It been about a week since I put my scale away. I think I'm pretty much over the automatic "get on the scale" response every morning. It's pretty weird though, not weighing myself. For a long time now, I've defined success by whether or not t... Read more

My son, my baby, turns 10 today. He's with his dad this weekend, so I haven't seen him yet. When I called to wish him happy birthday he was out at a friend's, which is how it should be. I'll see him later tonight when we go out for his birthd... Read more

I can't believe that August has gone already. I love the summer. I love the heat (especially since I have an air conditioned house), volleyball on the beach, the long days, sitting on my deck, bbqing, camping, all of that. And this has been a... Read more

Camping this weekend was wonderful. Perfect weather, great to see all my friends again. The kids were great, songs around the campfire, the whole bit. On Saturday (and Sunday) we spent the day at the beach. My friend and I saw a bunch of... Read more
BodyByVi - Week 6 Update
Friday, August 24, 2012      4 comments

This isn't really a BodyByVi update. I've decided to take a short break from the scale and measuring myself. I had been noticing weight creeping back on over the last week or so, and to be honest, I'm not really sure why. I've been tracking e... Read more

Not a great deal of progress this week -- scale up 2 pounds for some reason -- not sure why as I've been sticking with the program and working out regularly. Inches are still going down a little, so I'm grateful for that. ... Read more

I'm struggling today. I went to bed very late and am extremely tired. My system is all out of whack. There are layoffs happening at work today and a good friend and former employee of mine was let go. I am sad to see him go. I'm told our de... Read more

62 days remaining in my 90 Day BodyByVi Challenge. Good progress this week I think. Lost 2 pounds, and a little more in inches. Lost inches in different places this time -- neck, arm, calf and a little on the belly. I'll take it. ... Read more

I just realized I haven't written anything here in almost a week. Tomorrow will be my regular BodyByVi status update of course. It's been a strange week in some ways. I have been extremely tired in the morning. It's all I can do to drag ... Read more

So today is day 21 of my 90 day BodyByVi challenge. Felt good about how things went this week. A couple more inches down, 3 pounds down from last week. That puts me at a total of 15 pounds since I re-started on Sparkpeople at the end of March... Read more
A bunch of random stuff

A nice thing happened today -- a colleague of mine commented that I looked fantastic. I'm a person who has a very difficult time with compliments, so it was nice to hear, but weirdly awkward at the same time. I know her pretty well so that mad... Read more

Cyclists -- the sidewalk is not for you
Tuesday, July 31, 2012      3 comments

Today, as I was driving to the gym, I approached a red light at an intersection and stopped appropriately, at the stop line, well outside of the pedestrian crosswalk. As I was coming to a stop, a who woman was riding her bike on the sidewalk, t... Read more
Camping + This Week's Plan
Monday, July 30, 2012      6 comments

So, a camping report. My boyfriend was asleep when I got home, having already loaded the car. That gave me enough time to pack my clothes and the coolers, and gave him enough time to get some rest and get over his bad mood. I decided ... Read more

Day 14 of the BodyByVI challenge, which means weigh and measure time. Weight -- up 2 pounds. This isn't a surprise to me really, since when I was on vacation I didn't pay too much attention to what I was eating, and I didn't really exercis... Read more
