2013 - Happy New Year

Tuesday, January 01, 2013      6 comments

My first year in my official retirement I've managed to pack on the pounds. Time to focus clearly and work hard at taking them off. I'm squishing into my size 7 jeans as a reminder of how much I need to eat healthy! They are quite uncomfor... Read more

Feeling like a bloated sow.

Tuesday, June 26, 2012      8 comments

I weighed on Friday morning. I was 139. Not that bad, but compared to 7 months ago it's significant and I feel every single pound. Especially this evening. My gut is bloated, my legs feel fat and when I sit my belly just hangs out. I keep t... Read more

Enjoying life, possibly a bit too much.

Monday, April 02, 2012      4 comments

To be more specific; hard cider and a decent gluten free beer, moose tracks ice cream, and community pot luck dinners! It gets out of hand pretty quickly and before you know it, boom there it is, weight gain! This week I'm focusing on ... Read more

New home & new routines. Happy in paradise!

Wednesday, February 29, 2012      6 comments

Hello to all my sparkpeople friends! I guess I've been a bit AWOL on Sparkpeople. About one month ago we packed up and moved to the Rocky Mountains and anyone who's ever moved across states knows what a crazy time that can be! I've purposef... Read more

Happy New Year!

Friday, January 06, 2012      4 comments

Hello, and happy new year to all my sparkpeeps! I've been absent for the last few weeks. We took a truckload of belongings to the Rockies and had a white Christmas there. Lots of snowshoeing, long walks, nachos, tamales and alcoholic cider,... Read more

A look back at progress!

Thursday, December 01, 2011      8 comments

I used the wonderful Sparkpeople program to take a look back at my calories as average weekly totals over the coarse of this year since I started back with sparkpeople. This is a lovely tool, and shows just how well I've done. Here is a pic... Read more

Last time I posted photos of myself I was exactly 10 pounds heavier. They were my UK vacation photos and I weighed 141. I took some photos yesterday in my skin tight cute levis size 7 jeans. I thought it was time to post my progress visuall... Read more

Thanksgiving plans

Tuesday, November 15, 2011      3 comments

Since our family is in the UK, it's just the 2 of us at Thanksgiving. This makes it easy for Willpower Woman to eat healthy during this famously gluttonous week in November! We roast a small organic chicken, have mashed potatoes with skin b... Read more

"Greedy Guts Girl" vs. "Willpower Woman"

Monday, November 14, 2011      4 comments

I'm going through the same thing that many of my spark friends are going through right now. I made a comment on GWG's blog this morning that perhaps Autumn is a hard time to lose weight because genetically our bodies want to store fat for the ... Read more

Update on graft site.

Tuesday, November 08, 2011      2 comments

I went to see my gum surgeon late yesterday and the good news to me was that I'd not busted a stitch. All was in tact, but the problem was that the graft site was bleeding internally (making a lovely pooled blood bruise on my back pallet) and a ... Read more

Is it Thanksgiving yet?

Monday, November 07, 2011      1 comments

Well, well. I had a gum surgery on Thursday which went real well. Apparently my bite was so off that my bottom teeth were just hammering the heck out of my front teeth, and they were wiggling alot, causing the bone to erode, and thus my gum on 2... Read more

I did my race on Sunday, since I had a benefit show on Saturday. This is the first race I've ever run in. I wondered how I would do, and you know what I totally surprised myself! I ran it in 31 minutes and 1 sec! I ran the virtual r... Read more

Fundraiser this weekend!

In September over 1400 families lost their homes to the wildfires here in central Texas. I know several of these families, and many of them had livestock and pets that are being housed temporarily at other locations. Hay is hard to come by... Read more
