I nearly found moving away from the monthly blog again. This is hard to face; I would rather just pretend I don't have to deal with it. My exercise in food are bumping along at my normal pace. That is working out fine. The girls are also... Read more
Another month gone

Wow. September is already here. August was a fast month. The girls were gone half of the month. My head and I have been at war. Migraines and pressure, and vision in my right eye is just going. The only good thing I can say about it is tha... Read more
Unusual weekend

My girls are visiting my parents at the same time this year, which leaves me alone. I'm not used to having time to myself, to do what I want. I went to a fundraiser for the adult literacy council, helped unload a couple of U-Haul trucks, cooke... Read more

This past week I missed 2 days of workouts with migraine drain, but I also missed 2 days of eating, so it should balance itself out. I am very glad nobody can see me shuffling and gasping during Power 90 sweat, but I do keep moving from the tim... Read more
Another week already?!

This was my first week at level 3/4 with Power 90. I wanted to go back, but I didn't. By Thursday, I wanted a day off exercise, but I didn't. Thursday I ate a piece of birthday cake at a party. Then, on my way home, I stopped and got a f... Read more
Okay, now it doesn't feel so easy and effortless...

So this week I lost only a pound. I am irritated with myself right now for even complaining, because I did stick with my food plan, I did exercise 4 times, and I do feel fabulous. My skin looks amazing, and my measurements are already down fro... Read more
Still paddling downstream

Somehow, the trend continues. It seems a little unfair, after years of fighting and struggling and feeling like a failure...I'm still able to divert cravings and follow this narrow but reasonable food plan. My husband has started to snivel bec... Read more
Measured...and I'm not disappointed.

June 2nd, I wrote down that I weighed 0.4 more than May 1, "why bother." How sad. I did write down for motivators that I had upcoming gi scope, praying for answers, had full month of unopened Herbalife supplements, and down payment taken care ... Read more

I had my first fleeting thoughts of going astray from the food plan today. My husband took the kids to Burger King and didn't invite me. I was working, he was off, typically I would have met them. That was before crohns. Now, after dia... Read more

At the end of May, I discovered not only do I not like shrimp, I am allergic to them. Hmmm, who would have thought at this age I would still be finding things I'm allergic to! Long story short, my days of poor eating and dealing with freque... Read more
Still in the holding pattern

I wish I could say things are dramatically better, but at least they aren't worse. My sister is on the mend. My husband is diagnosed. My grandmother is as she is and handling it; she's a tough, tough lady. My weight is hovering around ... Read more
Three Year Bad Pattern Broken This Morning

Vefore I knew why my head hurt, my job assignment involved fieldwork usually 3 Saturdays each month. On those 3 Saturdays and usually at least once during the week, I had McDonald's for breakfast. Usually a couple of biscuit or english muffin ... Read more
Staring at the Abyss

I am having a somewhat surreal experience. Every day, I get up, go to work, cook, clean, maybe make plans for the weekend. Job's good, home's fine, girls are great. My husband, grandmother, and sister all three are facing serious medical ... Read more

2011 was one wild ride. Inside, outside, and I think inside out, but what a year it was. When I thought all the inside stuff had been bleached, wrung out and dried in the sun...nope, there was more to be addressed. I guess there always wi... Read more
Measuring Inches
Friday, December 16, 2011      2 comments

Two years ago when I hit critical mass, I was too sick to eat for several weeks before I finally answered reality's knock. I weighed myself and measured everywhere. I draw a silouette and put the measurements in a colored marker, just my thing... Read more
