Day 8
Monday, August 25, 2014      5 comments

Still here! Day 8 of the streak! Feeling a bit yucky today. Pushed through my morning walk, but feeling a bit nauseated. We had a thunderstorm move through during lunch hour so no noontime walk for me - I probably wouldn't have walked an... Read more
Day 6

It's hot and steamy here! Got up and laced up my walking shoes first thing. Took a 5.5 mile walk, hoping to beat the heat! It was quite warm as I climbed that last hill towards home! Now I am going to pack a lunch and some water and head to ... Read more

Working my way to double digits! I signed up for the fall 5% challenge! I did not reach my 5% goal for the summer challenge. I ended up on vacation the last week of the challenge and missed the final weigh in. When I returned, I weighed ... Read more

Today is day 3 of my spark login streak. Yippee! I'm on my way! This morning I got up and got on the treadmill. After one mile I started feeling a little tired. I noticed that I was slapping the treadmill with my left foot which I norma... Read more

Every year for my son's birthday we go to see the Detroit Tigers play baseball. This year the Tigers were playing in Toronto Canada. We got our passports, loaded up the suitcases in the car and hit the road. Sunday we got up bright and early ... Read more

Was off for a family vacation last week. We ventured to Canada to Toronto and to the Niagara Falls area. I must say, "There's no place like home". We had a great trip, but it was so good to return home and sleep in my own bed and get back to ... Read more

Can you hear the drill sergeant calling it out? Me too. I am marching to the cadence. One foot in front of the other. I am just not feeling it today. I don't wanna. Maybe I don't wanna because I have had a less than stellar week adh... Read more

All who wander are not lost...... Isn't that how it goes? I love to wander. I love to explore. It is one of my passions. Get me off the beaten path! However, when I set a goal and I start to wander, I am in trouble. History tells me I... Read more
First 5K this year
Friday, August 01, 2014      8 comments

My weekends have been packed and I have not taken the time to do a 5k this year. I am not a runner - I am a walker. I have a knee replacement and running is not the best activity for me (however, there is that secret I have - I really WOULD li... Read more

So tomorrow is the end of the month. I normally record my weight on the first day of the month - it was my official monthly weigh in day. The first of July I weighed 183.6. I worked hard this month. The scale has not rewarded my work lik... Read more

This past weekend I ventured to the UP (upper peninsula) of Michigan to gather with some friends from all over the state and some who live up there (who were our hosts). We had a great time catching up with each other, a cookout and bonfire - U... Read more

Last weekend I saw a 7 on my scale - as in I was in the 170's for the first time in years. Woohoo! Granted it was barely in the 170's as in 179.6 - but it was in the next lower decade of numbers on the scale. Hmmm decade isn't the word I wan... Read more
Take a chance...

Sometimes you just have to take a chance. Last night I decided instead of walking on the treadmill I was going to drive to Grand Haven and walk the waterfront and the pier. The weather forecast was calling for rain later in the evening. I... Read more
Procrastinators CAN change....
Tuesday, July 22, 2014      13 comments

I've been walking this path a while. Things I know..... this is not easy for anyone. Change, even if we embrace it, requires us to let go of old habits which is not easy. Period. Change requires action. I remember when I was little my gr... Read more

OK this will take a minute to come around to my title. Saturday I was cleaning out my closet getting rid of some too big clothes. Yippee!!! In the back hung a garment bag containing a dress I bought to wear to last year's office hol... Read more
