Wednesday, February 03, 2010      9 comments

Beth has a nasty cold again. She gets absolutely everything. If anyone around her gets a cold, she’s going to catch it and it’ll be 3x worse. And she rarely gets anyone else sick. In all the tests last year, her immune system was tested and ... Read more
Final Comments on Weekend, Cookies, and Running
Monday, February 01, 2010      11 comments

I had a rough weekend. I didn’t get in as much exercise as I wanted to (though I did get in a couple sessions) and I didn’t eat that well. That was partly because other people were preparing the meals, and partly because I made a large batch o... Read more

Friday, January 29, 2010      13 comments

(Please forgive my typos. I'm sure I've got a lot. I didn't re-read this entry at all, and I didn't spell check.) I'm afraid the Attack Of The Killer CC Cherries continued through Thursday. On Wednesday night they completely tore my gut ... Read more

Sunday, January 24, 2010      21 comments

I had a roller-coaster of a weekend. It started as I was getting the kids ready to go to school. I heard DH say, "Oh $#!#!" That was a little strong for language he'd usually use around the kids. I was hoping it wasn't that big of a deal, bu... Read more

Ah Ha! THERE'S my weight loss! My "Usual" Workout, and the Kids' Race
Tuesday, January 19, 2010      14 comments

You'd think I'd have learned by now... after having done this for so long... do NOT whine about the number on the scale when you know you've been doing the right stuff. If you hang in there, it WILL budge. LOL! This morning, my scale said 151... Read more

Monday, January 18, 2010      12 comments

I see this has turned into a very long blog. I figure only the people who have followed my blogs for a while would be all that intersted in the issues I update below. So I'll just lead with the other stuff and then go into the issues. My ... Read more

Saturday, January 16, 2010      7 comments

Last night was rough! I got to sleep around 11:30. I slept in the guest room to give Steve a chance at a full night's sleep. Beth has had a really nasty cold for a couple weeks. She's only now just coming off the steroids (yeah, steroids!), ... Read more

Thursday, January 14, 2010      5 comments

I was very relieved yesterday to come home and discover my supplements had finally arrived. So I immediately took two of the magnesium/potassium supplements and I dropped a NuuN tablet (lemon/lime) into 20 oz of water. I bought the NuuN based ... Read more
Calf frustration, but a bright outlook
Wednesday, January 13, 2010      11 comments

Yesterday was a very frustrating day for me. But today is already much better. Last night as I was picking the kids up at school, I already had them all buckled into their car seats when I realized I must have left my keys in the school. ... Read more

Monday, January 11, 2010      8 comments

Well, I guess not only was my unofficial weight of 153.4 a good one, but this morning it was down an additional lb from that for an official weight of 152.4. Interestingly enough, my hydration level was identical again to that of last week's we... Read more

I'm hanging in there. I haven't received my magnesium and potassium supplements yet. I need them! That would be the only problem with online shopping... transit time. I've done pullups a couple times since my last blog. My shoulder is d... Read more

Thursday, January 07, 2010      7 comments

Last night I had planned to do a full workout, testing both the calves and shoulder to see how they felt. But I wound up getting a headache around 3 that never went away despite taking Tylenol, Advil (because of the calf), and being plenty hydr... Read more
