Feeling Worn Out
Thursday, March 04, 2010      7 comments

Today will be a late day and very busy. I've just gotten off the dreadmill -- 4.0 miles in 65 minutes, thankyouveddymuch. My lunch is packed, my dinner is planned and I hope I can stick to it. I'll be starved by the time I get home at 8pm.... Read more
March Forward
Wednesday, March 03, 2010      4 comments

SVELTEGODDESS's status says she is "looking forward to March and all the positive choices she will be making this month". Isn't that a great outlook? I am constantly reenergized by all of the positivity of you *Sparklers*. And when I'm in... Read more
Feeling good
Tuesday, March 02, 2010      8 comments

I want to thank everyone for their responses and kudos yesterday. I feel now that my week in Michigan, out of my comfort zone, does NOT have to be a diet-breaker. I will follow much of the advice: take a cooler, take recipes that I can cook ... Read more
Yay! New Low
Monday, March 01, 2010      10 comments

I am happy! I weigh 157, down 1.5 pounds this week. What's REALLY worth celebrating is that this is the second week in a row I've weighed in the 150's. I've had a great deal of trouble STAYING in the 150's -- it's been a real psychologica... Read more
HURRY UP!
Sunday, February 28, 2010      6 comments

Many people have told me over the years not to wish my life away, but I still do it. I want my weight to come off NOW. I want to get our mortgage paid off NOW. I want to quit my job and start the next phase of my life NOW. Well, desp... Read more
Typical Low-Key Saturday
Saturday, February 27, 2010      4 comments

I am still hanging in there. Not doing too great trying to leave food on my plate OR staying at the dinner table until 20 minutes have elapsed...but I'm still working on it. My parents used to make us sit at the dinner table until we fin... Read more
The DREADmill
Friday, February 26, 2010      8 comments

Hi Everyone! Nancy made a good point about the DREADMILL perhaps being being a negative term, and I would get that if it was anyone else! But for me, it's actually a term of endearment! My treadmill is, and for the last 10 years alway... Read more
Staying the Course
Thursday, February 25, 2010      7 comments

Today is a busy day for me -- I have a lot to catch up on at work. However, my meals are planned and I'll exercise before I go in. Today I'll continue to work on leaving food on my plate and eating slowly and mindfully. I'll set the... Read more
Day 17 - End Overeating, Part 2
Wednesday, February 24, 2010      2 comments

I am trying to "leave food on my plate", which is Day 17 of the Beck book. This is not always easy -- do you know how rarely I (and probably you) eat off a plate?? However, I was VERY mindful today. I actually did NOT scrape the botto... Read more
Day 17 - End Overeating
Tuesday, February 23, 2010      10 comments

I had an "aha" moment this morning. I've only got 14.5 pounds to lose, and I've got to get serious about working the WHOLE Beck book if I'm going to get there. The closer I get to my goal, the more important it is that I tighten up my habits. ... Read more
Planning My Work and Working My Plan
Monday, February 22, 2010      5 comments

I am VERY EXCITED. After a jag that started on Feb 8 with a Monday snowday (and lasted a full week), I AM DOWN INTO the 150's again! 158.5 to be exact. (applause, please!) I'm continuing to use my WARRVESTS strategy; two or three ti... Read more
Recommitting to Beck's
Sunday, February 21, 2010      4 comments

I am trying to read at least 10 minutes out of the Beck book every day, and it's just amazing what wisdom is there. Her emphasis on answering "sabotaging thoughts" with "helpful responses" is really on the money. I've had a great week, a f... Read more
Planes, Shuttle Busses, and Automobiles
Saturday, February 20, 2010      16 comments

Friday started when the alarm went off at 2:45 am. Everything went well, the conference was OUTSTANDING. It was held in the new Cowboy stadium in Dallas, which impressed everyone but me because I'm not a sports fan. We got to have our breakou... Read more
'Til Saturday...
Thursday, February 18, 2010      7 comments

I'm off to a good start today; did 3.5 miles on the treadmill in 55 minutes; did an upper-body Spark Video, have my lunch packed and have had 3 glasses of water. Whew! And it's 9:30 am. I have a busy day today and then tomorrow I have to ... Read more
Late Blog - Quick Update
Wednesday, February 17, 2010      3 comments

Today was a really busy day; long meeting after school, late dinner, off to visit the neighbor in the hospital. It was a good day -- I've met all my goals so my streak is now 3 days long. WARRVESTS: 9/9! I'm using my vision collage ... Read more
