"Hey Mom!" "Yes," I answer back to my four year old dear daughter. She's got on mismatched clothes, no shoes, and a leaf in her hair. In her rather dirty hands is a worm. My first thought is that she is about to show me how to squish it.... Read more

Rewards: During my interval training on the treadmill I ran a total of 15 minutes. I usually only do 12 and while that may not seem like a big jump, it made a huge difference in how my body felt. (I did five sets of 3 minutes, rather than fiv... Read more

Me: Spent most of last week and the last two days trying to get all my client work caught up. Okay... I was behind because I went on vacation, but I did my best before leaving to have as much as possible done. That never works for me though ... Read more

So I've got thyroid disease with all its lovely symptoms (exhaustion, depression, weight gain, euphoria, 'buzzing' instead of sleeping). I have to deal with it. I have to rethink my life entirely. I have to put together a life that will work ... Read more

The wedding could't have been more beautiful. I made my weight goal (barely) and wore my new skirt. Although I decided at the last moment not to wear the necklace. I have a cute brown blouse it goes with though so I'm still happy. Every turn... Read more

I was down to 180.1 on Wednesday. That's only 1.1 lb from my goal and on Wednesday I was positive I'd make the 179 lb goal by this Monday. But I had to do a bunch of baking yesterday, and while I didn't go WAY overboard, I did try my own creat... Read more

Weight: 183.4 Goal: 179.0 Attitude: Depressed The wedding is only four weeks ago and while there is a good chance my water weight is up, I'm really starting to doubt whether or not I'll hit my 179 goal soon enough to buy my reward skir... Read more

I just had to pipe in and mention that I went to the gym and put a respectable 30 minutes of hard labor... oh um.. I mean... cardio... into the elliptical machine. Now I'm going to bed and praying things go better than last night.... Read more

Wednesday, October 14, 2009      0 comments

There is one enemy that defeats me every time. I fight it (an doing so right now in fact. This blog is a definite defensive maneuver), but the more I fight the worse the problem gets. Lack of Sleep. My real issue is that it isn't som... Read more

Saturday, October 10, 2009      3 comments

I made my second batch of pre-wedding chocolate cupcakes. The first batch looked fabulous. I nice, dark, firm cake. But it was way dry and a bit heavy. This time I had the opposite problem. The cake was spongey and not chocolatey enough... Read more

On Trends: I noticed something interesting today. Being just a little focused on my short-term weight-loss goal, I've taken to weighing myself every day. I've never done that before. I've always heard that once a week is better because it ke... Read more

Wednesday, October 07, 2009      0 comments

Yup! It's true I am down to 181. Yeah! Two more pounds and I am buying the skirt (see previous posts for pictures). Two. It seems like such a small number. I bet I can do it in under 7 days. Being so close to a reward is hugely motivating... Read more

The original goal: Reach 175 lbs and buy myself a gorgeous skirt that is three times the amount I would usually spend to wear to my sister's upcoming wedding. (see previous blogs for photos. I reposted so much I don't want to do it anymore) ... Read more

Monday, October 05, 2009      0 comments

A day and a half later than planned, but I'm really happy with it. The background is my living room -- looking out the back windows. My gorgeous, handmade curtains came out a bit drabber than they are in real life, but it still works. I w... Read more
