I lost the only person who has known me all my life and loved me the entire time without exception. I miss you Dad. You were the best dad EVER. No daughter could have asked for more. I love you. Say hi to Gran for me.... Read more

Monday, August 13, 2012      4 comments

I had so much fun yesterday! I knew yesterday morning that we didn't have reservations at the tea house until 1 pm, so I decided to have a big, healthy, protein filled breakfast to keep me full until we ate lunch. This was a really good id... Read more

Bingley the Boston Terrier woke me up at 6 am this morning needing to go out. So I took him out and walked across the parking lot to a patch of grass. He paused briefly near a nice looking Audi, sniffing the ground. Out of the corner of my eye I... Read more

As any of you who read my blog regularly know, I have been on a water pill for about 2 years now to control high blood pressure due to a combination of being obese and taking birth control. This past week I have been fatigued, and had a constant... Read more
Need Heart Rate Monitor Recommendations
Thursday, August 09, 2012      7 comments

Does anyone use a heart monitor while exercising? I'm interested in one that shows heart rate plus calories burned. If I can't get one that shows calories burning that's in my budget, I guess I will just have to make do with an excel sprea... Read more

Okay, I know I'm crazy, but I had to share this with you guys. About a month ago the hubs and I were at the grocery store checking out chicken sausage. He is not the biggest fan of chicken but was willing to make the sacrifice so his wife ... Read more

I've been here 30 minutes and I already want out. I work for a jeweler who also sadly dabbles in music memorabilia. I say sadly because he's terrible at it. I come in and he has 150 old Rolling Stone magazines for us to sell on eBay. Indiv... Read more

Just a quick catch up blog, I promise. 1) I'm sleepy. 2) I forgot to take my pills today, oops! 3) Got asked at work today "What would we do without you?" and it wasn't sarcastic. (Hint: Things would rapidly fall apart. ;) ) 4) Told... Read more
Short Non-Weight Related Vent

Why is it when you express your opinion about something, all people can counter with is how much money the person made so your opinion is wrong? For example, I said on Facebook that I had read a couple of paragraphs of 50 Shades of Grey tha... Read more
Lessons Learned and August Goals
Tuesday, July 31, 2012      10 comments

July was a tough month for me. Overall I lost less than 5 lbs this month. Still not a bad drop, but almost half of what I lost in June. So I took a look back and here is what I found: In June I was in a lot of tooth pain. I didn't know it t... Read more

So this morning was a little bit crazy. I slept in til 8 (oooh, 8 am, she's such a badass), got some coffee and sat down to my morning routine of Facebook games and reading SparkPeople blogs. Around 9:30 I decide I'm hungry, so I eat two p... Read more

I've been down the past week or so, due to PMS then TOM and not seeing the weight loss because of water retention. I felt like I was failing, felt like I wasn't doing enough. TOM is winding down and I am shedding the water weight, so soon ... Read more

I've never been the type of person to make promises I couldn't keep. Broken promises drive me crazy, and I remember most of the ones people have broken to me, like the horseback riding my dad said he would take me to, but we never did. Silly, bu... Read more
Wow...what happened?
Tuesday, July 24, 2012      6 comments

No I did not fall off the wagon. =) Yesterday eating-wise was a good day for everything except sodium. I had snow crab legs, and since they are a rare treat I said "fudge it" when I saw the sodium count. Water? Eh, not so much. ... Read more
Experiment: Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred - Day 8
Sunday, July 22, 2012      7 comments

Okay, it's day 8 and I just finished my 3rd workout. May I just say: When Jillian says "Enough talk, let's get started!" it really annoys the *bleep* out of me. Anyhoo, today seemed a little easier, but I'm still having trouble doing... Read more
