Getting ready for Christmas

Tuesday, December 13, 2011      3 comments

I get lazier each year, it seems. This is the 13th of December, and I’ve accomplished almost nothing: a few presents purchased for parties (thus “required”), a few decorations placed, but no serious work done yet. There seems to be an internal s... Read more

routines....

Monday, December 05, 2011      4 comments

Bible reading first thing, while I'm still so sleepy I just want to sit and drink coffee. Done! Clean cat litter box. Done! Drawn to the computer; spin SP wheel. Done! Play SP trivia. Done! Most difficult job of the day: dragging myself ... Read more

One pound at a time

Monday, October 17, 2011      4 comments

I lost a pound this past week. The glory of that is that it reverses the trend I've had lately. Yay! For me, it's all about exercise. I still haven't forced myself out to walk lately, but Curves and Leslie Sansone are my friends.... Read more

Audio Book recommendation

Friday, October 14, 2011      1 comments

I love to read and sew at the same time. I do this, of course, with Audio books. This last one calls for a recommendation to all Spark People; it actually may have come from someone else here recommending it to me. The End of Overeating: Ta... Read more

Cleaning the pantry

Saturday, September 17, 2011      6 comments

After reading something about the nature of processed foods to assist us in GAINING weight, I decided to check our own pantry. Bear in mind, I don't cook that much since our kids left home. When I cook completely healthily all the time, my husba... Read more

Consistency...

Wednesday, July 27, 2011      4 comments

My biggest struggle right now. I seem to have this rebellious nature that does NOT like routine! I'll do a "good thing" consistently for several days, then consciously decide I don't want to do that on THIS day. Causes me all kinds of grief... Read more

An epiphany

Monday, July 25, 2011      3 comments

This shames me to confess this. Yesterday, at a restaurant, a very overweight person finished eating and left the restaurant. I silently congratulated myself on the fact that I am thinner. My next thought literally was that she could be a fellow... Read more

New Heights I'm gaining every day....

Tuesday, July 19, 2011      4 comments

That's a line in a church hymn, and it just popped into my head when I thought about my new high calorie burn in Curves workout today. I think the gain came from Spark People's 28-day Boot camp Challenge I just participated in. My body is strong... Read more

Busy....

and it helps me lose weight. The main factor is staying on my feet more instead of sitting here at the computer, though when my husband and I are working, that's necessary. Our latest job was officially ended Sunday, when we e-mailed the invoice... Read more

Back home...

Tuesday, June 28, 2011      2 comments

after being gone about 12 days. I came home with a cold and feeling tired, but am anxious to get back on the exercise track. Walked when I could, took the stairs up and down six hotel flights, ate what I wanted. No weight gain, which is great! ... Read more
