All of the Bulk and None of the Brawn
Friday, June 07, 2013      2 comments

I discovered today that I weigh more at a whopping 5-foot-7 than most of the NBA players a foot or more taller than me. I don't really know what else to say at the moment, except that it needs to change. I can NOT seem to get motivated. ... Read more
Still Soda Free
Wednesday, April 10, 2013      3 comments

This is the longest in my entire life that I have stayed away from drinking soda. I'm going on nearly 3 months soda-free. :) I actually wound up gaining weight because I switched to coffee with fatty/sugary cream. It was SOOO yummy, but ... Read more

I stopped drinking soda. I've been hesitant to post lately because this is one of those changes that could very easily be lost if I slip up. But I haven't in near... Read more

One of the best things about the WW Points Plus system is that most fruits and veggies are considered "freebies," meaning they have a zero points value. I love this because it helps me feel like I can always have something to eat, and it puts m... Read more

Today I walked. I went about a mile, which is approximately 1/3 what I was at pre-baby. Since this is the first time back out exercising, I want to follow my docto... Read more

OoU This video is amazing. I LOVE it. I have always loved running, and did well in track in jr. high and high school. I need to get back to what I love, and I'm trying. I walked 3.25 miles to... Read more
The No Plan Plan
Tuesday, July 26, 2011      1 comments

Haven't written in a while. Sorry about that. Time gets away from me sometimes. I also feel like I have to be able to share what I'm doing on my "program" that is moving me toward my goal, and most of the time, I don't have an answer for... Read more
First Weigh-In in 4 months.
Sunday, June 26, 2011      6 comments

I weighed myself today. I haven't weighed myself since I went to the doctor in February. I knew that I was making progress, and that's all I cared about. The idea of weighing myself and focusing on numbers really scared me because I didn'... Read more
New Exercise Regimen

I know I keep starting and restarting. Life has sucked, and that's the gist of it. I'm not one of those woe-is-me, doomsdayers, though. It is just the truth. Loss of job/income. Loss of family stability. Nearly lost my marriage. Child 2 i... Read more

The first day is always so daunting, isn't it? What if I can't stick to it, like so many times before? Its definitely unsettling to make big changes, but this is one I have been wanting to make for such a long time. If the past few mont... Read more
Another day closer.

No picture today. I was going to go on a walk with our horse-dog, Alice, but wound up getting in a big argument with my husband instead. Le-sigh. We'll hope that the hard stuff we're working through is tearing down the walls between us so we ... Read more
