The Non-Magical, Non-Mystery Tour

Bear with me, I'm sort of a goofball, and as you will learn shortly, EXCESSIVELY VERBOSE.

I plan to start by losing around 120 pounds; I'll decide on a final goal once I get down there and see what the landscape is like (it's been a while!)

I lost 30 pounds on Weight Watchers in 2009, but then stress & life intervened and I gained it back, plus a little extra.

So here I am. Uh... hi!

I blog a bit here and there, as I have thoughts. ...

I blog a bit here and there, as I have thoughts. Anything that shows up is likely to be long (VERBOSE!) so if you do want to read it, you might want to grab a cup of coffee.

(I must give credit where credit is due: my page title comes from a blog by Linda Holmes, who is awesome and a better writer than I'll ever hope to be. My avatar is my version of what I would look like if the ever excellent Natalie Dee consented to draw my portrait.)

Work on ST, building muscle with weights & body weight exercises
Someday do "real" pushups!

My Program:
Tracking, using data to make changes.

I continuously need to work on getting enough protein, keeping carbs down, and watch fat and junky food on busy days.

Fitness - get some minutes most days of the week. Walking (dog walking + some longer walks) but mostly swimming.

Mostly my plan is to not do anything I would hate to do "forever." So I don't plan to work out 7 days a week or give up any particular kind of food or anything like that.

Personal Information:
I live in The Jerz; bought a house 7/2013! I love my freakin house.


Other Information:
Lifelong dream realized 11/9/2013:

I adopted my very own smooshy little rescue dog!!

DOGGGGG! My life is complete, finally.

Hahaha, I assure you, not all teams are like that! My team does not require people to share their menus or do a calorie/calorie out for the day kind of stuff. But it is good for continuous motivation and regularly exercising.

I hadn't posted a blog in a while, but I have definitely been here. Every day. Even on all those days you were not!!

Yeah you do NOT get to ask where I've been cause I've been RIGHT HERE the WHOLE TIME. Patiently (not so patiently) awaiting your return.

I would never love BLC'ers more than you. I just wish you'd get on a BLC team with me! We might scare people though - many people are not accustomed to severe sarcasm. hahaha

Thank gawd you're back - sometimes I think people were born without a sense of humour.

How is Turtlepuppy?

Have you done a disappearing act, too?

To misquote Rocky IV, "if i can come back, and you can come back, we all can come back".

Wait, that doesn't make much sense at all. Eh, you know what I'm blathering about, more or less.
