Emotional eating

Tuesday, October 14, 2008      8 comments

Lately, I've been snacking on sweets at night. Not because I'm hungry (though my brain tries to convince me that I am) but because chocolate chip oatmeal cookies and ice cream just make me feel better. The scale has been kind so far. Thank goodn... Read more

The Baltimore Marathon

Saturday, October 11, 2008      4 comments

I know what you might be thinking upon seeing the blog title. NO, I did not run the Baltimore Marathon. But as DH and I walked to and from the gym for our morning workout, we saw many of the runners pass through our area. It was fun to cheer th... Read more

Even at the gym?!?!

Friday, October 03, 2008      7 comments

I was at the gym yesterday morning and noticed they were setting up for a large staff meeting. They had the basketball court filled with tables and chairs. When I looked in (the basketball court's mesh-like "walls" are transparent) some of the ... Read more

Tightening the purse strings

Saturday, September 27, 2008      11 comments

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

Wednesday, September 24, 2008      8 comments

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

Skinny Bitch

Friday, September 19, 2008      16 comments

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?

Friday, September 12, 2008      10 comments

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

Wednesday, September 10, 2008      11 comments

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

Wednesday, September 03, 2008      7 comments

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!

Tuesday, September 02, 2008      7 comments

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

Thursday, August 28, 2008      6 comments

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

Wednesday, August 13, 2008      10 comments

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


Saturday, August 09, 2008      14 comments

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

Wednesday, July 30, 2008      13 comments

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!

Tuesday, July 29, 2008      6 comments

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
