Starting Over Again
Sunday, October 02, 2016      2 comments

Here I am again, with bad habits and pants that don't fit. This time around, I'm starting out slow. I'm going to walk a few times a week, and maybe do some exercise videos. I'm going to eat more salads, but I'm going to track my food and really ... Read more
New Beginnings
Thursday, February 12, 2015      4 comments

Oh dear, those midwinter pounds are sneaking on again! I'm finding it harder to button my snow pants, which is SUCH a bummer! Could impede my getting outside and using my snowshoes with all this snow! (Worst case, I could wear my husband's.) ... Read more
Mid-Winter Blues
Wednesday, January 29, 2014      8 comments

I've been in a bit of a funk lately. Not quite as bad as I've been in other winters, but bad enough that I realized I'm definitely not feeling quite myself. January is always a little tough for me, I have a touch of SAD, plus I have to get throu... Read more
An Eye-Opener
Thursday, August 15, 2013      4 comments

Last winter I was doing and feeling great! And I patted myself on the back because usually I backslide during winter and don't exercise as much or eat as well. Then, little by little, that backslide happened. I'm not sure when or how, but sudden... Read more
New Dog! Meet Zoey :)
Tuesday, September 11, 2012      4 comments

This is our new little addition, Zoey. She's settling in pretty well, and has made herself at home in my laundry basket of clean blankets (they were already dog blankets anyway). Fiona is still unimpressed having another dog around, especially s... Read more
The Number I've Been Waiting For
Saturday, July 14, 2012      9 comments

I FINALLY saw it! On my scale, this morning, 189. A number less than 190. A number I haven't seen in more than 3 years. There's something about weighing less than 190 that makes me feel like the possibilities are endless. When I was at 214... Read more
HAPPY 2012!
Wednesday, January 04, 2012      2 comments

2012 is starting out a bit roughly for me, but I am hopeful that we have nowhere to go but up! My main goal for 2012 is to be a more grateful and positive person. It's going to be hard, as for some reason I really enjoy being pessimistic. ... Read more
A Little Perspective
Friday, June 24, 2011      0 comments

Yesterday I got to spend half an hour talking to a long lost friend. He and I went to high school together for only a year, but we've stayed in touch off and on the past 10 years. I actually hadn't spoken to him in about 4 years. He seemed... Read more
A Little Progress
Tuesday, May 17, 2011      4 comments

I'm glad I joined the gym. I still have days where I think I shouldn't pay money to go there and I should just work out at home, but the thing is that I don't work out at home. And it's been super rainy lately and if I wasn't meeting my mom and ... Read more
GYM!
Tuesday, May 10, 2011      3 comments

After years of avoiding it, I finally broke down and joined a gym. I know that I have all the tools to work out at home, especially with summer coming, but I just don't have the drive and motivation. But if I get up and go to the gym every day, ... Read more

Sleep, Yoga, Soreness and a Little Whine
Wednesday, April 13, 2011      3 comments

*Warning* This post is probably going to come off as really whiny, because I am. I'll try to keep it positive. Yesterday's yoga class was REALLY hard! We did a lot of ab work, and after the ab work from the day before, plus cramps from my ... Read more
I give up. I quit.
Tuesday, April 12, 2011      8 comments

Apparently I will never sleep again. At least, not without some sort of chemical help. I've been having issues falling asleep, and then staying asleep. I wake up at least 4 times a night. At first, it was from being sick, so I was taking n... Read more
Magic Number!!!
Saturday, April 02, 2011      7 comments

I was about to write out my April goals, when I realized I already met one of them!! I weighed myself after yoga class when I got home today, and I'd had a couple of snacks so I didn't expect much. But there is was. 199.0!!!!!!!!!!! I'M BELOW 2... Read more
Back to Yoga Challenge
Friday, April 01, 2011      2 comments

I started back on my yoga challenge yesterday! I was a little worried about going, but once class got started I felt really good! There were a couple of postures I had to sit out to catch my breath, but overall class went well. I'm definitely no... Read more
