Self doubts & Self sabotage - gathering tools ahead of time!
How do you stay focused on the goals you have accomplished, as opposed to looking ahead to the very long road that is left for you to travel?
I thought about that this morning. I did my weekly weigh-in to find I have lost another pound, wh... Read more
I'm really REALLY craving some cheese pizza!! I hope that putting this phrase out there, sending it out into the universe, it'll just go away & disappear.

Oh Sweet temptations ---
Yesterday it was strawberry pie AND banana cream pie.
Today it was chips & dip in the break room, plus a birthday cake with lots of cream frosting and some kind of berry filling.
Looks delicious, SMELLS delicious ... everyone is eating... Read more
Yup! That’s right! I’m dedicating this blog to the Watermelon, which helped save my butt (literally… probably several inches of it) from what could have been a calorie infested weekend.
We had visitors over on Saturday. They were going t... Read more
High Calorie Day!
Ok, so … this is going to be a bad, bad day calorie wise.
On Fridays, I usually go out for lunch with a work colleague of mine (who is also, by the way, trying to eat better). Well, seeing as Friday is an end of the week celebration day, ... Read more
The P Word!
The P Word!
What is the P word? Hm… Pizza? Pie? Pasta? Pancakes?
Nope! It’s even WORSE...............
I’ve been resting at the same weight now for a... Read more
Beating the Urge to Splurge!
Today was a day that could very easily have gone wrong. To start off, I had a bad day yesterday. I was stuck in traffic for 3 hours (for a stretch that normally takes me about 15 minutes), and finally I rolled down the shoulder to the nearest... Read more
My only regret...
My only regret this weekend was that I blew my cheat meal on a mediocre hamburger. Other than that, it was fine.
You see, on Thursday night, my husband and I watched an episode of “How I met you Mother” where they were running around town, tr... Read more
So it's Friday. I weighed in this morning and I'm down 6lbs. For the past two weeks I've watched my calories, gone swimming several times a week ( and I mean swimming, not just splashing around in the pool on a hot summer day...), I've turned d... Read more
Denny's - Right up front!
So I came home from work and my husband and I decided to go to Denny's for dinner. We had a coupon that gave us one free entree if we buy 1 entree + 2 drinks so we decided to take them up on their offer. We hadn't been to Denny's in a very lo... Read more
Finally -- healthy weekend accomplished!
I survived the weekend! This is probably the healthiest weekend I’ve had for as long as I can remember, possibly even the healthiest weekend of my entire life. When starting SparkPeople this time around, I knew that the weekends always have bee... Read more
Everyone has an opinion
Telling people that you are on a diet, you automatically subject yourself to the opinions of everyone around you, and boy are there a lot of opinion and advice, both good and bad, on dieting. "Stop drinking milk", "Exercise 1 hour every day", "... Read more
So far so good! Calories passed up today: 500!
I know I'm only on day 3 but heck, we have to start somewhere. I feel proud that I've been able to stuff only healthy foods into my mouth for 3 days in a row, I've drank at least 8 glasses of water every day and I've counted my calories! Since... Read more
On the road again ....
For some reason, I have this song in my head on an endless loop, Willie Nelson's distinct voice singing the same song, over and over again ... "on the road again...."
I've been on this road before, but this time I'm really settling down. I... Read more
I passed up carrot cake last night.
I wanted to write a more detailed blog about it, but then I realized that going into detail about the meal and the carrot cake would not be good for me, as I would have to relive the entire sight and smel... Read more
