Getting closer to 5K
For two days in a row I've jogged 2 miles, with 1/4 mile warm-up and cool-down walks for a total of 2.5 miles. I've been getting up earlier because of the heat to keep at it. This is taking some will-power on my part because I REALLY want to s... Read more
Phineas and Ferb
Last week was a little disappointing as far as exercise went. I only worked out on two days, which is better than none, but not as much as I hoped. A migraine early in the week slowed me down a bit, then it tried to come back later in the week... Read more
I worked another extra shift yesterday. It hasn't been too bad lately. One of the techs came up to me whispering, "Can I ask you a question? How much weight have you lost?"
I've looked at the forecast for the coming week, and I am NOT looking forward to the impending heat. I guess it will inspire me to start getting up earlier to get outside for my jogs before the heat sets in. I'll have to do that anyway as the ... Read more

Well, I definitely need to get back on track with my food. July seems to have been a bad month for motivation for me to eat properly. With the Fourth of July and three birthdays, I found it necessary to eat the food I baked. Then I felt physi... Read more

Below 180! The Not-So-Fat Lady is Singing!!!!!!!!!!!
Although this story has a happy ending (well, middle actually, I've got more weight to lose), it's been a frustrating ten days to this point.
Ten days ago we went camping for the weekend. I was active, but ate horribly. The last few times... Read more
Jellystone Campground, Sioux Falls, SD
Well, we did it. We took our first camping trip of the summer up to Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Some people up there were surprised that Sioux Falls was our destination. I guess it's the spring board to go to Mount Rushmore. We got up there ... Read more
