the ugly American

I am still grieved over the treatment Foreman - and other Latinos - received coming into the States through Houston. I am glad he came through Atlanta last year when he came the first time - pleasantly uneventful, he was even given 10 days more... Read more

Nearly there...

This morning the scale said 201.5 (pre-poo, so I've entered 201!) much to my delight. Alas, this morning I only did my school-walk cardio, nothing extra, and I may not get to the strenght either: last might I was doing last minute prep for Forem... Read more

another challenge arises

To my great joy and delight, my number one spiritual son from Peru, Foreman (we joke he is also the most expensive, as I support his pastoral and missionary work - he's featured in my Gallery) arrives Wednesday from Peru to spend some time in th... Read more

some nutritional no-no's I've learned

Thursday, November 02, 2006      0 comments

It's good to have lots of fruits and veggies. I try to have four of each daily. Usually I go for two fruits with breakfast. For instance, a friend gave me some pears, LOTS of pears, so I've had double portions.Well, I read that prunes are way up... Read more

not the main motivation, but a nice perk

I'm not trying to get comments at all, but today on my way to the loo at school one of the teachers Iused to work with stopped me and told me how wonderful I was looking, and that I looked twenty years younger. TWENTY!? How old did I LOOK? The ... Read more

AAARGH again!

Weekends are the worst! I can start out okay with my usual breakfast. But Fridays, for example, are my evenings off, and DH likes to go to a restaurant - and so do I for that matter - and while I may actually stay in limits, like I did recentl... Read more

Cuy! Cuy! Cuy!

I believe the Peruvian name for guinea pig is an onompatopeia (spelling?) Anyway, today to gain one littel Spark Point I did a search, and usually I just think, "hmm, what shall I look up today?" So I decided to look up guinea pigs. Found an art... Read more

AT LAST!

I broke through the barrier of 204! Weighing in at pre-poop 203 this morning, I am hopeful for 202 tomorrow morning - SIXTY pounds since I started. A Happy Anniversary present to myself (I suppose to dh as well, not that he really cares about my... Read more

water water water

Since i started school, I've been filling 3-4 half liter bottles halfway and freezing them the night before, then filling them the rest of the way with water before heading to school. With 4 bottles I can easily reach the 8 cup goal before lunc... Read more

Almost forgot about blogging!

And what does it mean, BLOG? Is it an acronym? Well, anyway... While I appreciate the Richard Simmons' workouts, and the oldies can be fun, I DON'T like having "Upside Down" and "Maniac" stuck in my head...so one night I sat and jotted down ... Read more

Daughter is best buddy

Friday, October 20, 2006      1 comments

Abi lives with me (along with her 2 younglings, my grandkids) and it's she who got me into SP. She's been the greatest buddy, keeping me from trying calorie rich samples while we shop and saying no to things when I couldn't...and at the same tim... Read more

Abi and I have 3 exercise dvd's - Richard Simmons 60's and 80's Blastoffs, and a "Burn Fat Fast" by someone Austin. 60's is the lowest impact; then 80's; then Burn. So, depending how we're feeling, or what ELSE we've done, we decide which dvd to... Read more

Was checking out spark points, and decided I'd look into this. So, I copy pasted the requirements here for a reminder for myself. Hopefully I'll continue to have ENOUGH spare time at work to maintain membership! We have a change coming t... Read more

TRYING NEW FOODS

Wednesday, August 16, 2006      0 comments

I can be adventurous, which is probably why I make it as a missionary... I already tried alligator (Italian sausage at an art festival here in Rochester) but I had it a different way inPeru. There is a large, tasty fish there called Paiche, an... Read more

BEEF! and other good foods

Wednesday, June 21, 2006      0 comments

I haven't had real beef in a while - can't count those 2 pathetic burgers I got at Burger King on my way home from buffalo -! And while it is possible to get beef in Peru, they don't really know how to cook it so it's nice and tender (like when... Read more
