Note to self...
Sunday, December 29, 2013      9 comments

... shut up and wear the damn hat. That's actually the title of this blog, but I thought "note to self" would be more politically correct. So I have a series of blogs in my head that may or may not end up on screen, this is the first. It'... Read more
End of the fall 5% challenge
Saturday, December 07, 2013      5 comments

The end of the fall 5% challenge took me by surprise this morning, I thought we had one more week and when I went to post my weight I realized we don't. I didn't lose anything like the 5% I had hoped for, but I did end the challenge a couple po... Read more
3 good days - but hard day at work
Thursday, December 05, 2013      5 comments

Yesterday was a bad day at work. We had our regular monthly before school staff meeting just to cover some basic housekeeping "stuff". Among the things we talked about was the change in procedure that I talked about in my last blog. I tried s... Read more
Cha cha cha changes
Sunday, December 01, 2013      6 comments

Let me just start out by mentioning how much I do not like change. Any change. Even tiny little nothing changes have the potential to put me in a funk and ruin my day. Unexpected changes are the worst, but even ones I have time to plan for ar... Read more
weekly blog - can't think of a title
Saturday, November 02, 2013      9 comments

Since Halloween is over, I decided to put up a picture of Madagascar's Baobab Avenue because this week's virtual destination is Madagascar. This is one island I would love to visit in real life. I watched a documentary a while back and was jus... Read more
another week gone - how did that happen?
Saturday, October 26, 2013      9 comments

Last Saturday I had a mini-meltdown and threw a pity party for myself. I'm over it, thank goodness. By afternoon I had a full on plan for the week. Then I blinked at it's already Saturday again. I don't know how that happened, but it feels ... Read more
Saturday rant
Saturday, October 19, 2013      8 comments

Fair warning - this is a whiny, self-pitying, venting blog. If you don't want to read it , don't. So today's weigh-in was bad - up 2 lbs. I'm not surprised though, and honestly it wasn't as bad as I was expecting. I was mentally prepar... Read more
words of support
Sunday, October 13, 2013      11 comments

My friend Bigpawsup has this on her page, and asked for her friends to copy and paste. We can all use support sometimes, and it can be the hardest thing in the world to ask for help for ourselves. I you need an ear, a little support, a virtual... Read more
Fall 5% challenge - day one
Saturday, October 12, 2013      6 comments

In the summer challenge I changed my page background each week to the location we were virtually traveling to in the 5% challenge. After Halloween I may do that again, but I like Halloween and I want Halloween pictures in my background for now.... Read more
pre-challenge #7 - triggers
Tuesday, October 08, 2013      5 comments

This blog entry is supposed to list all of my trigger foods and trigger situations. If I were to actually list ALL of them we'd be here all night. In the interest of time I will just hit the high points. Chocolate continues to be a huge t... Read more
Assignment 6 - why I want to lose weight
Saturday, October 05, 2013      6 comments

It seems like lately I've lost sight of what's important to me and why it's important. I've been over-indulging in junky stuff and under-indulging in exercise. I could go on and on as to why, but that's not the point of this blog today. P... Read more
Lots of nothing
Saturday, September 21, 2013      8 comments

I've been trying to blog Saturdays, so I'm here but I don't really have a lot to say. I'm guessing that it'll end up being lots of nothing though because that's how it always works for me. Today is the official end of the 5% summer challen... Read more
week's recap
Wednesday, September 18, 2013      9 comments

This week's destination and background picture is lovely Bermuda. I wanted a picture of the Bermuda Triangle, but it wouldn't load. Lovely beach picture instead. Last blog I was flying high, and then my plane crashed. I will be lucky to ... Read more
5% goal met and no junk food
Saturday, September 07, 2013      10 comments

This week's destination for the 5% challenge is Athens, Greece. There were so many great pictures, but this is the one that called out to me to be my page background for the week. As of this morning I've lost 12 pounds since the beginning ... Read more
100 calories
Sunday, September 01, 2013      9 comments

This week's destination for the 5% challenge is Bali. The picture I chose for this week's background is just beautiful and peaceful. It makes me calm just to look at. Of course it's much nicer without my page and the ad in the middle of it. ... Read more
