Just a quick one while I finish breakfast. In a few minutes I'm off to Body Pump, and then I'm meeting my mom for lunch at a little bakery in Brookline Village. I can't believe it's the last day of February vacation already!
Yesterday I jus... Read more
On February 18, 2012 I decided to start a plan/diet/challenge to myself/whatever with one rule: stick with 2,400 calories or less per day. I decided it would be a six-week challenge so that the last day would coincide with my husband's 30th bir... Read more
Hubs and I just watched the documentary Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. It was well done and inspiring! My only complaint is that it sometimes came off as a big infomercial for juicing machines. Oh, and that it doesn't really seem like a juice "fast" i... Read more

If I'd kept all the rules about what I wasn't allowed to do, I would broken all of them by now, I think. Last night we went to Legal Seafoods and I had baked scrod, and then due to peer pressure we went to a bar where I had a Coors Light. Accor... Read more
I just decided this morning that my new plan will stay in effect until March 31, 2012. That is my hubby's 30th birthday party (yes, he is four years younger than I am!) and we're having a party that day at our house, when the house will be in an... Read more
Today, for the first time in a long time, I tracked all my calories. And as of right now I'm well within my range. Of course it's not even 5:30 P.M. yet and we're going to the gym tonight. However, if I'm hungry later tonight I'll have somethi... Read more

I apologize for stealing the blog title. I've seen the exact same title on others' blogs recently, and I agree! What I really want to write about is something more like, "My calorie intake seems to have differing impacts on my weight gain/loss... Read more
