Focus on the positive

Tuesday, April 01, 2008      1 comments

It's my sister's birthday tomorrow. I agonize every year about whether to call or not. And I inevitably call. My sister is one of the most negative, mean-spirited, down people I know. She's a master of the back-handed insult. On the s... Read more

How my injured foot helped me break my plateau

Tuesday, March 25, 2008      4 comments

I've been pretty much on a plateau since July 2007. That is 8 months. I lost my first 40 lbs from January to June 2007. In June/July, I lost 5 lbs without trying. I spent August in Italy, and came back about 3 lbs over. I quickly lost that.... Read more

I just ordered a new dress. (in the link) I am one of many teachers being honored at a service award dinner in ten days. And I just don't own a dress appropriate for the occasion. I've ordered a few dresses and sent them back - mostly be... Read more

Does this officially make me a jock?

Thursday, February 21, 2008      3 comments

I have a sports injury. I kind of overtrained (albeit in the wrong shoes). I went to a sports medicine clinic. My prescription is to wear running shoes with metatarsal pad inserts, and ease back on the distance walking for a bit. (And ice an... Read more

It was a gorgeous day, with a clear blue sky and moderate ocean breeze. I walked from the far west end of the waterfront to the new marina on the east end, about 2 miles. Shopped, had a snack, walked back. It's February but warm here. People ... Read more

PROUD: I cooked dinner for DH and myself last night. He had the greasy Italian sausage cooked in marinara with extra vegs added, over whole wheat pasta. I went to the extra trouble of cooking myself a boneless skinless chicken breast, eaten w... Read more

All 750 feet of it. All one mile of the road. All the switchbacks and turns and curves and steep climbing. I just decided that today would be the day. This was it. I was gonna tame that hill and make it mine. I fueled up with an apple,... Read more

Today was a hill day. So I drove to my challenge hill, and decided to start by driving the hill and clocking the miles. Turns out the road is all of .9 miles - yet it goes from sea level to 750 feet. Can we say steep? Sunday, when I star... Read more
