Too many vegetables

Monday, November 09, 2015      2 comments

I am on a 10 week program that has some pretty specific "rules" about the food you consume. You have to have X grams of protein (etc.), with every meal, eat 6 times per day, and every meal has to include a vegetable. I have been a vegan (1... Read more

Sleep and Cheese

Friday, August 21, 2015      6 comments

Sleep. Sleeeeep. It even sounds yummy. Then why am I so resistant to going to sleep? I stay awake until 3 am reading ebooks, or watching Netflix, or being on my phone on social media. Then I wake up with a sleep deprivation headache, dizz... Read more

Facebook is Fattening

Thursday, August 20, 2015      7 comments

Working for the schools, I have excess time in the summers for all the things I should be doing to improve my health. Researching exercises, reading up on nutrition, experimenting with new recipes, exercising, streamlining healthy food shopping... Read more

counter productive blogging

Tuesday, August 11, 2015      3 comments

Sat down to blog, and the thought crossed my mind that I will continue to be on this computer all day if I don't just get up and do something physical. Lightbulb. I'll check in later! :-)... Read more

I am having difficulty pinpointing what it is that is going on inside lately. I am sticking to my game plan for food, but not for exercise. So on one hand I am feeling pretty good about my accomplishments, but on the other I am pretty disappoi... Read more

Mother Reality

Friday, January 02, 2015      1 comments

Reality is a mother. And not the nice kind that brings comfort and cookies. No, Reality is the eye-opening slap to the cheek when you see yourself looking back from a picture in which you are twice the size that you envision yourself. ... Read more

Brunch on my 'first day back'

Tuesday, July 09, 2013      1 comments

I cannot say that I have not been cognizant of my eating lately. I am fully aware of what I have been eating. I've been eating crap. And lots of it. I make these plans while I'm driving home that I will make something yummy and nutritious li... Read more

Droppin' it Low

Saturday, June 08, 2013      0 comments

When you are 230 lbs and haven't been on a bicycle in 15 years, and you start riding the stationary bike at the gym for 15-30 minutes at a time, you realize there is more than one way to interpret "feel the burn". Ouch. I believe that ... Read more

"Bikeless Cyclist," or "No, I Did Not Get a Donut".

Saturday, May 25, 2013      2 comments

I was driving into the HyVee (a grocery store) parking lot one early evening, and I saw a very large group of people gathered with their bicycles (some outfitted with saddlebags) on the huge, plush, shaded grassy side lawn next to the liquor dep... Read more

Even the pasta went green

Saturday, April 06, 2013      6 comments

There is a division within my household when it comes to food. Three years ago, I decided to try a vegan diet. After about two months, I found myself becoming dissatisfied and craving cheese and salmon. So I decided to "go pescatarian". Thre... Read more

My problem appears to be electricity

On a more serious note (and contrary to my last blog, I take the need to aid (dare I say, cure) those with Alzheimer's very seriously), I *am* starting to worry about my memory issues. I find myself borderline ADHD lately--easily-distracted fo... Read more

Yes, I KNOW I'm getting older...

What's with all the Alzheimer's ads that pop up while I'm surfing on this site? I'm starting to get a little paranoid. Are they trying to tell me something? Rude. Now what was I saying?... Read more

The job I have on Saturdays usually keeps me pretty busy, and I don't have a lot of time to go grazing for food. Unfortunately, there are those few good-hearted people who feel the need to buy or cook a treat for the Saturday "crew" and leave b... Read more

Right turn only

Saturday, February 16, 2013      3 comments

Wow. I just did a little playing with the charting features of the website, and I charted my weight over three years (Feb 2010 'til now). Those first six months I was killin' it. Lost 53 lbs. Then what happened? little ups with even smaller... Read more

donuts and water

Saturday, February 02, 2013      1 comments

Yeah, let's just say that today was not a sterling day for me in terms of will power, good choices, and staying within my calorie count. My sticky fingers are making a mess of the keyboard as I type. Jelly and custard-filled pastries... Read more
