TheBrains Plow Through July
Tuesday, July 19, 2016      12 comments

Thought I'd check in with TheBrains today to see how they're doing. The months leading up to July were so stressful, so unhappy, so frustrating that all of me (us) just wanted to dig a hole and crawl into it. It culminated on July 4th with a dre... Read more

It Gets Better - TheBrains Deal With Stress
Sunday, June 12, 2016      13 comments

At least, I hope it does. Memorial Day weekend I had a mini meltdown and that sort of spilled over into the greater household. A tough week followed and last weekend wasn't really any easier. I felt like a Hank Williams song. https:... Read more

I've started at least a dozen blog posts and petered out writing them in May - and here it is, almost the very last day with nothing to show for a month of Mayness. Well. Okay. I'm gonna cut myself some slack for my reticence because it has been... Read more

Derailed - TheBrains bump into a cardio pusher
Tuesday, April 26, 2016      10 comments

Life happens. We hear this phrase all the time. We're not robots. We're not computers. Birthdays, holidays, anniversaries come. And then there are the pushers. The "Just One Bite-ers" - people who want you to do what they want you to do and when... Read more

It was hard to get back to werk after a week of girly fun, sugar, and retail therapy but TheBrains and I did pull ourselves together and made some progress. We have about 6 deadlines looming and we're all a little discomfited at the thought that... Read more
So. Do You Have A Plan? - confession time with TheBrains
Monday, April 11, 2016      9 comments

I know. It's been very quiet in this corner. The main reason for the silence is that someone I care about has a secret - a story that's not mine to tell. I'm really afraid I'll blab it somewhere - so I've been quiet about everything just so I do... Read more
Thoughts (And Feelings) On Reaching A Maintenance Anniversary

Seems like I've been workin' on my weight issues all my life. That's not exactly true, of course. When I was a newborn I had Other Things to Deal With and in fact, I was proudly conscious of my small waist as old as 7 or 8 - because even back in... Read more

Hmmm. It's been a while since I've blogged and even here at home TheBrains have been strangely silent. We've been unnaturally uncreative all winter and even the joy of our modest successes - weight loss - new furniture - hasn't seemed to stir th... Read more

I'm on day 5 of the 21-Day Tame Your Sweet Tooth Challenge. I have always liked sweets and as a kid I was a sugar addict - I would eat spoons of sugar on white bread and it wasn't sweet enough. I never passed up an opportunity to spend my money ... Read more
