Mindfulness and Company on the Journey

Tuesday, December 09, 2014      3 comments

I'm back. I've been away for months...and before that I wasn't really participating. My weight is now higher than it was the first time I started SparkPeople, and while it's not at an all time high, it's close. I'm two pounds away from the BMI... Read more

I thought plateaus happened LATER!

Friday, July 04, 2014      4 comments

For five days I have been on track with food tracking, staying within calorie range (between 1,200 and 1,500 per day) and doing modest aerobic exercise every day and strength training (to “failure”) almost every day. Result? ZERO movement on ... Read more

Day 3 on Track: Update

Wednesday, July 02, 2014      3 comments

Did 3 (count' em) days of staying on track with food (tracking and staying within limits). Have I lost an ounce? Answer: No. Darn this middle-aged-ness! Nothing for it but to continue. I've been a bit of an exercise slacker because... Read more

Stopping and Water!

Sunday, June 22, 2014      6 comments

I'm proud of myself because I stopped eating the day before yesterday. Not altogether, of course, but I'm noticing that even if I eat a lot at one point during the day and feel freaked out about it, I can just stop and let that be enough for the... Read more

Checking in, not checking out

Tuesday, June 17, 2014      3 comments

It's clear that emo stress, perceptions of overwork, being alone, and evening are the challenge times for me. When I'm feeling upset, angry, bored, stressed, and/or tired I have a tendency to reach "Stuff I Oughtn't Have." And just the f... Read more

My YES plan

Thursday, January 02, 2014      12 comments

I'm going to feel better about inhabiting my body. I'm embarking on a good health, good skin, and feel good change. As a result of these changes, I anticipate that I'm going to gently step away from the extra weight that I allowed to cre... Read more

Too busy doesn't matter

Tuesday, March 12, 2013      8 comments

It's too late tonight to write a blog, but I'm going to do it anyway. I've been too busy and too stressed out to focus on eating and least that's what I've been telling myself. I taught four classes this fall at two diffe... Read more

What does success feel like?

Saturday, December 08, 2012      6 comments

I'm reaping the karma of allowing myself to fall into poor eating choices. And the problem is that even though I don't want to keep gaining weight...I also don't seem to want to stop making the choices I've been making. I realized that... Read more

Connection between sleep and weight.

Saturday, July 21, 2012      6 comments

"Research has already shown that people who sleep less than seven hours a night tend to have a higher body mass index (BMI) than people who get more sleep. The biological mechanisms linking sleep deprivation and weight gain are numerous." h... Read more

Staying gently and solidly placed in the now?

Thursday, July 19, 2012      5 comments

I am feeling discouraged...and feeling guilty for being discouraged, which makes it worse, of course. The broken toe has morphed into some other kind of compensatory injury that has caused my left lower leg to swell up a bit and feel like... Read more

Victories and Stumbles

Tuesday, July 10, 2012      4 comments

Had a mini-meltdown yesterday. However, since I don't keep anything that even resembles junk food at my place, it was relatively healthy as far as *what* I was eating. However, *how* I was eating and *how much* I was eating were not so good. ... Read more

Doing the numbers...

Sunday, July 08, 2012      5 comments

First, what's on my mind is my TOE! I broke it two weeks ago and have been working on healing it with herbs, vitamins, acupuncture, etc. I thought it was getting better and then I made the mistake of mowing the lawn wearing a pair of muck bo... Read more

Tracking, tracking...

Tuesday, July 03, 2012      3 comments

I tracked for, count 'em, two days in a row. On day 2 (i.e., last night), I went to a little dinner gathering where it was a noshing affair and ate what I thought was WAY TOO MUCH. Partly, it's because I brought seltzer water but left in the ... Read more

Ack: Don't want to track!

Sunday, July 01, 2012      4 comments

Got on the scale this morning and am UP 3 pounds. Grrrr!!! I got a little off my exercise this week because of the toe, but still got in a couple walks and a bike rides. I'm back "in gear" because I've figured out I can ride my bike for ... Read more

Still here...even though the blog slipped!

Friday, June 29, 2012      3 comments

The broken toe and the ticket took a little steam out of me. But: I am here! I am eating out of the garden and what could be better!? I did start in with some bread and a cookie today but I STOPPED. I rode my bike today for fitne... Read more
