WIG Update

Monday, October 13, 2014      6 comments

First, tracking sugar is a pain. Very manual. However, I did learn where I'm getting some sugar that I didn't expect. With that in mind, when I go grocery shopping this weekend, I will look for snacks with lower levels of sugar. I'm not goin... Read more

Tracking sugar

Tuesday, October 07, 2014      6 comments

It's not as easy to track sugar as I thought it would be. There is no "Sugar" box to check on the Spark People tracker. Glucose? Yes. Sucralose? Yes. Sugar, no. Read more

The main thing I need to do to meet my WIG is to stay in my calorie range every day. There are two things I'm going to do that I don't normally do to help me do that. One, I am going to practice mindful eating. I will put my fork (or spoon) d... Read more

Friday, March 07, 2014      21 comments

There is a trend at my work - many ladies are chopping off all of their hair! And I mean short, above the ears short. Everyone who has done it looks very cute with their new, short hair. However, I don't think my face can support hair that s... Read more

Why?

People are odd. Okay, so that's not news for any of you. Today, the entire family went to the gym after work. That is a busy period for my gym (as I'm sure it is in most gyms) and one of the three ellipticals I like is broken. DD got o... Read more

My daughter is a carb-a-tarian. She doesn't like most meats. She doesn't believe in vegetables. She subsists on carbs - bread, pasta, oh...and cheese. She does eat spinach salads (spinach is a leaf, not a vegetable). And she will eat pineap... Read more

Here is what I'm going to do...

Wednesday, January 01, 2014      12 comments

Okay, so it's January 1st. Time to look at the year past and make plans for the new year just started. I don't like the idea of resolutions, at least not for me. They seem too easy to put aside after a couple of weeks. So, instead, I have so... Read more
