How to have a happy, healthy birthday, SeppieSusan style: Step 1. Treat the morning like a normal Saturday. Spend a bit of extra time in bed cuddling in the morning. Go to the gym, where when you scan your gym card instead of hearing the... Read more

Birthday Weekend

I'm turning 32 tomorrow. Sigh. I'm getting farther and farther from 21! But you know what? I am liking my life more and more the older I get. :) My weight has been going nuts lately - it stayed the same for a long time, then down half a po... Read more

Odd but effective party strategy... and gym pet peeves!

Monday, December 14, 2009      18 comments

Yesterday I went to a daytime party where there were tons of refreshments. I have resolved that it is easier for me to say no to everything than it is to try to limit myself to a little bit, especially nine weeks before my wedding! So I decide... Read more

I've lost 11 pounds in the first 5 weeks, and I have 9 weeks, 1 day to go! I just keep doing all the common-sense healthy things to do, and they just keep working. Simple. :) A couple anecdotes: On an outdoor run a few days ago (I ran... Read more

Just Saying Hi :)

Thursday, December 03, 2009      18 comments

It's been a while, so I thought I'd say hi. Thanksgiving went well here and my plan is very solid right now. Wedding plans are coming along and so am I, toward my weight-loss goal. Today, right after lunch, I started to feel sick. I stuc... Read more

I'm posting links to the recipes I will make this weekend, mostly for selfish reasons to make it easy to find these recipes in Internet-land again when I need 'em! Beef barley stew (I hardly EVER eat beef, but what a nice seasonal treat thi... Read more

It's Tuesday afternoon and I have the next five days off, YAY! (AND we have a teacher-only day on Monday the 30th and a teacher-only afternoon on Tuesday, Dec. 1...these kids have it so good!!) Even though I stuck to a somewhat normal sleep... Read more

Good Mood :)

The weather is gorgeous, I got a great night's sleep, and I am just feeling fantastic today. At noon, which is in just over two hours, there's going to be an open house at my condo, so I got up early and I've been cleaning and it smells great i... Read more

Great Workout

Tuesday, November 17, 2009      11 comments

My weight loss has totally stalled, way too early. After losing about five pounds last week, I gained a couple back and haven't lost any more. Plus, the first couple of pounds I lost had been from a temporary gain anyway, so I sort of haven't ... Read more

I lost five pounds this week...even though I lost a lot of ground these past few months, I am on track to be at my best for my wedding (and honeymoon). I am not ignoring the fact that yo-yo dieting is unhealthy and that I need to find a way to ... Read more

Happy Friday!

Friday, November 13, 2009      10 comments

My weight was up two pounds today for no reason but I'm not discouraged...fluctuation is just a part of life. Unfortunately, I didn't get my morning happy boost from the scale today, and then a coworker said one minor little thing at a meeting ... Read more

November Run

Thursday, November 12, 2009      4 comments

I went for a run today with ear warmers, neck warmers, and gloves - maybe I went a bit overboard - it was in the high 40s - but I'm getting excited about winter running (except running on an icy sidewalk - no thanks!). I mapped the run and it w... Read more
