  • back to the starting line....

    5/26/2016 2:16:37 PM, by HOPEFULHIPPO

    We are all moved in. A few boxes still scattered in the garage. Daughter in Running Start, almost done with her Junior year. Now we plan the Senior Pics, prom, and graduation for next year. So we now live on an island. It's taken some getting used to. We have no real TV so all of o... Read more

  • Feeling lazy

    5/26/2016 1:37:39 PM, by MLIEN913

    Today is very hot and I'm feeling lazy. To think, I was still wearing a jacket at the start of the week and now it's 90 degrees outside. Worse yet, my office space has hit 97 because of the computers. It's so hard to excerise when it's this hot and sticky. Hopefully I can get an AC unit this weekend... Read more

  • Sparks of knowledge...

    5/25/2016 4:38:38 PM, by KACEYSW

    Sometimes it's a light bulb that goes off spontaneously in your head. Other times, it's the subtle curve of a smile in your direction that makes you blush. Often, if you are not truly observant, it is subtle enough to bypass your sensibilities completely. If you are truly lucky, you see it; in other... Read more

  • Resilience

    5/25/2016 10:58:36 AM, by MLIEN913

    Today's Spark story about building resilience really resonated with me. I used to give up if the scale stopped moving or went up. With age has come the wisdom that anything worth doing takes time. I've also learned the resilience of accepting that mistakes happen. I can now face the slow progress on... Read more

  • Feeling normal

    5/24/2016 4:22:58 PM, by MISSCALFO

    I haven't posted anything for a while and I just want to say that I finally feel good. I started eating right and sticking to it for a solid month now and I've also been working out in the mornings before work. It was surprisingly easy to transition into an early morning workout and I've enjoyed eve... Read more

  • Back to lifting weights

    5/24/2016 1:08:46 PM, by MLIEN913

    Yikes! A week injured has moved the scale up again. It's back to weight lifting for me. I'd love to do more cardio but the foot injury is slowing that down. There was a chair cardio video I saw but I'm afraid that won't be enough for me. My body has also gotten too used to my daily walks with the do... Read more

  • Making it work - imperfectly

    5/24/2016 11:07:55 AM, by JENSTRESS

    One thing I've learned from all of my weight loss journeys is that perfection is never attainable. Progress is. Learning is. You would think I would have known that. I've never truly tried to be perfect. Or maybe I have. I don't know, I never really felt like that, but I know with weight... Read more

  • Pusging the barriers

    5/23/2016 11:45:39 AM, by MLIEN913

    Today I felt great when I woke up. I took the dog out for her walk. We practiced what we learned in training yesterday. She'll do most of it for a treat. When I came back in I set up breakfast and lunch for the day then took my power nap. I think I hurt my foot while napping because the pain is an... Read more

    5/23/2016 9:54:47 AM, by JENSTRESS

    Oh my! This weekend was a whirlwind! Friday when I got home, I was SO hungry. My husband was on his way with food, and I was making dinner for one of the kids. (She's 4 and didn't have a nap, so she needed dinner quicky). I was SO hungry. I grabbed chocolate covered blueberry thi... Read more

    5/22/2016 11:33:47 PM, by MLIEN913

    Today was Khaleesi's first training class. It was really helpful for me to learn how and why to do things at a certain times and to be consistent. She did really well for her first session. Since there won't be one next week we have 2 weeks to to reinforce what we learned today. 249 I can't... Read more

  • A one mile race, a half marathon and a 100 pound dumbbell-whodathunkit?

