On Thursday we have a company picnic (altho it might rain). And on Saturday we're going on a food tour in Saratoga - might rain then, too, but the tour goes on rain or shine.
Not really a huge fan of picnic food. Don't like hamburgers, not ... Read more
When I mentioned that the necklaces I want as rewards are on sale & could be sold out when I earn them as rewards, one buddy suggested that I buy them now & not wear them til I've "earned" them.
To my mind, that doesn't work - for me; it mi... Read more

I know, I know, the whole reduced sugar thing. Ba... Read more
Today there was no morning yoga, because it's a rest day & tomorrow will be a long-ish run so there will be yoga later today. But since I mentioned my routine & how much I feel it benefits me both physically & spiritually, I thought i'd also sha... Read more
At least it feels that way. Altho I'm a bit fearful about today's WI. I KNOW I have done every thing in my power, but I'm still feeling bloated. Course lately it seems as tho I gain when I think I've lost & lose when I think I've gained.

A few people took a remark I made about Gywneth Paltrow the wrong way yesterday - they thought I was being rather catty & that actually wasn't my intention. Normally I wouldn't write a blog to refute comments, but I think they missed what is - t... Read more
We installed a new medicine cabinet over the weekend to go with the new vanity. We took the mirror that was there & hung it on the bathroom door. My husband complained that he doesn't lime seeing himself naked getting into & out of the shower bu... Read more
I could really feel my triceps aching last week & finally figured out that it's due to those extra 10 minute morning yoga sessions. Yes, small things really do add up!
They can add up in a bad way, too. All calories are NOT created equal, i... Read more
Started out the day with my tuna waldorf salad. Gotta love a plan cause I sure wouldn't choose that if I hadn't planned it & I'm glad that I did. Actually, I started out the day with a 10 minute yoga session followed by 10 minutes of flexibility... Read more
I had my tuna waldorf salad for breakfast, oh yes I did!
Going out for lunch with the family today & since I've decided on quesadillas for lunch, the rest of the day really needs to be spot-on nutritionally. The cats, btw, thought it was a ... Read more
So I spent some time thinking about goals, what I should focus on & what's not working for me.
What's not working:
-No definable goals. Duh! Better to make them even if you don't meet them - at least you're working towards something.

At my WW meeting today, my leader talked about being unfocused thus summer. That got my attention. I don't think I'm unfocused, but am I focusing on the right things?
I am not writing down daily, weekly, or monthly goals - and I haven't in ... Read more
That's the $64,000,000 question, right?
Much of July was spent at the higher end of the range my body has settled into & I felt every pound. I felt so bloated. My face looked so bloated - doesn't take much for my face to look bloated.

As I've noted before, I will never have 6 pack abs; I'd have to eat really, really clean to achieve that. But my abs aren't terrible & my obliques are quite good. But they all get fluffy if they aren't paid extra attention - almost every day.

DH is always angling for a deal. Usually we eat out once a week, on the weekends. He kept asking me where I wanted to eat out . . . I think he felt that food would soothe all the stress I went thru with Simba last week (who thankfully SEEMS back... Read more
