I love October. It's fall, it's my birthday month, and it's time to eat and drink pumpkin goodness. This month I am going to focus a bit more on weight-loss. There is a challenge starting at my gym on 10/10 - we have 10 weeks to lose 10 p... Read more

Thank goodness for you!

Bumpy lumpy frumpy dumpy

Tuesday, September 28, 2010      7 comments

Four very good words to describe how I am starting to feel. Ugh. Last week's excuse - I had a nasty cold (which was true) Yesterday's excuse - the power went out and I *had* (HA!) to go out to dinner with a friend instead of doing a workout... Read more

I am super tired this morning. It's probably a combination of the return to caffeinated coffee over the weekend and the wine I had with dinner last night... but my sleep was NOT good. I woke up this morning after hitting the snooze three times... Read more

What I've learned

Friday, September 24, 2010      11 comments

Holy moly four days of no coffee seems like an eternity. I decided to try this little experiment this week because I just wasn't feeling it with coffee. Went with the tea. So what I've learned: - I slept MUCH better with no coffee in the... Read more

Day 4

Thursday, September 23, 2010      4 comments

I can't believe I've gone all week without coffee. Since I've started drinking tea in the morning, I have been sleeping much better. When my honey comes home late from work, I hardly even wake up anymore. I haven't been hitting the snooze but... Read more

More rest...

Tuesday, September 21, 2010      5 comments

Still sick. I've gone through more tissues than ever. Bleh. Listened to my body and didn't go to the gym tonight. Looks like it's turning into a rest week... which is not necessarily a bad thing. Sleeping in tomorrow morning - need as ... Read more

Rest Day #2 - hooray!

Monday, September 20, 2010      5 comments

I usually don't take two days in a row off from working out, but my body was begging me. And I'm glad I listened to it. Yesterday was a nice sleepy and lazy day with my honey, and my nose is so stuffy today that I would look like a total weird... Read more

Sunday's To-Dos did not get done.

Sunday, September 19, 2010      4 comments

Woke up today and felt worse than yesterday... so I took it easy. I did manage to freeze some squash, which was a big thing. Took my car to get its 100K mile work done, watched some football (the Eagles barely eked it out today) and then the l... Read more

Less Dumpy

Saturday, September 18, 2010      5 comments

So I was starting to feel a little more lumpy and bumpy than usual, and I think it had a lot to do with a lack of pushing myself during my workouts. It was starting to get into a *bad* routine, where I was too comfortable with the weights I was... Read more

100 Things

Thursday, September 16, 2010      6 comments

This one looked like fun and I don't have much to blog about tonight... tomorrow maybe. 1. Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed? Closed, now that there are curtains over the doors. The previous owner of our house put in mirr... Read more

Only 7:15 and already a good choice!

Wednesday, September 15, 2010      10 comments

My alarm went off this morning at 5:02. Bleh. Wednesday is an early gym day, and today I really didn't want to go. So I hit snooze. But I didn't go back to sleep... instead, I thought about not going to the gym. I would have been awake anyw... Read more

9/14 Accountability

Tuesday, September 14, 2010      4 comments

Let's try again... cereal is hidden away, I have dinner planned, and my snacks are planned out as well. Today: - lots and lots and lots of water. I haven't been getting enough water lately, and I keep thinking I'm hungry even when I'm no... Read more

Solving problems the elementary way...

Monday, September 13, 2010      1 comments

A behavior strategy for elementary kids is to have them fill out a paper explaining what the problem behavior was, how they could have handled it differently, etc. The idea is to have them think about what they did and how the situation can be ... Read more

9/13 Accountability

Monday, September 13, 2010      6 comments

I can't believe we're in the teens of September already... Today: - drink tons of water - stick to the eating plan - work hard and smart at the gym - make phone calls I need to make - take pants to drycleaners to be shortened ... Read more
