Set a goal, accomplished a goal!

Thursday, May 26, 2011      1 comments

I set a goal last weekend of focusing on vegetables this week. I had noticed last week an overabundance of carbs in my diet and not enough fruits and veggies. So I shopped on Sunday, and brought home broccoli, squash, red bell pepper, onion, su... Read more

WW v. Sparkpeople

Sunday, May 22, 2011      2 comments

I've been on Weight Watchers since the first of February and have lost an average of about a half-pound a week. Agonizingly slow! I only had a couple of weeks when I gained, and a few weeks when there was no change. I like the program a lot, bu... Read more

Stage 2 Challenges

Wednesday, August 11, 2010      1 comments

Moved into Stage 2 today but today will have its challenges. I'm having both lunch and dinner in restaurants so I'll have to remember all the goals of the stage, particularly portion control! Lunch is in a Cajun restaurant -- I can get a salad f... Read more

Hello again

Tuesday, August 03, 2010      1 comments

So obviously I haven't been around for a while. No excuses. Well, I have excuses but I'm not going to waste any time repeating them. I' m just going to say I'm here now. One day at a time. That's what I can do.... Read more

OK, I'm back

Sunday, December 20, 2009      1 comments

It seems I can't obsess about more than one thing at a time. So now I'm on Christmas break from school and I can get back to SP. School and working fulltime takes so much of my time and energy it's hard to squeeze anything else in! I haven't b... Read more

Feeling ill today

Tuesday, August 18, 2009      1 comments

Came home from work early. Tossed and turned all night and finally took some pain med, which I never do. I've slept all afternoon. Don't know what's wrong. It's not my stomach, but perhaps a cold is coming on.... Read more

A lazy rainy day

Sunday, August 16, 2009      2 comments

I'm cooking a variation of Crockpot Salsa Chicken. I put chicken thighs in the crockpot. Then I mixed up a can of cream of chicken soup, a jar of mild salsa, and a drained can of black beans. We'll have it with rice, and I'm sure it will make ... Read more

emoticon FSU allowed me to submit a very late application and so I will be able to take a class or two this fall,... Read more

One step at a time

Wednesday, August 12, 2009      0 comments

I met with my professor/advisor today and he thinks I will be able to take classes in the fall. Fall meaning two weeks from now. I will find out more tomorrow. I am getting very excited, only a few trepidations. And I can stomp down those... Read more

Big Decision

Monday, August 10, 2009      3 comments

I think I have decided to go back to school -- again. For the past 2 and a half years I've been getting my master's and I loved school. Even though I worked full time the whole time, I love it. I love the mental stimulation, the challenge, the l... Read more

Trying not to beat myself up -- again!

Sunday, August 09, 2009      2 comments

Frequently, I wake up at 3 or 4 a.m. with negative feelings about something. Just some kind of stuff going through my head and I can't get back to sleep for a while. This morning it had to do with how lazy I am, what a mess my house is, how I h... Read more

Recovery from work

Saturday, August 01, 2009      2 comments

Ergghhh. I had a stressful work week, full of drama, suspense, surprise and let-down. Today I am recovering by cooking and being domestic. Still in my jammies, I've cooked the sausage and the vegetable mixture for a spinach-sausage lasagna that... Read more

A good Sunday

Sunday, July 19, 2009      0 comments

I've had a pretty good day today. Made hummus and mini-frittatas from the SP recipes. Washed the kitchen rugs. Did a 30-minute Walk and Kick video from the walkathome.com website. I might do another one in a while. I exercised yesterday, too..... Read more

Off the wagon/on the wagon

Sunday, July 12, 2009      0 comments

Didn't do well this week as far as exercise. I continue to have this dilemma of time. I leave my house at 7:30 a.m. and don't get home until after 6 usually. If I have to stop at the store or some other errand, it's even later. I do walk or g... Read more

Tuesday

I didn't exercise today but it was a good day anyway. I've been cleaning my office this week, throwing stuff out, organizing files. Decided to come straight home and make leek soup. If I had exercised, it would be 8 p.m. before I got home. That... Read more
