Missing

Thursday, May 01, 2014      0 comments

I left a burnt orange suitcase - hardcover, slightly battered - under the third table to the left of the Setters' room door at the Westwood Bar and Grille. I forget the name of the town but the wooden outline of the dog on the r... Read more

"In 10 sessions you'll feel the difference, in 20 sessions you'll see the difference, and in 30 sessions you'll have a different body" ~ Joseph Pilates So I'm going to try it. I did my first two "real" pilates sessions this week, one on Tue... Read more

Redefining failure

Sunday, April 22, 2012      0 comments

So I'm behind again. Better yet, I am behind always to a greater or lesser extent. I know that this because I have too much to do, not because I'm too lazy to do it. Therefore, I have decided to redefine failure for today. Today, I am not a... Read more

Sunday, April 15, 2012      2 comments

I was shocked to see it in my mailbox but there it was - an invitation to join the SparkPeople success stories private group. I filled out the initial form and I'm on the SparkTeam now. I haven't found time to dig up pictures of me at my heavies... Read more

Commitment

Monday, June 06, 2011      1 comments

I have not been a good Sparker recently. It happened slowly but its starting to spiral and effect my weight. So today is the day. I am committing to a seven day streak of entering my food. Yes, it is small. Yes, it is silly but small silly steps... Read more

Feeling better but getting bad news

Sunday, January 09, 2011      1 comments

Three Coach Nicole videos today: the one I missed yesterday, today's, and an extra 10-minute crunchless abs. I wasn't quite up to cardio but the strength training was okay now that I'm breathing better. Bad news from Florida where my grandm... Read more

Sicker than a dog

Well, my sweet baby girl gave me the upper respiratory nastiness and, as usual, it floored me but I had to go to work on Friday. That means by last night I was incapacitated. Although I'm feeling a bit better, I missed a lunch I was looking forw... Read more

What a mixed up day!

Thursday, January 06, 2011      0 comments

Before the day ever started today, it was a mess. The littles woke up late but I rustled them off to school. I have a cold but it isn't too bad so I took some DayQuil and headed to Mom's where I found out that Grams' boyfriend is having a triple... Read more

Here is what I need to do: 1. Finish the 28-day boot camp again. Today is day four for me. Yesterday, I did no cardio but two reps of Coach Nicole's day three video - upper body. I went to the gym and did 40 minutes on the elliptical this af... Read more

Deciding to thrive instead of survive

Monday, January 03, 2011      0 comments

It's the new year and once again I am still the same old me. Yes, I maintained my weight loss over the holidays, something for which I am incredibly grateful. I didn't get in as much exercise as I would have liked but today is a new day and a ne... Read more

Not letting anything stop me

Saturday, October 23, 2010      4 comments

Today I am merely overweight instead of obese. The scale has been saying 196 for about the last eight days but this morning when I weighed myself wearing shoes at the worst bloating day of the month and the scale still said 196, I believed it. I... Read more

So I don't forget

Saturday, August 14, 2010      0 comments

I'm at the end of day seven of the 28-day bootcamp. I know with the hectic nature of the beginning of term I'll forget everything so: I weighed 209.6 lbs when I started the bootcamp. I was hovering at border of an 18/16. I have no abs a... Read more

Everybody dying

Well, Uncle Loren was buried today. Uncle Bob is barely a month gone and Uncle Marty is probably permanently disabled both mentally and physically, although he is breathing and swallowing on his own now. It's been a bad summer for uncles all the... Read more
