A full month
Not sure if I've ever stuck with this for a full month in a row before. I'm sure I have. But I'm excited that I have been fully tracking for a month now, and lost 10 pounds. Tomorrow is my actual month, so I'll weigh in then. I'm just happy to b... Read more
accepting me... completely
I don't have tons of willpower. I hate working out. I am lazy, and I like TV. I love good-for-me food, but an occasional gooey treat is awesome. I quit every diet, weight loss program, or "lifestyle change" I ever start.
BUT... This is not ... Read more
we're working... we're working...
So I'm working part time up at a different school helping them with some stuff. That's a whole different story, but it turns out to be a good amount of money.
I have 2 interviews tomorrow in Houston, and that's really awesome. Neither is the ... Read more
I could be a nun (with Dr Who)
I'm at the play therapy institute at the University of North Texas.
First of all, I am staying in the dorm. I got a mini fridge and stocked it with stuff for my breakfast, lunch and dinner. Having Taco Bell or Chik-Fil-A in the student union ... Read more
fourth with the fam & my continuing saga
I'm in Houston for the fourth with my family. It's been a great trip. We blew up a bunch of fireworks yesterday and went to the Johnson Space Center today. It's been interesting to be around the small children (a just-turned-8 and a 12-weeks-old... Read more
broken heart the hard way
So I've had some bad news recently. Compared to people facing deaths of loved ones or debilitating diseases, my news was not so bad. But it broke my heart just the same. My job for next year has changed, not by my choice. While it might end up b... Read more
Broken habits the easy way
I've never in my life been the skinny one. Never athletic, never in the misses or juniors sizes, the last time I wore a size 6 was when I was in 6th grade. See, I'm fat. Like fatty fatty 2x4. I have been through chunky, thick, chubby, fluffy, yo... Read more
I've lost a whole foot!
I measured the first day of Bootcamp. Since that morning, I've lost 12 inches around my body. I've lost 4 on my waist, 2 on each thigh, 1.5 on each arm, and 1 on my hips. I measured my neck for the first time today, to see if it shrinks, too.

Good patterns, good times
My fasting blood sugar today was 114. That's pretty low for me. Then I looked at my averages on my meter. 30-day average is 138. 14-day average is 128. 7-day average is 120. Anyone else seeing a pattern here? I can't wait until my next appointme... Read more
Boot camp, boot camp
I'm thinking of POTC "Bootstrap's bootstraps..."
I switched day 7 with day 8 by mistake, but I'm still going strong! I've been working and taking my lunch, so I'm excited about that. I didn't take my blood sugar today, but I did take all my me... Read more

So Tuesday is almost over. It's been an ok day. Two weeks of school are down, and we have something like 36 to go. Yeesh! But they've been good weeks. I'm having a much better year than last year. I'm feeling valued and needed and not feeling li... Read more
the iphone app ruined me
I used to be pretty active on Spark, getting points, huddling, posting on my team boards, etc. But the iphone app made logging my nutrition so easy I slacked off when I got busy. And my life really is busy what with working, taking classes, etc.... Read more
I usually walk on a gazelle, when I walk. But yesterday I bought a new exercise toy. It's a Gold's Gym cycle thingy that is just the pedals. You use it while sitting in a chair. I love it!! I have used it while watching tv, reading, and just ab... Read more
Ghostbusters moment -- We're ready to believe (in) you!
I was reading some intros from new members and thinking, gosh, I really believe they can do it! I can't say I've finished or I've done it, but I believe I can do it, too!
I'm feeling particularly uplifted today because I have lost 4 inches of... Read more
