No I didn't walk the dog today in the cold, BUT I did spend about four hours at the barn. My younger daughter had a dressage lesson and yes it was COLD! Now I understand what "cold down to your bones" means. Ok, it wasn't that bad! However, ... Read more
A little tired!

It's been a good day. I "hiked" in the snow for 30 minutes with the young dog. We both needed it and I've become a little obsessed with my exercise. I'm a little sore from strength training two days ago. I often wonder if I'm the only one th... Read more

Over the two weeks that I've been off from work, I've tried to reconnect with friends that I don't see often. Lunch or just a cup of coffee, but what I've found is this little time spent together sometimes really helps them...and me. Life gets... Read more

Today is the very last game my oldest will be playing with her club soccer team. She's played club soccer since she was four and with this team for six years, so this may be a tough game for the parents as well as the players! The one "h... Read more

Thank you to those of you that commented on my blog yesterday. After reading the comments, it clicked. The only one that can change is me! I've never tried to change my husband and the kids are a work in progress, but my attitude is entirely ... Read more

Ok, today's weigh in was only 2/10ths of a pound over. I can live with that and I'm confident that I will be back in the middle of my weight range next week. I did a lot of "working out" today. I cleaned the house, did strength training, hike... Read more

I don't weigh in until Friday or Saturday, but I thought I'd check it today. It wasn't what I was expecting. I've walked everyday, but one. My oldest has me strength training and has me doing it interval style. I really thought the scale woul... Read more

When my kids were little we always made a birthday cake for Baby Jesus. It was our way of keeping the reason for the season in check. We've continued the tradition. However, last night one of the older kids put the cake in the oven and went t... Read more

I met a friend for a coffee at Starbucks. I ordered my regular, dark roast with whip cream and a chocolate drizzle. It has a mocha taste but, a lot less calories. Then I did something I never do, I ordered a piece of iced lemon pound cake BEF... Read more

Well I used the snow blower on part of the driveway, but had to scoop a lot of it. The snow was really wet and heavy. Made for a good workout of about 90 minutes. I remembered deep knee squats and holding the abs in when picking up large scoo... Read more

Motivation and enough

Yesterday, I had lunch with two friends. We ate at Panera because it is easier to make good choices. One of them had lost a lot of weight a couple of years ago, only to undergo her third back surgery. Unfortunately, her inability to exercise ... Read more

With the sad happenings in Conneticut today, it made me reflect. Yes, it's important lose weight if needed, to exercise and to eat right. However, in the "real world" we all need to learn how tobe happy with us. Losing weight shouldn't ... Read more
