Biggest Loser Begins!

My sister and I are starting another attempt at a biggest loser contest. Who ever loses the biggest percentage of weight wins. The contest runs until November 15th. We ‘play’ for bragging rights. It is off to a rough start… still waiting for her weigh in. I am fairly confident I will smash her again. ;) I have won the last several times we ‘played’. Wish me luck all. Oh, starting weight for me… 303.0 lbs. I will post my results weekly…

Rough Week

I struggled quite a bit this week. Tuesday was the third anniversary of losing our twin daughters. I did go walking 3 times and I did the TotalGym three times. However, my diet was not good. I am going to get it tuned up a bit this week moving forward. On the plus side I lost 2.4 lbs so that is not horrible. I will do better next week :)

Glowing Embers

The leaves have begun to change. There are glowing embers of red, orange, and gold, among the green leaves. It is a slow gradual process. As the temperatures slowly drift downward; the trees prepare for sleep.

I love this time of the year. Things slow down, the heat and humidity of summer finally begins to lose its hold. The scenery becomes beautiful. I love the sights, sounds, and smells of Autumn. Apple cider, pumpkin pie, playing in the leaves, and watching football on Sundays.

It is a time that becomes more and more focused on family. The holiday season is just right around the bend. I am getting excited. The boys will be more aware of the holidays. It is an exciting time for them.

I will leave you all with this…

Red, orange, and yellow deep

So I have finished sorting things out. I have four main sections and they are generally broken down into four sub sections. I will cover them in a bit of detail so you can understand my layout mentality. You can just jump right in, the main sections are pretty self explanatory, with the exception of “The Journey”. The Journey is my main blog and covers my day to day functioning towards self improvement. Continue reading
