To keep on in my positive vein, I wanted to share a few successes I've had over the last few months:
1. I have a little post-it note on my computer, with three of the things I want to happen. One of them is to paint in my office. And after ... Read more
Sweets are, without a doubt, my biggest downfall. I've come a long way from the days when I could eat an entire box of cookies in one sitting -- boy, just writing that makes me feel ill.
But I still crave sweets. Not all the time, but after... Read more
Yes, so I finally went to a WW meeting yesterday. And since the end of March, I've lost 1 pound. 1 freakin' pound!
Don't worry, it won't derail me, but it's hard to accept. I say to myself all the things I'd say to anyone else: I know my cl... Read more
It's so very easy to let those negative thoughts creep in there. And while it may seem that there's nothing wrong with thinking "I hate the way I look", it's a short jump to other negative thoughts like "this is taking too long", "I'll never be ... Read more
I miss the gym. I gave it up several years ago when I stopped working. I was very lucky that mine didn't cost that much, but with a new puppy I couldn't justify the expense, nor did I have the time.
I am motivated, though, and I do regularl... Read more
I had a nice post written about the last couple of days, and then the computer ate it. Oh well.
As I was walking around the hotel we were staying at, sometimes out of breath, it occurred to me no wonder I get out of breath: I am carrying ar... Read more
It hasn't been easy to get my bootcamp workouts in, or anywhere near my normal amount of exercise, for that fact; but I do what I can.
I had every intention of doing a bootcamp workout yesterday after we got home, but I was just too tired (... Read more
The good: I planned ahead, got a turkey sub from subway the night before, so I had my sub with me for lunch at the airport, rather than be at the mercy of the tempting but not-so-healthy airport food (we actually have some pretty good local rest... Read more
It seems that way sometimes. And other times, the universe has a way of aligning itself to help you. I was so sick Monday, but rapidly got better (crosses fingers for continued health).
Then today I log on and one of my articles is "Easy Va... Read more
Thanks everyone for the well wishes -- I feel much better today! Don't worry, I'm still trying to take it as easy as I can, but I'm so thankful that I feel better because I really do have a lot of stuff that must get done.
It was very weird... Read more
So here I even went to the lengths of posting an unflattering before photo for the Swimsuit Bootcamp. Even though I knew I'd be gone for a week during it, I'll have access to a computer some days.
But I woke up this morning feeling totally ... Read more
Well, maybe not ugly. So I joined the Swimsuit Bootcamp team, teams.sparkpeople.com/Bo otcamp , where you'll be given challenges each day & the chance to win prizes; there's a $1000 grand prize.
And part of today's chall... Read more
Not too long ago, I came across a thread on the message boards. Someone was going to the ball park, and she wanted to have nachos. She'd looked up the nutritional info, and 2 servings were about 600 - 700 calories. She'd only eaten about 400 cal... Read more
Don't want to count calories? How about counting bites? And you only have to count to 3!
So here's the deal: at each meal, try to leave just 3 bites over. Just a little bit. You'll be amazed at how a little can add up to a lot.
I tried... Read more
Got your attention, didn't I? Well, I do have a dirty little secret: it's my pantry. Or rather my whole house now, but it started with the pantry.
I must have bought some flour or something at some point that had bugs in it. I'm not sure wh... Read more
