Kitchen Cleanout 2015
Well, I took advantage of my weekend off, and embarked on an epic journey to clean out the kitchen, particularly the pantry, refrigerator, and freezer. It had been a long time since I've really cleaned them out, and I knew there were things that... Read more
Retail Christmas is finally over!!
So, I work in retail, and October through December is really hectic and tiring at work, and my eating habits and exercise habits tend to fall off, especially since we receive freight earlier in the day, but my day doesn't end any earlier (becaus... Read more
I posted my measurements at the beginning of 2014, so I thought I should update with newer measurements. I didn't focus on my health and fitness like I should have throughout the year, but I did make some progress.
Waist: 36 (-3.5)
Bust:... Read more
So, yeah, lack of sleep is not good...
My oldest son had two friends spend the night, so I had four boys (three 8 year olds and my 4 year old) here last night. It was tons of fun, and they really kept me laughing. That is, until we got to about 11pm. I tried to sneak off to bed since... Read more
I forgot to post this when I started. These are my beginning measurements. We'll see how they improve in a month or so (probably sooner, because I get impatient).

Nothin' Special New Year's Eve and Resolutions
So, we were going to go watch fireworks at Kemah, but we weren't really feeling it, and the boys really just wanted to go home, so we settled for dinner at IHOP - because that's not a diet blowout - and a trip to the pet store to get gravel for ... Read more
My tracker came in early!!
My UPS guy brought my cute little tracker today! Setting it up should have been very easy, but it was frustrating. Totally not SP's fault. Every time I tried to run the software installer, I would get a pop-up saying that "connect is already run... Read more
I took a walk today. Not too fast, since it's been a while. I felt like walking faster, maybe even jogging. Thankfully, I've been down this road before, so I knew that letting myself go as fast I wanted would lead to injury - sore knees and ankl... Read more
I ordered the tracker
Yup. Last year I was eye-balling the FitBit Flex, but I didn't like the idea of having to do SP and the FitBit website, so I kinda blew it off. I'm pretty good about wearing a pedometer, but it's just a cheap one that clicks when I walk.
So, w... Read more
Deciding on a virtual walk
Starting January 1st, I thought I would put my walking distances on a map, so that I can visually see how much I've walked. I'll start from here at my house, then head across Texas going west. We'll see if I'm able to make it out of the state!
