NutriBullet died and aerobic painting

Monday, January 26, 2015      3 comments

It figures--just when we're getting ready to get back into regular Blasting, our NutriBullet died. It'll be awhile before we can afford a new one. In the meantime, no smoothies for us. :( I've been priming some doors and woodwork this after... Read more

This is stupid, but it's actually PROGRESS

Friday, January 23, 2015      8 comments

I went out to start the car this morning so it could heat up and clear the windshield before I left. There was an uneven ridge of snow right outside the car door, and when I went to get out of the car, I lost my footing on the ridge and fel... Read more

Sick since New Year's, weighing, painting rooms

Thursday, January 15, 2015      2 comments

It's been a rough start to 2015. My dh has been sick with some long-lasting respiratory virus since two days after Christmas, then I caught it on New Year's Eve. Here it is the middle of January, and we're just getting back to normal. We still h... Read more

Happy New Year (edited)

Thursday, January 01, 2015      3 comments

Happy New Year! (Jan. 2 edited to add: Nope, changed my mind. Going to keep weighing daily for now. Maybe someday I won't do that, but for now, I like to have the info.) I've been a daily weigher for YEARS, but for 2015 I'm going to tr... Read more

2015 goal, art supplies instead of Reese's, 60 by 60

Sunday, December 28, 2014      5 comments

I don't make New Year's resolutions, but I do think about some things I'd like to do in the coming year. As far as weight loss goes, my goal for 2015 is to get to 250 pounds or less. I'm in the high 270s now, so a goal like that is major, a... Read more

My Anti-Grinch Elixir

Monday, December 22, 2014      5 comments

My mood is not "merry and bright" today. I've had a headache for about three days in a row. There are some situations going on in part of the family that I worry about. DH and I haven't been eating right at all for the last couple of weeks. ... Read more

Long time coming--20 pounds off!

Tuesday, December 09, 2014      7 comments

I'm so excited. I saw 277 on the scale this morning, which means I'm 20 pounds lighter! It's been a long time coming, about a year, but that's okay. I'm just glad to see it. I have two mini-goals coming up: getting to 275 or under by t... Read more

278 this morning, which makes me 19 pounds lighter--yay! Still looking forward to being 275 or under by the end of this month. Can I do it? ... Read more

I'm *this close* to breaking into the 270s

Monday, November 24, 2014      7 comments

I've been in the low 280s for this whole month so far. Went up to 284 one day, then got back down to 280. I've been up and down in this range all month. Today I'm 280.2, which is *this close* to breaking into the 270s. I very much want to h... Read more

Something new: eat light at night

Tuesday, November 04, 2014      3 comments

I've often read about this, but didn't apply it to us before until today when it occurred to me that we don't need to be eating our biggest meal at night then going to bed awhile later. My husband and I are empty-nesters, so we can eat what... Read more

I want to be 275 or below by the end of the year

Friday, October 31, 2014      5 comments

Some people say that today actually starts the "holiday season", meaning that there are several big occasions when food could trip us up, starting with today. We don't do Halloween, so there aren't bowls of candy around the house calling my name... Read more

I walked over 12,000 steps yesterday, and down another pound

Tuesday, October 07, 2014      9 comments

Yesterday I walked over 12,000 steps. It was my first time walking this much since I've had my Fitbit. I didn't think it would be possible to walk that much in a day when I'm still in the 280s, but I did. It wasn't even by going for a purpo... Read more

Walking progress and misc. thoughts

Wednesday, September 24, 2014      5 comments

I didn't realize it, but I've improved on my daily steps. I knew I was easily getting many more days of 7000 or 8000 steps, but didn't realize that my new "average steps" number is now in the 7000s. Earlier this spring it was only in the 5000s, ... Read more

Reminder to self--keep moving, and new dress for June graduation

Wednesday, September 17, 2014      5 comments

My reminder to myself today is to keep moving. I've been working in front of my computer for too many hours lately, and I need to pick up the pace if I'm going to keep making progress with my weight loss. The other thing I'm reminding myse... Read more
