Well, yesterday was my first day on the Curves eating plan. I'm in Phase 1, which has me eating 1200 calories a day for seven days. Then I'll be moving into Phase 2.
I didn't get hungry AT ALL yesterday. In fact, I am thinking about moving ... Read more
Something I've been wanting to do for ages is join Curves. I finally did that a couple of weeks ago, and on Friday (my fifth workout) I got started on the CurveSmart Program. I am so excited about what this program can do for me if I continue go... Read more
November has been a crazy month. It was NaNoWriMo ( nanowrimo.org ) and I am a Municipal Liaison (ML), which means I organized in-person events all month. We have one more event coming up, on Saturday. The goal of the month is to... Read more
Well, I still need to tweak. Tomorrow I'm going to try my modifications to Monday-Wednesday-Friday. We'll see how that goes.
I'm not sure what's going to happen with the weekend; I'll decide later.
I started knitting a tea cosy today. ... Read more
Well, today was better than Monday. I ate too many carbs, though. Obviously I need to eat more protein at breakfast. So I will have to think about that and change things up for Friday (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday are the same how I've done my ... Read more
Today was good. I had mozzarella cheese for my breakfast and wasn't hungry until lunch time! The only problem is that 4 oz of cheese is A LOT of cheese and really kind of gross. :P So when I have it again next week I'm going to have 2 oz only.

Well, so far so good. I need to tweak the diet some, though; I didn't eat anywhere NEAR enough today, and I was hungry a lot! I think I can fix that with juice "snacks" and twice as much salad and twice as much meat as I ate today. It actually w... Read more
Well, I'm completely sick of being stuck at 230 lbs. I've been stuck here since June or something, and I am DONE.
I have tried a number of things since I hit this plateau, and I'm so discouraged I stopped tracking and everything.
Well,... Read more
Ten years ago today, I embarked upon this strange and wonderful journey. It was the day I started my training in Lovaas-style Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA). I was one member of a five-person team of therapists who would be coming in to the fa... Read more
For those who didn't know, I left on June 30 for Thunder Bay, to look after my parents' pets while they are in Angola for the month. My youngest brother came to TB yesterday, and I returned home today.
I had a lovely day yesterday with my b... Read more
I missed posting when I was supposed to due to time constraints. Funny how that is, eh? :)
In the movie IQ, Albert Einstein states that time doesn't exist.
Well, as smart as A.E. was, I must beg to differ. Time DOES exist, and there is... Read more
Yesterday I posted about changing your attitude. I think I forgot to mention that you need to think positively about the whole endeavour! Know that you can take control and keep control! :)
I'm big on setting goals. I think it's largely due... Read more
I keep getting compliments on my time management, so I thought I'd start a series here about how to make sure things get done.
First of all, I wasn't born with good time management skills. I have ADHD, which means that a lot of this sort of... Read more
Today is my anniversary for joining SparkPeople. I weighed 248 lbs one year ago; today I weighed in at 235 lbs. That means I've lost 13 lbs. Of course, I gained in there; by September of last year, I was up to 255 lbs. That was when I started ta... Read more
On Sunday, I made pita breads and stuffed them with enchilada filling and baked them. Yummy. Yesterday, I made little apple tarts and strawberry tarts. They are yummy!
The pita bread recipe is from The Bread Lover's Bread Machine Cookbook, ... Read more
