Too much rain :(
North Georgia is getting socked with rain! Not as much as a lot of people, but we are experiencing some flooding and it's pouring right now!
I ran outside on Thursday, but it was very humid! I took DD#1 to work on Friday and DD#2 and I ... Read more
It was one of those days :(
I don't know what happened to me yesterday. In retrospect, it was definitely one of those days where I can say, "no wonder I was overweight"!.
I started the day out good. I had an egg/veggie omlette for breakfast (made sure to buy eggs We... Read more
Lost a little - more room to "wiggle"!
I weighed this morning and I actually lost 1.4 lbs. I didn't think I would gain, but I thought I would pretty much stay the same. I'm thrilled with the loss and am now 1.8 lbs. below my goal weight, so I have a little more room to wiggle!

Back from vacation!
I'm back at my desk at work after a week of vacation. I enjoyed the time off, but it's nice to get back to "routine"! I was very active, but as usual, when I'm off routine, so is my "eating".
We spent Memorial Day at my sister's house. S... Read more
Stayed the Same & May Goals
I weighed this morning and stayed the same. I'm below my goal weight, but still want to have that 2 lbs. for "wiggle room" (May goal). I was a little disappointed since I'm still eating in "weight loss" mode, but it's all good!
I also ha... Read more
Wrong time on 5K Results :(
Saturday was the 5K at my church. I didn't feel quite ready for it since my running has been a little sporadic. I only ran 2 times last week and struggled to get in 3.1 miles (running). I ran the last time on Wednesday and my time was 41 mins... Read more
I have the 5K tomorrow at my church. I'd like to say I'm ready to go, but the last couple of weeks have been pretty hectic (more so than normal), so my running has suffered. I ran last Friday and it was 60 degrees and cloudy. DH and I ran on ... Read more
I got a Sparkmail from TinaJane76 (who is a team leader for the At Goal and Maintaining and Transiting to Maintenance team - whew long name) who asked if it would be ok to feature my recent "Back to Goal" blog. I said sure, why not!
I us... Read more
I weighed myself this morning (Wednesday is my "official" weigh in day). I stayed the same as last week. I wasn't disappointed since I did have a pretty "off" day on Sunday. But, I found myself playing a "scale game". I moved the scale aroun... Read more
Too much sugar!
I've been eating "low carb" for about 6 weeks now, and worked back in 1 grain & 1 fruit serving a day about 2 weeks ago. I haven't had any "sweets" except for sugar free pudding/jello in over 6 weeks.
I had a great Mother's Day! DD#2 ma... Read more
Too much grass!!
I spent 2 1/2 hours yesterday and about 1 1/2 hours on Wednesday cutting grass. I mainly used the riding lawn mower, but I did a little "pushing" and raking. DH was "off" Wednesday & Thursday, but did a side job, so he worked late both nights.... Read more
Although I'm back at goal, I still want to loose the final 2 "wiggle room" lbs. I weighed in this morning and I lost .4 lbs., so now I have some "wiggle room".
I finished my 4th week of "low carb" eating. In 4 weeks, I have lost 6.8 lbs.... Read more
Against the Wind
running against the wind (an old Bob Seger song for all you "kids"). DD#2 and I went running last night. DH, DD#1&3 stayed home to work on the duck pen. The 4 ducks are now officially out of the basement and in a new pen - they are very cute,... Read more
Back to Goal!
I received a bunch of congratulations at the end of March for "maintaining" for 2 years. Technically I was still maintaining, but I was still 3 lbs. over goal. At the end of January I was about 11 lbs over goal, so I started an aggressive camp... Read more
Rain, rain go away . . .
I know we're not having as much rain here in North Georgia like a lot of places, but we've been getting a lot. The good news is we're no longer in a drought, the bad news is now we have flooding and our grass is growing too fast (plus it cuts d... Read more
