Commitment in the fridge

Thursday, December 01, 2011      4 comments

I grew up in a family where the only vegetables were canned, and the only leafy greens was iceberg lettuce. So I'm still struggling wit getting more fresh veg and leaves into my life. Today and the grocery store, I decided that I'd just ta... Read more

December

Thursday, December 01, 2011      2 comments

At last hubby can't resist the Christmas movies anymore! We aren't going to be home for Christmas, so no tree for us, and I have a huge project at work so probably not going to decorate. But Christmas movies always put me in the mood.... Read more

Stumbles don't have to be falls

Wednesday, November 30, 2011      4 comments

I missed my Monday workout. I couldn't sleep Sunday night, so didn't get up early enough on Minday, and the whole day was filled with work and then company in the evening. Then Tuesday morning I overslept because I'd forgotten to set my ala... Read more

Why I hate The Biggest Loser - and why you should, too

Imagine a TV program whose contestants were grieving widows trying to get over the loss of a spouse. Imaging that program included a host who screamed into a widow's face that she were disgusting and unworthy and weak-willed, that she should jus... Read more

12 years of marriage, better than ever

Saturday, November 26, 2011      3 comments

Hubby 2.0 (an excellent upgrade) and I are celebrating our 12th wedding anniversary. Now, our actual anniversary was back in September, but the autumn was so busy that we never got a chance to celebrate. This weekend, which was supposed to be fi... Read more

Being good makes me want to be bad

Friday, November 25, 2011      5 comments

I was very good for Thanksgiving. I worked out, I ate within my calorie allowance. I've never worked out on holidays in the past so I felt very smug. But today I want to skip my workout and stuff myself on chocolate. It's not that I fe... Read more

What just happened???!!

Thursday, November 24, 2011      3 comments

Sat down to Thanksgiving dinner. Filled my plate with reasonable portions of all the goodies. "This is good," I thought. "If I only eat this much, I won't be too far off my food plan." Ate about a quarter of what was on my plate and realiz... Read more

Thankful for $2,000 in car repair

Thursday, November 24, 2011      4 comments

Isn't that an odd thing to sound thankful for? But I am. You see, we had intended to make a 1,600 mile roundtrip journey for Thanksgiving this year. And if we had done that without getting the car into the shop, our driveshaft might well have fa... Read more

Thanksgiving is saved!

Wednesday, November 23, 2011      1 comments

The car was done at 5:30, which meant going to the grocery store at 6pm, but the store had lots of checkers working so even though it was crazy-busy, the line was actually pretty fast. The bird is now brining overnight and in the morning we will... Read more

Thanksgiving dinner may be meatloaf

Wednesday, November 23, 2011      5 comments

This has been a challenging Thanksgiving season. First, we had to cancel our travel plans and are staying home, just the two of us, for Thanksgiving. "But that's okay," we said, "we can finally celebrate our anniversary, get a hotel for one nigh... Read more

TV as a fitness aid

Sunday, November 20, 2011      3 comments

This weekend is being spent deep in work mode - a computer project that requires much concentration. I used to use this project, which happens every November, as an excuse for junk food - "It's so boring, I deserve a snack to keep me going." Bu... Read more

Your support has paid off!

Last week I was feeling kind of blue that the scale wasn't changing. Well, I stepped in it this morning and was down 4 and a half pounds!! Thanks so much everyone for encouraging me to stick with it! I have a long way to go, but at least I feel ... Read more

Greek for me

Friday, November 18, 2011      4 comments

I have a client who owns a Greek restaurant, and I can never go in there without coming out with a TON of food - she insists on feeding me! Yesterday it was a dozen spanikopita, 5 cabbage rolls, and three stuffed peppers! Fortunately, I had comp... Read more

Obstacle course

Tuesday, November 15, 2011      1 comments

That's what my life has been the last few weeks! First travel, then a really dreadful chest virus that had me coughing up a lung when I did more than climb up the stairs, now a UTI. I'm kind of frustrated with the piling on. But I'm still watchi... Read more

Embracing the dark of the year

Friday, November 11, 2011      4 comments

The last couple days have not been good ones for me, and I think I need a change in attitude. As we move toward Yule, it's easy to fall into the pattern of wanting to hibernate and then being mad at myself for being "lazy." I'm going to try a ne... Read more
