Turn and Face the Strange Changes
Thursday, September 20, 2012      1 comments

It's a bit of a struggle to stay positive today, but I won't give in to dwelling on the things that are bringing me down. It behoves me to put a positive spin on things and look at the bright side -- for MYSELF, not just here in this blog for ot... Read more
Finally, Something to Celebrate!
Wednesday, September 19, 2012      1 comments

After over a week of very little change (including a 5-day streak of being the EXACT same weight), my start page on SparkPeople now reads *** 22 pounds lost!!! *** Yay! Less than a half-pound to go and I will finally be in the 170s.... Read more
Life is a Beach

Today is Tuesday, so it was my workout day with the personal trainer (PT). We worked on legs again today, which is my specialty, haha. I kept upping the weights on the machines, since I have worked hard to progress on my own other than just the ... Read more
Just Another Manic Monday

So my weight was sort of down today. At least it wasn't the exact same as the past few days. (Also, yesterday it was up, but still the same major number, 181.) Today it was 181. Even. One-eighty-one point zero. I just want the downward tren... Read more
Weight, and Working with Weights
Saturday, September 15, 2012      0 comments

I have been the exact same weight now for 5 days in a row. The weird thing is, no fluctuations, even by a tenth of a pound here and there. Nope. It's the EXACT same weight: 181.2. At the beginning of the week I thought, foolishly, that... Read more
Listening to Nature
Friday, September 14, 2012      0 comments

A gentle rain is falling outside, and I am listening to it as I sit beside the open window typing on my computer. We don't normally open the windows, preferring to keep the house cool and dehumidified with the technological marvel that is o... Read more
Here on the Cusp
Thursday, September 13, 2012      0 comments

I am currently balancing on the cusp between plus sizes and regular sizes. I picked up a few items of clothing at Wal-Mart today. I was able to explore the whole women's clothing section, not just limit myself to the corner reserved for plu... Read more
Twice in One Day
Wednesday, September 12, 2012      0 comments

Went to the gym twice yesterday. Once for my morning session with the personal trainer (PT) to work on weights, and once in the evening with DH to do cardio while he worked with PT. DH and I have the same trainer on the same day; we just g... Read more
Shout It

It's a tough day today for many people in the U.S., and in this family we have our own, more personal reason to remember the date. But I will just mark it, and move on. It's Tuesday, so I spent the morning with PT, working my arms using cir... Read more
Throw Me In the Shallow Water
Monday, September 10, 2012      1 comments

The clothing dilemma. It's a good problem to have, when you need smaller and smaller clothes instead of larger and larger, but a rapidly changing size makes the change of season a bit of a challenge!* I went through my fall and winter cloth... Read more
Eating Local
Sunday, September 09, 2012      1 comments

Went out to dinner last night with DH to celebrate our 23rd anniversary. We are both pretty good at eating out and remaining within our calorie allowance, but we booked an early reservation at one of our favourite upscale restaurants in ou... Read more
Life's the Same, Except for My Shoes

Well, short hair was much easier to deal with after my workout than the longer hair I used to have. I'm calling this the right decision. I still have issues with the way the back falls (new hairdresser not really experienced with my hair), but I... Read more
I Hope I Made the Right Decision

Well, I got my hair cut today. And I mean CUT. I went from a medium length hairstyle with hair just past my shoulders, to a short, angled bob. I have a bare neck at the back, something I haven't had for about 10 years now. (Hmm, I wonder how muc... Read more

Level 7 in SparkPoints and 20 pounds down today! Two milestones in one day! Woohoo! Other accomplishments today: - cleaned out under the kitchen sink (it was a big job) - spent over an hour doing heavy work in the front garden I... Read more
An Eclectic Mix
Wednesday, September 05, 2012      0 comments

I have so much to write about and it's all just crazy, unrelated stuff. Like one of my recent discoveries, a small victory if you will: I realized that with my chin on my chest, and sucking in my gut as hard as I can, I am actually able to... Read more
