2014.2: The Fitness Reset

Wednesday, September 17, 2014      5 comments

For someone who was never athletic as a child or as a teenager, I sure do spend a lot of time doing athletic stuff as an adult. A few months ago, I was thinking about the sports/fitness stuff I do and ranked it in order of preference: 1. Golf.... Read more

2014.2: The Food Reset

Wednesday, September 17, 2014      4 comments

By now, I've tried so many different kinds of things to lose weight that I definitely know what works best for me and my annoying tendency to get very excited about a new way of eating for about two weeks before deciding it's too much work. (It'... Read more

2014.1: The background

Wednesday, September 17, 2014      6 comments

So, I keep trying this thing, and honestly I AM a little discouraged with myself for not being able to stick with it, but also encouraged because I keep trying. Anyway, I've somehow let myself get within 10 pounds of my highest weight and that i... Read more

That was then

I just re-wrote everything on my Spark page. It's been so long since I regularly visited/used SP that it seemed stupid to pretend that I've been continuously working on this for the past three years. I haven't. There are huge holes between my vi... Read more

Mixed up bag of weekend-y-ness

Monday, July 23, 2012      5 comments

I don't have to pretend that's a real word, because I put in hyphens. (That's my spellcheck rule toward adding to the English language. Incidentally, this means spellcheck isn't a real word.) What I did this weekend: - I made my bed for t... Read more

Breakin' the law, breakin' the law!

So, I have this personal rule about running in the summer. I have an 83 deg. F cutoff for acceptable running weather. If it's any hotter than that, I don't run outside. Or so I have always said. Last night, it was about 92 or so and I... Read more

Something awesome happened over the weekend. No, I didn't win the lottery or meet a great guy, or even lose weight. Nope. My scale was water damaged and doesn't work any more, so I decided to throw it away and not replace it. No more "tyranny of... Read more

Can't stop, zombies will eat me!

Tuesday, July 10, 2012      6 comments

Contains spoilers for the first mission of the running app, "Zombies, Run!' Last night I took a "run" with the Zombies, Run! app (for Android) for the first time. I have to put run in quotes because I haven't had any kind of a run since Mar... Read more

Variety may be the spice of life, but consistency is the key to weight loss

Wednesday, March 21, 2012      5 comments

I eat the same thing for breakfast every day, Monday through Friday: two whole wheat waffles with a tablespoon each of peanut butter and homemade jam, with a cup of coffee and sugar-free vanilla caramel creamer. I try to eat nearly the same thin... Read more

Apparently, Girl Scouts are like my own personal Khan. So, eating an entire box of Savvanah Smiles last night was not the absolute worst thing I have ever done, nutrit... Read more

Why you should always double check

Tuesday, January 31, 2012      4 comments

I noticed something interesting when preparing to enter my lunch foods today. I rely pretty heavily on the nutritional information that others have entered in the food search and often take it for granted that people will enter the correct info ... Read more

I crossed my second forbidden watershed weight recently. I remember when I got to my lowest weight in ten years. I said I'd never be over 200 pounds again. I also expressed how happy I was to no longer be part of the obesity epidemic. Then ... Read more

Need to figure out the eating thing again

Wednesday, July 20, 2011      2 comments

The past couple of days, I've done really well with my planned eating. I'm able to stay in bounds without too much trouble. It's what happens when I finish dinner that's the problem. I keep hitting the snack foods. Last night, I even said, "I'm ... Read more
