Birthday cake, cookies, and Easter candy!
Friday, April 22, 2011      4 comments

I was successful at avoiding all the sugary snacks yesterday, even though it was my next-desk coworker's birthday. She got birthday cupcakes (oh, that chocolate frosting looked amazing!) and home-baked cookies. I brought a couple cupcakes home... Read more

The Biggest Loser Round Two officially began today! I weighed in at two pounds less than last week, which was one less than the week before. That brings me to a total of 18 down since we started in January! ... Read more

Actually, I never had "it" before, so being hit on by a stranger on the sidewalk today really lit me up! Especially when I got home and saw what a mess my hair was, ... Read more
Challenge Day One

We're off to a great start. All my Facebook games are blocked, so it should be easy to continue avoiding them. My oh-so-sweet boss bought me cookies today. I haven't told anyone that I'm starting the Biggest Loser contest two days early, so h... Read more

The Politics of Stupid
Sunday, April 10, 2011      0 comments

I just finished reading Susan Powter's book, "The Politics of Stupid." I was not surprised to learn she self-published; that explained the rambling nature and the poor grammatics, which made it somewhat difficult to read. It was sort of like a... Read more
I feel so lazy.

I listen to other people talk about what they do after work and on the weekends and it wears me out. I just don't know where they get the energy. I know as I burn off my extra weight, it will help give me more energy. I am eating better than ... Read more

'In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto" by Michael Pollan (author of "The Omnivore's Dilemma") is an eye-opening treatise on the Western diet and American way of life. I'm still in the beginning of the book, so I am still in the part about w... Read more

We went to the gym early this morning. I was pleased at how well I was doing on the treadmill. I was going faster during running than I expected and was tickled about that. Still, I was recovering nicely during the four-minute walk portion. ... Read more

I hear chocolate calling my name...
Saturday, February 26, 2011      3 comments

It's sitting right there, taunting me. Fortunately, the beautiful Valentine's wrapping is still on it, making it a little easier to stay out of it. It is only my reward system that is keeping me from eating a piece right now. I am still worki... Read more
