It wasn't easy, but I did it
This blog is the culmination of the last couple of blogs.
Choices aren't always easy. If I eat what I want, I don't stay slim. Period. It can be a hard truth to accept, but it's still the truth and wishing I could eat like other people won'... Read more
It's all about the choices, take II
Excuse while I ramble. I'm not even sure I'll remember everything I want to ramble on about, but I'll give it the ole college try.
So yesterday's blog was supposed to be about turning corners, because I felt I had til I stepped on the scale... Read more
Am I insane?
Must be, because I just bought the Insanity workout DVDs off of Ebay for $76, which is about half price and a good deal and we all know I love a good deal. I think the insane part comes in with how do I fit that in with my running?
I alread... Read more
Pimp my salad
This was supposed to be yesterday's blog. Anyway, one of my daily goals last week was to put a different veggie on my salad. Surprisingly enough it was difficult to find something in the small health food store I happened to be shopping at! But ... Read more
Lola saves Chester's life (I hope)
In a roundabout way. My husband has a bad way of leaving things out that dogs shouldn't have (or cats, for that matter). He forgets how quickly they find stuff and how good they are at getting into things they shouldn't (just like toddlers, whic... Read more
It's all about the choices
People like to say that weight loss is an easy equation: you just have to take in less calories than you burn off. But if you're eating within your calorie range everyday, but all you eat is chocolate and twinkies, I'm pretty sure you're going t... Read more
The real test
We're going to go down to visit my folks tomorrow. So now for the real test -- how do I do when the vast majority of my food choices are out of my control? Always a struggle for me.
The plan is to get some pizza. I'm fine with that. I'll pr... Read more
Calling all Ipod touch users
WW meetings can be a dangerous place. A few months ago our leader bought an Ipod Touch, and she's been talking it up ever since. Yesterday she passed it around. Now I have a burning desire for one.
Actually, I've been looking around for som... Read more
A second wind. Or is that a third, or a fourth, or . . . ?
The 10 pushup rule for BLTs still rock. Still no pushups, and yes, some unplanned food -- but all tracked, all eaten mindfully. It's made me much more aware of my choices. So far.
And I got to thinking about all this last night, and thought... Read more
Building a habit
A big shout-out to DAYHIKER who suggested that when I was tempted to have a BLT without writing it down, I needed to do 10 pushups. So far it's working to deter me from any BLTs at all over the last few days. The fact that TOM is over is helping... Read more
First, I want to thank everyone who responded to yesterday's blog -- you guys rock & you guys helped! While I ate a bit more than I planned to yesterday, it was all logged and no pushups had to be done. I'm sure pushups will be done in the futur... Read more
How honest are you?
I got to thinking the other day, about the people who come to meetings and say I totally blew and then they still lose weight. I feel as tho I never totally blow it -- but all I have to do is look at food sometimes and I gain weight.
But am... Read more
Be careful in the heat
I read in Fitness magazine that hard workouts in intense heat can lower your immune system for up to 24 hours afterwards.
I've really been scratching my head on why I got sick so soon after the last time, and that might be it. Yes, my race ... Read more
Sizing up my next race
Despite the fact that I've spent much of May and June under the weather and it feels like I'll never have the energy to run again, I'm looking for my next race.
And I've found 3 potentials. In the end, it will most likely come down to DH an... Read more
The 2 Gs & race video
That's what I try to concentrate on: grains & greens. I try to make sure I get some whole grains and some greens in every day. The whole grains will fill you up. The greens are just plain healthy for you in so many ways.
I don't usually eat... Read more
