- Pittsburgh, PA, United States
- I am in my 40's, and on a quest for better, healthier living -- for me and my family. I have lost 44 lbs and hope to lose more, but my blogging goal is not to gloat about what I have lost, or obsess about what I haven't. I will keep blogging about weight loss, but also plan to chat about other things that interest me; including,improving life for my son who has learning disabilities, the human brain, meditation, Zen and Buddhism and their application to healthy living, books I have read or have waiting on my shelf/Nook to read, what I want to be when I grow up .... basically Life, the Universe and Everything. I have a PhD but that doesn't mean I know more about life than anyone else. In fact it may mean I know less. I am interested in hearing from other people, especially those who also agree they don't know it all. Knowing it all is boring! Do I believe in magic? Not the kind in Harry Potter (although wouldn't that be awesome!), but I believe there is more to us, and this world, than we currently understand or accept, and we have the power to make our lives much more than ordinary.

I am not sure why I was going to wait until next week to start tracking my food? Just felt like being a big baby I guess. Instead I started tracking it yesterday. Yesterday was not a bad day. Today I did not eat too many calories, but way too much sugar. On the plus side, I will meet my goal of exercising 6x this week. It was a challenge because working out with my trainer on Monday really did incapacitate me. That is *not* being a baby -- the first workout has dreadful aftermath. But I did 5K on Wednesday night, weight workout yesterday, and Brazil Butt today. Will cap it off with workouts on Saturday and Sunday. One way or another I will get back on track.
