Today is a Better Day

Thursday, September 17, 2009      2 comments

Ok, so yesterday was downright crappy. No, scratch that. The whole day wasn't crappy, just the whole morning. The afternoon was much better, even if I didn't get any solutions to the IT problems I've been sorting through. Last night, My ... Read more

Is it PMS, or am I just having a bad day?

Wednesday, September 16, 2009      1 comments

This morning, I woke up with a major case of the sniffles, and even after an allergy pill, it took a long time to stop reaching for kleenex every 5 minutes. I also feel like I've been side-swiped by a Mack Truck. I'm achey all over. M... Read more

Something new on my walking path today

Monday, September 14, 2009      4 comments

I've been walking during my weekdays at lunchtime, and on the route I take, there's a house with a fair-sized garden, including several rows of raspberries, potatoes, carrots, beets, and a plant that I couldn't identify up until 3 weeks ago as s... Read more

I survived the Pizza situation

Sunday, September 13, 2009      0 comments

Saturday night went better than expected after supper. The kids weren't as hungry as usual, but between the 4 of us, we need more than one pizza. I made sure I didn't have as many carbs during the day, backed off the fat content, and ate more ... Read more

Stuck between a Pizza and a Pepsi Can

Friday, September 11, 2009      1 comments

Ok, the weekend's about to start, and Saturday supper is the one meal that I worry about the most. I shouldn't, but I do. Both kids are over this weekend, as usual, and since Half Brother doesn't do a lot of veggies, and the Goth StepDaughter ... Read more

I'm NOT equipped to deal with this!

Thursday, September 10, 2009      1 comments

Without giving away personal information, I can tell you that I've had several rocky moments since Monday. Bottom line, someone on my side of the family said something to one of My Guy's family members, and now all hell's broke loose. As i... Read more

Moving things along - Step 2

Wednesday, September 09, 2009      0 comments

Sometimes I wonder if I deliberately go slowly so as not to become disappointed when the oomph slows down. Today, I finally decided to try Step 2. Well, it wasn't exactly "trying", I think I've been doing it since early April. But today, ... Read more

Vacationing with Family

Tuesday, September 08, 2009      1 comments

This past weekend, I spent it with my parents on Prince Edward Island. I had my doubts that it would go so well, but now that I'm sitting here, Tuesday morning, and reflecting upon it, I had a great weekend. Food-wise, I did much better th... Read more

Of Money, Streaking and Stress

Wednesday, September 02, 2009      0 comments

Well, I think I might know what triggered the pizza binge on Saturday evening. My Guy & I have been rather stressed out at the performance of our vehicles lately, and purchasing a new or new-to-us vehicle just isn't in the budget just yet. Thi... Read more

Another step backwards

Monday, August 31, 2009      3 comments

I had thought I had come such a long way from the days of mindless eating, but apparently not. We had pizza on the weekend, and after supper, I had planned to put the leftovers in the fridge. They never made it to the fridge, especially af... Read more

Sweating like a pig

Wednesday, August 26, 2009      1 comments

So I've been doing this walking for cardio thing for over 2 years now, and it still amazes me how much I sweat on the way. It's less my armpits and back, and a lot more my head and back of neck. I mean, it's WALKING. Since when does walking m... Read more

I accomplished what I thought would be impossible

Tuesday, August 25, 2009      1 comments

We don't get to take a vacation with the kids very often, but this year, we decided to stay in New Brunswick and find a vacation spot for a day or so. Which is how My Guy came up with Hopewell Rocks. If you've never been to Hopewell Rocks,... Read more

I need music to walk!

Wednesday, August 19, 2009      2 comments

There are some things that I find especially therapeutic when walking. Playing my favourite music on the MP3 ranks among the top. It's a chance for me to unwind a little midway through my day (I go for a walk at lunchtime). It's a c... Read more

Birthday Weekend - musings

Tuesday, August 18, 2009      1 comments

This past weekend, I celebrated my birthday. I'm 29, but with over a decade's experience. :-P Actually, 29 was the year that I really started making changes in my life, including leaving a husband who was a food enabler. I was just handy... Read more

Why does my favourite band always cheer me up?

Friday, August 14, 2009      1 comments

This morning wasn't a great experience. I booked our hotel rooms for our vacation through Hotwire, and although we do smoke, and most of the hotels in that city are non-smoking, I know that some have smoking floors. Hotwire decided to give me ... Read more
