Gym Mess - Advice Needed
My gym membership expires on Tuesday.
I went to the desk today to renew. And they want to charge me $50 more for a year membership than they did last year!
Okay, so that's $4 more per month. $1 more per week. Not going to break me, ... Read more
Something weird happened to my face last night...
I was on my way home from work. Not home. To the gym. In order to get to the gym, I take the same exit to get home, then, instead of turning left, I keep going to the end of the road. So I pass the turn home everyday I go to the gym. Often... Read more
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

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
