The obligatory year end post

In the last year I’ve spent a lot of time looking at other people’s blogs, getting ideas about what I’m doing right, wrong, and everything in between. If you read a lot of blogs, this time of year you’ll notice a pattern: EVERYONE is recapping their year and planning for the next. To be fair, …

Making progress

Happy Thanksgiving! This year I’m having a bit of a non-traditional Thanksgiving. Neither my mom or me felt like really “doing” Thanksgiving this year, and It didn’t make a lot of sense to go see my mom for less than a day, so I’m staying at home for the day. But it’s been a busy …

Random update on a Sunday

I haven’t posted much since getting back from Kentucky because I’ve kind of been in a funky state of trying to get caught up and up to date and also get my breath back. But life definitely moves on, and as several things have happened, consider this post a way to get caught up! I …

opsimath (or me dealing with the aftermath of shopping)

opsimath, n. [‘ A person who begins to learn or study late in life.’] Today was a busy one for me. I got up, made a quick run to the Farmer’s Market, went to a class, then ran to the TRAG gallery for a shift. After that ended I picked up my friend JJ and …

Just a few updates

I (finally) finished the sleeves on my sweater. It seems like it took forever, but as I said, I’m trying to look at it like my weight loss project and just keep plugging away. Next I’ll start on the front, then put it all together, and do the button band. Speaking of weight loss, I …

I was afraid of this

I am just entering the extremely busy season at work. This is my second year going through the “year end” process (Multnomah County, like most governments, has a fiscal year calendar that goes from July 1-June 30) and while this year is going more smoothly than last, it’s no walk in the park. Today I …

Finally a moment

It’s been a week since I had a moment to sit down, let alone write. Frankly, it’s been a little TOO busy around here, and I’m glad to be facing a three-day weekend to tackle a few things. Almost every day this week I’ve had something I meant to write about, but it’s just been …

Why I won’t let one up get me down

Today was weigh in day and for the first time since starting my lifestyle change endeavor I was up. Now, last week was not a bad week for me, so this was a little surprising. I didn’t go over my points and I exercised every day. However, it was also not a great week for …

Remember the knitting when loosing weight

I’ve been a little blue today for no particularly good reason. Today is also weigh-in day, but I was expecting good things and I wasn’t disappointed. Another loss for a total of 29.6 lbs obliterated! Unfortunately, I still have a long ways to go. That distance is very daunting and a little voice starts to …
