Starting yet again
So here I sit blogging for the first time in nearly 2 months. I'm very lucky that I have not gained back any of the weight that I lost several months ago, I've just sort of held steady. However, I have been eating like a pig and eating all the... Read more
One of our neighbors died last week. She was in her 80's and had been fighting cancer for over 5 years. She was a nice lady, and I'm sorry that I won't see her walking through the neighborhood any more. She and her husband often walked with d... Read more
Lazy toad on a log....croak, croak, croak
How is it I missed blogging last week? Was it a busy week? Yes, always. Was it a hectic week? yes -- car died, needed a new battery, got that done, worked out, but only once, and did all the regular weekly stuff....so what was it about the we... Read more
Trying to change the loser attitude
How can I get past the "oh, this one meal won't hurt" attitude? Out of 7 days I had 2.5 really bad meal days. I keep pushing back on myself that I can have this one cheat - after all, I've done SO well up until now. Maybe it's partly that I h... Read more
End of June/My first 5K
So here it is the end of June. I managed to lose the weight I put on during vacation and a little bit more. Then I went and blew it big time yesterday. I ate breakfast lunch and dinner like a person who's going to the electric chair the next ... Read more
Back From Vacation
So after 2 glorious weeks in Hawaii, I only put back on 2.4 pounds. I'm pretty pleased with that small amount, and I'm sure it was all alcohol and macaroni salad! I just couldn't say no to Mai Tais and Lava Flows.....rum is so darn tasty.
I ... Read more
Only one week to go...!
One more week until my vacation starts. I can't wait to get away from it all and enjoy some time in the sun, surf and sand.....but I'm also terrified to go because I know I will probably gain some weight back. I'm going to try so very hard to ... Read more
Two weeks to go!
In two weeks I'll be heading off to Hawaii for our 10th Anniversary celebration. Rather than dreading the beach and the swimsuit and stares, this time I will actually fit into my swimsuit and not look like a sausage trying to escape its stuffin... Read more
Tracking Food is my key
I've been back on SP for two months now, after 2.5 years out -- I tried WW, and failed, I tried exercising harder, helped to trim me up, but no weight lost-- I am finally working with a doctor who is treating my Metabolic Syndrome and PCOS. Whi... Read more
Shingles, a cold and finally, sweet relief
I've been off-line for over a month, and oh, what a month it was. Started out in late January with what felt like a golfball under my left shoulder blade. I had a massage, I sat in hot tub, I took tons of advil all with no relief. The the spo... Read more
Jumped off the plateau
I finally got off the self-imposed plateau I have been stuck at for 3 months. I fudged a bit in November, a lot in December and kept on stuffing my face in January. The main thing I did was begin exercising again in December, so I was staying ... Read more
I'm so tired today I don't even want to think about dinner. And I have to go to a 2 hour meeting tonight....yikes. At least I said no to going to the mexican food restaurant and eating chips and guac. Yay! One good thing today!!... Read more
At my new job, I'm allowed 3 hours per week to work out. I picked Mon, Wed and Thurs from 3-4pm. I work all day, then pop downstairs to the well stocked gym, do 30 minutes on the treadmill at 3mph adjusting the incline up to 3.0 over a 20 minu... Read more
Starting a new Adventure
I don't know why I'm so nervous about starting this new job tomorrow. My face has a rash on it and I'm been moping all day. I am not a stress filled person, and I don't usually freak out and get all drama queen about this type of stuff. I do... Read more
I just avoided having a 70 pound set of attic stairs knock me off a 12 foot ladder. While it wasn't the smartest thing for me to have been on the ladder, my Dad has always encouraged me to be fearless. Therefore, I was up on a 12 foot ladder, ... Read more
