Okay, so that's probably not even a word. Unlike its counterpart disestablishmentarianism which we learned in school when learning about the arms race. Or whatever. But what this has to do with is, once again, choices. Around the new... Read more

These thoughts have been mulling about in my brain for a couple days, so I'm going to try to organize them here. There's really nothing to complain about when it comes to health and fitness. This came to mind when one of my main mentors, S... Read more
Shadowing Stacey: Unexpected Deliciousness
Wednesday, May 20, 2015      0 comments

First, I want to say that after some thinking, I totally subscribe to Mike Mullins (of Mike at 90%) theory that there are no "re-starts," "re-boots," or "Versions 2.0" or such that people say when they get off track and get back on. It's just a... Read more

I compulsively overeat. Again, I don't have a "story" per se that can't be summed up in that sentence. I compulsively overeat, and I did so as recently as 1:00 a.m. today. I haven't plumbed the psychological depths that Stacey recommends... Read more

This will probably be all over the place because my thoughts aren't organized yet - I'll come back and edit at some point. But if you're reading this, chances are, Stacey Morris has been a big inspiration to you. She certainly has been for me.... Read more

I realized I hadn't updated here in a while - am still plugging away at my health and fitness efforts, having discovered that my weight dropped more rapidly when I added ddpyoga on top of the cardio I was doing, and am back in a Couch Potato to ... Read more

Today, I hit a weight loss goal that I had set for next Tuesday -- yay for hitting it a couple days in advance, and now to bust through it next week. My next goal is really just another 4 1/2 pounds before I leave for Mexico - easily do-able. ... Read more

So I have this co-worker who started running and getting fit a few years before I even thought about it. He's now a serious runner, marathons, the whole bit. The one who told me about the fish oil capsules. At the time when he started, I had ... Read more

So I had a 4 - 5 month streak where I lost weight at a healthy pace starting last fall. I adopted great, consistent habits, felt great, and dropped more than 20 pounds at one point (I'm a little above that now, so I took my Lost 20 Pounds troph... Read more

LDRICHEL wrote a blog entry on "the best laid plans" and how your plans can change with circumstances, and some of it reminded me of a valuable lesson I learned way too late in life (but am glad I have it to live by and teach my daughter now!) ... Read more
Energized at the Beginning of a New Month
Sunday, December 02, 2012      0 comments

Yay, I love turning calendar pages. I try not to associate it with my child getting (rapidly) older, but rather a mini fresh start 12 times a year. I have a fitness plan worked out for the month and have continued my slow-but-steady loss to ge... Read more

So my recently posted 7 pound drop was, unfortunately, reported after a self-check weigh in on an unsanctioned scale (meaning not the "official" one I weigh in on with my TOPS group) and was also the result of a 48 hour stomach virus and resulti... Read more

So I just glanced down, and this subject heading basically means the same thing as my last one from a week ago. A little over a week ago, I got a crushing headache at lunchtime and decided it was okay to have a diet soda with lunch to crank so... Read more
system reset after a disappointing setback
Tuesday, October 23, 2012      7 comments

Well, tonight for the first time in 8 weeks, I gained half a pound for the week. This came as kind of a shock, as I had grown accustomed to the steady pound or two losses with what I was doing. I have to system reset and figure out what I had ... Read more
