I haven't been to the gym in 12 days. There is a huge explanation for it. On Thursday Nov 1, while I was attending an all day training seminar an hour north of where I live, my husband was talking on the phone to his mother, who lives 2 hours... Read more

Ugh! I hate digital scales. A couple years ago we bought one and it seemed to do ok, until it started giving us wonky numbers (we'd step on, step off and back on again, and the weight would be like 4 or 6 pounds different) so we changed the b... Read more

Lots of fun last night at a friend's halloween party. Lots of fun means a little bit of alcohol and some junk food, but I tried to eat more of the healthier foods and less of the sweets. I had some chili and some mac and cheese, a few vegg... Read more

So happy! I was feeling tired and rundown today at the end of my work day. All I wanted to do was crawl into bed and sleep. But as I was driving home (half hour commute on a good day, 45 minutes on a bad one) I recalled something I had ... Read more

So things sort of fell apart. I just got lazy and fell into too many bad habits. Spending way too much time in front of the tv or computer and eating too much junk. I'm almost back up to my highest weight ever, which is not a fun place to ... Read more
