I ran......
Wednesday, July 11, 2012      3 comments

Today instead of just walking my usual fast pace, I ran! I'll admit I did NOT enjoy it. I hate the feeling of the lactic acid building up in my muscles and the shortness of breath, but I did it anyway. I'd walk so far and then run so far and ... Read more
A new goal.
Tuesday, July 10, 2012      2 comments

I decided that I wanted to lose a few more pounds than I originally had planned. My goal is 10 lbs. It's a good weight for me; not too low or two high. It also gives me a weight range that is manageable for me. The scale was kind this mornin... Read more

I am taking the day off from exercise, well at least walking. I've cleaned the oven, moved the small shed to a new place in the yard and I'm going to hand wash the car. I may still have to walk tonight; it seems too weird not to walk daily now... Read more
Going strong...

Today I walked three miles in less than an hour. I've got my groove back! I've also stayed at the lower end of my calorie range for the past few days and the weight is coming off. I'm still a little "upset" that I will always have to log and ... Read more
Need more dedication

I've determined that I need to go back to to the mindset I had when I first lost my weight. I think I will always have to log my food and exercise. I'm just not good at "eyeballing it." The weight just creeps on little by little and I'm deter... Read more

My mom, my kids and I are on the road to my cousin's 40th anniversary. I'm proud of myself! I did well with my eating today even though we were traveling. I'm actually a bit under my calorie range. I also got my walk in this morning before I... Read more

At my lowest point in this journey I weighed 133 lbs. I'll admit it was too little for my frame and my age. However, I'm fast becoming more than frustrated with my weight now creeping up to 150 lbs. My ideal is between 140 - 145 lbs. I'm wat... Read more

I did my normal walking yesterday. I had my oldest daughter and our two dogs to keep me company. I decided to start some strength training so did my "nomal" regiment of push-ups and boy am I sore today! It's a good sore and one I intend to ke... Read more

Today a friend of mine and I went walking while our daughters played with their horses. It's a great road and we go anywhere from three to five miles each time. Today I brough... Read more
Back in the Saddle
Monday, June 18, 2012      1 comments

I'm back in the saddle, both figuratively and literally speaking. I haven't been very good about logging my food and exercise lately and I've paid for it. About 5 to 7 lbs have managed to creep back on. So I'm realizing that I will never be a... Read more

Well, the end of school was very busy. We had a dedication for my last therapy dog. The school bought a bench and stepping stones in memory of my Jozee. She was at school for 12 years and made such an impact on the school. School is ou... Read more

I reached my one year maintenance in April, but I can't seem to keep the weight from creeping back on. I'm walking two to three times a day for 1/2 hour each time. I'm watching what I eat. However, I'm also sleep deprived and a little s... Read more
