The Quest for the Final 13.8: Day 21
Thursday, November 12, 2009      5 comments

After whining yesterday about wanting the scale to move, it did! My body tends to do that. It hangs on a particular weight for days and then, bam!, it suddenly drops a lb in a day. It did that before, and it did it last night. The good n... Read more

Last night I had to jockey with my husband for the treadmill. It kind of annoyed me. He was home all day and didn't workout at any point. And since he's training for his PT test, he's running. And that means the treadmill if he doesn't go ou... Read more

I spoke a little too quickly when I patted my back on getting through Thanksgiving. I didn't realize my new program does a potluck before Thanksgiving (just what the world needs...!) But I think I'll provide loaves of pumpkin bread and banana ... Read more

Wow... what a weekend! In so many ways. As I've mentioned in previous blogs, my family does Thanksgiving early. It works really well for us. We avoid the massive holiday travel hassles, my sister and husband both work for airlines and have a... Read more

I'm cleaning out my files at work and I ran across a "poster" I created for myself back when I started my journey on SparkPeople in March 2008. It has two "MyModel" images; one at my starting weight, and one at my goal weight. And it says..... Read more

I weighed myself this morning and was actually a little disappointed. I shouldn't be. I have no right to be. It's unreasonable to be. I'm trying to remind myself that there's nothing wrong or abnormal with the weight I saw. I saw 157.2. Th... Read more

When I left work last night to go run, I discovered it was really cold. I very seriously considered not going running since I was afraid it was cold enough that running wouldn't warm me up. I also rationalized that with as much as I'd done lat... Read more

I saw an interesting quote today that I'm going to add to my SparkPage. "Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow." Yesterday turned out to be quite a workout day for me. When I left my la... Read more

Here I am in Los Angeles. I'll be running later today. I wound up going to lunch with a fellow-reservist since she "owed" me from months ago. That gave me a moment of unease this morning. As I mentioned yesterday, I had my preplanned food wi... Read more

Tonight I head off to Los Angeles. We had a great time at the zoo today. The polar bears cooperated by swimming around and playing for us. ... Read more

This has been a bit of an emotional roller coaster over the past couple days. David was NOT good in school yesterday. The note I got home had me ready to find our family a child psychologist to get to the heart of the problem, tell us what to ... Read more

Okay, so here I am trying to write daily blogs for the (hopefully) final couple months of my push to goal (145). That means that the blogs are going to be infinitely more boring, but hopefully much shorter! Though with my blogs, "shorter" is a... Read more

I did my 60 min incline treadmill walk last night while watching The Biggest Loser. Daniel either has an undiagnosed medical issue or he's not quite following the plan the way he thinks he is. David was good at school and kept his blue ca... Read more

Yesterday was a good day. David got a red card (one infraction) which is WAY better than he was last week. He tried so hard to keep his blue card. He was telling his teachers that he was going to keep his blue card so he could go to the carni... Read more
