Rainy Friday morning

It CAN be done. Why can't I?

Got that out of my system

Ya, ok, I whined yesterday. Today I had a good talk with my trainer. I haven't given up. I don't have answers but I haven't given up. I need to remember I used to be here: (about 400lbs)  And then I was here for many years: (about 285lbs) And now I am here: (222lbs) I am healthier than I ever was. I am maintaining, even though at a higher weight than I want to be (222) I am maintaining. I need to keep remembering how far I have come! In other news... I went on the trail for the first time with Dexter over the weekend. He loved it: I remembered Ziva. I still miss her and it has been well over a year now since she passed. I took this photo of her on a rock on the trail one day:  Here's Dex on that same rock:  Thanks for listening to yesterday's whine. I hope to not repeat that any time too soon. Till next time, Walk-On! The Trail - April 2016

Pass me that bottle of whine

Just pass it and don't give me any lip. I am tired. I am tired of ALL this effort I put in to dropping a few pounds and nothing happens! I feel like this consumes my life. I hate it. I don't want to be defined by my weight loss battles. But if I don't teach the yoga class one day a week..... if I don't workout two mornings a week, with the trainer..... if I stopped leading the weight loss support group..... if I stopped worrying about every bit of food or drink I put into my mouth.... What then? What then....? Sixteen years ago, when I was in my mid 40's, I adopted a lifestyle that dropped weight off like crazy. Basically I ate once a day, Monday thru Friday. The weekends were my off days. I could eat whatever.  I lost 70 pounds. When I got pregnant and the doctor told me I could not keep up with this eating style, I gained it all back. Two weeks ago, I decided to try that again. It is called "Intermittent Fasting". Monday thru Friday I hav


Abby was bonked on the head by a 2 by 4 this week!!!  She's heard such things in her head before and when the third person pointed out that she wasn't walking like she used to, I think she may have finally gotten that message.  Funny how that works sometimes. We just don't listen!!! Dexter is always ready to go for a walk. He is a very busy puppy and walking will tire him out for a few seconds. There are no excuses to not incorporate walking into your schedule too. Don't forget to drink enough water, every day! "PLAY WITH ME!" Along with Abby and Dexter, I hope you will all, "Walk-On", too!
