Yes, I'm still alive
I resisted Facebook for sooo long . . . But then I created a community page about my running - Chocolaterunsjudy - and because there are only so many hours in a day, I spend most of my online time there.
So let's see . . . Feb was a bad mo... Read more
You have to have faith
Weight-wise, January was a tough month. Despite my best efforts, I was up a few pounds by the end of the year & in an uncomfortable place. Boggles my mind that I used to carry 30 lbs more around.
So I buckled down in January. And the scale.... Read more
I'm a little challenged
As in I think I signed up for too many challenges at the beginning of the year!
A challenge is a good thing. We should always be challenged.
But you shouldn't be chall... Read more
At least I know why
As I wrote in my last blog entry, that was just so unlike me. The fact that that stuff had been in the freezer 2 years is a pretty good clue!
Turns out I was getting TOM just 2 weeks after the last one. In hindsight, I had all the symptoms,... Read more
I was just trying to clean up
So there I was gong through my freezer. Checking out just what IS in those foil wrapped packages. I'm not quite sure what was in one - 3 pieces of some sort of chocolate pie (I think it was vegan chocolate pumpkin pie... Read more
Are you in a food rut?
I'm not, but I was for a while. So easy to fall back on the tried & true. Which is completely ironic as I'm a cookbook junkie.
Do you set goals? Daily, weekly, monthly?
I try. I'm pretty good about weekly & monthly; daily is kind off h... Read more
What do YOU do when you're frustrated?
Frustrated with the weather. Frustrated with insomnia. And yes, frustrated with my weight.
Well, the first thing I did was find something I WASN'T frustrated with & today that's my naturally curly hair. I just looked in the mirror & the sig... Read more
How clean is your fridge?
I'm not talking about the things that are about to crawl away, although there's that.
But when you open that door, what do you see?
You should see healthy good you can grab. If all you see is processed junk or sweets, guess what you'll... Read more
WW Simple start
If you're a WW member, have you tried simple start? Similar to simply filling, which I've never really done - I like my indulgences, as they're now calling them, too much, apparently. It's WW's version of clean eating.
I did try it a few da... Read more
You can wallow or . . .
. . . you can pull yourself up by your bootstraps.
So what's a girl to do when the scale disappoints her yet again?
Put on her tighter jeans & lift some weights!
Obviously, I rant, I vent, I am not above pouting either. In the end... Read more
The good, the bad, the ugly . . . again
The good: still plugging away. Still exercising, still trying to eat healthy. Wish I could say my WIs reflect that, but more on that below.
The bad: spending a bit more than I probably should have the last month. Those end-of-the-yr sales r... Read more
This was sad
A little while ago I bought an ipad 3 from a friend who was getting an ipad air. So now I can take photos & videos on my ipad & use FaceTime (apple's answer to skype). So I got the bright idea to try it out with my brother & his family on thanks... Read more
Still slow & steady
I've blogged about this before, but it's been on my mind again. Some of the people in my WW meeting have had phenomenal success lately: big losses & they're not that far from their goals!
I haven't had big losses lately, but I have been goi... Read more
I got caught
Running errands without a snack or water, that is.
I used to carry around a little tin of almonds, but I've gotten out of the habit.
And nowadays I always bring a water bottle with me . . . I just wasn't planning to run errands after m... Read more

New favorite snack
My blogs were interrupted by the shoveling . . . so I got an ecookbook a while ago that I'm digging. One of the snack suggestions was to mix yogurt with some nut butter & crumble a protein cookie on top. I'm loving it!
I'm a volume girl, so... Read more
