Getting organized
Thursday, December 13, 2012      2 comments

I'm a teacher, as those of you who have read earlier blogs might have surmised, and this year has been a tough one so far. New school; new subjects (algebra, which I've never taught before, and 8th grade science, ditto); some tough kids (trying ... Read more
Back again....
Monday, December 10, 2012      4 comments

So, is it a good thing or a bad thing that I keep coming back to SP? Both, I think: Good that I keep coming back (so clearly I know what I need to do); bad that I don't continue with it when I should! Gaaah. BUT! This time I have hel... Read more
Day four of My New Goals: from EEEP to YUM!
Thursday, October 27, 2011      1 comments

I had REALLY weird dreams last night, so I ended up getting up late this morning. Consequently, though I did set up my dinner in the crock pot and packed my lunch, I decided to stop at McDonald's for breakfast. This was not my smartest move; I c... Read more
Two steps forward.... one step back.

So. I ate like crap today. We had a day-long training at work, and there was a lot of Bad Stuff on the table. I gave in to the mini-donuts, and the mini-candy bars, and the pretzel rounds. And my boss treated us to lunch... at Godfather's ... Read more
Day 2, on track.
Tuesday, October 25, 2011      3 comments

Okay, so I haven't exercised. But I HAVE followed my other goals: I've tracked my food and stayed under my calorie limit; I've been staying on top of my stuff at work; and here I am, blogging again. I even have been doing some cleaning I've been... Read more
It's hard to get back on the horse after falling off.
Monday, October 24, 2011      4 comments

I've been looking back over my last few (incredibly sporadic) blog posts, and I'm noticing a trend: promising myself I was going to get back on track, and then not following through. I did so well before. I lost fifty pounds--FIFTY POUNDS--... Read more
So. Hungry.
Tuesday, April 26, 2011      1 comments

So it's 1:55 p.m. I'm on the clock at 6:45, which means I eat breakfast about 6 a.m. My lunch is over just about 11 a.m. I'm off the clock in twenty minutes. And I'm STARVING. I do have healthy snack foods here--Fiber One bars, pre-portione... Read more
Norwescon! And getting back into the swing of things.
Monday, April 25, 2011      0 comments

I went to Norwescon this weekend--a huge sci-fi and fantasy convention near Seattle and not far from where I live. About seven of us got together, shared two hotel rooms, and just generally had a BLAST. Panels and costumes and parties, oh my! (Y... Read more

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, that's no lie. I got back on the Wii Fit today, and was horrified to realize that I've gained fifteen pounds from my lowest weight. Fifteen pounds. Now, here's the not-so-bad news: That's since September. So ... Read more
Two steps forward: I KNOW I can make this happen!
Monday, April 11, 2011      2 comments

Okay, I'm done whining. No, really. I'm done with feeling sorry for myself because I've backslid. I'm done with staring at my Wii and thinking, "Y'know, I should probably get back on that." I'm done with thinking, "But I've l... Read more
I need help.
Saturday, March 05, 2011      8 comments

I've fallen off the wagon--pretty thoroughly, and I need help. I need encouragement to exercise and track. I need reassurance that I'm not useless/worthless because I ate most of a coffee cake by myself (over three or four days, but st... Read more
Is it real food?
Thursday, January 06, 2011      3 comments

I've started making my own bread! I love it: not only the taste of "real" bread with no preservatives, but the fun of actually being in the kitchen, participating in this activity that's been a part of humanity for thousands and thousands of yea... Read more
New year, new condo, new ME.
Monday, January 03, 2011      1 comments

Well. Been a while since I've been here. The last blog post I made was back in October... and I wasn't doing a whole lot then! But it's time to get back in the saddle now. Back in September, I was pre-approved for a mortgage, and the last f... Read more
I'm baaack!
Monday, October 04, 2010      1 comments

Wow. It's been more than a month since I blogged. And just over a month since I even logged my calories and exercised! September kicked my BUTT . . . but in a good way. * I reached another goal: FIFTY POUNDS DOWN! * I BOUGHT A CONDO. No ... Read more
Five hundred calories over. *sigh*
Wednesday, August 18, 2010      4 comments

So, I had a bit of a splurge today. I ate well for breakfast and lunch, but then, instead of having my nice, healthy, well-within-my-calories dinner, I went out with my mom. And I had a chicken fried steak, with cornbread, mashed potatoes, gravy... Read more
