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

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
8/27/11: Day 55
Well, vacation's winding down. Daddy's home from vacation which means Mom's vacation is over.
Inspired by greatpanda, I actually went for a swim for the first time in years. It felt good! I wish I'd jumped in earlier during my vacation in... Read more
8/24/11: Day 52 and year in review
Every year on my birthday (I'm a little late this year) I look back on the past year and make so goals (or resolutions) for the upcoming year. This might be a little disorganized and all over the place, but that sums up the year pretty well.

8/20/11: Day 48
It's time for the annual year in review, but I'm tired and am going to go to sleep. Didn't get much of my to-do list done today, but did have some fun.
I'm also a bit saddened tonight. I finally figured out why I haven't heard from a real... Read more
8/18/11: Day 46
Just a quick note so I can get to bed at a reasonable time for a change...
Good day for fresh fruits; only went slightly above targets for calories (over by 9), carbs (over by 48...still need some work on this), and fiber (over by 13). Lots o... Read more
8/17/11: Day 45
Hell hath frozen--I actually was within my ranges (not over, not under) for calories, fat, carbs, and protein! That rarely seems to happen, especially when I get carb-happy.
I've been thinking of my great aunt today...it's her birthday. S... Read more
8/16/11: Day 44
I think I need to go find my book "meditations for women who do too much".... A comment Srhallin made on an earlier blog got me thinking.
My perception of me is that I'm lazy. But, taken from another perspective, it seems I'm always doing... Read more
8/15/11: part 2
The one good thing about going through old photos is you can see where you've been and how far you've come. I think this pic was when I was over 200. Yikes! No wonder I had trouble running and keeping up!

8/15/11: Day 43 and teetering
Rule #1, don't go grocery shopping when hungry. Well, I wasn't when I started. Did okay, did buy some soy ice cream sweetened with dehydrated cane syrup (close to natural, I hope; definitely more so than sugar, fructose, high fructose corn syr... Read more

8/13/11: Day 41
Still plodding along. I still can't believe I haven't given in to sweets or sodas yet! Of course, the burger and fries the other day weren't exactly a great choice. I was racing like a banshee from work to a CPR refresher a little over an hour a... Read more
