I walked the dogs 1 mile this morning and then 2 miles in the early evening. It felt so good since I didn't exercise at all yesterday. Today was so much more productive. I did some advance cooking for the week, made healthy meals, gave both d... Read more
Saturday has become Sadder Day

For some reason by the end of the work week when I don't have plans for Saturday and my daughter does her own thing, I have been just kind of lazing around and not doing much. Today, I discovered a recipe for healthy onion rings and finished a ... Read more

I read an article here on Spark and realized that I don't spend a lot of time quietly thinking about goals and the future. For a really long time, I just felt like my life was least the good parts. Like a lot of people, I've had a lot... Read more
I thought they lied...

Every time I knew someone who ate really healthy and said it tasted good, I honestly thought they were lying. They would say they couldn't eat donuts or burgers or fries. I thought that is ridiculous, they are delicious. They would eat a hear... Read more
Does the phrase "what goes up must come down" apply here?

They always say it took time to put the weig ht on, so it'll take time to get it off. It's true but it doesn't really help much. Putting it on seemed so much more effortless. I mean seriously you can easily accomplish it with delivery and dri... Read more

Well, I knew I was going to overeat and I did. I stupidly went to a buffet. Like an alcoholic going to a bar, it didn't go well. I've had a ton of stress on my job lately plus my daughter goes to her Dad's every week on Wednesday so I'... Read more

My daughter and I are huge fans of The Biggest Loser. It is an awesome show. We talk about the trainers style and tips, the contestants and how it has changed over the years. We've changed too. On an episode of House, Dr. House is eati... Read more

I think it is funny how some of my friends and family are instantly ready to help me with my quest to eat healthy and others seem to sabotage it. I wonder why that is. Recently, I had dinner over at my brother and sister-in-law's place. ... Read more
Tired but happy

Probably due to all the exercise i've been doing lately and the darn weather I'm very tired. I'm so tired of storms. Whenever it's about to rain or snow, I am so tired and sore. I've been pushing through and maintaining my focus on healthy ea... Read more

I am pretty excited because it seemed I was stuck for a while. I kept staying the same weight for days and days. Today I weighed in and I had lost 2.7 pounds. I'm so happy to see the scale move. I really want to lose the full 2 pounds per we... Read more

I keep recalling every platitude and saying that people tell you... quitters never win... keep your chin up...and so on. I am determined to make this change despite set backs, mess ups and so on. It's funny about those sayings because I think ... Read more

I've noticed that there are days when I can totally tell that I'm losing weight and other days when it's like I haven't done a thing. I don't know if it is what I'm wearing, hormones, or what that makes the difference. I'll be glad when I get ... Read more
Sugar as a sleep aid??

I have occasional insomnia, particularly when I have a lot on my mind, my teenage daughter is out and about and so on. For some reason, it makes me hungry for sweets. After I eat sweets, I am able to fall asleep. I guess the spike in my blood... Read more
Just keep getting back up and brushing yourself off...

Well, I've had a few little mess ups in the past few days, eating things I knew weren't healthy but I must say the main difference is that I didn't go crazy and just gorge myself on the bad things and I didn't say to myself "oh well, guess I ble... Read more

Here I am starting a blog to try to discuss my journey to be healthy. I'm wondering why it is so hard to be healthy. It seems like I know how to be healthy - eat right and exercise - but I didn't do it. I was tired, hungry, it tasted too good... Read more
