Year of change reflection...
Saturday, May 06, 2017      3 comments

Reflection: mostly what I've learned the past year is that I'm stronger than I thought I was, stronger than I would have given myself credit for. All due to falling at work, of course... I've learned that I can stand up to authority figures if I... Read more

Had kind of a weird ephipeny at the store today, BJ's, if everyone knows what that is. We were standing in line, ready to purchase a new vacuum for me, when in the next line over, I saw a man with his teenaged son. In their carts was five cases ... Read more

... and why I will NOT give up. This is a blog for the WEC, for the Biggest Loser Challenge that I've been a part of for a number of years now. In fact, it's been so many years now, many of the things we do, the challenges we take part in,... Read more

I've got to cut back on the sugar. It has once again crept into my daily life. Seems I work so hard to keep just a few ounces off each week, then a couple of cookies puts me into sugar overload. I know it's not good for me, but I'm having a real... Read more

I am feeling very frustrated this morning. Part of it has to do with waking up sore all over, my 'reward' for working out hard two days ago. And part of it is from housework burnout, feeling like I'm doing the same chores over and over, yet the ... Read more
Anniversary blog
Thursday, December 31, 2015      5 comments

Or what should have been an anniversary blog, except I was so busy on the 26th that I didn't get around to it. Then it seemed trivial to do it late. Then I felt like I didn't have time, even tho' I had more to add.... But, Ok, so the 26th w... Read more

Well, the big day has come, one that I have worked towards for so long. I'm down fifty pounds... and scared as heck. "Scared?", you say. "Why should she be scared? Fifty pounds gone should be something to celebrate, something to be happy about..... Read more
Exercise Blog...

My all-time fave has got to be boxing. I never thought I'd like something so 'manly' and so 'violent', but all the moving and punching has been really good for me. So good, in fact, that I can only do it once a week. It's very draining and conti... Read more

Wednesday, September 02, 2015      2 comments

One of the bigger changes that I've seen in the past year is that I'm spreading my wings a bit more. Right now I'm in the middle of one of the suggested SP challenges, how to break a plateau. I'm also monitoring my excess sugar... I've hit the 2... Read more

Those in the know, know that I do the Biggest Loser Challenge, and Wednesday is the official weigh-in day. For many of us, myself included, this is a day to be faced with uncertainty, sometimes with fear, as we look back at the previous week and... Read more

Boxing is the best exercise I've ever tried! Not too hard on my knees, and it really gets me moving! Thanks, Charles! ... Read more

Cinco de Mayo NSV
Friday, May 08, 2015      1 comments

A few days late, but that is because it took me a few days to realize that it happened. We had the kids over for tacos to celebrate Cinco de Mayo; served the usual array of foods: beef tacos, beans and rice, homemade guac thanks to my older chil... Read more
Interim Challenge
Wednesday, April 29, 2015      1 comments

Today's interim challege is to blog about my success from the past year. I'd say my biggest success is that after five decades, I'm finally getting to know myself. I'm getting stronger, becoming clearer to myself and others about my wants and ne... Read more

Got my new Spark tracker set up today. Didn't get any exercise points, as I didn't manage 10 consecutive minutes with all the walking I did. This will take some getting used to, but I feel it's a huge step in the right direction. ... Read more
