  • 1 week done for 5% challenge...

    7/11/2020 5:34:48 PM, by GRANDMABABA

    I can hardly believe a week has already passed for this summer challenge. Fortunately, I did lose weight. I also walked way over what is usual for me. Wonder if I can keep that up. I also have done a bunch of fitness classes here. Everyone has been so encouraging. Plus, I love the accountabili... Read more

  • 5% Challenge...

    7/8/2020 12:14:24 PM, by GRANDMABABA

    So far, so good! I've gotten so much encouragement and inspiration from my team and am doing well so far. I did two days of cardio boogie boot camp and one day of arms video. I've walked every day and am well above my planned step total. I do so much better when there is accountability. Hoping ... Read more

    I have been walking a mile a day and my last weigh in I had lost 10 pounds... Read more

  • 5% Summer Challenge...

    7/3/2020 1:38:49 PM, by GRANDMABABA

    I'm so excited to begin this challenge. Some people have already begun, depending on the time zones. I've done several of these, but not recently. Since I regained some weight thanks to poor weight management during a lengthy steroid treatment, a long cruise, another fun vacation and holidays dur... Read more

  • New Week...New Chance to Succeed!

    6/28/2020 5:23:05 PM, by GRANDMABABA

    As I watch the scale...do nothing!, I tend to get frustrated. 24 But, then, I remember the changes I have made. I am more active on purpose. 311 362 I eat far more cleanly again. 491 267 485 490 289 I strive to get more sleep. 102 I track exercise and food. With these improvements in m... Read more

  • Grumble, grumble

    6/26/2020 4:20:39 PM, by GRANDMABABA

    I find myself a bit grumpy these days. DH has so many zoom get togethers and meetings and he's been golfing with a bunch of friends for a month now. I do have a few zoom things I'm part of, but I so miss seeing my friends in person. And, I am afraid to fly right now so we have no plans to visit o... Read more

  • A New Week!

    6/22/2020 6:36:02 PM, by GRANDMABABA

    It was such a joy to spend part of Father's Day at a bbq at dd's home. We got to play games with grandkids and some with their parents, including Battleship, basketball and. I think, Wits and Wagers. My husband got to take a ride in our SIL's new corvette and plan a fly fishing trip with him and o... Read more

  • I just want to forget last week

    6/22/2020 10:27:53 AM, by KITTENSONG

    Last week was really hard for me. I kept gaining weight during the week and didn't really care how much I ate. I finally decided today that I was in one of depression episodes last week. It was a real low culminating yesterday on Father's Day. Father's Day has always been a very hard holiday for me... Read more

  • I can do all things...

    6/17/2020 2:02:45 PM, by GRANDMABABA

    ...through Christ who gives me strength. (Phil. 4:13) Lately I've not done well with this life verse of mine. I must remember, pray and do as He leads. I've been following my own will and it has led me away from the healthy choices my body craves. Today will be a better day and so will tomorr... Read more

  • Being on Furlough

    6/17/2020 10:05:39 AM, by KITTENSONG

    I believe I mentioned before that my company furloughed me for a few weeks. I have been working full time since I was 18 so it feels strange to be sitting at home without working. I am getting unemployment so I can pay what I need to, saving what I have leftover. I have found without something... Read more

  • To weigh or not to weigh...that is the question

    6/16/2020 2:37:41 PM, by GRANDMABABA

    Actually it's daily or not. I tend to lose weight better with daily weighing. But, I'm again trying to skip days to see what will happen. In the past I've always gained when I didn't weigh each day. So, we'll see. I didn't weigh today and feel pretty stressed about that. In the great scheme of... Read more

  • New Life for Me

    6/15/2020 9:37:01 AM, by KITTENSONG

    I just noticed when I came in to do this blog, my last one was January 2019, over a year ago! I have been journaling in other places. I have started a new life for myself, leaving my husband behind. I now have my own apartment and my cat and we are doing well. I am having problems with cookin... Read more
