Looking Upward and Onward
Monday, December 25, 2017      1 comments

This year has been a year of loss (but not weight!) for me, and I fell into a bit of depression. By nature I am an optimistic person and I hope to utilize this strength to have a good 2018. There have been days when I felt I was on the losing e... Read more
Happy Birthday to Me
Monday, January 12, 2015      6 comments

I love to hear what people do on their birthdays (I have had good and bad ones over all the years) so I will post how mine goes. I have decided to gift myself with the following: 1) a budget-busting new exercise bra (pun intended) . I usually ... Read more
WEC Blog: The person behind my mask
Saturday, November 01, 2014      3 comments

Inside me there is a dancer and possibly even a singer. But I wear a rigid mask that prevents me from doing either. I think if that mask ever falls off you would find a wild dance somewhere. I have worries about being laughed at and looking ... Read more
Superhero Strength Here
Friday, October 31, 2014      3 comments

I have had many obstacles thrown my way in life, just like everyone else, I imagine. I am very shy (it runs on both sides of my family) and 99% of the time choose to withdraw from anything that might call attention to me. Throughout school I w... Read more
10000 Steps
Monday, October 27, 2014      3 comments

At least I think I did 10000 steps. I haven't figured out how to get Map My Walk to show steps. The wind was against me and I had to hold on to my hat. There is still some pretty color although it is past its prime in my area. Came home to m... Read more

My husband confessed to me as we drove home from the gym in the pouring rain (it has been raining since last night and the roads have huge puddles everywhere!) that he would no... Read more
Too little sleep, no rich color change outside but a good day...
Saturday, October 11, 2014      7 comments

I had a “freakout” night where I woke up a little after 1 and couldn't fall back asleep. I went downstairs to read until 3:30 and then managed to sleep 3 hours upstairs. Hubby is a light sleeper and he came downstairs to investigate, poor guy. ... Read more
Resilience (BLC26 Challenge Log)
Sunday, October 05, 2014      7 comments

I often wished that I had a higher IQ, but one good thing I was born with is resilience. This trait has defined my life. Growing up was tough- both my parents suffered from extreme, untreated depression. My father had serious substance ab... Read more
Last computer access for a while...

I will miss you for a while, Amber Amazon Warriors! I hiked in Kentucky today; was 4 hours long and of course I got lost. A hike is not a hike for me if I don't get lost. My original plan was to stay on one trail. The trail was pretty narrow ... Read more

My main goal for BLC26 is to be motivated to a live a healthy lifestyle. I was nervous and shaky the previous rounds; it took me this long to start feeling that the challenges were doable. I feel very comfortable with the team members now a... Read more

I am so inspired by this quiet, awesome athlete! Seniors like me need to see lots of people in awesome physical shape. Sadly, many of my peers never made it to their 70th birthdays. When I received my terrifying cancer diagnosis years ago, ... Read more
The Silver Lining- BLC Entry
Tuesday, July 22, 2014      1 comments

The best thing about this BLC round is that I have thoroughly enjoyed being in this supportive group. I need that because I am insecure about my computer skills and had a terrible time finding out what to do and how to do the tasks. This has bee... Read more
Plan When I Slip Up (will be many)
Tuesday, May 13, 2014      1 comments

It is very important to me to be ready for times when I consume excess calories. The more the excess, the more I have to have a clear plan. The days from May 2-17 were and are full of meals outside the home and the Mothers Day holiday. I ate ... Read more

My biggest NSV happened today! Things got off to a poor start when I set off for the gym. I couldn't find my running top (today is 5K day on the treadmill!) so I had to put on a very, very tight one. I did not look forward to sucking my gut in... Read more
My Closet, My Department Store
Monday, October 21, 2013      3 comments

My closet is fun when I get into it now and then (usually when I am confident about losing pounds, which sadly isn't often!). Like a department store, it is full of quite an array of sizes (all in my favorite colors and styles). I tried on what... Read more
