Don't you hate it when . . .

Thursday, May 31, 2012      4 comments

. . . you know you could've been better, you were a bit loosey goosey here & there, but you really weren't terrible - and the scale was really mean to you? So, time to batten down the hatches. Too many goals that to be met. So stop with tb... Read more

Weight loss is like Everyword

Wednesday, May 30, 2012      5 comments

Everyword is a word game I play on my kindle. You are given letters you make words out of & you must get the longest word (or 2 or 3) before you can move on to the next level - or you can choose to forfeit & start a new game. There are 10 levels... Read more

There's almost always something you can do

Tuesday, May 29, 2012      6 comments

My tennis elbow has flared up. Big time. Like it hurts to lift a glass of water. It rarely really bothers me these days & hasn't been this bad in over a decade. Maybe too many triceps dips while getting back into exercising after being sick. ... Read more

GSF & yogurt run

Friday, May 25, 2012      1 comments

I ran for yogurt yesterday. It was a little disappointing - not the yogurt itself, but the self serve aspect. There are 2 size cups - naturally I chose the smaller one, but it was still large. You serve yourself, they weigh it & you pay by the o... Read more

Into the danger zone

Thursday, May 24, 2012      1 comments

As often happens, being sick turned out to be a blessing in disguise - it pointed me in the right direction. The scale has been kind lately. Of course, back in December, with the newest WW plan unveiled, the scale was kind too . . . until it was... Read more

What's different THIS time?

Wednesday, May 23, 2012      4 comments

Sometimes I'm afraid to hope. There, I admitted it. I've been down this road so many times before. I've spent tbe last 3 yrs getting down to a certain weight & then bouncing right back up 4-5 pounds. And it's not my first time at the rodeo ... Read more

Sometimes you choose to wear clothes even tho you know they're really not quite flattering to you -- because yes, they're comfortable. Not sloppy comfortable, just not-quit... Read more

Weight loss isn't about food

Monday, May 21, 2012      8 comments

Not really. Sure, you've got to eat less, move more, eat more freggies . . . yadda yadda. Most of us know this stuff, but we still struggle. Why? Because when all is said & done, weight loss is really about self love. About loving ours... Read more

Sunday, May 20, 2012      2 comments

No, my day yesterday wasn't very eventful; I have a lot of events in the next quarter that will motivate me to stay on my healthy journey. I'm very excited by the next one: DH has a conference to go to in VA in a month (just found out about... Read more

Raising the bar & downsizing

Saturday, May 19, 2012      7 comments

Those who've read my blog for a while may have realized my weakness for nutrition bars: it's notthst I actually eat a lot of them - maybe 2-3 a week, maybe less some weeks - but I feel compelled to try them all! The ones I consider at least semi... Read more

Practicing gratitude & another great book

Friday, May 18, 2012      7 comments

So this morning I decided to practice the STOP method, but I added in my own little twist: I stopped every 3 bites & thought about something I was grateful for. I must say I felt pretty full by the end! I got The Joy Fit Club out of the lib... Read more

Slow down, you chew too fast!

Thursday, May 17, 2012      12 comments

I am not a fast eater; I'm a fairly mindful eater . . . and yet . . . yeah, I find myself shoveling in food sometimes. The kindle top 100 free books are a treasure trove of weight loss info . . . if you keep looking. The latest book I'm goi... Read more

Optical illusion

Wednesday, May 16, 2012      3 comments

There is a side benefit to reducing tbe size of my oatmeal serving: it makes the serving size of tbe dark chocolate chips (1 tbsp) seem much larger, as well as the PB serving (2 tsp). Of course I'd like the full 1/2 cup serving, but since it's a... Read more

Writer's block

Tuesday, May 15, 2012      3 comments

Don't really have a whole lot to say today . . . kind of like the trouble I'm having motivating this afternoon. All sorts of things to do, yet nothing getting done. It's been pouring most of the day; got my run in on tbe treadmill this morn... Read more
