We took another mini-vacation, this time to Duluth. Much fun! Much food! Oh Lordy, I do eat too much on vacation. BUT -- my one saving grace -- I exercised! I ran two mornings, mainly because my travel companions slept in, so I really didn... Read more

June 15: Weight Surprises

Monday, June 15, 2015      5 comments

I haven't been super dedicated or super consistent lately. I'm having a hard time keeping my calories in range. But hey at least I am tracking. That's something. At least I know how much I'm eating. I'm exercising a lot. Biking, walking, s... Read more

June 14: Biking Plus Five

Sunday, June 14, 2015      6 comments

My biking "coach" -- really, a friend who is a serious biker -- said if I want to bike a century ride this fall, the way to build up to that is adding 5 miles to my long ride each week. So yesterday was my 30-mile ride, up from my 23-mile ride ... Read more

watch?v=JlENFkf6upw Without going into too much gory detail, things got really ugly 2 days ago, pretty much right after my last blog. We've had some underlying stress for sever... Read more

June 10/11: The Lessons of Overeating

Thursday, June 11, 2015      10 comments

Yesterday I went out for breakfast at Perkins. My meal included a muffin, which I took to go. (Can you imagine eating an omelet PLUS potatoes/fruit PLUS a muffin???) I ate the omelet (minus hollandaise!) and fruit and saved the muffin for later... Read more

Tuesday, June 09, 2015      6 comments

Forgot to blog again last night... did I mention I'm trying to blog every day during the month of June? Trying! Anyhoo... I biked to work today. 7.5 miles one way. And home again. 15.72 miles total. And it was 95 degrees today. I loooo... Read more

June 7: Inactive Family Blues

Sunday, June 07, 2015      9 comments

Today.... I will admit it..... I shed some tears. I asked my family (husband and two teenaged boys) if they wanted to go for a bike ride. No. How about a hike? No. My husband shot back with: "It's incredibly humid today. I don't want to do... Read more

June 5/6: The Joys of Summer

Saturday, June 06, 2015      7 comments

It occurred to me this morning that I forgot to blog yesterday. As with all the other goals I set for June..... I made it 4-5 days and started slipping. It's time to hoist up my britches and get back on track. Mixed metaphors -- it's my thang! ... Read more

June 4: Thinking of Dad

Thursday, June 04, 2015      7 comments

Four years ago today, my dad passed away. It was completely unexpected -- a complete shock. He died from a heart attack at 69 years old with no known history of heart disease. He was active, fit, and strong. And he meant the world to me. So... Read more

June 3: A Sugar Tale

Wednesday, June 03, 2015      4 comments

The food challenge today for Streaking Into Summer was to count up all added sugar. I ate pretty decently today. The only sugary food I had was a small piece of cake with lunch. Still, I ended up with 50 grams of sugar! I wish foods that a... Read more

June 2: I'm a Hungry Girl

Tuesday, June 02, 2015      7 comments

Today's lesson, boys and girls, is that when you have been eating pretty much whatever you want (that is to say, a lot), and then you attempt to eat like a thin person, your tummy will cry out: THAT WASN'T ENOUGH! I WANT MORE! I NEED MORE! ... Read more

June 1: Restarting the OCD

Monday, June 01, 2015      8 comments

Howdy friends! I haven't been very active on Sparkpeople lately, but I'm still here, still working on losing the last little bit of weight I want to lose. I should say: working on it, then not working on it, lather, rinse, and repeat. I ha... Read more
