I Have to Trust My Journey

I originally posted this to my Weight Watchers group, but I decided to go ahead and post it here too.  After all, it is about my journey.

​I have to admit, this weight loss journey has been a never-ending journey for me. Sometimes I get so mad when I don’t see the results that I want and it makes me want to give up.  Why bother, right?  Well, guess what?  I’m not quitting. I am not a quitter. The number on the scale may not be  moving downward, even though I’m steadily tracking now, and trying to be extra careful during this outage (working evenings is hard)  I’m not going to give up. I’m old enough to realize now that this particular journey of my life will be an ongoing one and if it takes me more time to get to to the weight I was created to be at, then so be it.  I am on a journey and I will see the destination that I going to.  I am not defined by a number on the scale and it’s not going to beat me down. I am active and I’m eating better each and every day.  I am proud of myself and that’s good enough for me.  

Sorry for the long post.  No, actually. I’m not. I needed to put this out there.

Never Too Old

I am so excited about today’s ride!  I finally rode the hardest trail for the first time this year.  I rode it a few times last year, but wanted to get stronger in my legs before trying it again this year, because it starts off on steep climb that feels like it goes on forever!  I believe it is about 1/4 of a mile for the climb.  Needless to say, I have come a long way from last year to today.   Continue reading

Trying To Find Balance

I’m still trying to figure out how to do everything that I feel I need to do, and want to do during this part of my journey in life. Do you ever wonder how everyone seems to have it together, but you? I see people posting on Instagram and Facebook everything they do, and it makes me feel a little frustrated. How do they do it all???? Continue reading

Finding Balance Is Difficult

Just when I thought I was getting back into the swing of my workouts, a wrench got threw into the program.  What wrench, you may ask?  For me, the wrench is working a different schedule then my husband.

You see, usually I come straight home from work, change my clothes, let the dogs out, and then head to the gym.  I like for my workouts to be done by 6:30 at the latest, and that is only when I take a group class at the gym.

It’s A New Day

So, yes, the fog has lifted and I have been on the upward swing of things finally.  I think the doctor scared the crap out of me when she suggested I go on antidepressants if I didn’t snap out of my depressive attitude.

SNAP!

The last thing I want is to need a drug to help me cope with life.  Don’t get me wrong. Continue reading

There Will Always Be Excuses

Have you ever wondered if anyone really cares about your journey to gain better health and lose weight? I have been wondering about that a lot lately. Since March of this year, I haven’t been doing the greatest when it comes to eating right. I have kept up my workouts Continue reading

FlintLand: Hey, Fat Girl

I know this story has been out for a few years, but I just came across the post.  You know sometimes things come to you at just the right time, and reading this couldn’t have come at a more better time for me!

FlintLand: Hey, Fat Girl.: Yes, you. The one feigning to not see me when we cross paths on the running track. The one not even wearing sports gear, breathing heavy…
