Thank God for BHT & artificial colors!
I am not overly fond of food shopping. There is one store in the area that delivers -- but then I would miss the one redeeming benefit of food shopping -- to my mind, anyway -- beyond the obvious benefit of having something to eat in the house: ... Read more
VA Beach & Valley Forge
Before we get to the photos, baby it's hot! Austin hot. Seriously. Sat's group run was canceled due to thunderstorms (altho I got it done - in the rain). Last night's track workout was canceled due to heat - like 90 at 7 pm. I did mine on the tr... Read more
It's ok to take a break - just not a sabbatical!
I was thinking about this as I was cleaning the kitchen this morning. My routine is to clean it while the cats eat. I have to keep an eye on them because simba can be finicky & may need a sprinkle of treats.
I hadn't been cleaning tbe kitch... Read more
Yoga in a dress? Why not?
This morning was H3: hazy, hot & humid. I woke up too late to do a very early morning run. So I did something I don't do too often in the summer: ran before I walked tbe dogs. I knew i didn't want to run later . . . I also knew I could get the r... Read more
Turning a blind eye
Isn't it funny how we can see others' faults in bright technicolor, but turn a blind eye to the same faults in ourselves?
I watched DH do little more than sit around watching tv when we got back home & he had several days off - and listened... Read more
Be your own cheerleader
Do cheerleaders throw down their pom poms when their team is losing? Of course not! They're there to support their teams & elicit support from the audience - not that I was ever a cheerleader or involved in organized sports, mind you, aside from... Read more
Advice needed & yet another fashion shoot (long)
In just a bit over 3 weeks I have a wedding to go to. On a Saturday. My long runs are normally on Saturdays. It's an evening wedding, so it is doable. However, the ceremony doesn't start until 7 pm and if it's anything like his sister's wedding,... Read more
They're really more like guidelines . . .
. . . but they work! Plans, that is.
My plan yesterday was a snack of air popped popcorn after dinner. It was a no dessert day (I do that every 3 days or so). But I was sooooo hungry by 2 pm . . . drank a couple of glasses of water but it d... Read more
Thank God they fixed that!
I am really, really tired - I'm guessing it's the preTOM dip in hormones, because for a change I've been sleeping pretty well. I do most of my library stuff online & all of the sudden it was throwing weird error messages at me when I tried to re... Read more
Where can you cut corners?
When you start a heathy lifestyle, you should concentrate on what healthy foods you can add, rather than what you can't have. If you're like me, tho, near GW but seemingly unable to reach it, it might be time to look at what you need to cut out.... Read more
I can't believe I finally did it!
A moment 20 yrs in the making . . . I wnt on a 10 day vacation & came home lighter than I left! Almost 1/2 lb lighter! Yes, I'm giddy! Because I always gain on vacation. ALWAYS. And I track, I exercise, I never go hog-wild. AND it's a week befor... Read more
Habit or hunger?
I noticed while I was away that I have successfully replaced a sweet with fruit after lunch. My only problem was when I didn't have fruit available to me I was craving sweets! I can also remember blogging a long time ago about not feeling satisf... Read more
Through sand & ocean . . .
. . . over cobblestone, through college . . . but thankfully not thru horse poop! That sums up my running on this vacation.
I am working thru the photos, so a real blog on our trip will have to wait a bit. Meeting SKINNYPOWELL1 & running wi... Read more
Breaking out of my green rut
I've been eating lots of veggies lately, but they're all green: asparagus, zucchini, baby bok choy, romaine. Today I finally saved the baby bell peppers that wre almost too far gone, cut them up & had them with lunch. Sooooo good.
So why do... Read more
So I picked up a couple of interesting products at target yesterday. Luna has come out with fiber bars - almost no protein, but plenty of fiber. Yup, gotta try that. I lime most things by Luna, altho I'm not a big fan of their newer protein bars... Read more
