Babysitting Blues
Sunday, July 01, 2012      2 comments

Spent two days babysitting grandchildren: a 6 month old girl and a two year old boy. Could only eat in snatches, so felt very unsatisfied and went hog wild when I got home. The babies are darling, darling, but the babysitting stint was ove... Read more

Friday, June 29, 2012      4 comments

I tracked all my foods yesterday! I actually weighed a glass of wine. Very proud of that. The weighing make a BIG difference. It keeps me honest. But I did not weigh the pizza, so I just had to estimate it, and I probably was off. Unfo... Read more

Spark emphasizes being SPECIFIC with goals and I totally agree. I am doing 5% challenge, so what I need to do today is 20 minutes of strength training, and 30 minutes of a walk, and 8 glasses of water today. It sounds so simple, doesn't it? ... Read more

Wednesday, June 20, 2012      5 comments

I did walk in the bad weather,but it depressed me. Then the next day it was beautiful so I walked easily. Now today, my knee is starting to hurt and I wonder if I have been overdoing it. I have 500 fitness minutes this month and it fe... Read more

Another holiday means eating down the tubes
Sunday, June 17, 2012      4 comments

It is like every time we turn around, there is some other holiday, complete with over-eating. Besides the holidays there are all the family birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, etc, etc, etc. So ironic when you think about people living ... Read more

It is very hot today, and my normal thing is to have one beer, two beers. 300 calories. Instead I had 2 ounces of trail mix, but half of that was chocolate and peanut butter chips. (300 calories) Now, I am not in the mood for beer.... Read more
