Back Again
Monday, August 06, 2012      2 comments

It's been almost a year since I last posted. I am back. For a long time I was simply too discouraged to keep on trying. But, somewhere, down deep, I missed this site. I missed logging in my food and looking at the results. I missed logging ... Read more

So, the mindful eating really really pays off. I am (according to my doctor) down 8 pounds and two whole point on my A1c. Still not under 7.0 but I am getting there! I found a great deal on testing strips - 200 for $125. Most pharmac... Read more
A mindful eating breakthrough
Saturday, August 20, 2011      1 comments

So, today was a big day for me. I went out for the second time this week and I didn't overeat! I didn't eat at all. I made plans to meet friends for coffee. And by golly that is exactly what I did. I just had two coffees! No pastries, no co... Read more
Getting past my mind-blocks
Thursday, May 26, 2011      1 comments

Last night I was working out with my trainer. He had me doing the side steps onto one riser plus the stablizer mat. That makes it more of a balance thing in addition to the normal side step up, side step down. The first one was my ah-ha momen... Read more
This is a process not a race!

Everyone, Please remember, this is a process and not a race! You don't have to be perfect at your diet and exercise program. You just have to keep making progress. By progress I mean that next month you will have more good food choices days... Read more

Look at the process not progress!
Monday, May 09, 2011      5 comments

Okay my friends, It is time to put away the scale. Time to buckle down and pay attention to the process and not the progress. Not losing weight like you want? Maybe its the process. Start by recording your food for two solid weeks... Read more
Here's the real scoop!
Wednesday, April 06, 2011      4 comments

Walking is good for you! Of course that's not the real scoop. The real scoop is the number of ways that walking is good for you. I walk for 50 minutes (at least) four days a week. Two ten minute breaks at work, and 30 minutes at lu... Read more

Friday, March 04, 2011      3 comments

The scale used to lie to me all the time, so I stopped paying attention to it. Now, I step on it maybe once a month? Sometimes, only at the doctor's office on my quarterly visits. Why don't I step on it more often: daily, like many of my frien... Read more

Sparkpeople sent me the following for my birthday: -- What matters most in life is often viewed as peripheral to the things that we usually focus on. Passion takes a backseat to production, wellness to working, and balance to busyness. The ... Read more
