Better Than Yesterday

Tuesday, July 14, 2015      7 comments

Thankfully, today is a little better than yesterday. Admittedly a low bar! And thanks to all of you for all your encouragement and support. It helps so much! Still feeling really exhausted but step by step doing what I can. I sometimes fo... Read more

Today was a crappy day. Too much going on lately, I really need a break. I did my best and it was probably the best I could expect considering. It’s just been a tough time. Here is my Stage 1 checklist for today: I motivated myse... Read more

I could do with a little less excitement in my life!

We got home from Savannah early Sunday morning to a flooded apartment. Water was raining down from the ceilings and all over the floor. The couch was ruined and the carpets were soaked. After some initial misunderstandings - the emergency answer... Read more

Uh Oh

Friday, July 10, 2015      6 comments

Uh oh. I really blew it today. We are still in Savannah and I was waylaid today by a piece of coconut cake with coconut frosting. I kept looking at it and looking at it and everything else – all my strategies, everything – went strai... Read more

Today my fiancé and I drove with his daughter to her college orientation. It has been fun, but I think all of us are a little stressed over a bunch of things, so it’s been a little up and down emotionally. One thing I love about him is that h... Read more

When the Going Gets Tough

Tuesday, July 07, 2015      7 comments

What a day. Settlement on my house was not too smooth but it worked out in the end. And meeting with my sons, their dad and the social worker to try to work out a good plan for release from acute care rehab after his stroke was also a very roc... Read more

Back to Spark, Back to Beck

Monday, July 06, 2015      4 comments

I’ve not been completely MIA from Beck but haven’t blogged for a while. Between work and the craziness of life, I haven’t had a minute to spare…or at least it feels that way. Here’s what’s been going on: Did a ton of reno... Read more

Once again, having a tough time losing. Although if I were maintaining, I’d be doing great! But that’s not where I want to be. I am mostly sticking to my plan, but not always. And a couple days over the past two weeks, I’ve failed to pla... Read more

Long Week!

Friday, March 27, 2015      6 comments

This has been a long week in which I have been up and down with my ability to stick to my plan. Lots going on, work busy but positive and many changes happening in my life. We started the week with a family celebration of my engagement at my old... Read more

And...a Pound and a Half Down This Morning!

Tuesday, March 17, 2015      6 comments

As if to demonstrate how hard it is to predict how any individual act will affect my weight at a given time, I am down a pound and a half down after yesterday's chicken pot pie blowout! (and no, KALIGIRL, I don't think it was healthier than Mari... Read more

I am disappointed with myself. I did well with eating this weekend (even going out to dinner!) and then totally blew it at lunch when I ordered chicken pot pie instead of the light sandwich I had planned to order. Why did I do that? I was so... Read more

Normalcy Returns

Saturday, March 14, 2015      9 comments

After a few days of celebrating, I am back on track. And strangely, my body seems to like the weight I am - overindulging (although not much) is sending the scale up only temporarily and then it pops back down to 146. But while my body ma... Read more

Big News!

This week was wonderful the man I love asked me to marry him and I said yes. I feel like the luckiest woman in the world! We are so right for each other and I feel so lucky to have found him. We spent much of the week sharing the happy news w... Read more

Its been a busy week and I am grateful for the weekend. I went to hot yoga class this morning and it was challenging. I am happy to do my own practice at home but having the opportunity to learn new things and remember old things with a teacher... Read more

Quick Blog and a Question

Thursday, March 05, 2015      5 comments

It's late and I'm tired so this will be short. It was a good day and I mostly stuck to my plan, although I had to make a quick adjustment at the end of the day when I got out of work late and had to stop for dinner rather than going home in orde... Read more
