The Quest for the Final 10: Flu Shots, Christmas Trees, and Triathlon practice
Wednesday, December 02, 2009      4 comments

Tonight is christmas tree day. And flu shot day for the kids (regular, not H1N1... we don't have that one in our town yet!) They were both sick when we would normally have gotten them their flu shots and then we forgot to schedule them once th... Read more
The Quest for the Final 10: Scale... Grrrrr! and Race Photo
Tuesday, December 01, 2009      8 comments

Well, the number on the scale didn't cooperate this week. But I'm only annoyed in the sense that since my goal is a number (145), it's that number I want dropping each week. But since I have a Super Scale (the Tanita Ironman) I also know that ... Read more
The Quest for the Final 9.8: Stubborn Scale and New Races
Sunday, November 29, 2009      7 comments

My scale this morning continued to be stuck at 154.8. I've been 154.x for the last three days. If it doesn't move tomorrow there will have been no weight loss for this week. Grrr. Intellectually I understand that happens sometimes, and typic... Read more
The Quest for the Final 9.8: The 5K today and my run afterward
Saturday, November 28, 2009      4 comments

Today when we got up my son mentioned that he'd heard rain. "Rain?" I thought? What rain? I looked outside and was seriously disappointed to see very gray skies and rain. Rain! It doesn't rain here (okay, at least not much). So it certainl... Read more
The Quest for the Final 9.8: My plan at goal
Friday, November 27, 2009      4 comments

Today was a more relaxed day than I've had lately. I even got to take a nap! We headed out this morning after breakfast to try to chase hot air balloons, we have hot air balloons over my town most mornings. It's great and I take them for gran... Read more
The Quest for the Final 9.8: Hiking, Pullups (happy dance), and Shamu (photos)
Friday, November 27, 2009      6 comments

Yesterday, since it was a short day of school for the kids, we went up to Idyllwild in the San Bernardino Mountains to go hiking. Idyllwild is just an hour north east of where we live. Since it's in the mountains it has a totally different fee... Read more
The Quest for the Final 9.8: The Biggest Loser (spoilers), Maintenance, & Hiking
Wednesday, November 25, 2009      6 comments

Last night I got on the treadmill to watch my Tuesday night traditional Biggest Loser episode. Since I'd done my full workout with pullups, abs, and pushups the night before it was 'just' a treadmill night. So I decided to go beyond my ususal ... Read more
The Quest for the Final 9.8: Turns out I'm small framed. Hmmm!
Tuesday, November 24, 2009      8 comments

I've been realizing lately, as I get closer to my goal weight, that I've probably been lying to myself all my life. Well, I didn't start the lie. I think I was lied to and I happily bought into it. I have always believed I was probably me... Read more
The Quest for the Final 9.8: Good weekend, slight hiccup, and update on Husband
Monday, November 23, 2009      11 comments

I had a pretty good weekend with a bit of a hiccup that didn't wind up sabotaging me. But it gave me a glimpse of the fact that I'm not "cured" of my food issues while I'm on this drive to goal. On Friday morning I went to the store to pic... Read more
The Quest for the Final 11.6: Why SparkPeople needs a demented happy dance emoticon!
Friday, November 20, 2009      10 comments

Last night I had another record-breaking workout. I have been unsuccessfully trying to do the Week 3, Day 2, Column 1 workout from the 20 Pullup Challenge (5,3,4,3,5). Mind you, I'm doing these underhand (chin ups) not overhand (real pullups).... Read more
The Quest for the Final 11.6: Sleep and the dreaded potlucks!
Thursday, November 19, 2009      9 comments

Well, I don't have an awesome workout to brag about in today's blog. Instead I had an awesome night of sleep to brag about. Since I workout mostly at night, and I can't start until 8:30-9pm, sleep is usually what suffers in my life. Tha... Read more
The Quest for the Final 11.6: Denial and Frustration
Wednesday, November 18, 2009      9 comments

Last night I impressed the heck out of my husband. He wound up being in the exercise room with me talking while I worked out. So I hopped on the treadmill, cranked it up to 15% and increased the belt to 2.5 mph, and started walking. Soon (whi... Read more
The Quest for the Final 11.6: Update on David and Waist Measurement
Tuesday, November 17, 2009      6 comments

Last night I wound up working on a flyer for the going away lunch of one of my former employees/coworkers. It's a parody of a funny and risque situation we were in on a trip (caused by this departing coworker), so I had a lot of fun putting tog... Read more
The Quest for the Final 11.6: my personal Holiday 2009 Challenge
Monday, November 16, 2009      6 comments

Very cool, today I'm down 2.2 lbs from last week. After the slight gain the week before because of Thanksgiving (my family does it early) I was hoping for a loss greater than my usual goal of 1.5 lbs per week. That also puts me back on track ... Read more
The Quest for the Final 13.8: VERY proud of myself!
Saturday, November 14, 2009      9 comments

Here's how tonight's workout went down. I took two days off from pushups and pullups because Tuesday was the last day I did them, Wed was scheduled to be off, and Thursday I decided ahead of time was going to be a no-workout day so I could get e... Read more
