Just get up

Wednesday, July 17, 2013      3 comments

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. It seems like when I sleep in, I enter a vacation mentality and it's unlikely that I'll get anything done. I have finis... Read more

I posted my new weight on Friday. I was down almost a pound. Usually, Sparkpeople rounds it up, so I was surprised that I didn't see it on my activity feed. I was looking forward to the pat on the back that that posting usually generates. This t... Read more

Today's NSV

Thursday, August 16, 2012      6 comments

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! ... Read more
