A fresh start

Sunday, May 11, 2014      5 comments

Congratulations to me! Three nights ago I graduated with a master's degree in Education, Equity and Cultural Diversity from the University of Colorado. It has been a two-and-one-half year journey during which there were times that I was barely... Read more

Finally!

Saturday, January 26, 2013      2 comments

So - after weeks of doing everything right, I took a much-needed hiatus from the over-analyzing I'd been doing. I had a beer. I bought and ate, IN MUCH MODERATION, a bag of gluten-free chocolate-covered pretzels. I didn't track, but I made go... Read more

Can't believe it's been so long...

Seems like only a few days ago since I posted my last blog. Has it really been a week and a half? Well, I'm still not losing any weight. I haven't given up, but I did take a bit of a TypeA, hyper-control break. Last week I lost one of m... Read more

Follow-Up

Saturday, January 12, 2013      2 comments

After having a bit of a panic attack (well - not really - but it sure didn't feel good) about gaining when I've been doing EVERYTHING right, I've settled down. And weighed myself again - for the official weigh-in of the Biggest Loser Challenge ... Read more

What's UP?

Friday, January 11, 2013      1 comments

So... as I've said before - when I lost 40 pounds about 5 years ago I did it by 1.) clean eating (I just started with this - no exercise for the first couple of weeks... just focused on my food choice). Then added 2.) light aerobics - mostly j... Read more

Just a little self-pep talk...

Thursday, January 03, 2013      4 comments

I dropped almost 1-1/2 pounds this week. Not bad, but I was aiming for 2 so I was not really excited. And then... well... then I decided to take measurements as part of my tracking and ... wow. That was tough. Actually wrapping the mea... Read more

New Year - New Me

Wednesday, January 02, 2013      1 comments

So far the week has gone well... I've eaten clean 90-100% of the time, I've exercised almost every day. I've tracked meals as much as I could. I think I've lost a pound or two, but I'll have to check in the morning. (When I weigh myself right... Read more

New Year - New Plan

Wednesday, December 26, 2012      2 comments

Husband is on board (yeah!) so we're doing this together. I'm ready - now that I just finished my toughest semester at the University (2 classes, took 1+ hours to get there and 45 min to get home, course work PLUS full time job) and I'm on brea... Read more

Back... again... and again

Saturday, October 27, 2012      1 comments

Wow - history of my life. Reading through my old blogs (and an old journal last night) I realize just how hard it is to be consistent with life. It's crazy! In the past 10 years I have had 2 children, unexpectedly had to return full-time to w... Read more

Pity Party

Thursday, May 31, 2012      0 comments

For all my personal research I have discovered that I have not only a gluten sensitivity and a dairy sensitivity but now soy is out too. Yikes! Just when I got used to reading labels for gluten and dairy/cassien I now have soy to worry about t... Read more

First Update - 2/11/12

Saturday, February 11, 2012      2 comments

One week down - here's how it's going: What I HAVE done: 1. I have tracked most days... I started out strong - tracking every day Saturday - Wednesday. Then life got crazy and I dropped it on Thursday and Friday. BUT - I was eating pr... Read more

February 2012

Saturday, February 04, 2012      2 comments

Well - I know I've been slacking off (not exercising, eating carelessly, etc.) but it really hit me when I was in a sushi restaraunt with my daugher 2 nights ago and I turned and looked at my reflection in the full-length window. WOW! UGH! My... 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      5 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      6 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
