Weightloss

Picture This

March 9, 2014

McDaddy bought me a recumbent bike for Christmas. It was always my favorite piece of equipment at the gym, mostly because I could sit and play Words With Friends or stalk my Facebook friends while getting my miles in. And also because, unlike the treadmill, I didn’t have to worry about falling and busting my face. […]

Top 10 Posts of 2013

January 2, 2014

When I first started this blog back in November, 2008, I kept a pretty close eye on the analytics. Now, I just take spells (I’m starting to sound like my granny!) where I’ll check on them every now and again. Yesterday, I received an e-mail from WordPress called “Your 2013 Year In Blogging.” I thought […]

Totally Random Nonsense

February 27, 2013

It is with regret that I announce that I shot my wad on the SLIMpossible diet today. While at the hospital for most of the day, I found myself with about six minutes to scarf down some “lunch”. I made a quick trip to the hospital snack bar and settled on a bag of Doritos […]

February 11, 2013

And since there was no school, that also means I didn’t have to check any math homework. But, just in case you were wondering, Stevie did receive the requirements for yet another […]

Just Some More Of My Crazy

February 6, 2013

It is Tuesday evening and I am watching Dance Moms. It is that time of the month and I would knock a joker flat-out right now for a chocolate cake donut connection donut. Folks, 39-year-old hormones do not play. Especially when they’ve been on a  five-week biggest loser quest. Phew. It feels good to get that off of my […]

Pep In My Step

January 29, 2013

It was a beautiful day in our neighborhood. The good news is, it was a wonderful, beautiful, perfect for January 70 degrees. The bad news is, this… As much as I love have the JEEP in the garage on cold January mornings, I miss having the SKY here at the house for rare 70 degree days in […]

Well, lookie there. It’s Tuesday already. And time for another award-winning edition of What I Learned this week. Only, I’ve never really won any awards.
