Hey, it's 2019 and I'm still on this journey! Not even going to think of it as having to start over again! I'm going to think of it as a very windy road on the journey! That sounds better. ;-)

May of 2018 and I'm BACK! I was going really, really strong from the beginning of January until about the end of Februrary - then I hurt myself... AGAIN! UGH! I saw my chiropractor every week, at least once if not twice a week, for the next 6 weeks! Just got started back very, very slowly about 10 days ago. I started out just doing the Aerofit (a glider like a Gazelle), then a little light lifting, then on to a low aerobic.... I'm getting there. :-)

Updated 5/31/2017 - And the last 2 years haven't been a whole lot better. Stress is my workout/nutrition killer. Uff Da. But, it's now 2017 and I've lived through things that seemed would do me in, so let's turn this thing, and the stress, around! Need to MAKE the time for me. I know that. But it's not just that. I have a weakness in my hips/lower back and left shoulder that send me to the chiropractor for weeks at a time. Then it seems like I'm just starting over ALL. THE. TIME. But I keep trying. Sometimes losing... but trying. I haven't seen my chiropractor for 5 days now... so let's go!!!!


Had a couple of hard years. Ain't gonna lie about that. But 2015 is a new year with new adventures ahead. And that's how I have to look at this and meet it head on. I've spent 2 years just trying to tread water with everything that's been going on and now this year HAS to be the year I get back to ME. Can I get an AMEN?!?!

My Program:

Personal Information:
~My husband and I live on a homestead.
~Planting a HUGE garden again this year
~Have apple trees, grape vines, raspberries, asparagus, apricots, plums, rhubarb
~Prefer more natural remedies, essential oils, etc to medicines (prescription or over the counter) anyday!

Other Information:
If I could, I'd either spend my time researching my ancestors/family online all day, or sew/quilt all day (with a little reading thrown in there). But I can't. I've tried that and all it got me was a big butt! LOL I have to get up and MOVE! I'd also like to bake/cook all day, but that gets me a big butt, too! :-(

    It's nice to hear from you again. How are things going where you are?

    You're right. It does take a lot of time to get all that cardio in. I've been doing two challenges, New You Bootcamp and Wii Fit Challenge, going to the gym and working out with a trainer and trying to keep up with everything else. You know, I was trying to be like you emoticon

    Hi there! I just wanted to stop by and give you a warm welcome to the taebo mention you have lots of exercise dvds - that goes perfect with our little group- we all started with taebo and branched out from there. Stop by and say hello if you get time on our "daily post". Good luck with your 10 lb goal by March and I hope to see you on the boards.
    Take care,
