Back and well rested!

Monday, July 09, 2012      6 comments

Well, I"m back from vacation! I had a really great time. I didn't spark much at all, though; and I really had very little opportunity to eat healthy. At the end, I kinda threw caution to the wind. I'm a little disappointed in myself, but... Read more

Afraid of the bathing suit?

Friday, July 06, 2012      16 comments

Are you afraid of your bathing suit? I think for the vast majority of us, our bathing suits are a major worry zone. It's a high-stress purchase, and many of us flat out refuse. Today, I went to the beach. And I want to tell you somet... Read more

Vacation starts tomorrow!

Tuesday, July 03, 2012      5 comments

Tomorrow, my family is going on a much needed vacation tomorrow. We're going to a neighboring state, and will be staying with a friend (instead of a hotel) who lives an hour or so away from the beach. Our plans? Hit the beach. Play some v... Read more

When people ask "how did you do it?"

Monday, July 02, 2012      9 comments

Now that I'm over the 20 lbs lost mark, it's starting to get pretty noticeable. Plus, I'm always talking about it. ;) Invariably, though, it happens. You know the question... any of us who talk about our weight loss get it. "How did you d... Read more

Thanks, guys!

Just an update. He's been released, and everything's okay. Probably a combination of heat exhaustion and quitting smoking. Thanks for all your kind words and prayers!... Read more

Please pray for my husband

Saturday, June 30, 2012      20 comments

It's probably going to end up being nothing; this isn't the first time something like this has happened. But some good prayers won't hurt. My husband's been complaining of chest pain and numbness in his left arm and both hands for about a ... Read more

Why the drama?

Friday, June 29, 2012      7 comments

I don't think I will understand adults who gossip. A good "friend" of my husband's got caught in the act last night. They were having a little boys' night out at the bar, and my husband had gone in to get another drink. He came back to o... Read more

So annoyed

Thursday, June 28, 2012      10 comments

I slept in this morning, and didn't go to the gym. At this rate, I'm going to have to adjust my fitness goals to cut calories... which is going to suck, because while I'm sorta managing to stay close to my range, if I get cut again, I'm no... Read more

I can see the strength in me!

Wednesday, June 27, 2012      10 comments

Part of my weight loss journey has been the discovery that I love to lift weights. It makes me feel so powerful; I don't bother with those stupid little 2 and 5 lb girlie weights (although I do own a single purple 5 lb hand weight, I don't use i... Read more

What do you wear to workout in?

Tuesday, June 26, 2012      7 comments

Fitness clothes are the first kind of clothes I've ever had an addiction to. I'm not a girly girl; I don't do shoes, I don't do makeup... I just don't care. Well, used to not care, anyway. As I've gotten older, I have started to care, a little. ... Read more

Sneaking in exercise

Monday, June 25, 2012      2 comments

I'm getting better at sneaking in exercise. In my pursuit of inefficiency, I've declare that anytime we go to the convenience store down the street, or CVS, or the dollar store, or Fred's... we will walk, unless there is an extenuating circumsta... Read more

Ow. My abs. Stop showing off!

Sunday, June 24, 2012      4 comments

Okay, so yesterday I finally managed to convince one of my friends to join me at the gym. She's an old friend (we've been hanging out since high school) and she and her husband both want to join a gym. So I grabbed a guest pass, and took her alo... Read more

Change your way of thinking

Friday, June 22, 2012      2 comments

It's funny how we get ourselves into a rut. We think about doing things one way not because it's the best way, but because it's what we're used to. Right now, it's 82 degrees in my house. It's 90 something outside. I wanted to go for a run... Read more

When perfection isn't

Wednesday, June 20, 2012      2 comments

So, this has been my week of not perfection. Okay, two weeks. I knew the summer was going to be a challenge; I just didn't expect it to be THIS challenging. I was determined that nothing was going to get in the way of my routine, and... Read more

If nothing changes? Nothing changes.

I've mentioned my aunt before; she's an amazing lady, smart, successful, and healthy. She made a conscious decision some years ago to get well and truly healthy, and for the most part, she does a damn fine job of it. She's the source of my ... Read more
