  • Day 8 - Support

    8/10/2015 3:26:12 PM, by SISYPHUS_CLIMBS

    I know this is one where I desperately struggle. I was raised to be independent, not to ask for help, and definitely not to admit when I can't do something. I'm not saying it's right to be that way, but that's what I'm dealing with. Another thing that's hard to admit is that I can't cou... Read more

  • The Day After...

    8/10/2015 7:48:58 AM, by ~INDYGIRL

    If you had a bad day at work, you wouldn't quit your job or take off for a few days at a time. So why do we do that with our healthy plans? At work, if we did that- absolutely nothing would get done and business would grind to a halt because EVERYONE has bad days. The trick is to not say "tomorro... Read more

  • Moving Forward, A Minute at a Time

    8/9/2015 3:17:34 PM, by STLSUE01

    Life has become complicated. Where I once didn't take any medicines except for the occasional over-the-counter pain killer, I now take two prescription medications. My body has changed through my own neglect, and it's time for me to take it back, one minute at a time. Tomorrow, I ha... Read more

  • How You Always Have A New Chance At Life

    8/9/2015 1:35:08 PM, by ~INDYGIRL

    No matter where you are or what condition you are in, you have a chance to make healthy changes to better your situation. I say that because I used to weigh 460 pounds, was bed-ridden with disabilities and chronic pain. I now weigh 225 pounds less with no weight-loss surgery and can walk with and w... Read more

    On Wednesday night, I had a 'epiphany moment!’ I had really struggled that evening at karate. Even though the warm up was ‘only’ 25 of each of, squat thrusts, crunches, push ups, extended leg crunches, reverse cycling, scissor kicks, and my nemesis, burpees, I’m used to doing more than...

    Climbing up that mountain, day by day. Had so much fun at my gym class yesterday - Surf Set! It's an awesome program designed around a surfboard balanced on 3 bosu balls and held together with bungee cords. If that sounds like you'd fall down a lot, then you're right! I fall at least 3 tim... Read more
