Yeah, let's just say that today was not a sterling day for me in terms of will power, good choices, and staying within my calorie count. My sticky fingers are making a mess of the keyboard as I type. Jelly and custard-filled pastries... Read more
Lunch-- it's not for sissies
Thursday, January 24, 2013      1 comments

Ok, for those of you with a weak, or easily-offended, constitution, look away. Yesterday was a doozy for me. I was eating healthfully, making good choices (or so I thought), and had a big ol' bowl of an aseptic-packaged soup I got at... Read more
DH's Master Plan
Tuesday, January 15, 2013      2 comments

I did NOT want to work out tonight, but DH texted me he was on the way to the gym. I cannot let him regret getting that gym membership by my bailing on him, so I went. His plan to get me back into the gym consistently is working, and I think h... Read more
PF and DH
Saturday, January 12, 2013      0 comments

DH has accompanied me to PF 3 times this week. He has been especially motivating and supportive. Cross your fingers that this continues. If it doesn't, though, I will go on my own. I feel the need. Although my cravings for naughty stuff... Read more
Starting the new year

I made it through the holidays gaining/losing about the same amount, so there is no remorseful, New Year's damage control to be done, thank goodness. I did, however, enter into a depressed state like one I have never experienced before this pas... Read more
My glass is half full, but my plate is completely full, thank you

The universe has such balancing properties. My surgery was very successful, even to the point of not even needing any pain medication afterward. My return to ambulation was fast, and my insurance deductible was already met, so the surgery cost... Read more
Surgery, sleep, water, gratitude

The arthroscopic surgery went well, no nausea, very little pain, and I am (cautiously) walking around without aid of crutches or cane. I'm not driving yet since I drive a stick shift and need both legs to be working well, so I missed all the Bl... Read more

Not sure how it is possible to be nit-picky and OCD about the cleanliness of 98% of the house, yet let my bedroom, closet, and bathroom look like an episode of "Hoarders". I finally snapped and started purging/cleaning my bathroom today. It ha... Read more
This was *not* on my birthday list!

I found out today that my knee pain from yesterday and the day before is another torn meniscus. Now I have MMT in BOTH knees! I was scheduled for surgery for the left one for the 20th. Now I don't know what the plan is, because I have to have... Read more

I am just going to complain for one paragraph. Then I will have it out, purged, and let the Universe deal with it. Tuesday, on the way to vote, a deer rammed into the side of my car scaring the the bejesus out of me and almost caused me to... Read more
Venison is not on the menu
Wednesday, November 07, 2012      3 comments

For the 2nd time this year, my car and I have had a run-in with a deer. I have been lucky that I have come through unharmed both times and have been spared the agony of actually finding the injured deer in pain or dead on the road. Both times,... Read more

Just tracked my calories for today. O. M. G. You know when you come home, and your dog is sitting in the middle of the garbage-strewn kitchen with his head hanging, and his apologetic puppy eyes fixed on you, waiting for the inevit... Read more

So... if you stay within your calorie budget for the day, but all the calories were high-fat, high-sugar *CRAP* calories, does that count as a "good" day or a "bad" day? Hmmmmmm... Read more

Gonna end the 4-day, no-workout "streak" tonight. I have a personal training session lined up, and I am committed to doing an additional hour of cardio throughout the day. Stayed late at work yesterday, came in early today, have worked over th... Read more
Conflicting internal messages
Wednesday, October 17, 2012      2 comments

It has been 3 days since I worked out. A streak I am not pleased with. I post my status as being headed to the gym, and then something distracts me or tempts me away from what I know will make me feel good after feeling temporarily uncomfortab... Read more
