Goodbye 12 pounds, hello sock yarn!

Wednesday, July 03, 2013      8 comments

For my first 10 pound weight loss, I promised myself new sock yarn and a music lesson. I bought the yarn yesterday. I may have to move the music lesson down to another goal, I can't really afford it yet. Besides, if I swing things right, I ca... Read more

Can I do this?

Thursday, June 27, 2013      4 comments

At my last meeting with my dietitian we talked a lot about my successes, and a few of the things I still felt needed work. She’s an interesting woman, my dietitian, and her choice of extreme pointed toed stilettos seems totally at odds with her... Read more

How would it feel to send all my big clothes to goodwill?

Tuesday, June 18, 2013      7 comments

That's the question Sparkcoach asked me today. How would I feel? Oddly enough not so great. How many times in my life have I released those fat clothes, only to have to buy a whole new set in another year or two? Frankly, the idea scares... Read more

All I can do is Tri

Wednesday, June 05, 2013      7 comments

*SNORT!* Get it? "Tri"? Okay so it's lame, hackneyed, whatever. I'm just really into triathlon jokes these days. So sue me, if you can find me. I cut 17 minutes off my time for last year, no doubt due to not having to use a walking... Read more

Is it a bump in the road, or just life happening?

Thursday, May 30, 2013      2 comments

Yesterday I went home with the determination to get going on Couch to 5K. It was a glorious sunny day, and just perfect running weather…not that I would exactly call what I do running, but it’s more like running than like walking. Ah, but ... Read more

Tuesday, May 28, 2013      2 comments

I have always hated doing collages. Mine always seemed to boring compared to everybody else's. Besides, wouldn't it be more fun to just draw what I wanted? So I stubbornly refused for something like 4 years to create a motivational collage. ... Read more

Curse you potato salad!

Wednesday, May 15, 2013      5 comments

I can't stress enough just how much I hate tracking my food. It has been my downfall for years. I'm on program again, and tracking my food, whether I like it or not. *SIGH* Today at work we had a baby shower for one of my coworkers. All... Read more
