"I Used to Be Fat"
Has anyone seen this show? It's on Logo, and it's about teenagers who are overweight, as far as I can see. I'm watching a marathon of it right now as I clean up and pack. I have a friend coming over to watch Sammy tonight, because my housemat... Read more
Why I Won't Order from Them EVER AGAIN
I ordered from this website for the first time December 12, 2011. They sent the order to my old apartment. I left that apartment in March 2010. WHY would you pull an address from PayPal and not confirm the address during the checkout process?... Read more
That's the beginning of my Bottom Line underneath a checklist of "small bites" I'm planning to take this year.
I'm sitting here, armed with my brand new FranklinCovey planner, plotting my road map to the five resolutions to which I'm commit... Read more
I haven't been around much lately. I had the last several days off because my sister was in town. This meant too much eating and too little moving.
I'm also a little down because the stationary bike I bought is on back order till January ... Read more
You're going to get one, and maybe two, more updates on my gym drama.
Before I got home to meet the electrician, I stopped by the gym to see the hot assistant manager, and he wasn't there. The man at the desk said he'd be there after 2. S... Read more
Okay, Last Update, I Promise
I found a bike. Great reviews, reasonably priced. I'm quite pleased.
But I can't give up my membership. As I was talking it over with my husband last night (tonight? It's 3:45 am), I mentioned how sad I was to stop going to see Sharon (... Read more
Lots to Think About
I went to husband's big gym with him today. I got a cheaper per-month deal there in, like, five seconds.
So there, Marcos!
I found some stationary bikes I liked online, but being 4'10", I knew I'd need to be able to try them out to ma... Read more
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
