Devastated... but still Hopeful

Thursday, June 25, 2015      6 comments

This is not a weight blog... or even a "healthy habits" blog... rather it is one of extreme personal disappointment and sorrow. While I know that many (most) won't understand, my friends that are organic gardeners certainly will. We (organ... Read more

This may be entirely stupid but...

Tuesday, June 23, 2015      9 comments

I did it anyway. To the tune of $12.50. Not bad for a mistake, but I'm really (okay, pretty) confident that in a month this will not be a mistake. First of all, I was feeling pretty pumped because after the 2 weeks of unexplained weight g... Read more

You ate my chicken breast???

Thursday, June 11, 2015      11 comments

First of all, I know this is incredibly petty. I own that. But because I am not one to pitch a fit in person and yell at my wonderful DH (and he really IS wonderful) I needed a place to vent. Facebook is out (I hate when people complain about ot... Read more

Gaining weight? Seriously???

Wednesday, June 10, 2015      7 comments

Week 1 looked good... down 1.5 pounds. When I weighed in early (day 12) I was back up 1.2 pounds. Seriously? Yeah, I slid that one day (day 8, to be exact) and I did "splurge" on a couple of birthday treats (I made a lower fat/calorie cheeseca... Read more

Well, it happened...

NOTE: for some reason the blog did nor originally post in it's entirety. This is the blog as it SHOULD have posted... ****************************
********** It was day 8. I didn't just fall off the wagon, I jumped off. I nee... Read more

Well... THAT was a mistake!

A few years ago I tried a smoothie that I loved. It was like dessert in a cup. And full of good things... banana, peanut butter, avocado, spinach and a touch of sea salt. I adored it. Then I quit eating it - probably because avocados wer... Read more

Day 5 - come and gone...

Saturday, May 30, 2015      5 comments

Not that there is something about Day 5. It has no magic, no superstition, no hold on me. It's the days and weeks past that, but still it lingers in my brain as some wall that is hard to not-so-much GET past as STAY past. And I took day... Read more

Day 4 - clean quiche and frozen yogurt

Thursday, May 28, 2015      7 comments

Well, it's been 4 straight clean-eating, active, water-drinking days. No bumps yet and it helps that a.) I'm on summer break and I have time to plan, cook, track, get active, etc. and b.) my kids are still in school. That makes a lot of time f... Read more

What a day!

Tuesday, May 26, 2015      11 comments

First of all... WOW! I can't believe the responses that my blog yesterday generated. I had no idea that it would hit so close to home for so many. Funny how, when you're kinda introverted and keep all this stuff in, you can believe that you'r... Read more

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts When exactly is "rock bottom"?

Monday, May 25, 2015      186 comments

I think for me, it was yesterday. A little history - and then moving on... As my Spark Page notes, I lost 40 pounds way back... about 8 years ago. I know WHAT to do. I even know HOW to do it. It was amazing. And then a whole lot o... Read more

Yeah! My doctor is on my side!

For those of you that have been riding this gluten-intollerant roller coaster with me - you may remember that both my general practitioner and my endocrinologist poo-poo-d (sp? who knows?) my self diagnosis of gluten intollerance probably Celia... Read more

Gluten Free Granola on a Dime

Monday, July 11, 2011      6 comments

Well... $3.83 actually. After buying Gluten-Free granola this weekend while we were up in the mountains and then pricing it down here in Denver, I decided that as expensive as GF Oats are, SURELY I could make it myself for cheaper. And I did. ... Read more

Sad Day for Worms (and me!)

Monday, July 04, 2011      8 comments

I have been worm composting only since last September. I bought a few boxes from a bait shop (only about 1/8 of a pound) and have my ups and downs... I followed instructions on YouTube to set it up, then overfed them. Most died, but I saved en... Read more

An Excellent Week

Why? 1. I have felt GOOD (not okay, but GOOD) for about 5 days straight! emoticon Last gluten contamination w... Read more

Brigitte's Salad

Friday, June 10, 2011      4 comments

So... when we took our road trip (down to "the farm") a few weeks ago, we checked out a couple of books on CD for the kids to listen to. One was called The Higher Power of Lucky by Susan Patron (Newberry Award) and I have to say I didn't LOVE i... Read more
