Week 1: 1# of weight loss. Not much, I know.....but I didn't put enough effort in. Slow start, yes, true. But taking steps in the right direction, makes for good walking. And health and wellness. And weight loss. When done at hai... Read more

Spring Challenge is underway. I've gotten a slow start, but there is still time to make some progress over Week 1. The Challenge will be easier once tax season is behind me. Ha! No excuse is a good one....all day's have their progress ba... Read more

Today is a day that symbolizes love. I certainly feel love surrounding me. I'm blessed with a husband who I call friend and who I love. We've been married for over 40 years, and though the pages of our life show some wear and tear--like ... Read more

Time to face reality, like so many. Nothing new, no magic solution, I need to focus on healthy eating, and rid myself of the bread and snacks. DAY'S POSITIVES New year of opportunity Your success story inspires me and makes me want mor... Read more
Chapter 30, Day 28 Challenge complete
Saturday, December 01, 2018      5 comments

Lost 6.5# over the Challenge, short of the 8.6# needed for a 5% weight loss goal. My loss looks good on paper, but the first 4 # were dropped Week 1, and 2.5# lost (and some re-gained) over the remaining weeks. So, I fiddle fooled around for m... Read more

Week 7 of the Challenge is a setback for me. I had a flu (not a stomach flu), and fell off my Food Program, made worse by my eating choices on Thanksgiving. I came home with a headache last night, and woke up out of a sleep, and threw up. I d... Read more

Temporarily lost my focus on health and wellness the last half of the week. Sobering weigh in: gained a half pound back instead of losing. Bah. With just 2 more weeks left to the Challenge, I need to lose 4# more to achieve a 5% weight loss. ... Read more
Chapter 30, Day 10

Yesterday was a good gym day, as I both walked the indoor track and did stretching and strength training. It was not so productive with client work; their disorganization and not mine. I decided not to let it interfere with my plans to visit m... Read more
Chapter 30, Day 8

Made a mad dash out the door to Grand's swim meet, from a late rise. Goodness, I so rarely oversleep, but it had been a long, tiring, productive week. After the swim meet, I went to breakfast with the family to celebrate. I am proud I made sm... Read more
Chapter 30, Day 7
Saturday, November 10, 2018      4 comments

Stronger commitment. Action. Weight loss. Grinding it out. The snacking monster challenges me periodically. It seems I wanted weight loss this week more than I wanted daily careless eating (can't claim perfection). Most of the week I made ... Read more

My day was jam packed, among client work, sitting grand in the afternoon, and hitting the gym early evening. I am not an evening exerciser.....came home starving, grabbed a sandwich and some animal crackers, and collapsed on the couch til morni... Read more

Day 4 was a challenging day, with client work, facing the last of the year's tax deadlines for nonprofits. I grabbed hours in the early morning before sitting the Grand over the day. I thought about health and wellness more than I acted on it.... Read more
Chapter 30, Day 3
Tuesday, November 06, 2018      4 comments

Yesterday went well enough. While I ate in calorie range, I added some extra carbs I didn't need to. Improvement needed and I will make that one of the day's goals. It's not a gym day. Fitness minutes need to happen from home today. May... Read more

Chapter 30, Day 1
Sunday, November 04, 2018      3 comments

Food choices. Keeping the faith. Yesterday was 50% smart; 50% not smart, as I closed Chapter 29. I was reminded not to let myself get too hungry, as it leaves me vulnerable regarding food choices. One thing I learned: DIL can't do half p... Read more
