Yesterday my husband and I returned from a Caribbean cruise with our two daughters and son-in-law. We had a wonderful time! Warm, sunny days and lots of water! Absolutely perfect. The best part, of course, was being with family for a week. ... Read more

I am really struggling. I begin the day by tracking my breakfast, which is typically an ok meal, but then I fall apart. I am craving and eating so much junk! And yes, I buy the food for the house so it's my fault that there is so much junk avail... Read more

This summer I began to run. I honestly didn't think running would ever be a part of my fitness routine, as my knees are arthritic and they HURT. But as I increased my walking distance and time, I discovered that my knees were getting stronger an... Read more

Ah. I am on this consecutive day challenge... A challenge I heard about in April and began immediately: See how many consecutive days I can exercise! I set a goal for myself of 30 minutes a day. Some days are tough workouts - swimming laps or ru... Read more

I did it today. I ran a FULL 5K. In just a smidgen under 40 minutes. Non stop. No walking. Total running. And I was not nearly as tired as I was yesterday when I ran 35 minutes non-stop. I am trying not to hurt my arm TOO much while pattin... Read more

For some reason I feel like taming the sugar monster again. The 21 day sugar challenge has been a bust for me, except that I've been reading the suggestions every day and the posts people are sharing, and today's resonated with me a bit: WHAT CA... Read more

i just finished a 35 minute run. The final run of my 5K Training - And I am too tired to be triumphant! I am exhausted. I didn't even think I'd make it the full 35 minutes. Yesterday I did the 30 minute run and I was tired, but it went pret... Read more

Apparently the 21 Day Spark People Sugar Challenge is not for me - at least, not at this time. I have been continuing with my daily exercise (today is day 135 of consecutive days of exercise!) but I am really struggling with the sugar issue. I j... Read more

Ok, so I am struggling with the 21 day Tame the Sugar Monster Challenge. I am actually eating more sugar than normal, I think. Good grief. I've had a candy bar and a can of Coke each day! What the heck? I hardly ever drink soda - although candy ... Read more

It's Sunday evening. I've had a relaxing day, a rather productive day and an all-in-all nice day. I have had even more sugar than normal today. And I'm not quite done yet. Today I signed up for the The 21 Day Tame Your Sweet Tooth Ch... Read more

Well, it's Thursday and I am not doing so well on my sugar detox. The first week was superb. The second week, not so good. I am in the third week and I have consumed more added sugar this week than I normally did... I think. Lots of sugar, anywa... Read more

Monday morning. As expected, I gained weight this past week. No surprise, there! I didn't track my food - and I am paying the price. So today I am trying to get back on the wagon... it's a bit of a heave-ho to get myself back up there. So, so ha... Read more

This morning I ran more than walked! I ran for 16 minutes (two eight minute runs separated by a five minute walk) - and my total walking time was 15 minutes! I've crossed a threshold! I'm pretty happy about this! Whoot for me! ... Read more

Yesterday I was really feeling down in the dumps. But I was fortunate enough to have an appointment scheduled with my spiritual director yesterday afternoon and we discussed this whole ADHD thing and how it is currently affecting me. And that wa... Read more
