2019 was a rough year! Divorced and trying to find myself again. I started hiking - mostly solo. I enjoyed it immensely! Some health issues cut my goal short but I've been working on them and I am ready to start again! I joined the 5% Winte... Read more

Not being prepared can, and will, hinder the journey. Day 2 wasn't so easy as I returned to work and did not prepare! I took an apple with me for break but had no lunch ready. I did choose a small cheese, sausage, and almond cup so not a horrib... Read more

I just can't find my inspiration! OK, I have not been entirely well the last few years; I am trying to correct that. Constantly tired and every day a different joint or tendon pain. I believe that much of this has been due to my thyroid hormone ... Read more

I have tried and failed more than once to get back into my good habits for a healthy lifestyle. I know this is what I want to do, but it seems so hard to get started again! This time I am going to make a good start of it because I know that I mu... Read more

I am more fortunate than many as I did not know about the cancer until after it was already removed from my body. Tests on my removed thyroid found cancer. Not an aggressive form; from what they tell me it is one that generally stays in the thyr... Read more

It seems I keep trying to get motivated and I force myself to think I am ready. I have tried starting over many times in the past year. Is it real this time? The past year has been a rough one for me. A hip injury that made it impossible to... Read more

The last year has been a long, hard road. I honestly didn't care about anything. I didn't care about me, eating right, or even living. Seems like once depression sets in it is so hard to come out of. But I am coming out of it. I still have days ... Read more

The past month or so I have been very sporatic about exercise. I need to step back & focus on the important thing here - ME! Yesterday I set myself up an exercise plan. Days to ST & days to do cardio. I'm not going to push myself to do an h... Read more
