In 2010, I had such hope and promise for a new me, a new start, a new forever. I accomplished much that year--lost 55 lbs, did my first 5k and 10k and finished the year with my fastest 5k ever running at a 12:48/mi pace. I was so excited. Then, ... Read more

Fourteen days...2 weeks of eating (mostly) clean. I can hardly believe it! This is for Mother's Day which meant my food options came from someone else for a portion of my day as my mom and I were at my uncle's house to celebrate our mothers. I s... Read more

On Friday (5/6), I said goodbye to a dear friend who'd passed away on Sunday. At the altar, pictures of so many good times flipped through. In every one of the pics with George and me, I was fat. Some more than others...but not once did I see on... Read more

Last night I downloaded my pics and sat down to do this and got distracted. When my mind is so many places, I find my focus not where it needs to be. The kids haven't been going to be early enough and I am not getting the sleep or quiet time I n... Read more

Wow! Ten days and going strong! I can hardly believe it. I have to admit that the last day (starting yesterday afternoon) I have been hungry come evening. The apple, egg, egg white combo does not seem to be sufficient for me to maintain being fu... Read more

Ya see that...7...7...7! That is a full week of clean eating! Well, mostly clean. I did eat out one day and some of what I got didn't turn out to be clean like I thought it would be and some just wasn't clean. Plus, last night I had cake with my... Read more

My day started off beautifully! I was well-rested and ready to go. I was excited to try the bee pollen (2 T) as a non-additive to my hot cereal. I took it from the spoon and chased it with water. WAY BETTER! So, here's the run-down on my good ea... Read more

Let me start my saying that I didn't eat meal 6 yesterday. As I climbed into bed feeling tired around 10:30 PM, I didn't fall asleep until almost 11. I was a little too energized inside still! And, no, it wasn't from working out in the evening a... Read more
