Not so much a train wreck as a flat tire...
I've been very sidetracked the last couple of weeks with getting moved yet again and with an ill-timed and bad eating house guest. I didn't really do terribly, but I didn't do as well as I can.
But, I'm not going to dwell on the past. I... Read more
Temptation thy name is cupcake!
Not really. I lied, but it made a decent title, don't you think?
My boss's daughter's birthday was yesterday. I spent part of the day going into town to get balloons blown up when the helium tank we had at work died. Then I had to go bac... Read more
Stick a fork in me...
...I'm done. I mowed for another 45 minutes tonight after work. Another night or maybe two and I'll be done for the week. Just in time for the weekend again so I can start all over LoL. Using the push mower is much more beneficial to my health... Read more
I woke up this morning and decided to make home made chicken and noodles for lunch today.
When I was a kid we would go every Sunday to my grandparent's farm. Us kids would run amok, climb trees, play with horses and dogs and bunnies and... Read more
Ambivalence, I know you're not my friend
I am probably the slackest person you know, well sort of know on here anyway.
As laughable as it sounds, I have struggled all week with getting enough calories in. Almost every night I've had to eat two tablespoons of peanut butter just ... Read more
Oh What a week!
I think every day has been a Tuesday this week. Everyone knows that Tuesdays are much worse than Mondays right? Everything that every other person in the world messes up on Monday hits my desk on Tuesday.
I had a house guest for a couple ... Read more
Pictures around the house
Here are a few pictures I took.
This is the "Hill of Death" mentioned in a previous blog. I am not sure these pictures really show how steep it is, but you'll get an idea.

It's been a crazy day. I ate a whopping 450 calories today. Nope, not a typo Four Hundred Fifty. It was pancake day so I built those for breakfast with a tablespoon of yummy real maple syrup. I had my healthy mid-morning snack, lunch and mi... Read more
Heck I don't know.
I have a new rule. I am not allowed to turn on the Little League World Series until I've done my workout. I turned the game on the last couple of nights and got distracted and didn't get my full workout in.
If I work out after 9:00 pm I... Read more
Grrrrr...I have muscles!
I got a pretty good workout in today. I did a jump rope cardio video which I hadn't done in a while, in addition to my other cardio. I'd forgotten how much I like that one. I'll have to do it more often.
I don't even try to figure out ho... Read more
Someone come help me up
Lawn mowing is done for another week or two, depends on the rain I guess. I am so tired! My back yard has what we affectionately call the "hill of death". It's very steep. My dog Luke likes to play Australian Cattle Dog back luge on it. He t... Read more
Well, it's Saturday. The end of the week. My grass is almost mowed. I got the front and the sides done before it started raining AGAIN. Maybe it'll dry out enough to finish up tomorrow. At least what can be seen from the street doesn't look... Read more
More observation than blog-Food, Food Everywhere!
As I was going over the meals I have planned for tomorrow, I was amazed at the amount of food on my tracker.
There's enough there to feed a small army I swear. This comes in at under 1,400 calories which leaves me 162 calories just in case... Read more
I'm not sure if it's caused by laziness, being a picky eater or if it's just the way it is, but I live in a food rut the size of the Grand Canyon.
Seriously, I could eat the same foods every day for weeks on end. Breakfast for example... Read more
The best laid plans of mice, men and food tracking
I was going to be a good girl, really. I had today, tomorrow and the rest of the week all planned out and tracked. Carbs, protein and fats in perfect harmony.
Then came the rain, the flood, the torrential downpour. I go home for lunch p... Read more
