Three fraking pounds?!
Tuesday, September 10, 2013      3 comments

I know it shouldn't make a difference. I should be pleased with my success. But THREE FRAKING POUNDS?! I'm still not breaking past that 200 barrier. It's been over a month now. I'm extremely disappointed in myself. I was losing at least fi... Read more

Still working on that elusive goal that won't budge, the 200 pound mark on that scale! I've been going back and forth flirting with that goal for a couple of months, literally. When I first seriously committed to this lifestyle change in Febru... Read more

Breaking 200.

I can't help but feel like I've been self sabotaging. I've been a hair away from that elusive 200 pound mark for close to two months now. Every time I get close, I go off the diet and gain back a pound or two and then stall out. At first it w... Read more
Treading water.

So I'm still treading water. I've only lost about ten pounds since my spinal surgery two months ago. It could be worse, I know. I've heard it all, "You've just had major surgery,", "You haven't gained any back,", "You aren't allowed to do any... Read more

I'm excited! My sister has a fitbit and is sticking to her Sparkpeople plan! Which is good because for the first time since I started losing weight I gained back a little. When she was visiting this last weekend I gained back a good five poun... Read more

I had surgery on my left knee this last week. Of course I've been rendered relatively sedentary, well even MORE sedentary, than I have been. And this upcoming week, I have to have MAJOR Cervical Spinal Level Four Fusion. The knee was not AS ... Read more

Every year I manage the Community Dance Stage for the Boulder Creek Festival. It attracts more than 10,000 people. It's crowded, it's hot and while I enjoy it, dealing with a lot of Diva Dancers, Dance Moms and Dads,... can be kind of stressfu... Read more
Finally! Success! But scary, too.

I'm finally seeing some success. I've been up and down the scale so much it's scary! I've started on SparkPeople at least 2-3 times already. But this time it seems to be working. The iPhone app has helped so much this time around. But I thi... Read more

So I've jokingly called my husband the "Enabler" in past blog posts. And trying to stick to a healthy diet is difficult to say the least. I mean, come on! If dieting were easy, I'd be skinny, already! The hubby went to the doctor for a check... Read more

I took a few days off. Went to Outback. Gained two pounds back. Erg. Okay, so I fell off the wagon. But all I can do is start over again. At least this time its only after a couple of days and not after months. Or a year. I've updated my... Read more

I'm addicted to CrackBook. That's what my Hubby calls FaceBook. While I'm not on it ALL THE TIME like I was a year ago, I do usually check it daily and if I have a rare day off, I usually veg out on FB and catch up on TIVO. (I know, I should ... Read more

Okay I know this isn't necessarily the healthy way to watch what I'm eating, but tonight is New Years Eve, so I'm saving some calories for a party we're going to tonight. I slept in today, so skipped breakfast and for lunch I just had sliced de... Read more

So, I didn't do well. But I didn't go TOO far over. So tomorrow I'll just climb back up in that saddle. The thing that pushed me over was that we waited too long for lunch, so I took the kids through fast food drive in. I ate a huge "Macho B... Read more

I may actually blog twice today. It's eleven am and I've made it through one meal so far. We went out to Denny's for breakfast and I only had the bowl of Harvest Oatmeal. My husband, otherwise known as the "Saboteur", gave me a breakfast saus... Read more
