4/29/2015 - Try, try again
Wednesday, April 29, 2015      4 comments

Well, the first third of 2015 has been a bust when it comes to getting my fitness and nutrition groove back. The big move to Bee Cave, TX is coming v-e-r-y q-u-i-c-k-l-y though. It's pretty much do-or-die time if I want to be reasonably fit by... Read more
Just a statistic.... but I'm back

I was here last on 2/10/14. At goal. After a bobble. On 2/14/14 my young, fit, beloved uncle thought he had a stomach flu or something. On 2/16/14 he was diagnosed with brain cancer. On 3/16/14 he died. That was in the middle of a... Read more
At Goal Again
Monday, February 10, 2014      4 comments

I started strength training again 4 weeks ago. I am already back at goal weight (without counting calories or consciously restricting calories). I haven't been at goal weight for 7 months and I spent a bit of that time not only above goal but ... Read more
Dirty, dirty holidays
Tuesday, January 07, 2014      2 comments

My holidays consisted of splurge after splurge over 2 weeks with family. It was wonderful to have two weeks with family... but I probably could have treated my body a little better. I ate what I wanted. I drank what I wanted. And, while I ex... Read more
So, so, so close.....

I've had success getting back to maintenance range in the last 2 months. I lost 7 pounds in 6 weeks and have just 1 more pound to get back to goal weight. I've also dropped some body fat and am below 22%. It's been about 6 months since I've b... Read more
Tired people don't make good decisions

I have not been here forever. I really need to start sparking again. I've had a rough time with maintenance since returning from Europe in early August. I've never gotten too far out of maintenance range but I've been consistently out mo... Read more
Lack of sleep makes you fat?
Tuesday, October 01, 2013      5 comments

Living on 6 hours of sleep a night is exhausting! I made a commitment to myself to stay awake to support my son as he develops study/homework and organizational habits. He's really motivated to get this under control this year but I don't like ... Read more

I can not believe it's been 2 weeks since school started, 2 weeks since I posted here. Getting the family back into the swing of things sure isn't easy but we are getting there! I started my bootcamp program this week and am running a 5K ... Read more
Beyond Bootcamp
Wednesday, September 04, 2013      1 comments

I'm still in range and still wavering over whether or not to go to the doctor over my shoulder (feet, hip, and hand) pains. I decided to sign up for Beyond Bootcamp at my gym and put some focused effort into eating clean and doing some moderate... Read more
Back in range and every day is a new day
Monday, August 26, 2013      3 comments

I'm down just over 3 pounds since last Monday so I am safely (is that ever true?) back in range. But I'm still 'starting over' every day. Too many splurges one day. Skipping my supplements another. Forgoing exercise a third. BAH! But ... Read more

Long time without posting.... but I had a few comments recently so I thought I should post. In part to help myself and in part to be real and honest with people who see my bikini picture and think I still look like that. I had recurring ... Read more
Pushing Through
Thursday, February 28, 2013      1 comments

I came down with my son's cold over the weekend. Loads of congestion! I gained over 5 pounds in 3 days before I realized that I was sick, not just dehydrated from our day in Boston. I started taking decongestants and I've dropped 6 pounds sin... Read more
16 Months of Maintenance
Thursday, February 21, 2013      5 comments

Nothing profound to report. Today marks 16 months of maintenance. My body fat is in a good place. My lean mass is in a good place. My overall fitness is in a good, but not peak, place. And I'm happy. That is not profound... except th... Read more
Up, down, up
Friday, February 15, 2013      3 comments

This was a CRAZY week. Lots of ups and downs. Ups were a wonderful Valentine's Day and a general feeling of contentment. Downs were the unexpected death of a family member who never let anyone know he was sick and stress surrounding the blizz... Read more
This getting in shape thing? What worked for my body seems to be working for my house!
Thursday, February 07, 2013      4 comments

Another week has come and gone. Still maintaining my goal weight easily. Still working out 4-5 times a week. Feeling strong and faster. Happy. I have now had a clean house for a month. I honestly can't remember the last time the house... Read more
