Size 4 that is. It may have something to do with the fact that I've gotten out the summer clothes and am still the same size I was last year, but my motivation to lose has really increased lately. I remember thinking then that I would need some... Read more

Sometimes it's just not a good idea to click on the 10-day forecast button on the weather website. They're predicting rain and cold weather for the next week and a half! I take that back - the sun is going to shine on Tuesday - or maybe Wednesda... Read more

Just one more week of March and it looks like I will survive! My schedule at the language school eased up a bit due to some cancellations. Having the 5% Challenge as a focus has also helped - my team, the Firecrackers, are great encouragers. We ... Read more

Yesterday I was looking for a suitable photo to share on my blog. I did a google search for "scream" and there were a bazillion choices, dominated, of course, by Edvard Munch's famous painting (waving at Claudia!). I thought this was more ... Read more

The Winter %5 Challenge ended yesterday. I ended up with a 2 pound overall loss. I lost and gained and lost and gained and lost that same 2 pounds over the 8 weeks of the challenge. But I've decided it's gone for good now! It was fun gettin... Read more
