The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: Boxing, No Prisoners.

15th April 2015 | 3 Comments

I’m taking no prisoners – mainly because I don’t have the energy after another heart-pumpin, keister-moving session with Jeremy the Trainer. I’m calling him “No-More-Mister-Nice-Guy” Jeremy because he is making me work my patootie off. He’s always smiling and ever so gentle as he pushes me to go further than I thought possible. And I’m [...]

The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl – The Reboot! My Trainer Got Real Today!

8th April 2015 | 2 Comments

I knew it was coming. Last week, Jeremy the trainer was such a nice young man, gentle and kind. Today, he was still kind as he gently kicked my butt. It felt good – even when I fantasized about flinging that weighted ring thingy into the window instead of moving it slowly “to the right [...]

The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl – The Reboot! My Physical Assessment and (EGADS!) My Eating Habits!

5th April 2015 | 2 Comments

Day Two of my journey to fitness was a session with tiny Kimberlee and involved a physical assessment and a few simple questions about my eating habits.

Well, I’m back to it again. I have officially decided to get healthy. Only this time I’m getting help and I am accountable to someone. Today marked my first session with a trainer and a fitness team. It all started in February while visiting my dear friends in Colorado. My friend is 83 years old [...]

I am back at it. I have had so many false starts that I refrained from posting about my latest effort to lose weight. But it’s been several weeks now and after losing 16 pounds I am formally declaring: IT’S ON! I am obese. I am a fat ass bitch and I’m sick of it. [...]

The Amazing Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: Back at it.

4th February 2011 | 2 Comments

Missing In Action. That’s what they’ll say about me at the gym. I have fallen off the wagon. Oops! I wish I could blame it on “The Knee Chronicles” but I hopped off the ole’ girl awhile before that. However, I am not discouraged. I figure as long as I am still living, I can [...]

The Amazing Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: Starting Over.

8th November 2010 | 3 Comments

I hope the title of this post spells it out for you. I have not been diligent in my quest to change my physical self. I must confess that I have been eating with total abandon, have done no exercise and frankly, I haven’t even given a damn. I have been eating a lot and [...]

P.S. I forgot to pack my girdle…

2nd October 2010 | 5 Comments

OMG!!! It’s true folks! I forgot to pack my girdle this weekend. I am performing at a black tie event without a girdle. You might ask: “How could this happen?” Hell, if I know. I have never- let me repeat – never, ever, forgotten my girdle. And we ain’t talking no prissy, wimpy Spanx shit. [...]

Was it not Goldilocks who sat in a chair and broke it? That chair belonged to one of the Three Bears. Well, I wasn’t at the home of the Three Bears. I was sitting with a good friend on a barstool in his kitchen when suddenly I lost my balance. The chair seemed to have [...]
