I'm still here and plugging away. I'm just feeling very beaten down right now. It's been a challenging end of year and start to the new year. I'll explain; but first I'd like to apologize. Normally over the holidays I reach out to all my fr... Read more

Why? Because for the first time in MONTHS, I put on a pair of jeans. I was able to wear them comfortably all day. I drove and I even bent over to tie my shoes. Not only that, when I took them off, I realized that they were a size smaller th... Read more

So, at the end of week number 3, I'm down just a little over 20 pounds and feeling better than I have in years. One of the things that has helped the most is changing the way I think about meal planning and prep. Most people who have seen m... Read more

For those of you who were worried... just a reminder, I AM working with both my doctor and a nutritionist/trainer. It's not some kind of a ultra-low calorie diet just to drop weight fast. In fact, my nutritionist told me to back away from m... Read more

I've decided to make a full on 100% commitment to making a complete lifestyle change. Whatever I was doing, wasn't working. I was spending 2 - 3 hours 5 days a week in the gym while working with my trainer and nutritionist. I've also yo-yo... Read more

Here's the thing... I'm fat. Got it. I know what has happened. I know why I'm where I am. Do you? I'm guessing not. Unless you're a very close friend or part of my family then you've got no idea. I'm a very private person and don't fee... Read more

Monday I tweaked my shoulder. It was acting up so bad it hurt just to breathe. I didn't sleep well at all and was lucky I was able to drive to work. So, I took yesterday as a rest day. But today... I'm pretty proud today. Despite my in... Read more

Tuesday, August 01, 2017      6 comments

A while back I mentioned starting a bullet journal to help me out. I did. And it worked for a while. Then, all of a sudden, I realized that it had become a burden. I was racing to keep each day done. It was something I HAD to do. It w... Read more

Today is my rest day. Menu for the week is planned. Food prepped and ready to go. I just wanted to share the quote I heard today. It was during the wrap up of my meditation session and it really spoke to me... Regardless of how others... Read more
