Back Again, Again!!!


Its been a long time…

Like 6 months…

The Healthy Before 40 didn’t work out to well…

So, let’s try getting HEALTHY @ 40!!!!

I will be turning 40 years old tomorrow. I need to get healthier.

If you have been following me for a while, you know that I have been through a lot... kidney stones, cancer, surgeries... but now I have been having heart issues. It is a wake up call that NEEDS to be listened to.

So, I need to get healthy. Its a matter of life and death.

Stick around and help me, encourage me and kick my ass when I need it.

Oh. My. God! What the hell have I done. 

I got on the scale this morning because I am starting back on track today. It said 255.9 (which was better than a split second before when it said 257). I weighed 209 in November 2015. I have gained back almost 50 pounds in a year and a half. I want to throw up. 

But, we start again… I have to get healthier. I hurt all over. My back kills me all the time. I have no energy and don’t want to DO anything. I have stomach issues. I am done with this. We prepped meals this weekend and I will be counting calories and exercising (at least trying). 

If you could give me all the support you can spare I would appreciate it.

First (well, you know) Downsizing Me Log comes next week…

Stick around and check it out.

April 1 2017 - Let's Do This!!!

April 1st

Time goes so fast. I remember saying in October that I was going to get healthy before I turn 40 this October. That was almost 6 months ago…

And it has not gone well. I have gained back 40 pounds since losing all the weight in 2015 (NOT all in the last 6 months!!). I only have a few things that I can wear. I am tired all the time and I don’t want to do anything.

So, we start again. I am not starting over because I will NEVER get back to where I was when I started (305 pounds in 2008). I have 6 months to get as healthy as I can before I turn 40. I know that I can not get to goal in this time frame. I know it will not be perfect, but it will be a start.

I am starting a Health Journal, I have become obsessed with planners and the planning world so what better way to keep track of my health and fitness then to combine my desire to be healthier with my passion for planners! . I need to figure out what will work for me (and hubby) food-wise, exercise-wise and just life-wise. I will be going back to my weekly blog posts about my weight and food. I will be also including some posts on my Planner Life and the possibility of opening my own Sticker Store!!!!

Life goes on and moves at what seems like warp speed. But I would love for it to slow down, even just a little.

Stick around and join me!
