So, I see the last post on this blog was my Triathlon # 4.

Well, here is the update...

I re injured my Achilles tendon from doing the triathlon - even walking it. So, it hurts every day, not inspiring me to work out or anything. I tried to swim last week but even just the kicking fired it up pretty bad.

But here's the deal. I have been paying attention to my nutrition. Sort of. Some days I do great, others, not so much. Sometimes I think if I could live on an island with nothing to do but sleep and eat healthy I would do just fine.


I'd miss my Love, my amazing sons, my extended family and dear friends.

I feel like I have been fighting this battle so long I will never win. Especially since I don't even know what winning looks like at this point. It's not a number on the scale or a size of clothing. It's fitness and health and taking great care of myself and those around me.

I am doing a Bible study on Nehemiah and I wrote in the margin what the "rubble" was in my life. It was the same dumb stuff I wrote in the margin of a study I did YEARS ago... weight and clutter.


Same issues YEARS later... what could possibly be wrong with me? Are these things the thorns in my flesh? Am I tolerating these sins and just numb to the disaster of them?

I have no idea. I find myself recognizing the progress I HAVE made and anticipating more progress in the future. But, what about today?

Baby steps... I just gotta keep working on it and be okay with progress, whatever it looks like.

My favorite quote from Pinterest to date: No matter how slow you are moving you are still lapping the people on the couch.

Yup. That's me. Not on the couch. Gotta keep going...

Many thanks for all of you cheering me on. It really helps!


  1. OK. You HAVE to read this book if you haven't. it's amazing! It's called: Made to Crave by Lysa Terkeurst. It's subtitle is..."Satisfying Your Deepest Desire With God, Not Food." When I was reading it, I couldn't believe how the bad cravings went away. (I just need to start reading it again! LOL)

  2. "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming...". You are making progress, even your heart's desire counts. And know that the Creator of the universe is also cheering you on. Love you so.
