Didn't make it to the gym today. I had to get the kidlet ready for her dance class and then go to a baby shower for my niece-in-law. I felt really motivated this morning (but not enough to get up at 6:30 to go to the gym so I'd be home before ... Read more

Old Friends

Wednesday, May 05, 2010      1 comments

Had a very fun day today. Went to lunch at a girlfriend's place. The five of us have known each other since elementary school. It's rather amazing really that we're all still in touch and pretty good friends despite not seeing each other a lo... Read more

Not a dang thing...

Tuesday, May 04, 2010      0 comments

I woke up with the intention to go for a swim but I got up too late. Good thing I checked the schedule on-line before I left or it would have been a wasted trip. I am not a good enough swimmer to justify taking up a lane in the lane swim so I ... Read more

Snow on May 3rd

Monday, May 03, 2010      2 comments

Yup, here in Calgary it is snowing. I managed to get the kidlet out to Fish Creek Park (a large provincial park within the Calgary city limits) for a bit of a walk before the precipitation started. Environment Canada says to expect 5 cm but my... Read more

Killer Salad

Monday, May 03, 2010      0 comments

In a good way. Romaine lettuce, spinach, avocado, bacon (leftover from this weekend), sunflower seeds, croutons and strawberry vinaigrette dressing. Lots and lots of calories but still somewhat in line for what I "spend" in the morning for bre... Read more

My Fat A**

Sunday, May 02, 2010      3 comments

Yesterday we went out to my Dad's to do chores, check the greenhouse and see his new Lazyboy chair. My Dad is an eighty year old widower who lives on an acreage. He has had some health challenges recently and continually threatens to move from... Read more

Thought you might like to see this article and pictures. This fellow lives less than nine miles as the crow flies from where I live. Nice to know there are so many critters in our local eco-system.

Hitch in my giddy-up

Friday, April 30, 2010      1 comments

I had a difficult time trying to walk this morning. Funny how that happens. Usually I'd just pop an Advil and go from there but it does work itself out. Interestingly it goes away and I didn't have any problem on the treadmill today. I wish ... Read more

How do I do it?

Wednesday, April 28, 2010      5 comments

Today I got a nice e-mail from someone asking me how I do it. I suspect that I have been a bit misleading with my tracker and other information because I haven't said much about my real goals. I need to lose lots more than what my tracker show... Read more

I owe BL an apology...

I usually have a bit of disdain for Biggest Loser but I have to give them credit because I was in tears most of tonight's episode. The cast went to Texas and ran a 5K with locals. They were all perfectly lovely with the people who came out to ... Read more

Firmly Past Goal #1

Tuesday, April 27, 2010      2 comments

Went in for my monthly weigh-in. I didn't go last month because it seemed I was sick most of March and didn't get to the gym very much. I was afraid that if I got a bad result it would totally demoralize and derail me. I was very pleased to s... Read more

Biggest Con?

Monday, April 26, 2010      6 comments

I'm feeling a little miffed. I happened across a poster at the gym this week for a "Biggest Winner" competition where you can win $5000 for losing weight. I went to the website a few minutes ago and for a mere $589 you can go work your ass off... Read more

This made me feel happy.
anned-lane-bryant-lingerie-ad I would *love* to see more ads like this in the media. A beautiful non-rake woman being sexy just as she is. Love it.... Read more

Product Review - Girlie Stuff

Wednesday, April 21, 2010      5 comments

I recently bought a package of my usual Always Ultra Maxi-pads and it had a sample of the new Always Infinity pads. LOVE them. The top layer seems to wick away any moisture so you don't have that "squooshy" feeling. They seem to absorb better... Read more
