It's getting creepy here
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
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
You know you live a healthy lifestyle when . . .
You spend more time researching where to exercise than what to see on your vacation
You get excited by new fitness clothes, equipment, gadgets, etc.
You spend more time in the produce aisle than the candy aisle
You spend New Thank... Read more
A bad night's ramblings about routines
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
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?
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
Sober up 3 1/2 mile race recap
That's what they call it. The half marathon is the Hangover Half Marathon. Everyone starts together -- then the HMers loop around what must seem like incessantly (going bac... Read more
2010 highlights & thoughts about 2011
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
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?
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
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
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?
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
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?
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
