I Won't Allow "What If"
Yesterday, I cleared away clothing (that is now too big) to put out for pickup today by a local charity. I've done this throughout my four years in this healthy lifestyle change, but this time, a small nagging thought started to creep in. "Wha... Read more
The Irony of My Confession
The other day, I poured my heart out, but forgot that my body often varies up to 6 lbs for no apparent reason. After talking about how I've overeaten healthy stuff, and getting back on track, I weighed myself again.
ONLY 4 LBS UNTIL GOAL!!... Read more
Cats Going On Carpets!!!! Why???
There is nothing new in diet or emotional situations to cause what I thought was an "accident" and now finding more of on the carpet. And why? Absolutely nothing going on. And the tough part is, when you have more than one cat, which one is t... Read more
Sparked My Optometrist
Over the weekend, I went for my eye checkup and my doc is great. Been going to him, like, forever.
We were talking about good health at one point and he said he eats healthy, but doesn't exercise. I explained to him the SP suggestion of d... Read more
GOAL SABOTAGE (NOT AN EASY BLOG TO WRITE)
It's very easy to write the blogs about progress or happy little gadgets like the Fitbit; it is NOT very easy to write about my backslides. However, before I continue, four years into this process, I am not as devastated as I once was when this... Read more

One Fitbit Week Equals 4 Badges
This Fitbit was the most fun b'day gift I got for myself. In the first week of use, I've earned 4 badges - just by doing what I normally do. It's fun and helpful in knowing what I'm doing and how it translates to miles and calories. I resiste... Read more
One Third of Americans...
...don't watch the Super Bowl game. If you do, enjoy! I enjoy empty freeways and a virtual ghost town to travel through with no crowds whatsoever since everyone else is watching the game.

Two Fitbit Missteps
Okay, two things that I've discovered about Fitbit:
-I thought it was reading the pedalling I was doing on the exercise bike, but last night I discovered that it's not. Disappointing since I do a lot of that.
-I noticed that the numbe... Read more
Fitbit Almost Went into The Wash
It's great that the Fitbit is so non-obtrusive, but the downside is that it's easy to forget it's there. I was falling asleep last night when I suddenly realized that I'd put my bra into the hamper to be washed today. I had to spring out of be... Read more
Comical Fitbit Thoughts
So here I am in, like, the 4th day of using this cool new Fitbit. And I caught myself with some thoughts that, if left unattended, could be absurd and ridiculous.
1. I forgot to put my Fitbit on, so there's no sense walking since it won't... Read more
"You've gotta try Nutella," she said.
I walked into my fave little grocery store (fresh and easy) to find strawberries on sale. My store friend (you know how you make friends by shopping regularly at a place) grabbed my arm and excitedly advised, "oooooh, you've just gotta try Nute... Read more
Enjoying the New Fitbit
Lest I mislead you with my last blog about being confused about my first day of Fitbit, let me clarify. As a non-tech person, it is VERY easy to set up. However, I just had a couple more "steps" to do in the set-up phase that I had missed. No... Read more

Confused after 1st Fitbit Day
What was disappointing was that, upon checking the Fitbit site and having used the dongle, only calories showed up. Not number of steps or miles. Why? I don't know. I was looking forward to a grand total.
It has already reset, so I can'... Read more
