Life is noisy:)

Friday, August 24th 2012

My life has a lot of "noise" going on and I'm feeling a little overwhelmed.
Sending Abby to school and her having a difficult time adjusting. Meg starting grad school and her interviewing for jobs and looking for an apartment. Erin who is unsure what she wants to do with her life. My hair dresser (I know what you may be thinking) of 10 years is leaving and I need to find someone new. Jim's Dad's recovery from his heart attack. Me adjusting to the empty nest. Work noise...

Exercise -

Tuesday, August 21st 2012

Today I took the dog for a walk. The End:)

Recently, I haven't felt motivated enough to do even this; but I bit the bullet tonight and did it. Most may think, no big deal. For me - this is part of change of habit (moving mountains). I'm hoping to do this a few more times this week and begin the journey BACK to my old friend; exercise.

Stay tuned...

Oh, forgot to tell you my weight (211 - does anyone else notice I'm going the wrong direction?)...

Being honest with yourself

Friday, July 27th 2012

I received a great comment from a CK member that I need to move to the front of mind in ym journey; be honest with yourself.

So with that, I need to have a good look in the mirror at the individual who continuously goes 150-200 calories over her target and wonders why the scale isn't moving. Reality is, when I start hitting my target calories, my scale will move.

Thank you - I have a new game face on... Happy Friday!

So; I need to get this started

Tuesday, July 3rd 2012

For the past few years, I've started and not finished diets. I always end up disapointed with myself and feel even worse about the overweight, unhealthy person I've become. So why not today - get started on changing my diet destiny. I'm hoping blogging might be away to jump start me to success. Get what's in my head out and visible. Get the bad thoughts that cause me to fail captured so history doesn't repeat itself. So with that...

I'm starting today at 205. How embarassing to put th...
