My New Year's Resolution is to gain control over my sugar addiction. I have a monthly step-down plan and am on-target. Surprisingly enough, sweet drinks seem not to stimulate the addictive effect like sweet treats do. Therefore, I allow mysel... Read more

For the first time in my life, I took a second job at age 39. I am a cashier at the best grocery store in town, which also happens to be within walking distance of my home. Not only does it offer the best produce, but management is great, my c... Read more

Some days, it is hard to wake up because I did not get enough sleep the night before; other times it is hard because of the early hour and the darkness. It may because my bedroom is cold and I would rather stay under the covers, or maybe just b... Read more

Tuesday, January 01, 2013      13 comments

"Lisa's Amazing Year" is how my mom has dubbed 2012. In 2012, I marked my five-year anniversary at my primary job (the longest I have ever stayed with one employer), blasted past my goal time in my first-ever stair climb race (35 flights!), ado... Read more

We are almost two weeks into our 21-Day No Junk Food Challenge. It has been harder than I expected. I have caved a couple times, I still haven't figured out why I am so tired, and I am feel like I am hungry all the time too. When I got on the... Read more

I felt more energetic today in spite of the short night's sleep last night. Was it because instead of my morning Shakeology, I had a Cool Chocolate Mint Clif bar (with caffeine)? Was it because I had no breads of any sort today? Is it because... Read more

Today begins Day Five of the No Junk Food Challenge. My results are not yet what I expected, but we may be getting there. The challenge does not require that I give up caffeine, but I did have to quit drinking coffee because I put as much junk... Read more
Will it get better?

Of course it will! But on days like yesterday, it can be hard to remember that. I was tired and unfocused. All I wanted to do was come home. I was not particularly sleepy most of the day; I just felt worn down and lethargic. Was it because ... Read more

I am a computer junkie. I often lose focus on my goals. When there is chocolate available, or I feel "too tired" for a workout, it is easy to figure this one treat or one missed workout won't hurt. Sometimes, I just don't even think about it.... Read more
