It's almost time for the 2014 Fall 5% challenge to begin and I can't wait. I'm determined to do better than I have for the last couple of challenges. I've spent enough time wallowing in my own self pity and I'm ready to create more healthy habit... Read more

Gone missing
Sunday, August 24, 2014      4 comments

I have recently discovered that hitting a plateau will cause me to lose interest and send all my good intentions right out the door. Those intentions also get battered when the scale goes up instead of down and I'm really tired of gaining and lo... Read more
Preconceived Notions

My mind is reeling today because of an adult's reaction to a child. For those of you who don't know, my niece has autism and other developmental disorders. Although her biological age is 16, she typically behaves like a 6 or 7 year old. She... Read more
Checking in with my goals
Saturday, August 02, 2014      6 comments

Two weeks ago I listed some of my goals for my journey and I thought now would be a good time to see where I was at with them. (I also have the time to sit down and do it.) I'm adding a goal that has almost nothing to do with weight loss but mak... Read more

I spent the weekend away from home but managed to follow my "plan" anyway. Well, almost all of my plan. I got in some exercise every day, ate my fruits and veggies (sort of) and drank all my water. I also had a great time with my DH and DD at a ... Read more

Quick ruminations
Tuesday, June 24, 2014      6 comments

I really need to free up more of my schedule in order to blog but for now a quick one will have to do. I've really been thinking about why this journey is important to me and what motivated me to start and why I should continue. All this th... Read more
Our fitness trail
Sunday, June 15, 2014      5 comments

My niece decided she wanted to walk the fitness trail today so she came up and asked me to take her. We meandered (she doesn't like to walk fast and with focus like I do) and went off the macadamized trail several times. The first time to walk a... Read more

Going back in time
Friday, June 06, 2014      5 comments

I decided to look back over my blogs to see where I had success and the things I did to achieve it. Some of them were amusing, some full of frustration and some had really good tips and motivation. The ones that resonated with me most were the o... Read more
Exercise and nature
Thursday, June 05, 2014      6 comments

My exercise of choice is walking. When I can't do it outside, I will walk with a DVD that I have. Tonight was the first time in a long time that I was able to walk on the fitness trail that is basically in my backyard. I'd forgotten that there w... Read more
