Getting back on track... really
Saturday, October 02, 2010      1 comments

I've had a quiet month. Quiet, in that I really was laid back when it came to my weight loss efforts. I guess the good news was that I didn't gain. This past week was a combo of fatigue from a brief 3.5 day trip out West and some sinus/runn... Read more
A Long Silence
Monday, September 20, 2010      0 comments

It's been a while since I last wrote in the blog. I've been going through one of the rough spots of the program - maintaining my practices to reach my goals. The excuses have returned. The procrastination has returned. I look at my exercise plan... Read more
Post Labor Day Blast
Tuesday, September 07, 2010      0 comments

We used to have a family barbecue on the Sunday before Labor Day. (Labor Day is when our town does fireworks and has a festival day.) I live on the lake, in direct view of the fireworks. A few years ago, we started inviting some people to view t... Read more
I did it.

I woke up this morning with every intention of working out immediately. Then I picked up my book and a half hour was gone. Then I figured I should eat something so I wouldn't be taking meds on an empty stomach... and got involved in a computer g... Read more
Personal Diet Challenge
Saturday, August 28, 2010      1 comments

(I try to be careful using the term "diet" - it always brings forth an image of a temporary restrictive state that solves nothing.) So where was I? Ah, yes... the challenge. I've found I'm having a challenge finding "satisfaction" in what I... Read more
Yesterday vs today
Wednesday, August 18, 2010      1 comments

Had a pretty good day yesterday. I felt energetic, got some stuff done.. and at weigh-in I was down 2.4 pounds. It was also the meeting of one of my goals: I've lost 10% of my body weight. Next goal: One-derland. Today is the pits. I'm slee... Read more
Falling Short
Saturday, August 14, 2010      1 comments

I'm falling short of my goals. I don't think they are out of line. I'm just having an attitude problem. "I DON'T WANT TO!" keeps screaming in my head. I want to eat "regular" food. I want to skip a day or two of working out without feeling like ... Read more
Back from Vacation
Sunday, August 01, 2010      2 comments

Well, I'm back. It, of course, was a whirlwind trip through New England. We had perfect weather throughout the entire trip. What we didn't have in many places was internet and cell signals. I wrote down everything I ate and all that we did, but ... Read more
Well, it's official. I am the mom of adult children.
Friday, July 23, 2010      2 comments

My baby turned 21 today. It's a strange feeling. I have 2 boys. One is a daddy himself (but you know that story if you've seen my page), and now my youngest is officially an adult. It's probably related, but I'm not exactly sure in w... Read more
Prepping for the trip...and stamping my cards!
Wednesday, July 21, 2010      1 comments

I've got a card swap for the Stamp To Lose team to get out. I'll get those finished up this afternoon. Swaps are fun, and you get to see how others use materials. At the same time (kinda) I'm finalizing plans for our trip next week. Looking... Read more

A Visit to NYC
Saturday, July 17, 2010      0 comments

I have my niece and her 3 children visiting for a few days so, of course, we took them to NYC. Rockefeller Center, FAO Schwartz (naturally!), Mary Poppins, the Empire State Building... a lot of walking. Not fast walking, but enough to count. :) ... Read more

My niece and her 3 kid-ums are visiting on their way from Arizona to Germany. (Her DH is stationed there for a couple of years.) This morning I took them to the stable where they got horsie rides, then they went tubing on the lake. This afternoo... Read more
Message boards, diets, and reflection
Thursday, July 15, 2010      0 comments

I was reading some of the message boards this morning, and there are a couple that ask questions like how to handle vacations, holidays, and junk food at work. Half of the responses were good suggestions on activity, planning, and mindset. The o... Read more
Spoiled a streak :(
Monday, July 12, 2010      1 comments

On the road over the weekend, and had limited use of a computer. I had my phone, but entering data on the web from a cell phone is I missed spinning the wheel yesterday. :( Blew my streak. I was able to easily track my food and... Read more
