Lapse, accountability and moving on
I lapsed. Because I lapsed, I will likely not meet my goal weight loss for Nov. 8th. But I am holding myself accountable and looking at why I lapsed. Mostly, it was due to stress. That is still my main trigger that sets me back. But that is... Read more

Stressed for time
So I know I recently posted on another blog about this same issue, saying I'm hopeful it will all come together. But I need to vent.

I gotta keep pushing through
I'm struggling. All the positive signs are there, my clothes fit better, I'm sleeping better, my joints are starting to feel better.
But I'm tired. This is a very busy time for my husband, he is a professor and also a musician, so he is o... Read more
Slipping a little
I didn't stay within my calorie goal this past weekend. Mostly it was stress. My mother-in-law was here and that is never a good time. I did do cardio most days, so I didn't completely fall off the wagon. Yesterday was the exception but I wa... Read more
Hanging in there
This weekend was another off weekend because I had tons of stuff to do and didn't plan time for exercise. However, I was still active. Friday my son's class went to the pumpkin patch, so there was a lot of walking going on. Saturday and Sunda... Read more
Still feeling good and maintaining my motivation. There are a lot of factors with this. First, I'm hurting less. I think I finally hit that point where the physical therapy is making a difference. Also, I'm determined to follow through on my... Read more
Sticking with it and adding AM yoga

I started my Spark Coach trial session last week and decided to extend it today. The video topic today was on SMART goals. So I went through my personal goal list and added dates, which I didn't have before. I used the 5% challenge weight los... Read more
Whew. Got two of my raised beds and one flower bed cleaned out today and ready for Fall planting. I have one other raised bed to get to, but the tomato plants there are still producing, so I'll wait on it. That one has a cover, so I will use ... Read more
Reflecting back, its been a good week
