Don't take my word for it! A picture is worth a thousand words!!! ... Read more
Gunning for the Goal
Wednesday, September 29, 2010      8 comments

I did great yesterday at the mandatory social event and ate NOTHING. I didn't even eat my whole 12" Subway sandwich, even though it was well within my calorie allotment. (ham, no cheese, all the veggies, brown mustard). I'm giving myself cred... Read more
Busy Day, Busy Week
Tuesday, September 28, 2010      5 comments

Today's an 8:00 am - 8:00 pm day with a mandated social event at the end. I'm thinking about getting a Subway sandwich to eat in my office before the "do" so I'm not tempted to eat the bad stuff at the social event. TC has a doctor's app... Read more
Doing OK
Saturday, September 25, 2010      12 comments

Just checking in. I had a really busy week and have another one next week. I've done pretty well this week eating mindfully, exercising, etc., but I have to admit I've jumped on the scale a few times and I'm not showing any loss. In fact,... Read more
Keeping on Keepin' On
Wednesday, September 22, 2010      7 comments

Thanks for everyone's kind words yesterday when I was in my funk about losing the same 6 pounds endlessly this year. You are all right; 6 pounds down is 6 pounds down. AND there's no place to look but forward. I can't do anything about th... Read more
I'm Sisyphus
Tuesday, September 21, 2010      8 comments

I was feeling pretty great yesterday -- 161 yesterday, down from 167 on August 1. Six pounds in 7 seven weeks? Not my best effort, but not terrible either. Then I looked at the calendar where I post my weight every week and flipped back. ... Read more
Warning! the new year may be closer than it appears!
Sunday, September 19, 2010      5 comments

I wasn't going to blog today because I am spending the day catching up on my schoolwork AND getting my calendar in order. Good grief, I'm going to meet myself coming and going during the rest of September. I mean really. BUT. I just have... Read more
Day 4: Danger Friday!
Friday, September 17, 2010      8 comments

Friday is always dangerous because of the "It's the Weekend!" mentality. Time to kick back, go out to dinner, drink a little wine, take a day off from the exercise, etc. In fact it's 5:00 a.m. and I recognize I already have started that th... Read more
Day 3: If it's to be, it's up to me!
Thursday, September 16, 2010      2 comments

I announced yesterday that I was ready to recommit, and Nancy promptly challenged: "What steps do you plan to take?" Ha! always nipping at my heels! Well, I did spend a few days trying to figure out where my problem area is. And actually... Read more
Time to GET COMMITTED
Wednesday, September 15, 2010      8 comments

I got on the scale today and geez, it wasn't as bad as I thought. Yay me! I started August at 167. I ended August at 161.5. Today, September 15, I'm at 163. I WILL be in the 150's by the end of the month. It's 4:55 a.m. and I have to... Read more
Gearing up
Tuesday, September 14, 2010      5 comments

I can't explain why I completely fell off the wagon last week but I've been doing a lot of thinking about what I need to change. The biggest thing is I have to get back to the Beck Basics and put forth the small amount of time and effort th... Read more
Starting Over
Monday, September 13, 2010      8 comments

I couldn't get back on track after Labor Day weekend. We had such a marvelous long weekend camping that going back to work on Tuesday just put me in a bad mood. I like my job, but I'm soo ready for the next phase of my life! TC took early... Read more
I'm a Light Switch
Tuesday, September 07, 2010      6 comments

I'm either "on" or "off." This holiday weekend I was OFF. Actually did great with the exercise because we like to hike, but horrible with the calorie end of things. I'm up two pounds, so back to my regularly scheduled program today.... Read more
No-Rest-For-The-Wicked Day
Thursday, September 02, 2010      9 comments

I COULD go to the fitness center but TC says "absolutely not." I hate to tell you how fast I gave it up! I have 50 online tests to grade, I'm giving staff computer training today at 1:00 pm that I should have prepared for already but haven... Read more
Revising my goals
Tuesday, August 31, 2010      7 comments

I got my GoWearFit armband about 2 months ago, and I set it up to be pretty aggressive. You know -- I said I was going to work out 1.5 hours a day (60 minutes at a moderate pace, 30 minutes at a vigorous pace), and that I was going to burn 2,60... Read more
