Went out to local Jeep Blessing today. More people than last year, well over 1K vehicles there and quite a few Cherokee's. :) Did (rode along) 2 course runs, only needed tow once. Should have some interesting footage of the front of vehicle... Read more

Still on the wagon so to speak. Little itty losses this last couple weeks but it means maybe I'm finding the right balance. Glad the snow is nearly gone, makes it easier to get out and do things. Actually got up recently and drove to the civi... Read more

Hoping I was going down this Monday but alas, up 4 lbs. I totally chose to overdo my weekend eating and I shouldn't have been surprised. At the least, my waist measurement went down 1". I'll take what I can get :) So earlier this week ha... Read more

Have decided to weigh in only every other week, alternating measurements on the other days. 2 pounds down since last weigh. Below 300 now (ok, if only by a smidge). Still, it's reassuring to see the steps work if I work them. Bottom line tho,... Read more

Aww, I missed blogging on PI day :) I'm struggling today after a bad hunger day yesterday. I've been getting up about 2 hours earlier than normal for the last weekish so I could get more stuff done and exercise. I've alternated strength ... Read more

There's a cool date, almost imposing. Hubby and I have some old friends who are also big people. Very big, but good people. We go out every so often, waiting while they struggle to walk from their car to the restaurant table. It's hard not to... Read more

Had a slight computer malfunction, now on a brand new laptop with win8. OMG. Call me an old dog but darn it gets tiring learning new OS's. This will be my 8th operating system to learn. Yah, I've been using computers since the early days. ... Read more

A typical Wednesday, morning phone meeting with the team at work. A few minutes in I realized my temper was up. I don't always realize when I'm angry, nor do I always understand why. Anger does seem to be one of my primary emotions. Years ago... Read more

Or don't rather. For years I've been working on the loosing weight thing, both with exercise and trying to change my eating habits. The one thing I used to swear was that I'd give up chocolate (not my big thing either), or any other food item... Read more

But it is a little frustrating to do everything as I should for a week, walking an average of 45 minutes a day, keeping calories to 1500 a day, etc. and not see even a tiny bit of weight move. Always the hardest part, feeling like all the work ... Read more

Part of trying get a little healthier life is to look at my life in an honest way. I know inside that some things have to change, not as in a punishment way but as in an opportunity to add more interesting or enjoyable activities. I finally ge... Read more

Been trying, or least mindful of things this last week. Granted the weekends are a little harder to track when I'm the go or eating out with friends. I've been making soup almost every week for the last couple of months it seems. Nice to have... Read more

It's high time, was running around 275 and now am around 295 from the last year or so. I'm tired and in pain all the time these days, partly because of the head/neck pain I gained from being sick a few years ago. I know I need to walk more, th... Read more
