I wore a size 10 and still thought I was fat

Wednesday, June 24, 2015      3 comments

For about 7 years, I lived in an area where women did not wear jeans. I know. Hard to believe that an article of clothing was scorned. I adapted and packed away my favorite pair and gave the others away. Didn't think about them for a long ti... Read more

Day 1 of 8 cups of water

Sunday, August 17, 2014      3 comments

I rarely drink much water and after a couple years of seeing the recommendation, I decided to work on this yesterday. Perfect day to do so as I had a lot of indoor activities and wouldn't be distracted. Basically I lined up 4 tumblers ... Read more

I just realized I have the technology to do my own exercise video

No ... they won't be shared. My wrists gave up the good fight a long time ago. I stopped enjoying yoga classes because so many of them include too many downward dogs -- a painful pose for me. I always do better with a voice telling ... Read more

What a stubborn notch!

Monday, July 28, 2014      1 comments

A couple weeks ago, I blogged that I was approaching the 150 pound notch on the scale in the fitness center. The following week my weight went up. Entirely my fault. Last week was a good week and as I stepped on the scale this morning, ... Read more

Hurry up and wait! The perfect snack disaster for me

Tuesday, July 22, 2014      2 comments

This summer has shown me a snack pattern I didn't realize I had. I'm a project manager by craft, so I spend a lot of time with a task list making sure the next person/company/event is ready to go. I'm dealing with an unplanned project righ... Read more

I got news this morning that someone who had caused a traumatic event in 1963 dropped dead from an aneurysm. I hope that most of their negative power over me left years ago (therapy does do miracles), but everyone once in awhile when I lo... Read more

Molly Shannon's Mom (Sally O'Malley) knew the truth -- you gotta move

Sunday, July 13, 2014      2 comments

When Molly Shannon was on Saturday Night Live, she had a recurring skit inspired by her own mother. Its byline was "I'm Sally O'Malley and I'm 50 years old and I like to kick." My daughter began calling me Sally because I had recently bega... Read more

So very close to the 100 pound notch!!!!

Monday, June 30, 2014      6 comments

I try to weigh myself weekly at the fitness center. They've got one of those scales where you first slide a weight to the 50 pound notch that's closest without going over your weight (sounds like The Price is Right). Today I discovered tha... Read more

Breaking through inertia. What do I need to do today; what do I want to do today

Saturday, June 28, 2014      2 comments

I'm sitting here dithering and have already wasted an hour on FB. I'm in a putting off mode and very glad donuts are not in the house. I'd be adding wasted calories to wasted time. Some of the things I want to do today involve making phon... Read more

I'm on auto pilot this week

Friday, June 27, 2014      3 comments

So I've been living with a bunch of unpack moving boxes, awaiting painters and bathroom handyman. They finally arrived and I'm very relieved. So I'm on auto pilot as far as fitness and eating. Frozen soups, hard boiled eggs, and yog... Read more

When it's time to move onto the next contractor

Monday, June 16, 2014      2 comments

Sometimes I think getting a recommendation from a friend for a contractor binds you to a relationship you wish you hadn't started. I'm living with at least 150 packed boxes, minimal clothing, a mattress and box springs, a folding table and ... Read more

I found my Hot Pot!

Saturday, June 14, 2014      2 comments

Just moved recently and still waiting for the painters, so I'm keeping my stuff in boxes until the place is painted. I couldn't find my hot pot until yesterday. The label was too small to read. (You know when you're packing things, you think ... Read more

I'm addicted to Trader Joe's Fruit Frenzy bars

Friday, June 13, 2014      0 comments

At only 100+ calories, they're not too bad for most folks, but the sugar level in them isn't appropriate for my Type 2. I'm not living in air conditioning all the time right now. Until a month ago, I was getting into a garaged car to drive... Read more

Once again, another tale of taking advantage of vulnerable folks

Friday, June 06, 2014      3 comments

I ran into someone last evening whose child is an adult, living on their own, with a job, paying rent and a good member of society. But ... the money they make is gone ... given to people on facebook who befriended them and asked for money.... Read more

Words of support from unexpected source lifted my spirits so much

Tuesday, June 03, 2014      3 comments

I had made a tough decision that gladdened some folks and deeply hurt another person. It's been about a month. Last evening I received an email from someone I will likely never cross paths with again and who is friends with the person I hu... Read more
