Thursday, July 25, 2013      5 comments

Spark Coach suggested imagining yourself 10 years in the future and asked what that future self would say to my present self. 10 years from now I will be 56. I envision a strong healthy woman who is self-assured and isn't afraid of doing p... Read more

I think I will need to start getting up earlier in the morning to do a workout. Evenings are filled with excuses (valid and invalid). Now I just have to find a way to master the snooze button.... Read more
Chugging along

I'm tracking and finding ways to fit exercise into most days. The scale isn't reflecting that but I have found the thought of exercise less overwhelming. I find myself watching infomercials on exercise programs (P90x and Insanity). Instead of... Read more

It has been a couple of years since I've tried Sparkpeople. I'm trying to re-commit. I doubt I'll have anything earth shattering to put in a blog post but I'm going to try to be more active in the Sparkpeople Community.... Read more

Wow. It's been a while since I've written an entry. Sometimes you need something new to get you excited about the process. My husband and I joined a new gym. It's sort of wild. It's very hi-tech. That appeals to my inner geek. It's c... Read more

I walked a 5k today. I know, I know, thats really just 3 point something miles but its pretty cool for me. The weight watcher group all got together and walked. It really helps to have people to walk with. It makes the time and the miles fly... Read more
Back on the wagon (again)
Monday, May 17, 2010      0 comments

It's my birthday. It seems like as good enough time as any to re-start my efforts. I fell off the wagon during the past few weeks. I'm not sure why. My life has been going pretty well. My husband won't be doing any more cancer treatmen... Read more

Uncertainty. That has been a huge obstacle to me over the past few months. Since my husband was diagnosed with cancer, I have struggled to become comfortable with uncertainty. It seems like every time we have a smaller victory, something has ... Read more
Almost got through the week

Almost got through the whole week on track but then today that vending machine called. Actually "called" isn't correct. "Yelled" is too direct. Something more primal, subtle. More like a deep jungle vibe. It seemed like it was the best idea... Read more

This coming week will be a tough one for staying on track. My husband starts another week of chemo (Monday through Friday 9 to 4). Its an aggressive schedule but they have had great success with that protocol before. My challenge will be to c... Read more

Ok. I've never done a blog entry before. On any site, for anything. So bear with me. I'm not exactly sure why anyone would want to listen to my ramblings but here goes... I'm slightly over 40 and have struggled with my weight for as... Read more
