Ooooh. Long time no blog.
Trying to get February ick out of my system, so I'm going to work on getting some movement back in my life. Tom and I are going to Cancun at the end of March, with some other friends who are also celebrating a 20th anniversary this spring. We ... Read more
As I was dragging my sorry tired butt up the stairs this morning to put my lunch in the fridge, it occurred to me that I haven't been doing the things that were working for me just a few months ago. I was feeling pretty good, exercising alot an... Read more
Chasing the Wagon
I've kind of fallen off the wagon here, and even though I've logged on every day, I haven't been doing the things that were working for me when I first came here. I stopped logging my food, my water, haven't even been going to the gym, which wa... Read more
Resting on my Increasingly Large Laurels
There is a conventional wisdom in recovery circles that "resting on your laurels" is bad. Okay, maybe it's not just recovery circles, maybe the whole concept of resting on ones laurels is universal, hence the existence of the phrase.

University Fitness Center Locker Room Good for 40-something Core Strength.
That is my headline for today...my newest revelation. I work at a university and work out in the fitness center at the Med School. While I am not the oldest nor the heaviest person exercising there, I am always amazed at how much younger and m... Read more
gotta get moving!
I started off the week with a bang...went to a turbo kicboxing class with some coworkers and it kicked my butt! I was totally worn out, but felt great. A little stiff the next day and WELL reminded that I am a good 10-15 years older than every... Read more
Some days it just works!
Granted, I'm wearing pants that have a little stretch to them, but for some reason, I just don't feel so much like I'm having a fat day today! Not quite sure I'm ready to suggest that I'm having a "skinny" day, but maybe a "reasonably fit and h... Read more
I'm not going to do the big resolution thing this year. There ARE alot of things I would like to accomplish, from cleaning out my dresser drawers to running a marathon, but I'm just not going to make myself or anyone else any promises about the... Read more
Add exercise, up the Hungry Factor!
Wow, did I eat yesterday! I was so hungry all day! I did kind of alot more cardio the past two days than I have been doing, so I guess that was the cause (I hope so) and not my old compulsive overeating demon visiting. I know the demon is not... Read more
Today the sun is peeking through!
I can actually see the sun right now! It's shining through some clouds right in my eyes! I have a feeling it won't last...whoop, there it goes. But at least I know it's there! I get SO icky during winter, and I don't want that to happen this... Read more
mini post Christmas boot camp
Wow, I totally overdid it over the past two weeks! I kind of knew it, and avoided the scale...but then I got back on there this morning and didn't have the "oh, I ate too much salt yesterday" or "oh, I've had alot of water so far today" excuses... Read more
What Was I Thinkin'?
I decided to bake cookies yesterday. And not just a few, either. I made six different kinds and buckeyes. Shudder. I only had one or two of each kind, but...yeah.
So I am writing yesterday off. Didn't do any cardio, either, but I hav... Read more
So I totally went off the deep end, food-wise today. I WAY over ate. Not sure what the deal is, except that I got up on the wrong side of the bed, and couldn't get settled down before the department Christmas party...and from there on out it w... Read more
Fighting Christmas Cheer For All I'm Worth!
I am trying, I really am, but I am afraid I'm losing the battle of keeping the "crap" ingestion in check. I don't usually think of myself as someone with an active social life, but it seems like every day I have some sort of Holiday Gathering s... Read more
OMG, I won!
I am so excited! I sat down to log my exercise points and then checked my email and I found out that I won last week's spark give away! I get a t-shirt and a fleece. I can't wait!
I'll take a picture of me in them when they come...
