Home stretch!
Friday, June 17, 2011      0 comments

Just got to get through today, and then I am on the first real vacation I have had in YEARS. A whole week off! Yeah!!! It's not exactly going to be a relaxing vacation - lots going on. Andrew and I will be headed up to Rochester, New... Read more
Beautiful day!

What an amazingly gorgeous day we're having! Weather such as we're having - cool, sunny, no humidity - relaxes me sooo much. I can actually FEEL my blood pressure dropping. The bus was very empty on the way in to the office this morni... Read more

Sorry, no time for substantive blog entry today, so here's the bullet-point list: -I danced, literally, ALL WEEKEND -I ate, literally, NOTHING BUT JUNK. (not entirely true, but for me, even a little processed/junky food is enough to m... Read more
Peas, please
Thursday, June 09, 2011      1 comments

I have talked before about my garden, but I must reiterate: I LOVE MY GARDEN. Today, as a snack, I brought in a little pint container of sugar snap peas that my garden has been producing in abundance. These are peas that can be eaten pod ... Read more
Not Without My Cheese

I think that my switch to vegetarianism is slowly making me develop a lactose intolerance. It was not intentional for me to stop consuming dairy products; it just sort of happened. I used to be a milk fiend, drinking tons of it when I was ... Read more
Back me up on this

Wouldn't it be great to be able to log into Spark every day and have the first thing you see at the top of your page be a list of the REASONS why you want to lose weight? I think that it'd be great to have a daily reminder of the very speci... Read more
Why so resistant..?
Monday, June 06, 2011      2 comments

I grudgingly changed my ticker to report a one-pound loss. Most people do this with great joy - but for some reason, I felt like I had to give myself permission to do it... like the scale had to read the same thing two weigh-ins in a row in ord... Read more
Trying again!
Thursday, June 02, 2011      0 comments

Well, let's see if we can have a better day today - shall we? Yesterday was crappy on a colossal scale. I've no wish to repeat it. *~*~*~* Cleaned nearly all of the downstairs yesterday, and it felt good... it was the only way I coul... Read more
Today's Plan
Wednesday, June 01, 2011      0 comments

1) Work. Because, you know. Bills. 2) Eat only the foods I planned. I usually don't have any trouble with this, but I really fell off the wagon yesterday as far as unplanned eating; really didn't do too badly, calorie-wise, but still -... Read more
Yes, my inner child is a 12-year-old boy.

So I had to take Andrew in for his colonoscopy today. You might be wondering why a 28-year-old guy is getting a butt probe. Well... he's had some issues in the past, and he is getting them done in an abundance of caution. We did all t... Read more
Ground control to major TOM
Tuesday, May 24, 2011      1 comments

And I'm not talking about the song, either. Women know what TOM means. Men - just... go about your business. You don't want to hear about any of this. I guess I should have realized it would be a blockbuster when I had a meltdown... Read more

Having a really rough day. I can't seem to wake up, despite two cups of coffee. My leg is THROBBING due to Klippel-Trenaunay issues... ugh, really need to get this looked at by an expert, but that's going to involve getting an out-of-n... Read more
PACKING
Friday, May 20, 2011      2 comments

You know what the benefits of packing the day's food is? 1) I know EXACTLY what the calorie counts are; 2) I can sit and log everything in my journal at once and not have to worry about it for the rest of the day; and 3) The te... Read more
Better Oats!
Thursday, May 19, 2011      0 comments

So it seems Quaker finally has some stiff competition in the oatmeal market. My hubby-to-be - who does a lot of our grocery shopping - bought us a whole pile of different varieties of oatmeal by a company named Better Oats. Having now ... Read more
GAH
Monday, May 16, 2011      0 comments

So I just typed a really good blog entry that accidentally had html in it (seriously, we can't use html to italicize something??), and I got an error message saying, "Sorry, no html allowed! Click here to go back." I clicked the link - and... Read more
