You know you're a runner when . . .
. . . you stop buying clothes, but start buying running gear!
One of the things I'm working on this year is to control my spending. So I'm mostly staying out of the malls, haven't set foot in TJMaxx or Marshalls in months, recycle the catal... Read more
The cure for winter carb cravings?
I read an interesting article in this month's "Self", about why we crave carbs in the winter. Remember it wasn't that long ago that I was musing about wanting more carbs recently? Supposedly you crave more carbs because less sunshine makes serot... Read more
Healthy lifestyle means no excuses
Yesterday was not a good day. It had some good moments, but overall I'm left wondering where my bad karma came from.
I had my SNL Julia Child moment -- you know the skit where "she" cuts her hand & bleeds all over the turkey? I sliced my le... Read more
My current food obsession : tempeh casserole
Tempeh casserole from "Eat, Drink & Be Vegan". Essentially it's baked home fries wuth tempeh. Tempeh is fermented soybeans, & it looks very odd, but it's very filling & full of protein.
Makes me look forward to a savory breakfast!
I de... Read more
A larger measure of peace
I wanted to share a couple of quotes from the free "Craving God" ebook I downloaded to my kindle. These spoke to me. I'm paraphrasing a bit, since oddly enough I can't cut & paste between these apps on my iPad.
"The goal shouldn't be a smal... Read more
Indulged at the grocery store
Well, sort of. I love to try new stuff -- it's that whole kid in a candy store mentality, almost literally. So here's what I found today:
1. Long stemmed strawberries. So now I have to make chocolate dipped strawberries. I'd actually been t... Read more
It's February. Got goals?
Every year I get a calendar with enough space to write in each day. Ok, this year I got a couple of SP calendars, too. But I really like the non-SP calendar I got: The Sacred Journey. There's lots of space for daily entries, places to put affirm... Read more
While the cat's away . . .
. . . This mouse won't play!
My husband is supposed to go on a business trip soon -- although we'll see what happens with this weather. Was supposed to start out as light snow, but it's already really coming down out there.
I thought a... Read more
I can keep up!
I finally did get to do a group run, despite waking up to snow when it wasn't supposed to snow. Of course, at least some of the trails were supposed to be cleared, too and they weren't.
I had brought my Yaktrax with me, but didn't put them ... Read more
Disgusting pantry find & more ramblings
I could've titled this something else, but I know how y'all love to laugh at my peccadilloes.
So I was rooted thru the pantry for something last night, and going thru a few things. I came by this package, which was in with my seaweed packag... Read more
A week of struggling with a reward at the end
This week, which is pre-TOM, has been difficult. The usual stuff: tired, bloated, hungry. Yet I did lose weight. I can never really figure out why some weeks pre-TOM I gain, and others I lose. But here are the things I did this week:
1. Ate... Read more
I don't actually remember where I originally read about this -- I think I had read about it on a couple of sites. At the end of the year I got an offer to get a whole bunch of their training plans for $20.
The plans are in PDFs. They're sim... Read more
4 Hour Body + why soupmaking & exercise don't mix
So I've got a few more finds to share with you. One is the book "The 4 Hour Body". I never did read "The 4 hour workweek", by the same author. Despite the fact that the book is huge, it's also quite readable, and covers everything from a great b... Read more
I prayed. Then I prayed some more . . .
Not to long I downloaded "Craving God", a free ebook for the Kindle which was an abbreviated version of the book "Made to Crave".
It has 21 days of lessons on dealing with food issues thru the bible, essentially. Which might put you to slee... Read more
Organize your life
I know a few of my spark buddies are organized challenged like myself -- there are those few weirdos (no offense) that are uber-organized -- in fact, I used to be pretty organized at one time in my life -- but they seem to be the exception to th... Read more
