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
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
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
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
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
"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
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
. . . 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
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
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
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
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

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
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
