Yet Another Glorious Re-Start, with a new motto

Sunday, November 04, 2012      2 comments

My newest motto is: "Celebrate initiation, not endurance." By this, I mean to focus on just starting my exercise or healthy eating, and not worry so much about follow-through. I'm actually quite GOOD at follow-through, but initiation (ge... Read more

Holding Strong

Thursday, September 27, 2012      6 comments

Last night, I got home late from work to find that the hubs hadn't made dinner; he'd been working on the house, and lost track of time. So we ordered DELIVERY -- tacos! We have an amazing taco joint, and we all love Mexican. However. ... Read more

Follow Up To "This One's For Me"

Tuesday, September 25, 2012      2 comments

Well, it seems to have worked for at least today. I put myself higher on my priority list. I stood in front of the open fridge and eyed all the yummies. I then asked myself (aloud, I'll have you know), "What's my priority RIGHT NOW?" I told ... Read more

This One's For Me

Monday, September 24, 2012      1 comments

I'm very wishy-washy right now, and I'm pissing myself off. I want to do a concentrated time of clean eating (that has worked wonderfully for me in the past), but ... I just have lost my oomph! I am oomphless. De-oomphed, as it were. ... Read more

Some Successes, Some ... Not-Successes

Saturday, September 01, 2012      4 comments

Well, I did, in fact, have a night of nervous eating and drinking. Not horrible, but I really really had a tough time. My brother's surgery was supposed to be 8 hours long. It ended up being a little over 17 hours long. I simply tried ... Read more

Nervous Eating: Tonight's Challenge

Wednesday, August 29, 2012      4 comments

Welp, tonight I am quite sure that unless I wire my jaw shut, I'm going to have the urge to eat to quell nervousness. My oldest brother is in the hospital with life-or-death surgery on his carotid artery, heart valves, and aorta. Yikes. SO far... Read more

When Work _IS_ Working Out

Sunday, August 26, 2012      3 comments

My house. My sweet, 85-year-old house. We're prepping the outside of the house for painting. Oh, how I wish it were just PAINTING. No. It's peeling and nasty, and we have to scrape -- by hand-- and then sand -- with power sanders-- the... Read more

In Which Life Kicks Me In the Buttocks, and I Try To Deal

Friday, August 24, 2012      3 comments

It's true, isn't it? About how our bodies keep trying until they get what they want? (Nutrition, comfort, etc.) In the interest of full disclosure, last night after posting, I got some very upsetting news. A sibling had a stroke, and then... Read more

::Splash, Splash::

Wednesday, August 22, 2012      3 comments

I'm guessing that MUCH of that 9 pounds of weight gain was water. I forgot how much salt and chemicals there is in pre-prepared and restaurant food. I am down 2.2 pounds SINCE YESTERDAY. Of course, I drank 12 glasses of water and ate NO... Read more

Tuesday, August 21, 2012      3 comments

Blah. Family visit + stress + boredom = 9 pounds total. Oh yes. NINE. Which puts me back in "Two-derland." Not Onederland. Bah. But I'm back. Again and again and again. I am back. I plan on chopping those 9 pounds off my sorr... Read more

From the Sublime To The Ridiculous

Wednesday, August 08, 2012      6 comments

I went to my doctor (OK - she's really a LPN, but for simplicity's sake, I call her my doc. Go with it.) last week. It's been maybe a year since I last went, and..... drumroll..... I'm 40 pounds lower than last year. She was BEAMING. Lik... Read more

It's A Long Road Back (mentally)

Tuesday, July 31, 2012      5 comments

Today has been challenging, after last night's debauch. I was quite surprised to find my weight the same today as it was yesterday morning. Whew. Why was today challenging? Because JUST LAST NIGHT, I let it all go. I let myself break ... Read more
