On Friday my sister and I went to a local Jazzercise open house fundraiser. I have a list of new things that I want to try and since I've never seen Jazzercise before, I wanted to check it out. We got to the studio and it was nice to see all sh... Read more

Today we took our kids to see How To Train Your Dragon. Before we left, we were talking about what size popcorn to get. I told him that I was going to pass on the buttery deliciousness and bring grapes. This is the first time I have ever done th... Read more

I've only worked out with one other person before, and it was never with my daughter. I didn't get my walking in the past 2 days (it was husbands birthday) but today I could really tell a difference, I was sluggish and I had zero energy. After l... Read more

This is the thought that brought on shame and embarrassment; it was also the thought that changed my life. I know it seems a little dramatic (I was emotional, so I was rolling with it) but this truly was a life changing thought. I haven't been t... Read more

Today is one of the most defining moments of my life. I accomplished something I never thought I could or would do. It wasn't easy and not real pretty at times, but I did it. Now, I'm not done by a long shot, but this is the half way point for m... Read more

That's how much I've lost in total. It's like I've lost a toddler...well my 2 year old son! It's funny how the body decides to work. I've been chugging along steady with losing weight and now for the past 6 weeks, I've been see-sawing between th... Read more

Yesterday was not a good day for me. I was in my “deep dark abyss” stage. Nothing my husband could do or say could get me out of it. All I wanted to do was stay in bed and not go anywhere. After about 2 hours, I finally got dressed and we went s... Read more

I must confess that in the past 3 days, I've made absolutely 100% horrible food choices. I feel so guilty about it, that I've stressed myself out and I don't feel well. Well...some of it's the crap that I ate but I totally own it. The old me wo... Read more
Ate a yucky veggie for the first time today!
Wednesday, June 04, 2008      4 comments

Yup I did it...I ate my very first sweet potato for lunch today. On the yuck-o scale it's at the very top. I started this "need to branch out on trying new veggies" kick, and this was my first one. Now since I'm in this for life, I can't get stu... Read more

Well yesterday was a really big day for me, I'm half way to my first goal. When I saw that I lost another 2 lbs and finally made it, I went into the kitchen, told my husband and cried! I was hugging him and bawling all over his shirt, the best p... Read more

I'm kickin' it old school, going back to the 80's. Let me set the scene....5th grade, Mr. Mills class. I remember him standing at his desk talking (not sure about what....I think I totally tuned him out) and I hear him say "Andy can run faster t... Read more
