Weight Wait

It’s time for a progress report on my weight loss. The good news is I have lost 27 of the 52 pounds Weight Watchers says I need to lose. The bad news is I don’t feel like I look better. I don’t even feel thinner. My clothes are telling a different story, of course, but [...]

Weight Watching

I’ve been back on the Weight Watchers bandwagon for ten weeks and I’ve lost 22 pounds. I have 30 left to lose, according to all the magic charts for height and age. The last two times I did WW I didn’t qualify for the age bonus. Oof.
Just ten weeks ago I weighed more than I [...]

So That Happened

I have neglected this blog for too long. It’s not that nothing has happened. Too much has happened. Too many entirely blog-worthy things. It’s the words that didn’t happen. It’s not you. It’s me.
Here are the highlights, so to speak, in mostly chronological order:

I went back to Weight Watchers. On-line only this time. Much to [...]

Making It So

It’s not exactly what I had in mind with my recent Make It So post, but it has to be done. I signed up for Weight Watchers on-line program today. I weigh more today than I did the day I gave birth to either kid. It’s not pretty and I feel like absolute hell. It’s [...]

enormous changes at the last minute

I’ve been a bad little blogger. Not that I haven’t been thinking about it. This post has been rattling around in my brain for weeks. It started in late August when I knew the family was in for some schedule changes when Oliver started at his new school. I started trying to modify my sleep [...]

bumpy rides

Oliver and I spent a great weekend in Milwaukee. It rained for two days, but we were not there for the weather. Now that he’s a little older, we are seeing him becoming afraid of things that once did not phase him. For instance, flying. He has never been bothered or fearful of flying before, [...]

shreddus interruptus

We interrupt this regularly scheduled shred for a number of reasons.

Oliver and I are off to Wisconsin this morning. Two buses will get us to the airport, then one plane to Milwaukee. We are visiting some Clumber friends, then spending the rest of the weekend with Tika, her husband, and their new baby. I’m calling [...]

holy guacamole

Today was a day off from the Shred, so I knew I needed to take a good walk at lunch time. Since I didn’t have time to pack a lunch this morning, walking to Chipotle for lunch seemed like the best option. I spent a little quality time with Mr Google and the Chipotle nutrition [...]

shredding with the family

The whole going to bed early thing didn’t really happen last night. Not surprisingly, the whole getting up early to shred was equally problematic this morning. Since I received something resembling divine inspiration (should you believe in that sort of thing) at my Weight Watchers weigh-in today, I resolved to do the shred workout when [...]

better off shred

I had a weak moment last night while hanging out on Twitter. Kristen, of Motherhood Uncensored fame, started tweeting about shredding. I had heard of it, and looked at on Amazon for all of half a second before running away in fear. Like I said, weak moment. I up and joined Kristen and her merry [...]
