Things are looking up...it's amazing what you can get out of life when you put a little effort into it!
Work's going great. It usually is, because I like my job and most of the people I work with. My supervisor is AWESOME. But I got not one... Read more
Back to the grind...
I'm back at work, now that the big move is over. My son started school this week too...he's a fourth grader. He loves school, even though he's changed schools almost every year. He makes friends really easily, and next week he'll be tested for t... Read more
The biggest changes are the hardest to make...
Well, it's been....eleven days since my last entry? I don't know that there's enough space available for me to write about all the changes in my life over the past week.
Last Saturday I left my husband. Literally took off and didn't look ba... Read more
Wow, it's been a long time since I wrote anything...so let's play catch up:
I ran my first 5k on Saturday, July 28. It was extremely hot and humid, but I managed to finish in 30:07. Not my best time by far, but given the weather I'll take i... Read more
How do you explain whales?
A friend sent me an email today that asked - "If swimming is so good for your figure, how do you explain whales?" I thought it was really funny.
This Saturday night is my big debut - my first 5k! I only started running in April, and I'm not... Read more
The "A" word and other issues...
My husband and I are having some issues, mostly trust-related. These problems haven't been helped with my weight loss and the fact that I now look great, I'm thin and healthy for the first time ever in our marriage.
I'm not sure what my hus... Read more
Best.Cake.Ever. (Healthy too!)
Okay, I've never been much of a cook, and learning how to cook stuff that's healthy AND tastes good has been a challenge for me. Tonight went really great...my first time ever cooking salmon, and it turned out yummy! I took the fillet and brushe... Read more
My life seems to be one big downward spiral these days...
Most of the problems I posted about before are still with us. Still don't have our mortgage situation resolved, and it's been nearly another month now. Mom's still in the hospital, a... Read more
To indugle...or not to indulge?
I feel like I've become the food nazi, especially when eating out. Tonight is my brother's rehearsal dinner, at a high-end italian place with no nutritional info available (but think full-fat cream, mozzarella, olive oil, etc). Not very diet-fri... Read more
My kitty is back!
I woke up this morning to some meowing outside....our kitty is back! She was gone for three weeks, and I had almost started to figure she was either dead or taken in by someone else. I'm so happy to have her back!!!!!!!! She's really clingy now ... Read more
The stress is eating me alive...
Seriously, I'm not sure how much longer I can take it.
My family went on vacation for two weeks, and we got home last Tuesday. My brother-in-law was house sitting for us, which involved making sure our dog and cat were fed. That's it. You'd... Read more
I reached my goal! Well....kind of...
So today I stepped on the scale, and it read 174! That's a whole pound less than my goal of 175...and although it was great to see that number, I expect it to be a temporary loss. Why? Because I have the stomach flu, and I haven't been able to k... Read more
I'm such a chicken...
Well, my Avia cross-trainers have served me well as I started the C25K program, but I really need some actual running shoes.
I went to a local store this past weekend. There's no place around that actually fits you for running shoes, so I d... Read more
Back on track!
I posted about my plateau last week...and now it's broken! I was out of town for most of last week, and couldn't weigh every day like I usually do. I weighed in Friday morning, and I was down another 2 pounds, under 180! Only 4 more pounds to my... Read more

It's plateau time!
I started the Couch to 5k running program about 3 weeks ago, and I've been plateaued ever since - I go between 181 and 183 every day, it seems. None of my measurements are getting smaller either.
I'm doing great on the C25k program, and I l... Read more
