Birthdays, conventions, passings, new adventures...
I hit the big 45 on Monday. I feel maybe 25... really. Getting fit and healthy has been the best thing I have ever done for me, and secondarily for my family. So being 45 now isn't a downer...
The first weekend in October was spent at Ar... Read more
In a writing mood...
Things are actually going quite well. I have dropped a couple of pounds, so I'm pretty much smack in the middle of my desired weight range. I am very happy about that.
I have been really pumping up my exercise, my eating has been over c... Read more
Commitment & Consistency
While on my run today, I saw a young man, certainly much younger than I, very obese standing on his front step, smoking. This combined with one SP article I read this past week about how people estimate their weight one classification (ie. obes... Read more
Can I get 100 SparkPoints today?
I've really had an incredible couple of weeks. I'm sparking strong and feeling great, even though work has been stressful. My personal life has chilled out a great deal and that has been a plus.
I am so looking forward to 3 days off! Sle... Read more
2 Years in Maintenance...
I just realized that I have been in maintenance for 2 years as of today... I can hardly believe it's gone so fast. I weight about a pound more than when I hit goal 2 years ago... not too bad. I am really happy about this and there is NO WAY th... Read more

A lot of emotional stuff getting worked through lately and the stress of that is getting eaten and not exercised out. I know this. So I'm constantly battling this emotional stuff and trying to stay on track and it's not easy. But it's getting... Read more
Out of Gas...
I have been sleeping great every night and yet have been still feeling tired all week. I have no motivation to stay on track... and thanks you my dear hubby, I realized why last night.
This is one of those stretches where I work 12 days st... Read more
...I'm an emotional eater...
Nearly 2 years into maintenance and I just figure this one out. DOH! (ala Homer Simpson)
I have been having some emotional turmoil going on the last few months and on many an occasion, I have found it quit... Read more
Well the weekend was fun, but...
the whole diet and exercise thing fell rather apart. No counting and I didn't exercise much... not proud of it, it is what it is and all I can do is restart now. But better momentum is sustaining me now.
Don't know how things will go this... Read more
Musings on fitness, fatness & fandom... and self-perception...
I went a sci-fi/fantasy/gaming convention this past weekend. It was a wonderful time, so much so, that we plan to drive in Indianapolis next year for 4th of July weekend. The people were great, the event was great... but I still come away rath... Read more
Great weekend!! and not too bad a week overall...

I didn't make all of my goals 100%, but I feel I did pretty well on my firs... Read more
Pretty good week so far...
I'm not 100% on my stated goals, but I'd say I'm about 95%. That is good.
My calorie burn is almost 1100 for the week already. I have been short of 10K steps 2 days and exercise 1 day. Not too bad. Jillian Michaels vids are at 3 so far... Read more
I got off my butt (I almost said 'lazy') and exercised @ lunch. One of my 30DS installments for the week. Felt great once I was done.
I have already conquered the fruits and veggies for the day... minestrone soup is veg loaded... and I ha... Read more
New goals set!
I was going to reset my goals last night, but I was too wiped out.
I am feeling better this morning, so I have it all set to go. The only one I took out of my list from the other day was the committing to 2 shorter Jillian Michaels vids 2x... Read more
