I'm in Maryland and we really felt that east coast earthquake on Tuesday. My desk lamp almost shook of my desk. Such a weird feeling in my feet too!! Today, it's massive thunderstorms. Raining out so hard right now, I can't see the far... Read more
If I only had an off switch for my brain!
Monday, August 22, 2011      1 comments

So much going on between work and home, church and family, friends and life in general. I think if my brain had an off switch, I'd be sleeping a lot better. Lack of sleep means carb cravings for me and it was bad all weekend. The melatoni... Read more
Lack of sleep = GAH!!!!!!! If only I could have a coffee IV!!!

I know it was lack of sleep that caused my carb cravings yesterday. And I caved in big time. Last night, I got about 5 hours of sleep, but broken up into a 2 hr "nap", up for 2 hours, then another 3 hours of zzz's. What the frak is go... Read more
Well, officer, how'd she die? We think the elliptical did it in the basement with a iPod cord!

I'm so exhausted today. Between M being on the crappy 11p-7a shift this week, menopause, and various other factors, I've gotten a whopping 7 hours of sleep the past two nights combined. Despite being whipped last night, I did do my 20 mins... Read more

Enjoying being back in the groove of gym and home workouts. Being in a groove is FAR better than being in a funk! So glad we've got the elliptical at home now. I can watch the news in the a.m. and get 20-30 minutes of interval cardio done b... Read more
How can I get a grip when someone keeps shortening the rope?!!!

Massively stressed by work right now and I honestly don't know why I bother letting it get to me. It isn't so much the amount of work per se, but the co-workers. Ok, so being the HR person, I am automatically the "mean" one and thus, having fr... Read more
Pavlov, the ice cream man. Or is he The Godfather?

While seeing/hearing him pass through our neighborhood brings back great memories of my childhood as well as our kids running out for treats when they were little, I feel like one of Pavlov's dogs. I hear that darn music and I start drooling!! ... Read more

Not quite there yet, but it's almost time for the size smaller. Can't wait! Easter was great. All three of our kids were there as well as our son-in-law and all three "granddogs" so it made for a fun day. We had an egg hunt for the dogs.... Read more

Before I joined SP, I was on another similar website for years. I shan't name it because I *do* love the site, but lately, some of the members are showing their true selves. I'm actually friends with a few of them IRL and sadly, one of the... Read more

Weigh in is closing in fast on Friday morning. I fear if I don't see some sort of decrease this week it will toss me over the edge into I don't give a damn land. I did hit the gym last night and did 60 mins of cardio. Did 20 mins of Wii s... Read more
Where oh where has my lower weight gone?
Tuesday, January 18, 2011      0 comments

I'll tell you where....right out the window! I slacked off. Partially due to being busy, but partially due to being in a huge I-don't-give-a-crap funk. However, I'm back where I need to be. This is week #7 back at the gym for me. I ... Read more
Ah yes, the side effects!!!
Thursday, July 15, 2010      1 comments

I'd forgotten about the side effects of adding more fruits, veggies and fiber back into my diet. My tummy is letting me know! Even if I add them back slowly, my tummy rebels for a few days to a week. And this too shall pass.....indeed! ... Read more
Up and down on the merry-go-round of life!

Life's been crazy. Up and down and all around, rather like the scale too. I've let myself down the past few weeks, with both diet and exerise. I have no one to blame but myself. I'm back on track now, but I mustn't let these downward spi... Read more
