Wanna help me make some major life decisions?

I should thank all of you for your good job mojo from last blog because finally (FINALLY!) there are some prospects coming through for me. I interviewed at a seedy motel near my house and wanted to run screaming from the interview, but sti... Read more

Thanks for the support on my last blog! I am so glad it resonated with people. I have been making mostly awesome choices. I'm pretty far toward my weekly fitness minutes goal, thanks to tonight's treadmill session and trying to shoot for 1... Read more
Making Success
Monday, January 13, 2014      9 comments

We talk about finding success like it's a mysterious treasure, when the (sobering or inspiring?) fact is that it's all in our heads. We decide whether we do well. We decide whether we make health a priority over instant gratification. We MAKE ou... Read more
I've fallen but I AM getting up!
Saturday, January 11, 2014      11 comments

Oof, rocky start to January. The lake house party did not go as anticipated. I actually did not eat too much, but I drank too much not-low-enough-calorie beer, and over that week (epic hangover; note the "did not eat too much"... or enough...... Read more
Late-December happy and January goals
Monday, December 30, 2013      9 comments

Perhaps I posted my last blog prematurely... while it has not been a good exercise or eating month overall (not really working out; not tracking), apparently the combination of having internalized healthy eating somewhat and continuing to walk, ... Read more

December goals
Monday, December 02, 2013      14 comments

It's December already?! Goodness. Last week was a bit of a wash. I stayed in range some days (including Thanksgiving which was oddly one of my better days, I guess because of only two meals), but mostly veered off track with eating and wit... Read more
The rest of this journey, and an interesting perspective
Friday, November 29, 2013      12 comments

If we are mutual friends, you've probably seen me raving a bit in my statuses this past week about how close I am to some of my original goals: one pound from my New Year goal right now, 1.2 pounds away from being a "normal" BMI (whatever that m... Read more
I'm not excited for the holidays
Tuesday, November 26, 2013      14 comments

I am seeing all of these statuses about how excited everyone is for Thanksgiving. I'm happy that I'm cooking (mostly happy, that is) and can choose what to make and how healthy it is. Happy that I'll be with my son, who will head off to co... Read more

(To me, weeks go Monday-Sunday -- it is the weekEND, no? But since Spark starts weeks on Sundays, I will also). Just some stats at the end of this week! I felt like I did pretty well, although there were a couple of low-activity days and a ... Read more

The bittersweet side of weight loss

Oh, dear, folks. I took my gorgeous silk velvet black Ralph Lauren strapless dress out of storage to make sure it fits for a Vermont winter wedding in three weeks and... it does not. It will fall off of me the second I attempt a shimmy. Which me... Read more
Anticlimactic scale victory
Friday, November 15, 2013      10 comments

I am not sure why this doesn't feel like a big deal. Maybe it's because I feel like I waited so long for it (I do believe in August I was sure I could get down to the 130s "soon" and here we are in November!) Maybe it's because the scale only ju... Read more
