I tried eating some unhealthy things early in the day to see what would happen with the scale. Even though my calories were where they should be, I discovered that for me, unhealthy equals added weight. Granted, some extra weight is no doubt d... Read more
One of those days
I'm dragging today. I feel like I'm sleepwalking through my day. I got up early to watch my grandsons with their swim teams and then my granddaughter at her swim lessons. I pushed her on the tire swing a bit and got in a bit of walking. Then... Read more
I would love to be able to jog a 5K and to walk a half-marathon. I'm far from getting to either, but am making progress.
Yesterday at the gym I managed to 'run' a mile without a break to walk. It was very slow, just over 16 minutes, but it ... Read more
Two rest days!
I hope this isn't an indication that ms is hitting a difficult stretch. I was so excited to have walked (some jogging, too) more than 30,000 steps two days in a row. However, the next day I could only walk a bit more than 13,000 and today I do... Read more
I lost a day and then found it!
I thought yesterday was Thursday and aimed to get 30,000+ steps. It was nearly the end of the day before I actually realized it was Wednesday. So, today I also aimed for the 30,000+ steps. I succeeded yesterday and am nearly there today. I m... Read more
On Sunday my husband and I were in charge of fellowship hours after both worship services. I know my habits are well in place by the way I approached this opportunity. I baked for two days without even tasting many of my creations. I purchase... Read more
Holiday Weekend Success
I was very active over the long weekend including leading a parade to pass out flags to all the people along the route. I took my husband and six-year-old granddaughter to help. She was so cute and fast. Then we walked back against the parade... Read more
I must increase intensity!
I get in lots of steps each day, some walking, some jogging. But, there are only so many hours in a day that I can do this. I sneak in lots of steps throughout the day while doing other things. But, I think after just more than 5 months of 10... Read more
Fitbit weekly report!
This report is always so encouraging to me. Even if I'm having a particularly challenging day, when i see what I did last week I find points of encouragement and that gets me wanting to surpass whatever that was. Lately, it's steps. Last week... Read more
Moving right along
Success! Out of nowhere my husband commented that my legs are really toned. I was thrilled. I have been doing some Spark exercise videos that I know are helpful. But, I believe the biggest thing is getting more than 10,000 steps each day for... Read more
Just keep moving...
This has been a challenging week. My body is struggling more than usual, perhaps because of the heat. Multiple Sclerosis doesn't like the heat. A lot of symptoms are a bit out of control right now. Thankfully, I've still gotten in my 10,000+... Read more
The green-eyed monster has no business here!
I've read messages from, spoken with and been encouraged and discouraged by a variety of people in my world. I think the worst thing we can do is compare our journeys with others. Even if we begin a weight loss journey at the same time and on ... Read more
Hot, hot, hot!
That's the weather, not me. But, I can't do anything about the weather. I can do something about me. I may never be 'hot', but I can be the healthiest me that I can be regardless of the weather. Today I walked and jogged around my house and ... Read more
"Does Mom know?"
Lately, my six-year-old granddaughter has asked me this a lot. She's wanted to know if Mom knows that I exercise, that I go to the gym and that I lift weights. It's so cute. My answer is that, yes, I'm pretty sure she knows. She knows becaus... Read more
Twice the encouragement!
Recently I wrote a couple blogs that got some interesting responses. I shared that I've agreed to many more opportunities than I could ever succeed at on my own. I received written and verbal positive and negative reactions. Interestingly, I ... Read more
