On a Mission [+ Weigh In]

   My May goal was to run 31 miles in 31 days. Mission Accomplished! On to the next one. I’ve set a goal to have an official mission statement before my BDay. I have a job that I don’t hate, but I feel like I’m not living up to my potential. I want to do something different, […]

Please Don’t Acknowledge Me

This picture is of my dog Star (left) and my Mom’s beloved Bebe (right) having a little puppy party just because I’d walked into the room. It’s good to be acknowledged for doing very little.

Week 68: One Year With Weight Watchers

I’ve totally nailed weight maintenance! Oh, I’m supposed to hit goal weight before I start maintenance? Po-ta-to, Po-tah-to. I’ll get there.

Weather’s been extreme already this Spring, so I want to […]

Happy New Year!!

We’re here! 2012! I hope your 2011 was wonderful. Or at least was a good jumping-off point for what will be the legendary Year of the Dragon. For me 2011 was all about work. On my body.  At my job. But I didn’t put much effort into other parts of me. Good thing the new […]

50 Pounds Down!

Woo Hoo!! Party Time!

Week 44 Weigh-In

Confession. I’m being lazy now. Three workouts all week. Not preparing my own meals. Wrong answer. I should be totally motivated to get to 175 and hit the 50 pounds lost mark. I mean, I LOVE celebrating milestones. You remember my “They Fit!” excitement when I fit into those size 18 pants? And I should be […]
