My Sunday
Sunday, July 08, 2012      7 comments

1. Wake up at 6:00, start a pot roast cooking. 2. Bike 63 miles in 4 and three quarter hours. 3. Attempt to be nonchalant about this, but WOOHOO!!! 4. Resent that Spark People will only credit me with less than half my exercise minutes. Po... Read more
Amusing NSV

I can't get through a meal without getting food all over the front of my shirt. But tonight was different! Tonight at dinner a bit of sauce dribbled off my fork. Instead of hitting my chest, it dropped straight into my lap. Um, yay? ... Read more

After 40+ years of loving him, I finally got to see Neil Diamond in concert tonight. He may be 70 years old, but he still gives an amazing show. Hubby went with me, even though his experience of Neil Diamond is only overhearing his parents'... Read more
I am lame!
Friday, June 29, 2012      7 comments

No, seriously. I have bruised the ligaments in the pad of my right foot (behind the toes) and am having pain walking on it. It's the rolling motion of walking that causes it to hurt most, and I biked on it without much discomfort. But I need to ... Read more
Paleo evangelism is making me crazy
Thursday, June 28, 2012      11 comments

Apparently I have not lost any weight. Because I'm still eating grains, which are poison, and I can't possibly be healthy. Funny how neither the scale nor my wardrobe reflect this. 65 pounds gone, 6 sizes smaller, despite eating bread. ... Read more
Summer lovin' -- at Walmart!
Tuesday, June 19, 2012      7 comments

Last summer, I couldn't get my favorite skorts up around my hips. On Sunday, they almost fell off my body. It was clearly time to find some new summer clothes, but I didn't want to spend a fortune. So I went to Walmart and picked out some light ... Read more
168-40-56 = 72 hours
Monday, June 18, 2012      4 comments

72 hours every week, once I take out 40 for the work week and 56 for eight hours of sleep every night. 72 hours. Doesn't that just seem like ALL KINDS of time? So why do I always feel like I don't have enough time? Well, at least an ho... Read more
I can buy pretty bras!
Wednesday, June 13, 2012      9 comments

Upon the nagging of my daughter, I went bra shopping yesterday. And you know what I discovered? I am now a band size that allows me to buy pretty bras! Now that I've accepted underwire as inevitable, I found that a whole vista of styles were ope... Read more
Weekend off
Monday, June 11, 2012      4 comments

Spent the weekend out of town and with friends where we did nothing but eat and stay up way too late. Relaxing, but today I'm bloated and tired and off-schedule. Still, life is about those celebration moments, and I'm glad I can go off for a wee... Read more
Back-to-back rides
Friday, June 08, 2012      6 comments

I forgot to mention that the other piece of advice I got from the clinic was to start riding back-to-back long rides. So yesterday I rode 22, after the 40 from the day before. When I first got on my bike, my legs said, "Oh, you have GOT to ... Read more
Training for the Big Ride
Thursday, June 07, 2012      3 comments

I biked 40 miles yesterday, sort of by accident. I had to be downtown in the morning, which is about 10 miles, so I biked in. (I take dress shoes and skirt and blazer with me, and wear a shell top so that I can just pull the nice clothes on over... Read more
Family makes me crazy!

I called my mother today, and found out that: 1. My brother almost died of a heart attack, but the defibrillator in his chest kicked him back to life; 2. One of my sisters - the one who DIDN'T have major kidney surgery -- is now having... Read more
Frustrated with myself
Tuesday, June 05, 2012      12 comments

I am having a terrible time accomplishing anything. I am completely off-schedule and need to get myself back on track. Why is this so much harder to do than to say??? My life works best if I get up at 6:30. I've been sleeping until 8, ... Read more
There's a cage on my chest!!!
Monday, June 04, 2012      10 comments

For years, I have avoided the underwire bra. They aren't comfortable, and the wires poked me under the arms. When I was last thin(ish), I got talked into buying three underwire bras, but then they say in the closet for years. Cue my daughte... Read more
Clothing and NSVs
Friday, June 01, 2012      9 comments

Went to Sears today, because Dear Daughter works there and gets a discount, to pick up a few items of clothing to help me get through the transition time in this weightloss journey. I got a few cute things on the clearance rack, so that's good. ... Read more
