Sunday, January 24, 2016      9 comments

Howdy, friends! It's been a while since I blogged. Not much to say, I guess. I'm spinning my wheels with this weight-loss thing. My motivation is yoyoing as much as my weight is! Despite the weight spike, I'm feeling pretty good about thing... Read more

January 1, 2016: Starting Over at 132.5

Friday, January 01, 2016      6 comments

I'm a full 10 pounds UP from my lowest weight (April 2014). Sigh. Lots of yoyoing in 20 months. And so I begin again, the downward trek. Smarter eating. I've been pretty faithful to working out during this period -- especially cardio, not so muc... Read more

On Again Off Again -- 2015, the Year That Was

Sunday, December 27, 2015      6 comments

Nearly 5 years ago, after a life of fatness, I had had enough and I set about finally losing the extra weight that had plagued me my whole life. I wasn't morbidly obese, but "chubby." I started running and tracking my food, and I lost 30 pounds.... Read more

I'm Back

Wow, my longest SP absence ever, I think. I've been too busy, too stressed out, eating too much, exercising too little, and now I'm ready to get back into my healthy habits.... Read more

When Busy Is Awesome

Tuesday, November 03, 2015      9 comments

"Busy" is probably the most overused word in the English language. It's our answer to "how are you" and our excuse for many invitations. I've been feeling busier than usual lately because I actually am busier than usual. I went from having... Read more

Vertigo Again

Saturday, September 26, 2015      7 comments

Wednesday morning 4:00 a.m. I rolled over in bed, and that sickening spinning feeling crashed over me again. I looked at my alarm clock, and the numbers were dancing all over the place. As quickly as I could, I rolled back to my other side, and ... Read more

Losing Weight Is Not Rocket Science

Saturday, September 05, 2015      9 comments

#1 - Eat like a reasonable person. I've been trying to eat within my SP calorie range but going just a tiny bit over all week. Still, I've lost a few pounds. So I'm very pleased. Compared to how I ate during August -- with the occasional in-rang... Read more

Weight Spike

Monday, August 24, 2015      7 comments

I stepped on the scale this morning to a surprising 4.5-pound weight gain. I stepped off and back on again. That can't be right. Hm. Yup, up 4.5 pounds. Read more

Here We Go Again

Despite my frequent declarations that I am really getting serious this time, my weight has crept back up to a weight I swore I would never see again. I am sooooooooooooooo irritated with myself. 130. I cannot keep eating like this an... Read more

Day of Rest

A lazy Sunday ahead........ starting with some couch time with my dog and some recorded concerts on the DVR (Annie Lennox and Simon & Garfunkel). Next up: some housework. Nothing too massive, but I will feel better if I could finally check... Read more

Sanity Prevails

Saturday, August 15, 2015      9 comments

For those of you who expressed concern about my plan to go on a 4-5 hour bike ride on a blistering hot day: NO WORRIES! I got a later start than I should have, if I were indeed going to attempt the long ride. So I knew right there that it w... Read more

Coveted Trophies

Only twice have I achieved the coveted 2000 Monthly Fitness Minutes trophy on Sparkpeople. Shocking, I know. Lately, I've been putting in A LOT of minutes. I'm running three times a week, biking three times a week, and walking almost every... Read more

Day of Rest

Sunday, July 26, 2015      8 comments

Following my training plan, today is a day off from both running and biking. My legs say: THANK YOU! I may go for a nice, long walk. And I should do some toning today. I've been neglecting that. I've been really dedicated to running an... Read more
