Where the heck has she BEEN?

Saturday, May 03, 2014      2 comments

I've been crazy. We bought a house last fall. There's blog posts in here back there about the whole deal, mainly, and then it was DONE, and we were MOVING, and it got too crazy to keep up with my life, much less report on it and record what I ... Read more

Anniversary Post!

Saturday, August 31, 2013      5 comments

OK, so it's been awhile since I posted any kind of milestone or progress report regarding my weight loss. It occurred to me today that this is Labor Day weekend, and therefore, this weekend marks the 1 year anniversary of the Low-Carb Plan. In v... Read more

Is officially official and stuff. Sorta.

So we applied for the mortgage today, locked in the rate, which, at 4.75% is better than it could have been. With an FHA mortgage, we're locked into private mortgage insurance for the lifetime of the loan, so we will need to save our pennies an... Read more

What a lovely wedding

Saturday, August 17, 2013      2 comments

And I am SO glad that it's over. Because I've had my wedding cake gumpaste flower stuff out all over the dining room table for two weeks, and I'm sick of looking at it. My hands are cramping from kneading fondant and rolling stuff, and I'm jus... Read more

Prayer Request!

Friday, August 16, 2013      4 comments

OK, it's a doozy... I got the check from the lawyer in Winnipeg for my inheritance from Dad's estate. Which is fantastic news, really! However, I got some stinky news when I took it to the bank... I'm in the US, and Winnipeg is in Canada,... Read more

Got woken up by a phone call from a lawyer today...

Tuesday, August 13, 2013      5 comments

Not generally on my list of favorite ways to start the day. HOWEVER, this one was calling to tell me that all my paperwork was in order and that they're cutting my inheritance check today or tomorrow and it will be sent via courier! This, ... Read more

We're buying a HOUSE, people.

Sunday, August 04, 2013      4 comments

Apparently, there's not QUITE enough going on in my life at the moment. So we're going to buy a house, as soon as it is feasible and possible and manageable to do so. Which, in a delightfully BIZARRE way, I'm very excited about, because I've N... Read more

OK, so I'm OFFICIALLY over halfway to the finish line with this thing! I've been consistently under 204 for a WEEK. Today was a new level at 202.4, it's the first time I'd broken through the line at 203. So it's time to BLOG ABOUT IT. I'm go... Read more

I'm struggling a LOT since I came home. The weight is coming off, which I'm happy about, I've actually recovered from the gain of those two months off plan already, as far as weight loss is concerned. Most of which has been accomplished by eat... Read more

Finally! I got home last night, and of course my weight is up, but only by 7.5 lbs, which, considering I was SO off-plan for TWO FULL MONTHS, isn't THAT terrible. Dad's house sold, the paperwork was approved by the province in time to m... Read more

Well THAT was less fun than we thought. And then things got ROUGH.

So long over due blog post. Yep, I'm still kicking. The short version is working in a call center where they penalize you for taking time off to be sick encourages people to come in when they're sick. Which spreads the sick around. Which is l... Read more

Still On Track! I've Missed You Guys!

Wednesday, March 27, 2013      3 comments

Just haven't been around here much lately. I seem to be doing better in the last week about tracking my food, but even when I wasn't tracking I was still eating on plan, and I'm still losing, so it's all good. I'm still reading other peopl... Read more

WHAT a TRIP! New pics!

Sunday, March 03, 2013      4 comments

Um, so I went through my closet awhile ago and got rid of some stuff that I don't can't wear anymore, and then some life happened and I gave those clothes to my daughter to go through to see if there was anything SHE wanted to salvage, and it tu... Read more

Monday, February 18, 2013      5 comments

Until MY BIRTHDAY! And my last day in this seemingly unending streak of finishing training and working the new schedule! All I want for my birthday is to SLEEP IN TUESDAY! So about my birthday... I do tend to make a biggish deal out of it... Read more

Buh-Bye, Weekends... possibly FOREVER.

Sunday, February 10, 2013      4 comments

So this weekend we wrapped up a bunch of loose ends and tried to take it as mellow as possible, because I am unlikely to enjoy another weekend "off" until probably the fall, if then. My new days off will be Tues and Weds, which is actually kind... Read more
