Which Healthy Habit
Monday, February 06, 2017      4 comments

So, SparkCoach assignment for today is to blog about which healthy habit is hardest to stick with. First I thought, 'oh this is easy. It's exercise.' But then I thought, 'well I do have a lot of trouble sticking to my food plan sometimes too. ... Read more
Reflecting On Exercise Efforts
Saturday, January 14, 2017      3 comments

The assignment for Sparkcoach today is to reflect on exercise efforts. The question was how frequently do you give 100% to your work out effort. The fact is it's very hard for me to work out because I've re-gained so much weight and is reall... Read more

Trying Something New
Sunday, April 03, 2016      3 comments

I did pretty well with my Lenten commitment. I worked out regularly and watched my food plan pretty well. I felt great! But I didn't lose any weight. What I'm doing isn't working. So it's time to try a new plan. A couple of years ago I bought ... Read more

Ok so I know Lent started last Wednesday but this is the first opportunity to blog. I went to my bible class last Monday night. Fr. A is really an inspiration to me because he has shared that he used to weigh nearly 300 lbs but has kept it ... Read more

I've planned menus so far every week this month. That doesn't mean I necessarily 'stuck' to what I planned. But it's a work in progress. The yoga thing isn't working so well...I truly wish the videos on the app I'm using would illustrate ... Read more

Sunday, January 10, 2016      0 comments

I did...mostly OK this week. I followed my food plan, mostly, except for a couple of slips. And I did some yoga most of the days this week. I think I perhaps missed three days, counting today. I seem to have reinjured my right knee in the pro... Read more

So far today, I'm following my plan. I just finished the first online beginner yoga class. It was five minutes. I did try to do it. It felt good to stretch. However, a problem that I frequently find with yoga videos is that some of the poses... Read more

Looking Back...Looking Forward...Living Now
Wednesday, December 30, 2015      2 comments

As I look back on this year, I feel sad and frustrated with myself. I did not accomplish much of anything in the way of weight loss. I kept 'intending to" but could not bring myself to follow through, at least for very long. We all know... Read more
Moving Forward...

I really wish like I felt I had more time to spend blogging on here. I really believe it would help me to stay connected to my goals and my desires more if I came on here daily. So, maybe that will be something to try to add to my program. ... Read more
More of the Same
Saturday, March 21, 2015      0 comments

Well, since my blog post, not much has changed. But many things have changed. Last July, a member of my husband's family fell on hard times, and needed a place to stay. Against my better judgement, and after first saying 'NO,' I was con... Read more
