Out of the Blue

Wednesday, January 05, 2011      8 comments

Building a Different Muscle

Tuesday, January 04, 2011      6 comments

I went to Books a Million to buy the new paperback, The Spark, for a friend. While I was there, I saw The Beck Diet Solution on sale for $5.95. The subtitle is something about learning to think like a thin person. I've seen quite a few people bo... Read more

I weighed less this morning than I did on November 20, 2010. I accomplished a No Gain Holiday! So I am celebrating. I'm going to reward myself by buying something I've been wanting a long time: a heart rate monitor. I'm going for the 2011 C... Read more

Enough for Now

Saturday, January 01, 2011      8 comments

I hoped to end 2010 with a profound analysis of my year and start 2011 with a compelling list of goals I'll achieve. Instead, let me just say I did good in 2010. And I'm going to do good in 2011, too. That's enough for now.... Read more

Found a New Food!!

Thursday, December 30, 2010      13 comments

Today I was thinking back over turning points in my journey to health and fitness. One time I became very aware that my attitude had changed when I found myself cutting back on my dear old overweight dog's portions. For years I had worried tha... Read more

Getting Better

Monday, December 27, 2010      4 comments

In 2010 I did a good job with exercise, averaging over 2 times per week strength training and 6 days per week of cardio. I plan to keep that up in 2011, but I have a strategy, not exactly new, to keep me motivated. I plan to track and improve ... Read more

Today is When the Rubber Hits the Road

Sunday, December 26, 2010      9 comments

Today is the day after Christmas, the day after a day of indulgence. I enjoyed every bite -- even the fudge -- especially the fudge. I enjoyed cooking big and I enjoyed sharing the whole meal with my loved ones. By my historical standards, it wa... Read more

Christmas Interlude

Saturday, December 25, 2010      6 comments

Merry Christmas!! I'm cooking up a storm and indulging a bit, but think I'm really in control. We'll see. Our biggest laugh so far was Natalie trying to jump rope. She had the jumping down. In fact she was frantically jumping, waving the ro... Read more
