Headaches
Saturday, April 23, 2016      3 comments

I've had headaches all week. I don't know if it's withdrawal from sugar, because I haven't eaten a lot of it or binged on carbs in the afternoon, but I'll stick with that explanation. I've been drinking 100 oz water a day, so it doesn't seem rea... Read more
Negative Self Talk
Wednesday, April 20, 2016      7 comments

I know I'm disgusted with myself, but I am still shocked at how prevalent and POWERFUL my negativity is. I've taken a 3 mile walk/jog at lunchtime yesterday and the day before, and for the entire 3 miles, I've worried about my ass jiggling, what... Read more
Here I am again...
Monday, April 18, 2016      1 comments

4/18/16 - Amazing that, rereading my few blog entries, the recurring theme is that I'm at an all time low. I guess that's what bring me back. And if I thought I was low then, then I'm really low now. I weigh 210 pounds. Full term pregnant I... Read more
Is another Setback just another Excuse?
Thursday, February 16, 2012      2 comments

I wasn't very positive this morning going into my weekly Thursday morning weigh-in. I knew the numbers wouldn't be good. It has been a rough week, and despite a few good days and good results last week, I had fallen off the wagon again as of M... Read more
Is Teaching Yoga Right for Me?
Sunday, September 26, 2010      1 comments

Friday afternoon I made a phone call inquiring about yoga teacher training, and found myself Saturday morning in a weekend intensive course. Things had just lined up too well to deny the opportunity to happen. 10 of the 12 girls there are... Read more
Four in a Row!
Thursday, September 23, 2010      2 comments

Boy am I hungry tonight, but it's really motivating to have 4 good days under my belt! It's a small streak, but they all start out that way, and I haven't had 4 good days in a row in months. While my weigh-in this morning wasn't as dramatic... Read more
I've actually reached Day 2!
Tuesday, September 21, 2010      0 comments

It has been months since I've stayed in my calorie range, and I did it yesterday! It feels great! Today is planned out as well, but I've got hours of good decisions to go. Thanks to my Spark Buddy through the 30 Something Moms Challeng... Read more
Where IS the wagon?
Sunday, September 19, 2010      3 comments

I've fallen off the wagon again and can't even see it! And then I realize that it's Sunday. And that weekends are AWFUL for me. I lose the structure of the workweek and I'm surrounded by food. It's not even junk food - it's just FOOD. I... Read more
Early to Rise, Early to Bed
Tuesday, September 14, 2010      1 comments

It was an early, EARLY morning exercising. It was comical really - I'd gotten up and pressed play on the DVD player to load the DVD, then gotten my shoes and gone outside to wipe the grass off. When I came in, one of the kids' CDs was BLARING ... Read more
Bad Day at Work Makes for Bad Day in Kitchen
Monday, September 13, 2010      0 comments

Work was really frustrating today. I came home and found a delightful 45 minutes to MYSELF while my exhausted preschooler napped late. And how did I spend it? Working on pictures on the computer, which was great, and stuffing my face. ... Read more
I did my First Triathlon!
Sunday, September 12, 2010      3 comments

I am now a triathlete! I did my first sprint distance triathlon today, in 63 degree rainy weather. The rain was absolutely chilling, so that by the time we were ready to go I was shaking with chattering teeth. The water temp was 69 so ... Read more
Pre-Race Jitters
Saturday, September 11, 2010      0 comments

I have my first triathlon tomorrow morning! I'm getting ready to head to my pre-race registration and meeting, and definitely am a little anxious about tomorrow's events. Doesn't help that I'm still so frustrated over the morning. I too... Read more
Back at It
Friday, September 10, 2010      0 comments

I'm still in this continuing battle. I reread my goals yesterday after signing up for the latest team challenge, and I still have the same goals, 1 and 2 and 3 years later. At least I'm consistent, but sheesh! Enough already! I know that... Read more
No Changes
Tuesday, March 25, 2008      0 comments

I joined 2 longer-term challenges (12 weeks) at the beginning of the year. I stepped on the scale this morning and have made absolutely no change since the beginning of the challenge. Why? Because I've made absolutely no changes. I haven... Read more
Taking Risks
Friday, March 21, 2008      0 comments

I am really bad at taking risks. Even my worst time of day is the 3 hours in the afternoon that has no structure or routine to it. I am a planner. I love routine. And unfortunately I'm looking for a new job and a change of pace. During an ... Read more
