Sunday, June 05, 2011      3 comments

Day 213. Unfortunately Day 212 involved a very serious encounter with chocolate-chip cookies so I'm going to have to rev up Day 213 to get back on track. I'm headed out to the gym for some time with the treadmill and the weights. Those cookies w... Read more

I'm so happy: I've been using the "go to bed just a little hungry" trick, and it is working! And my aerobics class is helping me a lot too. I'm finally almost completely over the Bell's palsy, and today I was able to stay up with my aerobics ins... Read more

Summer weather has arrived with a vengeance so I was searching in my closet in desperation for something cool to wear. I found a pair of capri pants that didn't fit me last summer but somehow escaped the purge of "things I'll never wear again." ... Read more

Yesterday I made it my goal to go to bed just a little hungry. Not hungry hungry. Just not stuffed. I decided on such a "radical" approach because I was getting sick and tired of seeing no change on my scale, even though I've been working hard o... Read more

Did you see the story about the Egyptian mummy found to have clogged arteries? I was planning to skip my aerobics class this morning. The usual excuses: I didn't sleep well; I'm tired; I went yesterday; it's rainy.... Well, that mummy story shoo... Read more
