So...I Got a Puppy...
Yeah, I got a puppy. Seeing her and getting her made me realize I'm not quite ready for a new dog, but my husband sure is. He had, like, hearts coming out of his eyes like a cartoon character when he saw her. Ah-OOO-ga! ... Read more
Tracking my calories today would be a lesson in futility, starting with even the most basic thing one takes for granted when tracking calories: I can't even tell where yesterday ended and today began! Overnight flights, man. I'm in Brasilia, the... Read more
Eh, sort of a NSV, followed by...not one.
I went to get a massage today, because I got an email special. I'd never used this guy before, and he was really, really good. His background was in physical therapy, so he really knew his stuff. Unfortunately, he was quite a talker, which I don... Read more
I went over my calories today. It was the first time. I had 10 days of being in-range. I didn't mean to go over, and I only barely went over...and what tipped me over was a pluot I'd forgotten I'd eaten at lunch! That's what happens when you eat... Read more
All Kinds of Loss...
Today wasn't easy.
I wound up not picking up Sammy's ashes. I couldn't. I really couldn't. I feel very bad about it but I made my husband go by himself. I could be there with Sammy at the end, because he needed me, but this was just too har... Read more
My Baby's Gone
We had to take Sammy to the vet on Monday to be put down. It was hands-down, no-question, the absolute worst day of my entire life...until the next day, which was even worse.
It had to be done. He cried a lot, couldn't stand at all and on S... Read more

Sugar Tooth Ramble
I haven't been around much, because I went to visit my grandmother with my sister AMYLONGHORN. Grandma's birthday was on Sunday, and it was really great to see her and make her happy and really hard to see how she's declining and then leave her.... Read more
Million Step Club
First, my sugar stuff...I ate a Jordan almond, and not a second one, which was good. We had a luncheon today at work, so I was holding off on eating, but I was STARVING. I ate one chocolate, and then had another one. One thing I noticed (not fo... Read more
Taming My Sweet Tooth
I don't actually have a sweet tooth.
Ice cream? Doesn't faze me.
Store-bought chocolate chip cookies? I'll pass.
Sugary cereal? Pshaw.
And so it goes...
So why am I taming my sweet tooth? Because I decided to do all t... Read more

5% Challenge Blog/(Tuesday)Wednesday
I didn't blog yesterday. I was just too tired after everything. I had a wonderful time, really, but with the two hour time difference, when I got home, it felt soooo late, so I didn't want to schlep to the business center.
So I'm going to ... Read more

This is going to be brief, because I am traveling on business.
