Well, I'm not sure how much I've been "on track' in the past emoticon Consistency is a problem with me, and th... Read more
Finally, the first day of school
Tuesday, September 03, 2013      5 comments

I'm so glad that the routine is going to start again. I don't think I hardly slept last night and am not feeling too good today, but hopefully I'll catch up tonight. I just saw my 3 kids off to school. They are in the same school this year: ... Read more

I reread my blog from last night and deleted it. thanks to those who responded. Bottom line is that I'm dealing with many past hurts - not easy. Anyhow, life goes on, and on... Everyone, have a great day!... Read more

I figure that my daughters - or least one of them - will be flying the coop someday. they were both at home, along with son, so we made plans. Our original plan was to go swimming at this new local pool at this end of town but that didn't work... Read more
This is why I torture my son for my own personal gain
Friday, August 23, 2013      6 comments

Don't worry, you can read this without having to call Child Protective Services! But, to hear my son, 11 yr old, you would think I was torturing him. Actually, he's used that word himself. He whines and complains almost everytime I take h... Read more
OMG, not a heart attack but an exercise style?!?

I did my workout at the gym today, and the most noticeable member was there... I first noticed this fellow a few weeks ago, for the first time, I'm sure. I was on the elliptical, sweating away as I watched TV and I heard loud groaning and moan... Read more
That's not a compliment!

Hubby and I were talking last night (although quarrelling is a better description) and I told him that I was mad that when I lost 30lbs a few years back he never complimented me. He believes that he did. I was looking for a "you look great" an... Read more
Who thought I would miss exercise???
Tuesday, August 20, 2013      4 comments

But I think I did. Sunday was a planned "day off". Yesterday was an unplanned "day off". Some unexpected interruptions occurred in the morning and early afternoon and by the late afternoon, it was not so convenient -- but the main reason by ... Read more
On a treadmill called Failure
Monday, August 19, 2013      6 comments

I have so many resolutions and plans in the morning. They aren't as strong in the afternoon, and almost non-existent by the evening. I've been doing evening drinking and snacking. I know that I will only gain weight by doing this, but it's su... Read more
Another good nights sleep
Sunday, August 18, 2013      2 comments

I'm still very aware that I'm returning to work on Tuesday. Kinda nervous but I really don't know why. Fear of failure? to be on time? to speak with others? to find out how much work is piled on my desk? I suspect that I have a lot of unde... Read more

I followed through with the exercise yesterday morning and went to lunch with hubby and kids. It was pleasant! awesome food and a nice conversation. After lunch the kids and I went to see Elysium- interesting movie! My daughter works in a mo... Read more
It just kinda happened
Friday, August 16, 2013      3 comments

and it's all my fault. I let my guard down again. I forget about the changes I'm trying to make and the old habits crop up. You see, over the last month or so, I had planned on taking two of my children to my favorite restaurant for their bu... Read more
I'm getting into a better mindset
Thursday, August 15, 2013      3 comments

Maybe 9 hours of sleep last night helped! It certainly didn't hurt. I ate over my calorie range yesterday, but not embarrassingly! I need to figure out what my BMR is... I don't think the SP range considers any activity. I know that consumi... Read more
Turning the page?
Wednesday, August 14, 2013      2 comments

Yesterday I managed to stay in the calorie range and that was good because I had an impromptu lunch at A&W with my son. Nothing healthy there! I did my 'real cardio' exercise for the day. Later, 'forced' my son to go for a bike ride with a c... Read more
