Day 3: How Did This Morning Get Busy?

Tweet

Well, the voting got done yesterday, and I think it was my obsessing over a few election results here in Illinois that slowed me down this morning (How about our Governor race where in the end it might have come down to abortion and gay rights?), yet here I am, about 5 minutes behind in […]

Only One Pound

Tweet

I survived my bachelor party weekend!  Yup, some friends of mine decided to drag me out of town and I told them I wanted to go to New Jersey, which seems weird I suppose, but Long Beach Island is a great vacation spot, and I got to stay on a private island!

It was an enlightening […]

A Birthday Assessment

Tweet

So my birthday was a few days ago, and although not where I would really like to be in terms of my weight loss, I am down about 8 pounds so far, which in the grand scheme of the world is about 2 pounds a month.  Even so, I am feeling better, I keep using […]

The Exception, Not the Rule

Tweet

The weather broke (it was a gorgeous day here in Chicago) and I was curious, so today I did something I know will rarely happen, but might, every now and then – I spent over an hour and a half exercising.  No, I did not do this all at once, instead it was grouped into […]

Doing Nothing, So It Seems, and I'm Hurting

Tweet

I was in a parade today.  The thing is I didn’t even have to walk the parade, I got to ride on the back of a car. And yet I’m wiped.

I guess the getting off to the bad start came with the time change because 7:30 on this Sunday morning came an hour quicker than […]

Under 210, and Holding! (or should I say dropping?)

Tweet

In anticipation of my visit to my doctor today for a check-up, and with all of the extra paying attention to what I’ve been eating, and with the stepping up my exercise regimen, I was nervous stepping on the scale this morning, especially with my huge let-down a few weeks ago. But there it was, another […]

211.6 - S&#@

Tweet

I stepped on the scale this morning and from the title of this post you can probably guess that it didn’t go nearly as well as I thought it would.  I would say that I’m perplexed, but I guess I’m totally not – I think my problem is my weight loss plan as is, because […]

Writing and Exercise Biking

Tweet

So here it is, day 3 of Lent and day 3 of the “I’ll sit on my exercise bike for at least 15 minutes each day and see what happens” part of my weight loss program. I’m happy to report that as I’m typing this blog my legs are pedaling while my fingers aree tapping […]

I So Love My Fiance!

Tweet

And it’s not just because she is greatest – It’s also because she has resurrected the Count Chocula portion of my weight loss plan! (At least for a little while). You may recall that I ran out of Count Chocula, thus interrupting my morning ritual, and for the last week I’ve been stuck with […]

I Know Skipping Lunch is Wrong...

Tweet

I know skipping lunch is wrong, but today was one of those days.  I guess it’s not really that I skipped lunch, it’s just that I forgot about it.  That happens to me, sometimes, especially when I get so focused on whatever tasks might be at hand, and then, low and behold, it’s 4 in […]
