When Is Extracurricular Excessive?

We live in a crazy, busy, hectic world, don’t we?  It seems there is always somewhere to be and never enough time in the day to accomplish it all.  If you have a kid or kids, time is a luxury which is not only sparse but is rarely your own. I have a stepson who is 17 years … Continue reading

The Best Laid Plans

Murphy’s Law has been hard at work with me this weekend.  Despite having a nice little plan laid out for my Saturday (taking my car in to the shop, doing cleaning and organizing until lunchtime and then reading and working on my writing), it hasn’t gone my way.  I did get my car into the … Continue reading

Weekly Weigh In

Let me just start by saying HALLELUJAH!  A holiday weekend!  I don’t think I have ever needed a 3 day weekend more after this craptacular week. Anyhow, let’s get the disgusting (for today) out of the way.  I weighed in at 145.6.  Yes, my weight went up by over two pounds from last Saturday’s official … Continue reading

Staying Positive?

My day job literally made me crazy.  I have too much to do, not enough time to … Continue reading

Weekly Weigh In

Day Twelve – No Loss

I forewarn you, I am starting this post feeling grouchy and downright discouraged.  Why?  Because I gained weight yet again.  Yes, I know it happens.  And I know I need to stick with my plan and I’ll start losing again.  But it’s frustrating, nonetheless, when you don’t see results and the fruits of your labor. We … Continue reading

Day Eleven

Ah, Thursday.  Why are Thursdays usually so long and taxing?  My mood was good yesterday but I was thoroughly exhausted and longing for my pajamas and my bed or sofa by the time I left work.  I was busy all day; the kind of day where I had very few breaks in between.  I was … Continue reading
