The longer I adhere to my healthy habits, the more I can really make better choices for myself. I am no longer in that "fog of addiction" that keeps me from being able to read the signs my body is giving me. I religiously track every bite of f... Read more

Well, here's something to learn by. I didn't go to the grocery store yesterday like I should. I was going to use our little building cafe this morning to get some bacon and boiled eggs. I go upstairs and they are NOT selling cooked food any l... Read more

Well, I was going to swim today, but I can't find my pool key. Foodles. That means I'll have to get another one from the HOA office and they will charge me $35.00 to replace it. Pooh. The weather is beautiful, though, so I think I'll take Li... Read more

Thursday, May 31, 2012      4 comments

LONG tiring meeting today. One of those situations where you have to be "on" the entire day. No worries. I ate at the hotel for the free breakfast - no problems because they had eggs and sausage (protein!) and I really have no problem with po... Read more

Did great today. I don't worry so much about eating out anymore, because I use the Sparkpeople phone app to plan what I eat at most restaurants. HOWEVER, I get to this rural NC county I'm in and guess what? Yep, NO INTERNET CONNECTION ON MY P... Read more

Normally my job requires LOTS of travel and I'd be out of the office for two weeks of every month, AND at least an additional overnight in the off weeks. We have been reassigned to other tasks due to some Press coverage and I'm now doing Child ... Read more

Thank you to those who have given all. This day is bittersweet for me, since my son is a Sargent in the United States Army. I don't ever like to think about those that die in service to our country, because that is a mother's greatest fear. B... Read more

That means NO CHANGES. No "it's the weekend so I'll just cheat a little" or "I deserve a rest" kind of thinking. THIS IS A LIFESTYLE CHANGE. My life doesn't stop on the weekends - in fact, there is MORE TIME to do healthy and fit things AND g... Read more
