How Weight Watchers fits into Life

And… a Blip.

Tweet What’s that saying about the “best laid plans”? I had some good plans for this week. Sunday mid-day I already had planned and prepared my food for Monday.  I tracked, ate well, drank my water.  I even made cupcakes with T, my step-daughter, and ate exactly 2 of them (out of 12, with one…

Without Even Trying

Tweet Today is the 9th day in a row that I’ve done some sort of activity. Now that isn’t much really if you think about it.  I mean, if you want to talk about someone making a an effort to move every single day then you would definitely need to look at Kat, who is…

Taking A Break and Reclaiming my life

Daily 09/11 – What Now?

Tweet OK. I am incredibly bored now. One can only lay around like a lazy sod for so long.  As much as I LOVE being lazy and doing nothing, this really sucks.  Moreover, I’ve done silly things like read stories on the internet about people who went through 3 months of healing time after the…

Daily, uh, bi-weekly, Update

Tweet I had great intentions.  Really. I started logging my food on Thursday, with full intention of sending the information out to the universe the same day.  It was just one of those days. It’s always the way when you have a day that is really out of the ordinary, and that is truly what…
