A Week Late ...
Friday, March 27, 2009      2 comments

Every other Friday is bagel & donut day in the office. Last Friday, I had a super healthy breakfast from home and had absolutely no desire for a bagel OR a donut. It was a bloody miracle. A chorus of angels started singing, people bowed do... Read more
Overweight ... AND DAMN HAPPY ABOUT IT
Thursday, March 26, 2009      9 comments

Caught up in other melodramas and life events, I completely neglected to notice a major milestone. I am not obese. HA! At 167, I went from "obese" to "overweight" on the BMI scale. HEEELLLLLLLLL YEAH. Now, granted, I'm this... Read more

This morning was rough. ROUGH. I seriously contemplated sleeping another hour instead of going to the gym, but then a little voice in my head started chiming in, letting me know it's a slippery slope for me. First it's, 'well it's just one day. ... Read more
Rules: Made To Be Broken
Tuesday, March 24, 2009      2 comments

Rule #1: Do not buy clothing online. (Explanation: If I take 20 things into a fitting room, I consider myself lucky if *one* of those items fits well and looks good. Buying things online and then having to return things via mail and blah bl... Read more
Warning: Bitchfest / Pity Party!
Monday, March 23, 2009      1 comments

I've been feeling pretty good lately. The weight is slowly starting to trickle off, and it's been reasonably consistent which is rare to say the least. This is my lowest weight in over a year and a half. I've fit into pants I haven't been able t... Read more
Strange, but true ...
Sunday, March 22, 2009      1 comments

I've reached an odd conclusion ... I lose more weight (reality: I lose weight, period) when I eat more and exercise less. WHAT?!! I really can't explain this, but it's true. When I'm eating 1200 calories/day and jogging 4-5 days... Read more
Damn You, Cookies!

I found a farmers' market pretty close to home, so I was all excited to go get some yummy goodness, make a great lunch and/or dinner, and have a super healthy fresh-filled day. Instead I realized there was one stand that had only lettuce an... Read more
Escaping the Freezer
Friday, March 20, 2009      1 comments

There's been a frozen meal in the freezer at work for three days now. And I still haven't eaten it. I was going to yesterday, but then I realized it was a full staff meeting and lunch thereafter so I ignored it again. It was Mexican food th... Read more
Well That Was Weird
Thursday, March 19, 2009      2 comments

Yesterday was a weird food day. I used to have this problem a lot -- I call it food apathy -- but over the past few years I've gotten better. Until yesterday. For some crazy reason, I was wide awake from 1:45AM until probably about 5A... Read more
Closet Shopping!
Wednesday, March 18, 2009      2 comments

I'm on a first-name basis with the guys at the Goodwill drop-off lane. I've donated A LOT of clothing over the years, from 22s down to 14s, and a crapload of tops and household stuff to boot. I've even given up some tops that were too small or I... Read more
Gym Etiquette
Tuesday, March 17, 2009      2 comments

I go to a *very* small gym in my office complex on weekday mornings. It has plenty of equipment, but the locker rooms are tiny. But because it's just for my office complex, it's not very crowded, especially at 6:30AM. There are two o... Read more
Putting It In Perspective
Monday, March 16, 2009      1 comments

Sometimes I get frustrated when I think about how unbelievably friggin slowly the scale moves. Especially since I "started over" here on Spark in December, my little ticker shows something like 3 pounds. In three months! But (almost) every... Read more
A New Low .... YIPPEEE!
Sunday, March 15, 2009      0 comments

167.8 this morning. I'm not sure how the hell that happened, but I'll take it!! This is two weeks in a row in the 60s. In the past, it has gone back up within three so I'm going to really work hard this week to keep that evil little bastar... Read more
Guilty Pleasure
Friday, March 13, 2009      1 comments

On the whole, I've gone all hippy trippy with my basic goal being to eat whole foods. Foods found in nature. Foods with ingredients I can pronounce that don't involve insane chemistry experiments. Except. Damn I love Cool Whip Free. I... Read more
Tidbits

I'm a bit random today, so try to stick with me here ... - I've developed a lovely case of laryngitis. I had a cold, but it was all in my head. Somewhere between 4PM and, oh, 8ish tonight, it all invaded my throat and now I can't speak. On... Read more
