The Numbers Don't Matter
For years, I've battled with my weight, and with the motivation to try to get it off. As each new year begins, I am gung ho about exercising, about getting fit, and about being a better me. And for awhile, I keep it up. I diligently recorded ... Read more
Finding the Groove and Keeping It Going
As you may have noticed, I'd fallen away from updating for awhile. I seem to go in these cycles. For awhile, I was updating my blog, Sanity's Overrated, every day. I was just on top of it all. I even had daily challenges that I was giving my... Read more
Butt Kicking Cleaning
I wanted to write a whole lot about today, but frankly, I'm tired. But I'm tired for a good reason. I spent 5 1/2 hours cleaning my bedroom. I did the deep cleaning that it needed, changed the bedding, threw away a bunch of things I didn't wa... Read more
Today has been a day!
And a productive one at that.
I spent the morning and early afternoon taking care of online things. I finished my daily challenge for today, then did some blog updating, updating some things on SparkPeople and some Facebook things that I w... Read more
Where did this motivation come from?
It's interesting how different my mind has gotten over the last year or so. For the longest time, I found it easier to procrastinate than to do the things that I know needed to be done. Instead of focusing on the cleaning, I would whittle away... Read more
New Year, New Me
Yep, it's been over a year since I last updated. I haven't been keeping up with Sparkpeople for awhile, though I have been finding my way toward a healthier me. I'm under 240 pounds, having lost over 30 from my heaviest. I'd gotten stalled re... Read more
Wagon, here I am again
My willpower has been nil for the last several months. I've had great intentions - while the weather's nice, I'm going to walk. I'm only going to buy healthy things to eat. I'm going to keep on top of cleaning once it's done the first time. I... Read more
Plans, and how they break
Two months ago, I said I was coming back. And I haven't been back since. I'm not sure if I really have an excuse. It's just been one of those summers. But I'm hoping that this will be an honest to goodness change.
Things are starting to... Read more
The important thing is getting back up
I've fallen off the wagon, hard. I've gained back weight that I was hoping was gone forever. Not exercising, driving through fast-food, snacking rather than eating... I've done it all over the last month and a half. And I'm paying for it.

Waiting for the Lemonade
Things here haven't been ideal. Not by a long shot. And I'm just waiting for some of the other ingredients to come down the pike so I can turn these lemons into lemonade.
I've had to move into my dad's house for a couple of weeks. He was... Read more
Change in Mindset, Time for a Reset
As I've posted earlier, April has been a SUCKY month. Illnesses, things going wrong, life beating me down... I'm tired of it. So, I'm trying to go into May with a positive outlook and a new plan for things. It helps that it's a beautiful day ... Read more
Things are... things
First, thank you EVERYONE who stopped by and offered support. I know I haven't gotten in to say so, but I really do appreciate it.
I haven't been eating well lately. I haven't been exercising. I haven't been taking care of myself the way... Read more
Just a Quick Update of Bad News, Then Sleep
It's been a bad week. A really, really, REALLY bad week. And I'm in desperate need of support. We found out yesterday that my husband has/had colon cancer. They removed a polyp that turned out to be cancerous. Today, he was bleeding again (... Read more
From bad to good
Yesterday was a horrid, horrid, HORRID day. It started when I found the brand new camera in the bottom of the washing machine (AFTER I'd run it, of course) and went downhill from there. The kids were on their worst behavior, I found out that 0... Read more
I have a blog entry that I want to write, but...
... it's late and I need sleep. I did just finish up posting about the same thing over on my blog, but because there are a lot of links in it, I don't want to just copy and paste it over. So I hope you can all forgive me this once for linking ... Read more
