Ever noticed on the bottom of your rear view mirror the disclaimer that says "objects may be closer than they appear?" My 160's are currently the object in my rearview mirror. On one hand I am SO happy to have them behind me. I have been in th... Read more

Gah, it's Wednesday...which can only mean two thing; 1-the week is 1/2 way over and 2. I have to weigh in tonight. The dreaded weigh in. I'm terrified of the scale. It is more than a measure of pounds and ounces...it is a testament of m... Read more

Sabotage: any undermining of a cause; Treacherous action to defeat or hinder a cause or an endeavor; deliberate subversion. I leave in two days to visit my family and friends in Michigan. There are so many potential things that could go wr... Read more

"I don't really like you right now" that's exactly what I was saying at 6:45 pm as I was dripping beads of sweat onto the floor. What I really wanted was to cuss a blue streak at my PT who at the time I was SURE was torturing me. I made it thr... Read more

I hate summer. I yearn for it all winter while I am bundled up in thick layers walking the dogs, my nose dripping, tissues piled in my pocket. I crave warm days and the hot sun. I picture myself lounging in the pool the cool water so refreshi... Read more

Joining the gym was the best thing I have ever done for myself. It took me a few years to break down and join a gym. I was terrified of working out in front of people and afraid of looking foolish. I now realize that the $90/month I spend on a... Read more

Competition is good for the gut!

Jason and I are still vying for the title. The competition between us has been a great motivator for losing the extra 25 or so lbs that I have dealt with for my entire adult life. I can already feel a difference in the way my pants are f... Read more
Blown out of proportion
Tuesday, July 29, 2008      1 comments
