I have now lost just over seven pounds in five days. I know it isn't something I can expect to have happen every week. It may all be water weight. But I DO NOT CARE! It has given me the boost I need. My goal seems a bit more possible now. ... Read more

Today I actually did pretty well. I attended two (2!) bbqs and managed not to gorge myself. I just had a little taste of everything. I even managed to only have a few spoonfuls of homemade ice cream. I've been stressed and depressed the ... Read more

So, the 5K was yesterday. It was great. A lot harder than the last one tho. This one had A LOT of hills. And I was pushing a stroller. Whew! I did manage to shave 2 1/2 minutes off of my time. I feel great. A bit sore, but great. My hus... Read more

I really really really need to start going to bed early. I just wish I could. Not only is it not helping my weight loss goals or depression; I am wanting all this crap being sold on the infomercials. Man, I want these P90X videos. They look ... Read more

So, I've been having a very fun weekend. A little too much fun. Too much fun in the form of donuts, muffins, pasta, and cookies. Bad, bad, bad. It started out innocently enough. My inlaws are visiting and my sister inlaw has never had... Read more

Today was insane. I didn't go to the gym. And I am totally not accepting responsibility for that. It normally takes me 30 minutes to drive there. Today it took me 80 minutes to get half way. Insane holiday weekend traffic. I couldn't belie... Read more
