Ready to kick 2014 to the Curb!

Sunday, December 21, 2014      5 comments

In preparing goals for 2015, I've spent this morning reviewing 2014. Frankly, what a crappy year! A few "highlights" of what went badly this year would include: 1) Forced to move by landlord selling house out from under us, into a locati... Read more

The coming year....

A few years ago, I was talking with a coaching client (I coach bellydancers! I coach them to prepare for competitions, round out their training, etc) sometime close to the end of the year. I'd asked her, as I'd asked all my clients, to give me t... Read more

wow. really?

Had one 15 minute discussion with my boss about some problems in the department I supervise. Mind you, I am not in his office often, and extremely rarely do I complain - EVER. There are other supervisors who are in his office several times a wee... Read more

Five months since I posted? wow, time flies. We won't say when you're having fun tho. Been a stressful first half of the year. But then what's new? Well, one thing is new...I started going to a personal trainer/training studio last wee... Read more

7 days of prednisone....and I'm so crabby today I can barely stand myself. Weight loss has, as expected on steroids, completely stopped and in fact I regained 2 pounds even tho being pretty much on plan. Today is allergy testing, and while... Read more

Week one - Done

Monday, January 13, 2014      3 comments

What an interesting week! No sugar/dairy/grain for a week was an adventure...but then the cheat day came and that was really an adventure! The nutritionist built in a cheat day - and I'm so glad she did. Said this is the day to eat whateve... Read more

Day 3

Friday, January 10, 2014      5 comments

I can honestly say, this is the longest I can remember sticking to a plan and not cheating. Seriously. While that's sad on one level, it's very motivating on many others. Interesting things (to me at least) are: With the removal of consta... Read more

Day 2

2+ days sugar free. I have been hit with a virus, so have slept a good portion of the day away - keeping cravings to a minimum. On track - even tho I feel like crap. go me! Kids brought home a pizza and I have to admit, I looked at the lon... Read more

Day 1

Wednesday, January 08, 2014      2 comments

I wonder how many Day 1's I've had? I suspect it doesn't bear too much thinking about. What I'm doing differently? I got a coach. A friend did a nutrition certification program at the local college and I thought, "hmm. I coach dancers... Read more

Day in Day out

Monday, December 09, 2013      2 comments

I may be quiet lately, but I'm doing it. Wearing my CPAP. Taking my meds/supplements. Eating more veggies. Workouts have gone from nothing for too long to hardcore dance/drill workouts 3 x a week that encompass a 45 minute 'warm ... Read more

Back in the Saddle

Saturday I was able to do the 5K at Sunriver Marathon for a Cause. I was signed up for the 10K, but after the back spasm it just wasn't to be. I'm glad I made it through the 5K and - after over a week of being out with my back - pleased to say I... Read more

Getting back to normal

Been a week since my back muscle spasm. Back is much better, tho not completely healed. pretty sure I'm not going to be able to do the 10K Sunday, tho I haven't completely given up. I might be able to make one loop (5k or about 3 miles)...... Read more

Learning self care

Things were going along. My walking was lagging a bit due to some commitments, but this weekend I was going to be back on it. Notice the use of the past tense, was. Then last night I pulled my back. I had the audacity to try something as r... Read more

Day in, and Day out

Tuesday, August 20, 2013      1 comments

Here we are, another week on the way. The scale is back down to 245. That sticky point. I work on 10K steps a day, and most days I've exceeded it, and some I haven't. It would be easy to fall into the self critical mode of thinking -... Read more

What's more important here?

Thursday, August 15, 2013      2 comments

Far too often, I am ruled by the numbers on the scale. Too many times, I've given the numbers the power to choose my mood, my feelings about myself. For months, I did not weigh at ALL...but there also was no success in that for me because withou... Read more
