Success Story

Thursday, October 15, 2015      6 comments

I am determined to be a success story with my weight. I got depressed dealing with infertility and needing to realign my dreams, but I will not give up! My husband and I are on a waiting list for adoption. We expect to be on the waiting l... Read more

I finally did it

Tuesday, June 16, 2015      2 comments

I finally went to the doctor to discuss fertility. She was wonderful and is wasting no time. All I can do now is wait to hear from them about blood work and maybe a few more tests to see where we are. My husband has had 4 baby dreams in the p... Read more

I swore I never would, but...

Saturday, May 30, 2015      10 comments

I swore I would never join any weightloss program that I had to pay for, but today I did. I have racked up more fitness points in May than any other single month. I have been exercising in the morning, taking a mile walk on my lunch break, and... Read more

fitness and travel

Sunday, May 17, 2015      2 comments

Next weekend I am going to be in the car for 5-6 hours on Saturday and Monday. I plan on using my bike Saturday morning before we head out, which really shouldn't be a problem since my husband isn't known for being an early riser. I should be ... Read more

Happy Mother's Day

Sunday, May 10, 2015      2 comments

This is the first Mother's Day in a long time I felt happy. Even though I couldn't be with my mom today (I'll see her Memorial Day weekend), I was happy and peaceful. I still feel anxious wondering if I'll ever have a baby of my own and I stre... Read more

Still hopeful (I think)

Thursday, May 07, 2015      3 comments

Okay, so I have absolutely no problem getting my fitness minutes in. I almost always get 1000 minutes/month and have done so for the last 3 years. With my fitness tracker I am already at 647 minutes for the month of May - and it's only the 7th... Read more

The Energizer Bunny

Saturday, May 02, 2015      3 comments

Today I outdid myself, but I feel good! I rode my exercise bike for 70 minutes waiting for my husband to get motivated to take his shower this morning. Then I did another 20 while he was in the shower. I can't just sit and relax so I decided ... Read more

The downside to my fitness tracker

Friday, May 01, 2015      1 comments

I have had my Spark Fitness Tracker for a week now and already have a love/hate relationship with it. I'm getting used to the fact that when we take the kids for a walk at work I have to keep my feet moving. We walked for about 1/2 hour and du... Read more

This time will be different

Saturday, April 25, 2015      3 comments

How many times do we try to lose weight and fail, only to try again saying "this time will be different?" Too many in my case. I always start strong, believing this will be the time I finally reach my goals, only to hit a bump and give up. ... Read more

My husband has finally realized that he's the only one of his group of friends without kids and is ready to try. I have been ready forever it seems. This month I really thought I was pregnant and even had 4 of my co-workers ask if I was. I wa... Read more

Improvements and downfalls

Saturday, July 19, 2014      2 comments

I know I am getting stronger. A few months ago I struggled with any amount of jogging. I couldn't handle 30 seconds at 4 mph. Since then I have completed the walking 5k your way program. I have done the elliptical for 20 straight minutes - f... Read more

Pedometers and treadmills

Monday, June 23, 2014      5 comments

I was so excited to get a new pedometer so I could walk outside while training for the 5k your way I just finished. Well, the pedometer doesn't match my estimates or my car when I drove around to see what it said. My estimate and the car were ... Read more

Eggplant, the Return

Wednesday, May 14, 2014      1 comments

I tried eggplant pizza a year or two ago. The first time was ok, but the second time just depressed me. This was early in my gluten free days and I was looking for pizza and it just didn't cut it. Last week I found an eggplant for $1 and deci... Read more
