A real change in tactics
Yes, I know I've said that I need to look back at what I'm doing lately and change it, so I see results.
And that's why I need to change my tactics just a little bit while I quit smoking.
I'm not as frustrated as I had been, though I s... Read more
Just hand over the Midol, and no one gets hurt.
No, it's not as bad as the title sounds, but I am agitated today. It's like impatience and irritation and anxiety all rolled into one.
And I'm about to start a Whining blog. Get some Cheez before reading on. :-P
So, I've been doing ... Read more
One less today
Ok, so I managed to skip one morning cigarette today. Tomorrow, I'll cut out the afternoon break one.
I need stuff to do at home so my fingers stay busy.
I wonder what My Guy has planned for tonight... *snicker*... Read more
That was an eye-opener
So, amid all the other healthy lifestyle stuff I'm doing, it's now time to quit smoking, too. This past weekend, My Guy held off pretty good, he only smoked a couple sticks the whole weekend. However, I realized how much *I* smoke on the weeke... Read more
Today started off ok.....
Well, today started off on a good note, but it's getting more and more sour as the workday wears on.
Yes, My Guy & I bought a pellet stove yesterday, and it will be installed by the end of the month. At least it's not the company's busy ti... Read more
Some of the things I want to, and probably should, do
Since Christmas, I've lost and regained and relost the same 7 lbs. I struggled a lot until the end of March with weekend eating, and it's only been in the last month or so that I've actually enjoyed getting some exercise and fresh air.
So,... Read more
I wasn't mad, just like I promised
In Tuesday's blog, I wrote about the scales. Yesterday's weigh-in brought me just above 200lbs. I knew it was coming, and I was ok with it.
The Bloated Cow sensations I had all day were as good of proof that it wouldn't last more than a c... Read more
I promise, I won't be mad at the scales tomorrow
I love long weekends. Unfortunately, my hips & belly don't. :-D
We had a lot of fun on the long weekend just passed. I sat in the screen tent with My Guy for several hours yesterday, we went mudding on the logging roads by our place, and... Read more
When did I become excited about going outdoors??
Earlier this week, My Guy brought home 2 bicycles he found near a dumpster. There's nothing wrong with them, other than needing oil jobs. I haven't ridden a bike in YEARS!! But as soon as I saw the smaller & larger frames, I really hoped they... Read more
Aw, c'mon Scales.... move DOWN!!
The landscaping continues, my cardio minutes and cals burned increase, and other than PMS/TOM and the Nutella incidents, my food intake is pretty good lately.
So, why aren't the scales going down??
It has to be muscle. I mean, I burne... Read more
Danger in a bottle
I've struggled with this since I bought the damn stuff, and now I'm paying for it. I can't say no to it if I see it on the shelf or the cupboard, it's that much stronger than me.
And it's not booze.
*sigh... Read more
Mondays are like going to confessions
One of these days, I'll get a handle on weekend eating. I have to. Otherwise, I won't make any progress.
Although Friday nights are tough, I usually set aside enough calories to have a great evening snack, and I'm usually ok. Saturdays a... Read more
Forecast: Sunny skies, heavy rocks and sore muscles
It got to 20C today, just a slight breeze in the air, just what I needed to get out and do some landscaping. Remember the big rock I dug out the other day? It's still there. I haven't figured out how to "gain a mechanical advantage" over the ... Read more
Just a blah moment....
I know I'm doing well with the healthy lifestyle, that's evident by my ability to stay under 200lbs since Christmas. But that was 4 months ago, and I'm still stuck at the same 5lb range since the holidays. I'll admit I had a hard time in Janua... Read more
Well, it's been a week....
Well, it's been an interesting week, to say the least! The meeting at work to decide the fate of Hummingbird came & went, and apparently we're keeping the software, and we're going to throw more good money at it to hopefully fix it. I think that... Read more
