Under a dark winter's cloud
Thursday, February 07, 2013      0 comments

This is one of the worst winter depressions I've suffered in years. Last year the warmer winter temps allowed me to get outside a lot more. This month and the end of Jan has been too cold. If only I could get out under the open sky and breath... Read more
Back to work
Wednesday, January 02, 2013      1 comments

Well, at least I can honestly say that break didn't "fly by". It was actually very nice, long and I appreciated each and everyday. Over Christmas Eve and Day that was hectic. Enjoyable though. Then the girls and I quickly broke down all the ... Read more
Two more days of work
Wednesday, December 19, 2012      1 comments

Thank God! Then off for 11 days. I'm feeling fine with eating healthy and small meals on time. I have only had a few instances of being hungry or having mild cravings and I'm noticing once I change the recording in my head I'm getting over it... Read more
discouraging weigh in
Monday, December 17, 2012      2 comments

I weigh in each Sunday evening around the same time. Week 1 I had lost that first rush of water weight 6lbs to be exact, which was great. Last week which was week 2 I lost 2.5. So why in the world did I stay the same this week? I know all ab... Read more

Well, today was considerably better than the last 2 days back to work. I will say this, the week flies by on this job. Its great. I am officially half way through the work week and chomping at the bit for a nice, relaxing weekend full of holi... Read more
Tuesday ambivalence
Tuesday, December 11, 2012      0 comments

Just not sure how I feel today. I think I'm sort of cranky to tell you the truth but I don't know why. I also know that I do not feel like being at work today. Glad I get a nice long break though. I'm completely ambivalent with regards to th... Read more
Monday blues
Monday, December 10, 2012      1 comments

Yes it is possible to be "homesick" when at work. I am homesick today. I usually am a little bit on Mondays but its always worse after a fantastic family filled one. Saturday was amazing. My two daughters and I took my granddaughter Jenny, 3... Read more
Hungry today
Wednesday, December 05, 2012      1 comments

Didn't make my minimum required calories yesterday. That's happened a couple of times so far. I know that this can slow my metabolism and cause all sorts of other problems. My problem is that I am not tracking after dinner. I say I'll do it ... Read more
Not so good way to start the day
Tuesday, December 04, 2012      0 comments

Well, when I got in this morning the parents were still here. So of course all hell broke loose. The boys are complete brats when their parents around. Most people who work in the childcare or educational fields know that this is always the c... Read more
Feeling optimistic

Beautiful weekend in DE at dad's. My aunt and uncle came down and had such a nice time. I did wonderfully. I did not have any missteps except for the fact that I did not workout. Yes it seems as though that would be a big misstep but it isn'... Read more
Unsure about the day
Friday, November 30, 2012      0 comments

Ahhh deep breath in and out. I am not sure how I feel about today. Something went on at work with my client, the mom, that I didn't particularly care for. Eh, I think I'll get over it but it goes to show how my moods are swinging. I got pret... Read more
Feeling a little more hopeful today
Thursday, November 29, 2012      0 comments

Its true what they say about taking it one day at a time. I think that needs to be a big part of my own journey. I'm still a little tired today but I also went home (I do this on Thursday mornings when the boys are in school) and I got A LOT d... Read more
Rough Night
Wednesday, November 28, 2012      0 comments

So last night was a disaster. Yet I held to my eating plan. I wish I could be more proud but it was just a bad night. Dad was up and he was nice enough to make dinner, salmon and white fish with glazed carrots and baked potatoes. No problem ... Read more
Suprise, surprise, no wonder your so fat
Tuesday, November 27, 2012      3 comments

I have to admit that this is the first time I've tracked calories in writing like this. Oh sure I've counted them in my head and measured and it is just so much easier to fudge and justify when you ain't seeing it right, smack in front of your ... Read more
Second day, so far so good
Monday, November 26, 2012      2 comments

Today was a weird one. I got to work and went right back to sleep until 8:15a.m. Def not planned. By the time I had gotten the kids up I realized I was just too tired and groggy to get to the park for our usual 9am power walk and playtime. So... Read more
