Well, I let myself get off a regular schedule of working out at least 10 minutes before work or on my days off. After nearly 2 weeks of not getting any good cardio, I need to make a concerted effort to get back on track and get moving. I was d... Read more
Attack of the sweet tooth
Well, so much for following my healthy eating pattern today. Totally blew it. Somebody brought in donuts today at work and I managed to resist for about 5 hours then I yielded. Unfortunately, once I eat something sweet, I can't eat just one. ... Read more
Food log "additive"
There are many little daily goals that I'd like to accomplish related to sleep, food, wellness, exercise, and finances. I actually have a column on the right of my food log (one page a day) that has these grouped and listed with check boxes in ... Read more
12 hr vs 8 hr challenge
Okay, I'm trying to get on a schedule that I can pretty much stick to even on my days off. Waking up isn't so much the problem--the radio goes off at 5 am. However, when I get to bed seems to come out of a random number generator. Working 12 ... Read more
An overall good day
After the funk from yesterday, today was great! Had a bunch of errands to run in town and decided to walk between appointments. It felt great! The sun's been out and a cool breeze, lots of green and birdies chirping. My mood's improved, which i... Read more
Stay in today...
One of these days, I'll remember to stay in today--yesterday has come and gone and I can't do anything to change it; tomorrow isn't even here yet and (not being able to predict the future) I have no idea what it will bring. Today, this moment i... Read more
Odd version of mashed potatoes
A couple of weeks ago in the cafeteria at work, one of the dietitians was serving samples of what looked to be kinda like mashed potatoes but not quite. They were really good too. Turns out it was pureed cooked cauliflower with garlic, kosher ... Read more
It's amazing how much our society is focused on fast food, quick fixes, alcohol, and using sex to sell a whole gamete of products. Portions are out of proportion. I just read a blog on a 600+ pound woman who wanted to be in the record books fo... Read more
keeping the momentum going
Just got back from a 3-day road trip. Feels good to be back home! It's a challenge to find healthy options when you're on the road. Unlike prior attempts at weight loss, I didn't let this trip derail me. I was able to get my walk/run in every d... Read more
I think I may have found the motivation I need to really get my backside in gear. The ladies hurling team just put out a call for registration for nationals in Sept over labor day weekend. This is my sport that I absolutely LOVE!!!! Nationals i... Read more
Holy bat poopie!
My thoughts are with all those who have been affected by the recent storms. I saw some clips on the news during lunch and I was shocked! Holy cow!!! There was one clip that showed an entire roof swirling around about halfway between the ground a... Read more
The quest for a routine
I've just been thinking back on times I was able to lose weight and exercise regularly. The commonality was getting into a routine and staying with it. At the time I had a Monday through Friday job with regular hours. Now, the days I work, the... Read more
Time to get back on track...
Between birthday gatherings and a chaotic schedule at work, I haven't been doing a very good job of tracking or staying within my calorie range. Fortunately this week, I'll have time to get back on track and get some exercise in. Deeeeeeeeep b... Read more
I've now got a path near home that's safe for running, walking, dribbling/soloing. Good news is I actually went out and walked it today! I want to move up to running it and joined the 5K your way rookie running program on SP.
I feel bette... Read more
I did good today until about 2 or 3pm. The munchkins were still there and the jelly beans had been put out on the desk. As the day progressed, my overall stress level progressed and that was all she wrote. I'm glad I've got the next two days of... Read more
