I am going away on an extended long weekend/holiday for a family get-together to the lake (this is not a resort, we will be tenting, nothing close by, need a car). So it made me think about how am I going to plan my meals and exercise? I am alre... Read more

As said by others, I have some tapes/dvd's that have major dust on them too. I have given my favourite Richard Simmons box set with resistance band to a diabetic friend (and I don't think she is using them, I wish I would have just lent it to he... Read more

I am finally below 150 (at the weight I thought I was before I started this journey to a healthier lifestyle). Must have been that calorie burn I did Saturday morning when I donated blood (suppose to burn 650 calories according to the Mayo Clini... Read more

I donated blood this morning. I donate every two months. You know it is in you to give! I wonder how many people donate blood and are every day heros? They say you can save up to six or seven lives with one donation. These are poeple I don't eve... Read more

Message to myself: You did say that you wanted to loose the weight slowly (but this slowly?). You are now down 9.5 pounds (maybe even more, you did not have a scale to confirm your starting weight, maybe that is why you allowed yourself to ... Read more

I am still going in the right direction. Slowly. But at least it is happening even with all the temptations out there, like when you go to a resturant (most of them) they do not have proper portion sizes. So bringing a doggy bag home is your oth... Read more

I have to admit I felt a bit disappointed that I only lost 1.2 pounds. But I gave my head a quick shake and tell myself that at least it is in the right direction. I also had to remind myself that slowly is the best way to loose weight, because ... Read more
