What's the Day After Black Friday?

Saturday, November 26, 2011      2 comments

Purple Saturday? Yellow? Green? To me, it feels more purple today, but the day is young -- it could turn any color. My Black Friday was awesome. I did exactly what I set out to do -- got a few things done around the house and relaxed too. H... Read more

My Kind of Black Friday

Friday, November 25, 2011      1 comments

I love my family. I really do. I know that I am a very lucky woman to have such a wonderful family. Still, when I get a chance to be home alone and do WHATEVER I WANT, I really enjoy it! Today they all wanted to go shopping -- the Black Friday m... Read more

A Digital Diet

Tuesday, September 20, 2011      2 comments

I'm reading this book called The Digital Diet, all about stepping away from all the technology that rules our lives -- well, for some of us. I've had a sinking realization lately that I am spending way too much time on the computer. I wouldn't g... Read more

Hello, Yo-Yo, My Old Friend

Sunday, September 11, 2011      4 comments

I set my September goals and was really fired up about them and stuck to them for many days. Well, stuck to most of them. I'm having a heckofatime sticking under my calorie limit lately. For some reason, I feel more hungry, eat a little bit more... Read more

September goals

Saturday, September 03, 2011      2 comments

There's something about starting a new month or a new year or a new goal... I just love it! It feels all shiny new and achievable. My goals for this month are: 1) Lose 8 pounds 2) Stick with my running/workout plans (alternating days... Read more

I woke up this morning with my mind heartily fastened to the concept of choice, the many ways we make our paths in this world, the small choices we make every day that lead to our future comforts or difficulties, the more significant choices tha... Read more

It's becoming obvious to me that I am in a state of flux with regard to my dedication to my fitness efforts and my grieving. It's not steady progress. This I know about dieting and exercising, from a lifetime of yoyo dieting. It was all or ... Read more

Eiffel Tower Mystery Solved

Tuesday, August 16, 2011      4 comments

A few people have asked what's up with my Eiffel Tower picture. Am I French? Do I live in Paris? Am I in love with the Eiffel Tower? The story is simple. When choosing a picture, I didn't feel like putting my face up for the world to see. ... Read more

After the Hiccup

Sunday, August 14, 2011      2 comments

I've had a few post-vacation days to get myself back on track, and guess what? I did it! It hasn't even felt hard. I want to do it. I've been running, walking, toning, eating pretty well, and tracking it all. Hurrah! It feels good to do this. I'... Read more

Vacation Bloat

Thursday, August 11, 2011      4 comments

It is so, so, SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good to be home. Really. Happy. To be. Home. I may share vacation stories later, but for now, suffice to say that my so-called "August Goals" were thrown out the window. (Why passive voice? Did anyone other tha... Read more

August Goals

Monday, August 01, 2011      4 comments

I love to set short-term goals. LOVE IT. They're so do-able -- not the pie-in-the-sky "lose 50 pounds" or "win the lottery" kinds of goals, but "If I just set my mind to it, I CAN DO THIS" kinds of goals. YES. DO IT. The topic of goal-setti... Read more

Doing the Best We Can

Sunday, July 24, 2011      1 comments

Sometimes the best we can do isn't the best we think we should be able to do, or the best we were doing before. But it's the best we can do right now, and it's good to accept that and forgive ourselves for not being perfect. Wow, that is re... Read more

Baby Steps

Sunday, July 17, 2011      2 comments

It looks like I need to ease back into the whole diet/exercise thing. Last week I ran twice and walked twice and managed to track food most of the week. I'm up a couple pounds this week, but I'm not too worried about it - it's probably from the ... Read more

Low Expectations

Monday, July 11, 2011      0 comments

I ran today. I knew it would be hard, so I set my goal really, really low. After 6 weeks off filled with despair and lethargy, I knew my first time running was not going to be stellar. I decided I would go 30 minutes and run one minute every fiv... Read more

July 1 = restart day. NOT. Since I "restarted," I've gained 4 pounds and still haven't exercised even once. This is even harder than I expected. I thought returning to my nearly obsessive food tracking and dedicated exercising might be some... Read more
