Equilibrium
Tuesday, July 21, 2009      17 comments

I've been doing well the past 5 days - despite deciding to loosen up on my plan a bit. The exercise has taken a hit, but I walked all day yesterday at an amuzement park, so that should count for something LOL!! I have not splurged in anything ... Read more
Needing a break...

I'm doing what I call the maintaining dance. Up a pound, down two pounds, up two pounds, down one pound. And in the end it all equals out....which is great for maintaining...only since June, I've altered my plan to lose the 10 pounds I put on ... Read more
Lazy vs. Lazy-ish...
Saturday, July 11, 2009      14 comments

So, I posted my current status as "looking forward to a lazy-ish weekend". Notice...there's an "-ish". I'm not sure I know how to be totally lazy! I have 4 kids afterall! I spent my lazy day in my pj's until 1:30 - a rarity for me. How... Read more

Quick Check-in
Wednesday, July 01, 2009      8 comments

I'm back from a much needed vacation w/ hubby. Good times - even w/ sucky weather! After 4 days of less than stellar eating, I'm up 2.8 pounds. Not too bad considering I've had homemade ice cream, lots of sodium, and sat in a car for over... Read more
How many carbs in dirt?
Saturday, June 27, 2009      15 comments

So today was my 2nd 5K. It's in my hometown, which I think helped, as I was familiar with the route and set little mini goals along the way (make it past the lawyers' house, the church, the ice rink...). There were only 25 people there!! All ... Read more
Needing a vacation!
Friday, June 26, 2009      6 comments

I was up a tad on the scale today, which leads me to guess I'll be sticking to my recently lowered carb plan for a few weeks. We leave on vacation Sunday and return Tuesday. Not a long time away, but I'll cherish every precious moment. LOVE L... Read more
Quiz

I'll start off w/ my plan for the week. I'm going to remain eating at the low end of my carb numbers for at least this week. After 3 weeks of keeping my carbs low, I've finally begun to see some scale movement. Hubby and I are going away for ... Read more

OK....here's a pic of my hair, although I'm not sure that you can really see the streaking of the highlights very well. Gosh....I have a lot of hair! The wall behind me is... Read more
Here I go...again!

I've been looking for another 5K - and one fell into my lap : ) I was wavering on registering as it's local and probably not very large AND...this is stupid...I didn't want to place LAST in my home town. Well...stop that racket!!! I asked a f... Read more
I'm Chunky...
Sunday, June 07, 2009      13 comments

I'm chunky...well, at least my hair is! I get my hair highlighted once a year - typically the day after the last day of school - as a reward for myself. Well...this year, I was too busy. So...I got my hair done today. I got it chunky highlig... Read more
Bird Crap and other ... stuff.
Friday, June 05, 2009      11 comments

So today was beautiful. Sunny. Warm, but not hot. I spend so much time doing laundry and stuff inside, but I HAD to get the kids out and enjoy that weather today. I got the bright idea to hand wash my car - something I haven't done in a VERY... Read more
Bootcamp - it's time
Saturday, May 30, 2009      11 comments

So I've had excuse after excuse not to get serious about getting back down to goal. I've seemed pretty content bouncing around the +10 (or more) over goal range since last fall. In reality, I've not liked the extra 10 pounds, but in the winter... Read more

Saturday, May 23, 2009      15 comments

Well, I did it. Not only did I survive my first 5K, but I ran my best time ever!! It was a beautiful day - sunny and mid 50's at race time. There were 250+ participants, with 45 of us running the 5K. I've not run in a group before - I li... Read more
