Tightening the purse strings
It's 1 am and I can't sleep. Too much on my mind. First off, for anyone reading this... just a warning that this blog will have nothing whatsoever to do with weight loss or food. Except for maybe emotional eating.
Today, I found out that so... Read more
That last stubborn pound
One pound. No big deal, right? When we gain a pound we think "It's okay. It's JUST a pound. A one-pound gain is not noticeable anyway." When we lose a pound, we think "So what?? It's ONLY one pound."
Well, I'm going to have to disagree wit... Read more
I recently finished reading "Skinny Bitch" and I was not impressed at all. The book does bring up some good points about nutrition but nothing that I didn't already know.
I'm no prude, but this book was unnecessarily vulgar. But I guess that... Read more
What's the deal?
I know this blog might hurt some people's feelings (and that is not my intent) but I can't take it anymore. It's at the point where I'm offended.
What is the deal with all the religion on this site? This morning, there was a new post in one... Read more
The Aurelia FitFlop
OK, there's been a lot of talk about FitFlops today - first in the Daily Spark and also on my What Not to Wear Fans team.
For those who don't know what they are, FitFlops are these, well, flip-flops that claim to give you a bit of a leg wor... Read more
In danger of re-toxifying myself
I have eaten so much crap lately that I am in serious danger of going backwards. And that is one place I DO NOT want to go.
A lot of it is emotional eating. I have been very emotional this week for some reason. And sometimes I just let mys... Read more
Note to self: NO TACO BELL on road trips! Ever!
DH and I were on the road yesterday for our 9+ hour drive home from SC and got hungry. The usual fast food dominates our nation's highways. We unfortunately decided on Taco Bell for dinner. Blech, yuck, blech, YUCK!! I felt sick to my tummy for ... Read more
New mini goals for me
I've set a few new goals for myself, just to keep things interesting. I don't want to get into a rut with my workouts. I also want the scale to move 2 more pounds, but I am not going to obsess over it. I've been doing pretty well with food this ... Read more
Body fat analysis
The personal trainers at my gym do body fat analysis for free, so I decided to go for it.
It turns out my body fat is 24%. The healthy range is 15%-27%. So I am towards the upper end of that. I'm happy with that, though I want to try to... Read more
I just feel so full, bloated and tired today. I have not been good on the food front at ALL. Barbecue for lunch, turtle chex mix for a snack, leftover pizza for dinner. DH, the doggie and I just went for a long walk. Then I stuffed my face with ... Read more
Sweets at night
I have a big problem with cravings in the evenings. I love sweets. I do pretty well not eating them during the day, but at night I get these really bad cravings for chocolate or ice cream. Or chocolate ice cream. :)
I don't crave sweets much ... Read more
Still not at goal but feelin' great!
OK, so, I've been trying to lose the same 5 pounds for months now. This will put me at my goal weight. I'm close but fluctuate up and down, never getting below 117. I have to admit I am not as dedicated as I was in the past when it comes to foo... Read more
That's what I get for going out for pizza!
We don't have a whole lot of food in the house right now (we need to go to the grocery store) so last night we decided to go to a neighborhood bar for dinner and a drink. This place usually has good pizzas. Hubby had a long busy day. He hadn't... Read more
I love to exercise...who woulda thought???
I was working out at the gym today ... and during my workout I started to think about how far I've come in terms of fitness in just one short year.
As a child I wasn't very active. Yes, I rode my bike and ran around but I hated gym class w... Read more
TOM and the chocolate fiend!
Ok, TOM is here. And this entire week, I have been eating chocolate like a mad woman. Eeeeek!!
Chocolate chip cookies (with chickpeas in them, shhh....), chocolate-covered macadamia nuts from Trader Joe's, 100-calorie chocolate bars from TJ... Read more
