I'm failing. Miserably. My exercise is at the "going through the motions" level and my eating sucks rocks. I'm constantly over my ranges for everything and my CICO is so very rarely negative that I'm wondering why I don't weigh even more than I... Read more

I meant to do this yesterday but I got sleepy. I literally fell asleep with my iPad in my hand. I woke up, barely, in time to get Roo from preschool. Yesterday's goals were similar to Tuesday's: I will hydrate properly. (99 ounces accord... Read more

Maintenance, where art thou?
Wednesday, April 13, 2016      1 comments

I lost enough to meet my goal and then maintained for YEARS before having Roo four years ago. After her, I returned to goal but it's been a struggle to maintain this time. I blame being in my 40s, a lack of strength training and genetics. ... Read more

I vowed on the 2nd to blog "often" and it lasted until Wednesday. Five days. I guess that's not too bad. I've got to get back at it though. Tonight, I'm ahead of the game. (3 minutes until my alarm goes off ... Read more

This morning my running friends and I do a very chilly 10 mile run. I loved it. Granted, I think I came pretty close to actually freezing my butt off but, otherwise, I was in good company and the weather was near-perfect. The wind was just an in... Read more

I've made it a goal to blog often this year. I've even set an alarm in my phone. The trouble is, I don't often have anything to say that I deem interesting. Today, though, I had a few questions asked of me and I thought I could kill two birds wi... Read more
