Fast Food Is Not My Friend
Wednesday, June 16, 2010      2 comments

My middle son and I were out and about at lunch time and I thought it would be a nice treat to sit and have a one on one lunch. Great idea. The bacon cheeseburger, fries and rootbeer? Not such a great idea. I came home and plugged this i... Read more
Motivation in a football song
Monday, June 14, 2010      0 comments

Since it's World Cup time, I've been hitting the fussball song playlist a bit. I rediscovered one that I liked. I get knocked down. I get up again. You're never gonna keep me down. That just has to be my theme here. I'm not going t... Read more

It never got terribly cold where we live, but we now seem to be headed into the spring rains. Hopefully, that will mean that cherry blossoms and warm weather is right around the corner. For March, my goals (and how I plan to facilitate meet... Read more
This is How I Got Fat
Sunday, February 14, 2010      4 comments

I've been pretty good with food for the last week. I've gone over target a couple days, but typically by only a couple hundred calories. Yesterday I ate the way I used to. French toast for breakfast, a heavy lunch of leftovers and then a big d... Read more
Good Week Back
Thursday, February 11, 2010      0 comments

I've had a good week at taking consistent little steps. A week of drinking lots of water, where before I normally only drank coffee or diet coke. A week with several workouts, including a 10 000 step day. A week where I not only ate sensibly ... Read more
Irresistible Indulgence
Tuesday, February 09, 2010      3 comments

Nestled in between the Spark People emails was an email from Betty Crocker with the subject line of "Chocolate. Carmel. Fudge. Oh my." Oh my, indeed. I think I gained a little just looking at the pictures. With adjectives like irresistib... Read more
Not just about health, I want to LOOK good.
Monday, February 08, 2010      4 comments

I was thinking about why I want to lose weight and become fit. It isn't just for health reasons. I have to be totally honest, there is more than a little bit of vanity in play too. I was reading a team post about a lady whose weight track... Read more
Not Much of a Roll
Friday, February 05, 2010      2 comments

Haven't been on an effective roll of working out much. I did get several workouts in over Christmas while inlaws were visiting. But I haven't been consistent in a routine of getting out of bed and moving right to the weight bench. I need to b... Read more
Time Flies

I would have sworn that it had only been a couple of weeks since I'd worked out. I know that every morning I've said that tomorrow would be the day I rolled out of bed and got a good one in. Well, I finally did pull out the weights and the be... Read more
Why Lose Weight
Wednesday, May 27, 2009      3 comments

I can look at my mom and her sisters and even my grandmother and see a chain of women who got heavier and less active as they got older. I can also look at my mother in law and her mom and see women who stayed active and fit despite getting old... Read more

I've been drinking a ton of water. Easily getting eight glasses a day and then some. It has been getting easier each day and I am still thirsty at the end of the day. I'm also having more than a little success with retraining my taste for... Read more
Lots of Walking
Tuesday, May 19, 2009      0 comments

It is easy for me to spend all day in the apartment, especially with homeschooling. Or to have the only time we head out be when one of the kids has an activity. And I'm not really excited about driving here. It is something that I need to m... Read more
