I used to love lazy weekends where I could sit on my butt and watch movies, play on the computer and do nothing. The plan always being that next weekend we'd go out and do something. Go figure, that attitude got me to 300 pounds. Shocking! ... Read more
The difference those 10 mins of exercise can make
Sunday, August 17, 2014      8 comments

Eight months ago I looked in the mirror, my size 22 jeans were too tight, my skin looked disgusting and I knew I had to make a change or I would see 300 pounds again. I stepped on the scale, 299.5. This was my last chance to turn things around. ... Read more
My inner child is a brat

I ran out to the store on my lunch today to pick up some fruit, while I was there my inner child started in demanding Oreo cookies. The inner child throwing a temper tantrum wasn't what surprised me, the fact that she wanted Oreos did though ... Read more
Moving forward

This morning I woke up and knew I had to decide. Move forward or stay in a holding pattern. Moving forward it is! I started my day with a wonderful bowl of watermelon with some yummy pistachios on the side. Feeling great I diced up some ... Read more
I'll miss her

Last night while the world mourned my dear ex-mother-in-law quietly passed away. I'll miss her dearly. She was a strong independent woman who taught me so much and I'm a better person for knowing her. Part of me feels so very alone. I n... Read more

Yesterday my husband and I started planning for the cooler months so we had ideas on what to do before winter and help stop us from sitting on our butts. I wanted to do things that I used to do as well as try some new things, now the hard pa... Read more
Back to hiking and overcoming a fear
Saturday, August 09, 2014      2 comments

Yesterday I headed back out to the woods and did a hike and regained that wonderful "I did that" feeling. Today I went one step further. I have always been afraid of bridges. When I was 16 I saw a car drive off a bridge and land in the lake. ... Read more
Feeling lazy?
Friday, August 08, 2014      6 comments

This week I wasn't as active as I have been. It's amazing how fast that can have an affect on your system. I'm used to 4 - 6 walks or hikes a week, this week I'll only do 3 and my sleep is off, my body is feeling the change and my attitude ha... Read more
Temptation 0 Me 1

Last night I had an opportunity to skip merrily down the wrong path of eating habits. I love ice cream, hands down my favourite guilty pleasure. Knowing that I keep portioned treats in the house that range from 2 - 4 WW points that keep me ha... Read more

Monday, August 04, 2014      7 comments

Yesterday I posted about a hike my husband and I went on. I am still vibrating from the success of it. I'm bruised, cut, blistered and sore but more important I'm thrilled, excited, motivated and can't wait to get out to another similar chall... Read more

This summer has been all about the hikes. I have one that is very challenging and hands down my favourite. It's also my measuring stick. The first year I did it I was able to hike for two hours and was happy with that. Last year I didn'... Read more

I love coming on here and reading blogs. I learn so much from people and get inspiration and advice. There's no way I could succeed without each of you. Each person has such unique view on how they are going to get to their goal. Some o... Read more

Last night I had a function I needed to attend for work, dinner and drinks. Before I went I wanted to make sure I had a plan so I went to the restaurant's website and looked over their menu. I found a great salad that would fit nicely into WW... Read more
Feeling fat
Tuesday, July 29, 2014      5 comments

Yesterday I looked in the mirror and I didn't like what I saw. For the first time in a long time I felt fat. Now, I know I am fat but yesterday was different. I twisted and turned in the mirror and didn't feel like I could see any difference ... Read more
Back to back hikes
Sunday, July 27, 2014      3 comments

Saturday we decided to go on an easy hike instead of Geo-caching. My son was in town but has a hurt foot so needed to do something light. We found a nice path that I would consider more of a walk in the woods, it was a good walk though, round... Read more
