I got to thinking again about the way my Dad eats. I always thought a lot of my eating problems came from my mom, but obviously that instant gratification thing comes from his side, too.
There's always been lots of comments on how I look, b... Read more
It seems so simple, doesn't it? It's what naturally thin people do. They don't even think about it, they just naturally do it, which is part of why they're naturally thin people.
It's part of what I've been working on lately. Paying more at... Read more
This is almost another weight loss is like analogy, but that wasn't quite right.
We are experiencing the earliest fall on record, as far as I can remember, anyway. It was beginning before we left for our vacation. Fall shouldn't start in Au... Read more
Which almost has nothing to do with this post. But most people who come over are surprised by how "mellow" and obedient our dogs are. I can't tell you the number of people I've met who think chihuahuas (or any small dog) are yappy, nippy things.... Read more
That was the message in one of the daily emails I get today. What a great message! Wish I'd thought of it!
The meaning is that whenever you get off track, off plan, whatever you'd like to call it, examine what's going on instead of telling ... Read more
And I suppose it's just another notch in my "real runner" belt.
Despite the fact that I destressed after my parents left, Wednesday night DH discovered that the computer he has the MagicJack on (aka our phone) had a virus. He informed me of... Read more
I wanted to clear something up about yesterday's blog -- a lot of people seemed to think I was frustrated by my Dad's eating. Now, there are many things about my Dad that are frustrating -- and not just to me, to my DH too -- but I don't really ... Read more
Yup, that's my Dad, who once again has managed to anger & frustrate me beyond imagination in just 2 days. It is, frankly, quite mind boggling that he's made it to the ripe old age of 84. I suppose I should be grateful -- hopefully since I take m... Read more
It seems so bizarre -- something that involves wearing a bathing suit, which isn't the most pleasant thing for most of us, myself included -- does make me feel thin. That buoyant feeling of the water.
I have loved to swim since I was a very... Read more
Even if I was forced to eat sweet potato chips.
Somehow my intentions to blog fell by the wayside . . . not that we were really doing all that much most of the time, more like the Wifi would bog down at night and be really slow.
Thankf... Read more
Can I say how much I love my Ipod? Since we have free wireless in the room, I can actually blog.
Last week was a real whirlwind. I don't think I've blogged so little since I joined. I got my exercise in, ate fairly well, altho the sleep th... Read more
It's a really, really hard thing to do. Sometimes I'm really in tune with my body, and sometimes we seem to be at odds. I kind of feel like I've been at odds with it again.
Today I decided to WI but not look at the number. Sometimes they te... Read more
My spark buddy Kate wrote an interesting blog today about the things she's learning on her road to health. Check it out -- www.sparkpeople.com/mypa ge_public_journal.asp?id=K EAKMAN .
It made me think a bit about what ... Read more
We went out to dinner Saturday at an Italian restaurant DH had a coupon to. There's gotta be a coupon. Sometimes it makes me want to scream.
It's a local place, so no nutritional info. There are a lot of local Italian places; there's a larg... Read more
