iSpark isn't easy!

Thursday, December 22, 2011      6 comments

Stuck at the airport for many hours, still two more before we depart, assuming the plane doesn't end up even later. Doing Spark on my iPhone, which is a slow and clunky process. But hey, it's not like I'm going anywhere!... Read more

Sore!

Tuesday, December 20, 2011      5 comments

I worked out extra-hard yesterday, and wow am I feeling it today. It's time for me to go do my workout, and my body is not extracting itself from this couch with any alacrity. But hey, if we only work out on the days when it's easy, pretty ... Read more

Pass the potatoes, PLEASE!!!!!

Monday, December 19, 2011      8 comments

I've seen a few blog entries around here from people who are dreading the Christmas dinners their families put on, and instead are bringing their own food and intending to eat it in a kind of Christmas dinner solitary confinement Now, I hav... Read more

Heading into the holiday weeks

Monday, December 19, 2011      3 comments

I'm boggled that Christmas is next Sunday. How did that happen?! I am excited for family visiting, and sort of relieved that there is not much of a tradition of holiday baking and gobs of rich food with hubby's family. I am determined to get in ... Read more

Snow!

Saturday, December 17, 2011      9 comments

Today we are having "movie snow." It's just beautiful out. I am, of course, glad that I don't have to go out in it, but it's really pretty.... Read more

Whiplash

Friday, December 16, 2011      5 comments

Yesterday morning as I was dressing for work, I pulled on a sweater that, the last time I wore it, was too tight. But now it fits comfortably again. That made me feel good. Then yesterday evening hubs and I broke out the new Dance Central 2... Read more

Grocery store on an empty stomach, and yet success!

Thursday, December 15, 2011      6 comments

I got in my workout this morning, but was running late, so ran out of the house without more than a glass of milk. I had to run around downtown, visiting three different courthouses, then make three other stops. The final one was the grocery sto... Read more

Following Michael Pollan

Wednesday, December 14, 2011      4 comments

If you haven't read any of Michael Pollan's books, you should. In particular, I recommend "In Defense of Food." Pollan's thesis is that much of our health problems stem from eating artificially created foods and highly processed foods, and that ... Read more

Procrastination is a beast

Monday, December 12, 2011      6 comments

I didn't manage to work out this weekend. I get it done all week, because I have to do it before I sit down and start working, but on the weekends I can "do it anytime today" and then suddenly the day is over and I haven't. This is a challe... Read more

So that's what hunger feels like

Sunday, December 11, 2011      4 comments

After years of overfeeding myself continually, I sort of regarded hunger as something I barely felt. Now that I'm eating the right amounts of food, though, I am definitely experiencing it more often. And discovering that ignoring it isn't v... Read more

Birthday party success!

Saturday, December 10, 2011      3 comments

It used to be that going to parties was all about the snack table. Tonight, though, I went to a party and my focus was on the people and the conversation, rather than browsing the buffet. And I enjoyed it more!... Read more

Lie to me

Friday, December 09, 2011      5 comments

The amusing thing about working out is how much time I spend lying to myself. "Just get through one set. I won't make you do the second set. It'll be fine." "You don't have to do the WHOLE lower body strength routine. Just do these cou... Read more

Aha!

Thursday, December 08, 2011      4 comments

Apparently much of what I was miserifying about can be chalked up to...lady problems, shall we say? As I get further into this perimenopausal state, I'm definitely being impacted by the monthly hormonal swing much more dramatically than I have b... Read more

Wednesday woes

Wednesday, December 07, 2011      1 comments

Well, the bad eating has caught up to me in the form of the scale inching up 5 pounds. But my period is due, so I'm not getting panicky about it, just determined to get back on track. Which meant that I got myself downstairs and did both my... Read more
