Discouraged, but not dead!
Friday, April 26, 2013      1 comments

Wow, has it really been over a year since I updated? My plans for last year did not pan out-- I didn't lose any weight before my sister's wedding, and in fact was the heaviest I've ever been (157.5) until hitting 158.5 after the Xmas holida... Read more
Return From Planet X

Well, I disappeared for almost the entire month of December. I accomplished none of my weight-loss goals, but only gained 1-2 pounds (pretty good, with all the Christmas sweets on constant ambush). I exercised really consistently, though I... Read more
Overdue Vacation Post
Tuesday, October 11, 2011      2 comments

I meant to get this up right after our July vacation, and even loaded up the pictures... but lost traction. That pretty much sums up my summer, now into Fall. We visited my family in Oregon over vacation, which always has its eating challen... Read more
Must find some self-discipline!

The exercise continues, the same as always. It's the sugar-binging and late-night eating that are killing me. I have small islands of control, but they don't last, and it gets very frustrating. I'm so tired of this treadmill, you wouldn't b... Read more

After nearly two solid weeks of rain, we have almost a solid week of sunshine ahead. I hope we're out of the La Nina phase for good-- what a pain. I biked along the American River bike path on Monday, for the first time in 3 weeks. The rive... Read more
Helmet Headache

We're partway through almost three solid weeks of rain, here in Sacramento. I think I've ridden outside 2 days, 1 day, and now 1 day again, and that'll be it until next week. Thank goodness for the indoor trainer in the garage, and the DVD ... Read more

We've left the coldest part of the year, so biking outdoors is really only halted right now for rain. What with our schizophrenic weather, I've been outside for about 2 rides a week and indoors for 1. Thank goodness for DVDs! Riding near my... Read more
Still here, still sparking, just not blogging much

My last entry was in November, and I had such high hopes of actually losing a few pounds before the end of the year! Instead, I gained a pound or two over Christmas, and then put on a few more before calling a halt to the sugar again in early F... Read more
Long Overdue Update
Thursday, November 11, 2010      0 comments

I see I last posted at the end of August, just after both kids' birthdays (and the birthday-cake explosion). Since then, I've been working to turn the scale around. I gradually gained back almost all the weight I'd lost the prior year, wit... Read more

Nothing much happenin on the riding-near-the-office front, which is always more of a "Tour de Roadkill" than anything. There ARE a ton of dead mice/shrews near the edge of some of the fields right now (did the farmers fumigate them, or what?) Ea... Read more
Exercise and Me...
Tuesday, August 24, 2010      6 comments

I read the Spark People article on "How Much Exercise Is Too Much" today, which talked about Compulsive Exercisers. "Is this me?" I wanted to know. I do work out a lot (6 days a week), and fitting in my exercise is a very high priority, bot... Read more
So, vacation was when?
Monday, August 23, 2010      7 comments

I'd intended to post again after my summer vacation, which ended about a month ago. I guess I've been a little preoccupied since then, with work and real-life things, and disappointment in how the weight loss is going. We spent a week and ... Read more
Done camping, getting ready to head to Oregon...
Wednesday, July 14, 2010      3 comments

We had our family camping trip this year, to our favorite spot-- the Lakes Basin Area in the Northern Sierra Nevada. This succession of lakes and hiking trails is off of a blacktop road between Highway 49 and Highway 89, and we go there every ye... Read more
No, I have not fallen off the planet
Tuesday, July 06, 2010      2 comments

It just feels like it, since I haven't updated in forever. Let's see... We were able to schedule a trip to Hawaii without the kids, and went at the end of May. I'd hoped to have lost at least 10 lbs. by then, but _nothing_. So I went, as o... Read more
Random Biking Adventures
Tuesday, April 20, 2010      2 comments

Sometimes I blog here about what I see during my various bike rides, and last week was especially stellar because my big surprise came while I was still in the office parking lot, warming up. In one of the lesser-used lots, there was a clum... Read more
