    I'm on a streak -getting back into a gym routine after a couple years of stress & extra eating.

    First class down. I'm doing okay keeping up with my new workout schedule so far.

    I cannot believe how quickly today has passed. I am exhausted, and I cannot say that I have met my goal of preparing for class to start on Tuesday. I had all these great new ideas from last semester, so I got it into my head that I really wanted to revamp my class. Talk about time and energy! I figu... Read more

    Going through old family things, working with my sister to inventory the house. We started this project 2 years ago, and this was one of those situations where you always think there will be more time... until there isn't. Mom's not here to ask "Where did this come from?

    I'm so proud of me and I think my Mom would be too. She was going to Senior Fit at the Nursing Home 3x /week and that's my goal: Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday.

  • Lunchtime "Blues" Turned to "Woo-Hoos"!!!

    8/20/2015 3:00:52 PM, by IMSAFEINHISARMS

    I absolutely love fruits and veggies, (especially fresh ones). And had been looking for ways to get more veggies in daily. Breakfast and dinner weren't the problem, but lunch was a challenge. I prefer to prepare a salad or occasional leftovers, but time tends to get the best of me. So usually I pack... Read more

    8/18/2015 10:19:37 PM, by SADIEMAE32

    Well, I stayed off the treadmill today and attempted a shorter workout. Unfortunately, I did not care for the specific video I found. So, I followed it up with some fun time.

  • Goal Setting - How you can help me

    8/18/2015 8:36:38 AM, by WAYSOFGRACE

    Being specific is not something I'm very good at when it comes to setting goals. If I had to try to define why, it might be because my career path has always been filled with goals that aren't all that specific. For instance, a goal at work could be finish the annual product reviews. It doe... Read more

    My Mom passed away on Tuesday. She'd been in a Nursing Home for the last 2 & 1/2 years and I had a routine of going to see her twice a week, every week, unless I was out of town.

    The only sure things in this world, right? Everyone dies sometime. This week I lost my Mom.

    8/14/2015 11:37:40 AM, by IMSAFEINHISARMS

    So, I started a new job about a month ago. At my previous job I worked on the third floor and would take the stairs a few times every day when leaving the office to run errands or get lunch.

  • Late Night Energy

    8/12/2015 9:49:54 PM, by SADIEMAE32

    I am so tired. The last few days I have become so tired around 8pm that I contemplated just going to bed right then and there. However, I figure if I go to bed that early, then I will wake up in the middle of the night and not fall back asleep. So, I stay up until my usual bedtime around 10-10:30pm ... Read more

    I've been in a slump. I admit it freely. I have been like this since I had the sinus infection. I'm chronically tired.

    I know it is a horrible habit to keep a stock of clothing that I have outgrown in belief that one day I will fit back into them again. I know that cleaning out the closet and donating clothes that are too small is therapeutic and representative of cleaning out all of one's mental struggles, etc, etc... Read more

    I love my routine exactly the way it is now. But, I know that when classes start up again in a few weeks, there is no way I will be able to keep up with it.

It can last days or weeks at a time. I like to eat by myself so no one can judge how much I am eating. I have been struggling with this for... Read more
