a poem, of sorts

Tuesday June 14, 2011

The windows are open all through the house

and I got to thinking

These are the kind of days Minnesotas forget about winter

with all its the cold and all its darkness

These are the days that you walk outside with barefeet

and wish you had a hammock

Judy is sleeping on the steps

Jake is on a call

I’m editing photos

The curtains are blowing all around, and the air is sweet

and I got to thinking.

slow carb update

Saturday June 11, 2011

Mini update, after 9 weeks of following the Slow Carb/4-Hour Body way of eating:

Anne’s starting weight: 139.9

Starting state of mind: Moody, pessimistic, and procrastinating.

Current weight: 128.6

Current state of mind: Happy, productive, and motivated.

Weight lost: 11.3 lbs

I have changed how I eat and it has changed how I feel — and for that, I am¬†extremely¬†thankful.

I still maintain a minimal amount of daily (or every other day) exercise – light weights, air squats, walks around the block, and maybe MAYBE some sit-ups.

Feeling good — and lookin’ better!
