Doing better today

Spreading out my food seems to be effective. I was down 3 pounds today. No one thing will ever work forever, but I'm shaking it loose for now. Woot!... Read more

At the suggestion of a couple people, I took my measurements. They've hardly budged. emoticon But I think... Read more
Tired, sore, and dejected

Biked 15 miles yesterday, did upper body ST, gained 3 pounds. I am getting quite frustrated with just bouncing around at the same place on the scale despite working out so much. We had company for dinner, and yes I ate a bit more than I usually ... Read more
Oh, Monday....

I'm behind on everything today. I admit that this is my fault: I slept in very late. But hubby was sleeping very restlessly last night and kept waking me up just on the edge of falling asleep--he very occasionally does this thing where he moves ... Read more
5 miles!

The first half into gusty headwinds up to 40 mph. Having to pedal going downhill to keep from stopping. The second half was rewarding, though--biking 20 mph! 30 minutes of exercise, and my Bike 30 Days record is still intact. Woot!... Read more
Biking, day 8: resolve...fading...
Sunday, April 08, 2012      5 comments

I'm very stiff and sore today, and it's miserable out: cloudy and windy. I really don't want to bike. It's my rest day, too. Originally, my plan was for a long ride today. I'm now thinking that a very short ride may be in the works instead... Read more
First long(ish) ride of the season

Today's bike ride: 19 miles. Ended up very rubber-legged at the end, but that was at least partially hydration issues. When I finally stopped to drink because I couldn't climb the hill out of the valley, I basically emptied my entire quart bottl... Read more
I am more than my dress size, more than the sum of my scale

There is nothing sadder to me than hearing someone say, "I can't do _____ until I lose weight." Well, maybe the one sadder thing is when I realize that I've been saying it to myself. Now, there are some hard limitations. I'm not going to be... Read more
Biking, day 2
Monday, April 02, 2012      2 comments

I had a doctor's appointment, and then an appointment for a haircut. Neither are very far away, and I'd planned on biking. Then it wasn't as warm as I thought it was going to be. I said to hubby that maybe I should reconsider. "Go," h... Read more
30 days of biking
Monday, April 02, 2012      7 comments

I've signed up for the 30 days of biking challenge, and yesterday I rode 11. The challenge is to bike every single day of April, even if it's just around the block. I wouldn't have gone yesterday, I don't think, but for the challenge calling to ... Read more
How to get my groove back?
Saturday, March 31, 2012      4 comments

My brain keeps telling me that there is no reason for me to still be so weak. I should be recovered. My body keeps falling over in a heap. I am not going to let this discourage me. I am getting more done before collapse time every day... Read more
Good enough to eat!
Thursday, March 29, 2012      2 comments

My mouth is finally to the point where I can eat without excruciating pain! Which meant that last night I enjoyed rather a bit more than I should have of the good dinner I made. The feeling of fullness disrupted me sleep, and reminded me that I ... Read more
What a day!

Making peace with myself

I sat in the movie theater surrounded by the delicious smell of popcorn, but didn't want any. A friend brought over home-baked cookies, and I ate only one. We bought my favorite Girl Scout cookies, and they are still in the snack drawer, leaving... Read more
I went for a walk!

It was slow, and I am worn out. But I got in a little exercise! Yay for recovery mode! Now I just have to be careful not to measure my progress against my previous workouts. I have to be patient and work back up to that!... Read more
