ADF Day 1: It’s On Now

Okay.  The dreaded Holiday Season has passed, finally, and now I will be joining the throngs of Americans who return their thoughts to weight loss as part of a New Year’s Resolution.   I guess it’s nice not to be alone in this (not that I ever really am; I can nearly always count on Pangie to say, ‘Yeah! Let’s do it!” in response to any suggestion of a renewed effort in this quarter), and this time around I REALLY am not alone.   My wedding in June has become an impetus for my mother and sisters to start making a concerted effort also, so we’re all in it together now.

ADF Day 4: 18 miles and counting…

I’m working on miles 19 and 20 right now.  Not bad. 🙂  I’m proud of myself.  I also made it through Down Day Number Two with considerable success, and this morning the scale says I weight 186.8.  That’s post-Down-Day, so I’m probably at more like 188, but still.  I’m down, and that’s what matters.

ADF Hardcore, Day 19: FAIL! Or not… Oh heck, I don’t know anymore.

Bah.  I failed again. 

Well, sort of.   I mean, I can still switch out today and tomorrow, and I probably will… so I can save it.  But this whole week has been such a mess, I’m tempted to call it a failure and just try to start fresh on Monday.

Money, Day 12: Spa Day!

This has less to do with money than it does with following up on something from awhile back.  (But there is money stuff at the end, so it’s not a total wash of a post.)

Money, Day 10: Down to the Wire

Okay.. I just checked the account.  With about ten days left to the pay period, we are down to a working total of $37.   Granted, that is not including the $67 that is currently snuggled up in our Savings account, but for the sake of, you know, not being ridiculous about this, I’m going to pretend that money isn’t there.  So.  $37… to last a family of six for ten days.

And I plan to have two other families over for Chili on Saturday.  I’m good. >_<

Cleaning, Day 17: Depression Hurts…

Cleaning is done.  I’m being a good girl.

And now the fog from earlier in the week seems to be lifting some.  However, I’m still having anxiety attacks.   In fact, I’m now getting to the point where I am getting anxious about my anxiety attacks.  Oh, the fun!

Cleaning, Day 16: TMI! TMI!

Just in time for Cinco De Mayo:  TMI stuff.  (That stands for ‘Too Much Information”, for the uninitiated).

Be forewarned. Click at your own risk.

Cleaning, Day 14: Six Flags

We spent the day at Six Flags today, so keeping the kitchen clean was no problem.  We did get the bed made before we left, too.  Go us.

Cleaning, Day 7: Ch-ch-Changes….

Bed, check.  Kitchen, check.  So far, so good.

I’m thinking a lot about changes today.

Cleaning, Day 1: A Fresh Start!

Okay… so sleep was a bust.  I admit it.    I keep trying to understand why that particular goal always ends up being such a challenge, but the answer I come up with is probably too deep and involved to go into here.  So we’re not going to analyze it; instead, we’re going to just start over with something new and move on to more potentially successful habits instead.
