Good news bad news
Well, the doc says I'm down another 7 pounds, making a total of 15 since Thanksgiving. There's the good news.
The bad news; Metro's killing my bus route home, meaning I'll have to either drive (which cuts out my 2-mile walk), or figure out... Read more
Where the weight started
Most of this crap on my frame got on because my mind was occupied with a lot of everything else. It was college, and my mom is still a horrible cook, meaning I knew diddly squat about cooking. Second, I was in a nasty-difficult course of study (... Read more
How to avoid Girl Scout cookies going to waistline and still help the kids.
The Girl Scout cookie wagon came by. I did not buy a box of cookies, but I did slip the kid $5 - $1 for the troop, and $4 for a box of Samosas to send to the troops overseas.... Read more
The smoked salmon I ate on Saturday did NOT agree with me, leading to a very miserable Sunday sleeping off the results. The only thing I kept down were two bananas, a cucumber soda (the store didn't have any ginger ale in the cold section) and s... Read more
More time on Sparky, less time on Yahoo
Yahoo news is living up to its name. The comments section is just page after page of angry, vengeful, and bullying comments. Thing is, I can't help but wonder if this is how people really think once the politeness filters are off and the consequ... Read more
Losing weight in another area...
I did not hit the gym this weekend.
I cleaned out my closets instead, taking two full carloads (I have a Toyota Tercel) down to the Goodwill. Got rid of a nightstand, a chair, several blankets I don't use, a box load of kitchen gadgets, tw... Read more
Never underestimate a good workout
I took my frustrations out on the exercise bike. 60 minutes on the "cardio" (150 heartbeats a minute) setting, followed by 30 minutes of weightlifting and stretching afterward. It was two hours at the gym well spent.
I'm also playing Clue a... Read more
Loneliness and emotional eating
I went online and looked at the "viewer comments" on Yahoo News in regards to the Hatian disaster...and was overwhelmed by the sheer nastiness of the responses.
"I HATE HAITI. ... Read more
Final holiday - birthday
I stopped tracking because I kept forgetting. That, and I was becoming REALLY resentful of the tracking, as it was taking all the joy out of trying new things. That, and trying to dissect my own cooking was becoming a headache. I make X, using i... Read more
I went out with Patti yesterday. We hit the Goodwill on Dearborn. For those of you not in the Seattle area, that Goodwill is about the size of a Wal-Mart Super Center. Wal-Mart managed to make a lasting first (and last) impression when I poked m... Read more

OK, so I got turned away at the blood center for the usual reason (low blood iron), and told to come back after New Year.
I've been hitting the gym daily (for an average of 45-60 minutes at a whack) and following Sparkpeople's food diary. N... Read more
According to Sparky's tracker (and my legs), I've been overdoing it at the gym. I did not realize swimming burned that many calories. That, and I've been on the exercise bike, watching the afternoon news. I leave work in the early afternoon, wel... Read more
12 Days of cookies. In the lead up to Christmas, the IT department is offering free cookies as a gift to the staff. The staging point for the goodies is *right* behind my desk.
And half of what got me into this mess was a sweet tooth. BIG c... Read more
Food tracking - stinks. Exercise - FUN!
OK, the charting and tracking every calorie? Sucks. Because it, by nature, is unable to help much on some items, leaving you to guess.
Case in point: In Seattle, the teriyaki shack is EVERYWHERE. (http://www.seattleweekly.com/

That would be the sound of my stomach...again.
Well, since...Boy, howdy, I paid for it...ponying up for the gym, I've been stopping off and getting 30 minutes of swimming in every day save Thanksgiving. Swimming's the one thing I've been able to stick with consistently, even if I am the slo... Read more
