Building on last week...
This is the first weekend EVER that I've felt like I accomplished something significant. I have been trying for years to get my house in order, but I've never managed to get on top of it before.
It seems like I am always behind and before ... Read more
My biggest hurdle - ENERGY
My biggest hurdle is exhaustion. I went to the grocery right after work, came home and put the stuff away, ate some dinner, and sat for a few minutes.
I know that when I go to the grocery, my biggest hurdle is to get stuff prepared - for... Read more
50+ lbs gone - FINALLY!
Talk about a slow loser.

I'm doing fairly well with my goals. It sounds like a lot, but they are so inner-connected that they are hardly separable.
Here's part of what I'm working on:
1) staying on budget and on plan (healthy eating)
2) save money
3) lose 3... Read more
I deserve a break - but no McD's!
I have worked HARD today. I still have laundry to do, but I got a lot done today in both the kitchen and the laundry.
I enjoy Sylvester, but the belly to the ground inspection of the newly mopped kitchen was a little much. You'd think he... Read more
I am doing fairly well today. Every dish (except the glass that I am currently drinking from) in the house is clean! WooHoo!
The kitchen floor has been cleared of cat food bowls, cat toys, and whatever else has found its way there and is no... Read more
Diet pop - my experience.
Every nutritionist I have read anything of has indicated Diet Pop (or pop of any kind) is not very good for you. I decided to do an experiment.
I drank only iced tea (no sweetener) for about 3 weeks and lost steadily. I did not change my d... Read more
Goals for today!
I took today off in order to finish some things in my house that I had started and that i think will impact my ability to stay on my healthy eating plan. I got all my errands done on the weekend, so this is the day to stay in and stay focused... Read more
Has anyone tried that sugar substitute - Truvia?
I bought just some packets to put in Iced Tea. I put one packet in....couldn't taste it at all.
Put two packets in....same. Seems worthless to me.
Just wondered if anyone had any di... Read more
A pretty good day...
I did grocery shopping, and shoe shopping today. I also cleaned the fixtures in the bathrooms (still need to do the floor) and started getting the kitchen cleaned and organized again. I cleaned out the pantry and tossed some stuff that was o... Read more
Not a good morning...or is it?
Got up late, missed my water aerobics...just overall not feeling very well. Nothing major - just a little headache, achiness in joints...probably related to the COLD weather in Ohio the last couple days.
Anyway, I got up, started getting r... Read more
I thought i should start the year getting up to date! In early October, I lost my big black cat, Jake. Oliver didn't deal well by himself...and kept me up about 5 nights... Read more
Goodbye to my beautiful boy, Jake!
I'm taking my baby boy, Jake in to have him put to sleep tomorrow. I can't watch him suffer anymore. It's so hard to say goodbye to him. I love him so much, but he's hu... Read more
My friend, Jake.
Jake has been a very sweet friend for 10 yrs now. I took him to the vet yesterday because I had noticed some changes and he seemed to not be feeling well.
I wish they co... Read more
Still plugging away at it...
I haven't blogged in a while. I sometimes find it helpful, but what I've found most recently is that if I put the effort into actually preparing meals and snacks and going to the pool every day, I really don't have time to do a lot of other thi... Read more
