erm, are you kidding me?!
Wow, now I GET it. Macaroni Grill opened up recently. We love to go for pau hana drinks, etc. For the first time, I've actually looked up the damage of what I eat. Was starving last night so started with the Mozzarella Alla Caprese Salad and cho... Read more
I ate an orange...ew
I am so not a fruit person. Not sure why that may be the case, but it is. I thought I'd try it again sinc... Read more
If your significant other gained weight, would it bother you? Why or why not?
It does bother me when DH gains weight because it usually means that I have gained weight too. I've noticed that we do seem to be a team in fitness/health and on the flip side as well. He's had some serious health problems in the past, mostly st... Read more
Travel, Work & Entertaining
I've found it's so much easier to stay on track when it's just me at home. I can take what's for dinner with the family and just portion it out right... b'fast and lunch in the fridge at work, etc. I have learned over the past couple of days tha... Read more
I really could not have picked a crazier week to recommit, darn it. But it's good for me, right? Work today and fly out tonight for work for the next 2 days. Had a wild morning packing, etc. in effort to get to work on time. Was 1/2 hour late be... Read more
So much for sneaking back in...
Well, SP, way to get me to stick to it =) Motivator of the day, huh? And here I thought I could quietly sneak back and ramp up, hee hee. So, Happy Monday... we all still have jobs... at least for today. I ate breakfast for the first time in mont... Read more
Are you kidding me?! Last post was June 2008. Where does the time go...besides to my hips and stomach, lol. Starting back up...from scratch gosh darn it. Exercise was NADA since October. Work is wild but finally decided that I need to take my ow... Read more
Earth Hour -- Sat., 3/29 8pm - 9pm
What difference can an hour make? You'd be surprised -- when 2.2 million residents and 2,100 businesses in Sydney, Australia, all turned off their lights for an hour in 2007, they reduced energy use by 10.2% that day. That's equivalent to taking... Read more
i am alive...
OK, got knocked flat. I flew to HNL last week roundtrip one flight over, the next back an hour or so later and I was toast. This cold/flu bug took over completely. Tried to get exercise in where I could (mainly my running)... but GOSH, this one ... Read more
Down, but not out
Ick, this chest congestion is making me crazy!! Cancelled sales calls this week because I sound so gross, no one in their right mind would want to meet with me! Attempted my usual 1-hour / 6.2 mile run today, but just couldn't move enough air in... Read more
This week... day 6
I caught DH's cold. Zicam seems to be keeping the worst at bay, but man oh man, craving carbs and salt and feeling just so slow. Managed to get out and walk in the AM -- proud about that.
1,352 cals. In range for carbs/fat/protein. But hon... Read more
This week... day 5
Ate in the employee caf for the first time in a VERY long time. I heard they had pot roast and I was needing some solid protein. As soon as I walked in, I remembered exactly WHY I bring my own lunch.... the desserts are first in line... I'm talk... Read more
This week... day 4
Broke... had taro chips at lunch. No dip. But still, not too bad.
1,527 calories. 1 g fat over range, and right in there with carbs/protein. 29g fiber. (yay!). Sodium at a whopping 4,245 -- the ahi poke at lunch with the taro chips did me i... Read more
This week... day 3
The big question of the night was Chips & Dip or No Chips & Dip? Chips & Dip or No Chips & Dip? Chips & Dip or No Chips & Dip? Chips & Dip or No Chips & Dip? Chips & Dip or No Chips & Dip? Chips & Dip or No Chips & Dip? It went through my brain ... Read more
