Happy April

Wednesday, April 03, 2013      6 comments

I'd been sort of slacking on my Spark commitment -- I'd been getting my login points, but not always tracking food rigorously. But I'm back with a new commitment. Happy April! Passover ended this evening, so starting tomorrow it will be eas... Read more

Weight and sense of self

Wednesday, March 20, 2013      3 comments

Just read a fascinating article from someone who had weight loss surgery and felt that since she hadn't changed her habits and thought processes, she lost her sense of self along with the weight. shine.yahoo.com/healthy-

Go weigh your food!

Wednesday, February 27, 2013      8 comments

I recently fell in love with my kitchen scale. OK, love/hate. I love that it tells me accurately how much I am eating. I hate that what I used to think was a single serving of cereal, now I know is actually 2 servings by weight! It was ver... Read more

Thankful for my Spark friends

Thursday, February 21, 2013      7 comments

I have noticed that some people on Spark make an effort to respond to every comment that's written on their blog. They'll send a goodie, or leave a comment on that user's page. I prefer to do it a different way. I try to keep track of what's goi... Read more

Me vs. Depression

Saturday, February 16, 2013      7 comments

Since I was an adult, I've spent some time on antidepressants. The first time was when I was at a point in my life where I didn't know where my career was going, where my relationship was going, where my life was going ... I fixed my career prob... Read more

Getting fitter all the time

Tuesday, February 12, 2013      6 comments

To paraphrase the Beatles: "I have to admit I'm getting fitter, a little fitter all the time!" I've been working on my Couch to 5k program (I run while listening to music on my phone, and at appropriate intervals the program tells me to run... Read more

Mentally recovering from a gain

Monday, February 11, 2013      9 comments

It's been a tough week. On Thursday I was working all day despite having the flu. I took the day off on Friday, which put me behind on the work I needed to get done by the end of the weekend. I taught all day on Saturday -- fortunately I was fee... Read more

New resolution: no more nighttime binges.

Saturday, February 09, 2013      4 comments

I found a pattern: I can be eating well all day, and then after dinner, it all goes to pot. I'll have some fruit, some microwave popcorn, some yogurt, some light ice cream, maybe a little chocolate ... I especially tend to pig out after my husba... Read more

Great way to stay under calorie range

Saturday, February 09, 2013      9 comments

Hey! I found a great way to stay well under my calorie range for the day! It's the stomach flu! I haven't actually thrown up, but I've been pretty darn nauseous for a few days now. I'm going to be teaching all day again tomorrow, so hope I ... Read more

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times

Very long day today. Got up at 6:15 to be ready to teach at 9am. When I got to my classroom I found the sweetest note waiting for me on the board: I taught from 9am-4... Read more

Just one hour/day ...

I am totally thrilled! After a 10-day vacation in Hawaii, some half-hearted journaling and exercising when I came back, and baking 2 cakes for my son's first birthday party, I finally got my rear in gear this week. I started tracking my food rel... Read more

Anatomy of two days of eating

Friday, January 25, 2013      5 comments

Yesterday I went about 700 cal over my limit. I ate a lot. One thing that happened was that I had a mini binge at night, but of course, the damage didn't start there. It happened all day long. So I decided to use my blog to go back over my food ... Read more

If a walrus can do it ...

Back on the Wagon

Monday, January 21, 2013      5 comments

We just returned from a 9-day trip to Maui. It was a wonderful trip -- my parents, my husband's mother, and my brother-in-law, his wife, and their daughter accompanied us on the trip, for a total of 9 adults and 2 babies. We swam everyday in the... Read more
