Day 6: points to ponder
Just some stuff I'm pondering...
-- my inner critics: what are they saying? What purpose are they serving? What's an appropriate rebuttal?
-- what motivates me? What is my passion? What long term goals do I have and am I working towards them... Read more
I so enjoy having Mondays off! (but then again, it's only after having been first call all weekend)
After staying up all night, I decided after about half a cup of coffee that I'd just go back to sleep until 9 or 930. Good idea. 3 hours j... Read more
I'm a rambling wreck from Georgia Tech.... Still enjoying that GT is 4-0 and Georgia is 2-2. Honestly, I really don't give a patooty about football. I'm just grateful for having the opportunity to go to Georgia Tech and graduate from there. ... Read more
9/22/11: Day 1
Yay!!!! I made it a day without temptation from sugar and artificial sweeteners. I'm also realizing that I need to work on reducing my carb intake in general. Love me some bread!
Took the latest batch of eggplant and tomatoes from the gar... Read more
Okay, just because someone else says the lemon cake with raspberry in the middle is REALLY good, doesn't mean I have to try it. I don't care how much I love lemon flavored stuff. Of course, that led to the strawberry cream cheese wrapped in fl... Read more
9/20/11: Day 0, again
Okay. No more sugar, no more sweets. I did fine for 63 days then kinda got on that slippery slope. No cravings, no problems. I let the stuff trickle back in the past couple weeks and it's got me feeling squirrelly again. I start feeling suga... Read more
Time to regroup
I've been struggling a bit as of late. I haven't been exercising regularly. A milkshake here, a soda there, burger and fries a couple times. No fast food, but still just as greasy. It could be the start of a slippery slope. Sinus infection. Al... Read more
Experiment eating out...follow-up
Well, after having gone just over 2 months without sugar and then having the yummy real strawberry milkshake on Friday, I've had a headache ever since.
A short one... I'm tired. Actually got a full 11 hours in at work today. Sleepy time! ... Read more
Analogies and symbolism
I met up with a friend of mine for coffee this afternoon. Her therapist is having her work on her "roots" -- they use a tree analogy a lot; friends are branches that get severed, tap roots, etc. It got me thinking about what all makes us... Read more
Experiment eating out.
I tried an experiment tonight... Went downtown to a local burger joint (not fast food or chain). I managed to only slightly exceed my calories for the day with a cheese burger, fries, strawberry shake. I was aware of how I was feeling when I or... Read more
I've just got a short one for today. A dear friend was telling me about a prayer group he belongs to and asked if there was anything I'd like for them to include. I've been reflecting back on world events, including the events of Sept 11, 2001 ... Read more
Kitchen experiment update
Well, the counter expansion is complete. The cats still have their dining area and I've got some more counter space to put the bread machine and a place to put groceries when I come back as I'm sorting to get them put up. The bonus today was m... Read more
Experiments in the kitchen...
Experiment No. 1 -- bizarre recipe for chocolate pudding. When I was home with mom, I found an odd recipe for chocolate pudding that I thought was worth a try. For 4 servings, it calls for 3 avocados (yep, avocados), 6 tbsp cocoa powder, 1/4 c... Read more
9/1/11: Day 60
It has been one long night and day.
In reading over my last blog, it seems I am complaining more than I meant to when I was writing it. One thing the SP community has been teaching me is look within. I cannot change how "things" have bec... Read more
8/29/11: Day 57
Spent some time reflecting on how things have changed over the years...
--portions have become larger... I can't believe I've that I'd been eating at least 3 servings of rice all at one meal. Now, I measure, but am in a state of disbelief.... Read more
