Hungry all the time...
Tuesday, February 04, 2014      12 comments

Many of us need to learn what "real hunger" is. We need to get in tune with our bodies and figure out just when we are hungry as opposed to bored, emotional or that "just looks good." I know that I'm hungry more in the winter. Maybe it'... Read more

Sunday, February 02, 2014      12 comments

I am back to my comfortable, and acceptable, weight within my range. It's almost smack in the middle of my five pound weight range. I like that! I was talking to a friend of mine that has been losing weight. I noticed that she lost some m... Read more

I've had an on going discussion, through facebook, with a man that states, " I've dedicated my career to showing fellow teachers that part of the reason that many kids "don't care" is because of the way they are treated by adults." As a t... Read more

Still sore......
Wednesday, January 29, 2014      10 comments

I had some work done on my back piece last Saturday. Usually, it's no big deal. However, it's been four days and I'm still sore. My "tattooed" friends said that I'm probably bruised. The work was on the lower right side of my back and over t... Read more
Where did this come from?

I have been happily maintaining my weight loss for going on three years. I've been happy with the muscle definition and strength that I feel. However recently a new, and rather unpleasant, "extra" has developed and I'm not real happy abo... Read more
Not a fan
Thursday, January 23, 2014      15 comments

I'm really not a fan of treadmills, stationary bikes or basically any indoor exercise. I'd much rather be outside! I'm one of those women that would rather muck a stall or do yard work than be inside. However, when it's a -12 degree tem... Read more

It is back to being below zero here. I haven't gotten used to running in the cold. Between extremely low temps and the wind, I just "can't" do it. I've been riding a stationary bike, but it doesn't seem to be keeping me in the shape that I wa... Read more

Binge eating or human nature?
Saturday, January 18, 2014      14 comments

I've noticed that if/when I eat something sweet (cookies, cake, deserts, etc.) that I go into an "overdrive" and that's what I crave for the rest of the day and into the next. It's like my body goes into a sugar high and that's all I want to ea... Read more

Yesterday was round two on my back piece tattoo. I am really sore today. Not just because of the tattooing itself, but also by the isometric workout it gives!! Today I'm taking it easy, but I'll still get my exercise in...just on a lowe... Read more

Life is Good! It's been bitterly cold and I haven't ran, but life is good! I'm back to work after winter break which means no more "doing what I want to do," but life is good! I didn't win the lottery and money is always "an issue" with... Read more
