The power of water

Tuesday, April 29, 2014      3 comments

I've been drinking at least one full glass of water before every meal, whenever I feel hungry, and whenever I have a craving. Then I only indulge if I still have the craving or eat a little if I still feel hungry, and I wait to see if I'm still ... Read more

Tapping works

Friday, March 21, 2014      3 comments

Every time I stepped onto the ice, my body ached with terror. After tapping for just two days, I noticed a substantial decrease in my anxiety when thinking about ice skating. We took the kids rollerskating, another anxiety-inducing activity for ... Read more

Best year yet

Wednesday, March 19, 2014      1 comments

So far in 2014, I've taken up belly dancing, ice skating and indoor rock climbing (well, I plan to go back, anyway). I'm also building on last year's rollerskating and bicycling ambitions. I've dipped my toes into running this year, too. As of n... Read more

Stupid calories

Saturday, February 01, 2014      3 comments

I ate less today than normal, but almost double the calories. I got a fast food burger for lunch. 880 calories. I had pizza for dinner. 900 calories. That adds up to the bottom of my range for the whole day, and that was just a fraction of my da... Read more

Gettin' my groove back

Saturday, February 01, 2014      6 comments

I had a minipiphany today. I don't move anymore. I eat my feelings. I have to work hard to feel attractive. (Like serious mental practice.) Tonight I had a date with my hubby. It felt like our actual dating days. Then, on the drive hom... Read more

Food hates me

Thursday, January 30, 2014      3 comments

Well, not all food. Just some food, like wheat bread and conventionally-grown corn. But do I stop eating it? No. Well, mostly, but no. So here I sit, in pain, because I've eaten both of those foods in the last week. My gut is screaming. My head ... Read more

Stress is a family affair

Wednesday, January 29, 2014      1 comments

I am on a quest to destress my husband and me. We made grand plans, but we never followed through. I want to go to yoga once a week. I want to go in family walks every night. I want to do something physical every weekend. I'd love to do chair wa... Read more

Exercise, new experience, and girl time

Tuesday, January 28, 2014      3 comments

A friend of mine is a professional belly dancer. She is giving me lessons. Today was our first. I got in a good workout, we had fun catching up, and my kids even joined in. This is the key to lifelong fitness: enjoying exercise. You have to... Read more

Good, old-fashioned manual labor

Monday, January 27, 2014      2 comments

I worked in the yard today. I'm sore and tired and have a lot more to do. It never ends, really. The calorie-burning possibilities never end! I'm going to take advantage of this for the next couple months before it gets too hit to spend all afte... Read more

If I hadn't eaten dessert

Sunday, January 26, 2014      1 comments

I'd have been under calories for the day. If I'd skipped the magic shell (that I put on banana and strawberries, at least), I'd have been in my calorie range. To add insult to injury, I decided I just had to have potato skins for my 10pm snack. ... Read more

I need to up my game

Saturday, January 25, 2014      4 comments

I started off strong. I lost two pounds in the first 9 days I had my tracker. Then I started eating like crazy. I stopped trying to get my steps. I went back to my old habit of saying, "Eh...I cleaned today. That counts." Today I started to... Read more

I just didn't care

Thursday, January 23, 2014      2 comments

I didn't care today. I really wanted to get my steps. But I didn't care to actually get my steps. I really didn't want to fill up my body with toxic crap. I really didn't care to resist my cravings. I just didn't care today. I could beat my... Read more

In my head

Wednesday, January 22, 2014      2 comments

Three different blogs today seemed to be birthed from my own thoughts. They were all first blogs. I can't say it any better than they can, so let me share: (Goal motivator #2)

Try it first

Monday, January 20, 2014      3 comments

I made a meal plan for today so that maybe, for the first time a long time, I would come in close to my calorie range if not actually in it. I accounted for all the nutrients I need and I took into consideration foods to make me feel full. ... Read more

Eat to live

Monday, January 20, 2014      3 comments

You've probably heard the expression "eat to live; don't live to eat." Maybe you don't really know what it means. Maybe you do. Maybe you hate it because it's so simple and trite. What if we rephrase it? What if we say, "Eat for quality of ... Read more
