OH NO! I'm over my calories!
Friday, January 04, 2013      2 comments

Into day 3 of the reboot. And, yeah, I expect to go over my calorie count again today. Oh well. C'est la vie. I've done this enough (starting from near scratch) to know a few things now. And the first thing is this: I will probably go ... Read more
The mid-week fumble
Saturday, October 13, 2012      1 comments

Every Sunday or Monday, I renew my resolve to get back in gear and lose weight. I do ok. And then somewhere around Wednesday (give or take a day), it all comes to a complete halt. It could be almost anything. I really love the dinner and wa... Read more
Keeping busy to keep up exercise: Step Counts
Monday, September 03, 2012      2 comments

One of the nice things about where I work is that they are associated with Virgin's Health program. You get $$$ for exercising and doing health stuff. And a main part of this is using their pedometer and uploading steps to their portal. Ear... Read more
Chocolate... Give Me Chocolate!

Sitting here with a pint of Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Therapy. Oh ... don't worry. It's SO chocolate that I don't make much of a dent. Super decadent chocolate is the best kind, because I can't ever eat as much as is served. So, back for "bac... Read more

Well, I fell off the wagon pretty hard. I'll weigh in tomorrow AM, but I'm pretty sure I'm back to where I started in January, and then some (nice, given that the wedding I wanted to lose weight for is in less than 2 weeks). The whole job c... Read more

Last one! Finally. This blogging every day ... it just doesn't work for me. So, yesterday was one of those bad days. It was ok until the migraine hit right after lunch. I went home and lay down for awhile and felt ok, but decided that I'm n... Read more

Ugh. Apologies to Tretra for being so late on this. It's just been one of those days where I don't want to actually do anything. Anyway: Yesterday was my daughter's 6th birthday. Also, had a good day at work. (Which is the entire oppo... Read more

Oh no! SparkPeople was down! What a horrible feeling that was. Anyway, that was yesterday. Hopefully it's all in the past. Work gets better every day, and Wednesday was no exception. Definitely feeling more and more comfortable. Plus, I'm p... Read more

Made it on to blog about yesterday. Finally. Just trying to keep it up. (Challenge members, please see my post in the Let's Sparkle Together forum about today's blogs and responses). Wow. I kind of don't remember yesterday! 2nd day of work,... Read more

First day on the new job. It's different. This is neither bad nor good. Just different. There are things I think I'm going to like. There are things I probably won't. Right now, I hate how useless I feel. I'm so used to being so productive... Read more

Crazy busy spring day. Did the grocery shopping in the AM. Skipped the gym, but spent two hours pulling weeds and mucking about in the garden (and I can feel it in my glutes and arms this AM). I cannot believe how warm it is. WHAT DID I DO ... Read more

Crazy St. Paddy's day! Found a flower girl dress for my daughter. Hooray! Hopefully they'll make this one (we ordered one a few weeks back and the company called the bridal shop and said it was discontinued). I think we like this one even b... Read more

Wow. It's all over. But it was a really great day. My boss put together my "surprise" party for 12:30. It was a nice turnout (especially on a "work at home" Friday). There was cake, of course. After work hours, it was Kong time. For y... Read more

Finished cleaning my desk out. Just a few things remain to take care of on Friday. Favorite moment of the day was at lunch. A few co-workers took me out for lunch and the following conversation ensued: Bill: So, is this lunch in additi... Read more

Well, the decisions are behind me, and I'm moving on. So now to get through my last few days at my company. Definitely an emotional time. Undoubtedly contributing to my sleep issues. Plus, the ReFi wasn't as done as we'd thought. Long story... Read more
