Thoughts from August

Monday, August 31, 2009

I just re-read my birthday blog. Wow, can you tell that I was down. Things are looking much better today, the last day of August. So much has happened since May. I ran a 4-mile race. . . the whole way. . . .on July 4 (and I wasn't last!). I've established a walking routine with a great walking partner. I've lost 36 pounds since we started this, and I'm not totally disgusted when I look in the mirror.

There are still some days where I desperately wish I could just chuck the whole program and cook some really rich food (thanks a lot, "Julie & Julia" movie). On the upside, though, I am going through my extensive cookbook collection, figuring out where I can trim the fat on some really great recipes.

And I started a blog. No, not just this blog, but a blog on Blogger. "The Ambivalent Epicure." Wow, does that title sound snooty. In any case, though, I'm trying to document my struggle with loving food a bit too much and learning how to make it work for me. I don't know if it's going to work, but you never know 'til you try.
