Losing mental weight.
When I say "mental weight", what do I mean by that? Mental weight, for me, is the falsehoods and stinkin' thinkin' that can get in my own way of being the best person I was meant to be. I spend time today reflecting on now versus about seven m... Read more
Spinning away from being a statistic!
I'm (relatively) young. My recent university studies as a non-traditional student majoring in Health and Wellness have really made me hyper-aware of the health problems brought on by obesity. I'm going to shed this fat because it is what I did... Read more
Out of credit card debt!
I am so glad that I have made it this far. I've been paying off these things since getting in debt in '99 or something obsurd like that. Never again. Now, I still have medical and student debt, but that's different!!
Also, I have registe... Read more
This is the life I want to live.
Probably one of my favorite outdoor activities is backpacking. It is hiking and camping and conservation and being sensible all rolled into one. I really want to go again now that I have a mummy-style sleeping bag rated down to 41°F.
I'm ... Read more
Under 200# by the time I fly again.
The last time I flew in March of 2008, I was at my highest weight. I was so in denial of the situation. Some of the weight was medication related. I'm so glad to be off of that drug. I am saving money to fly to Canada for at least a week. A... Read more
Blah! Stress is eating me~
I'm soooo tired of waiting. Just tell me if I'm able to stay where I'm currently going to school. I got on academic probation--because of my sister's cancer treatment. Then the academic probation was extended (STRESS).
I have a backup ... Read more
recording and accounting
Just as a business has to account for expenditures and accounts receivable, so a person has to face up to the fact of his or her eating, exercise, and self-talk.
Take off those boxing gloves because it does no one no good, especially myself... Read more
New Year, New DAY
What does this year bring? Soon, a new (and my first) niece or nephew, the potential for completion of degree requirements for my undergrad, more yarny things, and a rededication to be gentle and healthy toward myself.
I have a Road ID, a ... Read more

5 miles yesterday, headache today.
I don't know if the two are related, but that's been my last two days. 4 miles on the bike in 26 minutes and 1 mile Walk Away the Pounds.
Headache today, so not much other than pain management and talking to some friends.
Looks like m... Read more
Down 0.5 lb
I'll take it!
I'm not diabetic, but I'm eating on a diabetic meal plan that has "meals" 6x/day. The smaller meals and food combining and moderate exercise is helping this excess weight go away.
I feel sooooooo much better. God re... Read more
Can't wait for today's workout
Man, I usually workout first thing in the morning. It is the best time for me, and I find that I can do that time of day with the greatest consistency. On Sundays, though, an afternoon workout seems to fit my schedule the best.
I've als... Read more
Wii vs. laptop
My mom got a strike in her very first frame of Wii Bowling today. Why, then, does Mom fuss at me when I am exercising and then lets me sit on my duff staring at my laptop? Who knows, and I sure do, that staring at a laptop is not always equata... Read more
Short hike in the Glen for my Birthday!
Ahh, it was a PERFECT FALL DAY, and I went into the Glen with a friend. Oh, lots of others had the same idea. It was busy on the trails. We didn't get to hike for as long as we wanted to. I'm ok with that because the time was a FREE gift fro... Read more
Enjoying the Fall, even with allergy head
Fall is my second favorite season, right behind Spring. I am working on taking every opportunity to enjoy the changing of the season. The leaves will be down soon, and those chimneys will start their cool-weather warm up.
I want some fr... Read more
