Too late to edit the previous entry so I'll make a new one. :)
Today I am traveling. I left the house at 4:45am for the airport and then the flight was delayed, causing me to miss my connecting flight. So I'm spending the night in Denver at... Read more
In the hotel I've been taking the stairs instead of the elevator. I'm on the fourth floor. Three flights of stairs is easy, and the fourth gets my heart pumping and lungs working. Compare that to one flight of stairs four months ago!

I'm so happy that it's finally cold enough to want to make soups! After a week of not eating well, I have been cooking up some healthy foods for the week to come.
Canja de Galinha - Brazilian chicken soup
This is one of my favorites. He... Read more
Thaks to everyone who sent me sympathy, goodies, comments and kind thoughts. The kindness was very much appreciated.
The past week was a total loss as far as diet and exercise. I started out depressed, then I lost the key to my bike locker ... Read more
Today I received word that one of my loved ones in Brazil was killed in a freak car accident. I am feeling terrible and shocked. I just want to hide in my room and cry all day.
It will be a real challenge to eat properly and exercise today... Read more
I want to share an awesome tip I found on another website (sorry, I don't remember which site). I love to cook in large batches, so this is perfect for me.

Not only did I not GAIN weight over Thanksgiving, I was shocked to see this morning that I had actually LOST a pound over the four day trip even though I felt like I ate a ton of heavy food. "Playing with kids" is in the fitness tracker for 513 ... Read more
The wifi on my laptop is dead. Dead dead very dead. Which means, I will be traveling over the Thanksgiving holiday with NO SP FOOD TRACKER. (Not to mention being off my regular exercise routine.)
I hope I have got the hang of this food moni... Read more
Well, it's Friday and although I have not gained any weight this week, I haven't lost any either.
I had several days of eating not as well as before, and it appears to me that substituting less healthy foods (such as pie) even if I stay in... Read more
Yesterday was not my most successful diet day, but it was definitely a learning experience.
In the morning at work "breakfast" was a variety of cold cuts, cheeses, croissants, grapes, and two kinds of cake. I should have turned around and ... Read more
