Days 7- 8, nothing different to report. I was just ho-humming along. Day 9: This was a Saturday, which is always a hard day for me with food. I'm out and about, wanting to grab food from my favorite places. So, it's no surprise to me that ... Read more

Day 3: I can't remember the day (which is why I shouldn't wait two days to write), but around dinner, I started feeling crappy. I skipped dinner and went to bed early. I couldn't sleep because I felt so yucky. Day 4 ... let's just say UGH.... Read more

Saturday, January 02, 2016      0 comments

So far it seems that this round of W30 will go a little smoother than last (my first) time. Last time, it took a few days and a whole lot of cussing to get into the swing of things. This time, I have a better sense of what amounts and types of f... Read more

In two weeks, I will do my first 1/2 marathon, which has been a goal of mine for a few years. I've done a few marathon-length walks, but I've never run any race more than 15K, and that was when I was much younger. So, since I will meet a long de... Read more

This week, I decided that my "one small change" would be to follow the "rule" of waiting 20 minutes before getting more food. I have not been perfectly consistent, but more often than not this week, I waited after eating to see how I felt. Consi... Read more
