My Health Journey

**After surpassing my goal, I have now gained back EVERY bit of weight I lost and more.

I'm working on taking better care of myself again. My goal is to be as healthy as I can. It's frustrating to be back at the larger size but I know that I can do better. I've got to manage stress better and make the commitment to consistently CHOOSE health over comfort.

Trying to make lasting changes in 2014.

Thank you for stopping by at my blog on the stomach pain! You are right, we need to change the life stressors that we can change, and learn to accept the other. Have a nice Sunday.

Thanks for the kind words you left me on my blog! I was a little weak for the 5k, but my husband doesn't run as hard and I knew it would be a nice recovery run after the half. Definitely took it easy and it was nice to be out there enjoying the good weather. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read about my race!

Hey sweetie - thanks for the blog love about my Good Deed Rewarded. I like New Balance shoes too - the spot where the arch support is fits my feet really well. Sometimes Nike can do that but not often.

Hope you are having a great Saturday. So glad you stopped by.
