Why is this so hard?
Sunday, April 30, 2017      7 comments

From SP Motivator to 204 pile of miserable. I've gained back all but about 6 pounds of what I'd lost. And I've tried several times to get back on; why is it so hard to come back? I know I can do this. I've done it! VERY successfully;... Read more

Sunday, my prayers were answered. My husband came home! We're taking things a little at a time, and trying to be patient and gentle with each other. We have a lot of things to recover from, and it's going to take a lot of time, but he's HERE, a... Read more

If you recognize that phrase, then perhaps you are no stranger to 12 step programs. Neither am I. I have been a member of Al Anon for years; it was the only thing that helped me survive my husband's alcoholism. Now though, I walk on ... Read more

I've had a few people ask me how I'm doing. Honestly? Still not well. I've lost 18 lbs this month. Given that I'm not about 8 pounds from my goal weight... this isn't good. I've come to some realizations about myself that I don't li... Read more

Well, after much aggravation, tons of cussing at modern technology, I'm now officially enrolled in an insurance plan. For the first time in 10 years, I can afford to go to a doctor. Got a pretty decent deductible, and with the tax credit, I'm o... Read more
Circuit training... bloopers and pain
Friday, February 14, 2014      5 comments

So our gym has added a premium class with a football training coach. Pretty standard circuit training, a little bit of crossfit-inspired (including those big ropes.) I have no intention of spending extra money on it (it's $10 a class, or $... Read more

So tonight I had one of my favorite dinners. Velveeta shells and cheese! I love this stuff. It's definitely a trigger food for me, but hey, I had a limited amount, and that's not the problem. I mixed it with Rotel and tuna. Pretty tasty and fill... Read more

So after I hit the gym this morning (and I'm proud of my trip) I got the red "burning too many calories" message in my fitness tracker. So I decided now would be a good time to make the switch to the variable calorie tracker, the new one that SP... Read more

Today has been a great day. I got a lot of GOOD sleep last night; went to bed about 10:30, with my oldest daughter. Normally I go to bed at 1 or later! We slept well, and my husband apparently slept on the couch, LOL. No sympathy, means I rested... Read more

So a friend of mine joined my gym, and was trying to get me to go, so I figured... why not? I'm paying for the stupid membership. We went, and I feel so good right now. The only drawback is she's one of those that likes to go for hours at ... Read more
