5 years? What?
Wednesday, May 02, 2018      2 comments

Yeah. It's been over five years since I last posted. After watching my mom die in 2010, I got to watch my dad spiral downward the next two years. He stopped going to the doctor, stopped getting treatment for his prostate cancer and, as a result,... Read more
Just doing my thing...
Friday, October 19, 2012      0 comments

It's amazing when things just sort of fall into place. I bought a FitBit about four months ago and I've been wearing it pretty consistently. Up until two months ago, I hadn't made any adjustments to my eating. At the beginning of September I ... Read more
What if I never lose another pound?
Monday, July 23, 2012      3 comments

I went to my 20 year high school reunion this weekend and had a couple of revelations. 1. I am very comfortable with myself and who I am. 2. People are just people. Yeah, I know that, but try applying that to the people you went to ... Read more
Making up words
Friday, June 29, 2012      0 comments

Today's word is awesomosity. The state of being so awesome that awesome cannot describe how awesome you are. My task this weekend is to remember that even though it's been slow going recently, I am still making progress. As DH pointed o... Read more
Major Pet Peeve and a Major Win
Thursday, June 28, 2012      1 comments

First, the pet peeve: Why is that some people think it is all right to clip their fingernails in public? A couple weeks ago I was sitting behind a woman on the bus and got hit in the cheek with one of the clippings. Ick. Today someone on th... Read more
Consistency, Consistency, Consistency

Be consistent and you will get results. We all know this to be true. Keep plugging away and eventually you will get to where you need to be. Persistence and consistancy will achieve what fad diets promise but rarely deliver. I know this.... Read more
Holy Raging Energy, Batman!

I feel like I could climb Mt Rainier right now, which is weird because I worked my butt off this morning. I sprang out of bed…Okay. I can’t finish that lie. My alarm went off at 5:45 and I shut it off. My second alarm went off at 6:00 and I ... Read more
Not feeling the love right now
Monday, June 04, 2012      1 comments

I kicked butt in April and I THOUGHT I kicked butt in May. Well, okay. I did. The problem is my NSVs aren't reflecting my super awesome kicking butt-ness. Ha! Bet you thought I was going to say that the scale isn't showing my efforts. It's... Read more
The 7 S's
Friday, June 01, 2012      1 comments

The other night my husband came home after his class and presented the 7 S's to me. "What are the 7 S's?" I can hear you ask. This is his personal program for personal and family enrichment this summer. 1. Savings This one i... Read more

When I woke up this morning I was exhausted and more than a little angry. The exhausted I knew right away as I’d been tossing and turning until the wee hours of the morning and my alarm at 5:45 this morning was NOT a welcome thing. The angry w... Read more
No, No, No, No, No!
Wednesday, May 16, 2012      1 comments

I’ve had a hard time trying to figure out what I want to say in today’s blog. The scale was NOT my friend this morning, and that’s been rare. Contrary to common sense and SP advice, I weigh myself daily. I do this for the very simple reason t... Read more
If you want to be somebody else, change your mind...
Monday, May 07, 2012      0 comments

I was listening to the 90's station on Pandora this weekend and Change Your Mind by Sister Hazel started playing. I'd never really listened to the lyrics before and when the words began to register it was like someone hit me on the head with a ... Read more
Time to replace my shoes
Friday, April 27, 2012      1 comments

It all started on Tuesday when I was walking from my office to the South Lake Union building, which is about 2 miles. Most of the walk was fairly uneventful--I listened to tunes and looked at the scenery as I walked. A couple blocks from my d... Read more
I'm Just Gonna Ask
Thursday, April 26, 2012      3 comments

If I had any doubt in my mind (and I don’t) about striving for a healthier lifestyle and losing weight, a conversation I had this morning would have convinced me it’s time to stop messing around. I walked into the break room to rinse out my cof... Read more
MHW Vacation
Tuesday, April 17, 2012      1 comments

You know... Mental Health Week! I've reached the point of burnout at work and the stress is spilling over into the rest of my life. Hence, the vacation. But it's not a vacation where we go anywhere. There will be no long car rides with... Read more
