9 Days Is Enough

For the last 9 days, I have been terrible with my food choices. Granted, one-third of it was Thanksgiving/Birthday stuff…and that’s hard. But, the last 6 days have been all about depression and apathy. And, that has to stop. I … Continue reading

Need Control

In January 2007, I reached my goal weight. I had to lose 58 pounds to get there. But, I did it. And, from that time until (around) April of 2013, I was able to maintain that number of (around) 174 … Continue reading

It’s Armageddon

It’s been the worst week ever. And, that’s saying something considering how the past five months, or the past two years, or the past four years have gone. I’m afraid to get on the scale. It’s been a while. But, … Continue reading

It Has To STOP, And Be REVERSED…NOW

I got on the scale this morning and it read 198.1 pounds. I wish I could say this was insanity. But, I know why the number is that high. It’s all my fault. Bad food choices. No portion control. You … Continue reading

I got on the scale this morning and it read 196.8 pounds. I guess that ENTIRE PAN of thick, walnut, brownies that I ate on Monday BY MYSELF did some damage. Actually, the way I eat everyday now is terrible. … Continue reading

Ugh

Ten Days Of Hell

Last week killed me. There was way too much stress coming from five different directions. Work is and always will be one of them – at least for a good while. Add to that major health concerns for 4 immediate … Continue reading

Going Back To Weight Watchers

Before I got on the scale today, I already decided that I was going back to Weight Watchers. (Pretty sure March 4th was the last time I weighed in there.) We were in Disney last week. Before we left, my … Continue reading

This morning I got on the scale, buck naked.  And, it read 189.7 pounds. I want to say “How did this happen?”  But, I know the answer:  Too many nuts, chips, cookies, cakes, donuts, bread, french fries, pizza and red … Continue reading

Race Failure

Well, I ran my race today – sorta/kinda.  This is the worst I have ever done in a race – and it is embarrassing. It was windy out there – very, very, windy. The race was a “3 mile” there … Continue reading

I Need To Get To The Gym Tonight

I had another one of those four day runs where I didn’t get in any workouts. Saturday, my 8-year old son had a rec-league basketball game followed by a party. That took us to 3 PM. And, then, we had … Continue reading
