It's Hard to Eat Too Much
The title above is a little misleading. I don't mean to say that it's difficult to make myself eat too much. What I mean to say is that when I eat too much my body takes it HARD!
This weekend consisted of work, church, and two parties. On Sat... Read more
I Survived Thanksgiving!
Well, I knew I would go over my calorie range. That's a given. BUT. ..for the most part, I managed to control myself. And I had a lovely time, visiting with my family without obsessing over the food. THAT is an NSV!
It's a novelty to have had... Read more
Tweaking the Food
I decided to go further than I have so far, in concentrating on protein, and not balking at fat that accompanies it. I have been mostly satisfied all day, and easily within my ranges.
But after our church class tonight, I wanted a little so... Read more
Amazing What a Little Sleep Can Do
So, given my age (48), and the hormone fluctuations expected around now, as well as not-so-quiet roommates, I've been having interrupted sleep for a long time now. The havoc this plays on your mind, your will power, etc., is HUGE.
However,... Read more
...my right to vote!
A drippy, rainy, grey, not hot, but not cold, day. An inauspicious omen considering that today is election day.
I have discovered that if I'm tired, and I stay up instead of going to bed, I will eat any snacky thing my ey... Read more
Been a Little While

Okay, so much for trying to fly solo with no accountability...
Nearly a year and just over 15 lbs later, I have decided to reset. Not likely that I'll be able to spend a great deal of time on SP this go round, but at least I can still log a... Read more

Last night's blog entry describes my newest physical challenge...bit o' pain there as well. Tried to throw some humor into it...lemme know if I failed miserably when you read it. ;-)
But, one thing I didn't touch on was the NSV that was co... Read more
No, it's not about a dysfunctional fear of running out of BBQ ribs...wish it were!
An hour or so after I got to work today, I turned to answer the phone and immediately sucked my breath in sharply as it felt like someone was jabbing a penci... Read more
Some Things I'm Learning
Okay, so every now and then, you have to stop and think about what you've learned. Here's a brief list of things that have been impressed on my mind lately.
1. I need to eat more fish. ... Read more
Hidden Sodium, Groaning Scale
I had Chinese for lunch on Sunday, and knew that I'd be a bit over calories for the day, but that I had room for it. I had the tiny cup of Egg Drop soup (with fried Wonton crunchies), and the Egg Roll. But, I only ate about 1/3 of the Shrimp Fri... Read more
Just a Blog
This is a blog just to blog. Nothing major to report. The Chinese food was way higher in calories than I expected, even though I only ate half my plate. And I have to wash out all the excess sodium it gave me...I hate feeling puffy. Not to menti... Read more
Starting the year, I decided to challenge myself to get back into the routines that I had established before the holidays and my roomie's wedding, etc.
In the face of that, I managed to log a few NSV's the last 2 weeks...
After re-esta... Read more
Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds!
Okay...I didn't make it to the gym tonight, for various reasons. However, I did manage to get in some exercise.
What I just finished was the Day 1 video from the January Jumpstart Challenge. 8 min of butt-kicking interval cardio! I think my... Read more
