Challenges

I think I’ve figured out what motivates me…or should I say, KEEPS me motivated. I’ve not yet figured out what sets the switch off that makes me (or anyone) suddenly get all hot for fitness and then completely lose interest but I have figured out what keeps me going once that switch has been flipped.

Life is not all hats and horns

…and neither is this weight-loss mission.

I’ve gained my stupid pounds back – the ones that I keep dancing with over and over again. It’s not like I don’t understand why I am gaining weight. What I don’t understand is how ‘that thing’ that makes people gung-ho about accomplishing something works. I’m certain that it’s [...]

Obesity… it’s morbid.

big ole’ horn-o-arthritis

I have some more on my upper back and my tailbone is almost fused with my lowest disk. My neck is [...]

Visit to the chiropractor

*sigh*

I went to a new chiropractor. Quite impressive – a husband and wife team.  They were really nice, super informative and very comfortable to be around.

Back pain is something that I’ve just grown accustomed to.  When asked to describe my level of pain on a scale from one to ten, I often pick [...]
