Major Distractions Last Week
Thursday started out as a beautiful happy day. Then WH had a major gas pain. However, when he went to the bathroom, he got no relief. Instead, in a matter of minutes, he was doubled over in pain.
Since, he had blood in his urine, we were r... Read more
Just get up
I had one goal this week that I was serious about. I decided that I needed to get up as soon as my alarm clock sounded.

What's the message here?
Yesterday, I announced that I was going to exchange my skinny clothes for ones that actually fit.

Dumping the Skinny Clothes

Today's non-scale victory was moving past bad attitude, lack of motivation, whatever you want to call it. I really, truly, sincerely, adamantly did not want to go the gym. I did it anyway. Good for me!

Instead of Vacation Bible School, my church decided to sponsor a tinkering school for the children. We placed table after table of supplies and junk and told the kids to do whatever they want.
I signed on as a "expert" in fabric and sewing... Read more

It Makes a Difference
Call it the power of positive thinking.
I was away from Sparkpeople for a few months. When I returned, I could not exactly remember my password, so I had to enter a new one. I was in a "piss-poor" mood at the time and my password reflected ... Read more

Almost Above Average
So, today I spent an hour with Jacque, a personal trainer, and received my Fitness Assessment. I went in with the hope that it would kick start my program. Afterwards, I cannot say that I feel particularly inspired, but it was, nonetheless, inte... Read more
