Well, vacation's winding down. Daddy's home from vacation which means Mom's vacation is over.
Inspired by greatpanda, I actually went for a swim for the first time in years. It felt good! I wish I'd jumped in earlier during my vacation in... Read more
8/24/11: Day 52 and year in review
Every year on my birthday (I'm a little late this year) I look back on the past year and make so goals (or resolutions) for the upcoming year. This might be a little disorganized and all over the place, but that sums up the year pretty well.

It's time for the annual year in review, but I'm tired and am going to go to sleep. Didn't get much of my to-do list done today, but did have some fun.
I'm also a bit saddened tonight. I finally figured out why I haven't heard from a real... Read more

Just a quick note so I can get to bed at a reasonable time for a change...
Good day for fresh fruits; only went slightly above targets for calories (over by 9), carbs (over by 48...still need some work on this), and fiber (over by 13). Lots o... Read more

Hell hath frozen--I actually was within my ranges (not over, not under) for calories, fat, carbs, and protein! That rarely seems to happen, especially when I get carb-happy.
I've been thinking of my great aunt today...it's her birthday. S... Read more

I think I need to go find my book "meditations for women who do too much".... A comment Srhallin made on an earlier blog got me thinking.
My perception of me is that I'm lazy. But, taken from another perspective, it seems I'm always doing... Read more

The one good thing about going through old photos is you can see where you've been and how far you've come. I think this pic was when I was over 200. Yikes! No wonder I had trouble running and keeping up!

Rule #1, don't go grocery shopping when hungry. Well, I wasn't when I started. Did okay, did buy some soy ice cream sweetened with dehydrated cane syrup (close to natural, I hope; definitely more so than sugar, fructose, high fructose corn syr... Read more
8/13/11: Day 41
Still plodding along. I still can't believe I haven't given in to sweets or sodas yet! Of course, the burger and fries the other day weren't exactly a great choice. I was racing like a banshee from work to a CPR refresher a little over an hour a... Read more
8/10/11: Day 38
Well, I must be nuts! I just signed up for the 100+ crunches/day team. Trying to force myself to do something besides walking/jogging. I also need to start working on pull-ups if I want to make my goal of being able to do 3 by the end of the ... Read more

I think it's time to play with the mix and match re... Read more
8/7/11: Day 35
I literally did nothing but sleep all day. It felt good to not have to get up and hit the ground running, so to speak. I had some really weird dreams.
Yesterday I got to put some of my newly found stress management tricks to work. I could ... Read more

I think the Southerners have the air conditioner in hell working... I'm not sure what got into me, but I was actually organized and time efficient this morning on the first shift! ... Read more
8/3/11: Day 31
I made an interesting observation today...All of my problems are based on fear and dwelling on the past (trying to figure out what I need to learn from it so I can learn it and not repeat it). Many also seem to whittle themselves down to pride o... Read more
