Operation: Birthday Party
We're going to a pot"duck" tonight. It's become kind of a tradition with a friend. Her birthday is in a few days, so she does a Thanksgiving/Christmas dinner where she serves duck and we all bring the sides. I'm bringing my dad's green bean c... Read more
Standing in My Truth
My status update from last Monday said I was regaining my footing that day.
Well, I lied.
I thought I might. I even got a few hours in, but in the end, I just didn't want to.
I haven't stepped on the scale yet to see what this ha... Read more
Call it sabotage, call it psyching myself out, call it subconscious planning...
...call it whatever you want. I'm not buying a present for myself tomorrow. I made today an epic fail. And I knew I was doing it, and I didn't give a damn.
It was a really bad day. And I shouldn't have let it railroad me, but I did, and... Read more
Picking a Fast Break
I'm trying to decide what my next Fast Break goal will be. The ones that look most enticing and helpful to me are the nutrition ones, but you only get one from each category (nutrition, fitness, motivation), and "tracking my food each day" is o... Read more
Not focusing on the scale...
So I've been saying I wanted to reward actions, not results. I've been saying that I will be proud of my accomplishments and my discipline with my FastBreak goals. I've been saying that the scale doesn't matter to me.
Um, I lied.
My ... Read more
I've Been Spending Too Much Time on Spark...
Yesterday, I was reflecting on the fact that I would not be going to my two hours of classes on Wednesdays but for Mary Ann. I really enjoy them, and I'm still going, even though my "deadline" has passed. Now Mary Ann doesn't make me go. I go... Read more
Knees 5 Things
Yesterday's Knees Challenge was to make a To-Do list for things to be done by Friday. I did it, but figured instead of shoving the scrap paper in my purse to be lost until Christmas when I'm pulling out receipts, I should post it here for mysel... Read more
Back to Basics
I was planning to switch my SparkDiet stage to one. But then I decided I didn't need to relearn how to use SparkPeople, so I didn't.
But, yes. I'm back to FastBreak goals. I'm going to do one at a time. This week, and I know, Starfish, ... Read more
That was cool. So...now what?
My 10-year high school reunion was this past weekend. I’m pretty sure that I lost no weight from the moment I decided to make it my “deadline,” as it were, to the time of the reunion. I was quite disappointed in myself, truthfully, I mean, I h... Read more
Punxsutawny Phil Pforty Challenge #3
So Phil has requested that we write down at least pfive pfavorite things about my body. So here it goes:
1. Today, I sliced my pfinger on one of those paper cutters. I bled kind of a lot and pfor kind of awhile, and it gave me time to th... Read more
I'm behind on the Punxatawny Phil Pforty Challenge, but I'm going to catch up!
Right now, I'm saving the "I'm All Right" groundhog dance for another time, but I want to go ahead and blog the Pfive Reasons I'm Pfabulous now.
1. I'm gen... Read more
Yesterday was a Good Day
As I went to bed last night (tonight? It's 3:45am...and I'm going back to bed in 15 minutes), I was thinking, and I was actually really happy.
I didn't have to be. My interim/new boss made a ridiculous request of us and gave us an impos... Read more
Mary Ann Makeover Challenge
My high school reunion is in five weeks. And I'm really kind of making a big deal about it, which is weird, because I didn't make a big deal of high school when I was there. It was like the time I was spending preparing for college. I did a l... Read more
You know that feeling when you KNOW you've forgotten something, but you have no idea what? Like in "Home Alone"?
I've had that feeling for, like, a WEEK. And I've been wanting to blog about it for kind of awhile, but I didn't know what to... Read more
And it all comes down to...
The man who fails to plan really plans to fail. I don't know who said the original version of this, but that one came from the great philosopher/rapper Chali 2Na.
It takes awhile for that to sink in. And even when it does, ... Read more
