Planning Portions People Planning Since my sister told me what they were serving, I could make a game plan: 1/2 bagel & lox 3/4 cheese omelet 1 mini cheesecake (I made it, so I knew what was in it) 2 chocolate dipped strawb... Read more

Today was the second group run in my training group. What beautiful weather - finally! Just like my Austin HM. I met a woman who moved here from San Antonio about a year ago. She actually drives over an hour each way to cone to this group, becau... Read more

Good snack ideas

Friday, May 11, 2012      6 comments

This month's Fitness magazine had some snack ideas that appealed to me: 4 potstickers I LOVE potstickers! What a fabulous idea 1 cup red bell pepper slices topped with 1/2 cup retried black beans & 1 tbsp guacamole 1/2 cup gree... Read more

I gained weight & it doesn't bother me

Thursday, May 10, 2012      5 comments

Because it was only .2 lb & the heavier dress I wore alone could account for that! I ate out 2 times - 3 if you count the leftovers - starting exercising more again & it's about a week from TOM. I would really, really, really like a small l... Read more

I don't know why I'm so excited . . .

Wednesday, May 09, 2012      2 comments

. . . but it probably speaks to why I have a weight problem. The other day when I was out grocery shiopping I saw signs for frozen yogurt; I never got a closeup look at them, tho. I figured that maybe the seasonal ice cream stand down the r... Read more

I'll give it 3 weeks

Tuesday, May 08, 2012      4 comments

Because that's how long it takes to build a habit. I like 1/2 cup oatmeal (dry); it's a serving, after all. And would be fine if I didn't add dark chocolate chips & PB2. not too long ago, I actually saw a nutritionist recommend dark chocola... Read more

Ouch, that hurt!

Monday, May 07, 2012      9 comments

No, I didn't actually hurt myself - I just did some foam rolling for the first time in a very long time. Ouch! One of the nice things about being in a training group is that I don't have to think about my runs; they're already mapped out fo... Read more

Dinner & a run

Saturday, May 05, 2012      4 comments

Not together, tho. We went out for the first time in almost a month last night. We went to a local diner; too many choices! I went there planning on an omelet & hash browns, but that pretty much flew out the window when confronted with all the g... Read more

Not as much as I thought . . .

Thursday, May 03, 2012      5 comments

. . . but I'll take it. Even my husband looked at me yesterday & said "you look thinner" & this is a man who NEVER comments on my weight, which is both a good thing & a bad thing. So just a small loss today & that's for the last couple... Read more

The clothes roulette

Wednesday, May 02, 2012      4 comments

Tomorrow is my WI, but I can tell I've lost some weight. I wore a pair of jeans today that had been a bit too tight for a while. Still really just a tad tight, but much better. Then I tried on a dress I'd bought at H&M a couple of weeks ago... Read more

Maybe not my best idea

Tuesday, May 01, 2012      4 comments

So I heard about this app the other day called food spotting . . . People take photos of their meal & upload it to this site/app. And I've just spent time ogling the red velvet pancakes in las Vegas and the deli in Montreal, of all places,... Read more

Why you can't motivate to exercise

Monday, April 30, 2012      6 comments

I read something this morning that really resonated with me: don't exercise to lose weight or to fight your body. Do it to make your body healthy and strong and because it makes you feel good. Truer words never spoken. This is why I don't n... Read more

A glimpse into how to eat?

Thursday, April 26, 2012      5 comments

There's only one good thing about fevers for me: I lose my appetite. But I'll take DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness & no, I didn't make that up myself) over the fever muscle aches anytime. My fever broke around 6ish last night & suddenly... Read more

I don't k ow what I have, but every time I start to feel better & do a bit more I get sick again. Wondering if maybe DH picked something up in japan & reinfected me, but it doesn't really matter as the end result is I'm still sick. I feel badly ... Read more

Gone & done it

Tuesday, April 24, 2012      8 comments

Signed up for a HM training program with USAFit. I haven't even run in over 2 weeks because of this cold & the first session will be Saturday. Yikes! I'm planning an easy run/walk on the treadmill today, since the weather is still rather nasty h... Read more
