Blessed Sleep

Wednesday, December 10, 2014      5 comments

I do two things wrong. I share my bed with a 6'1" guy and a 40 pound dog. The dog truly is the biggest issue because she likes to sleep between my DH and me (on her special sheet) with her head on one of our hips and her hindquarters against t... Read more

And so goes Tuesday

Wednesday, December 10, 2014      3 comments

I meant to blog today and almost didn't get it done. Busy day filled with errands and work. Went to lunch with a friend to a Mexican restaurant and ordered Tacos Al Carbon. Love that stuff but it was particularly hot today and since that time... Read more

Busy Day

Saturday, December 06, 2014      5 comments

It seemed like I did not rest today - always doing something. Got in my walking workouts, one in the morning (great!) and then a shorter outing this evening. Did 20 minutes of yoga. I was kind of worried about squeezing this in but once I had... Read more

Personal Challenge Continued

Saturday, December 06, 2014      2 comments

So.....heading into December I pledged to keep working on weight loss. Not to give myself a pass just 'because it's the holidays and what can you do?' First week, I've been off more days than on track. Sigh.....but still doing better than I w... Read more

December...Here We GO!

Monday, December 01, 2014      6 comments

I'm up at dawn this cold, dark morning. As I look out my windows I see the beginning of a winter sky...some low clouds sketched across the horizon, tree skeletons darkly reaching out into the gray. It's a new month, the last of the year. I fee... Read more

One holiday done....

Friday, November 28, 2014      5 comments

I hope all of my US friends had a great Thanksgiving. It's a wonderful holiday at it's core and it was always the one holiday that was least commercialized....but we're really messing with that BIG TIME with all the crazy sales, the waiting in l... Read more

SparkPeople Normal

Tuesday, November 18, 2014      14 comments

I realized today that I'm leading a 'SparkPeople Normal' day. The routine I've established is very comfortable to me by this time. And it keeps me heading towards weight loss and health....until I choose to take a detour. Read more

Sunny Sunday

Sunday, November 16, 2014      3 comments

Yesterday was a little surprising. I knew another front was heading our way but I wasn't expecting much snow with it, just another drop to below zero temps. So I was surprised that this gray day snowed from dawn till evening. It feels like th... Read more

State of Me

Thursday, November 13, 2014      3 comments

I'm looking out of my home office window at a deep freeze. Was below zero last night, brrrrrr. Today the sun is out and we have about 3-4 inches of snow on the ground. Tomorrow it should get close to freezing, then another cold front comes th... Read more

In The Beginning.....

Wednesday, November 12, 2014      1 comments

I was lost, frustrated and about 25 pounds above what is a good weight for me. I had no clue how to get rid of the extra baggage AND my weight just kept creeping up. Arrrrgggghhhhh Read more

Avoiding the Holiday Weight Gain Surrender

Tuesday, November 11, 2014      4 comments

For the first time in years I am not just surrendering to the standard 'hey, you're in the US' weight gain from Halloween to New Years Day. As mentioned before, I've just asked myself to maintain through those holidays past. And I more or less... Read more

Talkin' or walkin'?

Monday, November 03, 2014      3 comments

Talkin' the talk and/or walkin' the walk? This has been my challenge for some time because I've learned a LOT here at SP. My issue is....doing what I know works. ...Read more

Blowing It UP!

Thursday, October 30, 2014      2 comments

November will be here in a couple of days and that takes us into the holidays. In the past, I've set my target for November and December simply to maintain. To do no damage. But this time I want to BLOW THAT UP! Read more

Here's My Problem

Thursday, October 30, 2014      3 comments

My biggest problem with food is portion control. I 'over serve' myself. The foods I choose are healthy, the way I prepare things (normally) is to grill, steam, bake. I'm not into a lot of sauces. I just WANT more than I need of the things ... Read more
