Oh what a beautiful morning...

Thursday, November 03, 2011      6 comments

Earlier this morning I wrote a blog about how darn early 5am is! Phew! But I couldn't post it. I'm back from my swim - I did 30 minutes. I had been doing 20 minute swims for a while, but I decided to up the time. Ten minutes more ... Read more

NO-excuses NO-vember

Tuesday, November 01, 2011      10 comments

My biggest excuse (hahah - *biggest*, and I am busting out of my pants) as of late was that Brad was working all the time and it didn't matter if all I ate was Popeye's and Chinese take-out. Well, that excuse doesn't hold water in November. Br... Read more

So it's the end of the month. In October I acknowledged that I gained some weight and stopped blaming it on my clothes shrinking. I also got my honey back - he's not working right now, and it's wonderful. He's taking care of me, taking care o... Read more

This week I will: Drink all my water every day. Go to the gym before school, even if it means I have to go again after school to make it to yoga or stretch. Track/write down all my food. Those treats at school add up! Treat myself ki... Read more

It's a Fat Day.

Thursday, October 27, 2011      6 comments

So over the summer and the fall, I've put on about 5-10 pounds (depending on the day). It doesn't sound *so* bad, but it's just enough to make my pants uncomfortable, my self-esteem much lower, and my mood pretty crappy. Especially today. I p... Read more

I have a nice variety of workouts planned this week. Back to yoga and stretch class, and I'll keep going with the ST, running, and swimming. Yesterday morning honey and I drove out to a really neat place called Boulder Field (if you are northe... Read more

It's time for my morning swim. I think it's time for me to add on another day or two of working out each week. I also think it's time for me to hide the scale for a little bit. I know I know I know that weight doesn't just fall off when you s... Read more

No more lies!!!

Friday, October 14, 2011      13 comments

I keep telling myself some things that just aren't true. And those little lies are why I gained back about eight pounds and why I'm so uncomfortable in my pants. - I run, so I can eat what I want. Truth is, I haven't run regularly since, ... Read more

One strange birthday wish...

Monday, October 03, 2011      9 comments

So my very strange birthday wish was that my husband get fired. Yes, I know it's a terrible thing to think, but he has been working almost 70 hours a week for over a year. It's ridiculous. Tonight he calls me around 5:00 and says "I'm on... Read more

So I didn't get an interview at Sesame Street. :( That's the bummer news. But what's kind of funny is that I'm not totally devastated like I thought I might be. I knew it was a total long shot, but I went for it anyway. And I'm rea... Read more

Wednesday, September 28, 2011      10 comments

Being in a funk is a funny thing. It feels like there is never going to be an end to it. Everything is sad, constant exhaustion, don't feel like doing ANYthing... but then - something happens and the funk starts to lift. Sometimes it's all at... Read more
