Wednesday, October 28, 2009      8 comments

It's been a tough couple of days as I get caffeine out of my life and my body. Today I returned my unopened refill of coffee to the store and started to feel victorious. On the bright side, I no longer feel like I'm pouring mud into my body. ... Read more

Tuesday, October 27, 2009      4 comments

I finally made the commitment to myself to give up caffeine. Not saying everyone should do this, but it's been awful for me even in small amounts. This detox period is pure headache and achiness. I'm a mess. I know the hardest part, after the... Read more

Suffering Through Caffeine Detox

Monday, October 26, 2009      7 comments

Yup, I'm at it again - trying to get off of coffee. Yes, there are ways to wean myself, but yesterday I'd had it for a number of reasons. I realized that I wanted out of the coffee syndrome, even though I don't drink that much. It makes me fe... Read more

I'VE BEEN BAD, AND THAT AIN'T GOOD

Sunday, October 25, 2009      4 comments

Yes, my last blog was the gateway drug, so to speak. Just a little dessert that I wrote about. Yeah, right! I've been at another turning point. I think it started the week I busted my butt exercising and didn't lose a thing. I said, "forget... Read more

Trying to Get Out of This

Saturday, October 24, 2009      10 comments

It's a REALLY tough lesson for me. The other night, I was out to see Lion King, and eating dinner beforehand at a nice restaurant. I ordered "a little dessert" and let myself know that this was not going to be the norm. However, it DID open ... Read more

Giving Away Two, New Free DVD's

Wednesday, October 21, 2009      11 comments

I'd like to help two people out who cannot get DVD's right now due to some tough times. I have two new DVD's that I am willing to give away. They are just not to my liking. One is a Leslie Sansone, and the other is a double Jillian Michaels B... Read more

My First Reaction? I QUIT! My Next Reaction? NOPE! I'LL NEVER QUIT!

Tuesday, October 20, 2009      8 comments

I worked my tush off last week, to the point where I thought the scale would applaud my blood, sweat and tears. (okay, just sweat) This morning, I bravely embarked on each of my scales. The first one - same weight, no loss. Same ole plateau.... Read more

Ah Oh! The Perils Of Thinking I Can Eat More Because I've Exercised More

Sunday, October 18, 2009      5 comments

I've really worked hard this week, and thought I was "entitled" to eat out of my regular menu today. I was out at a great Mexican restaurant, and even though I didn't overdo it, had more than I bargained for today. I'll have to watch out as I ... Read more

You'll Hear My Scream Far and Wide

Saturday, October 17, 2009      5 comments

Monday morning will not be just any weigh-in day. It'll be a day when I'll go nuts if, after all my very hard work this week, I don't see a loss and downward trend after a very long plateau. If I don't see a loss, every city will reverberate w... Read more

Friday, October 16, 2009      4 comments

While I'm thrilled about this website, I'm also unhappy with how much time I've been spending here. Working on the computer as a writer, I'm often on and off the SP site. In order to make this productive, healthy time, I've added a couple of t... Read more

Fighting the Remains of This Little Kangaroo Pouch

Wednesday, October 14, 2009      7 comments

Besides the scale, I'll know when I've lost the rest of these 20 remaining pounds by the disappearance of what I affectionately (sometimes not so much) term my kangaroo pouch. While it is very cute in Australia on the actual animals, not very c... Read more
