Starting off with a bang....

Monday, July 06, 2015      4 comments

So I decided to finally sign up for the gym and start working out. I lost 40 pounds over the last two years by giving up sugar, alcohol, and gluten and had done a little cardio here and there but no weight training. But here I was thin but with ... Read more

From Olive Oil to He-Man.

Wednesday, July 01, 2015      4 comments

So I have this horrible fear of doing weight training and getting bulky muscles. I'm only 5'3" and I have forever been worried that the height problem will make me look even bigger. I've decided finally though that I really need to get over this... Read more

Took the plunge and bought some vitamins....

Monday, April 27, 2015      3 comments

So I've never steadily taken vitamins, unless you can count the Flintstones ones I used to take when I was a kid. Since 15 years of age though, I've been eating just horribly. I started eating out at restaurants multiple times a week and became ... Read more

Two weeks off Facebook....

Friday, April 24, 2015      1 comments

So I checked today and it has officially been two weeks since giving up Facebook. That means my old account has been completely deleted. I can't exactly say I've spend less time on the computer since I've given up Facebook, but I do believe the ... Read more

How do I tell my pedometer I just want to be friends....

Monday, April 20, 2015      3 comments

So I bought a fitbit a year ago but didn't give it much use. I finally decided to start using it again. I love it because it tracks my sleep and counting my steps helps me to get more motivated in my walking. It flashes what are supposed to be m... Read more

Lacing up my running shoes.....

Saturday, April 18, 2015      2 comments

I have always been horrible at keeping exercise goals. Up until recently there wasn't a single one I was able to complete. Recently though, I was finally successful and completed my Walk it Out game. This was a big deal for me because I had had ... Read more

Tips I Used to Give Up Sugar....

Friday, April 17, 2015      4 comments

So i've come to realize that while I've mentioned in numerous posts about giving up sugar, I don't believe I ever gave the tips I used to help me quitl. While I believe that chanting helped me a great deal to be successful, there were many other... Read more

One step at a time...

Thursday, April 16, 2015      5 comments

So, as was noted in past blogs, almost a year ago (late April, 2014) I made the choice to permanently give up added sugar. I gave up alcohol 2.5 years ago to help me to eventually achieve the sugar goal. My last decision to help with giving up s... Read more

Saying goodbye to Facebook....

Wednesday, April 15, 2015      4 comments

So for some reason, my life seems to be moving farther and farther from technology each day. As I've mentioned in earlier blogs my TV viewing reduced to the point where I decided to watch the few shows I watch on my computer and sold my TV. I've... Read more

In a theater near you.....

Tuesday, April 14, 2015      0 comments

So while my TV time has drastically reduced to the point where I sold my TV, there are still quite a few movies I watch. While I believe that once the four TV shows I watch are over I will be threw with watching the TV, I don't ever believe I wi... Read more

It's so much quieter now....

Monday, April 13, 2015      2 comments

So a few weeks ago I sold my TV and VCR. I used the money to buy myself a portable DVD/ CD player I could hook up to my laptop. I traded one for the other so obviously making money wasn't the main point of this sale. A year or so ago if you had ... Read more

There's nothing sweeter than the smell of success....

Friday, April 10, 2015      4 comments

So about a year and a half after I gave up alcohol it was time for me to finally give up sugar. I was a total sugar addict since I was 15. I had desert after breakfast, desert after lunch, and a large desert after dinner (a slice of pie from Bak... Read more

100 bottles of beer on the wall......

Thursday, April 09, 2015      2 comments

So I've been away from Spark People for quite some time. A great deal has changed within that time starting a month before my last blog post with giving up alcohol. Since so much has changed I will stick with one change per blog post. I knew tha... Read more

What was your name again?

Tuesday, November 06, 2012      5 comments

So because I have gone gluten free there are few alcohols that I can drink. I was reading that even distilled liquor made out of grains may not fully get the gluten out and many people still have reactions. I didn't spend the last month getting ... Read more

One day at a time....

Monday, November 05, 2012      2 comments

So I know I've written a lot in the past about potentially being gluten intolerant. In my last post I said I thought maybe my adverse reactions could have just been brought on by my constant eating out. I thought hard about it though and there h... Read more
