Still in Cali
Sunday, November 09, 2008      7 comments

Hi Everyone! WOW, the blog page looks different. So much has changed in the short time I've been away. I am still in California -- just hopped on my friend's computer for a little while. I am actually extending my stay here for another week. M... Read more

Ok, so... the scale has been moving between 115-ish and 116-ish for a couple of weeks now. It's been saying 115 consistently in the mornings, so today I decided to stop torturing myself and update my tracker. It's been a long journey, but I wo... Read more
Jennifer Hudson

It just makes me sick to my stomach to think about what happened to Jennifer Hudson's family and that little boy. I hope she finds peace through this horrible tragedy.... Read more
Burned out and discouraged
Wednesday, October 22, 2008      7 comments

No matter what or how much I do, it doesn't seem to be enough. I'm feeling a bit burned out. Don't know what else to say.... Read more
Emotional eating
Tuesday, October 14, 2008      8 comments

Lately, I've been snacking on sweets at night. Not because I'm hungry (though my brain tries to convince me that I am) but because chocolate chip oatmeal cookies and ice cream just make me feel better. The scale has been kind so far. Thank goodn... Read more
The Baltimore Marathon
Saturday, October 11, 2008      4 comments

I know what you might be thinking upon seeing the blog title. NO, I did not run the Baltimore Marathon. But as DH and I walked to and from the gym for our morning workout, we saw many of the runners pass through our area. It was fun to cheer th... Read more
Even at the gym?!?!
Friday, October 03, 2008      7 comments

I was at the gym yesterday morning and noticed they were setting up for a large staff meeting. They had the basketball court filled with tables and chairs. When I looked in (the basketball court's mesh-like "walls" are transparent) some of the ... Read more
Tightening the purse strings
Saturday, September 27, 2008      11 comments

It's 1 am and I can't sleep. Too much on my mind. First off, for anyone reading this... just a warning that this blog will have nothing whatsoever to do with weight loss or food. Except for maybe emotional eating. Today, I found out that so... Read more
That last stubborn pound
Wednesday, September 24, 2008      8 comments

One pound. No big deal, right? When we gain a pound we think "It's okay. It's JUST a pound. A one-pound gain is not noticeable anyway." When we lose a pound, we think "So what?? It's ONLY one pound." Well, I'm going to have to disagree wit... Read more
Skinny Bitch
Friday, September 19, 2008      16 comments

I recently finished reading "Skinny Bitch" and I was not impressed at all. The book does bring up some good points about nutrition but nothing that I didn't already know. I'm no prude, but this book was unnecessarily vulgar. But I guess that... Read more
What's the deal?
Friday, September 12, 2008      10 comments

I know this blog might hurt some people's feelings (and that is not my intent) but I can't take it anymore. It's at the point where I'm offended. What is the deal with all the religion on this site? This morning, there was a new post in one... Read more
The Aurelia FitFlop
Wednesday, September 10, 2008      11 comments

OK, there's been a lot of talk about FitFlops today - first in the Daily Spark and also on my What Not to Wear Fans team. For those who don't know what they are, FitFlops are these, well, flip-flops that claim to give you a bit of a leg wor... Read more
In danger of re-toxifying myself
Wednesday, September 03, 2008      7 comments

I have eaten so much crap lately that I am in serious danger of going backwards. And that is one place I DO NOT want to go. A lot of it is emotional eating. I have been very emotional this week for some reason. And sometimes I just let mys... Read more
Note to self: NO TACO BELL on road trips! Ever!
Tuesday, September 02, 2008      7 comments

DH and I were on the road yesterday for our 9+ hour drive home from SC and got hungry. The usual fast food dominates our nation's highways. We unfortunately decided on Taco Bell for dinner. Blech, yuck, blech, YUCK!! I felt sick to my tummy for ... Read more
New mini goals for me
Thursday, August 28, 2008      6 comments

I've set a few new goals for myself, just to keep things interesting. I don't want to get into a rut with my workouts. I also want the scale to move 2 more pounds, but I am not going to obsess over it. I've been doing pretty well with food this ... Read more
