I had so much fun at lunch today. I thought I wouldn't get a chance to get out of the office. So when someone volunteered to watch the phones for a little while, I seized the chance to get out into the sunshine! I went for another walk around th... Read more

A week ago I rode my bike for exactly 15 minutes. I blogged that I wanted to quit after ten. I just got off of my bike. I didn't go ten minutes. I didn't go 15. I pushed myself to do 20 minutes! I'm a sweaty mess! But a happy sweaty me... Read more
weekend recap

So I ended up mowing my yard on Saturday. Then I had an impromptu shopping trip with my 15 year old for a homecoming dress. We ended up an hour and a half away from home in a Macy's with a blue million teenage girls throwing dresses all over the... Read more

If it is to be, it's up to me. I found that quote today. That's what I need to remember -- regarding a lot of changes that I see ahead of me. Sometimes I start to shrink away from my responsibilities to myself. I get so tired of responsibil... Read more
the walk

I want to go to the high school football game tonight to watch my oldest daughter march. That doesn't leave much time (if any) for me to exercise. So what did I do? I went for a walk on my lunch break. I have found a new favorite place to ... Read more

Yay! I've lost exactly 2 pounds in the past week and a half. That's progress! No ... that's not the ONLY progress. I've moved more this week than I have the past several weeks combined. I've drank more water than a fish. I've bee... Read more

"There are two ways to spread light; to be the candle, or the mirror that reflects it." - Edith Wharton I love this quote. I had to take a minute to reflect on it. My favorite Bible verses are about how we are the salt and light of the... Read more

I'll tell you what. There's something to this making small changes idea. I'm noticing the changes in my attitude toward food, exercise, MYSELF. It feels great. No. Let me rephrase that ... IT FEELS GREAT!!! ... Read more

I had a binging episode yesterday evening. I need to figure out what triggers that behavior. And most importantly -- I need to find alternatives that will keep me from eating uncontrollably. Some things that I already know from previous ex... Read more
I hate my spark page
Tuesday, September 16, 2008      6 comments

The first thing I see when I open my spark page is that picture from a couple of years ago at my highest weight. What I hate about it is that I'm right back at that weight now. But then I scroll down and see how much I had lost. I looked h... Read more
spinning my wheels
Monday, September 15, 2008      3 comments

I mean that in a good way! I was spinning my wheels this evening on my bike! I was absolutely wiped out after just 10 minutes (how sad!) but I made myself stay in the saddle for an additional 5 for a total of 15 minutes. Go me go!! I f... Read more
coffee anyone?
Monday, September 15, 2008      2 comments

I just remembered a strange dream I had last night -- about coffee. My dreams always feature totally made up people that I feel like I've known forever. Does that mean I don't know enough people in real life? Or if I had more friends than I'd kn... Read more

I do believe things are beginning to click. I'm not perfect in any area -- but I'm seeing remarkable improvements in all areas -- of my healthy goals. The biggest sign of improvement -- I'm starting to feel better. I have noticed a little more e... Read more

This photo is me now. It was taken just this past weekend. I think it's a good starting place for me. I'm beautiful. Look at that smile. So many times I see myself through these distorted views. My self image is tainted by what I think I s... Read more
