2013 - here I come!
Thursday, January 03, 2013      3 comments

OK! I took my measurements (horror), snapped my before photo (hatred & self-loathing), went to a Vinyasa Level 1 yoga class (torture) and am now recording my nibbles via WW (starving). But on the up side, my eye is still on the prize today - d... Read more

Great to be back to SP after two years! New house, new grandbaby who is now 2 years old, finished school, found a new dog along with lots of new weight (thank you menopause). That's okay .... at least I'm here now and instead of kicking myself... Read more

We're having a Biggest Loser competition at work & I'm on a team of 4 (me & three guys who will invariably lose a lot compared to me!) . We start this week with our first weigh in on 1/25 - it ends in mid-March. This is going to be a tough... Read more

I went for a great 4 mile walk this morning with my friend Eleanor. It was 41 degrees here in Florida when we left and it was so invigorating. We stopped at Starbucks for non-fat cafe americano's with Splenda. It feels so good to be moving li... Read more

Like I said one year ago today. How pathetic is that?! This time I must change.... Read more
New Start
Thursday, January 01, 2009      4 comments

I am so frustrated that I have a New Years Resolution to lose weight ONCE AGAIN. To make things worse I am now at the heaviest weight I've ever been at before. I don't even want to go outside of the house - nothing fits right and I really don'... Read more
Countdown to Surgery
Sunday, September 21, 2008      6 comments

Thanks to all of you for stopping by & encouraging me during the past month or so. :) My CA-125 test returned normal so no signs of ovarian cancer and my doctor is going to watch the cysts for a few months to see what happens. In the mean... Read more

I finally got in to the doctor and she sent me for tests (heavy and long periods) to see if I'm a candidate for endometrial ablation. I went for a pelvic ultrasound on Friday and I'm scheduled for a biopsy (I assume of the uterine wall) for thi... Read more
I Heart Alaska

The wedding was great and everyone had a really good time. The honeymoon was fantastic! I LOVE Alaska. We flew to Vancouver & boarded the Carnival Spirit and sailed through the Inside Passage. We saw lots of whales! Our first s... Read more
Pink Dress
Tuesday, June 03, 2008      6 comments

I bought this pink dress at Ann Taylor Loft last weekend to wear on the cruise - if I can drop at least 10 lbs. I'd feel a whole lot better in it and I need to apparently buy a bra that will lift the girls up! This is not my norm - I'm a navy, ... Read more
Emotionally Spent
Thursday, April 10, 2008      18 comments

Today I have an appointment at 4:30 to put Bailey down (I'm bawling as I type!). She has been such a big part of me - being handicapped, she and I have really bonded because she has needed me so much this past year. I don't go anywhere in the ... Read more
Proctor & Gamble
Thursday, February 21, 2008      2 comments

This is an actual letter from an Austin woman sent to Proctor and Gamble regarding their feminine products. She really gets rolling after the first paragraph. It's PC Magazine's 2007 editors' choice for best webmail-award-winning letter.* D... Read more
Business Trip Challenges - OKC

I'm leaving Tuesday morning for Oklahoma City for 3 days. The hotel has a great breakfast (I've stayed there before) - with fruit & an omelet bar and they do have a fitness room so I'll pack workout clothes, too. Lunches will be brought in ... Read more
Recumbent Bike
Saturday, January 26, 2008      2 comments

When my daughter Kayleigh & her husband moved to Germany, she took the contents of her entire bedroom with her. It looked so lonely in there so I turned it into an exercise room! There's this one green accent wall and the remaining walls a... Read more
18-0 & Going to the Show!
Sunday, January 20, 2008      0 comments

So glad to see the Patriots make it all the way to the big game undefeated! And the only snacking I did during the game was my pre-measured ounce of Tabasco peanuts! The Packers/Giants game was a real shocker for me. That 4th quarter and ... Read more
