Okay, so I don't really need an answer to that. I already know why. For me, when I go to work every day, I know what I am eating for two of my three meals. Breakfast is usually something quick and easy (generally toast with PB and a banana) a... Read more

I screwed up. I went out to lunch with some coworkers. While I knew I didn't make the best choices, I thought I had done better. Instead, I ate my entire day's worth of calories in one meal. I still have to have dinner tonight. I have 43 ca... Read more

I live in the Pacific Northwest, where snow is general rare. We usually get a a few inches a couple times a year but nothing major. At the moment we have 8 inches, with a good quarter inch of ice on top of it. Not much fun. I don't drive... Read more
160, or why you shouldn't weigh in daily
Tuesday, January 17, 2012      1 comments

I have very good evidence that weighing every day is bad for a person's sanity. On Sunday I was approaching the 160 mark, my first milestone, and the most major one. See I have dieted on and off for a year or so and have never been able to... Read more

I have fever. Baby fever. My son is 5 years old and will be starting school in the fall. It does not seem possible that 5 years have gone by since I held that little baby in my arms. We had talked about having another child, but before that ... Read more

So I posted this on my personal blog, but it seemed like a good idea to post them here as well. Most of these are not health related, but they are still things I want to accomplish: 1. Read 60 books. It's a lot, but I did 54 this year. W... Read more

This is my yesterday post, so bear with me. It was a busy day! I did pretty good with food, which makes me happy. I did over indulge in french fries at dinner. (I promise, I do not eat this much fast food normally. It has been an off wee... Read more