    5/21/2016 9:36:39 PM, by MSKIZ69

    On 7/31/15, I ran the GNC Liberty Mile Race-11 minutes 5 seconds--me, who once thought exercising outside would not be part of my fitness(My hair! Bugs! What if it rains? Humidity? Wild animals??)-I was surprised and pleased how accomplished I felt-and thanked God that I was able to do it! 24... Read more

    5/21/2016 8:28:10 PM, by MLIEN913

    I feel like I'm on Star Trek writing in the captain's log. Really not sure what to write today. Sciatica is flaring up again. I think it's because one of the dogs at the park knocked my over yesterday. He didn't mean it so I can't complain. At least I can still walk and that can ease some of the pai... Read more

    5/20/2016 8:42:28 PM, by SSMITH762

    I've made it once before, but didn't bother squeezing out the liquid, so the consistency was different. It's much better when ita been squeezed out. This crust was a bag of frozen cauliflower, nuked for 4 minutes, 1 egg, 1/4 cup of parmasan cheese, red pepper flakes, and my fav Italian seasoning... Read more

    5/20/2016 10:58:23 AM, by JENSTRESS

    Yesterday was a CRAZY busy day. The teen had to work after school, and didn't get home until after dinner, so I didn't need to worry about feeding her. Then the hubs had some friends to help out and pick up from the airport, so I didn't have to worry about him for dinner. So, just me an... Read more

At least my brother has made rent the past couple of months, but he hasn't helped with bills for 2 mont... Read more

  • Tired of crap attitudes.

    5/19/2016 12:18:25 PM, by JENSTRESS

    Mostly just my own crap attitude. I don't get it. I'm pretty positive most days. I'm pretty happy with my progress and the timeliness of it. And then I catch a reflection of me and think I'm fat. WHAT? I'm fine, I just don't understand that part of me that could possibly dera... Read more

I really hate being sidelined like that. I'm also very thankful and grateful that it wasn't a heart attack my hubby was having. They're... Read more

    5/18/2016 1:30:44 PM, by JENSTRESS

    I know, some people talk about two steps back, but I refuse to see anything as anything other than progress right now. I had a binge, yep. But I'm learning from all of this. It is teaching me to stop and just be. How to eat. How to be healthy. How to move forward. I'm done taking ... Read more

    5/17/2016 7:14:41 PM, by SSMITH762

    So I got a call at work today asking if I want to for to Puerto Rico for a training next week. Honestly, I'd rather not go, but I feel like it's a good opportunity. And I've never been there, so that'll be fun. But while my nephew is a teen he's not responsible enough to be left alone in the... Read more

    I'm so sleepy and I don't know why. I've been walking more, eating well, detoxing my liver and kidneys with water and a cleansing drink. Yet I feel blah. Hoping to make another soup idea that popped into my head today. Maybe that'll make me less blah.... Read more

  • Anyone else love their crockpot?

    5/16/2016 1:52:10 PM, by SSMITH762

    I maybe have a bit of a love affair with my crockpot. It made me fajitas yesterday and today it's making me rosemary crusted pot roast. I may sometimes stray to my food processor, but I think my crock pot understands it's just a fling. ;) I should probably take better care of it though. The temp... Read more

  • In the moment

    5/16/2016 1:19:36 PM, by JENSTRESS

    It is amazing to me how "in the moment" people are. All of us. Sure, we look ahead or even back, but sometimes we are so in the moment we forget so many other things. For example, I had some great NSV last week. I was very happy with my progress and so much more. And then the weekend comes.... Read more

    So I'm watching my 7 year old neice, 9 year old nephew and my friends 9 year old daughter today, so my brilliant idea was to make brownies and go roller skating.

    4/29/2016 9:14:01 AM, by SSMITH762

    Woot, so I weighed myself this morning and I'm down 7 pounds. It goes to show how giving up diet soda and fast food can help. I've only eaten out of the house once in the past two weeks whereas before it was most lunches and many dinners and I never ate breakfast. When I did eat out, it was a fam... Read more

    4/27/2016 2:25:06 PM, by JENSTRESS

    It is funny, just a few days ago I was complaining about my FIL and Step-dad and their HORRIBLE food choices that lead to major health complications, but my husband went over to my FIL's and spoke with him about making the changes that we know he needs to make, and he was completely on board. ...
