The Past, The Present and The Future
Tuesday, March 05, 2019      4 comments

The Past: I've been a member of Sparkpeople for quite a while now. I've met new friends that I treasure so much. I've learned new ways to deal with my overeating. And the need to recognize how much my emotions guide me. The Present: I'm sti... Read more
Starting a New Year
Monday, January 02, 2017      4 comments

I've been having a tough time lately. Caring for a parent with Alzheimers and dementia is grueling. My siblings are not much help. I keep telling myself that I can only be responsible for me. (and of course, taking care of my Dad) Hopefully medi... Read more
I'm giving myself permission to be mad at me. (for today)
Tuesday, June 30, 2015      4 comments

After just reading a dear friends blog, I answered with "let's give ourselves a kick in the rear and get going". It sounds a little harsh and I must apologize. (so sorry Donna, my friend) Then I wondered why I wasn't more supportive in my answer... Read more
What about those 'extra' calories you get from your exercise?
Friday, September 26, 2014      3 comments

I've been very good lately with logging my food. But I'm struggling with those 'extra' calories you can have, after you've done some exercise. Since my fitbit is connected to the sparkpeople site, it automatically tells me I can eat more. I don'... Read more
Ok Cathy, quit making excuses!
Tuesday, September 02, 2014      3 comments

It's been a long time since I've blogged, and maybe I need to start doing it more often. I think it's a great place to share emotions that often cause me to eat. (and eat, and eat) My team challenge for September is to log my food. This fo... Read more
I've been downsized, and not in a good way!
Tuesday, October 01, 2013      12 comments

I wish I could say my body has been downsized, but it just isn't. No, after 19 yrs of working at the same company, I received a permanent layoff. About a third of our plant got it, but it just feels like crap. I'm 52 yrs old and not sure what di... Read more
My train won't stay on track.
Thursday, July 25, 2013      7 comments

I seem to be struggling lately with my journey, and I can't seem to put my finger on the reason. I've only barely been able to keep my weight on my ticker, and certainly not losing any. And it's not that I've gained a bunch of muscle. No, not th... Read more
First 5K of 2013
Saturday, June 01, 2013      7 comments

What a great way to start off a new month. The first 5K of the season is complete. It was a nice day, but it showed me that I have room for improvement. First off, when I walk, I usually start off a little slower, then build up speed. (I'v... Read more
My first virtual 10K? Done!!!
Friday, October 26, 2012      11 comments

I did it! I'm not sure what crazy thought I was thinking when I signed up for the Trick or Treat Trot and clicked on the 10k, but I did it. And after stopping midway at the house, to use the rest room, add a shirt, grab sunglasses and Kleenex, I... Read more

Ah, rest is good?
Monday, September 03, 2012      7 comments

I've just been contemplating my extremely lazy day yesterday. I just sat and read my Kindle most of the day. I didn't eat a lot, and drank my water, but my body just didn't want to get up and go. Funny thing is, by evening, I finished the book I... Read more
Plan your trip carefully.
Friday, August 24, 2012      6 comments

I received this in an email, and I loved it. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county, to a foreign country, but not to where the guilt is. Don't burden you heart with guilt trips. The past is done, and we've learned wh... Read more
Can I share nicely?
Friday, August 17, 2012      5 comments

Since deciding I was going to blog at least once a week, I've been thinking of topics to blog about. Wow, did I think of a lot of them. But I'll just start with one for today. This topic has to do with sharing your weight loss journey with... Read more
Can't wait until tomorrow!

Well, tomorrow is the 32nd Annual Antigo Tater Trot. I'll be participating in the 4 mile walk, with my daughter, Stacy, (also a sparker), my good sparkfriend Terry, (who I'll meet for the first time in person), and Steve. (husband of good sparkf... Read more
Inspired by Others!
Sunday, August 05, 2012      4 comments

After reading sparkfriends, Sharon and Donna's blogs, I've been equally inspired to start writing some blogs again. I like the goal of trying for once a week. So for today, I'll just share what I'm currently doing; prepping for tomorrow's colo... Read more
