Back to Work
I went through this a few years ago. I started exercising again first, but not much seemed to happen. Indeed it seemed to go backwards.
That's the case right now. I got a Nintendo DS for Christmas, and when I can tear it out of the baby'... Read more

Signing off for a while
Well, it looks like I'll be moving over to the Babyfit sister website for a while!
I've had a lot of fun here, but I can't really keep track of both.
For the record, I made it down to 145! I'm back up to 147, now, but for a good reaso... Read more
Sugar and Spice
Went for my first bike ride in a long while. Boy am I feeling it!
Right now there's a definite scent to the neighborhood. Honeysuckle in some places, which is really sweet, and the sharp spicy tang of magnolia in others. I love magnolias... Read more
Swimsuit boot camp day 1

I stopped being hungry on Thursday morning and only started eating properly yesterday, finally remembering to get back on... Read more
Views from my front porch
Spring is definitely in full force here. This is a picture of one of our dogwood trees, set against the Carolina-blue sky. We've had a lot of rain the past few days and everything looks freshly scrubbed this morning.
Well, it's been a cou... Read more
What I learned from Scarlett O'Hara
Not the best week of my dieting life, nor my knitting one.
I got busy at the end of the week, first from going to retrieve my daughter in Virginia where she was helping my brother and sister in law with a new baby, and also from deciding to... Read more
One baby sweater...check
Well, the baby sweater is about done. It does need to be blocked and I need to find buttons for it. I have heard that they think the baby is a boy and they KNOW that he will be an NC State fan. Therefore the sweater is red and I'm seeing if ... Read more
I think that I shall never see...
North Carolina does spring right, taking a full three to four months to wend its way through the season. When I lived in Syracuse, spring was the cold rainy season between the mostly snowy season and the warm rainy season. When we lived in Hou... Read more
30th active day, first blog post
It would appear that today is my 30th active day, since first joining in (I think) June 07.
It's time to get off the bench and get into the game.
It's time to get out of fast break stage 1. It's time to start exercising more regularly... Read more
