A Grey Cloud Over My Head
Wednesday, July 08, 2015      1 comments

The last 6 days (and what seems to be ongoing today and I'm praying not tomorrow too) have been absolutely wretched. w - r - e - t - c - h - e - d There is no way to actually emphasize just how yucky these days have been.... And ... Read more
Present and Still Accounted For
Tuesday, June 30, 2015      2 comments

I haven't blogged in a few days BUT its ok... I'm still doing good. I'm tracking (outside of missing Sunday) regularly and walking a lot more than I used to. I do need to start introducing in a bit more rigor into my workout time, but that will ... Read more
Father's Day Blow Out
Tuesday, June 23, 2015      2 comments

In my house, mother's day and father's day have become events. I have no idea why, but its a bit warming to think the kids are 100% into it - into celebrating a parent for the day.... And boy howdy - did we! Truly, we have the full we... Read more
Adding Maureen to the Mix

Yesterday I had my first physical therapy visit for the medically managed weight loss program. Keep in mind, this is not like a Jenny Craig or Weight Watchers - this is a program of support and guidance in a weight loss journey - they will not d... Read more
Not a Shabby Tuesday
Tuesday, June 16, 2015      1 comments

I'm only a couple days in to my return and I've done about 1 day more than my previous 3 or 4 attempts. Not too bad. It just demonstrates to me that all our journeys are really a 'one day at a time' type trip - and on some days, those that may c... Read more
Hey... again.

I'm not going to prattle on about how I'm back and better than ever and attacking it all full force. Looking at my "recent" blog history - I did that already. I'm back because I need to be. I need the community and I need the accountability... Read more
Tail Between My Legs ... but not defeated
Friday, October 04, 2013      4 comments

I'm back. I know I've made this post a couple times before but a recent image has me returning to what I know I need to do - a picture that is definitely not very flattering. A picture that reminds me I am EXACTLY where I was when I started... Read more

What exactly constitutes crazy? It's almost midnight and I got out of bed and had to write that line down and read it for myself. What exactly constitutes crazy? I know from my educational background that normal and abnormal are r... Read more
Not derailed

Hellooooooo, SparkFriends! Well - I got on the scale this morning, 1 week later than I had planned but I did deal with a bit of a challenge. I am down 6 pounds from 2 weeks ago, so I'm happy with that. The challenge is that my family c... Read more
Its good to try something new now and then...
Monday, July 02, 2012      2 comments

I have always been a person that was willing to try something new (now, read this as new - not crazy). I have also been a parent that encourages my kids to try something new. I have often been heard saying "you should try something new every day... Read more
06-29-2012 Accountability Check
Friday, June 29, 2012      2 comments

Yesterday I had 2234 of 1710 calories and 3934 of 2300 sodium. Yup, I went over in both - but I will say seeing the number is a good thing and I probably would have went over if I wasn't tracking. I guarantee that in the last year+ that I h... Read more
Back with a Bang
Thursday, June 28, 2012      4 comments

OK - simple. I have to be back. I have to use this tool to help me achieve my goals. I will be figuring out how to get this stuff onto my tablet (android) so any suggestions in that department is much appreciated. I have done the foll... Read more
What have I done...
Thursday, June 28, 2012      3 comments

I am about looking at reality. I'm analytical. I don't try to lie to myself. But recently - I have been lying to myself. "It isn't that bad" - "I can start up again if I try hard enough" - "Once I get the motivation, I'll get back on track"... Read more
OK - new blog
Saturday, March 24, 2012      1 comments

I've "restarted" a few times over... but this time I swear... I'm where I was at 2 years ago when I started on Spark. I have to get Spark back as a tool and get myself back to daily blogging. While I'll still blog here, I like the flexibility wi... Read more
Seeing Myself
Saturday, January 07, 2012      7 comments

Christmas came and went with my getting some really awesome gifts and a promise from my husband that I had another gift coming - I'd be receiving it in two weeks. No amount of prodding or nagging or whining could break him. He would not tel... Read more
