I want to start this blog by saying I’m NOT as much of a positive person as I tend to come across here. I tend to be a worry wart. I was also brought up with the attitude of “hope for the best but prepare the worst”. That “prepare” became “... Read more
The Denim Ultimatum!
Thursday, September 12, 2013      34 comments

At the height of my weight loss (last year this time) I was in a loose six, snug four in jeans. At that time I gave away EVERYTHING that was not a 4, 6, or small - except for a few very special items. Now I have to make an admission here, I am... Read more
Modern Observations.
Saturday, September 07, 2013      38 comments

I just found out my neighbor died last week. I didn’t even know anything had happened. Yes she had been sick for quite some time. And I know their oldest daughter has been staying there (she has a VERY lonely beagle). I found out from our ne... Read more
Renaissance Faire
Tuesday, September 03, 2013      39 comments

Well, yesterday was an extremely LONG day but really good. We got up at 4:30 am. Got ready for the Ren Faire and met friends at 6 to go to breakfast. Then an hour trip up to Wisconsin. My hubby and I were chosen for a part in the openi... Read more
WOW - what a lesson.
Sunday, September 01, 2013      50 comments

So, as I said in my last blog, I had intended to walk around in with some extra weight today for an hour. I got out the 20 pound weighted vest, a 10 pound kettlebell, an 8 pound medicine ball, 2 - 5 pound hand weights, and 2 - 3 pound hand weig... Read more
What is a bad day?

Yesterday was my first REAL vacation day in a long time. I did well on calories and had some great walks. EC and I went to check out where they are having the Zombie run in October. The trail was only 2.2 miles, so I had her drop me off on th... Read more

100 degrees = weight vest
Wednesday, August 28, 2013      25 comments

The heat index was 100 degrees yesterday and I went walking with EC. I tried the weighted vest. I started with 6 pounds. It did help with upping my exercise level. I think I need more weight though. Today, I was on my own so no vest. I... Read more
Good Monday?!?
Monday, August 26, 2013      30 comments

It was actually a good day for a Monday. I didn't get much sleep last night, and I have no idea why. But I got out to work on time. It was an ok day there. EC wasn't able to walk with me today, so I didn't get to play with my weight vest... Read more
Unplugged weekend and some progress with my issues.
Sunday, August 25, 2013      30 comments

I had an un-intentional "un-plugged" weekend. Saturday morning I was planing on doing an "exhaustion walk" at the dunes. I do these about 3 times a year. I start on the hardest trails and work my way towards the easier ones. I keep going... Read more
Looking for help/suggestions.
Friday, August 23, 2013      30 comments

Ok, scale is still heading in the wrong direction. GRRR! I’m back up 15 pounds!!! The big problem is still food. I’m overeating – I know that. I stay good all day, even on the weekends. Then hubby comes home and just encourages the fo... Read more
Nice Class tonight.
Tuesday, August 20, 2013      28 comments

There was a "foam roller" class at EC's chiropractor's office tonight. I wasn't certain I wanted to go but I actually learned how to use the foam roller properly tonight. It was really fun and it was just the two of us so lots of personal ins... Read more
Warrior's Dash!
Sunday, August 18, 2013      35 comments

I couldn't sleep yesterday morning. I was up at 4:30. I was just so excited. I've found that I really love mud runs (looking at another one for next month), but what was making me even MORE excited was running with my buddy - Evil Cherub (EC)... Read more
Getting better - maybe?
Wednesday, August 14, 2013      34 comments

Well I'm still over on calories today but only by 26. I'm going to say that's a really good day. Especially considering I've been HUGELY over for the last two weeks. How do I know? I didn't track but I know what I was eating. A conservative... Read more
Re-commitment
Monday, August 12, 2013      38 comments

Know what is harder than getting started? Re-starting!! OMG, I didn’t have anywhere near this much trouble getting on track when I first joined Spark. I have to be honest, I have not been “walking the walk” that last month or so. I’ve be... Read more
