I just want to fit into my stuff again

I used to be one of those obnoxious people who could eat anything and never gain weight. I couldn't gain weight when that was the goal even. It's not longer the case and now I really have to start paying more attention to what I eat and what I do.

Other things - I'm in the process of doing a re-write on a book I hope to ultimately get published.

Spiritually - I consider myself a non-denominational pagan. ;)

I am seriously addicted to reading books. It's rare for me to be reading less than three books as a time. I am so addicted, that I recently decided to give in to the audiobook world. The 15 minute commute to work was just "free" time I wasn't reading.

My Goals:
The newest goal (as of 9-25-2014) :

I've managed to stay in goal range for a year, but I have jaw sugery coming up, so I've been trying to stay on the high side of the range.

Attempting the C25K program again. I hate running, but I hate that me knees make it almost impossible to run. If I quit running, I want it to be on my terms. Besides, I signed up for a zombie 5k and I'm scared to death of zombies, so I really have to get my time down so I'm tortured for a shorter amount of time. ;)

My Program:
Tracking my food and workouts.

Trying to extend the amount of time I can live through a cardio workout.

Start finding ways to give myself more time for writing.

Personal Information:
Married for 23 years. We have 3 boys.

The oldest (age 26) is autistic and recently found a job after being out of work for most of last year after a bout of severe depression.

The middle son (affectionately called the boy) is 22 and studying creative writing and music in college. He made the Dean's List spring and this past fall semester. But then to keep us on our toes, was put on academic probation. Hoping for a strong return in the fall.

The youngest is 9. Yes, we did forget how that happens. He loves camping, baseball, basketball, running around, reading, telling stories.

Other Information:
I have alternate realities in my head that I write about. If I could get something published, that would be wonderful, but unlikely. Still going to give it a try though.

I read. My husband says I'm addicted, but I could stop any time I wanted to. Not likely to happen in my lifetime.

I think there is no better way to clean house and do my dishes than listening to an audiobook. Boy, if I had a compute I would love to listen. emoticon

It does take a major bite out of the day, but my feeling is that if I were awake, I wouldn't be accomplishing anything of note anyway - I'd just be moping around. Better to respect your body's needs and save your self-discipline for things like good food choices. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Thank you for your well-wishes today - I hate having a cold, but I'm lucky the sun has been shining today and I've been sitting around in it (covered with a blanket!) and generally using the day to get myself together. I've got a week off work - typical to get a cold, huh?!

Thanks for the comment about Race for Life; I walked with a group of women last year (well, I actually ended up sort of skipping most of the way!) - but this year I am definitely going to run it - for my own satisfaction and well-being. But walking it is great - and a few jogs here and there, or twirls or boogies can be fitted in to make it more fun. Way to go :)
