New Year's resolution - be healthy. Cliche, but necessary!
Apparently I haven't had a blog entry since 2012. Wow! I think I'm going to try to make it a point to put SOMETHING down every day until my birthday in March.
I've been sick since two days after Thanksgiving. Sick enough to miss Christ... Read more
I believe I can't fly...
I just posted to my blog, but I thought that if I am not allowed to observe the changes in my pounds, I should list my observations about my body. The first one to come to mind is my arms. I used to have so much fat dangling down when I raised... Read more
One week, no scale...
I'm a little nervous today. I have gone six days without weighing myself, which I think is a personal record. I've been working hard, eating right, and by all means, I should be making progress, but I have NO idea of where I stand. My bootcam... Read more
Party and burn!
We had a great weekend at the beach. I had some chicken ready for the grill, pasta salad (which I can't eat since I'm gluten free), fruit, veggies and all kinds of good stuff. Being gluten free, I was able to pass on all of the cookies and cup... Read more
It's actually fun to read back on some of my past posts, so here's another to add to my SparkPeople history. I was up to 228 in March (ugh, scary) and I worked myself back down to about 218 by mid April when tax season ended and I could finally... Read more
On the road again...
The road to recovery that is. In December I had Tommy John surgery. If you don't know what that is, you're definitely not alone. Basically it's ligament replacement in your elbow (they use a tendon from your wrist) that very few people have t... Read more
Maybe they ARE all idiots...
You always hear that all men are idiots. I would always snicker because I had the exception to the rule. My husband is loving, supportive, caring and wonderful. We rarely fight and we enjoy each other's company so much that we try to go off o... Read more
Wow, really? Almost a year???!!!
I guess it's been a while since I last blogged. In that time I've been to Hawaii, added a year on to each of my kids' ages, been through three surgeries. Oh... and gained weight.
Yep, I'm back. 23 pounds heavier than I was at my lightest... Read more
Rapid weight gain can be a good thing!
Before last night, I wouldn't think it was true. But after sitting with my son for hours at Children's Hospital after a long struggle with flu like symptoms and watching him nearly pass out several times in their waiting room, I realized that, ... Read more
I think I can I think I can I think I can...
Man these days are tough! Last week I was trucking through like a woman on a mission. I had boneless skinless chicken breasts just about every night for dinner with some steamed veggies. I got the salad bar down to a science at lunch. It tas... Read more
The greatest weekend ever?
Hubby and I had a 'stay-cation' in San Francisco over the weekend. We got a hotel room right by Fisherman's Wharf and went to the museums on Saturday.
What actually drew us into the city was something called Dine About Town. Fine dining... Read more
70 pounds down and mourning the loss...
... of my butt. Getting in the shower this morning, I glanced over to the mirror and saw it. Or the lack of it. I saw where it used to be. Horrified, I checked in with hubby. Surely he must have noticed! When I asked, he replied, "Yeah, it... Read more
Looking to break the next barrier!
180's here I come!!!
I've been sick for almost four weeks (everybody go out and get your flu shots... I wish I did!), so I haven't been too concerned with keeping up with my food entries and I've been doing zero exercise, but I barely bac... Read more
Turning the corner
I drag myself out of bed at 5:30 a.m. twice a week to head over to a public indoor swimming pool. I have to go at 5:30 because they open at 6 and I have to get home to wake the kids up and get them moving as close to 7 as possible.
This ... Read more
Call me fat, but don't call me out of shape!!!
So yesterday I decided to go see a doctor on the recommendation of a couple other Sparkers. When working out on Sunday I got really dizzy, nauseous, clammy, and started having heart palpitations. We thought it was a mixture of heat exhaustion ... Read more
