New Years Resolutions: dreadful things!
Monday, December 26, 2011      4 comments

It's that time of year when everyone gets ready to start a fresh new year by setting themselves up for failure: "I'm not going to eat sweets" or "I'm going to work out for two hours every single day" or "I'm never going to eat more than 1200 cal... Read more
You're not going to like this, but sometimes that's my (self -appointed) job

I love Spark People, but there are times when reading the message boards and blog posts makes me intensely sad. Because I see people completely ignoring the message of Spark People and continuing to make the terrible mistakes the the multi-billi... Read more
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

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

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

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

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

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
