VIKING CHALLENGE: Feb.18th -21 *Shamelessly stolen from KAT573*
Weekends are hard. For most of us, I think. I just tend to forget, whether intentionally or not, what I'm supposed to be doing. Long weekends are even harder, when I'm home and I have nothing to do, well, I munch. Idle hands and all that. So tha... Read more
Plateau from ... well, yeah.
This plateau is starting to get the best of me. Whether it's my fault or just one of those things, I don't know. That bothers me most. At least if I knew one way or another, I would know what I could, or could not, do about it. This not knowing,... Read more
Maybe this is what I need...
Sometimes, being so OCD is not such a great thing. I'm not very flexible with my schedule, once something is planned it's planned. The end, no adding anything. I hate having too much to do - dishes, and a workout? In the same evening? Eeek! I fe... Read more
Goodbye, Comfort Zone. I'm moving on!
I'm very much a list, schedule, routine kind of a person. I like to have things planned out, and I like to know in advance what's happening, when it's happening, and who's joining me. I really, really hate changes in plans. Most of all, I hate w... Read more
So, yesterday was a rough day. Not only were my coworkers upsetting me (without their knowledge, to be fair. They don't have all the facts.) it was stressful, upsetting, irritating, and I was just overall cranky. I had cookies sitting next to me... Read more
Work, Germs, and Me
This is totally a venting blog. Feel free to close this window if you don't want to hear my frustrations, which, by the way, are totally not weight related. No hard feelings here!
My work, like any other, has its problems. Of course, I think m... Read more
Digging my dreams out of the trash
It was a very, very rough weekend for me. I haven't been feeling all that great, emotionally, and it's getting very frustrating, this weight loss game. I'm stuck, and I can't seem to continue on. I would say it's a plateau, but how can that be a... Read more
Freaking out. Melting down.
So I weighed myself yesterday, as I do everyday. The scale showed a GAIN of a pound and a half. OK, that's never happened, but I understand weight fluctuates. Maybe that's finally happening to me? So I go about my business and try not to let it ... Read more

It's not about the calories anymore
When I first started SP last year, and restarted again in the fall, I focused mainly on calories. Calories in, calories out. Whenever I got off track with my calorie consumption, or my calorie burning, or didn't meet how many calories I wanted t... Read more
I feel like I should blog because it's been a few days, but I have nothing to report. I've been doing well on my calories, water, and I've been exercising. I skipped my morning walk at work on Tuesday, and I definitely felt it. Not in a good way... Read more
My Weekend = Awesomeness
This weekend was great. I got up Saturday and got some errands done, which were much needed! Then the husband and I went to a home show, where I did lots of walking and dreaming. :) We're going to remodel our kitchen this year, so we got lots o... Read more
Planning, planning, planning
I realize more and more that for me, planning is key. I MUST have my day planned out in advance, 'winging it' just doesn't work for me. I always end up way over or under on my calories, and find excuses to get out of working out.
Yesterday, I... Read more
So, I had the flu. And my lupus flared. (Of course! One couldn't be enough..had to be both!) But I am feeling much better, and thank you all for the well wishes, they meant a lot to me. Read more
I haven't been very active here on the site or in my life, as I've been sick lately. I did see the doctor on Monday, and she said I was flaring because I had the flu. What a combo! Hope you are all doing well. :) I hope to be back at it soon!... Read more
