Tired & PO'd
Thursday, July 02, 2009      3 comments

That doesn't describe my mood today, but it sure describes it yesterday. DH came home early since we were going to the potluck. They'd decided to keep it at the park, instead of his place of work, even tho there was a prediction of thunders... Read more
If you do it, it will happen
Wednesday, July 01, 2009      5 comments

I'm not talking about weight loss -- well, sort of. You could interpret the title to mean if you do your baby steps, the weight will come off. And it will. What I mean is that eventually, your appetite will actually decrease. It may take a... Read more
Another NSV & rest days
Tuesday, June 30, 2009      3 comments

I have really been struggling with the whole rest day concept. Is it truly necessary? Just what does it mean? On many -- but not all -- of the rest days I've taken lately, I've still racked up 10,000 steps. I don't do any strength training or ca... Read more
A NSV & upcoming challenges
Monday, June 29, 2009      2 comments

So I'm at my WW meeting this week, chatting occasionally with the woman next to me. At the end, our leader goes around & asks who's lost, how much, and for what total (I don't really like that -- when you lose as slowly as me, it's not terribly ... Read more
A powerful pancake
Saturday, June 27, 2009      5 comments

I got this recipe from a food blog somewhere -- I don't remember which one. Maybe www.eatliverun.com Anyway, it's very filling, and even DH liked it, despite the lack of flour in it. It's more an oatcake than a pancake, or... Read more
It's all relative
Friday, June 26, 2009      5 comments

The weather around here hasn't been the greatest lately. Rain, rain, and some more rain. Mostly cool temps. I think I heard that we got rain 18 out of the last 23 days or some such. However, having suffered through 17 summers of real heat a... Read more
You can have your cake & eat it too . . .
Thursday, June 25, 2009      2 comments

. . . sometimes. I know that last week I wasn't as mindful of BLTs (bites, licks, & tastes) as I should have been. Nothing terrible, but I know I can do better -- and I know they really have a tendency to bite me in the a$$ (pun intended), ... Read more
Goals are like pricing
Wednesday, June 24, 2009      5 comments

My husband is very fond of watching all those flip my house type of shows. We were watching one this weekend, and despite 2 open houses & months on the market, not only had the house not sold, they hadn't even had an offer! Now, I hope that... Read more
Running the Sahara
Tuesday, June 23, 2009      4 comments

That's a documentary I watched while I was sick & laying on the couch all day (sort of ironic, eh?). I was sucked into it because it said Matt Damon was in it (he's the narrator) & it's about Africa, which fascinates me. It was all about 3 ... Read more
Change is possible
Monday, June 22, 2009      6 comments

People can surprise you. Even after decades, sometimes. Getting my husband to walk the dogs has always been something of a battle. He does it, but grudgingly. The sad part is that it's more for him than it is for the dogs -- I give them a g... Read more
The slowest person on earth
Friday, June 19, 2009      11 comments

Or sometimes I feel that way, anyway. It seems everyone finishes the C25K program with ease, then runs 5ks effortlessly. So why is it so difficult for me? I've been doing it rather loosely, throwing in some other running exercises in there ... Read more
Reality checks
Thursday, June 18, 2009      4 comments

One thing I've learned from the past 20 years, is that I need reality checks. I know when I'm gaining weight. Maybe not at first, but when those pants sizes start to go up, I know it. Going to WW meetings monthly doesn't cut it for me -- I need ... Read more
What is naturally thin?
Tuesday, June 16, 2009      7 comments

Besides the title of a book I highly recommend. I've been pondering the difference between being naturally thin and slipping (even had a title for that -- slip sliding away). It's so easy to let the little things pile up. I didn't WI in las... Read more
Feeling better, again
Monday, June 15, 2009      5 comments

Only this time I really am on the mend. I spiked a fever on Thursday -- funny, I was feeling better before that -- and felt totally miserable. Not much better Friday morning, but since then I've felt better every day. In fact, I did somethi... Read more
Never send a man shopping
Thursday, June 11, 2009      8 comments

I'm sure there are men out there who can go food shopping and come back with healthy stuff -- there must be some here on SP -- but I don't personally know any. Besides the kvetching that ensues, I almost never have DH pick anything up for m... Read more
