Still sick

Friday, February 10, 2012      6 comments

I woke up at 6am with a nose bleed, then went back to bed and was there until 11:30. I feel dreadful.... Read more

Sick house

Thursday, February 09, 2012      8 comments

Hubs and I have both managed to come down sick. This is unusual; we generally are only sick one at a time, and don't tend to "cross-pollinate" our illnesses. But hey, it's almost Valentines Day, and isn't this a time for loving couples to s... Read more

Getting sick?

Wednesday, February 08, 2012      5 comments

In the last few years, it seems like my winters have been spent swinging from one cold to the next. This year has been much better; a couple times I thought I was getting sick, but managed to stave it off. Today, though, I think this cold h... Read more

A sign of the new me?

Tuesday, February 07, 2012      4 comments

After last night's drool-worthy watching of Triple-D, I went to bed and dreamt about eating... Strawberries. A long, elaborate dream about having a large dinner party with friends, and the hosts insisting it was time for dessert, and m... Read more

Self torture

Monday, February 06, 2012      7 comments

You know, when you're up late and kind of hungry, watching "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives"? It's kind of...pornography. (This is me laughing at myself -- and heading for bed instead of for the kitchen!)... Read more

Resolution of frustration with friend

Sunday, February 05, 2012      7 comments

Thanks to everyone who commented on my post yesterday. Your comments really helped me to decide how to handle the situation. I should clarify that the day's plans were to take the kids to the home show with us and then they went home to a... Read more

Frustration with a friend

Saturday, February 04, 2012      9 comments

We went to the Home Show with our best friends and their three kids today. After only getting through about 1/3 of the aisles, my friend decided that she wanted to buy Sugar Bears, small marsupials that look like tiny flying squirrels. The proce... Read more

I got to the top of the stairs, sighed heavily, and said to Hubby, "This. This is the moment when I really miss it." Yes, I'm day three into no artificially sweetened iced tea mix, and doing pretty well. But after I finish my workout, my fi... Read more

My other addiction

Thursday, February 02, 2012      10 comments

Unless we go out or have friends over, I've fallen into the habit of staring at the computer all evening, just refreshing the page and looking for things to respond to. While I love the support I'm getting here, and have friends I want to intera... Read more

The day of reckoning

Wednesday, February 01, 2012      8 comments

For over a quarter century I have been drinking Lipton Sugar Free Instant Iced Tea, a concoction of chemical sweetness and caffeination that has kept me going through raising kids, working, divorce and remarriage, moving across country, and more... Read more

A quarter of the way!

Monday, January 30, 2012      12 comments

As of today, I am 1/4 of the way to my goal weight. I've also reached the "10% of body weight lost" goal. I've been on Spark People just a little bit over 4 months, and with all this help and support I have made tremendous progress. Thank you al... Read more

I never bike in the winter. Even when the weather is nice and the snow has melted and the roads are dry, I just don't do it. But today I had to get my bike back from the shop, where it was getting its tuneup for spring. And the bike shop is... Read more

Strutin' my stuff!

Thursday, January 26, 2012      10 comments

The last time I bought pants was in October. I struggled to zip a pair of size 24s, and figured that they'd probably stretch a bit. The store didn't have anything larger, so I had to go with those. I left feeling humiliated. Today, I just z... Read more

Pedal to the Point

Wednesday, January 25, 2012      4 comments

I've done it. I've committed to Pedal to the Point, a 150-mile bike ride to benefit Multiple Sclerosis research. Of course, the point of the ride is to raise funds, and as I have a good friend with MS it is important to me. But I am also glad of... Read more

Even bad wasn't too bad

Monday, January 23, 2012      4 comments

Only worked out twice last week, didn't record my eating. But I also didn't just let go and go crazy. And I weighed in this morning a pound and a half down. Now it's time to get the discipline back.... Read more
