It's getting creepy here
Friday, January 07, 2011      11 comments

Thinking back on my week, this is probably the thing that stands out the most: creeping portion sizes. It's amazing how little things can really add up -- in both a good and a bad way. I've blogged about my oatmeal + almond butter + chocola... Read more
Managing my thoughts
Thursday, January 06, 2011      7 comments

It's the toughest thing to do. I'm past the "I gained weight so I might as well just eat mindset" -- yeah, the thought will cross my mind, but I never act on it. The scale still does hold power over me. For a little while. I didn't like pu... Read more

A bad night's ramblings about routines
Tuesday, January 04, 2011      8 comments

Don't really have much to blog about today. Or so it seemed when I started this blog . . . I actually have been having very mild flu-like symptoms since New Year's Eve -- nothing terrible, just enough to make me tired & not feel like doing ... Read more
Rubbing off creates sparks
Monday, January 03, 2011      5 comments

I have long bemoaned my husband's total lack of interest in exercise and good nutrition. The common advice was to lead by example (I try) and not preach (again, I try). I'm much better at leading by example than not preaching. Anywho . . . ... Read more
What is your word?
Sunday, January 02, 2011      12 comments

I always believe that the end of a year and the beginning of a new one deserves reflection. Where you've been, where you're going, where you'd like to go. Right now I am reflecting on what I'd like to be my word this year. This is the first... Read more

2010 highlights & thoughts about 2011
Friday, December 31, 2010      9 comments

So what were the highlights of your year? Without a doubt, our trip to Kauia was at the top of the least. 10 days in paradise. Need I say more? Our trip to NYC was pretty high up there, too. A food walking tour of Greenwich Village, sh... Read more
The way Points+ should work & my inner dialog
Thursday, December 30, 2010      5 comments

So here's kind of how my inner dialog went yesterday: Me: I'm hungry. Stomach: Great! How about one of those mini clif bars? Me: Sounds good. Oh, wait a sec, let me see how many points that is now. Hmmm. 3 pts. And they really don... Read more
Are you waiting for the magic?
Wednesday, December 29, 2010      7 comments

I swear, every morning I get up, I open the blinds, and somehow I expect to see no snow. Like a foot of snow melts overnight when the temps are still below freezing. Crazy the tricks our minds play on us, right? Just like we expect our weig... Read more
The F-word
Tuesday, December 28, 2010      11 comments

As in fear. As in what still so often holds me back. I think this is definitely something I have to work on for 2011. I am definitely thinking of doing the Hangover 3 1/2 mile race on New Year's Day. I waffled back & forth for a long time. ... Read more
The rewards of hard work
Monday, December 27, 2010      9 comments

This is what we woke up to this morning. Well, of course it wasn't shoveled when I woke up. About half a foot of light, powdery snow (thank God, not the heavy stuff) and it... Read more
Baby steps . . . or dream big?
Sunday, December 26, 2010      11 comments

I read an article yesterday that actually suggested the reason a lot of people don't meet their goals is because of those baby steps -- which flies in the face of everything I believe. I know that baby steps work. It is how you train dogs (... Read more
Being present & guilt-free
Saturday, December 25, 2010      6 comments

Guilt comes in small & big packages (appropriate for today, no?). Sometimes I get stuck in a rut. I like something so much, I eat it every day. Sometimes it's even healthy! And sometimes it's mostly healthy, with a tablespoon of indulgence throw... Read more
Do you ever just want to slap someone?
Friday, December 24, 2010      9 comments

And no, I am not referring to DH this time. I have chatted up a number of members at my WW meetings. And all the ones I meet for the first time always say "you don't have any weight to lose" and I just want to slap them. I know in thei... Read more
