Lean Habits

Saturday, September 19, 2015      0 comments

So, I wanted chips last night real bad... And unfortunately, there are some in the house. Picked up the bag, and then yelled, "No." (I was home alone, or my husband would have wondered what was going on in the kitchen.) Read more

Bye bye 2013, hello 2014

Tuesday, December 31, 2013      2 comments

I always look forward to a new year--new start, new possibilities. I have loads of resolutions, some just fun (play my violin more, write for fun more), some serious (lose weight, exercise). I'm trying to find some creative resolutions as well--... Read more

Wardrobe crisis

Sunday, November 24, 2013      2 comments

The scene: last night, getting ready to go to a party The problem: The one dress I have that still fits has a stain on the front I hadn't noticed. What to wear? The action: Going through dozens of outfits, either they don't fit, look awful, ... Read more

Sunday, November 03, 2013      2 comments

So I keep *saying* that I'm going to get on track, but yet, somehow.... Enough. I'm not getting younger. This is never going to get easier. I am not going to get fit... Read more

Jet lag

Monday, October 28, 2013      2 comments

So the Sparkcoach is telling me to write about three accomplishments of the week. This is a great practice, of course, as I tend to focus on what I didn't do right, as oppo... Read more

Fakin' it...

Friday, September 13, 2013      4 comments

It's time to rededicate myself to this pursuit of health. I've been sloppy, not feeling it, easily talked out of good habits, etc. lately. It must come to an end. Now. Not Monday. Not when it's more convenient. Now. Okay, time to get... Read more

Fitbit Zip vs. Nike Fuel Band

Monday, November 26, 2012      6 comments

Being one of those gadget crazy types, I've bought both the fitbit and the Nike Fuel Band. How do they stack up? I compared results today, as I wore both and wore them for exactly the same amount of time. My fitbit was on my belt. The ... Read more

Another Year Already? Resolutions. Or not.

Wednesday, December 22, 2010      6 comments

With so many 'Jan. 1s' behind me, what is going to make this one different? How will this not become just one more sputtered rocket off the launch pad, hovering for a few seconds before plummeting back to earth? It won't be. And it will be.... Read more
