Good eats

Saturday, June 16, 2012      3 comments
skewers.html Unfortunately, I like mayo-based sauces. This was delish. I made myself a salad with hard boiled eggs & used this sauce as a dressing. The good new... Read more

Running & fashion photos

Friday, June 15, 2012      3 comments

I finally purchased my Livestrong HM photo -- yes, I waited almost 4 months -- but got 20% off. Next time I'll try to remember to take the jacket off first! Read more

It's both rewarding & frustrating

Thursday, June 14, 2012      2 comments

But mostly rewarding. Seriously, I'm not complaining. I earned my shoes - and I didn't just maintain, either. And TOM arrived this morning. So I'm definitely doing a happy dance - especially since I won't have to worry about TOM during vacation ... Read more

Whittling' down

Wednesday, June 13, 2012      2 comments

That's what I'm working on. I think I have a fairly balanced eating style going on. The main concern now is portion sizes. I noticed that I was feeling really full after adding nuts to my tuna Waldorf salad. Just 1 tbsp nuts! Not stuffed, n... Read more

What would my life be like at GW?

Tuesday, June 12, 2012      6 comments

I've been using my morning walks with the dogs to think about this question. To imagine my life at GW. The short answer is my life wouldn't be very different: *I'd maintain my weight within about 5 pounds - thus feeling thin some days ... Read more

Getting my running mojo back

Monday, June 11, 2012      10 comments

Ever since I was sick, I've really been struggling with my running. Most runs were glacial even by my low standards. And they felt HARD. And I wasn't getting my endorphin rush. I suppose being sidelined for a month will do that to you. It's... Read more

What I'm reading

Sunday, June 10, 2012      4 comments

"6 Weeks to Sexy Arms", by JJ Virgin. There was an offer to get this free minus the shipping, but I checked the library first & got it there. It's a nice little book with lots of info besides how to get great arms. I don't agree with everything ... Read more

A perfect morning & ramblings

Saturday, June 09, 2012      6 comments

Great run this morning! The map said it was 4.15 miles, but my garmin said it was 4 1/2. I ran with the woman I thought would be around my pace, but she hasn't been there for several weeks - and it worked out well for both of us - she's a bit fa... Read more

You know you've done well . . .

Friday, June 08, 2012      5 comments

. . . when you wake up hungry! Seriously, you SHOULD be hungry most mornings. If you aren't, chances are you ate too much. So what did I choose when we went out? It was almost a close encounter with an omelet, but in the end I chose a grill... Read more

OMG, what a senior moment!

Thursday, June 07, 2012      5 comments

So despite the wax earplugs, I still couldn't fall asleep until my parents finished watching tv. I'm SUCH a light sleeper. Altho sometimes DH has discussions with me when he comes to bed that I have no memory of whatsoever. The bottom line ... Read more

I think I've talked myself out of it

Wednesday, June 06, 2012      6 comments

It's unfortunate timing . . . my parents are coming up today & we plan to go out to eat tonight. Tomorrow is WI. If only they were coming up tomorrow . . . but they're not. So the restaurant we're planning to go to is sort of diner-like. I'... Read more

Numbers DO matter

Tuesday, June 05, 2012      2 comments

I have a number that I feel comfortable at. My face looks good. My rolls aren't so bothersome. My clothes fit, are comfortable & flattering. It's not my GW. It's not even a "healthy" BMI. But it's my happy number - so far, anyway... Read more

A grain free day

Monday, June 04, 2012      7 comments

Every once in a while I shoot for a low-grain or no-grain day. Notice I didn't say low-carb - we need carbs for fuel - the good carbs, like apples & sweet potatoes. So here's my menu from yesterday: Home made pumpkin protein pancake ... Read more

I needed that!

Saturday, June 02, 2012      4 comments

A long, slow run that was actually slow, that is. My fellow transplanted Texan was back today & my other faster buddy is doing a local 5k today. Ms Texan is slower thsn me & needs to walk a lot due to her asthma. She actually did end up fin... Read more

The good news about smaller portion sizes

Friday, June 01, 2012      8 comments

Is that you become used to them. Look, I'd love to be able to eat however much of healthy food I wanted & lose weight. Or eat more of the right stuff and lose weight. Doesn't work for me. Every time I have to downsize my portions I am ... Read more
