Fighting the good fight
I am battling those BLTs. Fighting the good fight. Mostly winning. I didn't take a spec of the date cake I gave DH this morning (and it's healthy, as much as anything sweet is healthy). I refrained from licking the peanut butter knife after putt... Read more
Favorite oatmeal blends
I adore oatmeal. I always have. Which is odd since I almost never had it growing up -- Mom wasn't too fond of it (altho Dad loves it).
So here are a few of my favorite blends (and a bonus or two):
1/2 cup oats
2 t... Read more
Awareness is the first step
That's what they say, anyway. That in order to solve a problem, you have to be aware that you have a problem. Of course, you also have to come up with an action plan to solve the problem, as well.
BLTs (bites, licks, & tastes) will be the d... Read more
Honing my focus & book store finds
So I blogged a little while ago about my focus jeans (aka my skinny jeans). And I've come to realize that I need to be more focused in everyday life. You see, I have this pair of jeans that is practically falling off me. I pull them on every mor... Read more
Best use for overripe bananas
We'll get to those bananas. This is the dress -- the size 6 Calvin Klein. That is the upside of being so short and being so small on top -- you can wear smaller dress sizes. D... Read more
Just in time for the Olympics . . .
. . . a blast from the past. I went ice skating today! Now, for some of you who've lived in the northeast your entire lives, this may seem a very mundane statement.
You have to remember I spent the last 17 winters living in TX. When I first... Read more
A healthy candy bar
Well, it isn't really a candy bar, but with 13 gms of sugar, it's darn close. So it falls into the treat category for me: the new Luna Protein bars.
I'd seen them on several foodie blogs, and had been keeping an eye out at the food store. A... Read more
Well, it's really true. I struggle, sometimes, with that green eye'd monster. Not so much in wanting to be someone else's height (altho a few more inches would really help with reaching for that top cabinet), but with the ease with which taller ... Read more
No, I must admit I have no Olympic dreams. Never had. But I enjoy watching others achieve their dreams, and that's part of what the Olympics are all about. Not to mention that's part of what SP is about, too.
Which got me to thinking about ... Read more
Thankful for smaller calves
Not much time today. It's my birthday week -- I'm taking a page from my sparkbuddy Slimmerjesse (whose birthday it is today, btw) and celebrating all week. Well, sort of. Chose to go to the movies again today -- went to see "The Blind Side", wh... Read more
What is your skin telling you?
Maybe you are one of the lucky ones with perfect skin no matter what your weight or what you eat. Not me.
I've been plagued with adult acne for a long time. Not terrible, but enough to make me self conscious. The big, cystic stuff that's ve... Read more
No words of wisdom for the day
Unless maybe something occurs to me. Sometimes the stream of consciousness blogs are the best, but I really don't think I have much to impart today.
Except planning will save your soul (and maybe your booty, too!).
Normally I wouldn't ... Read more
I had a salad for breakfast
No, really, I did. Well, it wasn't the ONLY thing I had for breakfast. I also had a slice of vegan broccoli quiche.
This wasn't the original plan. But my husband did decide to take a half day today and we're going to see "Avatar". Which mea... Read more
The right choices
That's what it all comes down to, isn't it? It's all about making the right choices.
First, we have to choose to show up in our own life and participate. No one can do it for you.
Next, we have to make the choice that we are worth it.... Read more
The right fit
Nope, not going on about my clothes this time.
Some things are just the right fit. Like me & my husband. I know I vent about him a lot here, but that's mainly because I don't have anyone to vent to in RL. Mostly my own fault, but even so. A... Read more
