I have been inside all day. Time to get out. it's hot and sticky out there, but it is OUTSIDE. Sometimes ya just have to be outside. And I am not an outside kind of gal, so there is a STRONG urge at work here! I'll probably be back, dri... Read more

I find it ironic that I have spent more than 2 hours sitting on my bell-bottomed-butt, cruising around SparkPeople webpages, reading about activity, writing about activity, and being, for the most part, completely inactive. Well, SparkFr... Read more

I started doing weekly workouts in the pool and decided it was time to learn how to swim (crawl style) and breathe at the same time. I've been a backstroke-swimmer or doggie-paddle-swimmer all of my life because of this inability to front crawl... Read more

Mid-afternoon yesterday I had the feeling that my eating had been horrible, and I was bumming because of how few calories I thought I had left for the day. I knew I would go over calories because I was not going to make it wthout eating for the... Read more
Quoting others
Tuesday, November 15, 2011      0 comments

I have run across a number of quotes lately that have inspired me. These were all found at, of all places, a quilt show at our botanical gardens last Friday. “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than ... Read more
Mysterious change in behavior
Wednesday, September 21, 2011      1 comments

Each time I have been successful with behavior change and weight loss I had a certain "feeling" that I have never been able to identify. It is an ease and contentment that leads to doing what I need to do when I need to do it. The first time I... Read more
Fall is my favorite season
Friday, September 03, 2010      1 comments

I have had a two-month period of fluctuations that only recently gave way to me falling below 200 lbs. I am still wavering slightly above and below 200, but getting under 210 was a chore. A depressing, irritating, CHORE. Then the weather brok... Read more

There is absolutely nothing like the feeling of being able to pull down your pants without unzipping them! YEEHAH!!! 36 lbs gone! The gym is habit now, and I feel like a slug when I skip two days in a row (I am regularly going 5 times per we... Read more

Orlando turned out to be cold and rainy when I went down, so I didn't need any warm-weather clothes in a larger size. That was nice to not have to buy new clothes in a BIGGER size! Anyhoosie, I dropped a few lbs before I went, but gained them ... Read more
Time to add the movement
Sunday, February 07, 2010      1 comments

I've dropped 6.something lbs in the past 10 days or so, and I should be content with that, but I know it's probably mostly water weight. It's time to add some movement into the routine. Get my 10 minutes in three times a day. Walk around the ... Read more

I can only go to Subway for a sandwich for lunch so many times before I'm ready for a change... I thought I was making a good choice for lunch today, getting the Panera Bread Mediterranean Veggie sandwich, but OMG it has a lot of calories! ... Read more

Although those who love you say it's what's on the inside that counts, I truly believe that changes on the outside can help encourage the positive within you. I had been getting lazy with my outsides recently with the rationale that I did... Read more
Negative vs positive
Sunday, January 17, 2010      3 comments

All I was doing this past week was looking at the negative in everything. I wanted to join the fitness center again next to my office but they now close over the lunch hour. I wanted to work out today, but none of my work out clothes fit anymo... Read more

Thursday, January 03, 2008      1 comments

I lost 30 lbs last year in the winter/spring, then gained 15 back in the summer/fall. Isn't that backwards? However, if I keep that up, I'll hit my goal weight or something. Sheesh. Not the way to do it! Anyway, I'm bac... Read more

I have worked out only about 5 times in the past month. I feel like a slug. I KNEW this would happen. I'm not near the gym since school let out, and my motivation is lagging. Luckily, I haven't gained anything back, but I need something to "... Read more
