Pass the potatoes, PLEASE!!!!!
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
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
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
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!
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
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
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
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!
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
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
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
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
Neither hubs nor I wanted the weekend to end, so we both stayed up too late, then couldn't sleep, and so I'm 3 hours late getting up. On the plus side, it means I got my 8 hours. But it also means I'm in my wake-up-with-Spark phase when I should... Read more
A weekend off from working
I finished a humungous work contract on Friday, and decided that I would not, under any circumstances, be doing any work this weekend. It's been quite lovely.... Read more
Commitment in the fridge
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
