So Much for Snow
Wednesday, October 28, 2020      2 comments

That foot of snow we got Monday? Yeah. It's almost completely gone. Welcome to New Mexico. Back to work after a snow day and everything that didn't get done yesterday had to be brought back up to speed. No breaks at work today from all that... Read more
Scale Success and the Storm that Stole Autumn
Monday, October 26, 2020      1 comments

I stepped in the scale today and was delighted to see the number: 230! I haven't seen that since the middle of last year and now easily fit into my work dresses. Even better is that I can wear my Warm Dresses. Which leads me to: It was r... Read more
Camping--a Time of Not Munching
Thursday, October 22, 2020      1 comments

[Yes it's that time again for a weekend of camping. This week's temperatures: 70 high, 45 low. Next week: high 50, 31 low. Somehow I don't think I want to camp in the cold, even if the dog sleeps with me instead of his kennel. (I'm allergic, so ... Read more

After falling in love with last weekend's (car) camping trip I am planning to go out on every weekend I can until the weather gets too cold. It's still... Read more
Happy Birthday to Me
Saturday, October 10, 2020      4 comments

Just got back from a trip to real forest for a few days. Wishing I had stayed another day, but I didn't really have enough food for or otherwise I would have. It was warm during the day, 80s, and cool at night, 50. I used an old tent of my ... Read more
A Weekend and a Plan...sort of
Wednesday, October 07, 2020      1 comments

So now what? I've got five days, a full fridge, and tank of gas. Where will I go? Failing that, what will I do? Camping is a thought, though lots of people are having that thought right now too. 40s at night, but 80s during the day. Not too bad ... Read more
Hamster Wheel!
Saturday, October 03, 2020      0 comments

Somehow I think that I'm hamster wheeling because I am nervous how I will feel as a healthier me. It has been a long time since I was at a healthy weight/fitness level. Been just under a year since I was where I'm at now. Below 180? 2015. 140? ... Read more
Ask and Ye Shall Receive

I got on the scale this morning expecting to be sad and mopey at what I say. Lo and behold, after a day more to get my sodium levels in line and get myself back on par with eating: 336.0! It is what I was before the last week and some of gaining... Read more

I have spent the last week eating only sort of on plan. As such, my weight loss of about 1.5-2 pounds stopped all the way. I even gained a bit! At least I decided to not let that define what I am doing as an all-or-nothing deal. I was swearing u... Read more
Step backwards

Yesterday I allowed myself a day to eat as I chose. Eat I did. Now I am faced with a problem: my body wants to keep eating like yesterday and that is n... Read more
Twenty! 20!
Tuesday, September 15, 2020      2 comments

I was so happy to step up on the scale today and find that I had lost another pound. I even weighed myself twice to make sure. Twenty pounds lighter than when I started in July! I. Am. Thrilled! It was a nice start of a hard day, but it kept m... Read more
Time for a Picture Update
Sunday, September 06, 2020      1 comments

It has been long enough that I think there is a little bit of definition in the photos of before and after 17 pounds. It took me a bit of looking at the old and the new, but I am proud of me. (Mind you, that has taken me a long time to be a... Read more
Goodbye 240s, hello 230s!
Saturday, September 05, 2020      3 comments

I am proud to say that I am officially in the 230s without fudging the scale in any way! I had a stagnation for a little bit (very little, but hey, I'm inpatient) and am so happy to have a little progress on the scale. I had jumped the gun ... Read more
Damnable Scale
Saturday, August 29, 2020      1 comments

I donated platelets yesterday in a monster amount like I do every 2 to 3 weeks. Then tried to pass out again. ARG! I wish I knew what caused that, but as long as it is not a disqualifier from donation I am fine with the occasional interruption. ... Read more
