It's Go Time (Day 1 of the challenge)

Wednesday, September 07, 2011      8 comments

Day 1 of the BLC Focused Challenge and I am feeling good from where I am. I brought my resistance band to work AND used it. :) I am going to look for more exercises to do with them, but I can tell already that my arms are getting a work out. I'... Read more

Stepping Off

Monday, September 05, 2011      9 comments

A little last minute chilling - Monday night (the holiday) rolling into Tuesday. Wow. Summer is over and it is time to start anew. Summer hours are now kaput, and it means longer hours for me. This week, I am in until 6pm, at best, I... Read more

Trash Talk

Thursday, September 01, 2011      21 comments

There are cupcakes sitting in the trash. Right on top. They are "barely" past their prime. Even though I had to f-o-r-c-e my DH to toss out boxes of Uncle Ben's Mexican Fiesta rice that we moved with (6 YEARS ago!!!), he tossed a box of c... Read more

Meal Planning

Monday, August 29, 2011      7 comments

I found a couple of recipes I am going to try this week (namely tomorrow) and keep the food on hand for the week. I am thinking that I need to prep my food for thr week on Sat mornings and possibly one weeknight. I've been flying by the seat of ... Read more

Spark Cookbooks

Saturday, August 27, 2011      4 comments

Do you have a Spark Cookbook? Please tell me the name so I can fine it and share in some of your good ideas! I have amassed Mick's Picks 2 - and have made a couple of things. I should try to remember to go back and rate things. What a... Read more

Prep and Planning

Friday, August 26, 2011      7 comments

Most of all the local chatter has been about preparation and planning for Irene's arrival. I had to do a little heavy lifting at work to get computers (and ticket stock) off the floor just in case water made its way into my office. Hopefully, it... Read more

Dear Couch Potato

Wednesday, August 24, 2011      11 comments

Do you remember when you pulled your hamstring and you had to crawl up the stairs to your bedroom because it was on the same level as the bathroom? Do you remember being in the hospital with the doctor telling you to your face that there was not... Read more

Movement in the Right Direction

Tuesday, August 23, 2011      10 comments

I was a bit stressed going to a meeting today. I was pleasantly surprised on my walk over there (about 10-15 mins from my building) that the walk seemed less strenuous today. I am pretty sure it also took me less time to walk over even though I ... Read more

This or That

Friday, August 19, 2011      12 comments

I am driven by anxiety. I have tons of it and more, especially when I am not exercising. I am finally getting over some pulled back muscles and hoping to boot the DH out of the living room tonight so I can do my new Zumba Wii disc that just arri... Read more

No Magic Elixir

Tuesday, August 16, 2011      13 comments

The more I do to benefit myself and live mindfully, the easier it is to see that there is no magic elixir. It is simply living as if everything I do matters. There are consequences. The trick is to make the most of your choices, so that th... Read more

Changes in Action

Sunday, August 14, 2011      12 comments

It is thrilling when I see the positive steps I am taking actually make a difference. I willed myself not to eat after dinner last night, and the resulting payoff was a pre-breakfast 93 blood sugar reading this morning. That is awesom... Read more

Stopping and Thinking First

Saturday, August 13, 2011      13 comments

We're on the tail end of our vacation, even though we have traveled home already. We went to a restaurant that we really liked that just came to our neck of the woods. They had many things on the menu that fall into my trigger zone, and indeed, ... Read more

Beware of the Maltitol

Friday, August 12, 2011      5 comments

I knew better. Truly. I was just not paying attention to the label, and I polished off the remaining sugar free caramel popcorn in the bag. Calorie-wise, it could have been much worse, but stomach wise, digestion-wise, and pardon-me, gas-wise, o... Read more

No One Cheers When You Go Back to Bed

Sunday, August 07, 2011      15 comments

This morning, (in the words of my DH), I stalled. Like a motor puttering along. I could not quite decide if I was going to slip back to bed, or stay on my tight timetable and get up and go lift weights. I hesitated. It would have been mome... Read more

Operation Go Me

Friday, August 05, 2011      11 comments

I read someone's blog recently about a cheating hubby and it put me in a dark frame of mind. While I did not get cheated on per say, I did have that sense of loss and betrayal. It's behind me now, and it happened over a year ago, and I was very ... Read more
