The job hunt isn't going well. I've had two interviews, one for a permanent job, and one for a long term temping position, but didn't get either. I suppose I should be happy that I at least, finally, made it up into the interview rank.
An... Read more
Persistence. Sort of.
It's been over a year since my last blog entry. Wow.
And I put back all the weight I had lost and a bit more. I'd like to say it isn't totally my fault, and I think that is at least partially true. I got sick around the end of last summe... Read more
January 15th - primalish and water
I mentioned in yesterday's post that I had cooked a relatively primal/paleo dinner for the family. The husband seemed pretty happy with it, not being massively enthusiastic over the sweet potato hash, but happy enough to eat it. I'll play arou... Read more
January 14th - children. Sigh...
The girls spent most of the afternoon yelling at each other, enough that I ended up sending them both to their rooms *without* their computers. While they were up there I put the laptops away where they wouldn't find them, and they didn't get t... Read more
January 12th - disappointed 8(
My Tai Chi class has been cancelled.
The local parks and rec offers it regularly, but always during the day while I'm at work. Finally they had the beginners class in the evening, so of course I was the only one who signed up for it. Th... Read more
Wednesday, Jan 11th - plans
I think I have the husband on board with this primal/paleo thing. Elder daughter isn't squawking much, and younger will just have to deal with it.
I suggested to husband last night that this weekend we should go through the pantry and fi... Read more
Jan 9th - back (barely) below 178!
OK, I've been trying to up my fat and protein, and seriously curb the carbs. I started halfway through Friday. And I've lost nearly 3 pounds since then. I've been eating less I think, but not much, calories are still well over 1500 every day,... Read more
January 6th - hungry AND frustrated with this plateau!~
I'm starving today.
I've been at a plateau for months now, bouncing around the same five pounds, and it's getting old!
I've just been reading the stuff about and by Gary Taubes, which makes a lot of sense, especially when I compare it ... Read more
January 1st - a new year - new beginnings?
It's a new year, and I'm not making any new resolutions. But I am determined to continue working on losing this weight. Having people notice is nice, but sometimes it is actually a hindrance, because with everyone telling you how great you loo... Read more
October 18th - Found
Last night the husband found the registration slip we needed to send to the DMV with it's envelope. Right next to the computer where a) only he would have put it, because I almost never get to use the desktop at home, and b) where he has been s... Read more
October 17th - Back on track. Maybe
It looks like I may be getting back on track with exercise and food. I'm going to blame the colonoscopy last week, what with only clear liquids for over 24 hours and propofol. When you've cleared your gut that thoroughly it can take a bit for ... Read more
October 14th - frustration
The husband called my at the office today at about 3:35. To ask which of the girls had the doctor's appointment today, where it was, and when.
It was at 3:00.
It was on the calendar.
So now elder child's eye appointment is resc... Read more
October 9th - sad
Just a quick note today. I didn't get much done today although I had had plans to do either yard work or some campaign door-to-door. The latter involved not getting a call from the fellow candidate I was going to go with, and about the time I ... Read more
October 6th - TV and baking
This is short since it's late, and I want to get to bed soon.
I got elder child to her appointment and we've got a lab slip to test for Epstein-Barre, since after two weeks, she still has significantly swollen salivary glands, it still hurt... Read more
October 5th - down (a bit)
I was able to move my tracker down a pound finally. Only one pound, and it's been at least three weeks, but it was still movement in the right direction. I'm hoping with the Fall 5% Challenge, and Hogwarts getting into the fall term, that I'll... Read more
