Emotional Eating 101
If I ever had any doubts that a lot of my overeating is emotionally based, this week is demonstrating it to the max. What I am noticing is that I am not only not overeating, but I'm not really all that hungry. I was going to make vegetable bee... Read more
Reporting from vacation
Ahhhhh. I know I was off for the weekend as well, but this is the first morning I woke up and thought--I really don't have to go to work today!!! I have great plans for my time off (about six months' worth to stuff into a week), and I have to ... Read more
Eating at McDonald's
Yep, I just finished eating at McDonald's. I'd like to tell you that it is an abberation, but I have been totally off track for the last couple weeks again. Part of it is busyness. The lack of exercise is due to physical ailments.
Afte... Read more
Guess it frees up my Mondays at least.
I know I disappeared for a good week there. No problem, just really busy. First of all, I have just plain overcommitted. Things will calm down in about three months, but for right now I have more going on than I have time.
Last week, t... Read more
Feels much more like Missouri today.
It has finally rained for an entire day!! I wish our neighbors to the south hadn't had to take such a beating for it to happen, but in the wake Isaac it has actually been raining most of the day here. I walked out of work into air that felt li... Read more
Week 2, gaining control of my life
I'm well into week 2 of my restart, and only one fairly minor slip. In fact, I need to get in an additional 200-300 calories by tonight, and I've already eaten dinner. The only slip was a McDonald's bacon, egg and cheese biscuit on Monday morn... Read more
Made it through a whole day. So proud of myself!!
I've gotten through this entire day without spending a dime, and especially not spending that dime on food I didn't need.
I started this morning by taking a fruit smoothie with me when I left home for breakfast, then left my wallet in the... Read more
Thinking about goals and how to stick to them again
I just realized that it has been TWO WEEKS since I last posted a blog. Time to catch up with myself. When I last talked to you, I was concerned about retirement and realizing that I spend way too much money on restaurants, and I had gotten new... Read more
501 Hey, I put some new shoes on.... 276
It's ridiculous how much I have spent on shoes in the last few months. First there were the fancy running shoes, now four pairs of steet shoes (actually, 2 pairs of shoes and 2 of sandals) that cost just as much for each pair. Even more ridicu... Read more
The week that was
I've done a lot better this last week than I had been doing. Got to the gym several times, and while I haven't precisely eaten well, I have kept it down to a dull roar.
Went to the podiatrist last week (I blogged about that), and he said... Read more
Finding a balance
It is always hard for me to find a balance. Enough time with friends and family and enough "me" time. Time enough for the work I need to do around the house, and time for fitness and cooking and eating right.
Then there is today. Did a... Read more
My first anniversary
Yesterday was my one year anniversary since really setting out to "do" SparkPeople. I am annoyed with myself that I have not only lost more weight, but have actually regained about 10 pounds that I had lost by last winter. That is really the o... Read more
What a relief!!
Have had a day of excellent news today. First, I went to the podiatrist. My doctor had thought I might need surgery on my right foot. The podiatrist says it isn't that bad yet, and all I need is different shoes. That I can live with. Instea... Read more
my computer is well, and I'm back
Turns out my computer had a virus. Only one, but it was a doozey. So, $50 later, I'm back on line. For reasons that escape me, they reset my home page to bing (I have now reset it to SparkPeople) and they changed my screen background to this ... Read more
Maybe I should change my name to Sisyphus?
I just finished reading Deborah's (Lunadragon's) blog about being in neutral, and I got thinking about how hard it is to keep trying to push myself up the hill of health.
Remember Sisyphus? He was the guy in Greek mythology who was sentenc... Read more
