  • Day 43: Surprising NSV!

    7/28/2021 12:59:09 PM, by BEACHCALSIX

    Had a busy day yesterday. We were gone from 8 am to around 5 pm. Hubby had some business to do in San Bernardino and needed my help. I wasn't aware of just how far away that was from our home! It was literally 2 hours one way! It wasn't too hot out but it was humid. That humidity is uck. When w... Read more

  • Day 41: Drama and my birthday is coming!

    7/26/2021 3:03:05 PM, by BEACHCALSIX

    Excuses, excuses I know. I missed several days in a row. There was some drama involved with a few friends of mine. Related to what I wrote about before. I don't like to write too much about that in case someone I know read it and became offended. I know if I found one of my friends writing about me,... Read more

  • Day 36: Gotta quit the cheat meals and a great day today

    7/21/2021 7:31:19 PM, by BEACHCALSIX

    Today was a great day! My calorie intake is actually under what is needed so I have extra calories! Lately, I've been barely meeting it and definitely going over on the weekends. It's hard, but I'm going to quit doing cheat rewards. I usually always do on the weekend. I may need to take baby steps t... Read more

  • Day 35: Fell behind?? and kids make it hard to exercise!

    7/20/2021 7:02:43 PM, by BEACHCALSIX

    Crazy how time slips away when you're busy. Nothing really exciting has been happening but I've been up to my eyeballs in tasks that need to be done. A friend of mine had a family crisis and is going through a lot so I met up with her yesterday. Our kids played together and had a blast. I hope she f... Read more

  • Day 31 and 32: Struggling to say NO

    7/17/2021 4:40:00 PM, by BEACHCALSIX

    At one month in and I have to admit I'm struggling. After 30 days on this challenge, I've barely lost 4 lbs. 3 1/2 more like. I know it's because of the weekends. When I'm with my family, I just don't know how to say no. To both myself and to them. Our trip was especially hard. It was vacation, ever... Read more

  • Day 30: A bit bummed out.

    7/15/2021 8:49:34 PM, by BEACHCALSIX

    Today is a "meh" kind of day. Just a day that I don't feel really motivated anymore. I hate these days. They come and go randomly it seems. Yesterday was so good. So motivating and inspiring! And then BAM! Today just kind of ugh... It's about 85 degrees outside and I don't want to go out and wa... Read more

  • Day 29: Goal dress

    7/14/2021 8:13:08 PM, by BEACHCALSIX

    I decided to try and motivate myself a little more by pulling out a dress I used to wear. Hubby bought if for me a few years back when I got to my goal weight. I have several other dresses from then as well. I would be so happy if I could fit in them again! I hung them up on the wall in plain ... Read more

  • Day 27 and 28: Back from the anniversary trip, sunburned and sore but ready to keep at it!

    7/13/2021 7:03:42 PM, by BEACHCALSIX

    Well, we got back from our anniversary trip yesterday afternoon. It was a great trip, the first trip we've had since...well since everything changed. The hotel was amazing!

  • Day 25 and 26: so much fun I forgot to eat! What?

    7/11/2021 6:12:16 PM, by BEACHCALSIX

    So far our trip has been amazing! We made ot to our anniversary dinner on Friday night...but barely. We've been hanging out at the hotel and by the pool all weekend.

  • Day 24: Stressed out and late!

    7/9/2021 6:34:02 PM, by BEACHCALSIX

    I'm pretty tired and stressed. Been finishing up the packing and getting the kids ready to go. We have tons of Lysol, sanitizer and masks just in case. They are all dressed up for our anniversary dinner tonight but....I don't think we will make it in time. As usual, hubby didn't get the time o... Read more

  • Day 23: Allergies just in time for our anniversary trip!

    7/8/2021 9:52:40 PM, by BEACHCALSIX

    This will be pretty short. As the title says, my allergies have kicked up today. I have a nasal spray for it that gives me temporary relief for about 20ish minutes. Then it's back and I have to wait a few hours to follow the dosage. Hopefully, it'll be gone by tomorrow! Last night we got... Read more

  • Day 22: Productive day. hubs encouraging me to exercise!

    7/7/2021 7:54:18 PM, by BEACHCALSIX

    Was a great day, very productive, and just fun. Hanging out with the kids, packing bit by bit. Getting things done. No sign of Mr. skunk anymore thank goodness. But we did spot a racoon outback. We have a very large backyard with lots of bushes and plants so it's a haven for critters to hideout. I d... Read more

  • Day 21: A visit from a furry stinky friend lol

    7/6/2021 8:00:03 PM, by BEACHCALSIX

    A good day today. On track and met all of my goals. I had to fast more during the weekend because there was a ton of holiday food around. I don't know if that balanced it out enough but we'll see .... I worked out at home today. I'm trying to ease myself back into doing tae bo again for my indo... Read more

    7/5/2021 3:50:23 PM, by BEACHCALSIX

    Hubby surprised me by staying home today. He has a day off after the 4th of July. We are planning a family walk once the sun goes down a bit. Even though, it's a nice temperature day today. Not as hot. We are also getting ready for our anniversary trip. We're leaving this Friday afternoon and ... Read more

    Not much to celebrate. Stayed the same this week. Just focusing on the new week ahead. Ready for tom to be gone and push forward. I've always had issues with tom week but I always wish to beat it. Tomorrow will be a better day! Enjoy the weekend... Read more

  • Day 16: Much better day than yesterday

    7/1/2021 8:03:31 PM, by BEACHCALSIX

    Feeling so much better today! Mentally and physically. Got a lot more things done today and feel very productive. Played with the kids and just had a great day. I did cave again and had a hot dog for lunch. I did so well in the morning with my oatmeal and tea but man, those afternoon cra... Read more

  • Day 16: Grumpy days this week...

    6/30/2021 7:40:01 PM, by BEACHCALSIX

    Not my best week. I just feel down in the dumps and irritated. It seems like everything I read about in the news is awful. I also feel like I can't lose weight. I know it's because tom and all. I guess I just miss when things were normal and didn't have to worry about new variants and getting sick j... Read more

  • Day 15: Pushing myself out the door to walk more

    6/29/2021 7:20:39 PM, by BEACHCALSIX

    Ever since I gained this weight back, it's been harder and harder to get myself into my workouts. It used to be easy, addicting even. I'd jump right into a walk or workout. Now, I have to really convince myself. Especially when I first wake up. I just want to sleep in. Well, today I pushed mys... Read more
