Saturday, July 15, 2017      3 comments

This coming Monday will be the 4 week anniversary of my last "Starting Monday". I have eaten within my daily calorie allowances and walked at least 5 days a week. I have not eaten candy, cake and reduced my carb intake. Nothing extreme and I a... Read more
I like eating healthy- remember?

I like this food better than all the food that got me to where I am now, again. I like the freshness of it and the great way I don't regret what I ate.... Read more
Reality check- dang
Wednesday, March 22, 2017      4 comments

I lost some weight about 6 months ago and now I found it, again. I would ask why I do this to myself but I know. I can do it but it's hard, really hard. Food has always been my happy place, my comfort spot and my calm in the storms. I know the... Read more

What's 5 pounds?
Wednesday, August 03, 2016      1 comments

5 pounds is my huge step back, my rethink, my reevaluate, my regroup moment. Now I am working on losing these 5 pounds again. I don't think it will be possible for me to ever be healthy without tracking and monitoring everything I eat. Dang!... Read more

Job stress and old habits
Thursday, February 18, 2016      1 comments

I will admit it, I have what I consider a job and not a career. I'm in management. Some days it is an alright job, but I also sorta hate it some days. Too many folks above and below me demanding something of me at every turn. It is hard to a... Read more

Ok, I'm watching Hoarders (which I can only do after cleaning the house) and I start realizing that I am guilty of hoarding, too. I am an internal hoarder. I have surrounded my body with layers of junk. Now, I am on day 12 of organizing my prior... Read more

Ok, so I missed day 4 of blogging, but I didn't stray from my path. I had to buy Panera bagels for yesterday's team meeting. I didn't want to use most of my daily calorie allowance on a bagel, so I ordered a fruit cup. Unfortunately, they forg... Read more

Day 2 is in the books with calories to spare! I read a quote the other day that said, "The trouble is, you think you have time."- Budda This has kind of stuck with me. I realize I don't have an eternity & my days are numbered, but today is num... Read more
