Sunday, February 15, 2009      2 comments

Well, this week was not a stellar week for me, health-wise. I had some flu-ish thing, weakness, fever and all that, and had to stay home from work a couple of days. I was back on track with exercise yesterday, but DH and I went to the movies (Sl... Read more

Travel Report
Monday, January 26, 2009      1 comments

I'm doing it! I have been eating more calories each day than I usually do, but I've made generally good choices along the way, eating my fruits and veggies, and drinking a lot of water. My oatmeal-for-breakfast plan is working really well for me... Read more

It's a new year...
Saturday, January 03, 2009      1 comments

I had a dream last night that was a bit odd. The most memorable feature of it was me, hefting moving boxes in a skimpy shirt, and a bunch of guys in hard hats admiring my strength and washboard abs. (Nothing rude, just compliments). I woke up wi... Read more

I just read the blog, A Two Minute Exercise to Improve Your Mood (it's in my favorites). My mood's pretty good already, since I spent the day making Christmas presents and am almost done now. Here's what I'm thankful for at this moment: -... Read more

Wednesday, December 10, 2008      3 comments

I'm a member of a group on another website that's doing a Biggest Loser Challenge. Somehow, this has inspired my friends to want to rival the real BL for the amount of exercise they can do in a day. OK, that's an exaggeration, but they're really... Read more
When I exercise I feel sweaty, strong, and surprised.
Sunday, November 16, 2008      1 comments

I thought I'd check out the weekly blog prompts as ways of meditating on this weight loss journey. My response to this week's prompt is all about the fact that I've been exercise-phobic since childhood. Gym class scared me to death. I was always... Read more
Snicker victory.

It's been a crazy time in my life lately. We had a person leave at work, and with financials the way they are, he won't be replaced. I've been given the project of cleaning up his department so that its work can be parceled out to others in the ... Read more

My lesson from Beck today (see my last blog entry for more info Beck) is one I'm a little uncomfortable with. Up to this point, everything has been *so* right on, and right in keeping with SP. Here are some of the strategies: * I've made a ... Read more
Great psych/diet books from my vacation

The picture above shows the Sea Vista motel at Topsail Beach, NC where we went on vacation. See the little cupola up on top of the motel? That was our "honeymoon suite." Really, it's a sweet little efficiency room with a great view. We had the d... Read more

Next week, DH and I are going on a beach vacation. I plan to read many books, take long walks on the beach, and totally relax. One way for me to totally relax is not to take a computer. If I take a computer, I'll noodle around online too mu... Read more
Remember the feeling.
Tuesday, September 30, 2008      2 comments

I felt lousy this morning. Eaten up about someone else's emotional stuff at work, sleepy because the sun wasn't up yet and I hadn't slept well, and not at all ready to face a day. But I promised myself a good cardio workout--I've been slacking f... Read more
