Looking forward to an exciting week.
Many years ago, a friend shared the mantra "LEAP - AND THE NET WILL APPEAR." So many times, we don't do the things we want to, don't make the change we want, stay in our RUT due to FEAR. Due to EXCUSES. Due to LAZINESS. You can talk yourself ... Read more
Well, we narrowed it down to 3. Going to make an offer on the one we like best (which is also priced the highest) and hoping they will be willing to come down. The house has been on the market for 250 days and the seller seems very motivated t... Read more
Whatever I ate last night got stuck...so no food or drink is staying down at all. Crappy by-product of RNY. Even though it's been 14 years since I had it done. Totally sucks...... Read more
Alert! Awesome Weekend About To Appear!
SO ready for the weekend. Keeping our fingers crossed that we find THE house that we can buy that will be our final home for the rest of our lives. Supposed to be sunny and I think Gary is feeling better - so wish us luck!
That Vile, Vile Scale...
So I've been weighing myself every day - NOT because I'm weight obsessed, but because I want to see if there's any patterns I can see in when I'm losing and what kinds of food I'm eating, exercising I'm doing, etc. I really am more focused on m... Read more
Those Voice in My Head - wait! They're Right!
So I got up again today - because I planned and prepared the night before so I wouldn't be able to "think" myself out of it. The cool thing was that I realized in the shower after my workout, when I was really feeling TIRED - I was actively tal... Read more
I Did It!
Got up this morning at 5:45 am, went to the office, went to the fitness center and got on the Elliptical intending to do "probably 20 minutes, it's been awhile so 30 is probably not realistic." HOLY COW. After 5 minutes, I thought I was going t... Read more
Prepped for Success!
Boiled a bunch of eggs, have pre-portioned snacks, and already packed my breakfast, lunch and two snacks for work tomorrow. Packed my jewelry, undies, shoes, dress and toiletries to shower at the fitness center at my office before work. Workou... Read more
Shoe Shopping Today!
Someone is coming to view the house today so we have to vacate for an hour or so. Headed to the mall to shop for cool athletic shoes (pink, I hope) for the workouts I'm starting on Monday. Might try to find some cute workout outfits as well. ... Read more
You Cain't Always Get What You Want....
...but you often will get what you need! One of my co-workers stopped at my office door early this morning. Now, he NEVER has done that before, so I immediately said, "What do you want?" thinking that some big issue had arisen that I needed to... Read more
Had a much better tummy day, but still worked remote just in case. Got personally yelled at by a Senator over the phone for the first time (usually its via email) - so that was special. LOL - it was pretty funny because he went on and on. I j... Read more
Bad Tummy Day - Gross Alert
So last night after working off a few thousand calories, I made sauteed tilapia with tomatoes and some parmesan cheese. Yummy. The problem appeared when suddenly I couldn't eat anymore - something got stuck. Which does happen on occasion beca... Read more
Gave myself a couple of weeks to let the severe pain in my leg subside. Well, it has - and I'm betting it was about the 30 pounds and fluid I had gained. Now that both of those are on the downswing, it's getting much better. Will start out eas... Read more
Don't Be Afraid to Be Coached
"One of the early experiences I had with this concept was in school when I actually started telling people I was shy instead of trying to hide it. I got all sorts of encouragement from classmates. I didn't know it at the time, but this was one o... Read more
The Difference 14 Days Can Make
About a year ago, I started slowly dropping the habits that I had worked hard to get in place - low carbs, high protein, daily exercise, water, blogging. Simple stuff - no really - SIMPLE STUFF. It's not hard at all once you get yourself off ... Read more
