Disappointed & Determined
Well - my last blog was about my returning to school 2-1/2 months ago, and how I was worried that I would not make good food choices. Well, my fears were realized and I have hit a high since my 30+ pound weight loss a year and a half ago... 168... Read more
Shopping & the start of School
1. I went "shopping" today - I'm pretty pleased. I bought 3 complete outfits (skirt or pants + top) + 3 more tops + 2 pairs of dress shoes for about $55. I went to the ARC (like the GoodWill) and found practically brand new stuff for $7 and u... Read more
Feeling pretty good...
I over-did my calories today
And sodium. Bad choice in dinner. Well, it was not HORRIBLY un-clean, at ... Read more
On a roll!
Granted, I did have a stomach virus this week which meant I ate precious little one day & a little more than that the 2nd day, but I did lose 2+ pounds this week and I doubt that it was ALL due to the virus. Some, okay, but my hard work is payi... Read more

There will always be an excuse
to mess up. Last week it was my kids' birthdays... had to celebrate, right? Last night it was our anniversary (we were offered free food at many a place). I did okay last week, overall, but I was a little bit disappointed that it wasn't bette... Read more

For Clara's birthday today, I'm getting back in gear (again) - I wonder how many blogs I've written like that! But enough is enough. Here are my new goals for the remainder of JUNE...

I'm glad I can't count all the times I've gotten back to this game - the game of living healthy. I say "game" not because I don't take it seriously... au contraire! I say game because I win and I lose, I play strategically and I fly by the sea... Read more
How many times can you
a rehtorical question, really. I am realizing that I've been "back" to sparking, clean eating, exercise, etc. multiple times. But I guess you get back on the wagon as many times as you fall off... right?

Coming to grips
So I finally faced my demon face to face: I admitted to myself, to my husband, and to several close friends that I am struggling once again with depression. I've been diagnosed with depression 3 times. Each time I didn't realize it until I'd ... Read more
2 days down
Clean eating in control all day today and yesterday. I weighed in yesterday at 157 pounds UGH! That's up 8 pounds from my lightest weight (in April or so last year). I think that was the kick in the pants I need.
Last summer I saw a wom... Read more
