Negative, Ghost Rider, the pattern is full.
Three weeks ago I sat down and wrote a really awesome, well-thought out (and I like to think inspirational) blog. I then spent a week successfully navigating my mission with fantastic results.
Sunday two weeks ago - I crashed. Total engine... Read more
With a little help...
My friend Hope and I followed each other to 7-11 at lunchtime. I was telling her that even though I had had all my allotted soda for a week, I was going to have some today because I'd been good and I wanted to dangit! She told me, "no excuses!" ... Read more
I'm making a slight edit to my plan. I had chosen 36 oz of soda per week accounting for 3 12oz cans. Thing is, I normally drink my soda in 20oz bottles! So I can have 40oz a week, which is soda twice. I still think this is a very reasonable, yet... Read more
A "relaxing" Sunday
Relaxing only because the only thing that HAD to get done was grocery shopping. But I got quite a few things marked off my to do list, exercised, took the kids swimming, and started setting up a dedicated work station for my claying.
So fa... Read more

So Monday I threatened to do the WATP 3-mile today since the 2-mile had left me wanting more. Well that was silly! This one pushed me really hard and I was SOOOOO done by the end of it! But I did it!!!!... Read more
Is that all you got?!?!?!
As soon as I got Even on the bus this morning I came home and popped in my WATP 2 mile. I play my own music so I don't have to shoot myself or die of boredom or anything. I was having such a great time rocking out that when Leslie slowed down an... Read more
One week of success!
It was with trepidation that I stepped on my scale this morning. I'd met all my workout goals but had gone over my calories a few days, one day pretty badly. Would I meet my goal of one pound loss? Even with 7 days of no soda, drinking tons of w... Read more
Die Snooze, DIE!!!
We had to pick up the kids from their dad this morning, so last night I set my alarm with the intention of getting up early enough to get my workout in before we left. If you know me even a little, you're chuckling to yourself because you know I... Read more

Just finished my cardio for the day, AND did my strength yesterday! Well, a little, It was harder than I thought it would be!! I did go over my calories yesterday but not nearly as bad as I could have and it was a rough day. I did a working inte... Read more
One day down!
Yesterday I managed to stay in my calorie limit - hooray! I also avoided soda. I'm giving it up again, my record is 4 months. I have one bottle of Diet Pepsi in the fridge and there it will stay. I want to keep it in the house to remind myself t... Read more
Happy New Year
I was going to write something long and inspirational to herald my return for the new year, but frankly I don't feel like it. I'm tired of being fat and I'm horrified that I am currently wearing XXL pajama pants. That's just dumb. No more.... Read more
Looks like a full house!
The mountain roads are too bad to take the kids to their dad, so looks like we have everyone this weekend. Well, Brian's might go to his mom's which is fine since Austin's gonna be in a mood, I'm sure. Is it appropriate to tell a 15yo his mother... Read more
It's gonna be a long weekend... Besides having a ton to do, we've decided Austin and Brendan will NOT be going to their mom's for a while. As Brian says, she's getting a bit too big for her britches. We haven't told them yet, and Austin isn't go... Read more
