Just for today
Thursday, April 02, 2009      1 comments

OK, it really makes me mad that I have to log my food or I go nuts with eating! It also makes me mad that weight loss is so ...CONSTANT. I reached my goal, blew it, gained, and here I am again. I so want to be finished with this and just live a ... Read more
retreat, relaxation
Monday, March 30, 2009      1 comments

I was on a retreat this weekend that was wonderful and had all the elements I love - fellowship, nature, yoga, great teaching, and opportunities to reflect on where I am and where I need to make changes. The focus was on spiritual disciplines (p... Read more
so not good
Thursday, March 26, 2009      4 comments

I am not just off the wagon. I am horribly rebelling against the wagon. I know lots about nutrition, what I should (and should not) eat. Yet here I sit - exhausted despite plenty of sleep, busting out of my clothes, breaking out like a teenager ... Read more
back from vacation
Saturday, March 14, 2009      2 comments

I had a great time in Hawaii despite the awful vacation family photo that reveals how little I did to prepare! Now I'm ready to look ahead to summer (past birthday number 41 in a couple of weeks) with the ETK challenge! I'm also looking forward ... Read more

...or on the wagon.... or however you want to say "finally got my face out of a bag of Valentine candy." This is only day 5 of eating clean, but I already feel SO MUCH BETTER. I have spent much of the last month (ok several months) fe... Read more
weekend yoga workshop
Monday, January 26, 2009      3 comments

Whew! As a result of many people coordinating to keep my kids cared for and get them where they needed to be, I was able to spend all day Saturday and Sunday doing yoga! I attended a training workshop that was actually a repeat of one I took sev... Read more
no time like the present
Monday, January 12, 2009      2 comments

I was just doing yoga at the copy machine at work. I was just standing there anyway so figured I may as well do something constructive. At home, I have my kettlebells out in the living room - very visible, but to the side to avoid hurting anyone... Read more
pain=gain, but in a bad way
Friday, January 09, 2009      1 comments

OK, so I already knew that injury could lead to weight gain, since clearly it slowed me down. It also made me off-kilter emotionally which led to more over-eating and thus, more pounds. But I never thought that the over the counter medications ... Read more
Magic pants
Wednesday, January 07, 2009      2 comments

I have not seen the movie The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, but I have read all of the books in the series. I liked the books, but I may connect to them more than some people because I believe this notion of magical pants can really be true... Read more
Yay, 2009!

This is day three of cleaning up my eating - and I have been getting back at the exercise since a few days after Christmas. It is amazing how much better I feel when I can get moving each day. It'll take a while to get back into fighting shape,... Read more
still baby-stepping
Tuesday, December 09, 2008      2 comments

Hi everybody! Just thought I'd check in with a little update. I am still seeing the chiropractor way more than my wallet and I would like, but it does seem to be helping. I have been off the Aleve for going on 5 days with occasional discomfort r... Read more
Baby steps back
Monday, December 01, 2008      2 comments

Since my last blog was a little - er- negative, I figured I'd better check in. I also figure it is a good idea to help me crawl back into action. I have not been logging my food consistently for a few weeks but have been keeping up with it so fa... Read more
Who is SHE??
Thursday, November 20, 2008      5 comments

OK, so I am still feeling pretty crappy here, and mentally recounting my litany of excuses (I'll spare you today) but the bottom line is this: I was trying on jeans yesterday (bad idea, I know) and literally do not even recognize myself in ... Read more

So, I thought I had hit rock bottom last month, but apparently I still had a ways to go. I hope I am on my way back up at this point but so far the only "ups" have been bad: weight is up (11 pounds!), BF% is up (5%!), measurements are up - by pr... Read more
How many times?
Monday, September 15, 2008      3 comments

OK, for like the gazillionth time I am starting over. I just got back from a conference for work and I have a total food hangover and the extra pounds to show for it. I haven't registered yet, but I found a 4 Mile Run for ovarian cancer awa... Read more
