Wednesday, December 16, 2009      1 comments

I'm doing a job at my house today for which I don't have the right tools. The problem is that I can't afford to buy the right ones or to hire someone who has them so I'm stuck trying to make a way. This is frustrating me! But such is life. If yo... Read more

Down Another Pound

Friday, December 11, 2009      2 comments

It feels so good to have reversed the holiday season trend of weight gain. This was the time I feared when I began SP some 10 months ago, namely, the time when I lost motivation and stopped caring and just put the weight back on. But thanks be t... Read more

Thursday, December 10, 2009      1 comments

I gained a few pounds over the last few weeks and quickly decided that was NOT okay. So I've been working hard and, thank God, I'm down several pounds already. I'm still 3 pounds away from where I was but I'm halfway back and that feels REALLY g... Read more

I Ran for 15 Minutes

Wednesday, December 09, 2009      3 comments

I rode my bike 2,500 miles this year so I'm not exactly out of shape, and yet I've always hated running and have never been able to run for very long. As I thought about how to keep myself in shape this winter, I decided to take up running (indo... Read more

Good Movie, Bad Decision

Friday, December 04, 2009      3 comments

My daughter and I watched a great movie last night, "The Blind Side." As good as the movie was, my decision at the theater was bad--I had a small popcorn (no butter at least), a box of junior mints, and a large icee. Oh, what was I thinking? I g... Read more
