I wrote an entire blog this morning that was pretty much about how sometimes situations can stink- you do everything you can to make it better but, in the end, sometimes you just have to, as we say in our house, embrace the suck. I took a ton of... Read more

I made it, barely, but I made it. Down .8# today. I had fully accepted that I likely gained weight this week, the second week of the challenge, after breaking even in week 1. I was fully prepared to own it but I am down (and I didn't dare step b... Read more

End of week 1 for the fall challenge- and, the results are..... I broke even. My first thought was, "O crap, I'm already behind and I'm going to have to make up for lost time this week". My second thought was, "Really? That kind of thinking is n... Read more

Yup, it's today! There is just something about the change in seasons (especially the start of fall) that just seems to set the stage for a new start. It;s a great day for the challenge to start. Now, mind you it doesn't feel like Fall with the t... Read more

I took a personal day today. My work allots 2 of then a year and I hoard them. We can call in for ANY reason we want- bad hair day, rain (I live in LA and we drive like idiots in the rain), sun, locusts, or just because we aren't feeling it that... Read more

I've been really good lately about planning my meals, especially lunches. I do this for many reasons, not only to keep me on track. I like to know what I am going to be eating, and I detest having to run to the cafeteria which is about a quarter... Read more

I made it through the week! I am proud to say I outran the donut that was stalking me this am. It was Krispy Kreme, too. Yup, it was. I decided to stay away from the parts of my office where all of the delicious (and evil) treats lurk on Friday... Read more

I am a believer in "signs". I feel like sometime the Big Guy Upstairs feels the need to send an implictly clear message when we are either not picking up on subtle hints, or ignoring them. I'm pretty sure I got one of the those the other day and... Read more

Day 2 of the 21 day challenge. I had a reality call on Friday. I found out that a friend of mine from high school had passed away earlier this year. I had always been meaning to get back in contact with him and was finally getting the guts up t... Read more
