I'm at 150.25. Come on. I want to be below 150. I'm wondering about not eating breakfast tomorrow and then exercising to lost 1/4 pound and then weighing myself. Most of me knows that's a crazy idea. But the goal-setting part of me th... Read more

I have not tracked food or exercise since sometime in July. We're an extended family under a lot of stress for a huge number of reasons that all seemed to hit at the same time. Thanks to SparkPeople, I haven't sat and eaten because it fe... Read more

I just realized that Sep 1st is getting close. I won't make my goal of 28 pounds loss, but given I'm over the halfway hump, I'd think Oct 1st is likely. My tendon is healed enough to allow me 20 minute sprints on the elliptical and my rotator... Read more

I'm at the halfway point, but I overslept and missed pilates
Wednesday, July 20, 2011      0 comments

Today is a real mix of emotions. I forgot to set my alarm for my 6:15 pilates class, so I'm feeling out-of-sorts and annoyed with myself. On the other hand, I weighed myself this morning and my weight is at the exact halfway point.... Read more

Thursdays is a fairly mobile day for me. I find myself on the road and hoping not to eat too badly. Today was worse because of the heat. I knew I couldn't hope to keep my homemade yogurt cold enough, so I skipped bringing that. I figured I c... Read more
