I did all the things on my list for today. WARRVESTS: 9/9. Day 2 of 30 for my streaks! ... Read more
I wish I didn't have to come up with a title
Tuesday, February 16, 2010      10 comments

I am disgusted that I keep having to use titles like "Starting Over", "Back to it", etc. I'm feeling good that I 'fessed up about my bad week last week so I can move on. It's interesting to feel more accountable to people I've never met ... Read more
Coward!
Monday, February 15, 2010      4 comments

Had a bad diet week last week; I know I'm up so I didn't get on the scale today. I know -- I'm a coward! The neighbor is in the hospital with pneumonia. Really bad on top of his emphysema. Today I've had a good day. I know how Van... Read more
How I want to get old.
Sunday, February 14, 2010      10 comments

Spent another couple of hours with the elderly neighbor today, and it has occurred to me that I've observed how many people age and get old. And this is what I've learned: I do NOT want to stay in my house No Matter What, like it's some ki... Read more
It all started over a pile of sh*t
Saturday, February 13, 2010      8 comments

The father in law is doing OK; treading water for now until we find out if he is strong enough for surgery. The neighbor is NOT doing well and will probably have to go into a nursing home. He fell again trying to get to the bathroom in the... Read more
Quick Blog

Sometimes life just comes blasting at you like a firehose. And you never see it coming! Had snow days Monday & Tuesday. Wednesday, problems with our newest instructor that is my responsibility to resolve today. My father-in-law needs a h... Read more
good news and bad news
Monday, February 08, 2010      9 comments

The good news -- I am down to 159.5. It LOOKS like a half-pound loss but really more, since I never updated to show what I gained the last week or two. I'm very happy with this. Now the goal is to CONTINUE ON to 155 by the end of the mont... Read more
feeling exuberant!
Sunday, February 07, 2010      9 comments

I was trying to find an adjective for my status yesterday that described how I felt -- and EXUBERANT was it! For the first time in MANY weekends, I've felt strong and confident that I am in the groove. It's about staying focused IN THE MOM... Read more
Answer to BLW: NOTHIN' MATTERS BUT THE WEEKEND!
Friday, February 05, 2010      6 comments

BLW made some interesting comments on Vandal's blog yesterday: "Some times it does feel as if I've fallen into a deep hole and am trying to climb up a rope but then you get up and out and the groove is on. We just need to know this cycles a... Read more
A good day!
Thursday, February 04, 2010      0 comments

Hey, I've been on the computer all day grading papers so I'm D-U-N done! But I'm still good on both my challenges and had a great day. Later! TG... Read more
CHALLENGED!
Wednesday, February 03, 2010      5 comments

Hah! But not in a bad way. Vandal has challenged me to 30 days without alcohol. Talk about a challenge! However, I MUST do it if I am to get past the 160 mark and STAY THERE. Nancy15togoal has challenged me to get in the 150's! She... Read more
Struggling has its benefits
Tuesday, February 02, 2010      8 comments

Weird, but true. If I didn't struggle, it means I would have given up entirely. If I would have given up entirely, I would be right back where I started, and I'M NOT. I'm nearly 25 pounds lighter than when I started. Every time... Read more
Fake it 'til you make it
Monday, February 01, 2010      3 comments

Don't know why I'm not "feeling it", but I've had a bad couple of days. I'm mad that I can't ever hold on to the 150's. It takes me 3 weeks to get down to 159 and 3 days to head right out of them again. I'm generally good during the wee... Read more
Cocooning Weekend Over
Sunday, January 31, 2010      2 comments

Golly, we only got 3 inches of snow here but we didn't even try to get out until Saturday morning. None of the roads had been plowed NOT EVEN the freeway so it was a little hairy, but we got to where we were going safely! Today we got out ... Read more
Ketchup Day
Friday, January 29, 2010      5 comments

Clever title; really it's a "catch up day". SNOW DAY IN ARKANSAS! We have freezing rain and practically the whole state is shut down -- at least all the schools, even the universities. Since I caught up on grading yesterday, today I... Read more
