Slow and Steady
Saturday, March 24, 2018      4 comments

Life has been so busy, complicated and stressful lately. I have barely had time to breathe, much less to get on here to post. My exercise plan has fizzled due to working long hours and my stress level has been high. Between work and school, I... Read more

Thank God It's Saturday! It has been a long week. I get up at 4:00 every morning during the week and it is a sprint all day until I fall into bed exhausted. With my 18 year old daughter working until late at night/early morning (she works at ... Read more

you know it is hard. On Monday I started a nine week exercise program using the Insanity videos. I have had these videos for years and have done the full nine weeks a couple of times several years ago with great results. Though I am not i... Read more

Nine weeks is not that long. Although it takes dedication and determination, a nine week diet and exercise plan is completely doable. If I can push myself to stay on track for nine weeks, I will be one step closer to making this my lifestyle a... Read more
A Rough Week
Sunday, February 25, 2018      3 comments

This week was a nightmare, but really it has been a rough month. Work is chaotic, I'm behind in school work, I'm stressed and I can't seem to get motivated. I feel like a failure all of the way around. Friday I came home from work and worked ... Read more
That Was A Compliment, But
Friday, February 16, 2018      2 comments

I recently ran into a colleague that I had worked with for about a year before I transferred to another clinic. He is a great guy, but doesn't have a filter so he just says what comes into his mind. I hadn't seen him in almost a year when we r... Read more
Life

Life is messy and chaotic. No matter how much I want to schedule my life, things just don't always work the way I want them. Over the past week, my biggest hurdle has been sleep. Even when I go to bed early, I have difficulty shutting off my ... Read more
What Motivates You?
Saturday, February 10, 2018      3 comments

I had an epiphany last night. I have not been happy in my life in a long time. I haven't been motivated. Last night I realized that it is because I have not been living my life for me. It has always been about my family, mainly my husband. ... Read more
Flu

I woke up Monday morning not feeling well. By that afternoon I was running a fever, had body aches and felt like absolute crap. I spent the rest of the week laying on my couch watching television and sleeping. It was frustrating because the w... Read more
Here I Go
Sunday, January 28, 2018      4 comments

One more time... It seems like I am always starting over. Not over from the beginning this time, but getting back on track. This past week has not been good. I made attempts, but by the end of the day I had failed again. I worked out a ... Read more
Struggles
Thursday, January 25, 2018      4 comments

I promised myself that I would be real here. No sugar coating, putting a positive spin on things, or making excuses. So here goes. I have struggled so much lately. I started the month strong, but am still four pounds away from my monthly goa... Read more
Soaking Up The Sun
Saturday, January 20, 2018      2 comments

I'm still here and still plodding along. It has been a long week. I have let the stress of life get to me and haven't exercised as much as I should have this week. It hasn't been a total loss. I have packed my lunch every day and eaten with... Read more
Cravings
Friday, January 12, 2018      2 comments

Yesterday was the most difficult so far. I am not sure if it was because I had allowed myself to have a small ice cream sundae the night before, or if it was just habit. Maybe a little of both. The cravings were strongest when I was in my car... Read more
One Step At A Time
Thursday, January 11, 2018      5 comments

Life can be overwhelming at times. We are so busy and often find that we are wearing many hats. We make mistakes and sometimes we fail completely. I have learned that it is impossible to be perfect, so I can't expect perfection from myself. ... Read more
This Is The Part Where I Run Away
Tuesday, January 09, 2018      2 comments

It is that time again. The time where things start getting difficult. Where stress starts building. This is the time where I usually cave and stuff my face with food to ease the stress. It is easy to make plans when your on break. Even the ... Read more
