Better Late then Never!

Monday, February 29, 2016      4 comments

I had no idea I would be at my heaviest weight ever at 36 years old. I have been attempting to hit goal weight now for at least 17 years. Sigh. That's a long time of not achieving what I wanted for myself. I'm actually surprised with myself... I... Read more

Dear Mel:

Dear Mel, I forgive you! I forgive you for not being who you thought you would be. I forgive you for not always taking care of yourself. I forgive you for thinking, talking and feeling badly about yourself and your body. Others may hav... Read more

One month of effort, 2 pounds down...

Sunday, September 08, 2013      4 comments

Well, I have successfully finished 4 weeks of changing my life. I have done 4, 5 or 6 workouts per week for 4 weeks, cut out almost all pop, and unhealthy snacking. I have started running, training with a 5k app (zombies, run!)... Super fun! Tha... Read more

Soul Searching... and Mending

Friday, June 14, 2013      3 comments

Yesterday was a pretty significant day for me. Not in an exercise, food or weight success sense, but likely more important than all 3 of those put together. It was kind of a perfect storm of what I needed to hear now and what I needed to acknowl... Read more

Running??! Like, in front of people?!?

Okay, so here I go... I signed myself up for Color Me Rad 5k run in July... yikes. I am in no way shape or form a runner. A part of me loathes running and always has. I liked to sprint and do hurdles as a youngin, and I joined the cross country ... Read more

What does it take?

Saturday, January 26, 2013      4 comments

Okay.... how many times can I fall and get back up? How often can I say, "That's it... starting tomorrow or next week I'll get back at it?" Why do I keep falling down and giving up? It's really not ALL that hard and I know the health benefits, s... Read more

But WHY can't I have 40 hours a day?

One of my age old enemies has resurfaced. I had a very busy week, every aspect of my life started to fall apart, and I turned to fast food and "treats" to deal with the stress of it. I stopped tracking, thinking about what I'm eating and ex... Read more

What a difference a pound makes!

Thursday, January 19, 2012      0 comments

It's kind of ridiculous that yesterday I was feeling a bit out of control and like I was failing a bit, and then I weigh myself this morning, have lost a pound and my whole outlook changes. I'm so happy that the scale went down today, or el... Read more

I get by with a little help from my friends...

Tuesday, January 17, 2012      3 comments

Having people to share this journey with is so important. I know that now. I've tried on my own many times, with others without similar goals, with lots of people that don't stick to it and then I feel excused to eat badly as well. Since di... Read more

Bless me, sparkpeople, for I have binged...

It's been a while since my last blog confession. I spent a week in California and seemed to eat out almost every meal, and not with a healthy menu in mind. I managed to only gain 2 pounds, but with a trip to Jamaica staring me in the face in May... Read more

Okay, so gaining 2.8 lbs in 2 days when you're trying to lose is very frustrating. I know I wasn't perfect, but I wasn't terrible with my choices either. It's hard to stay motivated when you see results like that. I'm not freaking out or giving ... Read more

Here I go again on my own.... Oh, I mean, with my teams. :)

K, so I totally need to be doing a hundred things other than blogging, which is part of the problem. My schedule's ridiculous, stressful and sleep deprived, but won't be changing till my kids are older than 1 and 4. So, no excuses and no inventi... Read more

Boo Yaw!!

Sunday, April 25, 2010      2 comments

Well, Boo Yaw, Master Chief, or whatever it is the army or navy say (no disrespect intended). That's just what I felt like yelling after some swift biking this evening. I went on a brisk 15 walk with the bike to put air in the tires, then I peda... Read more

Here I go again, for good!

I know I've tried and not tried many many times. I know I missed some will power, motivation and believing in myself. I must say, wearing a bridesmaid dress and then a swimsuit on the beach in Jamaica in a year is quite motivating! I will be on ... Read more
