Climbing out of my hole....
Friday, June 18, 2010      6 comments

It's official.....I was in a hole for two weeks. I think a combination of things got it started. I know better, but I got aggravated by my mom's "Mama Drama" and reacted by eating junk food and not exercising. A formula for depression. I s... Read more
Off Track
Thursday, June 17, 2010      6 comments

At the end of last month, I wrote a blog about how well I had been staying on track all month. Apparently, that was the kiss of death for me. Immediately after writing the blog, I stopped tracking food and stopped exercising (other than my pas... Read more

Last Sunday night, I discovered Amazon had the Garmin 305 for sale. I've been wanting one for a year, so I ordered on the spot. I got to use it this morning for the first time and absolutely loved it. It beeps at me to tell me the things I wa... Read more

CSA Volunteer/Mother's Day Lunch/Galloway Running
Tuesday, May 11, 2010      6 comments

I feel like I've just recovered from having my parents and my brothers over for Mother's day. There were six of us all together. I think that as simple as I try to make things, I'm constitutionally incapable of actually keeping it simple when ... Read more
