Okay...I'm officially REALLY tired of now TS Isaac! He decided to camp out in SE Louisiana, barely crawling forward, and dragging mondo amounts of water and dumping them all over our area. Sections of town that have never flooded before are floo... Read more
Hurricane Party! Or, Sheltering in Place, Sort Of
Okay, so Isaac is still crawling toward us, nearly a direct hit by the eye, if he stays on his current track. Only, it's a weak, unorganized storm, that has just "wobbled" to the west, to quote the meteorologist, so the wind impact here will be... Read more
On the Watch for Hurricane Isaac
Today's been a good food day, except where sodium is concerned. Haven't done my 10+ min exercise yet, and it's so late, it won't be cardio!

Ups & Downs Today
Well, technically, yesterday, since it's after midnight...
Firstly, I tried to be prepared because I knew I'd be going out tonight to a Mexican restaurant. My roomie was singing a gig there, and I hadn't heard her band yet. They're good! So... Read more

Odd, Strange & Peculiar
Odd day today, I wasn't really myself, and I think it relates to the fact that I was thrown for a loop schedule-wise yesterday, and ended up getting food out twice. Didn't even realize it until today, but I didn't take ANY of my supplements yest... Read more
A Donut Saved...

Knowing that my church would be having a fellowship meal after church today, and knowing what the menu was, I decided to be careful with calories at b'fast. This turned out to be a wise decision!
It worked out really well.

'Nuther Lesson Learned
Okay...when you're planning to eat out, MAKE SURE you've recorded the correct nutrition figures for the items you're interested in. Made that mistake with Chili's today.

Reprise of the Calorie Chase
This has been another day when I just can't get myself even to the bottom of my calorie range, even though I had half a blueberry cake donut this afternoon. It's strange...
I tried something new today, fixing up a can of Blue Runner No Salt... Read more
I just want to express a pet peeve of mine: the height-weight charts doctors use to tell you if you're "normal", "overweight", "obese"... (And don't get me started on the use of "obese"...)
