General Update
Tuesday, September 23, 2008      2 comments

I've been watching The Biggest Loser for the past few seasons. The premier was last week. I had a gut wrenching moment toward the end of the 2 hour episode. I had looked up the contestants online on NBC.com and looked at all the women's h... Read more
State of the Birthday Address
Thursday, September 18, 2008      2 comments

Today I am 37. Looking back over the last year, I've done a lot of changing. At this time on 9/18/07 I weighed about 190-something. I had started losing weight over the summer (had started in July around 200-something, but wasn't follow... Read more
I passed the Air Force Fitness Test today!!!!!!!
Wednesday, September 17, 2008      4 comments

I can't tell you what kind of happy dance I'm doing right now! I've been on a high all day long because of it. I have lived in fear of this test for 4 years! The Air Force came out with this new test while I was pregnant with my son (2003... Read more
General Musings - Scooba, husband's job, and Biggest Loser
Wednesday, September 10, 2008      1 comments

The scale is being nice the last couple days. This morning I saw 166.6. If I can hang in there through Saturday it'll be a good weight loss this week. The goal weight for Sat is 167. Unfortunately I'll be away from my happy place (my treadmi... Read more
Proud of my workout
Tuesday, September 09, 2008      1 comments

Two nights ago I walked for 51 mins and then jogged very slowly (4.5 mph) for 9 mins at a 1% incline to simulate running on the ground instead of a treadmill. My foot didn't seem to hurt any more the next day than it has been, so I consider tha... Read more
I have a new goal... Excellent on Air Force Fitness test
Wednesday, September 03, 2008      2 comments

Tonight after doing my 1 hr on the treadmill (incline walking - I can't run yet due to plantar fasciitis) I did my ab workout. Then I decided to test myself again on the situps and push-ups. I was able to do all 40 sit-ups with about 7 s... Read more
Still here... really!
Tuesday, September 02, 2008      0 comments

This time my absence wasn't from failure and shame. I've actually been quite good. I was just really that busy. Work was always where I had the time to post. And with my new job, I'm just busy the whole time! I'm hoping to find some time du... Read more
I'm back. Struggling badly. Resolved to keep going.
Friday, August 29, 2008      3 comments

I'd love to say that my absence was entirely due to stress and being too busy on my trip to DC. But, frankly, that wasn't all of it. I have been incredibly bad diet- and exercise-wise for the past week and a half. It's amazing... I managed to... Read more
Quick update
Thursday, August 21, 2008      1 comments

I'm going to make this quick because it's already 9:15 pm and I want to be on the treadmill by 9:30. I normally aim for 8:30, but I felt like sitting on the couch & watching the Olympics after I got my kids to bed. I just felt like I deserved ... Read more

Wow. It's been too long since I got on a computer to add a new blog. My apologies to those of you who follow it. It's also not good for me not to get on here since this is the only journal I have of what's going on in my life. I find bloggin... Read more
Closet Cleaning - Amazing experience!!!!!
Saturday, August 02, 2008      3 comments

As I begin typing this, I'm not done sorting through my closet yet. But I'm well over half way done. I'm afraid my original estimate was probably right on... so far it's taken me 2 hours! Anyway, why it's been such an amazing experience..... Read more
Second chance to see my intel school buddies
Friday, August 01, 2008      0 comments

Back in January I had a trip to DC. I got together with a bunch of my Intel School friends (from 1994). Unfortunately, I weighed 192. I wasn't happy about that since none of them had seen me since I gained all the weight. But I enjoyed seein... Read more
Daughter update
Thursday, July 31, 2008      1 comments

Yesterday was my daughter's surgery. She had two procedures. One of them came out clean which indicated that she does not have the gluten problem. That was a major relief. The second one showed some inflamation of the bowel. They did a biop... Read more
Hanging out here in the high 160s
Tuesday, July 29, 2008      0 comments

The good news is that despite my recent struggles, I haven't gained any weight. The bad news is that I haven't been losing at my old pace, but that's entirely my own fault. In my last blog I mentioned my hip had been hurting. Due to how m... Read more
Got the job!
Monday, July 21, 2008      3 comments

I got a call this morning and I got the promotion. I was composed and appropriately enthusiastic on the phone with my new boss. But when I got off I was flooded with two completely different emotions at the same time. That was pretty weird. ... Read more
