It's been a while, so I thought I'd say hi. Thanksgiving went well here and my plan is very solid right now. Wedding plans are coming along and so am I, toward my weight-loss goal.
Today, right after lunch, I started to feel sick. I stuc... Read more
I'm posting links to the recipes I will make this weekend, mostly for selfish reasons to make it easy to find these recipes in Internet-land again when I need 'em!
Beef barley stew (I hardly EVER eat beef, but what a nice seasonal treat thi... Read more
It's Tuesday afternoon and I have the next five days off, YAY! (AND we have a teacher-only day on Monday the 30th and a teacher-only afternoon on Tuesday, Dec. 1...these kids have it so good!!)
Even though I stuck to a somewhat normal sleep... Read more
The weather is gorgeous, I got a great night's sleep, and I am just feeling fantastic today. At noon, which is in just over two hours, there's going to be an open house at my condo, so I got up early and I've been cleaning and it smells great i... Read more
My weight loss has totally stalled, way too early. After losing about five pounds last week, I gained a couple back and haven't lost any more. Plus, the first couple of pounds I lost had been from a temporary gain anyway, so I sort of haven't ... Read more

I went for a run today with ear warmers, neck warmers, and gloves - maybe I went a bit overboard - it was in the high 40s - but I'm getting excited about winter running (except running on an icy sidewalk - no thanks!). I mapped the run and it w... Read more
This morning Jess and I went to Castle Island in South Boston. I had never been there before although I had heard about it when I was researching new places to run. It was su... Read more
One day down, and my weight dropped over two pounds overnight! I was disciplined all day yesterday, controlling my portions and working hard at the gym. I had to guess about calories for lunch and dinner, but my best guess brought me to about ... Read more
My wedding is in 14 weeks!!! I must be the best I can be on my wedding day. This is going to take real time and effort - now is not the time to whine about how difficult it is. The harsh reality is that I have to override my natural tendencie... Read more

I've been eating mostly healthy lately with a few less-than-perfect decisions (someone put some really nice leftover birthday cake in the teachers room). I've been going to the gym most days of the week for about 45 minutes, including strength ... Read more
