last week wasn't my best week ever. I had the flu. One of my kids was cited months ago for alcohol possession and we had a court date for that. Dates were canceled. There were issues at work. My mood was just bleak and I felt scatterbra... Read more

My friend gave me this book called "The Five Minute Journal". You start out in the morning writing what you're grateful for. The next spot is "what would make today great". Last is a daily affirmation. At night you reflect on 3 amazing thing... Read more

Sunday I ran a half marathon... Well, it was more a crawl, than a run. I completed a Half marathon on Sunday. It was like 97 degrees. A vast amount of it was on the beach, facing the sun, with no shade, no breeze... No fun! It was brutal. Sw... Read more

My weight loss journey is really more of a pursuit of health and happiness journey. Sometimes I focus on the numbers... That number on the tag of my pants, the one on that little box I keep stepping on, but it's not so much about the number. I... Read more
The Plan
Sunday, September 27, 2015      2 comments

Today I did an easy 10.8 mile hike to help get ready for my up coming half marathon. I met 5 girls, early morning, and we all had our therapy time. One of them said sarcastically, "my husband tells me other women go shopping together". One fr... Read more
