Yep, I kn ow it's January 2. Resolutions should have started yesterday. And you know what? I had every good intention to starting yesterday. But you know what else? The road to hell is paved with good intentions. I wasn't in the right fram... Read more
Why I started and why I won't give up.
Monday, October 03, 2016      11 comments

I start over, a lot. I tend to be a perfectionist. So, if I mess up, I usually just give up. I'm almost 100 lbs too heavy. I feel awful. I'm a horrible role model for my children. I have health issues. This is why I started. I have to fix those ... Read more

So, here we go again. ANOTHER day 1. I'm so tired of day ones. They make me feel so bad. Of course I feel like a failure, and I am. I wouldn't have to have yet another day one if I didn't fail the last time. Last year at this time I weighe... Read more
2015--Day 4 (They need to make boots for bigger calves!!)
Sunday, January 04, 2015      1 comments

First off, my rant. I needed some new boots to wear to work. The only other ones I have have this velvet type stuff on the sole, more for looks than functionality, you know? We live in the woods, so on top of snow, we get a lot of rain and mu... Read more
2015--Day 2
Friday, January 02, 2015      1 comments

So, day 2 is pretty unremarkable. I think I'm getting sick, so I have zero energy to do anything. I have made breakfast for my family (a rare occasion when we are all together in the morning, what with my husband's wacky work schedule.) It wa... Read more

Here we are again. A new year, a new resolution. I start over so many times. So, in the new year, I'm going to break up my goals into small steps. I'm going to try to focus on 10% weight loss at a time. For the first leg of my journey, that'... Read more

So, you know how I was so gung ho about being on Day 1 again! Yeah...that lasted all of that blog post before life handed my butt back to me and told me to go sit down. I was super embarrassed by that...being so hopeful then just letting that ... Read more
Day 1...Again.
Monday, July 28, 2014      2 comments

So, here I am again, at Day 1. How many times have I started over? More times than I can count. What makes this time different? Well...I can't say. It might not be different. I have to HOPE it is though. I have to WORK to make sure it is.... Read more

I had to put my miniature dachshund down last Wednesday. She was 8 and a half. For such a little dog, she had such a great personality. When she was a puppy, she chewed on everything. We had to replace linoleum in our bathroom. She could de... Read more
Late Night Realizations...
Monday, June 18, 2012      5 comments

Last night was a baaaaaad night. It sort of stemmed off from a little disagreement between my husband and myself. I don't want to go into too much detail, but it just seemed that everything came crashing down on me. Not just the disagreement... Read more

In the spirit of the "Freggie Dare," here is one of the more interesting veggie recipes I've tried. It's from Good Eats by Alton Brown (LOVE THAT SHOW!) My husband didn't care for the recipe, but I thought it was refreshing, and would make for... Read more

Walk into the gym...I see the herd of middle aged muscle men is prowling their usual territory. They all look the same: bald (or shaved) head, beefed up muscles out of proportion to their body, and a goatee...OH, and the weird "Rex Kwon Do" pa... Read more

So, yeah, pitty party-RSVP 2:09 AM Christmas Eve 2011. Still the same negative me...only more so. I was doing so great...I had lost 10 pounds, was working out. Then, just stopped. No good reason, just didn't feel like trying anymore. I'm pat... Read more
Negativity Sucks!!

Hi, my name is Stephanie, and I'm a negative person. I don't know how it happened. I've got more than enough material things, a home, a car, a job, three puppies who love a good scritch (yes, scritch) behind the ears, a very loving husband, an... Read more
