That was my reaction to hearing my boss and a co-worker from the IS department declare they had signed me up for a 5k April 21st. Of course, they were kidding, but I didn't know that at the time. Truthfully, the co-worker had come to ask me to s... Read more

…and do they actually expect the runner/walker on the sidewalk to understand what they’re screaming while driving 45 mph on the other side of a 4 lane road that also has a huge median? Not to mention that the runner/walker is usually listening ... Read more

Normally, I stay pretty positive about my weight loss and how far I've come. After my weekly weigh in this morning, I was happy to see I was down another two pounds. That's a total of 81 pounds. From 266 to 185 in 14 months isn't bad, right? ... Read more
I'm not on a diet"
Saturday, February 26, 2011      5 comments

You should see the looks I get when I use those words to answer the question "what diet are you on". No one believes me, of course. I try to explain that if I was on a diet where I had to count points or buy expensive pre-packaged foods, or ev... Read more
