Living with daily pain
Wednesday, May 15, 2019      4 comments

I have had a heel spur for over a year now and it's only getting worse. It limits my ability to walk now which was my go-to exercise to keep active. Getting treatment but honestly only relief for a little while. I have great shoes and if my i... Read more

Winter walks
Monday, January 19, 2015      1 comments

So ready for winter to go away. I did get a walk in this morning but have to be so careful as not to fall, since the snow that melted yesterday froze into black ice on the sidewalks. I walk when it is still dark so I like to stay on sidewalks.... Read more
Ran away from home.

This last weekend was the first time I have had a weekend away from home since Mom had her stroke a year ago. I didn't realize what a difference just 2 days away would make. I came back a better person for us both. Yes, I still get stressed o... Read more
At the end of my rope.

For about a year now I have been caring for a parent after a stroke. I can't seem to find any support groups and feel like I am about to explode. I work from home so am on caregiving 24/7. The rest of my family at least is gone during the day ... Read more
Seeing myself in reality
Thursday, October 09, 2014      0 comments

I think my reality is distorted. Some see their body as huge no matter how small they are or what others tell them. I feel for the most part, I see myself as smaller than I really am and then intermittently I catch a glimpse of myself in a pict... Read more
Staying the course

As with anything (new job, new house, eating plan) it seems like the first couple weeks you are so focused and on track. I am learning that success means staying with it. Getting exercise into my week is a challenge but I know this is key to m... Read more
I "Just Did It"
Saturday, August 30, 2014      5 comments

No excuses - that is my new motto. I am the queen of excuses - Too hot, too cold, raining, busy, etc, This morning I woke up early, got my walking clothes on and stepped outside. It was sprinkling. First thought was well I tried and retreat b... Read more

As you see from my status, I am down another pound. Rethought my food choices and I this is paying off. Now on to the next goal. I try to walk 4x a week. Sometimes I manage to fit this in, sometimes not. Walking is great and I enjoy i... Read more

Confession time--I have not been very consistent with my diet or exercise, especially food part. I peeked at the scale and if I just do a little more, I will be down 1 more pound this week, only .2 to go. I can do this. One pound will feel l... Read more
Another pound gone!
Thursday, July 10, 2014      0 comments

Celebrating a pound loss. Having motivation trouble with consistency and with staying away from sugar. Wanting is not enough, I have to dig in and "just do it". I guess I need to have someone snap a pic of me to copy and put on the freezer an... Read more

I'm coming to realize when the clouds overtake me. I feel like I'm drowning with no way out. Thank goodness those times pass. The last episode was a long one and really bad. I let the stress get to me way too much. Time to be proactive... Read more
Being consistent
Tuesday, June 24, 2014      0 comments

Why are bad habits so easy to maintain and healthy ones so difficult? I seem to fight myself all the time to eat healthy and exercise. I know I need to move more each and every day, but some days I just don't. I will not give up on this, even... Read more
There will be rainy days too.
Thursday, June 19, 2014      0 comments

I feel so good on the days I eat well and exercise you would think that would motivate me to do it daily. Not so. I am probably harder on myself than anyone else. When I catch site of myself in a full length mirror or storefront, I see how fa... Read more

I just can't seem to keep going. There are so many shoulds in my life, but I feel shut down. Depressed? Probably. So much stress and disappointment in my life right now. Having trouble finding any positives. Yesterday, had to take mom t... Read more
