How my holidays went (better late than never)
Thursday, January 12, 2012      3 comments

I promised myself I would actually take the time to write down how this past holiday season went, as far as weight loss goes. Here's my promise. :-D I had full intentions of Walking with Ms. Leslie (Walk Away the Pounds) every other d... Read more
The Other Day One
Tuesday, January 10, 2012      5 comments

So I'm trying this again, now that the holidays are over and My Guy is more determined than ever to quit smoking. This morning is Day One for him.... and I'm sitting here at work, debating whether today will be my Day One too. I'm croaking... Read more
I'll have to patch it

Over the weekend, I decided to work on the quit smoking plan once again. My Guy & I have stopped smoking in the house, and going to the garage for a puff. This would be great, if he didn't start a fire in the woodstove before I got there for m... Read more
Ever have one of those weeks?
Thursday, October 27, 2011      2 comments

Well, today is one of those days that feels like a week, and it's not even 9am. Last night, I emailed a friend who recently lost her father to liver disease, and apparently I said something very wrong. I wake up to an email reply that basi... Read more

I think she moved out
Saturday, September 17, 2011      4 comments

Today is the day! StepDaughter and GGB have finally moved into their new home. I haven't been over yet, it's been a little (ok, a lot) chaotic, and My Guy in transit of load #2, which should be pretty much it. It's a start. It's not all ... Read more
You know you're doing something right when....

Y'know how on this journey to a healthy lifestyle that good things happen sometimes along the way? It's true. On the weekend, I happened to saunter out of the bedroom with my birthday suit and a pair of panties, when My Guy walked by. "Yo... Read more
Camping Trips, Vacations, and What I Still Need to Learn
Monday, August 15, 2011      1 comments

Now that I'm back from vacation, Diet Burnout Recovery has finished. Just before I left, I was so sick & tired of everything, including Spark, that everything I did felt like a chore. So this year, when I took vacation time, I decided to step ... Read more
Ever wonder if there are real berries in that cereal?
Thursday, August 04, 2011      1 comments

I got this link from a friend. After watching the video, it only reinforces the idea to READ THE LABELS! Personally, I don't like buying cereals or yogurts or other products with fruit added in them, because I don't like them like that. ... Read more
Always be vigilant, because it never goes away
Monday, July 18, 2011      5 comments

Every now and again, I start to believe that I can beat this thing with food addiction. I go long long periods of time where I do great. I don't mean just stay within calorie range, work out until my innards hurt, but be in the right frame of ... Read more

So, I have 175lbs in my sights. Really, I do! I'm so excited!! I haven't seen these numbers since my teens, and that's been at least 25 years! I finally decided to treat myself when I get to 175, and that treat would be a pedicure. I'm ... Read more
It's not getting any easier, in case you're wondering
Sunday, July 10, 2011      1 comments

So next weekend is when StepDaughter is due to move out, again. This is getting hard on the head, because I'm not convinced they'll be able to make a decent go of it, especially where she isn't/doesn't work. The anxiety level is palpable. ... Read more
Yes, I'm the Mean StepMother
Tuesday, June 21, 2011      7 comments

Last night was the last straw. StepDaughter has become less and less respectful of our house and habitants in the last 2 weeks, and last night she kept me awake for nearly 2 hours in the middle of the night. She was getting ready to have GGB p... Read more
Name change
Wednesday, June 01, 2011      3 comments

As I gripe and whine about GothDaughter's trials and tribulations while she lives with us, I've come to realize that she's not Goth at all. If anything, she's a vampire, with the hours she keeps, not the lifestyle. So, from this point onwa... Read more
What bums me out
Wednesday, May 25, 2011      9 comments

What bums me out is when I finally get back on track after having a "big chest cold" for 2 weeks, it takes nearly a month to get muscles up to speed again, and actually see weight loss. What bums me out is when I try a different workout DVD... Read more
