Fear and loathing in mid-Missouri...
Honestly, I have been afraid to step on the scale here at work. They are checked for accuracy once a year by a fellow with actual weights that are meant to do just that. So our scales are accurate to 300 lbs+.
My home scale is much more f... Read more
Great start last week... then fell off @ the end...
But it's a new week! So we will just restart. I didn't count calories, but I did dust off my trust Leslie Sansone 5 mile walk last night... it was just what I needed, she was just what I needed.
I was amazed that I started with about 1350... Read more
Today's trick... cartwheels in Peanut Butter!
Actually, I have made it to day 4 of exercise. I'm only burning about 200-250 calories each day, but I am starting to rebuild my consistency.
Today was a treadmill walking day... but I am starting to put incline on that puppy, which accord... Read more

Well the State hasn't taken Spark away yet...
The State govt, through which we get our internet, has pretty much locked down access, but apparently SparkPeople is still considered a worthy website... YAY!
But anyway. I gained a couple of pounds back over the holidays. Done with that!... Read more
Looking back and forward.
2009... well if you've been following my blog, you know it's been quite the year for me personally. It's gotten increasingly harder all year to stick to my eating right and my exercise. December actually was the worst for that.
I am REA... Read more

It's been a rough year, as my friends know all too frakking well. Many of them have had rough years of their own.

Not a great week again...
My exercise so fell off the wagon this week, it's not even funny. Had a great start last Sunday, but I have a friend going through a crisis and she needed me several times this week... so I went to check on her 3 nights and got no exercise in t... Read more
What a week... H1N1, WIC & Camarilla, oh my!
This has been a nearly impossible week to get anything done, including exercise... had friends over two nights, which makes it hard for an evening exerciser to fit it in (waving hands madly). I also was borderline under the weather all week (ju... Read more
A few days off, Archon... lots of walking, finally heard from the Army...
Tonight is the last day of my short (5 day, which was part weekend) vacation... really it was a 5 day weekend. But it was very much needed. I have a pile of work to return to but that is okay... I feel somewhat refreshed and better equipped me... Read more
A new week... good 3.35 mile run/walk to start it out...
The days of summer are changing over to fall... I can so feel it in the air. I love fall, it's my favorite season and it seems that my life seems to get a new kick each fall, a new energy, the time to go in a new direction...
I really fe... Read more
Slow week... gotta get my butt moving more...
The journey really doesn't end with maintenance... it would be so nice if it did.
I haven't exercised all the minutes I would like... and I have eaten way more than I should be.
So again, back on the horse. I can do it.... Read more

Since last Wednesday, when we brought Miss M home, things have been lighter, brighter and more hopeful. She was diagnosed with... Read more
Just when you thought it was safe...
I've been under a lot of stress lately, I think that has been clear.
Thursday night/Friday morning, everything got ratcheted to overload. My daughter was threatening to commit suicide and we had to have her committed.
It's a long stor... Read more
