Sunday Lunches

Sunday, November 04, 2012      1 comments

Being a pastor's wife can come with some challenges in the "getting food on the table" category. We often don't leave church until 1 pm by the time my husband finishes talking to everyone and locking up. We live 30 min. away. We were eating o... Read more

I wonder how many calories I am really burning?

Saturday, November 03, 2012      2 comments

I'm thinking about renting a bodybugg to see how many calories I am really burning. But I'm not sure how accurate it is. I put in my weight, age and gender into a number of calculators, along with what exercise I'm doing and for how long and I... Read more

Time for November Goals

Thursday, November 01, 2012      4 comments

1. Continue to stay refined sugar free. 2. Switch to spelt instead of regular wheat and see if it makes a difference. 3. Continue to stay dairy free. 4. Continue to exercise 5 hours a week. 5. Stretch it out. 6. Bu... Read more

I did it!

Thursday, November 01, 2012      2 comments

I said "no" to sugar. I don't really like candy other than dark chocolate, so that was rather easy to say "no" to. But my daughter made chocolate chip cookies today. Those are my downfall. But I did not put a single on in my mouth. This was... Read more

Beav-a-thon!

Wednesday, October 31, 2012      0 comments

We've been watching "Leave it to Beaver" on Netflix lately. I love that show. Honestly, I don't know why everyone says that family was so perfect. They argue, get into scrapes, the parents mess up and have to apologize to the kids. . . Actual... Read more

Realigning Myself

Monday, October 29, 2012      1 comments

I wore my new athletic shoes again today. We took them on a walk at the mall. The good news is that my feet did not hurt badly today and I won't have to get new shoes again. But my poor muscles (which are very sensitive due to medical reasons) a... Read more

(Not) Wide Awake

Sunday, October 28, 2012      0 comments

It's so embarrassing. I want to be awake to talk to people or listen to a meeting but if I sit down and it's even remotely comfortable, I start to fall asleep. I've fallen asleep reading aloud to my kids. I've fallen asleep during my husband'... Read more

I Want to Cry

Saturday, October 27, 2012      2 comments

I went to New Balance and got new shoes. They had me stand on this pressure sensitive pad and could see that my heels are getting the bulk of my weight. I tried on a number of shoes. As soon as I got out of my old ones and into new ones my fe... Read more

New Shoes

Saturday, October 27, 2012      1 comments

I'm wondering if part of my ankle pain is due to my shoes. New Balance didn't have my "favorite" kind of shoe last time I shopped there months ago and I got another style. I'm going back today to buy new shoes. And possibly new inserts too. ... Read more

Oops. I blogged too soon

Friday, October 26, 2012      1 comments

I totally forgot that the zucchini bread batter that my daughter made up for an order had sugar in it. I licked the spatula before putting it in the dishwasher. I'm not worried about it at all from a caloric standpoint but from a "no sugar cha... Read more

No Sugar, Day 2

Friday, October 26, 2012      2 comments

I find myself looking for a small sugar pick-me-up right before meals when the meal isn't quite ready to go on the table. Today I added to my lunch a pre-sitting down slice of Dave's killer bread with peanut butter. A bit later I ate my salad ... Read more

So Why is Today a Better Day?

Thursday, October 25, 2012      2 comments

Yesterday was a bad pain day - one of those days when searing acid seemed to be coursing through my bones and muscles. I told my husband at night that I was willing to do anything at that moment to make it stop. But the problem is what? ... Read more

Everyone is so busy telling me what to do to lose weight

Wednesday, October 24, 2012      6 comments

One lady constantly buttonholes me at church to tell me about the Eat to Live diet. I've read the book and gone to the website. I've even used some of the recipes. But I'm not prepared to go all the way with the diet. Other people tell... Read more

Breaking in a new instructor

Tuesday, October 23, 2012      1 comments

We got a new kickboxing instructor last night. I'm not totally sure what to think. She's a huge improvement over the two subs we had. They were dangerous in their lack of knowledge. This instructor obviously has had fitness training. Her wa... Read more
