i just got back from a mini vacation. I planned my menus ahead of time as best as I could. I brought along my Shaklee smoothie mix and milk for breakfast and lunch. I like to make milk cubes so the smoothies are really cold and slushy without lo... Read more
deep dish pizza
A few days ago my husband suggested we have deep dish pizza for dinner. We have found a frozen one that is not too bad. My initial reaction was no way. I can't afford to eat that. But the more I thought about it, the more I wanted to have some. ... Read more
I think God is giving me a sign that I need to quit using my scale. I let it affect me way too much. Anyway, these last several weeks, when I weigh myself, I have noticed my scale to be a bit wacko. I have a habit of weighing myself more than on... Read more
one of those days...sigh
These past few days I have been doing very well on my plan. This morning I just want to bake, which I will not be doing!
So much going on in my life, but I will be strong.
I need to find a job and have not really worked outside of the home m... Read more
Well, last night we did end up going out to eat. Just as I had planned for, my husband did order that appetizer-bloomin onion. Yes, I know the thing is not in the least bit healthy, (although my husband tried to counter that fact...it being an o... Read more
Out to eat
My husband has decided he wants to go out to eat tonight again. He is very partial to steak and wants to go to his favorite restaurant. He wants me to be excited about this place too, but I am not a steak fan in the least. They have chicken item... Read more
Today started off as a good day. I am a walker, and do enjoy being able to walk outside. It has been such a cold and snowy winter here, (like so many places!) that I have not had a chance to walk outside since December! So I was very happy to ta... Read more

These last few days I have been having a hard time getting going on my walks. Maybe it is because I am tired of walk... Read more
getting back on track is so hard
I am so very frustrated. I was doing so well before I got hit with the nasty flu bug. I was not myself for about 5 days and didn't really feel like eating much.
When I finally felt like myself again, I did not jump right back into my healthy ... Read more
Anyone ever try to eat the kitchen sink?? :)
I know it is just an expression, but I really hate those days when that is exactly what I feel like doing...eat the kitchen sink! Today is one of those days. I just can't seem to get satisfied. It does not help that we are going out to eat tonig... Read more
Well, it happened. I woke up in the middle of the night on Thursday and just knew something was not right with my stomach :( :( My husband had the flu two days before and I tried so hard to be extra careful. Clean, clean, clean. Sanitize, sani... Read more
Well, I am happy to say my husband is much improved. Unfortunately, he still did not feel up to going out today, so we delayed our trip to visit with our children again. We will try for next week. In a way, it may have worked out best for us to ... Read more
Yesterday went well for me for both exercise and my food intake. I was a bit high on my sodium intake, but I know now what I need to do to adjust that.
I walked for over and hour and a half, shoveled snow and rode my bike for 25 minutes.

trying to stay focused today
Well , this was not a good weekend for me. I think it started on Valentine's day with going out to eat. I was prepared to be able to eat something a little more special than what I would usually order, but ended up getting a a chicken breast and... Read more
Our plan for the day totally changed. We were supposed to go see our two oldest children and do some errands in that area, but the plans fell through. So my husband decided he wants to take me out for Valentine's Day. He is really so sweet. He r... Read more
