The park is faster
I finally got out for an early morning run today, around the neighborhood. Simba did vomit once yesterday, but thankfully that hasn't effected his appetite, he had another meal later & breakfast this morning & so far so good. He lined up to have... Read more
Tentative pancreatitis dx for Simba
About 10 yrs ago I had a cat who developed severe IBD, kidney disease - and shortly before we had to put her to sleep pancreatitis, too. I never had much chance to learn much about the disease as she went downhill so rapidly.
She is the rea... Read more
No hot yoga for me
I just spent almost a month's worth of groceries on the animals . . . can't really justify dropping another $100 on hot yoga.
Simba woke me up about 2 am, snuggling for a bit & then licking his lips (a sign of nausea) & jumping off the bed.... Read more
Can we talk?
Channeling a little Joan Rivers here. The short story is Simba is sick & could use some prayers. Read on for the very long story . . .
Monday night I decided since the boys seemed to be doing pretty well, I would try a different brand of c... Read more
And I didn't even have to bribe him . . .
Not actually talking about the salad here. We'll get to that.
So yesterday during my ST I felt odd - muscles really quivering & I didn't feel I was working THAT hard. I'm sort of leaning towards it being due to the Fiber 1 90 calorie bar I ... Read more
Just where do I live, anyway?
In the spring, with all the cool temps & never-ending rain, I thought I'd been transplanted to the pacific NW.
Last week, with all the heat & humidity, I thought I was back in TX.
The last 2 days, in the afternoons, we've had monsoons ... Read more
I give up
I give up having to camouflage my body
I give up feeling too tired to move 95% of the time
I give feeling like the only color I can safely wear is black
I give up feeling invisible
I give up feeling I'm not good enough just ... Read more
What I learned today
I learned it's a bad idea to plan a "big" dinner on a day when you don't have a lot of points/calories to play with, cause despite a HUGE salad for lunch that put DH's lunch of a hamburger & a hot dog to shame, I am STARVING.
Tonight we're ... Read more
The evolution of a healthy eater
Just finished one of my favorite snacks . . . plum tomatoes fresh from the farmer's market dipped in some sea salt. God, I could seriously eat the entire pint in one sitting. Considering I ran 4 1/2 miles in the steam bath we call the great outd... Read more
Back to reality
My reality, for most of my life, was that my legs are something that need to be covered up. Not my best feature.
While it's true that they aren't my best feature, I've found in the right clothes they look pretty good - not the long skirts a... Read more
Photo shoot -- NOT clothes! Misc pics
Just some miscellaneous photos to share . . . nothing really weight related!
First off, the weird. Anyone have any idea what this might be? I found it growing in our backyard. I won't say what it reminds me of.

A lovely salad to share
I often have to make 2 dinners in the summer - one for DH, who won't eat salads & one for myself, because I crave salads - especially in the summer. I swear that msn will die soon because of his eating habits & lack of exercise, which will make ... Read more
One ingredient challenge
So I read something today that struck a chord: that the best fat burning foods have one ingredient. IOW, whole foods.
It's not like I don't already know that, even if at times I fight against it, but somehow that article struck a chord. My ... Read more
Yesterday was a lovely day, starting off with my long run and farmer's market visit. Our initial plan was to go out for sushi, but I decided we would drop off stuff at Goodwill and then go to an Italian restaurant I'd wanted to try for a long ti... Read more
Thank God for NSVs!
I woke up feeling thinner this morning. Maybe it was just a full night's sleep after a couple of restless nights, but my collarbones seemed a bit more prominent, but who knows?
Loving running before hitting the farmer's market (which is in ... Read more
