Wednesday, April 22, 2020      10 comments

Early April hubby and I were supposed to take a trip-of-a-lifetime to France. The most expensive trip we've ever planned to celebrate his retirement. Needless to say that did not happen. There was no point in sulking about it. We set out to... Read more

A photo from a few years ago popped across my FB memories. I hadn't really noticed the difference in my face, but it just so happened I took a photo of my face yesterday. I have a fabulous eye doctor who finally got me into glasses that work for... Read more

To say the last few months have been a backslide would be an understatement. I'm poking around. Making no commitments. Figuring out what, exactly, I need for ME. I've reached out to a few of you, and thank you for your inputs. Yesterday was... Read more

You are all so sweet with your notes, gifts, and mail. Thank you so much. Life continues to crank along here at Life Dawn. I continue to emotionally eat. I continue to live life, challenge myself, fail, pick myself up, etc. etc. etc. T... Read more

I gave myself a good long look in the mirror and decided that enough was enough. The tools I had in my toolkit and the online support were not moving the needle. If my weight wasn't going down, I either needed to accept that or do something diff... Read more

Today hubby and I took a breather. I have been sick for so long. This weekend was the first we both agreed I was on the mend, and almost back to normal. Which meant...well it was counter-intuitive. Which meant we had a low-key day. We ... Read more

Here comes the weekend. Do you do things differently on the weekend? I specifically mean do you eat differently? Exercise differently? How is that working out for you? My weight loss has been amazing since I woke up that determined mor... Read more

When I quit smoking this most recent time I just woke up with a different mindset. It wasn't hard. I had just decided. I've now been smoke free 2 months, 6 days, 3 hours. I've saved $336 and have not smoked 537 cigarettes. When I quit this ... Read more
I Hate Weights
Saturday, July 29, 2017      16 comments

If you've been my friend for a while you know I despise weights. White hot burning heat type hatred for weights. They're boring. I have to pay attention to a video or to counting. I find a weight workout boring as dirt. And I sweat. Boring AND s... Read more

Program WITH Hubby

After much discussion and figuring things out, hubby and I have decided to do this together. Always in the past we kept our weight / exercise efforts separate. Sometimes one of us would be on the kick when the other wasn't. Or we'd agree to be b... Read more

Hello Sparkles, It's the last week of the 5% Challenge and all will wrap up well. I don't think I'll lose the 5%, but I will lose. And that's good! Work is more insane than even I expected. Plus, I'll be traveling for work very soon. I... Read more
