I can grill my steak and eat it too!
The SP nutrition tracker rocks. I feel that no food is off limits because the tracker lets me know all the nutrition vitals. So when I found boneless ribeye for $4.99, I bought a tray.
I grilled myself an 8 oz ribeye, baked a potato, an... Read more
I've faithfully been logging good and bad for the last 6 weeks and the weight is SLOWLY coming off. Since the weather is getting nicer and Daylight Savings Time kicked in, I'm hoping that perhaps it'll drop off a tad faster. But the importan... Read more
I try to be accountable and within nutritional guidelines during the week. but come Friday night thru Sunday, an alian takes over and I often sabotage what little accomplishment I achieved the prior 5 days.
Things aren't as dire since I'm... Read more
My weight loss occurs about as quick as glacial movement
Well, it's been 10 days and finally another pound dropped off. I'm sure if I'd stick down near the 1200 cal/day range, it'd be quicker, but I'm almost always at the upper limit. If I had lost 25 lbs already, I could understand taking 10 days t... Read more
A new motivator to lose weight
The interesting thing about working at a mega insurance company is the way they use employees as guinea pigs for new ideas. Each year they add a new layer of restrictions, and procedures you need to go through to get your health insurance, or y... Read more
I Didn't go Hog Wild
Wild Bill and I don't exchange gifts for VDay. However, he did get me a 5 oz bag of Lindt Truffles. I could have easily wolfed down the entire bag in 1 sitting, but I settled for the recommended serving size of 3. Then I gave him 3 and put t... Read more
About to get back in the groove
Totally ate with reckless abandoned all month and now I'm 4 lbs heavier than last. But, I'm getting set to get back to work on healthier and controlled eating.... Read more
Not in the Plan
I ate a lot this weekend. We were invited to "afternoon tea" at a British lady's home Sat. She had made a dozen baked goods. Everything from a raspberry trifle to the heaviest of them all... fruitcake. And there were just 3 of us. The enti... Read more
Gone to the beach
I should be doing a zillion things since we'll be migrating North next weekend. But, I HAPPILY jumped into my bathing suit this afternoon when Bill suggested going to the beach. When I looked in the mirror, I even smiled a little instead of... Read more
10 down; 20 to go
Well, after a winter of fighting the battle of the bulge, I had a minor victory. I've finally lost 10 lbs. It's been years since I've been at this weight, and I must say I feel better. I've got a long way to go, but I'm not discouraged by ... Read more
Back into the routine
Well we finally put our houseguest who was here for 2 weeks on the plane today. Bill and Sam managed to scrape, prep, and paint about 80% of the exterior of the house. So I'm grateful he came for that long, considering this was supposed to be ... Read more
Long Term Company
My hubby's friend (who's laid off over the winters) has come for a 2 week visit. On the plus side, he's helping Bill paint the outside of the house in exchange for the 3 hots and a cot. I'm glad cuz that means my geriatric love isn't paintin... Read more
Silk Dark Chocolate Almond Milk
It's so hard to be good on Val Day. Fortunately, my hubby knows I'm trying to lose weight, so he won't tempt me with food. (I'll be thrilled if he even REMEMBERS to wish me Happy Valentine's Day).
However, I'm still going to indulge in... Read more
Thank Goodness they're gone
If you read my last blog you know I had a disasterous encounter with a batch of homemade chocolate chip cookies on Superbowl Sunday. Fortunately, I was able to restrain myself to 2 last night and 2 the night before. And my hubby ate the rest, ... Read more
Serious crash with some Chocolate Chip Cookies
I went hog wild yesterday and make a large batch of chocolate chip cookies. A serious nemesis for me. It'd been so long since I had any, I went crazy and ate 6 that were about the size of wagon wheels. Fortunately, I gave away about 2 doz... Read more
