Oh how wonderful when a kinda-tough week ends. I taught, I worked, I ran the store, I bicycled... all normal things but I seemed to drag a bit through all of it. I all took a little more self-discipline to get myself out the door and on t... Read more

I've had a great week.... I finally got the random number machine to show a number just a smidge smaller than it had been when I got back on the sparky band wagon 10 days ago. Man-of-my-dreams and I put over 100 miles on the bikes AND... Read more
The Random Number Machine
Wednesday, July 06, 2011      3 comments

I live with a random number machine. I stand on it and it gives me a different number every time - a number which seems to have nothing to do with my clean eating or my exercising. I've tried to work in the time of day and the thickness of my ... Read more

Before I get rolling: I have already okayed "as much exercise as I feel like doing" with the doctor/ So if any of this sounds like too much so soon after being in bed with pneumonia, rest assured, I feel great and I am respecting my body whene... Read more

Got the call from the doctor - all the pathology came back benign. All's well. Woosh... all that doubt and hassle was just lifted off of my shoulders in a single phone call. I have one last follow up appointment but it looks like my days of ... Read more

I kept to day 4 of my "spring into shape bootcamp." Truly, the videos are only 6 - 10 minutes and then an additional 30 minutes of cardio 5 times a week. It is not like it is that big of a commitment but it is the everydayness of it that is su... Read more

The last 14 days have just been a blur… I went from one out-of-the-ordinary event/activity to the next without a deep breath in between. Each part of the last 2 weeks is worthy of a stand-alone blog but, seriously, that would take another 14 d... Read more

Day 3 of logging every bite again! This day is much easier than the last two. Somehow on day 3 my attention has shifted from self-denial and longing to remembering what it feels like to be amazingily energetic and light feeling you get from cl... Read more
