5 2012 NSVs
This week's WW meeting got me thinking about non-weight related goals for the new year. Cause let's face it: my scale doesn't always show me what I want to see - but often there are victories that have nothing to do with the scale.

Where there's a will, there's a way
No, I'm not talking about will power. I started to think about my nephew saying that he couldn't run 13.1 miles. About my sister, the athlete, saying that trying to run once was one times too many for her. About my mom saying she could never run... Read more
The way my day was supposed to go . . .
I was going to post another almost clean-eating day blog, since people seem interested in what I'm eating.
So the day started off just fine:
1 cup cooked oatmeal + 1 tbsp dark chocolate chips
And then it veered... Read more
NSV: a time for everything
Eating healthy doesn't mean you have to give up all the foods you love - but you will have to give up some of them, some of the time.
Yesterday we met my parents & my sister & her kids for lunch. But let's back up just a bit first . . . I'v... Read more
Still fighting the good fight
Just been busy!
Despite waking up & not feeling that hot Sunday morning - mild sore throat - I headed out for my long run at the park. There is a new trail I'd like to try out, but I knew there'd be people at the park despite the holiday.

How special do you want it to be?
As I mentioned last week, I picked 2 days this past week & really concentrated on clean eating. The scale was nice to me this week, too.
This morning, however, I noticed something interesting. I had my reese's cup oatmeal: 2/3 cup cooked oa... Read more
All it takes is ONE good choice
I don't care how off track you are, you are only one good choice from getting back on track. One choice isn't that hard, is it? But once you make that one good choice, you want to make more. You feel good about yourself; you feel empowered.

They say there's no such thing as a bad run
A run with a group. All-you-can-eat sushi. What could be bad? Well, that's what I thought, anyway.
In the end, it wasn't all bad & I definitely had several guardian angels looking out for me. The first was when the accident was on the other... Read more
It's NEVER too late to change your course
Maybe you feel like you've been a bit off course lately. Remember: YOU have the power. You CAN change your course. It is NEVER too late.
I ran my own business for 13 yrs.
I started to lose weight again around age 47.
I ran my firs... Read more
A day of almost clean-eating
I was going to title this "Thank God it was a really good apple" because I needed something sweet after dinner and it WAS a really good apple. Only I was still hungry. I could've had a second apple - I've done that - but I didn't do it last nigh... Read more
You have the power!
Maybe you feel stuck. Maybe you feel helpless. Maybe you feel powerless. You're just doomed to be fat, right? So why even fight it? It's too hard.
You have the power. It's inside of you: it's the power of belief. Belief in yourself, belief ... Read more
Try something new - you might like it!
Here's what I tried today:
American flatbread vegan harvest pizza. It doesn't get points for looks, and let's face it, even Daiya doesn't hold a candle to real cheese - but it was quite good! The portion was fairly generous & I had a very ... Read more
We always want what we can't have & ramblings
How many times have you longed for a break from your routine? And the bam! You get it: you're sick and can barely move a finger. And then you long to be exercising!
Yup, came down with some mild flu-like symptoms this weekend & have become ... Read more
Touristy Vegas in pictures
DH likes to say that Vegas is Disney for adults. I willingly suspend my disbelief, and so I enjoy it. I'd never been until the mid to late 90s, but oddly enough, outside of NYC, Vegas is my most visited US city. Life can be strange.
All the... Read more
Last day in Vegas: another food blog
So somehow I'd gotten into my mind that walking to fashion show mall would be a good idea. Only first I needed lunch. I always wanted to try out witchcraft, a sandwich place by Tom Colicchio of Top Chef fame, so I headed over to the MGM.
