Starting over again
I restarted my goals today. It was time. I've been on a bad trajectory for the past few month, bad eating habits, not enough exercise, weight climbing. I having been posting to my blog, either, so it's about time I started again.
I've been... Read more
Baby steps toward a new life
I was inspired by 111BUTTERFLY111 and her New Year's blog about goal-setting. But I have found myself struggling and thinking over the course of days about how to set my own goals. Establishing goals does not come that easily to me.

Like a vegan
My husband gave me that look when I told him I think I need to follow a vegan diet. The look said, "We are meat eaters."
It is true. I like a good steak or a hamburger with cheese and lots of mustard. I enjoy chicken, cheese, yogurt, baked... Read more
A growth moment
I think I am growing a bit in my willingness to be accountable for my weight.
Let's put it this way, I've been having a bad week -- REALLY bad -- as far as diet is concerned. They have been rolling out the holiday cookies at work and I hav... Read more
Up to scratch
I promised to report back on that diet-related itching problem I was having. It has been over a week and I do believe moderating my diet has helped.

Keeping it real
Yesterday, my husband said, "You seem to be doing better on this diet than some of the others."
It's true, I don't seem to be having the kind of anxiety I have felt with other diets. I have been on a lot of diets: cabbage soup diet, food co... Read more
My husband and I are particularly good at spending money. Without a budget system in place, we would quickly and easily spend on the latest impulse gadget, music, books and apps from the iTunes Store, a cute shirt or any other trivial thing that... Read more
Sometimes I think I am part otter. I think I could live my entire life In the water. When I was young, i used to look forward every summer to romping every day in the city pool. So when it came time to get back on a regular exercise program, wat... Read more
The defiant one
Starting a new diet is an interesting and exciting phase for me. I've taken the first step. I have started eating more in moderation. I am exercising again. I feel strong in mind and body (well I'm getting there anyway). I feel I have the power ... Read more
Hungry for the first time
I woke up feeling hungry for the first time in a very long time today. I don't feel that's a bad thing. I have actually been looking forward to the feeling a bit. It is one way to feel in tune with my body, and my body and I have been out of tou... Read more
