I have a lazy question. Do you know how many points are in the smoothie? I mean, I know I could enter it all but I was wondering if you figured it out yet. I'm glad you're feeling better, you look fantastic!

Seems we've.spent the whole weekend in the house. It's been raining. A lot. But sometimes it's kinda nice to have an excuse not to go anywhere. So my quote for today is... The happiest moments of my life have been... Continue reading

Sleep in. Stay in bed until at least 6:00 am. Make everyone breakfast before you get your coffee. You don't really need it, after all, you DID sleep in. Hop in the shower while everyone is eating. If their mouths... Continue reading

1. Today I spent a sweet day with my littlest. He had no school and the two biggies did. So we snuck off all sneaky-like to the zoo. He's fascinated with animals right now, and gets much more excited about... Continue reading

I normally don't post about food or recipes, I'm not a food blogger. But I am a food eater. And if you know me, you know that I have been a Weight Watchers member forever for about 3 years. So... Continue reading

So, Oprah's done today. I watched the show this morning, coffee in hand. I had planned to watch it later from the DVR, but my curiosity got the best of me. It was a fine show. Relaxed, contemplative, calm. She... Continue reading

1. Really? Has it been that long since I have written a blog post? Really? 2. I have no excuses, I've thought about it often but just have been too distracted with life to post about it. 3. I'm blogging... Continue reading

I just realized that my last post was two weeks ago, and it also had the word Spring in it. Except it's still cold. Today's weather, damp and grey and chilly. Whatever. I've been a lazy blogger. But it's not... Continue reading

Yes, the clock on the wall has changed, but the one in my brain has not. I'm trying trying trying to shake the sleepy but it's tough. On the upside, we have been seeing slightly (very slightly) warmer temperatures and... Continue reading

Seriously. I don't know how much more I can take. It's gray, gloomy and cold. Not really snowing, thank God, but we're getting either flurries or rain. And not the pretty, Spring-like sprinkles that make the grass smell all pretty.... Continue reading

Cathy, First, I want to ask you, how can you look at those pictures and not be proud of yourself? You look fantastic! I read through all of the comments up until now and I have to say I agree with ALL OF THEM. But I also wanted to tell you that I just had this same conversation with my Weight Watchers leader. I have been bouncing up and down 3-5 pounds for the past month. Part of me feels like I've just been a bit sloppy. I've been doing the same type of exercise for so long that maybe my body is bored (like my brain) and has decided to stop losing. The weather isn't helping me one little bit. I feel like so many people have been saying they're frustrated and stuck and sick of it, just these past few weeks. February is a bitch, I think. And it's kicking my Weight Watchin' butt. So I've decided to try and change things up. I got a step aerobic video and step, I'm ditching the treadmill for a month, and I'm working in two days of strength training (video) a week. I'm gonna stop goofing with my points and do the program, using all of my extra points. I'm giving it a month and I'm gonna see if it makes a difference. I've been at the 75 pound mark for too long. I can complain and moan, but I really can't give up. If I'm upset now, I'll be in some serious trouble if I go back to where I started. I've been at this for 2 years and 11 months. I lost 50 pounds in the first 7 months. You do the math. But the one thing I know for sure is that backwards is not an option. I hear from some women in my meetings that when they were stuck they started the strength training and it really pushed them through. I know one woman who lost 100 pounds and then hit a plateau that lasted YEARS. She started strength training 2-3 times a week (she is a runner by the way) and in a few weeks the scale started moving again. She went on to lose 40 more pounds. Don't lose hope. You've done fabulous things for your body. It will repay you by sticking around alot longer.

Haven't been much of a blogger lately. Thoughts are swimming around in my head and I can't seem to get them to settle. The weather is killing me. I'm sick of my treadmill and want to go outside and walkwalkwalk... Continue reading

Accepting that life doesn't always go the way we want. Things change from moment to moment, and we have to adapt. Accepting that my week, so nicely planned out on my Mickey Mouse calendar, is only a "rough draft," and... Continue reading

That's what we say when we have nothing to say, right? When there's that lag in the conversation where nobody has anything to add? Nothing new here. Status quo. Still winter. Still cold and gray. Still doing my thing. No... Continue reading

The beginning of the year is always a time for resolutions. We speak of new beginnings, fresh starts, clean slates. Erase the old, welcome the new. I'm guilty of it myself. Every year, for too many years, I finished off... Continue reading

So, I'm back. And cold. Really cold. Seems one of the side effects of losing weight is losing my built-in insulation. I never used to be cold like this. I'm seriously considering wearing those long underwear things that people who... Continue reading

I've been neglectful. Of my blog, of other blogs. Of my plan. Not horrible, off the charts neglectful. I'm not buring myself in twinkies and ice cream. Just slacking. Yeah, that's it. I'm a slacker. I've been working out, although... Continue reading

Sigh. I know, it's been too long, little blog. But I've been oh. so. busy. Life got a little wacky when the chillies started back to school. My schedule's all funked up. I've had meetings at school, appointments and that... Continue reading

I'm a stream of consciousness blogger. Sometimes it works, sometimes notsomuch. I try to get over there at least once a week. Since I haven't really kept up with the scrapbooking it helps me keep some sort of story going. So, I head on over and just think about what's going on, and start typing. Seriously, I almost never edit, except to throw in a couple of pictures here and there. Maybe that's why I have so few readers! LOL!

Thanks, ladies! I know, we think that with the kids out of the house for a few hours we'll get something done, but I end up spending almost as much time at their schools (three different ones this year)! *waiting for Christmas break*

Time to start a new school year. For two of my chillies, it means a whole new school. My big girl is starting middle school, 5th grade. New building, new teachers, new friends. I know she'll be fine, but she... Continue reading
