Tools of the Trade: Eating right on the road
Monday, November 16, 2015      0 comments

My most popular blog post was about what I use to keep my workouts on track while I'm on the road. The thing I don't have down yet is how to keep my food on track. I don't have a lot of options for a lot of my work on the road - I don't al... Read more

I can't believe I somehow got a "featured" blog post!! The support was amazing; what an outstanding "welcome back" to weightloss! I had some good and bad times over the last week. I had an emotional blow and then it was that time of the mon... Read more

I'm jumping back into Spark People. I've been cleaning up my diet and lifestyle for the past month or so, but I find myself continuing to backslide more than I would like. So planning, tracking, and community participation is up next! My c... Read more

So this week has not been one for the record books. Neither was last week. Or the one before that. Weirdly, my weight is ok, which just goes to show you how little the scale actually reflects behaviors. My behaviors have been wildly out o... Read more

This week, I tried a couple of new recipes. Here, for your perusing pleasure, are my peramulations, which hopefully won't provoke pain, on these palatable potlaches! -------------- ... Read more

**This was totally fun to write. I do not know why. I think it's a little less PolyannaPositive than I usually am on SP, but it feels more authentic to me. Please don't take anything snarky as a negative or as about you even though you totally k... Read more

You may have noticed a status update the other day - I know some people gave me some great responses and some great, so snowboarding rocks my freaking socks off. But apparently it also rocked my ribs a bit too much - I have a small ... Read more

This is my first snowboarding run in about 6 weeks. And prior to this, I was on bunny slopes, with one really slow run down a green run in Taos. This is a bit of a green run at Homewood in Tahoe. This one is all from my point-of-view, with a bit... Read more

I kept putting this off and putting it off and putting it off. Because last week was not a stellar week in terms of diet. But there's no point in putting off the wrap up because I ate too much. I saw a sign on pinterest I liked that really cover... Read more

I'm doing well. I don't want to get to introspective right now though. Writing some of the emotional-type blog posts really take it out of me and I need my energy today. And it's not quite time for my weekly summary-of-how-things-went. So ... Read more

Recap & Planning
Sunday, January 20, 2013      3 comments

This week went pretty well for me. I had two events planned this weekend - on Friday and Saturday nights - and had no idea where we would end up for food. I don't want "Beth's Diet" to ever become something that limits a good night out (especial... Read more

So I've never actually done the "rewards for weight loss" thing in the past. The two successful 20-30lb losses over the last few years, I set rewards and then promptly forgot about them. The results were all I needed. Plus, I buy clothes when I ... Read more

Today was a GREAT day! I slept in, which sucked, and is something I want to stop doing. But I didn't let it set the tone for my day. I ate on-plan, with the exception of a beer at dinner. But I did not eat the bread on my burger (that ... Read more
