Still going strong, although not so much this week. Still have tracked all food and drinks. Ate a few things that were high calorie or high fat (fried potatoes, hamburger, sherbert). Today was the first day I have exercised all week. Just di... Read more

It gets pretty hot here in southern Texas. In the 90s and 100s every day, then factor in the humidity and it just gets too hot to go outside. Have still been doing my walks around my park, but it has been difficult because of the heat. To... Read more

Day 21 - should be a habit now
Sunday, June 04, 2017      2 comments

Another sleepy day, guess that is what weekends are for! Decided to get my walk in early today, so after I did a few things around the house, I had my protein smoothie for breakfast and went for my walk. It was 94 out at about 9:30 this mo... Read more

Usually get up around 7 am. Today when my eyes opened and saw the clock it was 10:30...never sleep that late!! Felt like I could continue sleeping, but got up and had my coffee. Made breakfast of 2 scrambled eggs with onion and green pepper, 1... Read more

Friday, June 02, 2017      1 comments

Did not want to have a repeat of yesterday, meaning no motivation and wanting junk food. I believe the Good Lord answered my prayers, as I woke up this morning full of motivation and excitement for another day! Had breakfast of coffee and ... Read more
Day 18 of my new beginning
Friday, June 02, 2017      2 comments

Today is Day 18 of my fresh start of getting fit and healthy. After the first few days, I quit tracking my food, as I once again, found it too tedious. But then I realized that if I was serious in changing my eating habits, that I had to know ... Read more
05/31/17 - doing it just for me
Wednesday, May 31, 2017      4 comments

Throughout the years I have been a yo-yo dieter. So many times I have tried to lose weight, not because I wanted to, but because I was made to feel like I had to. It was very hurtful to be told by my husband (now ex) that I was too heavy and n... Read more

Good day for food choices and good day for exercising. Knew I would get myself back on track after two days "off" the healthy food wagon! ... Read more
didn't work as I planned
Monday, May 29, 2017      2 comments

Well...yesterday's "anything" day seems to have backfired on me! Today I went to my community Memorial Day potluck lunch and did not make good choices. Then for dinner I ate more pizza, and some pretzels. Still stayed within my calorie range,... Read more
My anything day
Monday, May 29, 2017      0 comments

Realizing that I am now controlling food, and food is no longer controlling me, I needed to set up an "anything day", which will be on Sundays. Some call it a cheat day. To me cheat means that it is going against the rules so to speak. Since m... Read more
exercise is interfering with my beauty sleep
Saturday, May 27, 2017      2 comments

Weighed in today. Gained .2 lbs. But I am guessing that is maybe the start of building up my muscles. Eating has been very good this week. But I am fine with it since I know I have done well this past week both with eating and exercise. ... Read more
sweatin' to the oldies...ME
Friday, May 26, 2017      4 comments

As I sit here with sweat dripping from my brow, I have to admit that yes, I am getting older! At 62, I find most exercise to be somewhat of a challenge. My body is no longer flexible and limber, and does not adapt very well to what I am asking... Read more
