    Weight Loss Patience*

    Losing weight has never been easy for me. I’m not saying it’s a walk in the park for everyone else, but I know there is a group of people who seem to be able to stay focused and determined once they decide to lose weight. They buckle down, do what they need to and keep their eye on the prize. I know a few of them, and I’m always so impressed that they look SO GOOD just a few weeks after having a baby. I’m in the other camp watching in frustrated awe… eating a McCain Deep and Delicious cake, wondering why I’m not losing weight. My problem is this:…

    Baby Rolls*

    Four months. Where on earth did it go? Yesterday was my little Ruby’s 4 month birthday, and we celebrated by having naps and going shopping. (I may or may not have purchased a pink jean mini-skirt for her. Don’t judge me.) She is growing like crazy and is learning new things all the time… but as she gains her baby rolls, it’s time for me to lose mine. I’ve used this blog as a platform to push myself to lose weight more than once over the course of the (almost) six years that I’ve been writing here. My greatest success was the year Peeah got married, and I came within…

    Chocolate Free Since Aug. 23*

    (image found at: http://www2.worthingtonlibraries.org/teen/blog/Image/icons/chocolate.jpg) …of 2008. That’s right lovelies–today I have been Chocolate-Free for an entire year. I’ll pause for a minute to let that sink in. *pause* Annnnnnd I’m back. haha! A year ago I decided that I needed to change my diet as I was running 3 – 5km every day but still wasn’t losing any weight. At the time Spart had also decided to forgo chocolate, so I decided to do it with her, thinking it might help. …the first week I stopped eating it I lost 3lbs. *hangs head in shame* I’m not sure how much I was eating back then, but it was a lot.…

    PEBUAC* (I am smrt.)

    Oh, hi Tuesday. **Have you voted in my poll yet??? (–>) Today felt like it went by reeeeeeeally fast. Yesterday was a slow hazy headachy day (I only slept for 3 hours on Sunday night… oy evay) and today was a blur! It started off a little rocky, but turned out nicely. Let’s recap: After finally sleeping MUCH better last night I woke up feeling like a new woman. I sent the Hubster off to work, curled up in my huge computer chair that I recently stole from the Hubs side of le office and caught up on some lovely blogs until I decided it was time to run. Now…

    Weighing In on Weight Loss & Our Story*

    Well, it’s Tuesday again which means it’s time to report on my current fitness challenge. Unfortunately, I didn’t lose a pound this week, I just maintained my current weight. However, I’m not sad about it because I have good news! Like most women out there, I have a collection of “Skinny clothes” (if you try and deny having that pair of jeans, or that jacket that you’re saving for when you lose a few, I won’t believe you! haha). I have quite a collection of Summer Skinny Clothes that I keep at the back of the closet, you know, just in case. Yesterday I tried on a pair of shorts…
