Ugh! The Spring Challenge is over and I gained 8 (yes, 8) lbs instead of losing it. Yes, this past week was the worst, and yes, it was a stressful week. I won't go into the why's of this week, as if you've followed my status updates this week, y... Read more

Here I am, staring down 48 with wild-eyed wonder as I don't feel anywhere near 35. I got this far without ever being married or having children of my own. My brother and sister-in-law swear that it was being present for their youngest son's birt... Read more
Well, I just spent a couple of hours (3 to be exact) in the ER after spending the night in the ER on Sunday night. On Thursday, I woke up feeling pretty normal as any other day, but before I left for work, I had my head over the toilet with a ma... Read more
Instead of trying to copy/paste/adjust/et al, I thought I'd just copy and paste the link to my latest blog instead.

Today was a fun day and one that did bring a tear or two to my eyes. Today, my cousin, her husband, her best friend, and I walked in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure 5k race. You see, Kim's son used to run the race in honor of his grandma an... Read more
And I'm nailing it!
I've completed 35 minutes on the elliptical each day this weekend after the doctor told me to rest for a couple of days. And I must say that my heel is healing quite nicely. Today was the first day I've been able to wea... Read more
Sunday morning I went to the gym with a renewed determination to prepare for the upcoming Race for the Cure 5k here in Indiana. I've done 5k's before, even without being in shape to do them. So, I wasn't concerned that I wouldn't be able to comp... Read more
Today, I mowed my lawn and I have to say it looks great! I had to go slow and stop occasionally as I have blisters on my heels from yesterday's hour long workout. I'm taking suggestions or solutions for working out with blisters.
Once I was... Read more
Today started with good intentions, but I have no idea where it fell apart. I got up this morning and went to the gym, did 65 minutes walking on the treadmill (3.0 mph at 6 incline). I now have blisters on the back of my heels as my shoes ate my... Read more
Today was a success. How? I will tell you how:
1) I stayed within my calorie range by eating healthy all day long! I didn't binge. I didn't cheat. I didn't sway from my goal.
2) I cooked. Yes, I cooked. I have lunch for tomorrow and We... Read more
I'm really going to do this tomorrow, I promise! I woke up this morning with one of those migraines that sidelines you for hours, so I had to do my math problem in the bathroom to turn off the alarm, then head back to bed where I slept until noo... Read more
Well, I had good and bad moments today. First off, I have an alarm on my phone that requires you to perform math problems in order to shut it off. While even simple math is tough at 5am, I did them...then went back to bed. So, tonight, I'm putti... Read more
I just noticed the leaders of the Teddy Bear team (love my bears!) have received their invites to the 2016 Spring Teddy Bear team as part of the 2016 Spring 5% Challenge. It is kind of bittersweet for me, as I know I'll be a Teddy Bear still, ju... Read more
Since July, I have been having a hard time with gaining weight. I was hospitalized the last week of June due to depression, and was subsequently put on a slew of new drugs. Unfortunately, some of them had a negative side-effect of weight gain. M... Read more
