I was feeling extremely stressed with the approach of Christmas... I had been trying to complete so many tasks around the house, but hadn't had a day at home with nowhere else to go or nothing else to do for over a month... so it just came down ... Read more

Feeling much better now...

Well, with the help of Zicam, sleep, an extra day off, etc... I feel much better and though, while still kind of draggy, got my health and my mood back on track. So what that my long list didn't get done... I will do what I can & to heck wi... Read more

I poured a lot of energy into cleaning the house on Friday night... hubby made me a red-eye (coffee w/ espresso) with double espresso shots or maybe more... so I was caffeine-powered and got an amazing amount done. Then Saturday, I managed ... Read more

Well, I'm up to nearly one year since I began this journey, and it will be about 4 months of maintenance too. January 1st for the former and January 2nd for the latter. I think I'm getting the maintenance thing down. I continue to track ... Read more

"There is no finish line..."

Tuesday, December 09, 2008      0 comments

That line came up on one of my Podfitness workouts and got me to thinking about how a new lifestyle has its only finish line the day I die, but is my new state of living and going forward. Then I was running on the treadmill the other day t... Read more

Wednesday, December 03, 2008      3 comments

Yesterday was the big 3 month mark in maintenance. It kind of got me to thinking... more just random thoughts, which I can hopefully forge into a coherent blog post. I'm at work today, it's been pretty busy, but there is little I can get d... Read more

Didn't exercise today... but I did count calories and did fine...

Saturday, November 29, 2008      0 comments

It feels very important to me to start being able to take the training wheels off. I had honestly planned to exercise, but got busy today and just didn't get it done. Oh well, so there it is. I did track calories and did fine. It was a g... Read more

I have fully jumped back into tracking and working out fully force today. It feels great... and I even went out to eat with friends for 2 meals! I'm so excited for the holidays to be here!! I did a 30 Day Shred session plus 37 minutes... Read more

Today just had to be a no-count, no-track day...

Thursday, November 27, 2008      0 comments

I tracked in the morning, but a potluck with friends just doesn't lend itself well to tracking. But since I have inadvertently lost a few extra pounds, down to the 142, a no-count day isn't going to hurt me. I actually had 2 plates of foo... Read more

This morning I woke up and got ready for church and was very distracted trying to get my Thanksgiving shopping list together so I would only have to make one long trip out of it... but I didn't get the list done before church, which was going to... Read more

Tough week, very busy, very tired, very unmotivated...

I have had blog entries in my head all week and just have felt mentally pressed ... so I am sure I had some great things to say, but can't promise I'll remember them here. Today I am totally trying to multitask... I have Christmas Cards set... Read more
