Back up a little
Friday, December 23, 2011      2 comments

Well, I'm 6/10 over my goal weight, but I know I'll get back under. I cleaned stalls and went riding for over an hour today. I'll be sore tomorrow! Great ab and lower body exercise. My arms also got a work out as I rode my daughter's dressage... Read more

It's been busy in our household. We are finally getting over the cough and fever that was going around. Today I was on a cleaning spree. I started by bathing all three dogs. That carried over to laundry and cleaning the carpets. The younges... Read more
Lucky 13
Wednesday, December 14, 2011      0 comments

I am one point from the next level and for me that is lucky 13. Yes, 13 is my lucky number...it's even tattooed on my ankle. Besides it being lucky to me, it's a reminder that this level was hard to get to! Between level 12 and 13 the po... Read more
I'm back.....down weight wise!
Friday, December 09, 2011      4 comments

I weighed in and I've lost the four pounds that crept back on over Thanksgiving. It proved to me that I need to continue watching my portions. I guess it's true, maintenance is a lifelong commitment, but it's worth doing! I also proved... Read more
Feeling better!

I am feeling a bit better today and we are off on a field trip. My students are going window shopping and will practice ordering and paying for lunch today. I should get in a lot of walking, not fast, but a steady pace. I hope this finds all ... Read more
Sick, but still spark'n.

I have a nasty cold, but I'm still trying to get my exercise in. My eating is pretty easy, since I can't taste anything. It's cold and snowy, but with this cold I'm not going outside. Instead I've walked the halls at work. I wish we had sta... Read more
The power of the scale.
Saturday, December 03, 2011      1 comments

I am guilty of giving the scale power over my moods, but I'm getting better. I need to concentrate on not slipping into old habits now that it is dark by 5:15 and the weather is cold and snowy. This is my first winter trying to maintain my wei... Read more
The scale went the wrong way!
Thursday, December 01, 2011      2 comments

I'm so disappointed in myself. I slipped up and so did my weight...went up. I slipped back into some old habits over Thanksgiving and since it gets dark so early. I literally feel like I should be a bear putting on weight for hibernation. I'... Read more
Doing well again...and then comes Thanksgiving!

I've been doing well in the weight department lately. Still in my range, but now Thanksgiving is upon us! I'm hoping to fill up on the veggies and turkey ... Read more
Oops, the scale went the wrong way.

This is the first time that I've seen the scale go the "wrong way." After a weekend of running and a chili cook off at church, I'm paying for it. (I'm hoping it's all the sodium in the chili.) I'll watch it this week and hopefully I'll be... Read more
Busy, but maintaining
Thursday, November 10, 2011      1 comments

It's been a very busy past couple of weeks. We had parent teacher conferences, not only for my four kids, but also for my class. I've increased my calories and that seems to have helped my maintenance. I've held steady at 135 lbs, give ... Read more
Feel'n good, but still losing and a puppy update
Wednesday, October 26, 2011      0 comments

This may be a situation that many would think "what's the problem," but I'm trying to figure out why I continue to lose weight. I'm 5' 8" and now weigh 134 lbs. My goal was 140 lbs and being in my mid 40's I felt that was reasonable. The... Read more
Christmas in October

We had family in last week and celebrated Christmas early. My husband was thrilled with the family gift of a big screen TV. Most of the kids liked the family weight bench. One of my daughters had a birthday/Christmas combo gift, that will last... Read more
Fun weekend, but feeling it today.
Monday, October 17, 2011      1 comments

Had a great weekend! Son's football game, daughter's soccer game, Zombie Walk for a homeless shelter, dancing, and a fun horse show. I ate decent, but not the best choices and boy did I feel it last night and today. My body decided to r... Read more
What a weekend!

It has been a good weekend! My oldest won her soccer game against a really aggressive team 3-1. My youngest won his first tackle football game of the season 18-6. My entire family went to a Zombie Walk where all the money raised benefits a ho... Read more
