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
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
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
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
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
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
. . . 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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
