Revamping the plans and still succeeding!
I went into the Start page and changed my goal weight from 134 to 126 and gave myself until 1/31/2010 to reach that goal. Yep...Thanksgiving, Christmas (and all the mandatory parties) and my birthday ALL fall in that short two month timespan. ... Read more
Teenagers who want to earn money are wonderful!
My daughter gets an allowance every week. She gets it in part because she has certain chores she has to do every week and in part so she can get some practice managing money before it is vital to do it right.
That said, her "needs" are la... Read more
Started on the right foot and kept on going!
First of all, thank you to all who posted support on my blog. You are all a big part of the reason that I stayed on track today. Didn't want to come tell you that I was weak! LOL!
Went to lunch with the girls and I had Blimpie's grilled c... Read more
Time to get serious.
No, really! I have been eating and eating and eating and eating and...well, you get the idea...all week. Today I was hungry all day. Not sure why, but I was. I did eat, but had the snacks I took to work. Yogurt and Fiber One cereal, apple a... Read more
What is the problem?
I have been out of calorie range for the past five days straight. I've been out of fat range (over), fiber (under), carbs (under) and sodium (over) more than I've been in. Today I was 65 calories over by the time I finished eating dinner. Not... Read more
The drama of the teenage years
My daughter asked me a question tonight that took a little bit of deciphering. She asked "What does it mean when someone has nothing on me?" After some digging, it turns out that a boy told her that the star of the Twilight movies, Kristen som... Read more
Didn't think it was possible...
but I did it! At lunch, I made myself a sandwich and put some baked Cheetos with it. Before I ate all of the Cheetos, I was full. The odd thing...the part that I didn't think was possible...I didn't finish off the Cheetos anyway!! I actually... Read more
Got it done!
Busy Saturday for me. Work out, took the dog for shots, started laundry, finished my book, Pampered Chef party, shuttled kids to and from friends and watched my game (Boise State did some whoopin' on U of Idaho!). The best part is...I got a na... Read more
Tired of conversations...
revolving around shopping and GF eating/woes! My MIL is in town and that seems to be the only two things she wants to talk to me about. Every time she is here, she has "gotten into" some gluten somewhere and feels terrible. I feel for her, I ... Read more
Maintenance and Nutritionist
No...they're not related. They are just the things on my mind.
Yesterday I logged onto Spark People to say hi to all my friends and what did I find? A site under construction! ... Read more
Does stress mean I should eat myself into a sugar coma or...
go to the gym to beat something up and get my aggressions out? In a perfect world, I would be kicking somethings butt right now. But, I do not live in a perfect world. I left work a full hour late because I was spending time in the office of ... Read more
GF Pumpkin cake and my family adores me...
Who knew it could be so simple? LOL! So, for those of you who don't know, my son has celiac. That means he cannot have anything with gluten in it. The common sources of gluten are wheat, barley and rye, but that is not an all-inclusive list.... Read more
Girlie shopping is HORRIBLE for little boys!
Took my kids with me today for all of my errands (yeah, that's always fun!). Library, gas, ShopKo, GF Store and WinCo. ShopKo (in case you don't have one near) is a Wal-Mart type store, without the groceries and with nicer stuff and people. T... Read more
Lowest pay grade = most action items

Parent Teacher Conference - UGH!
Man...I hate these things! And I don't hate them for the reason you might think. Every time I go in to talk to my kids' teachers, they have nothing but good things to say about my kids. They are smart, dependable, responsible, well-behaved, k... Read more
