Today I am wearing SIZE SIXTEEN JEANS. Okay, so they're STRETCH jeans, but STILL, they FIT, I could ZIP them without gasping for air AND sit AND bend over! Oh Victory in Jesus, my Savior forever...!... Read more

Tracking those calories, working those muscles...started downward again, and I HOPE it will continue in that ONE direction. ABi and I have discussed going partly vegetarian, especially since DH seems to be making up for our controlled eating by... Read more

Well, I got up today and followed the recommendation for the SECOND time, of having a light carb (slice of whole grain bread) prior to working out, to fuel the body. Since it's a non-strength day, I used Denise Austins Fat Burning dvd, and I als... Read more

I have a hard time with late night snacking...especially because of DH but I can't put all the blame on him. I got resistance bands and a balance ball for Christmas - have used the former, gonna try out the latter tomorrow when I do my workout.... Read more

I've crept back up, what with wonderful holiday jollity, enjoying great food and family. But I know I can get below 200, and I shall return! I made my appointment with the doc today, returning to her in April - a year after she told me I'd bette... Read more

I have been maintaining, which is good, considering the temptations at this time of year. Oh, I did indulge in some goodies, but I'm still 198! Yay! And even though I got to bed late last night and anticipated not being up to doing strength toda... Read more

I have finally broken the 200 barrier, with REALLY concentrating on keeping in my range and adding extra exercise in the form of more weight for strength and more walking for cardio. I had driven around the block to measure the distance on the o... Read more

Some foods just smell sooooo good, like microwave popcorn. When DH zapped some last night, i HAD to have some too. And more. Well, I gotta keep these cravings under control! Some habits are just hard to break. On the positive side, even thoug... Read more

Well, they say to bust plateaus it's good to change something in the exercise. I'm now using a 15-pound weight for my dumbell rows and tricep extensions; I'm strapping all THREE weights to my legs when I do the standing abductions and the seated... Read more

I really DO want to make it by the end of the month, and to do so I must be quite firm with myself. This is very difficult in light of the Swiss Colony goodies (Incredible Spreadables! mmmmm) that arrived. But I look ahead to the trip to Cusco i... Read more

After taking Foreman to the airport this morning, I called both places of employment to take off due to gastroenteritis. Then later on, just out of curiosity I weighed in. Two Hundred! Let's hear it for fever and diahrrhea!... Read more

The scenes from what I call the "pig roast" (though really, it was boiled...) take place in Foreman's back yard, and there are also scenes in his mom's kitchen/dining area on the back porch of her house. This is a common arrangement - Iquitos is... Read more

with my busy schedule it's hard to remember to do everything needed to remain a Community Team Member. Perish the thought of losing THAT distinction! I note, my goodness, it's over 10 days since I blogged! OOPS! So here I am. I'm on my way to be... Read more

Or, to paraphrase McCoy from the old Star Trek series, I'm an EDUCATOR, not a disciplinarian! The frustration is that I have to write a referral if I eject a disruptive student. Well, I've done that...gotta see who gets it...didn't do it during ... Read more
