but really, I realllllly am .. and I say that because my cardiologist chewed my rear end good and gave me one month to get it together and come back and see him - and I bette... Read more
Well, I managed to eat better today and even fit in a little exercise. Granted, I am out of shape.. but it's a start, I guess. I got off work and took my kids to the YMCA. We swam and played around in the pool for about an hour and a half. I... Read more
Hello everyone... that is, if you remember me.
The last few months have been trying and it won't let up at least until December, I'm guessing. I started a new job March 16th and underwent 10 weeks of classroom training that I thought would ... Read more
Valentine's Day has passed yet the chocolate lingers on. The "clearance" chocolate at the grocery store is driving me crazy! Put that stuff away!! I'm always been a sucker for a bargain, but I have to leave that one right where it sits... star... Read more
Is it just me or does it seem like when you're trying to "diet" you want to eat everything in sight? If I can't have it, I want it when normally I may not eat it for weeks... somehow, now that I can't have chips, for example, I want them all ... Read more

Oh my Gosh!!
I was doing so good on my plan UNTIL dinner last night. To celebrate my mother's retirement, my husband and I took her and my stepfather out to eat at Texas de Brazil. The salad bar was great!!! (not so bad, you're thinking) It... Read more
It's Monday, but it's the end of my Tuesday at work... working third shift wreaks havoc on my body and mind. I can't remember what day it is half of the time and my body is way confused when it comes to sleep. I believe I have developed the ab... Read more
Thank God I'm back on my old shift. I never thought I'd say that, but working nights gives me the opportunity to go to daytime classes at the YMCA and get so much more exercise in than working 5 days a week. I must be crazy.
Today I manag... Read more
I finally got it!!!
It's taken me a while to get the kinks worked out, but I've got it!!! I've tried a few different things and this seems to work the best... I get up about 1/2 hour early and exercise (weight training and stretching) and ... Read more
