three simple goals
Monday, August 29, 2011      2 comments

Just like the Spark says: keep it simple and easier than you think you can do, then build from there. 1) Don't eat anything when I come home from work. Just by-pass the fridge and go upstairs to go to sleep. a--4) Brush my teeth at wor... Read more
So maybe it's all about support!
Tuesday, August 23, 2011      1 comments

I've kept the weight off for almost 2 years now. I've been thining of what kind of support I have in place and why I can seem to pick my self back up consistently now instead of yo-yoing up and down 30-50 lbs. Things seem different these days,... Read more
great bike ride in VT

On vaccation in VT again. Just came back from a 32 mile bike ride through beautiful farms and rivers and pastures loaded with cows and manure smells. I love it. I also went for a 2 hour hike this morning with the pooch in the woods-- quie... Read more
Day two of consecutive wins!
Monday, August 01, 2011      0 comments

Ok, so it wasn't an official race like yesterday's run, but it was on the bucket list just the same. Yesterday, Sunday, even though I had run a hard race on Saturday, I still went ahead with my plans to do the beautiful bike route I had don... Read more
I swear, I wasn't going to run!

DH has been training for a race for a while. This race is 8 miles of hills-- I've done it before years ago. I decided on a whim to do it with him this morning-- I hadn't trained and I hadn't planned on it, but I'll do anything to get away from... Read more

I got up at 5:30 and was out the door by 6:00. Sometimes that is so hard to do but I know it always feels so good after. So I do it anyway. I went for 38 miles. A lot of it very hilly, and they were the kinds of hills that never seemed ... Read more

I got up early after working last night and went for a run with Bentley. We're in the midst of a heat wave, and the only way I'd get us both out for a workout would be to get us done together. I've only run with him once before, and it was a sho... Read more
I need my alone time

I just realized one of the causes for the constant sense of stress I have lately. DH started working from home. Great in that it saves on gas money, but I'm never alone here anymore. Every time I walk into the house, he comes downstairs to se... Read more
Salvage day II
Monday, July 18, 2011      0 comments

This is the second day I'm back on track. I just wish I knew or at least understood what it is that makes me snap into the old, hurtful patterns of beating myself up with food. Anyway, the important point is that I was able to stop it and the ... Read more

OK, I really blew it these last three days. I wish I could pin point what starts this up and what makes it end. Well, I guess *I* make it end. Oh, ok, I guess *I* make it start too. I weighed the lowest I was on Tuesday. 129.8. I've been ... Read more
I met my goal! (anticlimactic, really)

I weigh 129.8 this morning. Jeeze, how much closer could I be! But I made it. I saw 120s, and I'm VERY excited! Now I have to find a way to not eat my feeling of success. Isn't that just absurd? But true. At least I know it. My ultimate goa... Read more

I'm feeling really proud right now. I learned so much about myself during the vacation and it was such a huge success to come home and know I had done so well in so many ways. Bobby's hike topped them all (his cardiologist wrote back today and... Read more

Today is my last day in VT. Well, for now. I get to come back in two weeks. I'm so proud of myself for having fun this week and for doing well with food. I'll tell ya, it's a desperation move on my part really- I'm not going to stop comi... Read more

Today will hopefully be one of the best days of my life. It already is, actually, because I'm even considering doing this. After all my little guy has been through, I never in my life thought I'd see him walk, let alone carry a backpack and go... Read more
