Hang on, there was another rock bottom under that rock bottom?

I once posted that I'm just a ding dong away from tumbling back to old habits and man oh man, was I right. For the last two weeks I've been kinda, sorta, once in awhile, not really, tracking my food. I would be doing the same for my exe... Read more
Hitting the wall, it was going to happen
Tuesday, February 08, 2011      5 comments

For several weeks, ok, since summer, I've bounced back and forth between the same 5 pounds. It was a long drawn out plateau but I stuck to what I knew I had to so. Then December hit. I avoided the the normal holiday traps and got off the plat... Read more

I need to back this up a month to give a clear picture. Last month I came down to Oregon on a business trip. When I left home I was fine, nothing out of the ordinary. When I got down to the worksite I spent 2 hours at work and the ne... Read more
Yes, I run so I can run more

This morning I invited my husband to go on a run with me tonight. Since the cold weather has settled in he hasn't been interested in venturing out so I've been running on my own. This morning he gave me the deer caught in the headlights look ... Read more
No stomach jiggle
Thursday, January 20, 2011      5 comments

Yesterday I was noticing that my pants were longer but last night when I was out for a run something really got me excited. When I was running there was no floppy stomach jiggling with each step. Now don't get me wrong, there is still p... Read more
My pants are longer

The scale has settled back to 258, it seems to like it there. I'm starting to think the other numbers are broken but as I was walking around yesterday I couldn't help but notice I kept stepping on the bottom of my jeans. First thought, I've neve... Read more
Ready to get back on the road
Tuesday, January 18, 2011      5 comments

I've been home for a month and it's time to get back on the road. I notice a big change this time, the panic of what will I eat, how will I handle eating out is gone. I'm no longer worried with being faced with having to eat out each day, I k... Read more
There are no mistakes, only lack of knowledge
Wednesday, January 12, 2011      7 comments

I was reminded of this yesterday, it's my boss' favourite saying. Whenever I think I've made a terrible mistake at work he pulls it out and lets me know, I didn't make this mistake, I learned something. Of course if I kept making the same mistak... Read more
Bottomless pit, is it contagious?
Tuesday, January 11, 2011      8 comments

Yesterday i was a bottomless pit. It wasn't a case of wanting to snack, I was hungry. I tried the old standards. Drink some water to curb the hunger. 4 litres of water later and a stomach that was going slog slog I had to admit that I wasn'... Read more
The ground is all mouldy
Sunday, January 09, 2011      3 comments

I wanted to go for an early morning run today but when I look outside there's something amiss. The ground is all covered with white stuff, must have gone mouldy last night from all the moisture in the air. There also seems to be ice all over ... Read more
I can put my socks on!
Friday, January 07, 2011      15 comments

A year ago putting on socks was embarrassing. In order to put on socks you have to be able to reach your feet, if my feet were on the ground there was no reaching them. I would have to cross my legs, but even that was challenging since lif... Read more
I except that my body does this, but I don't get it
Thursday, January 06, 2011      7 comments

December was not a good month for exercise. I took that into consideration and kept calories in check. Doing this I lost over the holidays and was happy to finally get below the 255 mark. Then this week happened. I know this happens, I ... Read more
The amazing thing about excuses
Wednesday, January 05, 2011      8 comments

The amazing thing about excuses is they never run out. You could spin the excuse wheel each day and be able to come up with a darn good reason why you couldn't possibly work out or stay on track today. Work, I travel all the time.... Read more
What a great workout!
Tuesday, January 04, 2011      6 comments

Last night it was cold and windy, combined with my whininess I was easily talked out of going for a run. My compromise was that I would do a 45 min workout using our Kinnect. What an amazing workout that was! This morning when I got up I coul... Read more
Wow, that was all in one year
Friday, December 31, 2010      5 comments

What an amazing year this was. I became a grandma for the first time, earned 2 promotions, travelled the world to places I could only have dreamed of going before, was asked out by a guy 25 years my junior (Yup, still bragging about that... Read more
