Last week's challenge (I'm a little late) was to do a gloaty pants report. So here's my report for May. Lost 2 inches from my waist and belly. Finished Couch to 5K. Decluttered back entrance, front entrance and dresser. Started p... Read more

Cleaned up another small area of the house recently -- my dresser. The before picture doesn't tell the whole story -- it actually got worse than this before it got better. ... Read more

Wish in one hand

This morning I was looking at an email I got from Reitman's (a women's clothing store in Canada), advertising their latest sale. The email included images of thin women wearing different outfits. I caught myself saying (mentally) "I wish I cou... Read more
Vision
Tuesday, May 29, 2012      2 comments

The month of May has been a struggle. I haven't been keeping up as well with many of the good habits I developed in April. I believe I will fall short on most of my May goals. I have been doing some soul searching to try to understand why... Read more
The Reset Button & Fundraising
Saturday, May 26, 2012      2 comments

I'm pushing the reset button again. This week wasn't the greatest for exercise -- I didn't make it out to gym and I didn't run at all. But next week is a new week, and I will get back into the habit of running again and working out with my... Read more
Week (or 2) in Review
Friday, May 25, 2012      4 comments

It's been a weird couple of weeks. I'm not too jazzed about my progress against my goals lately. I'm still suffering from a significant lack of motivation, and nothing I do seems to make much of a difference. I know for sure my motivation... Read more
This Week's Chore
Wednesday, May 16, 2012      4 comments

So I watched BOGUSANNNIE's vlog describing our "chore" for the week, which was to do some decluttering. My first thought was "I'm not going to do this one -- my house is in pretty good shape". That's true actually. For the most part, the main... Read more
Week in Review
Monday, May 14, 2012      4 comments

It was a bit of a strange week. Lots of ups and downs. Had some kind of very annoying stomach bug on Friday, but luckily it didn't last beyond a day. Saturday was an almost perfect day -- went to watch my kids get their green belts in kar... Read more
Rewards and mid-week update
Thursday, May 10, 2012      4 comments

I know that it's important to reward yourself when you reach certain goals. I've been thinking about what sorts of rewards I'd like to promise myself, and for what goals. I'm hesitant to reward myself for weight loss, because to some exten... Read more

A couple of years ago, when I was approaching my 40th birthday, I decided that I wanted to lose 40 pounds by my 40th birthday. I thought this idea up in plenty of time for it to be an achievable goal -- my birthday is Oct 31, and I'm pretty sur... Read more

The Scale
Monday, April 23, 2012      6 comments

I've gotten into the habit of stepping on the scale every day. I've heard mixed reviews about whether this is a good thing or not. Some studies I've read said that people who are most successful at losing weight and keeping it off weigh themse... Read more
