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
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
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
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
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

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
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
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
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 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
Long weekend. May Run Weekend. GothDaughter is gone with GeekyGothBoy to stay at his parents, since they're out of town.
Who needs eyebrows anyway? *waggling eyebrows*
The weekend is looking good. :-D
If I don't post somewhere... Read more
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
