The year past and the year ahead
2017 was quite eventful, and also followed along the same path I've been.
I maintained my weight within a 5 pound range, for the most part. My weight goal is 135 and I've pretty much kept it around that. At the moment I'm a bit higher th... Read more
So I made my list, and picked one, which is paying more attention to my satiety level and stopping eating when I'm satisfied.
But I also put on there: "find a new doctor". So on Monday I called the medical group and made an appointment wit... Read more
Here are some things I'd like to do:
eat more slowly
start cooking/preparing my snacks instead of eating ready made snacks
notice my satiety level better (stop eating when I'm satisfied)

All these things that I've done...
Yes, it's a quote from a Killers song that popped into my head as I was pondering this blog.
So yesterday I blogged about feeling lost, adrift, not having a good direction to head, and thought I should make a list of things I'd like to acco... Read more
What to do?
I do a lot of thinking...and that is helpful, but doesn't really get to the doing all the time.
I don't know if it's because I don't get around to picking a goal, then working on it, or if it's because none of the things I think about rea... Read more
***link***plan to stop tracking food
From Armi Legg at Evidence mag this is a 9 step process to ease into not tracking food anymore. Since I've been tracking for a couple of months (off and on, mostly on) I think I may try this once I get to my mid-weight in my range, I'm still a ... Read more
Has it been a month already? Mindfulness wrap-up
Wow, February went by quickly! I guess that's the norm for such a short month....

one week of mindful eating
I was pondering as I walked home from work the other day how focusing on being mindful while eating was moving into other parts of my life. I have been focusing more on the present moment not only while eating, but also while walking, working o... Read more
February goal(s) and reviewing January
Just looked back at my January goal blog to see how I did. My January goal was to pick up my knitting again, and I set my goal at knitting at least 3 days a week. I nailed it! I put it on my tracker, and made more than 3 days every week in Ja... Read more
keeping it simple
It's been more than a week since I've blogged, and a busy week it's been!
I did get some knitting done 6/7 days, so that's one for the "win" column, since my goal is 3 days a week. ... Read more
Yesterday was a low key, hang-out-at-home-and-do-nothin
g kind of day...I think we all need those every now and again. I'm not sure if it was a bit of a hangover from the yoga/facial (she did a fairly deep massage, especially my shoulder/nec... Read more
change of focus

a dose of reality
Sometimes reality strikes, and you just have to take a good look at it. I've decided to start a manual food log, just to see if I really am making healthy choices for the most part. And I think I am, but I do find that when I feel like I have ... Read more
