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

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

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

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. My daughter threatened suicide... my son is back in counseling... it's been 4 months since I was sworn into the Army and I st... Read more

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

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

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

Sometimes I feel like I cash in my karma coupons all at one time. This has been one of those years... really... Since last Wednesday, when we brought Miss M home, things have been lighter, brighter and more hopeful. She was diagnosed with... Read more

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
