Okay, so I had a few goals this week on which I wanted to focus. How'd I do?
1.5 pounds down this wee... Read more
Weekly Goals April 8-15
Trying to stay organized this week. I think it will help to put it in a blog. I'd put it in my calendar, but I used the monthly calendar to get everything down for the week, and it's written kind of small and disorganized-like. Just for my ow... Read more
Waiting for the Awesome
I'm thinking it's about time for some Awesome.
Thing is, there hasn't been any Awesome coming my way for awhile now. This is evidenced by the blogs I seem to have a penchant for writing.
Incredibly, there is no eye-rolling emoticon.... Read more
Last Pre-Challenge Assignment
So the last pre-challenge assignment is to list all the reasons/excuses why our plans failed with regard to exercise and diet and how we can resolve these reasons/excuses.
I'm sure this has been assigned before, but I'm not sure I've done i... Read more
Too Long for a Status Update, Too Short for a Blog...
...so I made it a blog anyway.
I'm going to meet up with an old friend after work. We're going to a ... Read more
Where Do I Go?
I love the musical "Hair." I have for ages. For availability reasons (read: it's on DVD), I'm partial to Treat Williams's George Berger, though I obviously made a beeline to the Kennedy Center as soon as the Broadway production made its way to... Read more
Bummer to Be a Downer
I appreciate the responses to my blog post this morning. I felt bad after I wrote it, and it's a shame, because I was feeling okay before I wrote it. That is, I think writing the blog bummed me out more than the content of the blog. It became... Read more
A New Sense of Urgency
My husband's from Peru.
I've been there three times with him, I think. The first time, I was pretty... Read more
A Survey of My Eating and Conclusions Thereof
Today I tallied most of my tracked meals from the last year or so to figure out what I eat overall. I got this idea from a link that Oliver (HAKAPES) posted on someone else's blog about meeting goals.
What got me thinking about this was th... Read more
Better Than Ice Cream
So, yesterday, I think someone replaced my morning wrap with a hormone.
I was a mess, and I am not to the point in my cycle where I have a convenient reason waiting for me to pick up on it.
I don't know why. And it wasn't big stuff th... Read more
Mental Health Day
I went to go watch a buddy of mine from grad school play at a bar in Arlington on Thursday. Show started late--9pm--and I love my sleep, so I went ahead and took a vacation day on Friday to sleep in late. I'm to a point in my 7 Habits reading ... Read more
Oh, hello, February!
I did fine in January. I did a lot of what I said I would do. I cleaned the wall by Sammy's food bowl. I cleaned the microwave. I read three books, though not the three I said I would. However, I did not buy something to replace TV trays in... Read more
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.
