Went for an hour hike. I FEEL like I'm getting thinner but, sadly, the scale did not validate this feeling. But now when I walk I don't feel like an overinflated balloon, and I can breathe better going uphill. So definitely an improvement. ... Read more

OK - so due to mystery illnesses, back and knee pain I'm starting my diet and exercise routine over again! But thanks to a nearby hiking trail, I am motivated to get outdoors and walk. Saw a Blue Grosbeak there on Monday, and those birds are r... Read more
Hooray for global warming!

One of the reasons I decided to get serious about my diet is what I call 'global warming'. I get hot no matter what the weather (and always wear layers to add or subtract as needed). I thought losing weight might help me cool off (and will le... Read more

Today my sister, Mom and I got together to celebrate Christmas with my Aunt and two cousins (a food-and-girl-talk-fest)! One piece of breakfast lasagna and one Springerle later, (with a little fruit) and I was able to say I survived the huge pl... Read more

Monday, November 19, 2012 2 comments
Today I started a new job and was able to make it through the day without relying on junk food as 'comfort' in a new/unfamiliar situation. I was also able to take a 7 minute walk at lunchtime and hope to increase to 10 minutes tomorrow (it rain... Read more
MADE IT THROUGH HALLOWEEN WITHOUT CANDY!
Thursday, November 01, 2012 3 comments
I am so happy that I made it through Halloween without candy. The Sparkpeople program makes me feel so balanced that the thought of eating sugar doesn't 'turn me on', as much as it used to. The old saying 'food doesn't taste as good as being t... Read more

I timed myself on the trail this morning. It was pretty close to my guesstimate. My goal is to reduce my time by one minute for every 10 pounds I lose. Is that doable? I was just glad I didn't have a heart attack! I'm also adding new music ... Read more

I finally started exercising regularly yesterday; time on the treadmill and 10 minutes of a fat burning aerobics video (I have a bad back, knees and ankles so I am taking it easy to start off - hopefully taking off the weight will help). I will... Read more
