Sometimes discretion IS the better part of valor
My husband's workplace seems to be fond of potlucks. The upcoming one is a chocolate potluck. For the first time, I declined to participate. I just made 2 batches of cupcakes this weekend; today is my husband's birthday. One batch was chocolate ... Read more
A change will do you good
You will get to a point in your journey where you'll have to change things up. That may be eating a different way, adding exercise, increasing your exercise, whatever.
For me, the running is part of the change I had to make. I just can't re... Read more
Calling all yogis
I'm in the market for some yoga podcasts. I'm not actually sure yet if my phone does video. Technically, it doesn't; the media player doesn't support video. But the Web browser should -- only it has to be something on my card, not something on t... Read more
Be honest about what you eat
Little things add up -- for good AND for bad. Who, exactly, do we think we're fooling when we don't track something we eat? Like if we don't track it, we didn't eat it, right? Well, as the really old commercial says, you can't fool mother nature... Read more
What inspires you?
Well, SP of course! I know that this is part of why this time is different. I love WW, and I get inspiration there, too, but it's only once a week (don't like WW online, personally). But on SP, there is always another blog to read, another team ... Read more
Are you invisible?
I was out food shopping the other day. I normally avoid it like the plague on weekends, but I'd been too sick during the week to tackle it (and luckily we had enough food to get by on). As I'm walking back out to my car, I hear the person behind... Read more
Are you afraid of food?
I know I am sometimes. Funny, this blog has been kicking around in my head for a while, and yet yesterday's WW meeting was about this very subject, under a different title. It was about going out to eat & not being afraid to spend our WPs (somet... Read more
Fall is here & more Cape pics
First off, I want to thank everyone who has sent me goodies; they are so much appreciated. This is almost exactly the same cold I had the last time we came back from MA -- I told my husband I can't go to MA anymore. Wednesday afternoon I spiked ... Read more
Cape Cod 09
We left early Thursday for Cape Cod. Chester is a great traveler -- just lays down & goes to sleep. Lola is a different story. She was fine for half an hour, then apparently had a psychotic break & paced the rest of the way (another 3 1/2 hrs). ... Read more
I made it thru the wilderness
Probably a bit premature, considering we're going out of town tomorrow, but I really do feel that way. Another 1/2 lb and the ticker will be moving again. Yup, pretty much lost the weight I'd gained -- slowly, as always, but it's gone & I'm glad... Read more
Happy birthday, my little man
In case you landed here hoping for a cute kid story, sorry. Today is Chester's birthday.
Altho Chester is 4 today, we haven't had him quite 4 years yet. We got him at 10 ... Read more
What I did for my weekend
A year or 2 ago we talked about getting me a new cell phone, but I never did get around to it. I rarely use mine, but I was just hoping to get one with a memo function so I didn't have to waste paper with shopping lists all the time. I used to h... Read more
The Flat Belly Diet
In one of my recent trips to Target (about 3 trips in the last 3 days for various reasons, and I still need to go back!), I did have an impulse buy: "The Flat Belly Diet", from Prevention. I used to subscribe to Prevention, and still pick it up ... Read more
My new guilty pleasure
I've watched TLC's "What Not to Wear" now & again, but suddenly I seem to have become addicted to it. Maybe because we cut back on our channels a while back: we got rid of all the premium movie channels. We had a free 3 month trial when we moved... Read more
Who are you, and what did you do with my husband?
I have on more than one occasion suggested to my husband that he might want a pedometer, too. That I bet he'd be surprised by the number of steps he gets in a day. He thinks he moves around a lot -- on days he mows the lawn he certainly does, bu... Read more
