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
What an awesome idea! I saw this product featured on the Rachael Ray show this morning, and it's just what I've been looking for! I really want to get back into running more regularly, especially outdoors. But the problem with running outside is... Read more
Psychology and our anniversary dinner
Yesterday was our 6th wedding anniversary, so hubby and I decided to go out to dinner. Earlier this year, a Fogo de Chao opened in our area. Hubby (being a guy) was instantly intrigued: All you can eat meat, woo hoo! I ignored the little "spark... Read more

Battling the ice cream monster
Hi everyone! I haven't blogged in a while. Last week was busy with jury duty. Out of hundreds of people, I was one of the lucky 14 (12 plus 2 alternates) to be chosen for a trial. It took all week but we had deliberations on Friday and now it's ... Read more
"You look great"
These three words from a near-stranger totally made my day yesterday.
I was walking out the door to go to the gym when I saw my next-door neighbor at her door. We smiled and said our hellos, and then she said to me, "You look great, by the w... Read more
I am feeling much better today. I also feel like I am getting my mojo back a little bit in terms of fitness. Yesterday I took a spinning class for the first time in months, followed by a cool abs class.
I've decided to focus on not only lo... Read more
Retraining the brain
I can't pinpoint exactly what is wrong with me, but I've been struggling, so much so that I have all but given up. I may be sad, bored or just tired. Or any combination of them.
I am going over my calories every day. By a lot. Last Friday I... Read more
Muffin top, begone!
Ok, I am not at goal yet -- tossing around the same 5 pounds-- but I've lost almost 60 pounds. So why, oh why, do I still have a muffin top??? At this point, it's more of a mini muffin, but still...
I hate it! I want it to go away! It's a cons... Read more
