    Went for a short walk this month, a little slow but I was walking with a 3 1/2 year old. It was a fairly good day here, didn't get as much done as I wanted but that's ok, I have tomorrow to get it done. My goal for tomorrow is to get in at least 1.5 to 2 miles in somehow, may be at the community c... Read more

    We all need goals with our plans on getting healthy, losing weight or even when it comes to our finances. Begin with simple goals that make you feel good. Start by walking or jogging at a pace that feels comfortable. There are even apps to help you condition and get from the couch to your firs... Read more

  • Should I do this?

    9/12/2014 4:28:43 PM, by LEXIE63

    My older girl has two half marathon runs under her belt now, and is considering signing up for the 2015 Colchester half marathon next March. She knows I can't jog - it does my head in, but she has suggested I could walk it. The Fitbit is certainly encouraging me to get more steps in, but a hal... Read more

  • Angry Feelings

    9/11/2014 11:39:15 AM, by KATIBUG49

    Yesterday wasn't so good, someone did something on one of my teams that kind of irritated me & I let it bother me. The problem is, they didn't even know what they said or did that bothered me, so the only person that it affected was "ME". I thought I was getting better at handling these things & no... Read more

    Started the day out with a longer walk after walking the kids to school, e went the longer way home, I figure every little step helps. I love the cool weather we are having in the mornings.

My husband & I got up, went for a 2 mile walk, came back set out on the deck eating breakfast together just... Read more

  • A Week With the Fitbit Zip and I'm in Love!

    9/4/2014 5:35:13 PM, by LEXIE63

    I have had my Fitbit Zip for a week now, and I can already see a difference in my attitude to life. And I did not see this one coming! I have almost completely stopped sighing and griping when I have just sat down only to realise that Menopause Brain forgot something and I have to get up again... Read more

    9/4/2014 12:31:07 PM, by KATIBUG49

    We had our 6th session last night with "The Daniel Plan" about living the lifestyle.

I have learned so much & we have decided to retake each session & real... Read more

    8/27/2014 11:17:42 AM, by KATIBUG49

    I got on the scales today for the first time in a week & was a little disappointed - no loss however no gain. For myself I found I can give up the scales - it is being removed from my bathroom, it will no longer have any hold on me. I never knew they had such a strong hold on me, where I really want...

    Ok last Wednesday as part of my goals, challenges, plans whatever you want to call it was to not step on the scales again until this Wednesday! I never knew how hard that was going to be! I never knew I was that addicted to stepping on the scales! At first I was going to just put them out of sight... Read more

    8/21/2014 2:24:52 PM, by KATIBUG49

    My goal is to just get it done today, exercise, eat right & doing my sparking. I'm suppose to write my daily task & now list times that I'm going to do it. So I can't just say I'm going to exercise but what time of the day I'm going to do, like making an appointment with myself. This might be a litt... Read more

  • A Small Change that could help with calorie control

    8/19/2014 6:33:40 AM, by LEXIE63

    I know - shocking isn't it? I'm being serious for a change. :-) Thing is, I need to remember this myself, so I'm hoping that writing it down not only helps me get it into my head, but that is may also help you. Portion control is an awesome tool for weight loss. But we still hit plateau... Read more
