Devastated... but still Hopeful
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...
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???
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???
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...
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
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!
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
When exactly is "rock bottom"?
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
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!)
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
1. I have felt GOOD (not okay, but GOOD) for about 5 days straight! Last gluten contamination w... Read more
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
