2014 Q2 Post

Monday, May 19, 2014      3 comments

Seems like I'm posting once a quarter at this point, LOL All is well :) I went through what I believe was a giant re-feed from mid-March through the beginning of May because after doing the Whle30 last year and being told about the 5:2 die... Read more

Present and Accounted For

Tuesday, January 28, 2014      4 comments

Only three months have passed since my last entry! Not bad, considering... LOL The good news is that this year's Holiday Food Fest was somewhat moderated when compared to that of 2012. I ended up 5 lbs. over what I was before Christmas, b... Read more

The Good and the Bad

Monday, October 21, 2013      2 comments

On the plus side, roasted chickpeas are GOOD :) On the minus side, the party got cancelled. Not only did it get cancelled, but after all my angst-ing about cake, I ended up buying one at Publix Friday afternoon. It was called an Apple Sta... Read more

Ahoy Mateys, There Be Rough Waters Ahead!

Thursday, October 17, 2013      5 comments

Yep, I'm totally having a flashback to International Talk like a Pirate Day. Thank you for all your comments re: the Holiday Eating Frenzy. It's good to know I'm not alone at least! But good grief it makes me insane. My husband and I hav... Read more

And Two Steps Back

Monday, October 14, 2013      3 comments

I am such a stereotype it kills me. I do really well for a week/ a month/ a quarter/ whatever, and then some massive dining event occurs (usually several clumped up together) and I feel as if I'm right back where I started, both psychologic... Read more

Still Progressing :)

Sunday, October 06, 2013      3 comments

So far so good, still. I had a cookie yesterday (tiny - 60 calories) that wasn't planned for and a bowl of frozen yogurt that was planned. I'm only obsessing about the cookie to any degree because I'm trying to eat just what I've planned right... Read more

Definitely Progress :)

I did well yesterday, hooray! I stuck with my plan even though the stupid Halloween candy that Those Who Sign My Paychecks crave was sitting out all day. It about killed me because I LOVE the Reese's pumpkins (love!!! Even though they're terr... Read more

How'd That Happen?

Thursday, October 03, 2013      9 comments

Well, while I didn't fly off the rails yesterday, I did deviate somewhat from my planned food intake. It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't my best moment either. When it came time for my marvelous daily chocolate, I thought "Hmmm... you know,... Read more

Day 3 On the "Let's Not Get Crazy Here" Diet...

Wednesday, October 02, 2013      4 comments

Day 3 and all continues to go well. My meals stay pretty static on a weekly basis because I tend to do a big "cook-up" on the weekends for my work lunches, and for dinners I stick with fish because I can generally trust it to thaw by the time I... Read more

Success!

Okay, one day down. I stuck with my plan, hooray! And I stuck with it in spite of my delightful husband saving me one of the last two Reese's Pumpkins. He really is good about not pushing, because when I say "no" he accepts it and moves o... Read more

So Far, So Good

Monday, September 30, 2013      5 comments

Today is going well. I got the Halloween candy away from my desk (the Reese's pumpkins were calling my name), and have stuck to plan for both breakfast and lunch. Since I don't tend to snack much at home my hope is that I won't lose my mind an... Read more

Miscalculations are a bummer.

Regarding my latest attempt at the Whole30, I give. You hear me, universe? I give!!! This is clearly not the time for me to be doing an uber-restrictive food plan, because I'm going into a ridiculous "deprivation" mindset which is j... Read more

Checking In :)

Monday, September 16, 2013      3 comments

Wow... okay, last post was January. Yikes! Warning: babbling commences. Read on at your own risk. Anyway, to sum up the last, say, NINE months, I dropped the holiday weight and have since bounced between 138 and 145. Right now I'm ... Read more

ALL the Food!!

Monday, January 07, 2013      4 comments

Good grief. The holiday toll on the scale has been impressive. On December 1st I weighed 135. This morning, the scale said 149. Uhm, oops? Now granted, some of that is absolutely water weight. We've been eating out like fiends ... Read more

And yet again! Accountability, ain't it grand?

Wednesday, May 09, 2012      3 comments

I'm back! How's my week going so far? Well, not as I planned, but not badly either. Monday, in spite of my plans to dine upon Smoothie King for lunch, I ended up instead at Chipotle. Why, you ask? Because a) I had a dentist's appointmen... Read more
