For the puppies
Thursday, February 19, 2015      1 comments

Well, I said I wanted to get up every time I fall. Well.... tonight I literally fell. Pretty much flat on my face on the pavement. I had high hopes that moving into our house and getting our puppies (Mr. Riker and Dash Puppy) would help mot... Read more
For Me
Tuesday, August 05, 2014      4 comments

OK. It's time to get real. I'm great at setting goals. Achieving them? Not so much. I've decided to evaluate why that is. I don't think it's because my goals are unrealistic. I think it's because my focus is wrong. If I do it for my husban... Read more
Goal Update: 30 lbs by 9/4/14
Wednesday, April 02, 2014      4 comments

My husband's 30th birthday is this year, and I've been stressing over what to get him/make for him/do for him. We share finances, so buying him something just feels like deciding for him how he spends his money. I like to make things by hand, bu... Read more
More Bribery

Ok, so I'm going back to my tried and true tactic of bribery. Greg says he'll take swing dancing lessons with me if I lose 20 lbs by the end of March. And if I lose 24, he'll even buy me a dress for it :) We picked out the dress and I even mad... Read more

Hopefully this doesn't get too preachy, but I've been thinking about this concept lately. My belief is that progress is an eternal principle. I believe that we were spirits without bodies before we came to earth and we came here as part of God's... Read more
Here's to new beginnings! (Down with perfectionism!)
Tuesday, December 31, 2013      2 comments

I usually have a bad habit of waiting for a reason to start fresh. It's probably something to do with perfectionism. Being perfect sounds good, doesn't it? Or at least being able to do one thing perfectly? So I tell myself: "I'll start on Mon... Read more

Blargh. That is how I feel today. I am frustrated. I am weak. I am pretty sure I'm gaining instead of losing. No new challenges have come up. Just the same challenges as always. Greg made the most fattening "funeral potatoes" I've... Read more
More reasons to get healthy
Monday, October 07, 2013      2 comments

Monday. Most of the time I don't see it as a blessing, but today I see it as an opportunity. To start fresh. Re-commit. Repent of the weekend's unhealthy sins. I've decided I really need a plan of action when it comes to changes in schedule... Read more
Day Twelve
Friday, October 04, 2013      0 comments

It's day Twelve, but I feel like it's day minus 13. I have definitely relapsed when it comes to commitment to change and enthusiasm for becoming healthier. I could blame all sorts of things. The colder weather making me want comfort foods.... Read more
Day Five

Well, it's Day 5 believe it or not. Time flies! I will recap the last five days. Triumphs: I bought gummy vitamins because I know that we don't eat the way we should. Hopefully this will help us as we transition to healthier eating. And... Read more
