So how do you decide what to keep and what to give away when you have GI issues and there is no one size that always fits. Today I went through the clothes that have been sitting in the pile ready to go to good will, pulled out a couple of thin... Read more
So here are the hundreds

I guess I am safe now saying that I am back in the 100's after many years in the twos. Each range that I am able to achieve is a bit of a yo yo as I learn what it takes for me to stay in that zone. So I honestly think of every 5 pounds as the ne... Read more

Went looking for a pair of shorts that I hadn't worn for a while, well for many whiles, so they were packed in a tub in the closet. On my way to finding them, also came across other summer/spring clothing, some of which will fit, some of which w... Read more

I don't think that I can identify one area of my life that needs moderation, as I think that my mindset itself needs moderation. What I mean by this is the underlying theme in one of my recent posts regarding making a mistake and learning from ... Read more

So the mistake that stands out in my mind, was very recent. I was upset, put into place immediate steps to change a procedure and corrective action for what had already occurred. I then put into place a check so that in the future the chances o... Read more
Whats in a ?

So lately my exercise has been clearing the driveway with the avalanche of snow that arrived in less than 24 hours. Then today one of my coworkers who I had told I was using Spark People again and had started biking at home, asked me if I had b... Read more
Expectations of Friends
Sunday, February 01, 2015      0 comments

So I just read the idea of giving a friend 10-20$ and asking them to purchase a present for you as a reward. They would wrap it and when you meet a milestone you get to open the present. I thought this was a great idea because it would be a sur... Read more

I think motivation is my biggest excuse for not exercising consistently followed thereafter by finding the right time of the day. If I exercise after eating not good for my GI system and if I wait too late in the day, then it's too close to bed... Read more

Yeah - today was the day - I added the last 5 minutes on the elliptical and met my short term goal of 30 minutes. My motivation was strictly not wanting to have to skip the fitness tracker after not having the ability to exercise on the weekend... Read more

Almost to the goal with the elliptical - 25 minutes today - was not motivated with the exception that I could envision this summer climbing mountains in Colorado and being thankful and not regretful that I had not worked out!... Read more
