So many of you know that I like to prepare my own food and eat whole foods most of the time. I cook everyday for my family. It’s a large commitment and not easy for someone who really if I didn’t have to feed others would be quite boring in the food arena. I don’t […]
My smile has been coming back. I was at the office yesterday which had me out of the house. I found my long commute freeing and my music which always plays in my car made me happy. But I think the biggest positive was I was back into the gym!
So these are the things I did yesterday and today to make myself feel better……
I’ve been in a rutt. I’ve been sick. Not feeling well. Feeling sad. The sad piece really makes me concerned. Sad is not an adjective I’d use to describe myself. But saying I’ve been sad is honest. It’s a general sadness. I’ve recognized it and shared it with my husband. The sadness has been affecting […]
It’s OK to Struggle. It may not feel good but in a way it is part of the process. It’s OK to Struggle. It may even make you stronger in your efforts to persevere.
So I hadn’t mentioned online recently that for the last few weeks I had been struggling with some “lady” issues. Ughhh! You know you put things off way too long and then they catch up with you and you have to do something…. NOW.
It’s Spring and the windows are opening and the fresh air is flowing in. I pull out the spring/summer clothes and inevitably end up getting rid of lots of stuff. Today was no different. Not only was I going to turn over the clothing for the seasonal switch, but we entered the Whistlers room for….. […]
I’m hoping I learned something these last few days. It’s something I’ve experienced over and over again. If I can defend myself, then I’d say I’m better than I use to be. But I still take on way too much, ignore my needs and then implode.
Regain happens. It’s how you react to it that really makes a difference. There’s lots of talk about regain after weight loss surgery. I can tell you first hand if you don’t address regain right way it gets more difficult to get back off.
The Whistler and I are on a road trip. To see family. We are taking my Mom on the road to see her siblings. Bringing old and new together. It’s always inspiring. Here’s a little gem to brighten your morning.
I had to share with you a funny birthday card I received and how my son interpreted it. It made me smile.
When I am aware of: what I eat and how I move and what I weigh then I am most well.
It’s been more than a week since my Birthday 5K race. But I wanted to weigh in with all of you on my results. I received so many great NIke + cheers during the race and many well wishes as I prepared and during the day. All of your motivation carried me through the race.
I’ve been quiet. It’s unlike me. I’m chatty. I’m loud. But this week I’ve been Quiet.
This is my first weigh in towards my Losing the Regain efforts. I decided to weigh in on Mondays during my focused attention plan towards my regain loss. I’m doing a focused challenge for the next 11 weeks until my vacation on June 25th. Choosing Mondays for my weigh in was a bit scary. Weekends […]
The other night we watched the Movie “Rise of the Guardians.” It is an animated movie about childhood wonders and believing. Since the Whistler recently came to the understanding that the Easter Bunny and Santa are tales a few friends had suggested we watch it.
There you have it my last run before my 5K on Saturday. I’m fairly conservative with my running. I try not to run consecutive days since I feel it is too hard on my mature body LOL. Yeah I will be 47 on Saturday. I in fact do not feel old. I feel the opposite.
Video update from me today. Weighed in for the start of my Losing the Regain effort. As I mentioned earlier I want to video tape the hard times. I want to talk about what my brain is saying to myself. I want to look back and watch these videos.
