A disappointing anniversary

Wednesday, May 13, 2009      11 comments

On May 15, 2008, I wrote a blog here (my first, I think) about how thrilled I was with the 40 pounds I lost. And so much ahead of schedule. Well, here it is a year later, and I have only lost about 4 additional pounds. This is after gaining b... Read more

What is your biggest fitness accomplishment so far?

Tuesday, April 28, 2009      5 comments

I know this was actually last week's blog prompt, but I never answered it. Like so many others on Spark, exercise was never a big part of my life. As a child, I discovered that I did very well in school. When I was in first grade, I was ... Read more

Yankee Stadium - Part 2

Thursday, April 23, 2009      5 comments

Ok, I've been giving this one a lot of thought. Anyone who follows baseball knows that this was a Yankee loss of historic proportions (22-4, including a 14 run second inning). Maybe it is best if I don't dwell on the game or the Yankees at th... Read more

Yankee Stadium

Thursday, April 16, 2009      8 comments

We are going to the new stadium on Saturday!!! Late afternoon game, supposed to be in the 70s, should be great. Let's just hope they don't get pounded like they did today. ... Read more

Sick Day

Saturday, April 11, 2009      4 comments

I was sick all day today. I developed a headache shortly after I woke up. I would say a migraine, but I don't think it was quite as bad as a migraine. But similar in certain ways. This has happened before but not too often. The last one I r... Read more

Some Little Slip-Ups

Saturday, April 04, 2009      8 comments

I have definitely slipped up and had more sugar this week than I would have liked. This was in part because of the death of a cousin (DH's cousin, actually). It sent me into a bit of a tailspin. I slipped up at the repast and did not turn awa... Read more

My Sugar Battles

Sunday, March 29, 2009      10 comments

Without going into a lot of detail, they have actually been pretty good. I've made a lot of progress in the last month or two as far as fighting my sugar demons is concerned. I've drastically reduced my intake of refined sugar, and I am very p... Read more

A Non-Scale Victory

Thursday, March 26, 2009      11 comments

I have been wearing XL T-shirts ever since I can remember. Depending on the cut of my shirt and my current weight, sometimes they could be a little snug. Today in my office, they were giving out free t-shirts (some organization; I am sti... Read more

Couldn't handle the praise

Sunday, March 22, 2009      8 comments

I know it's been a little while. I have a few things i can comment on. Last Saturday, the 14th, I went to a family gathering. My cousin's (actually my husband's) son just returned from a tour of duty in Iraq. He has been in the military for ... Read more

Just to clarify

Wednesday, March 11, 2009      5 comments

When I talk about giving up sugar, I am only talking about refined sugars, which includes HFCS of course. I am NOT talking about fruit. I love fruit and I think it is very good for you!!! It is beside the point that today I was not very good ... Read more

What is my biggest healthy eating accomplishment so far?

Tuesday, March 10, 2009      4 comments

I just answered this question on the Daily Spark. I LOVE edamame!!! A year ago, I never even heard of it. Now it is one of my real favorites. Give me shelled edamame, and I am a very happy woman. Fortunately, it is frequently on the salad b... Read more

It's Deja Vu all Over Again

Sunday, March 01, 2009      6 comments

The above is a quote from Yogi Berra, though he may not have really said it. The significance here is that I experienced a sense of deja vu when I was in California last week. We were at a Polo Ralph Lauren outlet, and that is where I was when... Read more

Lost my internet (temporarily)

Friday, February 27, 2009      3 comments

My participation here is likely to be erratic until Sunday. As luck would have it, that is March 1, so I can start off with the new month. We got home from California, and almost immediately, we started having problems with our internet. ... Read more

I'm Back - in more ways than one

Wednesday, February 25, 2009      4 comments

We touched down at JFK Airport at 4:45 am on Monday morning, which is 1:45 am Pacific time. The trip was really good. I had a great time with my son, David. The short reprieve from the cold weather was nice, too. As for my parents, they are... Read more

Greetings from California

Thursday, February 19, 2009      5 comments

Well, I am here, and the weather is beautiful. I am having a hard time eating normally, if you will. Part of it is the time change, and part of it is being away from my normal routine. So far I am not proud of how I am doing, but I will just ... Read more
