The Mighty Zeus... or... Geeez I Love My Dog!
Tuesday, May 05, 2015      2 comments

This is my boy Zeus. I fostered him for two weeks last year at the end of July, and ended up adopting him. They told me he was three years old, but I think they over estimated his age by a year. He's a pure bred Great Dane, but he's actually ... Read more

I managed to get in all 8 cups of water yesterday, I got in my 6k+ steps, and I ate within the limits for the day. Good for me. Day one of my renewed commitment was a success. I wake up at 5:10 every morning, but most days, I end up... Read more

Well, my last blog (on April 6) was about my boomerang pounds, and here I am, carrying around the very things that I have been trying to banish for good. The past month has been a yo-yo of emotions and pretty much non-stop eating. I h... Read more

I'm down 2 lbs this week. Happy about that! That brings me to 245.5 lbs. Only six more boomerang pounds to drop. When I'm below 239, I'll be working on old, settled-in pounds that I haven't touched in a long, long, long time. They... Read more

I’m going to be baking again this evening after work – cake and cookies. My boss is leaving on April 10, and we’re having his going away party tomorrow, as he will be bogged down with last minute work in the days leading up to his departure. ... Read more

Yesterday was a lazy day for me. I offered to help a friend, who is moving in three weeks, and he brought me a bin full of dvds, cds and games and asked me if I could sort through them all and match them with their boxes. It took about three h... Read more

I woke up this morning, peeked out the window and saw snow. YUCK! After packing up the cake I made and sending my friend on his way, I did some tidying up in my kitchen. I had two good sized pieces of cake left. I put the two large piece... Read more

Wow, I can’t believe I haven’t blogged since last Monday. I did manage to post to various teams, but never got around to blogging. It was a busy week at the office. In terms of my progress, I did manage to get in a lot of walking al... Read more

I guess I managed to focus this weekend! I spent the weekend cleaning my house. I moved into the place in September. Since then, it’s been one thing after another, so the place has never really looked finished, or tidy. There has alw... Read more

Didn’t blog yesterday. Didn’t feel like doing much yesterday – I almost skipped sparking yesterday too. I resisted the urge to bail out on myself. I had to remind myself a few times before I actually did it. I got around to getting ... Read more
