Well, I'm not going to Brooklyn, but I haven't slept more than 5 hours a night, since Saturday. It's starting to take a toll. I'm going to do what I can to get to bed by 9 pm tonight and sleep till 6 am tomorrow. A few nights of that, and ... Read more
Missing my kid
Tuesday, October 27, 2020      6 comments

The days are long but the years are short. This feels more and more true the older my kiddo gets. For the longest time, it was just the two of us. She's 17 and is house sitting and away for two nights, and it was like a sneak peek into ho... Read more

I have always loved food, and I'm getting better and better at recognizing portions and getting a good feel for what's appropriate and how to measure. We went on an outdoor picnic with my brother and SIL yesterday, and they brought take out. I... Read more

Saturday, October 24, 2020      11 comments

So I am on month 4 of tracking and exercising and having some concentrated intentionality around weight loss. I am listening to my weightloss hypnotherapy daily, found a form of exercise that I love (biking), and have reformed my diet conside... Read more

Today is packed full. Woke up, did my 12-minute pilates ab video. My abs are sore from yesterday, this is definitely in the rotation now. 2 loads of laundry while making breakfast & cleaning the kitchen and answering work email and ... Read more

Well, I'm losing the pounds I regained, which is less fun, but at least the right direction. I tried a pilates video yesterday that was WAY too advanced but motivating. Then this morning in my email there was a 10 minute SP video for pilates f... Read more
An October Goal Met

Well, I did it. I rode 40 miles yesterday. It was beautiful, and not as hard as I expected it to be. I think that once I'm out there and I find a rhythm, it goes by so quickly and peacefully. I'm sore today, for sure, and am trying a new onl... Read more

I let yesterday turn from a rest day into a slippery slope day. I was great until I got too hungry. My husband and I went grocery shopping, and then out to dinner cause I was starving. I then proceeded to make hormonally craving based decisi... Read more
Rest day
Monday, October 19, 2020      8 comments

Today is a mostly rest day, meaning I'll go for a 90 minute or so walk at some point. I am not a fast walker. I have a touch of the OCD. I set my apple watch to burn 1080 calories a day, and if my rings aren't closed by the end of the day, i... Read more
Bike riding
Monday, October 19, 2020      9 comments

I've ridden a total of 105 miles this week. Today my husband and I went down the bike trail towards downtown, and then rode through town on the way back. I really didn't like it. I'm spoiled from the bike trail. I don't have to watch for traff... Read more
Tough couple of days.
Saturday, October 17, 2020      13 comments

The last two days were hard. I went a bit off the rails with food. I tracked it all, didn't like what I saw but also didn't shame myself. Back on track for today. This week was just hard. We had to revisit the trust from my Aunt's passing, and i... Read more

Whoa. My car broke down yesterday, and we had to revisit my Aunt's Trust to finish up some last-minute tax things this week. It's been stressful. I budgeted some comfort food, lasagne, and more lasagne for dinner. An 18-mile bike ride today hel... Read more
The Method is not the Reason
Wednesday, October 14, 2020      14 comments

I wrote this in the blog yesterday, and then the phrase wouldn't go away. It's been rumbling around in my head ever since. I've spent years getting caught up in the method - Keto, Intermittent Fasting, the right exercise program, the Fitbit, th... Read more

I finally started losing again, after about 5 weeks of dancing around the same 5 lbs, losing and sort of regaining, and losing .5lb or 1 lb and then gaining. I've lost 6 lbs in the last week and a half, and I can feel the momentum again. So, I... Read more
Return to the real world
Monday, October 12, 2020      10 comments

Omph. I had an incredible weekend. The friend I went to see, we've been friends since college. Our lives have taken very different tracks and we still connect and relate like we are 20 years old again, and time just disappears. My daughter ... Read more
