Wow. It's been almost two months since I've written anything. I guess I haven't had much of interest to write about. So today I go back to the topic I always obsess over: weight loss. Or lack thereof. As you all know, I'm a fat, middle-aged diabetic. No, fat isn't a bad word so let's... Continue Reading →
A runaway train. That's my life. Right now. Since I last posted I have watched my life slip off it's tracks and go careening at full-speed into a wall of self-sabotage. I know I should be eating healthy. And I was. Until about two weeks ago. Okay, maybe longer. I am back on the carbs... Continue Reading →
Missing The Mark
This last week was, I thought, pretty good as far as meeting my goals. I ate well, went to the pool for some exercise, made it to my weekly meeting with the ladies. So you can imagine my surprise when I completely missed the mark on my last goal. My goals for last week: No... Continue Reading →
Change: Good For The Body, Good For The…
Well, it's really good for everything. I am going through what I hope to be a shift (instead of a phase) in my life. I'm making a point to change my thinking surrounding food and my health. I had a friend say a couple of different things this past week that really stuck in my... Continue Reading →
Getting Older Sucks
Gray hair. Wrinkles. Creaky ankles and knees. A sore back. Hell, I think I'm even shrinking. Getting older sucks. Now, I'm not old. I am what they would call "middle age". But damn do I feel... old. And I'm tired of it. As those who know me probably remember I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes a while back. ... Continue Reading →
Lazy. I’m Mrs. Lazy….
...I need a doughnut to call my own.... Well not really. Well, I mean I do, but... I am trying a new positive self-talk thing (not positive self-talk like "you're really good at eating doughnuts). More like: "I'm gonna rock this weight loss thing"! Hmmm. Yeah. I say it. And I mean it. I say it... Continue Reading →
It's been over two months since I blogged. What the hell is going on with me? You know, I have no idea. I think it's all about intentions. And I have the best of them. Seems that everything I start (and don't finish) comes with my best intentions. This blog, for instance. I wanted... Continue Reading →
Trying Something New. Again.
Yup. Again. I guess it's not technically new. But it's new for 2018. Does that count? First of all, I quit smoking. It's been eight days since I've had a cigarette. Most people would probably say "I'm quitting" this early on, but I refuse to. I quit. End of story. I'm not picking them back up. ... Continue Reading →
Conquering The Carbs
What does it take to make a person give a shit about themselves? I haven't quite figured this one out yet. It would seem that some people need a small prod. Some people need a swift, firm kick in the ass. And still yet, some others never quite seem to give a shit at all.... Continue Reading →
