I'll have to patch it

Tuesday, November 08, 2011      4 comments

Over the weekend, I decided to work on the quit smoking plan once again. My Guy & I have stopped smoking in the house, and going to the garage for a puff. This would be great, if he didn't start a fire in the woodstove before I got there for m... Read more

Ever have one of those weeks?

Thursday, October 27, 2011      2 comments

Well, today is one of those days that feels like a week, and it's not even 9am. Last night, I emailed a friend who recently lost her father to liver disease, and apparently I said something very wrong. I wake up to an email reply that basi... Read more

I think she moved out

Saturday, September 17, 2011      4 comments

Today is the day! StepDaughter and GGB have finally moved into their new home. I haven't been over yet, it's been a little (ok, a lot) chaotic, and My Guy in transit of load #2, which should be pretty much it. It's a start. It's not all ... Read more

You know you're doing something right when....

Tuesday, August 23, 2011      3 comments

Y'know how on this journey to a healthy lifestyle that good things happen sometimes along the way? It's true. On the weekend, I happened to saunter out of the bedroom with my birthday suit and a pair of panties, when My Guy walked by. "Yo... Read more

Camping Trips, Vacations, and What I Still Need to Learn

Monday, August 15, 2011      1 comments

Now that I'm back from vacation, Diet Burnout Recovery has finished. Just before I left, I was so sick & tired of everything, including Spark, that everything I did felt like a chore. So this year, when I took vacation time, I decided to step ... Read more

Ever wonder if there are real berries in that cereal?

Thursday, August 04, 2011      1 comments

I got this link from a friend. After watching the video, it only reinforces the idea to READ THE LABELS! Personally, I don't like buying cereals or yogurts or other products with fruit added in them, because I don't like them like that. ... Read more

Always be vigilant, because it never goes away

Monday, July 18, 2011      5 comments

Every now and again, I start to believe that I can beat this thing with food addiction. I go long long periods of time where I do great. I don't mean just stay within calorie range, work out until my innards hurt, but be in the right frame of ... Read more

So, I have 175lbs in my sights. Really, I do! I'm so excited!! I haven't seen these numbers since my teens, and that's been at least 25 years! I finally decided to treat myself when I get to 175, and that treat would be a pedicure. I'm ... Read more

It's not getting any easier, in case you're wondering

Sunday, July 10, 2011      1 comments

So next weekend is when StepDaughter is due to move out, again. This is getting hard on the head, because I'm not convinced they'll be able to make a decent go of it, especially where she isn't/doesn't work. The anxiety level is palpable. ... Read more

Yes, I'm the Mean StepMother

Tuesday, June 21, 2011      7 comments

Last night was the last straw. StepDaughter has become less and less respectful of our house and habitants in the last 2 weeks, and last night she kept me awake for nearly 2 hours in the middle of the night. She was getting ready to have GGB p... Read more

Name change

Wednesday, June 01, 2011      3 comments

As I gripe and whine about GothDaughter's trials and tribulations while she lives with us, I've come to realize that she's not Goth at all. If anything, she's a vampire, with the hours she keeps, not the lifestyle. So, from this point onwa... Read more

What bums me out

Wednesday, May 25, 2011      9 comments

What bums me out is when I finally get back on track after having a "big chest cold" for 2 weeks, it takes nearly a month to get muscles up to speed again, and actually see weight loss. What bums me out is when I try a different workout DVD... Read more

Just keep me away from the junk food & the likker

Thursday, May 19, 2011      3 comments

Today, I'm having great difficulty containing my anger towards GothDaughter. I've been very patient for the last 2 weeks, purposefully taking a step back when I feel the need to shout or yell at her, trying to put a positive spin on it. But wh... Read more
