Saw the doctor yesterday.
I have high cholesterol. High BAD cholesterol. I am supposed to cut back on fats and add flax seed to my diet and exercise more and get another blood test done in three months. It's only JUST over where it should be, so it's been caught nice and... Read more
We ran out of water last week, on Tuesday. On Thursday, we got the cistern re-filled and found that the pump was broken because I didn't turn it off on Tuesday (because I didn't know it had to be turned off). On Saturday, we got a new pump. Yest... Read more
Moving is nuts.
We have been moving. We are sort of still moving - since we're unpacking.
Our new house is nice and big, but we have too much stuff - it seems like it is full of boxes! I'm sure we'll get things organized and put away eventually, but until ... Read more
Getting things done!
Well, last week was great. It was so nice to have some time with my brother. We haven't always gotten along very well, so it's always good to connect positively. I didn't track my food last week, though, and I didn't really exercise, either. I h... Read more
What a week!
I returned home on Thursday to a house that was three times worse than it was when I left. ACK!
J and I went out to the new place on Friday night to look around and check it out. It was pretty good, just a few things to worry about.

Happy New Year!
I have been having a lovely Christmas. I have been at my parents' since December 15, and I return home on Thursday (January 6). I find that I eat really strangely when I'm at my parents', and it's not really because they eat strangely. I guess i... Read more
Yesterday was Thanksgiving here in Canada, and J and I celebrated with my brother and his family. We drove down on Sunday afternoon and we had dinner together - turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes (PURPLE potatoes!), green beans, corn, and dinner ... Read more
Week Ten: Back on the horse?
I took a couple of weeks off from SparkPeople. Well, I mean, I read posts in my teams and tracked my food and exercise for the most part, but that's about it.
I've been eating mostly okay, but I haven't been exercising as much as I was. So ... Read more
Week Eight: Making up for not reporting in last week.
I'm sorry I wasn't around last week. Well, I was around, I just didn't post. Mostly that was because I was having a bad weekend/week, and I had to lessen my expectations of myself so that I could get through the day.
I'm doing much better n... Read more
Week Six: Has it really been that long?!?
I LOST ANOTHER TWO POUNDS THIS WEEK!!!!
Can you tell I'm excited about that?
I had a difficult... Read more
Week Five: Sticking with it.
Alas, only half a pound gone this week. I'm not worrying just yet; we'll see what next week's weigh-in says first. I might have hit a plateau, or my body might have decided to rebel at the lack of candy and chocolate and pop, or the coffees I dr... Read more
Week Four: Am I on a roll?
I lost another two pounds, everyone! Another four pounds - two weeks, if I continue like this - and I can go to Old Navy and get myself another long skirt for every day wear! I'm definitely looking forward to that!
Here are my grades from J... Read more

Week Two: In which consistency flies out the window.
Don't worry, I am far from discouraged!
Consistency is one of those things I have a lot of trouble with, probably because of my ADHD. So it's something I am continually working on in all areas of my life. This last week was a setback, but i... Read more

Week One: Attempting to maintain consistency.
So last week was my Week One, and this is my summary post. I'm having these weeks start on Monday, and I'll be posting on Mondays to talk about the previous week's progress.
First of all, I went from 252lbs to 249lbs, so focusing on eating ... Read more
