Overslept and went out on a limb
Friday, January 04, 2013      2 comments

I overslept this morning, really overslept! Oversleeping for me is 6:15, this morning it was 7:00 before my internal clock told me to wake up. This put me in panic mode, I had 15 mins before I had to be on my first conference call. Thank good... Read more
That's right, I stink

For months now I've been struggling with time and trying to find a balance between work, family, downtime and working out. Guess which one lost? I really do love going to the gym, I love that feeling as the sweat starts to build up, going a b... Read more
You know you're going to fail right?

These words still ring through my mind. They were said to me when I was at a business conference and honestly they have made me not give up. The person who had said these words had just had surgery to help her lose weight. She actually spent ... Read more
What's your rock bottom?
Tuesday, December 18, 2012      2 comments

There is one event that happens in my life, one silly little trigger that lets me know I've hit rock bottom on my eating habits. Drinking pop. When I look at a bottle and shrug my shoulders with the attitude, meh, it's only a couple of hundr... Read more
Frustrated but not giving up
Monday, December 17, 2012      1 comments

I've been very frustrated with my exercise habits for the past few months and have tried a couple of solutions, none which have stuck. I tried getting back into old habits but my day has changed so much it's not realistic for me to commit to... Read more
Turns out hoping isn't enough

A few weeks ago I finally had to accept that I needed to buy a bigger size of jeans. It ticked me off but reality was that the waist on my jeans was so tight that it was giving me a headache. I did something I know I shouldn't but I did it an... Read more
When is nap time?
Monday, July 23, 2012      1 comments

Last night I worked until 1AM and at 5AM I was back at my desk. Glad yesterday was my day off, would hate to think how long I would have worked if it had of been a regular work day. Of course the big saving grace in this is that I telecommute... Read more
Darn that three week guideline and them being right!

This morning I found some available time to hop on my stair climber for a few minutes and a wonderful thing happened. Instead of focusing on my steps, or how much time has passed (read that as seconds) or how much longer before I could get of... Read more
Pent up energy

Today I got up at 5AM and went straight to work, I need to hire 30 outside sales agents and wanted to start reading through the resumes. I had forgotten what it's like to go through resumes and how much some of them just make me shake my head... Read more
It just kept staring at me
Wednesday, July 11, 2012      3 comments

It was a dark and stormy night... Ok, it was actually a bright and sunny morning but it just sounds so much more dramatic the other way. A few weeks ago the battery went dead on my scale and I used it as an excuse to not weigh myse... Read more
Me vs Excuses
Monday, July 09, 2012      2 comments

The last few days I've been evaluating the effort I've truly given to getting healthy and losing weight. I had to admit my excuse column was so much longer than my can do column. I've forced myself out of my comfort zone in order to get back ... Read more
Little from column A, little from column B
Sunday, July 08, 2012      2 comments

Yesterday started out great. I pulled the stupid weeds and rewarded myself by sitting and reading in the sun. Pat on the back for me. I went for two walks yesterday, including one walk down to the store instead of driving to pick up fre... Read more
My name is Tami and I'm fat
Saturday, July 07, 2012      6 comments

It's true, I'm fat. I didn't get this way by eating healthy. I didn't get this way by exercising every day. I got this way by sitting instead of standing. By eating cupcakes for breakfast instead of fruits and whole grains. By skipping ... Read more
Climbing the ladder of success
Tuesday, July 03, 2012      0 comments

Ok, not so much a ladder, but a stepper instead. Last week I bought myself a small stepper for my office so I could get mini sessions in throughout the day. On the first day I was a puddle of sweat after just 2 minutes. By the third day... Read more
You understand that's over 30 stories right?
Friday, June 29, 2012      1 comments

Yesterday I was determined to put 30 mins on my new stepper. I succeeded but by the end of the say my legs were mush. I was frustrated that I could be that tired over putting in only a half hour of exercise and 500 steps. Then my husband spok... Read more
