LOL, no- Not a real baby-bump. I have been so good for so long and I had a really bad week. Hormones plus stress plus crazy work and I get the munchies. I blew everything out of the water. I have continued to test glucose but otherwise I have b... Read more

Well, it's me 1, shrubs 0. I went out for yard work today. It was crazy hot (as Texas usually is in the summer) but I was committed. I took out three full shrubs and reduced another 3 to teeny tiny stumps. I have two huge piles of brush to move ... Read more

I am getting ready to leave work and hit the gym. I am thinking back on where I was three short months ago... lethargic and unmotivated. I was at my highest weight of my life and not doing a thing about it. I had been scolded by the doctor to n... Read more
Yard Work 101
Monday, July 26, 2010      4 comments

Two days of intense yard work tearing out old and dying shrubs and hauling the lot to the street. I am whipped. I have bruises, welts and scratches. It looks like I got into a fight with a mean tom-cat and he got the best of me. Oddly enough I f... Read more

So last night I planned to go to the gym but then my mom called to meet her for dinner. So off to dinner we went. The early evening passed into the late evening and at 11:00 I decided I had to get home. On the way home (and on a whim) I decided ... Read more

It's never easy returning from a vacation but I think I am back into full swing at home and at work. Last night was hard. It was raining and Chloe (Wonder Westie) was looking at me for a walk. I needed to do my 30 minutes but I was not excite... Read more
My first blog AKA Wondering when the bubble will burst
Tuesday, June 29, 2010      5 comments

After so many years of yo-yo dieting I wonder if it is possible that this can continue to work. This is the first time I have really "changed my lifestyle" and for that reason it does not feel like a diet. I have lost weight by eating more freq... Read more
