Wednesday, March 22, 2017      4 comments

What is BMF? Don't worry, the F is not for *the* F word. BMF is Barbara Made Food. And since I'm Barbara, it's food made by me. DH and I long ago came up with the acronym (initialism?). I would ask him what he wanted for dinner and his resp... Read more
A little over, but I'm okay

I was up again too late last night. I had room in my calories to get a chai tea on my way to work (needed the extra caffeine). Stayed on track the rest of the day, even when sugar called to me. However, after dinner, I found that I was ... Read more

I've been playing Scrabble with my mom since the time I could spell. My mom would help me figure out words to play and where to play, but she never let me win. The first time I beat her fair and square was AWESOME!! I'm sure I politely told h... Read more
Walked in the rain today
Sunday, March 19, 2017      4 comments

I didn't mean to, but the rain started before my walk ended. The morning was gorgeous, but I had things I had to get done before I could take the time for a walk. When I left, the skies were looking pretty black. I walked to the pharmacy, pic... Read more

Friday, March 17, 2017      3 comments

Today was the last day of the first week. I jinxed myself on the scale with my blog yesterday. BUT, the official weigh-in is tomorrow. Keeping the weigh-in on Saturday makes it more likely that I will make healthy choices on Friday. That wil... Read more

I started this plan, lose 14 pounds in 14 weeks, last Friday. Granted, I decided to do it Friday night, but that's still basically a week ago, right? A little background here...I'm one of those people who weighs myself every day. I do g... Read more

I've been getting my 6 hours per night, but just barely! Tonight, I'm going to try to be in bed a little earlier. So, in an effort to do that, this is a short blog. Mostly just streak report! (Just had to retype that...I typed "Scrap report"... Read more
Does being productive (or not) affect your mood?
Tuesday, March 14, 2017      4 comments

Today was one of those days that I waffled back and forth between being happy and feeling like I needed to cry. Part of it, I think, is that I wasn't really busy. We have projects to work on, but my role hasn't been fully defined. If I don't ... Read more

By the time I logged all of my food, my calorie count was over by 11 calories. Eleven!! I'm still counting it as being "in" calorie range today. Why?'s 11 calories! Also, a lot of what I am eating is estimated. I had half of a ba... Read more

I'm going to start out by saying I'm not a fan of DST. All of my 5:00pm meetings are now at 6:00pm. Anything later than that will also be pushed. The Asia team does not participate in DST, so our meetings get messed up. If, however, we were ... Read more

One of my favorite events of the summer is in 14 weeks. It is the annual Wing Off where there are between 45 and 60 cooks (depending on the year) cooking 45 - 60 different kinds of wings. I sample as many as I can...except the super dooper hot... Read more
Ruts are my friend!

As I mentioned before, I do so much better during the week. The routine (or rut) works for me. I can plan and pack my lunch and snacks. And I can see it's 10:00, so time for my morning snack. I like ruts!! Today, I got out of my rut. I... Read more

During the week, I am very good about planning my meals for the next day. My days are structured, so I know when I'm going to eat. When I scheduled/planned my meals today, I had 4 calories left. But, I met my match. Dinner tonight was sa... Read more
