Hi! Let’s get to this dirty business. I have been a mess. Not giving a shit, depressed, you name it. I ended the last challenge at the same weight that I began it, which all things considered, was pretty much a success. So, I know that I need to focus. I KNOW THIS. I do […]

Where do I begin? Perhaps that I had a less-than-stellar performance during this challenge? {thanks, Karena, for not kicking and cussing at me} Or that I have been in a funk? Or maybe that I should be training for a 1/2 marathon for June 12th, but I just started this week? I should also say […]

Well, hello there. I see it has been A MONTH since I have written on this baby. You probably think I have been avoiding you. And you would probably be right. *cough* So, you probably remember how successful I was doing South Beach in November-Christmas. I lost 14 lbs and was feeling awesome. Then, I […]

I confess that I have been totally out of control. I have been sick. And tired. And depressed. I hate winter. I have been eating everything I know better than to eat. It’s catching up with my ass. Today, I regained control. I forced myself out in -30 degree weather. To do cardio class. Then […]

Yes. I totally half-assed it all week. Until yesterday, then it was all-out awful. I tried to eat my way out of a migraine or something like that. It didn’t work. But going to bed at 9 p.m. did. What is my problem???????? I did pretty stellar on the workout front: Wednesday: muscle work class, […]

That’s the only way to describe my weigh-in this week. Lucky. I am at 202.8 lbs this morning, which is only up 0.2 from last week. I have had a few horrible weeks where I ate everything but my right arm and amazingly, I am still down since the beginning of the power of one […]

Let’s start this off by tackling Mel’s question on reality TV… Yes, I love to love it. I watch reality TV. My favorites? Survivor. Hell, I even applied this month. Big Brother. America’s Next Top Model. So You Think You Can Dance. Love, love, love this one. I occasionally watch The Biggest Loser. That’s about […]

Yup. That’s me. I’ve been on vacation in Colorado since Thursday. We returned last night. I ate a shit-ton of crappy food. We are talking candy, beer, chips and salsa, you name it. I did make a *few* conscious health(ier) decisions. Just a few. I was expecting a much-deserved five pound gain this week. Instead, […]
