I have been losing weight the last three weeks. I just realized it today after I posted my penultimate weigh-in on the Starfish forum. It made me realize that this journey isn't made up of landmarks or milestones, but rather, the plodding alon... Read more
A Good Memory...or Maybe Just One at a Time?
In my attempt to follow the Seven Habits and help them become, you know, HABITS, I had three activities to do with the first habit: Be Proactive.
1. Pay attention to my language and that of those around me to listen for reactive phrases vs... Read more
Got My Bike!
It came yesterday (AS PROMISED!--thanks Overstock!), and my husband and I put it together. I haven't used it yet, for a couple reasons:
1) My housemate is gone...that means strength training!
2) I'm writing this blog instead.

Focusing on What's Important
I got home last night around 6:00. It was so nice to sleep in my own bed, and super-nice to see the Little Dog! He was being so sweet last night, sleeping while we held him, like he hadn't been able to sleep so well the last couple nights.

So I'm blogging from my phone, and this is very interesting...
I'm sitting in a living room of a model apartment at my Grandma's complex. It is a really nice place. I haven't seen my Grandma yet, cuz we got in kind of late, but we've seen A... Read more
"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
