Appreciating What I Have
Monday, April 27, 2015      6 comments

Yesterday I was talking to a neighbor. We were laughing about things, and I told a story about how I woke up one morning a few days ago with what felt and looked exactly like a broken nose. Yes, my nose has been broken before so I know what it f... Read more
Go Hard or Go Home? hmmm...
Friday, April 24, 2015      4 comments

Most of my life I've done things in a very extreme fashion. A pendulum that swings so far in each direction that it's been quite a wild ride. But here I am at 51 and starting to rethink things. Don't get me wrong, for about 13 years, as long as ... Read more
No Weigh!
Saturday, April 11, 2015      5 comments

As I am trying to get my mind right after a few days of not really following the type of life I'd like to live, I'm not going to weigh in. No, I'm not in denial. I'm not unwilling to "face the music" at this time. I'm merely making a consc... Read more
What happened & Life I want to live - Ch 2
Friday, April 10, 2015      2 comments

Yet another diversion from my hoped-for series of the life I want to live. Or is it? Maybe I can tie them together, let's see. My last blog explained that I fell off the wagon, but not how. To make that quick, I'll just say that my schedule... Read more
wagons and workouts
Thursday, April 09, 2015      3 comments

I not only fell off the wagon the last 3 days, I took a pickaxe to it and left it in splinters. Today I'm going to try to fix my wagon. I'm so incredibly tired, probably a "hangover" from not exercising or eating decently. So the way to stop bei... Read more
What kind of life I want to live - Chapter 1 - Exercise
Friday, April 03, 2015      4 comments

I plan to do a short blog series about the life I want to live. This will serve as a "getting to know me" thing for my new Sparkfriends and teammates on I Matter, but also as a way of getting my own head straight, to remind myself that I do have... Read more
Balanced Scale Success
Tuesday, March 31, 2015      6 comments

I'm pretty excited to report that I have made it to the 7 lbs lost mark. Now, this may not seem like much to some, but it is to me. And, somewhat more importantly, it marks me going below a weight I haven't been below since November of last year... Read more
Boxing does it again!
Monday, March 30, 2015      3 comments

Aaaaaah, boxing! I love it. I haven't been able to do it for ages - not consistently for years now, but not at all for the last 7 months. I've had costochondritis, still do, really, but have learned to manage it so that I can do some things. Lii... Read more
Wrong to Right
Saturday, February 14, 2015      6 comments

This is the same thing I posted on the Balance Achieved thread in the I Matter team forum, so if you're a team member, you'll have probably already read this there. I have been thinking, wow, I'm moving so much more than I used to, but get... Read more
Strange Block
Monday, February 09, 2015      3 comments

There is a strange dynamic going on in my life right now. I'm guessing it's just adolescence making my (autistic) son do this, but...ok here it is: Whenever I'm getting ready to exercise, he begins to "need" all these extra things. Like he ... Read more
Do More Right?
Friday, February 06, 2015      3 comments

Until about a month ago, whenever I would forget to do my Sparkpeople spin for the day, I'd lose my streak, and it would make me mad. Mad that I forgot. Why? Why did I care so much? Today I came to the conclusion that maybe it was because it was... Read more
What, Again?
Wednesday, February 04, 2015      3 comments

Yesterday I ate half a bag of Trader Joe's Booty (the cheesy poofs that are like fluffy Pirate's Booty). Yes. Half a bag. And that's not all. I won't list it all, but dang, I did it again. Fell off the balance board of life. Why, when I do... Read more
Feb and stuff
Monday, February 02, 2015      1 comments

Um, did anyone see where January went? And the weekend, what about that? I totally forgot to weigh in. Wait, forgot or...knew it would be hideous? Yeah, my clothes have been feeling really tight for about 4 days. But the lack of weigh-in wa... Read more
New Team
Friday, January 16, 2015      3 comments

I may be totally crazy, especially when I take into account how insecure I can be, but I've decided to create a new team. It's called "I Matter" and here's the link:
/I_Matter I've wanted to do this for ag... Read more
How Will I Spend the Next 8.5 Years?
Thursday, January 08, 2015      5 comments

Why 8.5 years? Well, I'm 51 and a half years old. In 8 and 1/2 years I'll be 60. And if I spend it the same way I've spent the LAST 8.5 years, I'm going to cross over the 200lb mark. It's totally conceivable. I move less than I used to, and eat ... Read more
