Help me Sabotage my Self-Sabotage!!!
Man did I have a great week last week! I started Boot Camp, got in all of my cardio and videos (even with my excruciatingly slow country internet service). I tracked my food better than I've done in months. I lost 3 pounds!!! WOO HOO!!

being honest about why I am still overweight
I just read a blog about being afraid to lose weight. The author was trying to assess why she had lingering doubts about whether she'll lose the weight and the "what now?" that comes with reaching the goal weight. So, while we're being honest,... Read more
Cut up the Card!
Are you familiar with Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University? He strongly advocates cutting up credit cards as a way to manage debt. Well, this week I cut up a couple of different cards: my "Finish Everything in the Bag Culb" card, and my "... Read more
For some reason I am in a position of leadership in every organization that I am involved in, which means I have at least one additional meeting each month (3 in one case, 4 in another). It is stressing me out and wearing me down. At work, I h... Read more
Is down a dress size!!
Almost. Does it count that the dress was jersey knit and that the sewn in bra wasn't quite in the right place? I didn't think so either. Yesterday I found myself trying on a formal for a charity ball that I am chairing in the spring and it i... Read more
Running around like a chicken...
with her head cut off! It is stressing me out that I have to pack so many chores and errands into one day instead of 5 since I have so heinously over-committed myself. DH even fussed me on my way out the door this morning for being so "Eh!" D... Read more
Stress Journal -- Day 5 -- What do you stand for?
I kind of fell of the journal wagon mid week, but am getting back on today. I really thought I was handling stress pretty well until my husband asked a few minutes ago, "What the heck is wrong with you today?" The only answer I could provide i... Read more
SJ day 4
So, I had an appointment with my physician today to review some lab work that I recently had done for life insurance. The report indicated that while most of my numbers were within acceptable limites, some were beginning to indicate diabetes. ... Read more
Day 3, Monday, back at work. Typical day with typical headaches. Deepbreathing helped, but I think the fact that I was too tired to over-react was the lynchpin in today's success. Plan to get a good night's sleep and see how I do tomorrow!... Read more
Stress Journal -- Day 2
It is probably a little chicken to write about how I am handling stress today when it is barely 7 AM, but I have to say, so far, so good!!!

Stress Journal -- Day 1
So, I joined the Stress Busting challenge after being on the verge of melting down EVERY DAY this week. Thank God for my DH who can act as a calm voice of reason in the torrent I have turned my life into. Long story short, I have said "yes" to... Read more
Sad ... and eating
Of course, life is not always easy, but it seems that when one area is not going well, at least another is. Kind of like jumping with a friend on a trampoline, one has to stay down so the other can jump higher. Unlike that fun, fun pasttime, t... Read more
Ugh! Just when I was starting to feel thin, I changed out of my work clothes and into my exercise clothes to see my most recently departed fat roll had made a comeback complete with dimply cellulite texutre. Why is it that the week I decide to... Read more
OMG I MET A FITNESS GOAL!!!!!!!!
In a week where I felt like a total SLUG (thank you allergies and migraine headaches), I somehow managed to meet my Minutes of Exercise objective for the week!! While I did not make my calories or number of sessions this week (600/900 calories,... Read more
So my action step for today is to write in my blog about a trouble goal that I am having. I guess I would have to identify exercising as my trouble spot. I just cannot for the life of me get motivated to exercise. I have tried sleeping in my ... Read more
