  • Spoke Too Soon!!

    11/21/2014 10:08:13 AM, by TRUCKERSMRS

    I was really pleased the other week when my new assistant started and it looked like my backlog was going to get hit and that some of the pressure was going to be taken away. After 7 days in the office she had an accident - at home and nothing to do with us. She blacked out and hit the side of... Read more

  • Reality..

    11/21/2014 7:41:57 AM, by MSANITAL

    well it was time to face the music, that is for sure I have not stepped on the scale the whole month of November.. I knew that is would put me in a tail spin..... I was or has been or am still struggling.. not with food so much but with everything.. the stress has gotten to me and the stress is most... Read more

  • Walking in a winter wonderland

    11/19/2014 11:53:50 AM, by FITTEREVERYDAY

    I did another 1.79 mile walk/run in the snow. Would've done more if I didn't have to work today. It's actively snowing today and it's gorgeous! I should explain that is is probably how I am one of the few people I know that has an easier time losing weight in winter than summer. I'm glued to my couc... Read more

  • Running For A Train!!

    11/18/2014 2:59:02 PM, by TRUCKERSMRS

    Today I have been out of the office at a customer meeting. 3.5hrs travel each way and a 4hr meeting. I went with my boss and he needed to get back for a parents night at one of his kids school. After we left the meeting, we found we had just missed a metro train into central station. The b... Read more

  • Update....On Me

    11/17/2014 6:06:33 PM, by KAKAY56

    Spark 's Well, I am one to say that I have been a very bad girl . My food choices are bad but my walking is helping at this point. But, I am still in my size 12 from wearing 20 plus size and I am still working on me . Just... Read more

    retty cool. Although I find the idea of loping through snow to be enough motivation. ... Read more

  • First winter run

    11/17/2014 10:28:34 AM, by FITTEREVERYDAY

    Actually went really well. Packed snow is pretty easy to deal with. I'm still not doing it on ice but I had to try out snow. I think the trails are actually more comfy on my knees with a bit of snow on them even. I've done winter walking forever and also some snow shoeing. It was just time to see if... Read more

  • Walking.

    11/16/2014 3:04:40 PM, by FITTEREVERYDAY

    I keep thinking I should vary my routine but I think it may not happen right away. I'm loving walking right now. We're on the edge of snow season (we've started having snow vs rain) and not icy yet and snow and cold is something I'm fond of walking much so that I was almost late for work Fr... Read more

  • Baking For Relaxation

    11/16/2014 8:23:30 AM, by TRUCKERSMRS

    I know I need to do more on the relaxation front. After more than a year of serious stress to the edge of burnout, I am trying to claw things back and get me self back on track. Today, I am making a real effort and baking a cake that I know Dave, my husband, really likes. I'm not a big f... Read more

  • Making Progress

    11/13/2014 2:40:46 AM, by TRUCKERSMRS

    My new assistant is in her second week and I can see that progress is being made. She has taken on a couple of projects that are long overdue and they are no longer playing on my mind. There is still a large backlog of work but I at last feel that I am making headway into it. The house is st... Read more

  • Feeling like giving up...

    11/12/2014 9:12:43 PM, by SIMPLYANGEL2U

    I just went to Vegas. The whole time I was there, I was checking out other women. Not because I'm gay (not that there would be anything wrong with that) but because I just kept realizing how far I've let myself go. When I first started wanting to lose weight I was about 160 lbs. Now I'm at 205 lbs. ... Read more

  • A Walk For The Papers

    11/8/2014 4:18:39 AM, by TRUCKERSMRS

    I am lucky to live in semi-rural village in central England. When the weather and time allows I like to walk for the daily paper. The round walk is 0.8 miles. This morning was dry, clear with a slight nip in the wind and scattered patches of blue sky. Each person I walked past, we greete... Read more

  • Not waiting for January..

    11/6/2014 11:54:11 AM, by FITTEREVERYDAY

    I need to get my rear in gear if I want to get off this plateau and I have some other goals in mind too in lieu of self care. So here are my resolutions for the remainder of 2014 -Working out M-F...negotiable for spending time with family for Thanksgiving and Christmas and sickness, non-ne... Read more

  • Slow Steps Forward

    11/5/2014 4:00:28 PM, by TRUCKERSMRS

    I need to rest and relax : A couple of weeks ago I had my first reflexology session in over 5 years. I love this. It not only helps to centre my body but forces me to lay on a couch for an hour whilst being pampered. Next session is this Saturday afternoon. Last weekend I went to London to see... Read more

  • Working out around work

    11/4/2014 2:37:43 PM, by FITTEREVERYDAY

    This is something I haven't had to do in awhile (being self-employed is different) and it does mean that doing more this month might be hard. I think I'll still commit to 10 minutes a day whether it's a work day or not. I'm thinking 30 minutes max on work days and 45 on non work days (I still have t... Read more

  • November goals

    10/31/2014 11:33:55 AM, by FITTEREVERYDAY

    Hello to November a day early! I'm excited for a new month and am leaving October with some good and bad. The good: A chance of snow (ok I don't have control over this but I feel much more motivated when there's a chill in the air than not...I am the opposite of many). Possibly a new jo... Read more
