The summer is officially here!
I just finished signing my son up for swimming lessons and to me, that means summer is finally here. We have begun the busy schedule and craziness of trying to cram all the fun stuff into 3 short months of nice weather. This weekend is going t... Read more
Why is it easier to not eat than to eat healthy?
With all the convenience foods and drive thrus out there, it has gotten to the point that it is far easier to skip eating all together than to find something healthy. Of course, not eating is not an option, but the frustration level is real. I... Read more
Another year older....
As my birthday approaches once again, I can't help but reflect on what I have not accomplished in the last year. Still the same fat slug that I used to be, but now I am paying for a gym membership that I don't use often enough. Still unemploye... Read more
The hazards of ice skating
So remember how I was LOVING taking ice skating lessons? Best 1/2 hour of my week and all that? Well, I won't be doing that for a while. During my class on March 1 I fell a shattered my right wrist. Spent 8 hours in the ER, had it set twice ... Read more
I am going to register my boy for kindergarten today. I am actually feeling sad for me and excited for him all at the same time. He is getting so big! Time really does fly past and it is hard to see the forest for the trees sometimes. I have... Read more
You know you are a Diet Coke addict when....
.....you can walk around your house and lift up 6 empty cans of Diet Coke before finding the one that you were drinking. Either an addict or a very bad housekeeper. Maybe both. But here is a little background:

Progress is progress, no matter how small
I have been back on this journey for the past 3 months and have reached the point where I WANT to see some results. I have been focusing on exercise mostly, since I have some hang-ups with food control. But the scale isn't really moving in the... Read more
Minor shopping success
I was in desperate need of jeans (see previous jeans shopping blog) and there were non to be found in my area. So I dragged my friend to the outlet mall in the Dells for an impromptu girls day. We were only supposed to be gone a few hours but ... Read more
The Olympics start tonight!
I LOOOOOOVE the winter Olympics. Always have, probably always will. I love watching skating, hockey, curling, skiing, everything! It is a little ironic since I HATE spending any time outside in the winter. I will also never ski again since th... Read more
The Depression Dilema
Confession time. I am depressed. Like clinically, taking drugs depressed. It started with a case of postpartum depression after I had my daughter. So my doctor put me on drugs and I was doing much better. These "happy pills" as I call them ... Read more
Is it just me or am I losing my mind?
Between the weather, a potty-training toddler, a teething baby and a pre-schooler with cabin fever, I think I am losing my marbles. Rapidly. By this time each week, I am in serious need of some alone time, but by the time I get away, I am too ... Read more
I am feeling a bit better today than this weekend. Things are looking down scale wise; not back to wear I was the other day, but better. Hopefully I am still on track, but am always in danger of hitting a rock in the road. I let all the littl... Read more
Yesterday was a bad day
So yesterday has not been good. I broke down in a heap of tearful misery. I have been on this journey so many times before and failed so completely each time that it is just soul crushing. Now this time I have barely started and I am already ... Read more
Trying to dig up some motivation....
Today has been a cold wet cruddy day around here and that is exactly the same kind of mood I have been in. I feel exceptionally lazy and am lacking in motivation of any kind. Not just the kind to exercise, but even to fold laundry or finish th... Read more
