You are Amazing!!
Tuesday, August 06, 2019      3 comments

We tend to look in the mirror and only see the flaws. Those flaws we see, most other people cannot see them. The lines around your eyes from squinting - those are from days spent in the sunshine. Those lines around your mouth - those are from al... Read more
Living in the Moment
Monday, August 05, 2019      3 comments

Living in the present moment, is honestly, one of the hardest things I've had to work at. It's even harder than losing weight. I do like to focus on the f... Read more

So yesterday I wanted to just take the day off and take a nap before I had to leave my house. My friend Dave refused to allow it. He told me to get my bu... Read more
Intermittent Fasting
Monday, July 22, 2019      3 comments

I started doing Intermittent fasting last Wednesday. I'm working on a 10/14 day where I eat between 10 AM and 8 PM. I have found that the allowed coffee (black) and water is helping me start my morning until breakfast. The starting my meals late... Read more
I am Enough
Sunday, June 23, 2019      4 comments

I sometimes forget what the image says. I let the mirror and slow progress tell me that I am not good enough, I'm fat, I'm slow, that I am not worthy. I let not having a significant other right now tell me that if I were only smaller, I could ha... Read more
Dance
Friday, June 21, 2019      4 comments

So I have started a new thing when I work from home on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays - mini dance parties in my living room. Every hour I take a 2-5 minute break to get up and dance to the songs playing through Pandora on my TV. I'm listening ... Read more
Weird Weather
Thursday, June 20, 2019      4 comments

I love rain to fall asleep, I do not love rain when it keeps me trapped inside or when my sinuses swell and cause migraines. It feels like day 100 of the hostage situation. And we have rain in the forecast for the next 2 weeks as well. Flood war... Read more
Bad Knees
Friday, June 07, 2019      3 comments

No matter how many times I re-start my journey to a healthier me, my motivation always seems to wane after a a few weeks/months. I wish that my knees didn't hurt so much, or I could run and do more physically demanding exercises. But my knees wi... Read more
Migraines
Thursday, June 06, 2019      1 comments

Spent Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday almost locked inside due to a nasty migraine. When they hit, they are brutal and nothing helps to ease them but a cool, dark room and little to no noise. Lucky me, I work on 2 computer screens every day, so le... Read more
Monday
Monday, June 03, 2019      3 comments

I used to loathe Mondays. Only way to get new going was at least 3 cups of coffee and sit blurry eyed for several hours. Now that I think of Mondays as the start to another great week and another day to reach my goals, I look forward to them. Ch... Read more

So today I've had some setbacks. Work is dragging and my system is not running as it should. Then, while making dinner, I burned myself on a pan. Not jus... Read more

Spent an amazing afternoon with my little sister and my nephew playing Live Action Clue! It was so much fun. It was a great 5 mile walk around Downtown Cleveland today. Cannot wait to do it again next year. ... Read more
Sunshine
Thursday, May 23, 2019      5 comments

I made the mistake is wearing leggings and a three-quarter sleeve shirt today with the temperature over 80, the sun shining and the humidity high but it still felt amazing walking outside today. We've had some crazy weather the last few weeks wi... Read more
The weather sucks
Friday, March 22, 2019      3 comments

We've gone from a little rain and decent temps (40's-50's) to mid-30's and snow today. Take threw me off and I have been feeling extremely tired the last few days. Don't know if I've been pushing too hard the first half of the week or it's the w... Read more
Staying on track
Thursday, March 21, 2019      1 comments

I've been getting in plenty of cardio exercise reach day. I need to get my act together so I can add in some strength training 2-3 days each week. I have a set of exercises I can do, it's just finding the additional time to get it in. I know I n... Read more
