A Month of Thanks
Friday, November 04, 2011      8 comments

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I'm sure the fact that my birthday sometimes falls on it doesn't have anything to do with it - not this year though. I love the reminder to give thanks, and this month I am trying to remind myself e... Read more
Today I Feel Powerful
Sunday, October 02, 2011      8 comments

I rode thirty miles today. Thirty miles. Despite the fact that it was the goal that I set for myself, I am amazed that I did it. DH did it as well which is totally awesome. He had a blast as well. I couldn't stop smiling. To some, it might... Read more
Owning Up to Bad Choices
Saturday, September 10, 2011      7 comments

One of the the traits I try to instill in my sons is owning up to their choices, good or bad. Often, they try to blame each other or sometimes just lie about these bad choices. It is something that we are still in the process of developing. ... Read more
New Obsession
Thursday, September 01, 2011      5 comments

As may have been guessed from my last post, I'm getting a bit obsessed with biking. I love it and as hot as it is this time of year, I find it more fun and cooler than running. Plus I am higher up from snakes and other critters when I'm on a b... Read more

That title got your attention, didn't it? Actually, it should probably be titled "BIKE LUST", but it didn't sound like quite the same amount of fun. Despite my lack of sparkiness the last few months, I haven't completely given up a more a... Read more
One Scary Day
Sunday, April 17, 2011      8 comments

Yesterday was supposed to be a nice fun day. My sisters and I took my mother out to breakfast. I made a healthy, even if it was a more expensive, choice for mine. Afterward we did a little bit of shopping for one of my second oldest brother's... Read more

I am making progress.
Friday, March 11, 2011      9 comments

I finally made it to Onederland this morning. I was so excited and I am going to stay here. Next weight goal is to weigh less than DH. Never in our married (or even engaged) lives have I weighed less than him, but now its just a mere 10 pound... Read more
Am I being a good influence?
Friday, January 14, 2011      7 comments

Since school restarted last week, my 5 year old son has been getting salads for lunch every day. Even at that age, they are given a choice as to what they want for lunch. Anyway, I like salads and I like that he likes salads. However, a sala... Read more
My plank story.
Sunday, January 09, 2011      7 comments

I came so close with holding the plank this time. I started the first one - I was feeling strong - I knew I could do it this time - I get to 20 seconds and I'm still doing okay - and then seconds later, over 30 additional pounds suddenly jumps ... Read more

2010 here we end
Friday, December 31, 2010      6 comments

Most of the blogs I have viewed and read today are about New Year's resolutions. I have a few of those as well, but instead of listing those I am going to list 2010 accomplishments. I have lost 40 pounds this year and kept it off. This ... Read more

Well, I'm committed to trying this and might as well post my measurements here as well as on our thread. Pleasantly surprised with my thigh measurements. I guess my walking/running has paid off there even if not such much in my hips and waist... Read more

Friday, November 26, 2010      3 comments

So when I signed in my original plan was to check in with my various teams. I changed my mind though and decided to blog first. Once I start reading most of a months worth of posts on different pages, I will never make it to blogging AGAIN. S... Read more
