So many things going on!

Life is crazy of my own making. I'm planning a house build, a winter holiday to New Zealand, a HUGE survey at work and returning to college classes in September. I can't wait!... Read more

Woot! Birthday time!

Not mine, the Mister's. But that means cake and lasagna. I'm making spinach veggie lasagna tonight and picking up a Japanese cake on the way home. I love the Japanese bakeries SO MUCH!... Read more

Awesome lunch today!

We tried a new grocery store the other day, not as easy to drive to (lots of traffic down a one-way street) but it's only a train stop and a few blocks away. And they have GREAT bagged salads for cheap. I'm really in love with daikon right now a... Read more

Costa Rica makes it through!

We love World Cup time at our house. With family from Brasil and Costa Rica and the USA finally performing at a World Cup level, we are SO EXCITED! I only wish I could watch the games in real time (and in Spanish.) But I'll deal with yelling at ... Read more

New Phone today, super excited.

My old phone was great, it did al of the things I need a phone to do. Like make and receive calls. But it didn't sync with my FitBit, and I'm so stoked to be able to see progress better now. Quite a few of the guys at work have them also, and it... Read more

I love Japan, buuutttt . . .

Not knowing what is in my food is mildly irritating. Most days I can get a good sense of my caloric intake and I make food from scratch as much as I can. But there are some GREAT salads at the konbinis, I just can't track nutrition when I eat th... Read more

Feeling good!

Took a food break yesterday after a stressful day but I was still aware of my volume. I ate pizza, but not as much as I normally would. I also discovered that vegetarian spicy vinegar chicharones are Muy Delicioso! I had to give them to my boy s... Read more

Doing okay so far.

I'm loving the new site features since I took a hiatus! The goal board and new start page are great! I'm also liking my new fitbit Flex, but I haven't quite figured out the sleep function yet. And it won't sync to my phone, but that's becau... Read more

Back in the saddle.

Armed with a new FitBit Flex and new resolve. It's lunchtime and I'm prepared.... Read more

Today will be a wash. It's soul food day.

I'm okay with this, though. I've been making pretty good choices, and I'm still under my max without w whole lot of effort. And February 3rd the new fitness/diet program from BeachBody comes out and I'm pretty excited. I loved the reset last yea... Read more

And a new year begins.

It's a big holiday here in Japan. We're headed to Yokohama to go ice skating. I've never seen my husband ice skate, and I don't think the kids ever have. I grew up in New England, ice skating on frozen ponds. I miss those days. I'm so in love wi... Read more

Back again. This is a bumpy road I'm on.

But I'll push through. Kid #1 is seeing a nutritionist now; he's 5'5" 210 at 12 years old. I think a lot of it is depression and the fact that he's home all day and eats a lot when he's bored. But we're working on learning new foods and trying t... Read more

Final Push for the term!

I just remembered that I have a 4-5 page term paper due Saturday by Midnight. It's Thursday after 9 PM now. Ahhhh! I need to get started. It's going to be a big school day Saturday!... Read more

Hypo Thyroid? Apnea? No one knows.

Got some labs done today, and I'm relaly hoping that they point to a diagnosis. I really don't want to have to wait for weeks and then get a sleep study done. I'm hoping that the labs come back and show SOMETHING so I can get some relief. I'm so... Read more

Wow. Fuji really took it out of me.

That climb was no joke. I was down hard for two days with icy hot on my legs and my foam roller my constant companion. Whew! But a buddy and I are contemplating climbing the whole mountain next year. Most folks just start at the fifth station (w... Read more
