28 years ago today I married the love of my life. Seriously, I had a crush on him at 12 and married him at 17 shortly after graduating! Never thought it would happen! It's not always been easy but it's always been worth the work! The good times ... Read more

Okay every article/blog I have read, every person I have spoken to, even my own advice about this says not to be disappointed in yourself when you at least get up and MOVE. Today I find myself fighting to not be let down because I wanted a 90 mi... Read more

This got put on the back burner today due to other excitement but I went to see my daughter yesterday and she almost hit her jaw on the ground when Momma got out of the car. You see, I was wearing my workout clothes instead of my normal baggy ge... Read more

This morning after I went back to lie down and get the second half of my sleep - yep I have to sleep in stages due to pain - I got a text from my daughter. She went to the hospital because she started having steady contractions and they had been... Read more
"Fat people videos"
Tuesday, August 12, 2014      11 comments

I have been noticing these "Wal-Mart" videos on Facebook and they focus on obese people who go to Wal-Mart as if we are a sport! I've also seen pictures taken of obese people on the sly in restaurants. They make me feel so many negative things. ... Read more
New nice outfits are too big!

So I ordered two outfits to wear when I go out. I ordered them 2 sizes smaller than normal so that they would fit properly and not hang on me. Well they came in yesterday and the pants were 2 sizes too large and the shirts were 1 size too large!... Read more

I'd still know I've changed due to the fact that: I am in a great mood all the time. My flexibility has increased by 50%. My stomach is starting to pull in. I don't crave fast food much anymore. My stamina increases on a daily basis. I was ... Read more

Hubby bought me an inexpensive HRM yesterday and I synced it and tried it out in the evening and it was so COOL! Now I will know when I'm working to the correct intensity instead of wondering! It did underline how out of shape I am due to being ... Read more

Both Hubby and I had two appointments each yesterday and we had to go to the DMV to get my handicapped placards renewed so it was a busy day! Everything went really well for me. Hubby's went well too, just in a different way. My family doc ... Read more
Have a great goal for 50 lbs lost!
Friday, August 08, 2014      5 comments

I have a tattoo on my arm. It is in a place that I don't like it - I feel like it makes me look like I have a "man arm". I finally got brave enough to ask my husband if I could have it removed when I hit the 50 lb mark and he said sure! It was k... Read more

Of course everyone on SP gets a major credit coup because everyone cheers me on and helps me stay positive through the thick and thin of it all! I just feel I've been leaving out something important from my thoughts and my blogs...God! I feel li... Read more
Annoying broken record time!
Wednesday, August 06, 2014      3 comments

Again only a couple hours of sleep last night. One of the comments on my blog from day before yesterday made a suggestion that I am turning into an assumption: I have so many endorphins running around in me that my body is not used to that it's ... Read more
Fears proved untrue.......
Tuesday, August 05, 2014      5 comments

I'm very happy to say that my fear of not getting up and moving today after my day of rest yesterday was proven to be a false fear. It took some butt kicking but I did get up and move! I did my one of my 2 workouts and feel better for it! One of... Read more
Functioning on a sleep deficit....
Monday, August 04, 2014      6 comments

I wake up at 2 a.m. It is my normal wake up time. I don't set an alarm. I don't have to. My body simply says: "You've been laying here long enough - GET UP! and so I haul my poor bones out of the bed. Well as I was doing my 15 minute workout thi... Read more
