Falling Down...
Tuesday, March 10, 2009      1 comments

I am on third shift. It is nearly the anniversary of my ex's death. More friends and family are dying recently. I may have been overtraining. Whatever... pick any one or two of the above. It can make it hard to keep going. Take all of ... Read more

Exchanging emails today with one of my Sparkbuddies got me to thinking. This really is a great thing. SparkPeople has really been a great gift. It has given me great resources to help me achieve my goals. It has put me in touch with like-... Read more
Durned Third Shift!
Sunday, February 08, 2009      0 comments

I returned to a third shift schedule this week. In the last 15 years with this company, I have spent at least ten of them on third shift. Every time I come back to it, it gets harder to adapt. I didn't sleep at all for the first few day... Read more

Yesterday I was scheduled for eleven miles. I was dragging my feet (literally). It just sounded too daunting. I didn't really have enough time to do it, because I kept doing other projects, thereby procrastinating. And I just plain wasn't fe... Read more
I survived Boot Camp!
Sunday, February 01, 2009      1 comments

I got to the end of the New You Boot Camp! All in all it was not that hard. But I was slightly reluctant to commit to daily activities in the beginning. And rightly so, I think. This is probably a good exercise for those who don't Reg... Read more

So here I am at Day 18 - coach says to blog about my experience. All in all, it is pretty good. The daily workouts are manageable, considering the shape I was in to start with. I like the variety of exercises. Finally, another use for my st... Read more
New You Boot Camp Day 1
Sunday, January 04, 2009      0 comments

So this is me on Day one... I am not expecting significant changes in this month, but I am hoping to shake up my routine a little to keep my body guessing a bit. And if I find some other exercises along the way that I want to incorporate into... Read more
Year End Wrap-Up...
Thursday, January 01, 2009      0 comments

2008 is over. How did I do? I set out to lose 60 lbs. I lost 58. I had several major life-events this year, so that meant several inappropriate binges. So all in all, 2 lbs shy of my goal ain't all bad! OK - so on my official wei... Read more
2009 goals?
Saturday, December 06, 2008      0 comments

Hmmm... what to do, what to do? I like the sound of 900 miles in 2009. But that is just 75 per month. Perfectly doable in my current condition, barring any unforeseen incidents. But that does not account for building on where I am no... Read more
So close, now...!
Wednesday, December 03, 2008      0 comments

Weighed in this morning and realized I am just over 5 pounds from my goal! While I had hoped to reach it by the end of the year, I had pretty much abandoned that hope. I thought that if I could just get through to the new year without putti... Read more
My 'Running Weight'!
Monday, November 24, 2008      1 comments

For years, I told myself when I get down to 170lbs I would start running again. Earlier this year, I owned up to the fact that I wouldn't get there WITHOUT running - so I got started on the C25K program, and am now running regularly every o... Read more

Gettin' Busy!!!
Saturday, November 01, 2008      0 comments

So this is it... Last week I commented on how I can't seem to eat enough. That my body just wants to stock up. This morning I did my regular weights and measures like I always do on the first of the month. Yes, it was disappointing. Of... Read more
Is it just the time of year?
Saturday, October 25, 2008      0 comments

I have really been struggling with eating the proper things, and the proper amount of calories in the last week. It started with the Ren-Fair last weekend, and has spun out of control ever since. Now, I haven't exactly been feeling myself ... Read more
I stink at this!

I really have to get better about this whole blogging/journaling thing. I am long overdue.... So, I am just shy of 50 lbs shed, just over 10 lbs from my goal.... and I gotta say that I never would have believed it possible, nor would I hav... Read more
