You win some, you lose some...
I have discovered that while one is on time off of work it is very easy to track foods and exercise and all those things... but when one returns to work and real life.... eh, not so much. *grin* While I may not be writing down every single thin... Read more
Feed me, Seymour!
I have discovered that being constantly hungry does nothing for my state of being.
Today I have been hungry, and very restless and grouchy with it. I made a proper breakfast. I had a healthy snack. I had a salad with good proteins for lun... Read more
Aren't we a whiny little VelvetAlchemist today!
Thing one I have realized about why I keep losing track.
Logging everything is a pain! Yeah, I said it. A PAIN. Seriously, picture me with a small green notebook in my left hand, a pen (a nice one) in my right, walking around my apartment loo... Read more
yesterday I re-affirmed my desire and drive to get myself back in shape. Not skinny, not flat-bellied, not perfect... just fit. To be able to run up stairs without getting winded, to fit all my clothes, to just be... fit. I drank water, I logg... Read more
Donut break over, back to work!
Happy new year! Unlike last year, I started this year off right by NOT being late to work first day out. How'd I manage this? By not having to work on the 1st because I am far too expensive for my store to afford paying me time and a half. HA! *... Read more
So it's come down to this...
I don't know why I bother jumping on the scale anymore. All it does is glare back in big red numbers and tell me that I'm doing things wrong. As of five this morning I have officially reached my highest adult weight. I told myself I'd never be... Read more
Super pre-shrunk for your esteem-shattering needs!
Sooo... I bought a few Halloween tees yesterday because it's that time of year and who would I be if I didn't score more witchy apparel... and I picked up my normal size... and... either the clothing companies are totally screwing with me or I a... Read more
Couln't have said it better myself...
No surprise, I am a HUGE fan of The Oatmeal. What's The Oatmeal, you ask? The Oatmeal, AKA Matthew Inman, is a web artist who is just a wee bizarre who has several comics (and a book!) about struggling with "The Blerch" and dieting and why he r... Read more
Get the behind me, sugary carbonation...
As I sit here I'm consciously trying to keep myself from slouching. I am a horrrrrrrible sloucher. When I'm at my laptop I slouch. When I'm working at the computer at work I slouch. It's comfortable, it doesn't take effort, I just wanna slump ov... Read more
On the road again...
today I discovered a whole side of my town that I didn't know existed. :) And it only cost the city... what did the guy tell me? almost $700,000. *snerk*
I went to the Ren Fest with my family and my boyfriend on Sunday, and I had a great ti... Read more
Curiosity confuses the cat...
So, today has been a rather disappointing day (hole in favorite shirt, stood up by favorite sister, tonight's dinner ingredients spoiled, etc) so I decide to add further insult by attempting to calculate just what my ideal weight should be. Wha... Read more
GRR. Just... grr.
So I know I've gained weight. But I haven't weighed myself in a while, and my favorite pair of jeans have been hanging out in my sewing room waiting for a couple of strategic patches on a couple of weak points. Yes, the ... Read more
Take THAT, medical anxiety! :P
I did it! I passed! Hot Diggity Daffodil! (Yeah, do the Bender! Everybody do the Bender! *robot dance*)
Today was the day, returning to the doc's to see if my BP was off due to meds or nerves... The last three weeks have seen an average of... Read more
Those Puppy Feels
It's amazing what a car ride and a walk on the beach will do for my disposition. *grin* I feel like a puppy on the Best Day Ever with my favorite human. I woke up this morning feeling awful, phlegmy and sore and raspy. I got halfway dressed an... Read more
Y u no budge, scale?!
I confess myself... irritated. There's really only so much baked chicken I can handle, seriously. *snort* So, I've been eating healthier, keeping up with walkies... well, save for the last couple of days because my sinuses went seven kinds of ha... Read more
