New Year. Try again.
I am entering this new year feeling pessimistic, but determined. It feels like the older I get the less and less my body wants to change for the better. I got the Christmas splurge out of the way and have been relatively stagnant for a couple ... Read more
Well I caved...
I managed to complete seven days of green juicing and got too tired of it. It is really a lot of work and the amount of compost created was astonishing. I was producing two ice buckets full of waste a day! Anyway, yesterday I had to eat a sal... Read more
On Day 7 of Juicing
I am on the cusp of completing the first week of a juice cleanse inspired by the documentary Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead. So apparently I should be done with the major detox phase and I do feel like I may have finally rounded the corner. Yester... Read more
Day 4 of No Processed Food Complete!!

Recovering from Saturday Wedding Reception
I went to an outdoor wedding reception last night in the Wisconsin Dells. It was a nice affair, the rain was pretty hard and heavy for about 30-45 minutes, but the tent held up quite nicely. I wore my risky "wedge" soled sandals. They look go... Read more

Our local YMCA is putting on a triathalon for little kids. My 4 and 5 year old are participating and it is a little overwhelming for them, but I think they will have fun. Tonight they had their first practice (swim across the pool, bike ~1/3 o... Read more
Not a Great Week
It was not a great week for me. My son started out with a cold which I caught. It was a cold unlike anyother. I was so worn out, sore, stiff, achy, and tired. I slept for 12 hours on Thursday. Today I am feeling a little more energetic.

Heading out of town for the weekend.
This week I finally kickstarted myself back up after running on autopilot the last couple of months. I did pretty good this week and never strayed from my diet choices, drank at least 8oz of H2O/day, and exercised every day (except yesterday). ... Read more
I still hate getting new clothes.
I am always considering myself in transition and will hopefully not be this size forever. That is why I hate getting new clothes for myself. My job is now transitioning into "business casual" and I have to get some new clothes. I really hate ... Read more
Feeling Cautiously Optimistic
I have a habit of going through bursts of exercise and then burning out and I stop working out. I am starting another burst but am trying to go slow and not burn myself out. I have so much weight to lose and have gotten so out of shape.

After today (96F), I may must have to cave in and turn on the AC. Since my husband is stuck at home job hunting, he must be miserable. I worked out at 4:30 this morning and I am dragging. I need to get to bed soon, but it is miserable in my h... Read more
