Scare-off Challenge - day ???

Weight: 159.2
I think I should retitle this Pile-it-on Challenge!!
Exercise - nile
Food - ehhhhh… not great.
Challenge - we don’t need no stinkin’ challenge!
Ugh! I’d be frustrated with myself, if I had the time! Yikes!! At least I haven’t hit the 160s yet… of course, that could all change the minute I step on the scale tomorrow. [...]

Scare-off Challenge - day 13

Weight: too much pork and apple stew last night!
Sorry, everyone. I’ve been a bit MIA around here. I have a lot going on at home and I’ve not been able to spend any time blog reading. As it is, I’m barely eeking out a few minutes to post here. I’m hoping after this week things [...]

Tomorrow I’m tackling this hard again. Exercise, accountability, conscious effort. I’ve been crazy busy since last Friday. I’m just now trying to catch up with everything.

Scare-off Challenge - day 3

Before everything else: If you have the chance to go see Toy Story 1 & 2 in 3D, GO!! It was so excellent. I forget how incredibly clever and funny those movies are!!! Over 3 hours (with a 10 minute intermission that’s almost too entertaining to miss!!) wasn’t too long at all. My two youngest [...]

Scare-off Challenge - day 2

Weight:155.6
Yesterday I figure (through My Daily Plate) that I ate around 1500 calories. Which mentally has me in sort of a panic because that is a high calorie day for me, which makes two in a row. But I had all really healthy food (except for the two marshmellow ghosts made by the Peep people, [...]

A Million and one THANKX!

Weight: 156.2
I want to thank everyone for their comments yesterday. It was directly because of all of you that I actually, consciously, ATE yesterday. I had a soy protein burger for breakfast and a taco salad with soy protein “ground beef” for lunch. I took my little man Sean out for an early dinner (I [...]
