I survived my holiday baking
Monday, December 14, 2009      3 comments

I used to be the person to bring in desserts. I'd start baking cookies in the summer, freeze them, and then bring in a huge tin to work, and send another huge tin in with my husband. It was my thing. I don't do that any more. However, when ... Read more
Finding a healthy eating style
Friday, December 11, 2009      9 comments

It isn't easy. At least not for me. I'm the type who can't follow an eating plan to save my soul -- it's not that I can't eat healthy, it's that I have to come up with my own plan. Because food is important to me. As I wrote on a spark buddy's b... Read more
Sometimes even gaining is winning
Thursday, December 10, 2009      4 comments

Last night was my husband's office holiday party. Even tho we got somewhere around 5-6 inches of snow that morning, and DH stayed home from work, we still went. Luckily most of the food wasn't terribly exciting. I had raw veggies for appetizers,... Read more
What do you deserve?
Wednesday, December 09, 2009      6 comments

I've been thinking about this one a lot lately. What do I deserve? Do I deserve a body that's tired all the time? That won't fit into the clothes I own? Do I deserve thighs that rub together? Do I deserve a cookie because I've run? Do I des... Read more
What do winners have in common?
Tuesday, December 08, 2009      4 comments

A belief that they can, of course! Our thoughts are so powerful -- believe that you can, and you will. That doesn't mean you don't have to put in the work, but if you don't believe in yourself, I promise you, it won't happen. I've blogged a... Read more
Prepping for the hard work
Monday, December 07, 2009      6 comments

That's what Amy Bento says in one of my exercise DVDs. I shoveled a driveway for the first time in about 30 years yesterday. There wasn't even all that much snow, as it took a long time for it to stick to road surfaces, but it had iced up undern... Read more
Raw desserts rock & other ramblings
Saturday, December 05, 2009      3 comments

One of the many things I miss about Austin is the farmer's market I used regularly. It was open year-round (the joys of living in a temperate climate!, altho I must admit there's a farmer's market here that's open year-round that I need to check... Read more
Ch, ch, ch, changing
Friday, December 04, 2009      7 comments

I firmly believe that we only stop learning and growing when we're dead. Sometimes I have to feel sorry for my husband -- he's such an entrenched omnivore, and I was, too, when we got married (altho I always loved my veggies). But the changes in... Read more
She's got it going on
Thursday, December 03, 2009      4 comments

I know that's what some of my spark buddies think. If only! Sometimes it's true, maybe even most of the time, but lately I have to admit to feeling like I'm floundering. I think it's a combination of many things: 3 trips in 3 months, not enough ... Read more
My first outdoor run
Wednesday, December 02, 2009      9 comments

Which is a bit of a misnomer, because I actually got into running by doing it outdoors. I'd tried on and off, over the years, always hating running (still almost hate it), but a couple of years ago I started to do some very short intervals while... Read more
WI madness & Dec. Healthy Habits Challenge
Tuesday, December 01, 2009      5 comments

Do you have WIM (weigh-in madness)? A few symptoms might be: 1. Eating a really big meal after WI just because you don't have to WI for another week. 2. Eating a lighter meal before WI so that you'll weigh less. 3. Skipping meals ... Read more
What does a mountain lion & weight loss have in common?
Sunday, November 29, 2009      13 comments

Ok, I'm stretching this one. Yes, I think I saw a mountain lion while we were in Seattle (actually, not right in the city, obviously, but in the suburbs where my MIL & SIL live. The day before we'd taken my FIL to a nearby park to walk, and as h... Read more
Will walk for chocolate
Saturday, November 28, 2009      6 comments

Yup, that's me. We connected via the Minneapolis/St. Paul airport both ways -- a new one for me, and a very nice airport. With a Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. On the way out, we had a huge walk between gates, and walked right past it. Then I... Read more
Designated worry

I thought Martha Beck's column in "O Magazine" this month was brilliant. www.oprah.com/article/om
roblem if you missed it. Basically, we pick something to worry about so that you don't focu... Read more
Some odd photos & ramblings
Friday, November 20, 2009      2 comments

No really theme or purpose to this blog. Maybe I'll come up with one as I go; sometimes I do. First, thanks to all concerned about my health. Believe me, I'm trying to get a little rest in there. I've done some knitting this week -- not as ... Read more
