My challenge for week 3 (a bit late but still counts) is to list at least 5 things that I like about my container (body). This has taken much thought and I've started it a couple of times but never can seem to finish it, so, here goes: 1) ... Read more
Ouch! My scale won't move! But I lost my pants!
Monday, October 03, 2011      11 comments

My scale seems to be stuck - it's hovering around the same 2-3 pounds for the past 6 weeks or so. I'm trying not to focus on it, BUT I am getting frustrated. My daughter did say to me last week "hey Mom, your pants ARE getting too big" a... Read more

It's the middle of my work week - well, actually just over the hump, with 1 more night of work after this one. I was able to make a "sit-down" dinner, mow the yard and get in an exercise DVD before having to get ready for work. I put a r... Read more

I've been on SparkPeople for 3 months now and can already tell such a big difference on how I'm feeling and how many changes are becoming second nature to me. It's not like I was in really bad shape before, but I could feel myself on the slippe... Read more
My heart goes out to Kashi on these busy days
Sunday, September 04, 2011      3 comments

Just thinking about how thankful I am for finding the Kashi All Natural frozen meals in the grocery store. I like to have something tucked away in the freezer at work in case the cafeteria has absolutely no healthy food. I like to do the salad... Read more

Today was my 5K day
Saturday, August 13, 2011      3 comments

I walked my 5K this morning and did pretty well. I ventured further from home and had more long hills than right in my neighborhood. As a result, my time was a few minutes more than I had expected, but all-in-all an OK time for me. Luck... Read more

Monday, July 18, 2011      8 comments

Got back from walking the doggie to the pet store to schedule a grooming and didn't realize that it was already 95 (hot) degrees out. We were both panting pretty hard after the 1+ mile walk and are having a short break for cool-down. Wow ... Read more
