Coming back after a slump.
Friday, February 01, 2019      2 comments

There I was; eating right, getting some exercise, and losing weight. Then the slump happened. It started with the holidays, (Thanksgiving, I’m looking at you.), and the cold weather. Before I knew it, my weight was creeping up again and I didn’... Read more

I ran today. Now let me tell you what it took to get here. I started from a lying position, then, I tried standing. I walked after that, not too far or too long, but I walked. Nearly a year after I began walking; today, I ran. I’ve posted b... Read more

It took me that long to lose nearly 40 lbs, and I wouldn’t change it for the world. Along the way, I learned a few things: 1) small changes add up. Big time. I started with my diet, then added exercise. I’m still not a daily exerciser, but I g... Read more

I’ve lost 30 lbs since December 20, 2016. I am happy about this, but my goal is 10%. Just 8 more pounds. The problem? I’ve been stuck at 30 down for since November of this year. I’ve increased my exercise, gotten better about tracking, and sta... Read more
I need to do something about my sleep habits.

I've been using a Fitbit to track for about a week and I noticed something. My sleep habits are all over the place. 5 hours here, 7 hours there, and every couple of days I hit 11 hours. It's weird, I go to bed at the same time every night, bu... Read more

I just realized something. When I'm tired, I make bad decisions. All focus and determination is gone. For instance, we had a garage sale this weekend. By Saturday night, I was exhausted. By Sunday afternoon, I was done. It started to rain so ... Read more

We had a garage sale yesterday and I ended up hitting over 6,000 steps without even trying. It felt really good. If I can do this for a week, I'll up my game and shoot for 8,000 steps each day. Here's to all of you and your words of encouragem... Read more

I have gone for at least one 15 minute walk every day so far this week. It may not sound like much, but it's a far cry from where I was. Cheers!!... Read more
Garage Sale is coming up.

My Godmother and I have decided to have a garage sale. She's selling all of her "fat" clothes, and I'm selling everything my daughter's outgrown. I realized as we were setting up that her fat clothes are too small for me. Bummer, right? I co... Read more

So I have a doctors appointment this afternoon and they're going to weigh me. I hadn't planned to get on the scale this early in the week, but what can I do? I'll stay strong, no matter what the scale says, and keep doing my time on the treadmi... Read more

I'm looking forward to my first 15 minutes this morning. Coffe's in, breakfast is done, and pills are down the hatch. Just need to finish up on SparkPeople. Lol. I will get my walk in. ... Read more

I went for TWO fifteen minute walks today and I feel great. It has been such a struggle to get out the door lately, and my neighbors gave me a treadmill! I can walk without ever leaving the house. I did it today, and I will do it again tomorro... Read more
Why do I hate exercising so much?
Sunday, July 16, 2017      4 comments

I should clarify, I would walk 2 miles to a friend's house or to the store with no problem. It's the walking no where in particular that gets me. I've tried loops and pretending that I'm going somewhere, but it doesn't help. Walking is my main f... Read more
Boy do I feel old.

My little niece is having her high school graduation party today. That makes me old for sure. I was 20 when she was born, which really doesn't seem that long ago. Yet here we are, celebrating the last vestige of her childhood. I'm proud of her a... Read more
