Finally! After being stuck on 145.3 all week the weight shifted in the right direction. 144.5 this morning :) So I'm back to where I was before our West Coast trip - it's taken 2 weeks, that's the longest ever to bounce back from a trip and cons... Read more

Yesterday I went to Pagosa with DD. We had a blast - we sorted through our closets and apart from ditching quite a few things, we managed to find something in each other's closet as well. She also shopped in my pantry and she's taking the res... Read more
Stuck - no progress

Since Sunday I've lost a whopping 0.2!! I'm doing yoga, walk regularly to work and the post office and eat sensibly... but the weight isn't really shifting. I know patience is a virtue but this is getting silly!... Read more

Ok, forget sauntering along.... I have a hard time with it. Before I knew it I was was back in my stride. The apples didn't look quite ready yet, so maybe next week I'll have a go at picking up a bag full and maybe use them in a salad or make... Read more
Walking slower
Tuesday, September 01, 2009      1 comments

Yesterday I read on one of the boards I frequent that walking slowly (2 mph) burns more tummy fat than walking at what is my regular pace - 3-4 mph... I know Michael Thurmond of the Six week body makeover says the same. (I had great success with... Read more

I love my yoga first thing in the morning. It un-creaks all my joints and I feel awake, relaxed and alive at the end of it. It improves my mood, puts a smile on my face - I can't think of a better way to start the morning. Best of all I can do i... Read more

We've been back for over a week now and I'm down 1.7 to 145.5 this morning. Prove that fudging the system doesn't work.. normally vacation pounds drop a bit faster than that. Maybe because I didn't put on that much this time? So today is time ... Read more
Trip to Durango

This morning we went over to Durango, stopped at Home Depot and couldn't find what we were looking for, on to the the auto store to get new sun shields for the car and truck, the Apple store to get a new firewire and we visited with DD. We wa... Read more

The other day I felt a nip in the air and I brought my trusty crockpot over from the other house. I need to re-organize my cabinets to make some space but they needed some attention anyway. Yesterday I made a batch of Mexican chicken and it tu... Read more

I started the day with yoga, it's so nice to get un-creaked first thing :) After doing a few bits in the house I walked to the post office, collected the mail and the paper and walked to the office. I really enjoy my walks - especially the mor... Read more
Chore day

I started the day with yoga and then I went over to Pagosa early this morning. Had the permanent crown put on at the dentist, dropped off DD's Driver's Ed at the insurance company (they lost it from 6 years ago!), picked up some stuff at the hou... Read more

Yesterday was a chilly rainy day but today the sun is out and it makes the lake sparkle. It's so pretty. Last night we had a full rainbow with an echo - I took some pictures but of course these things never look as good as in real life. ... Read more
Getting on top of the laundry
Monday, August 24, 2009      1 comments

Since April I've been hauling my laundry to the house in Pagosa, thinking we may have a leak in the system here. Finally DH managed to get under the house, checked the pipes and also all the hoses inside. Everything seemed to work fine until the... Read more

Despite the glass of wine I was down a pound his morning - getting back on track. Today I'll tackle the pile of laundry and battle the spiders who have been having a ball whilst we were away.... Read more
Back to basics

The dreaded weigh in turned out ok :) 147.2 after 2 weeks of eating what I wanted but hardly any junk and lots of walking is pretty good. That makes for less than 3 pounds - I was up before we left :( Today I started with a yoga session, time... Read more
