Shake up
Monday, August 08, 2016      7 comments

Well, I have been tracking calories for a month, but I need to shake things up. Weight doesn't come off as easy as it did when I was 20! Sugar and breads are not my friends. I just realized that the "healthy" kefir I have been drinking daily has... Read more
Aha! Go to bed!!
Saturday, August 06, 2016      9 comments

Had an "aha moment" last night. I was struggling to stay up, because for gosh sakes, it's 9:30 PM on a Friday night, I can't just go to bed! So as I struggle to keep my eyes open (we get up at 5 am, 6am if we sleep in!) I get that hungries feeli... Read more
Choices
Friday, August 05, 2016      11 comments

This just blew me away. No matter what I do, I have made the choice to do it. If I eat healthy, if I look to the positive, if I eat a piece of chocolate that wasn't in my plan - it's all my choice. I have the control. I decide what my life is go... Read more
Brain Matter
Thursday, August 04, 2016      3 comments

So I LOVE pizza! I make it homemade and it's totally delicious! Yesterday, I carefully heaped the majority of my points to dinner (making a very, VERY slim lunch and breakfast) so I could enjoy three slices of awesome pizza. Mind you, if I goin... Read more
No Complaints!
Tuesday, August 02, 2016      4 comments

I am taking the 24 hour challenge to do no complaining today. It's not that I am an angry, bitter, or an unhappy person, but my goodness, it is soooo easy to get caught in the complaining trap! Why does it seem like such an effort to just look a... Read more
The wagon
Monday, August 01, 2016      5 comments

It's back on the wagon for me...but really, do we ever get off the wagon? I think that the wagon is life and it's all about how we perceive/feel about what goes on in that wagon. Sometimes we feel we've done poorly or think we've fallen off the ... Read more
Onward - again!
Sunday, July 31, 2016      5 comments

Urgh! So back from vacation where I didn't track -just ate until I was satisfied, exercised a TON, avoided sugar and desserts and.....gained back every friggen ounce I had lost in three weeks! Sooooo frustrating! I wish I had half of my husband... Read more
Inspiration!
Friday, July 22, 2016      1 comments

I recently posted this to someone else, but wanted to share with everyone else. Maybe there is a message you've been looking for to motivate and inspire your journey. Success is not a race, be patient. Success leads to success. Succes... Read more
Family
Thursday, July 21, 2016      9 comments

Where to begin....my husband and I have always bent over backwards to do for others. When it comes to family, we are always having to make arrangements, bring the food, go to them and do all the work - problem is, it's just not appreciated. My h... Read more
Frustration and Accomplishment
Wednesday, July 20, 2016      4 comments

So I sign into SparkTV, which I love because I can try lots of different exercises and not be committed to large chunks of time, and it is having tons of loading, buffering and crashing issues. Mind you, the commercials are fine.... ... Read more

Fixer-upper
Sunday, July 17, 2016      2 comments

I know! I know! Weighing yourself is just a number. The size you are doesn't determine your worthiness. Really, I know! But when the heck did I become so jiggly?? Why did I not notice 75 pounds ago, how big my butt was getting? Is that why I avo... Read more
Bloom
Friday, July 15, 2016      1 comments

Sometimes we are on the verge of blossoming into a thousand flowers. But we don't. We are waiting. We are thinking, ”Maybe tomorrow. I'm quite busy right now doing the same unsatisfying things I have been doing for years. Yep, pretty busy." ... Read more
Gold Star
Wednesday, July 13, 2016      2 comments

Today I gave myself a gold star. Why? Why not??!! I love rewards. I love the sticker on the paper, the applause at the end of the show, the compliments that follow the meal. Why shouldn't I toot my own horn? Give myself a pat on the back? I am a... Read more
Dag nab it!
Tuesday, July 12, 2016      3 comments

I had the most awesome blog I have ever written. It was nearly done. Just needed a little proof-reading. An epic battle in my head of why or why not - why exercise? Why not have that sub with all the delicious salami and mayo? Then, *poof* I lef... Read more
