Zumba Delusions
Tuesday, March 23, 2010      9 comments

How Did You Learn Portion Control?
Sunday, March 21, 2010      12 comments

You Can't Do Everything
Saturday, March 20, 2010      13 comments

Sometimes you have to make decisions. You just can't be more than one place at once - at least I don't know anyone who can. Today I wanted to go to my Weight Watchers meeting and I wanted to go to the YMCA for step aerobics/pilates/zumba and I w... Read more

Yesterday at the YMCA I was doing strength training: lat pull downs, squats on leg machine, seated chest press, rows, etc. When I was about give out and thought I couldn't finish a set, a thought just came to me, loud and clear: Marsha, Strong ... Read more

Recounting My Weight Loss Journey

I weighed in at Weight Watchers weekly, and my weight went up and down, up and down and down, and up and down and down and down. I didn't always feel successful. When I look at the lowest weight of each month rather than the weekly weight, I got... Read more
Did You See the Elephant Blog?
Thursday, March 11, 2010      6 comments

Maybe you can help me. I read it. I went on. But my mind kept coming back to the elephant. Now I can't find it. It goes something like this: the rider(driver) is the brain; the elephant is the emotions. The rider can keep the elephant goi... Read more

Yesterday when I wrote "One Down" I was talking about finishing the grant proposal that I'd been stressing about. Today my "One Down" is a good one, too. I'm back down the one pound I was over the weight I'm aiming for. I expected it to take 5 d... Read more
