...this has been a year of "ups" for me, as in life hanging not lefts or rights, but ups... things that take you by surprise and make you reevaluate your life... Some of my "ups" have been very personal and intense, some have been with my ... Read more

Almost a month since my last entry... whew!

Thursday, July 02, 2009      2 comments

Well, I luckily haven't gained any weight beyond a typical 1-2 lb fluctuation in the last month... especially since I have been routinely wandering off the reservation regarding my eating (which I'm now trying to reign in) and falling off the wa... Read more

Can I have ear infections for $100, Alex?

Saturday, June 06, 2009      2 comments

I'm 99% sure that is what I have. I ran it through the Web MD symptom checker and that was consistently top of the list. So I have been home treating with nasal rinses, echinacea & goldenseal herbs and rest. The fever finally broke over... Read more

Not a good week for exercise...

Friday, June 05, 2009      3 comments

Well life has totally caught up with me this week... the night I'd planned to take off, Tuesday due to having a friend over for dinner was fine. I just didn't plan to get sick with whatever I'm sick with... I'm dizzy, have a fever and feel fati... Read more

Emotionally all over the map... and maintaining in the midst of it...

Wednesday, June 03, 2009      0 comments

I have been on an emotional roller coaster for sorts for the past few weeks... great one day, bad the next, great the next... it is very hard to explain. I have had the chance to really reconnect with one of my oldest, dearest friends recen... Read more

Saturday, May 16, 2009      1 comments

During my jog this morning, I had a comment by my good friend Jessica pop into my head... we had been talking the other week and she was being concerned with being overweight and I said that I had my own body image issues (saggies, stretch marks... Read more

The H1N1 Novel Flu Virus has died down for now... so we are not at high alert right now, but surveillance efforts are still increased mainly due to the fear about the mutations this flu virus will inevitably undergo... which could be good or bad... Read more

Hip better... and *DOH*... today is 8 months in Maintenance!

Despite the tough week, this is a great thing to realize! I actually managed to do Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred level one today and that felt GREAT... I am having to ice my hip a little bit. I'll walk later to hopefully get in my 10K ste... Read more

An incredibly hard week...

Saturday, May 02, 2009      1 comments

By the time I got home last night, I felt like I'd been beaten with a baseball bat. There was very little downtime at work... with the rise of new flu and a pertussis (whooping cough) outbreak spilling over into the county I work in, I was very... Read more

Reflecting back again...

Being chosen as a featured motivator earlier this week was really cool and yet I don't feel I've done that much... just kind of decided on my course and followed it until I was done. It was hard some days but overall, it was what it was. In so... Read more

Thanks for all the fish!!

If you are a Douglas Adams fan (author of The Hitchhiker's Guide Trilogy), you will get the reference there... I'm certainly not saying So Long like the dolphins did, though. I have been active on SparkPeople for a year as of Saturday, even tho... Read more

That's a pretty succinct summation of my Easter weekend. We really don't celebrate except as a secular holiday... but we do have the family together. Saturday I went to St. Louis with a couple of girlfriends and we took pictures in two his... Read more

Spitting into the wind... and other random thoughts on a blustery day...

Saturday, April 04, 2009      2 comments

I've had a great exercise day today... got up and did 30 day shred after breakfast... and then this afternoon did 55 minutes of run/walk with my Podfitness. (Still love it! You can currently get prepaid cards on Wal-Mart for $1.97 for 6 months... Read more

San Diego... there & back again...

Wednesday, March 25, 2009      4 comments

Well, I have discovered my inner beach bum... well a healthy one anyway! The trip to San Diego was fantabulous and not nearly long enough... but well, we still made the most of our short time there. All flights & car travel went smoothly, ... Read more

Thimking...

It's very weird, I have been in maintenance for 6 1/2 months now and am just realizing that I must have had my mother's birdlike metabolism (very fast, that is) buried under all that fat all those years. She was always tiny and moved around wit... Read more
