I really can't complain--we have electricity and have had for the past week, we have working air conditioning. But, last Friday, our water company had some major issues and we had to stop using the water from the faucet unless we boiled it. You ... Read more

DD3 has a droopy eyelid--took 4 different doctors last school year to figure out that she likely tugged on it too hard, hurting the muscle. She looks tired all the time so surgery was recommended--we found an excellent surgeon, got the paperwork... Read more
Easy to give advice...
Sunday, June 03, 2012      0 comments

I was just reading some blogs. I am really good at giving advice like "Don't let the scale have too much power" and "Keep on changing one habit at a time". I have good advice. But I don't listen. The scale is NOT going down for me. Yes, my... Read more

This week was a hot one! And the AC was on at home so the difference was too extreme for me to be comfortable. And I worked 3 long programs and one short at work--plus I still help with a short tomorrow. I'm tired!! But saw an old frie... Read more
I did it--I ran another 5K

And I did it at a 12 minute mile pace!! I can't believe it. You see, I am NOT a runner. I don't have those long legs or that skinny frame. I huff and puff when I run--after the first 100 yards, I wanted to walk a bit. But--I was surrounded by ... Read more

My DD2 graduated today--she earned highest honors--summa cum laude. She earned it! Lots of studying, lots of work, lots of group projects where she did lots of extra work to earn the grade she deserved. She is a smart young woman. Yet--she ... Read more

I have 3 daughters--2 are home--one for the summer and one till she finds a job and can afford to live on her own....and the two of them do not get along. I can complain for myself--but the one takes it upon herself to yell at the other for me. ... Read more

I love my girls--don't get me wrong. They are wonderful young adults--capable, smart, pretty, funny, determined--I could go on and on. BUT they are not very sentimental or demonstrative regarding holidays or birthdays. (I have 3 daughters--two a... Read more
Slowed down--drat

I was doing pretty well on my running....till I fell on Tuesday and skinned both knees and one hand. Tripped on the stupid sidewalk that had tree roots growing underneath. As I sat on the ground, I would have cried if I was younger and Mom would... Read more

Okay, I did a 5K back in December--I am very proud of that. But I said I'd do another so I have to get training. I am doing one of the Spark 5K Your Way plans and also using miCoach--my wonderful brother gave me this for Christmas so I am using... Read more

Scale is moving down a little at a time--at least it isn't going UP! The warmer weather and longer sunlight will help me get out and about and, for a few days, I am cooking for just me so that should help as well. I fix a protein and have LOTS o... Read more

I have been watching my intake and exercising quite a bit since Christmas. However, the scale is going up and up. I am up 10 pounds from my low of 148. I don't know what to do except return to the basics. I'm just tired of starting OVER again. ... Read more

We had a great vacation--skiing in CO for 10 days. Now I am back--happy to have had such a great time but REALLY PEEVED that I did not lose ANY weight. I cooked meals in the condo so I wouldn't over eat. I did not get junk food so we couldn't ni... Read more
Scale still not cooperating
Sunday, January 22, 2012      0 comments

Yes, I know there is more to life than the scale and yes, I know I should be measuring my fitness in other ways. Got that--but I still look at the scale. It doesn not DEFINE my mood but does contribute--especially when I am stuck on a plateau. N... Read more

Today I am NOT an optimist. The size 10 pants are getting snug, I have not been keeping up with the January Jumpstart and will repeat week 2, haven't run in over a week and my decluttering is way behind. I haven't even managed to get 100 points ... Read more
