No, we're not talking food here. With TOM safely over, I've been eating pretty clean with the occasional treat. No, I was facing down my other nemesis: the shopping addiction. Always lured in by a deal - well almost.
I'm kind of bored by my... Read more
I am, by nature, a cautious person. You might even say a fearful person. I know it probably doesn't come across that way in this blog, but it's true.
I am often amazed when I stop and chat with neighbors and they have no clue what the forec... Read more
I am feeling much better this morning - sort of. More energy again, anyway. I tracked what I ate yesterday, even if it wasn't quite my normal day of eating (more on that later). DH is still home - more on that later, too.

While I haven't completely made up my mind about the Austin HM - it's a year away, after all! - I am a planner & of course my thoughts have already turned to it.
So am I checking out HM training plans?
Checking out HM books from the li... Read more
Whenever I run, especially when I run a race, I really question my sanity for wanting to do a HM. Running doesn't come easily to me; I'm slow, but competitive; at the end of every race - and my longest one to date is only 3 1/2 miles - I keep wo... Read more
There are many of life's little mysteries: why it so often snows on trash pickup day, or why there is a wet dog smell but no wet cat smell, for instance.
Weight, OTOH, is definitely one of life's BIG mysteries, and why I almost titled this ... Read more
Argh! My iPad ate the beginning of this post. Not cool!
So anyway, DH found a link where you can get 5 free iTunes singles for free if you use your American Express card - https://search.americane xpress.com/app/answers/dis pl... Read more
Thanks for the congrats on losing weight, but
a) it was only 1.6 lbs - which of course is still very good and
b) it's most of the 1.8 lbs I'd gained in the last couple of weeks
Not that I'm not happy; of course I am. Wish I could... Read more
Previously my fave running song was "According to you" by orinthia - I would have never heard of that song if it weren't for Dancing with the Stars, of all things. Currently it's "Firework" by Katie Perry. Both strong women with strong messages.... Read more
Seriously?! Just who have I become? Do you ever wonder that?
While the weather seriously deteriorated in the evening, as predicted, the morning was glorious: warm & sunny. I'd planned a rest day, but after walking the dogs I knew I had to g... Read more
Ah, love is in the air today. Self love, that is, I hope. Cause I think that self love is often at the root of weight problems.
So how do you plan to love yourself today?
By eating yourself into a chocolate coma or by making healthy ch... Read more
Today was my second group run. A lot of people signed up, but when I got there only 2 people were there. Two fast people - even tho the posted pace for this run is slow. Just as we were about to leave, a fourth person showed up. Thank god, cause... Read more
One of the the many attractions of my iPad is I can use it right in my living room, seated on my comfy couch that reclines. So I've got to be aware - weight loss is all about pushing yourself out of your comfort zone, not about hunkering down & ... Read more
I'd like to think that it can. Those couple of pounds I lost a couple of weeks ago? They've found me again. And despite my pretzel & chocolate foray, the truth is I've eaten pretty healthy. Still have the pretzels, as a matter of fact.
Yest... Read more
I've been going back & forth on what to do on my birthday. I was hoping to go out for sushi - weather is looking a bit iffy, but might be ok, especially since the place I want to go is close to home.
And since sushi is semi-healthy, that mi... Read more
