I had lunch with a group of people at work as a potluck. I brought a loaf of the SP Banana Nut Bread (once again!). I ate small amounts of the most apporopriate things I could find at the pot luck and tried very hard to be careful. When I we... Read more

I can't believe how cold it is. I don't know if losing 40 pounds has made me feel the cold more, but I am freezing. I just want to sit in front of the fire in my snugglie and stay warm. I don't want to go out there and go to work. Oh, well, ... Read more

Monday, December 07, 2009      3 comments

I guess you do burn more calories in the cold because I did lose a pound last week. Yay me! I seem to be pretty consistent at having a 500 calorie daily deficit and that leads to a pound a week weight loss which is great for me. I think ... Read more

It was cold up in the mountains this weekend. It was 22 degrees F when we arrived Friday and 2 degrees F when we left today. Brrr. Our Vermont Castings stove kept us nice and cozy in the house when it was on but it was cold in the morning whe... Read more

I think I am finally well! 3 weeks of feeling lousy, but I'm back on track. I'm back on my daily asthma meds after several years of thinking I didn't need them. I sure don't want to go thru that again so I will follow MDs orders this time. H... Read more

Yoga Anyone?

Thursday, December 03, 2009      4 comments

I've been wanting to try some yoga to see if it will help my back a little and maybe help me sleep more than 6 hours a night (or less). I had tried it a few months ago and found it a little challenging, but I thought I'd give it another try. I... Read more

Cereal Fun

I'm having fun with food! Yesterday at lunch it was too cold to walk around the park so I went to the grocery store. I was looking for ground flaxseed to sprinkle on my cereal and oatmeal, but Safeway didn't have it so I went to the local natu... Read more

Last night when I got into bed, after a very good nutritional and calorie day, I began to crave...... Oh, I wanted some almonds, or some wheat bread with hummus, or even a big bowl of bran cereal with 1% milk. I just wanted something good.... ... Read more

I got thru Thanksgiving well. My asthma is almost back to normal. I got back into my strength training on Friday and my DH did it with me up at the cabin! I walked at least once every day although I couldn't walk my usual distance at altitude... Read more

Well, the 3 pounds I lost while I was sick are still off! I've lost 40 pounds! I don't have an increased appetite with the prednisone and hopefully I can work all day today without having to come home because of the coughing. I am going to do... Read more

Slow and Easy Does It

I am really progressing! I am down 40 as of today. I reset my goal for another 20 pounds. Slow and easy does it. I was a little taken aback that my calorie goal went down to 1280 for the low point. I have NEVER eaten that little in a day ev... Read more
