A very strange day!
Saturday, July 11, 2009      4 comments

Yep, today has been a strange day. Not really sure why but it feels like I struggled all day long and it went far too fast. I know I'm missing the treadmill but trying to keep my focus and continue to get it done. I managed today with Leslie ... Read more
Decided on Plan B

Good morning! Well as my blog yesterday indicated, I'd worn out the belt on my treadmill. This treadmill was left with the house we bought last October but I think it had had little use by the previous owner. Anyway, the new belt is ordered a... Read more

Yep, that is how I'm feeling at this moment. You see, I needed just a mere 15 minutes on the treadmill tonight to get to my goal of 25k today. I did well all day long so I was tickled NOT to have to spend a lot of time. However, something is ... Read more

That is what I'm feeling this evening. Last night I just didn't sleep well. At 2 a.m. I was wide awake and couldn't get back to sleep. I laid there pondering what the heck and I wasn't feeling anxious about anything or worried any the k... Read more
Out of sync today

Well today has been anything but easy to getting it done but I won't concede. I will be forging. I think this is one of those things along this journey that has given me the most discomfort - consistency. So taking on challenges and then sett... Read more

Well final in the sense of needing to lose only 2 pounds to get to my weight goal. Then to focus on maintenance. I feel I have had my share of ups and downs over the past several months but continue to learn and grow which is all good. ... Read more

Okay, I agreed to give 25k daily (or an average of 25k daily) for the month of July. I gave it a trial on the last day of June and it went pretty well. I know what I need to do to get this done daily and finding it not as difficult as I first t... Read more

Today is the beginning of a new month and the beginning towards the end as well. This morning I weighed in at a new all-time low which puts me less than 3 lbs from GOAL! My dear friend and sister in sweat, Katmomma, thought it prudent for ... Read more

I met a young lady on another site I belong to who are avid walkers. This young lady lives not far from me so has become a regular walking partner. She's suffered from seizures and depression over the years and finally has found her way out of... Read more

Today I tried something new. The young gal I walk with wants to ride bikes so since she humored me yesterday with a six mile walk, today I agreed to ride. Understand, neither of us have done this in years so off we go. I guess I never realize... Read more
Personal Challenge met and exceeded!!!
Saturday, June 27, 2009      8 comments

Today the challenge was to outdo your previous best for steps in one day. Mine was just over 33k. So I said I'd do at least 34k and shoot for 35k. Well I got there and after some errands and running, I was close, so close to 40k I have to do ... Read more

Yep, that's how today feels. No matter what I do or say it is wrong. So I guess I need to keep all things to myself and be quiet and let it go. It is what it is afterall.... Read more

Yesterday I again struggled with a headache. I returned to work yesterday after 3 days off which was headache free. After this one, which was at least not a full blown migraine with the vomiting, I did some checking and noted that the last 3 o... Read more

Well, this is day 4 of the 5 day challenge. This started last Thursday. I did over 18k steps, and then, since I got an unexpected day off work on Friday, Katmomma thought it prudent that I shoot for 20k. I took her up on it and made it. And ... Read more

Today Katmomma challengd me to get 20k steps in because I got an unexpected day off of work (power outage). My initial goal was 18k. So I took her up on the challenge and by 3 p.m. I had met her challenge. Ironically, it came very easy and I'... Read more
