    11/12/2019 11:23:07 PM, by HULDEVON

    I think it’s funny weighing in every day. I sure see the fluctuation. Up two pounds. Usually I have a little idea as to why when it goes up, but not this time. I think I’ll look at my history and see if this is normal for my overall weight logs. I’ve been picturing the scale reading 164, not 167. M... Read more

    11/12/2019 11:22:58 AM, by SCOTIANRUNNER

    The reality is, I weigh more now than when I was pregnant. This would be fine *if* I was in really great shape and the added weight was muscle. It is not. I do know, however, that I do have a force working against me. It's called perimenopause. I'm not giving up without a fight. I've scheduled all... Read more

    176.6 lbs today. I lowered my insulin again today because my blood sugar was in the 50's yesterday WITHOUT warning signs. So I need to get that adjusted. I am weaning myself off of that! I guess I had to make that click in my mind that I am not just lowering it, I am weaning myself off. And I a... Read more

    10/30/2019 11:14:05 AM, by TIKITAMI

    Last night my daughter dropped off her twins for the night but before she left we headed down to the river for a run. The sun was setting, the eagles are starting to gather on the trees, it was a great (albeit cold) evening for a run. Back at the house two little girls waited for me,... Read more

  • Building New Habits / Reclaiming Old Habits

    10/29/2019 8:22:58 AM, by EBRAINK

    I've been thinking a lot about all the work I did years ago to build healthy new habits, to be more intentional about what and when I ate and drank and moved. I had different motivators then, and had no injuries to interrupt what I did, or how much of it I could do. It was different. But not s... Read more

  • Rebooting (over and over and over again)

    10/28/2019 9:16:28 AM, by EBRAINK

    So I've been here before. Restarting again, because I stopped. It's hard to keep this up, when I'm so busy in every other dimension of my life. Tracking every bit of food takes time, and "being mindful" takes brainspace/mental energy I don't often have to spare. But inattention has been costly... Read more
