Feeling Tired... but Not?

Friday, April 27, 2012      2 comments

It's funny... I feel kinda' tired today, which is probably not unusual for a Friday. End of week, busy stuff going on, so ready for the weekend, right? But I realized that even though I'm feeling tired - and this has CERTAINLY been a hellaciou... Read more

Thursday Thoughts

Thursday, April 26, 2012      1 comments

My brother is having an endoscopy today. Hopefully they can put a stint in to keep the exit from his stomach open and he'll be able to eat again. I am still very committed. Went to the gym last night after I left the hospital. Worked o... Read more

Are You a Commitment-Phobe?

Wednesday, April 25, 2012      2 comments

I was thinking just now... I have been making better choices for myself now since the 1st of March - almost TWO MONTHS. The longest I've ever had a streak like this was for THREE MONTHS, and I'm excited because I KNOW that I'm going to beat tha... Read more

My baby brother is 48 and dying of advanced colon cancer. He came to live with me a week ago and I have cherished our time together; but I don't think I had a clue how hard this is really going to be. I was at the hospital with my brother unti... Read more

Love You Just the Way You Are

Monday, April 23, 2012      3 comments

Last night I was on a date with a newer guy and he was cooking stir-fry. I jumped right in to help, which was really fun, but gave me a chance to introduce the new healthy choices I was living. He said, "But I think you're beautiful just the w... Read more

Things started super today because I went to bed with "get up and go to the gym" on my lips. And I did! Jumped up, put on workout clothes and went to work out. Came home and made a healthy breakfast THEN went for a walk with my brother and Li... Read more

I Can Eat Again!

Saturday, April 21, 2012      1 comments

Every once in awhile, my stomach gets stopped up by something - a continuing byproduct of the gastric bypass surgery I had in 2001. It sucks - because I can't eat and sometimes can't even drink at ALL without immediately getting sick. So I get... Read more

How Many Calories Do You Burn Having Sex?

Thursday, April 19, 2012      8 comments

LOL - Got your attention, didn't I? (More about that headline in a minute.) Yesterday was a great day! Got back into control and ate WAY under my calories (probably too far, but I was distracted...). Did only 30 minutes of fitness by walking... Read more

Depressed Yesterday

Wednesday, April 18, 2012      4 comments

Feeling good today, but wanted to make sure I logged about my feelings yesterday so I can see if it's a pattern. I used to have those "one or two days a month" where I was SO DEPRESSED for no good reason. It was like I could almost feel someo... Read more

Hope this works. This is a youtube video of my band from the other night. I remade the dress into "Renaissance Metal" by putting some Italian Renaissance sleeves I made on a modern black dress and dressed it all up with some pearls. Read more

Feeling REALLY Rough Today...

Tuesday, April 17, 2012      11 comments

Had a good day yesterday. Stayed within my calories, got in 85 minutes of fitness. But this morning I feel like CRAP. REALLY exhausted, my right knee hurts, and I have a spot on my right foot that's infected. Stupid foot - I had moved my off... Read more

So my brother has moved in! We had a nice smooth transition and I think he is happy to be with us. He said that Saturday night is the first time he has not cried himself to sleep in a long while. That means so much to me! So now we focus on ... Read more

Just... a Good Day!

Saturday, April 14, 2012      1 comments

Did some HEAVY cleaning and furniture moving last night. At the end of three hours, I was TOAST. So I left the mopping and vacuuming until this morning. I didn't sleep very well, but was wide awake at 6:30 am. So I hopped up and finished the... Read more

Stop Thinking Like a Fat Girl

Friday, April 13, 2012      4 comments

I noticed something the other day. I THINK LIKE A FAT GIRL. When I'm starting to go down stairs, I think, "Now go slow, be careful, hold the rail - your knees are going to hurt." So consequently, I overcompensate and don't challenge my leg mu... Read more
