Changing an Old Habit
Thursday, September 10, 2015      0 comments

I just have to get this out into words. I've been trying to figure out for years why between 8 and 10 p.m. I graze the food sources in my home. I'm not hungry yet I eat, and eat, and eat. Some nights I make good choices and some nights I don'... Read more

I've been in a funk for over a year. I have been hanging on week after week, day by day. Oh, how I would love to revisit the days when eating right and exercising seemed second nature. Get dressed, show up and sweat it out. Plan meals, groce... Read more
There's Better Things on the Horizon (Hopefully)
Tuesday, December 17, 2013      0 comments

2013 has been a very stressful year. It started off with the threat of my husband losing his job in a career that doesn't transition well to any other career field. That threat still exists multiplied by a factor of 5. It's a frightening and ... Read more
Resolutions and the Monday's
Monday, November 18, 2013      2 comments

The Monday blahs are in full swing. My husband was all over my case this morning when I reset my alarm and went back to bed instead of enduring my morning workout. He's so sweet. "You'll regret it all day", he said. "You'll be mad at me for ... Read more
Motivation Sleeps In But I Don't

My body and brain awaken before my motivation does. Morning workouts were one key ingredient to me losing 60 pounds. Then I got out of the habit of them. I thought I deserved a break. 10 pounds later, obviously not a good idea to take a brea... Read more

Here I am, after so many months of being hit or miss with Sparkpeople. I'm spiraling down and because I've been here before and know what may be coming next... depression - I'm taking some advice from a brand new Spark friend. I'm going to blo... Read more

Spark had an article a while back that gave alternatives to using butter and eggs. I printed it out and stuck it away. For the past week or so I've been craving oatmeal raisin cookies. Today I finally pulled out the print out and used substit... Read more

Today I went to my first Saturday morning Zumba class. I've never been to this particular class because it's a town away but only a 15 minute drive. After my failure of a December when I tried to wing it on my own, no tracking, no or only ligh... Read more
Facing Reality
Friday, January 04, 2013      2 comments

I changed my weight on SP to reflect my holiday weight gain. I'm excited about watching the ticker move down as I bust through these holiday pounds. I'm sore from Zumba last night. Better than being sore from eating too many sweet... Read more
Problem: My Clothes Are TOO Tight... Commence Plan A
Thursday, January 03, 2013      1 comments

I indulged, and from the looks of it, for the entire month of December. Although that's not entirely true. But really... who didn't indulge? Since the world was going to end, didn't we all indulge a teeny tiny bit? Well, now it's back t... Read more

I don't blog much. I wish I did. I get nervous about what to say, what you might say, and the permanence of written word. So, today I just wanted to share a thought with you that I just texted to my first born son, away at college. I t... Read more

Hello, friend. It's been awhile. We have a lot of catching up to do. The past 2 weeks have been incredibly draining and surprisingly fulfilling. First off, we packed up our first born and moved him to college. He's thrilled. Dad's p... Read more
My First Run
Tuesday, July 17, 2012      4 comments

Last night I went on my first run in, well, years. I've never been a runner. I have bad feet. A few months ago a friend challenged me to a 5K in September. First I had to figure out how far 5K was in miles. Realizing that I am Super W... Read more
Just a Few Little Ones (as promised - part deux)
Thursday, May 10, 2012      3 comments

She was 20 and disheveled in every aspect of the word and in every way that a life can be removed from normalcy. I admit it. I pitied her. Such a waste of creative talent, compassion, and humor. She always had a way of looking at things and ... Read more
