Over the years, I must have read hundreds of books about diets and -- and certainly many hundreds of cookbooks about healthy cooking.
And I swear to God, if I pick up another one that writes something along the lines of "I just started to e... Read more
That is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. The brass ring we all want to hold onto tight and never let go of.
So why is a healthy lifestyle so hard to find?
For me, a healthy lifestyle:
1. Must be sustainable.
D'oh, righ... Read more
It's been a while since a weight loss analogy occurred to me, but this one is a good one!
One of the things I love about this house is that I get to see the sunrise while eating my breakfast (at certain times of the year), and I get to see ... Read more
Well, that's what I'm working on at the moment. I love how the universe seems to send you what you need, when you need it (altho not quite sure how feeling sick works into that -- I suppose it's a sign you need to rest, no matter how hard DH pus... Read more
. . . but it will keep you from burning out -- and get you faster.
I am a slow runner. I may be a runner now, but I am slow. I have been slowly learning to run over the last couple of years:
-first on my own by simply adding some runn... Read more
Don't you just hate the heavy feeling of having eaten too much food?
Boy, today I am just exhausted and i don't know why. I've been sleeping okay. Getting in my exercise.
Granted, my husband is suffering horribly with his allergies, b... Read more
Yup, that's me in a nutshell. Hope springs eternal, as they say, and spring has sprung here (even if we are going back into the 50s in a day).
I'm not quite sure what I'm hopeful for at this week's WI. Hopeful that I haven't gained anymore ... Read more
I just finished "Possum Living", which was apparently a cult classic back in the 70s, about living frugally, essentially. One of the last paragraphs really spoke to me:
Ask yourself what you aim to be and what you should be doing. Are you l... Read more
Seriously. If you plan for it, almost ANYTHING can be part of a healthy diet.
Tonight I'd planned to make a "healthy" chocolate pudding cake. Healthy in that it doesn't have any dairy or refined sweetners or refined flour, but it still fall... Read more
So, conventional wisdom says you should focus on what you can add not your diet, not on what you can't have.
Lately I've been focusing on adding whole grains and greens, and doing pretty well with it, too. Only one problem: I continue to be... Read more
Somewhere, recently, I read that if we're having a problem, we need to ask ourselves 10 questions about it. I think it came in the tip of the day from www.peertrainer.com .
So, I've been stuck. For months. I thought I'd see... Read more
Now, I don't have the perfect body. Not by a long shot. There's still a roll around my stomach. My butt is something no one should have to look at -- it's fine encased by clothes, but a bikini? I could probably fit into one, and not look terribl... Read more
Do you realize that we are almost one quarter of the way through the year so far? So how are your goals coming along? Do you even remember that you have some goals?
Most of my goals are actually coming along nicely. Some have been forced in... Read more
. . . you probably ate too much the day before.
I haven't been real hungry the last few mornings. And I know that is directly related to my appetite running amok.
You can't face breakfast in the morning? I used to be one of those peopl... Read more
Doesn't that seem silly? But it's true. In a diet mentality, a bad meal, a bad day, or a bad week can easily spiral into totally out of control eating because we think we've blown it.
In a healthy lifestyle, we accept that we aren't perfect... Read more
