Uh-oh, I Lost My Workout Watch
Monday, September 23, 2013      5 comments

I lost my workout watch when I was in Houston about a week ago. It was a Polar F11 heart-rate monitor. (How DOES one work out without one of these heart-rate monitors?!) I've lost a lot over the past few years, and I've gotten pretty tou... Read more
Tricking Me Into Moving
Monday, August 26, 2013      9 comments

SEE BOTTOM FOR PICS! Saturday I was scheduled to walk/run about 4 miles. I made myself get my workout clothes on. Still, I didn't get going. I made excuses, I distracted myself. Then, when I finally went to leave, I realized I'd wai... Read more

I lost all that weight - 50 pounds. I did, I did. I knew how to keep it off, too, you know I did. But here's the thing. When I took down the wall of fat between me and my world, it empowered me. It made me feel like I could do anything.... Read more

Oh, my, my life! What a change, what an adventure, what a challenge. I would have NEVER predicted the past 2.5 years, but I'm not sure what I would have done differently if I could have. And now, it's time for some baby steps out of my ho... Read more
Why Women Can't Do Pull-Ups...Why People Don't Exercise
Saturday, November 24, 2012      17 comments

I found these two articles today while I was on the web. I thought I'd share them with you, and put them somewhere I can refer to them again: One of them is about why people don't exercise, even though it feels good to do. I found thi... Read more

I ran the 5 mile Turkey Trot on Thanxgiving. Correction. I walked the first three miles with a friend who's losing weight, and then I ran the last two. Today, I created a schedule so I can train for the Austin Distance Challenge. I've al... Read more

Romance, Writing and Rock Star Dreams
Tuesday, September 18, 2012      8 comments

From the time I was a little girl, I wanted to be a writer, I wanted to be a rock star, and I wanted to be passionately loved. But as I got older, I saw my dreams dying on the vine, my heart shriveling from a lack of love, and my time getting sh... Read more

I feel better, I look better, I sleep better, I have a better handle on all the changes going on in my life. It's pretty simple for me. If I get off my a$$, I get all... Read more
Body Dysmorphia
Sunday, July 01, 2012      8 comments

Is there such a thing? I think so. I have this. When I'm overweight, I don't see it, when I'm thin, I don't see it. I've figured out three ways to tell where I'm at: 1) Take a picture of myself. I'm lucky that I don't have a lo... Read more
Slow Starts and Alot of Change
Sunday, June 24, 2012      13 comments

It's taking me a little while to get started back full on with this. That's okay because my experience in the past is that a small amount of change at a time is what sticks best for me. What I've done so far is workout more than I was ... Read more
