About Me

My photo
About me, always hard to put into words a description about myself. We always see ourselves differently than others do. My likes: I love sports, all kinds. Especially NASCAR and baseball. Yea, strange I know, a bleeding heart liberal who likes NASCAR and country music. But here I am. I also am profoundly proud of the relationship that I have with my children and my family. They made me who I am today. Pink is my favorite color. I like all kinds of music, except perhaps rap. I am a rabid NPR listener and love my doggie. I work full time, am a semi-vegetarian, a voracious reader and a wanna be writer. Doing all that I do in the beautiful South Florida sunshine.

Timex Ironman

They have it in pink and you can control your iPod with it.

If I don't start loving my daily exercise now, what will do it?

oh, yes, that's right the feeling that I will get from feeling strong and being strong, and looking hot.

yea, I am that vain

This is so funny.......alli, just don't do it.


Seriously, folks. That has got to be some of the funniest shit (pun intended) that I have read in awhile. And I totally needed that laugh.

In other weight loss related news, I am down 2 lbs. Which would be great if it wasn't the same two pounds I gained last week. So for the month of July, I maintained.

Great, that was NOT the goal.

Update on my foray into running

Can you call it running if I walk more than I run.  Honestly, when did I become so completely out of shape. Oh, yea, this past year.

Well, I will beat my body into submission.

And walk some more.

Podcast part deux

I cannot believe I haven't been turned on to the joys of downloading free podcasts before today.  I will use these little nuggets of information and audio overload to sit on the bike more, and or walk/run more.  

this just may have been the  boredom buster that I have been looking for. You know I'm the queen of multitasking.

my dinner date

Food wise was FABULOUS!!  We went to a seafood place on the water, and other than the wine, and 1 piece of bread, my dinner was totally core.

And it was so good.  Dry grilled Mahi, sweet corn on the cob and thick sliced jumbo organic tomatoes w/basil.  It really was yummy and I was satisfied half way through.

Hopefully, not to much damage done.  Weight in on Tuesday and I have 8 WPAs left. I need to be hard core until then.

that is all

Enthusiastic Exercise

Where can I find this???  Is it within myself? Or maybe exercise is like men, and I am constantly choosing the wrong one.

Either way, I need to develop some enthusiasm for exercise.

Running Diary

At Border's yesterday. I bought the Complete Runner's Log.

A training and Fitness guide. I bought it because I want to start running again. Jodie says all the time, your body will do whatever your brain tells it to. She also said that she didn't develop a runner's body overnight. She had to force it into submission.

So I plan on beginning my submission tomorrow morning. I will absolutely succeed if for no other reason that Pat said he doubted me.

A challenge as it were.  And I absolutely won't take that lying down. Other things with Pay lying down, oh yea, but that kind of challenge. Not a chance.

When someone figures it out

Could they please let me know.

Why did I eat 4-5 points worth of pretzels last night. I wasn't hungry, but I did it anyway.

Jesus. Ok, so you counted the points. Good. You got up and worked out. Good. That's credit. Give yourself credit for the good things you did. 

Today, eat your plan. Which is easy during the day. It is at night that I have a slight problem.  I am working on it.

I need to re-read Beck's.

Eating to Satisfaction

I finally realized what eating to satisfied means. Not today, but within the last few months.  I don't always pay attention to it. But I have to. I have to not eat to full. In order to be truly successful with weight loss, you (all of us) need to really pay attention to the satisfaction level.

It is disheartening to know how little food I truly NEED.  Want is another story all together, but the reality is that food is fuel and the amount that we need is miniscule.  If we are honest about it.

And anyone who knows me knows, that I am all about being honest. Brutally so sometimes. Portion distortion is my biggest problem. Even if the foods are core. They aren't to be eaten to excess.

So note to self, watch your portions and your satisfaction levels.


Is not a very becoming character trait. And one that I abhor.  So if it is the way "I eat now" then why the fuck is the scale moving up. Oh, wait, because I haven't been practicing what I preach. 

So, there. Now I faced the scale and I have decided that I really need to get back and what a minute, if it is the way I eat then why do I need to get back. i need to not eat like that is what it is. Focus on the veggie's.

Like Jodie said, it isn't rocket science, stop shoveling shit into your mouth and get up off of the couch.  Pretty simple. 

So do it already. You know the drill. it should be easy now that it is
#1 Summertime, less responsibilities
#2 No relationship to worry about
#3 Because it is time.
