Here we go again…


In the immortal words of Bullwinkle the Moose: “This time for sure!”

I’d just finished the annual cottage trip with the friends, where we spend the weekend consuming too much food and getting too little sleep. So it was with trepidation that I stepped on the scale the following week to see what the damage was.


Somewhere between last year’s Jillian Michaels obsession and today, I had gained a pile of weight.  I was getting back to the point where my knees ache with any strenuous activity, and I was suspiciously out of breath after bounding up the stairs.

So I’m back on the horse. This horse and I have had many encounters over the years, not all of them positive. But I don’t think that I can afford to stay out of the saddle much longer.

This is my attempt to be accountable each and every day for my body. My current goal is to knock off those first 15 pounds, and get back into daily activity.

This time.  This time for sure.
