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
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'
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
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".
I believe that ... Read more
"Bikeless Cyclist," or "No, I Did Not Get a Donut".
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
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
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
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
Lunch-- it's not for sissies
Ok, for those of you with a weak, or easily-offended, constitution, look away.
Yesterday was a doozy for me.
I was eating healthfully, making good choices (or so I thought), and had a big ol' bowl of an aseptic-packaged soup I got at... Read more
DH's Master Plan
I did NOT want to work out tonight, but DH texted me he was on the way to the gym. I cannot let him regret getting that gym membership by my bailing on him, so I went. His plan to get me back into the gym consistently is working, and I think h... Read more
PF and DH
DH has accompanied me to PF 3 times this week. He has been especially motivating and supportive. Cross your fingers that this continues. If it doesn't, though, I will go on my own. I feel the need.
Although my cravings for naughty stuff... Read more
Starting the new year
I made it through the holidays gaining/losing about the same amount, so there is no remorseful, New Year's damage control to be done, thank goodness. I did, however, enter into a depressed state like one I have never experienced before this pas... Read more
