Progress and epiphanies

Lost three more pounds. Yay! I know right now I’ve got plenty of excess crap to burn off and it won’t be very long at all before it evens off and I have to start fighting for those pounds. But that’s okay.

Epiphany was the word of the week.

Epiphany #1: I’m turning forty in September and, because I think my forties are going to be my most awesome years yet, I want to enjoy them. That means being healthier … Read More »

Traveling, tests and nerves

Yesterday I registered for the RWA National conference, which is in Anaheim in July. The whole family’s going, so it’ll be part work and part epic family vacation.

Tongue twisters at the crack of dawn

If I can do that again, my weight next Friday might start with a 21-something rather than the 22-something it’s been since I had the Short Kid. (Actually, looking at some pictures, I suspect around the time he was three I was hitting 23-something or more.) And, no, it’s not comfortable discussing my weight, but I’m not alone and maybe somebody … Read More »
