I was offered my new job on June 30th! Only caveat was that I had to accept that day and move there before July 30th. OK, we can do that. Start the whirl wind of an adventure! We decided that meant we had to drop everything and go up to NC 4th o... Read more
Priorities, jobs, DDPyoga
Wednesday, June 17, 2015      3 comments

If you've been wondering where I have been lately I have had to start prioritizing a lot more off electronics things. I had 2 interviews last week and my computer crashed. That leaves me with my phone and kindle to go online at home unless I ste... Read more

This morning we decided to move on to Below the Belt. Wow, this workout kicked my butt... literally. This workout, as it implies, is all lower body. Well none of his workouts are ALL that section of the body, but that was the focus. What I learn... Read more

I forgot to weigh and measure yesterday since we had started on a Wednesday. I am VERY happy with the results so far. Keep in mind last Wednesday I was still holding on to a bunch of water weight from a weekend of drinking, but here's the result... Read more
Day 3 & 4: DDPyoga
Wednesday, June 03, 2015      2 comments

Monday was day 3 and we did Fat burner. I enjoyed this workout. I'm starting to get the hang of DDP as an instructor. At times it's hard to keep up when you aren't used to the routine. That's normal though in a workout where you aren't watching ... Read more

This morning we woke up again for DDP yoga. Hubby forced me out of bed this morning. I haven't been sleeping well and I notice that the more I exercise regularly the less I sleep. I also had found out yesterday that I have 2 more interviews comi... Read more

Yesterday our DDPyoga came in the mail. Time to get this ball rolling! Hubby reset the alarm for 5:30am instead of 6am and said tomorrow is the day. I made him watch the breathing video and practice breathing before bed. He was like, I've been b... Read more
On the down side
Friday, May 08, 2015      2 comments

This morning I woke up without joy in my heart. Instead there is that tingle of angst. That deep pit of despair. I hate these mornings. A day where I know it will be an uphill battle just to go through the day. A day where all I want is to be on... Read more

I'm in the middle of a panic attack. I've been having them at least once a week the last 2 months. Last week I was in the middle of walking my dog and almost ran back home. I just needed in my bed immediately. Today I know it is because I starte... Read more
When reading people's stories
Wednesday, May 06, 2015      7 comments

I've been reading a bunch of people's weight loss journeys lately that are success stories. A light finally came on today as to why none of them have resonated with me. My weight is NOT holding me back. All of these people (who started at weight... Read more

Happy Cinco de Mayo! So I was determined to get back, REALLY BACK, to the gym this week. Not just walking on a treadmill for 20 minutes or the bike for 20 minutes. Serious getting back with getting ready to start lifting again. I love lifti... Read more

It was a lovely weekend around my house. Friday my mother-in-law came to visit and arrived just in time for dinner. It's so refreshing to have company and still eat just the same and as healthy as you would had they not been there. Saturday we a... Read more
Eating habits
Thursday, April 30, 2015      4 comments

A couple months ago, after I had fractured my arm, my husband decided that he really needed to work on his portion sizing. I had been trying to do that for myself and he didn't always make it easy. But at that point he was ready and he was on a ... Read more

I feel so good after my phone interview this afternoon! This is how I felt after my phone interview to get into grad school. I think this is a good sign. I told my husband on Saturday that I figured out that this is the job. He asked how I figur... Read more
One of those mornings
Thursday, April 23, 2015      1 comments

I've been struggling this week with a sinus infection that was moving into bronchitis. I haven't slept the best. This was especially true last night when I went into a coughing attack at 3am and gods know when I finally got back to sleep. So nee... Read more
