New Year

Sunday, January 06, 2013      0 comments

I have to laugh at myself sometimes. Yesterday I went and had my nails done. I have never had them done before... so I'm having to learn the ins and outs of them. So far I think this is going to be the last time I have them done because they ... Read more

Winter chill

Monday, December 17, 2012      2 comments

Off and on I've been. At least I haven't backtracked too far. I'm still within a healthy range, but I don't want to ignore the gains either. I just had a birthday this weekend, and now my fridge is full of sugary yummies. Lemon cupcakes from... Read more

Summer Heat

Sunday, July 01, 2012      3 comments

I'm having a hard time. Since May I haven't been scheduled to work until 11, and with summer vacation for the kids, we've been sleeping in and staying up late. It hasn't been good for us. My energy has been nil, and I have been eating... crap... Read more

Needing to update

Friday, January 27, 2012      0 comments

I haven't been using the phone app as much as I thought I would. I wished it would track milage, because that was a good incentive to go just a tad farther. I read a weird food article on the dangers of soy, which did use questionable evid... Read more

Trying a new way

Friday, August 19, 2011      0 comments

I took a break from SP, and I survived. I decided to be nice to myself and update our phone service (switched providers) and so we now have new spiffy phones. I will be doing most of my SP from that now, and so I dropped the team goals. This ... Read more

Fighting stress

Wednesday, July 06, 2011      1 comments

My personal life has had its ups and downs, and right now its waaaaaay down. The good news is that I do have some support from my family and friends. And I have learned how to manage the anxiety build up. My kids are away from me right no... Read more

Little success

Wednesday, May 18, 2011      3 comments

I've been using my treadmill now that it's cleared off again. Instead of following the C25K program exactly, I've been using the calorie goal setting on the treadmill. It uses run/walk combos for 30 minutes, which is very similar to C25K. I w... Read more

Home Improvements

Monday, May 09, 2011      0 comments

Yesterday for Mother's Day we blew in the new fiberglass material into our attic. It desperately needed it, as the thickest it was was less than 2" deep. Now it's at least 18", giving it a R-value of 40+. I can already tell the difference bec... Read more

Back in the saddle

Friday, May 06, 2011      1 comments

I've been ho-humming it for awhile, not really tracking, not really putting an effort into this. I went back a couple of pounds, but that's not bad either. I'm still in my range of ok (normal BMI is a wide range), but I'm not getting rid of th... Read more

Swimsuit shopping

Tuesday, April 05, 2011      3 comments

Ok, I can call myself crazy all I want, let's see if you agree. I had this notion that I would crochet myself a monokini (a bikini with tummy coverage like a one-piece, but bare in the back). So I did. I used a beautiful red cotton and it... Read more

Where did my workouts go?

Monday, March 28, 2011      0 comments

So much for the C25K... I've stayed away a bit too long. I still will walk the one I signed up for, but since I haven't been trying, I don't think I'll really "run" the virtual one. Oh well. I have been stressed out, and I've been coping pret... Read more

There's always hope

Wednesday, March 02, 2011      0 comments

My life has been crazy and hectic. I feel like I've been sideswiped a few times over these last six months, and the stress has been at a new high. My weight and exercise haven't been priorities. When I do work out, I do feel better. I'm find... Read more

50 pounds gone!

Sunday, February 06, 2011      8 comments

Since I started SP, I have now officially lost a full 50 pounds. Yippie!!!! I can't believe how far I've come. I still have a bit to go, but I want to celebrate getting over that 180 hump since it has been a challenge. I went and switched up... Read more

January Review

Tuesday, February 01, 2011      0 comments

January was a hard month for me. I was able to maintain for a while, which I rejoiced. Near the end I picked up working out again, hoping that the scale will be nice. Nope, I ate more. So I'm actually a few pounds heavier, but that's ok. I ... Read more

Thank you resale sites!

Monday, January 31, 2011      0 comments

I like craigslist and bookoo, which are similar to each other. They're both basically online garage sales. I was able to pick up a treadmill, a NICE treadmill, for $75. I never really was a runner. Back in high school I did it because I had ... Read more
