Day 17: Do not covet...
Thursday, January 18, 2018      3 comments

Yesterday I had to put myself in check a few times. I had to remind myself not to compare MY journey or progress to anyone else. I had a couple of moments of jealousy and self-depreciation. We decided in the office we would all try to b... Read more
Day 15: Cranky Day
Tuesday, January 16, 2018      1 comments

I'm cranky today. I don't know why. I got plenty of sleep (even overslept) and woke up feeling great but now I'm irritated at everything. Nothing happened - no events to change my tide. I just feel that way. I think now that I'm think... Read more
Day 14: They say Rome wasn't built..
Monday, January 15, 2018      0 comments

They (whoever "they" are) say that Rome wasn't built in a day. I need to remember that when I want immediate results. I spent some time this weekend looking through My Fitness Pal and my weight history over the last two years. Somewhere... Read more
Days 10-13: A work in Progress
Sunday, January 14, 2018      0 comments

I skipped blogging on Thursday. I thought I would do a "Day 10/11" recap but holy smokes its now Sunday! I've been mostly on track this weekend. I took yesterday off. I tracked but did nothing else. I woke up tired yesterday. I slept po... Read more
Day 9: The Every Day "Why"
Wednesday, January 10, 2018      2 comments

One of the things that I did that may be different this time than the last few times I've tried to get back on track is I truly did think about my "Why." It's easy to say because I want to or because I feel fat, but really... Why? My big... Read more
Day 8: Alternate plans
Tuesday, January 09, 2018      2 comments

Today it rained. Maybe where you are that is no big deal but I’m in SoCal and it’s dry dry dry! My new routine is a 30ish minute walk in the am and then do my workout challenge when I get home. Because it was raining (pretty hard) this mornin... Read more
Day 7: I want to lose vs. I will lose
Monday, January 08, 2018      4 comments

I'm not sure what happened, maybe it was seeing my highest weight ever on the scale, maybe it was none of my clothes fitting anymore - not even the largest sizes, or it could be the way I just feel about myself. I don't think it was one thing, ... Read more
Day 6: It’s not about fast or far
Sunday, January 07, 2018      1 comments

I skipped blogging yesterday - I was too busy and completely forgot. Day 5 was successful and I’m keeping it all moving in the right direction. Today (Day 6) as I was walking I was tempted to try to beat my time of yesterday; I was tempted to g... Read more
Day 4: Finding new motivations
Friday, January 05, 2018      2 comments

Day 4 is just about in the books for me and it was another good day. I thought a lot today about my "why" as I went about my day. I started with a cup of coffee and some quiet time and then went for a 30 minute walk (my "new routine"). I came... Read more
Day 3: Off to a good start!
Thursday, January 04, 2018      2 comments

I decided that I am going to blog every day if I can. It helps to keep my goal in mind, and it also keeps me accountable. Accountability is something that I know I need, because I let myself off the hook too much, and I can’t do that anymore. D... Read more
Day 2: I didn't take the out I offered myself = victory
Wednesday, January 03, 2018      1 comments

Today is my Day 2 and I woke up to wind. One of my new goals that I hope to make a habit is a 30 minute walk every morning. I have asthma. The wind sucks. I'm not talking about a breeze - where we live we get wind and it ruins my day. I tol... Read more
GO DAY... maybe
Monday, January 01, 2018      1 comments

Last month I gave myself a bit of a grace period. I have done this before - achieved the success only to backslide and regain the weight. I've struggled with body changes, health changes, and emotional challenges the last few years. I'm start... Read more

On Friday I set a goal to walk 30 minutes a day and to be mindful of what I eat. I am not going to track yet, I end up feeling frustrated and quitting. I realized while walking today that one of the reasons I end up feeling frustrated by track... Read more
Convincing myself
Friday, December 01, 2017      9 comments

Here I am. Again. I feel like a failure. I look back at my history on SP and wonder why I let myself get back to where I started (plus a little). I did it. I got there. And then.... here I am again. And I've been to the "here again" party... Read more
Wake up call from the Endo doc today
Wednesday, June 29, 2016      2 comments

I have Hashimotos and up until about 2 years ago I didn't really experience the full impact of what that means to me and my body. As I'm aging I'm getting crash course in my autoimmune disease and consequently dealing with issues. One of the... Read more
