Saturday, February 12, 2011      3 comments

It's our annual chili cookoff at work today, in honor of the Superbowl this weekend (at least I think it's this weekend, I'm sports illiterate). 20 different chilis, 10 different cornbreads. The competition is intense. At stake is a $40 Bed, ... Read more

was a non-event. Since Monday the weather forecasts have been predicting from 12-20 inches of snow Tuesday night where I live in SE Michigan. Which really shouldn't be that unexpected here but apparently many MI residents have the memories... Read more
Standard sizes
Tuesday, February 01, 2011      7 comments

I wish that clothing sizes were regulated, or at the very least there was a single standard everyone used. I got rid of my size 16s and dug out all my 14s to hang in my closet. So I go to get dressed for work in the morning, pull out my nicest... Read more

I have 5 cats. I did not start out to be the crazy cat lady, it just sort of happened gradually without my noticing, kind of like my extra weight. But I take care of them so I don't qualify yet for an episode of Animal Hoarders, or whatever th... Read more

Per the scale this morning I am now down by 15 pounds! WooHoo! And officially in the 180s. 5 pounds left to go down a BMI level to merely "overweight". Next week I take measurements & I've been sleeping pretty good. I feel like a Sparkl... Read more
The Scale Gremlins
Tuesday, January 25, 2011      3 comments

My scale has them. And they are playing with me. For the last week my scale has not budged an ounce...or even a fraction of an ounce. The same number every single day. And I've been good, eating right and exercising. Intellectualy I kno... Read more

Today is my "day off". I have no exercise scheduled, I'm going to be looser with what I choose to eat (but still stay within my plan!). We're having Tur-duc-hen with homemade jambalaya for dinner just because (it's expensive so is genera... Read more

Dinner tonight! This is fast becoming my childrens' winter comfort food. They are after me to make it weekly. So I entered the recipe here & the damage isn't nearly as bad as I thought. I might even eat one! http://recipes.sparkpeople.c... Read more
Week 3 recap / ramble
Saturday, January 22, 2011      3 comments

Yesterday was the end of Week 3 for me. I've lost 14 lbs. so far which is amazing. My BMI is hovering just on the edge of "obese", ready to go to merely overweight in 1 more pound. Which stubbornly refuses to go away this week. But at least ... Read more

We all know drinking enough water is important. Being very goal oriented & somewhat competitive I just can't break my streak. But time conspired against me yesterday and I was faced with being 2 glasses short at bedtime. Not thinking it throu... Read more
