encouragement

Monday, December 29, 2008      1 comments

Every time I put on another pair of pants or jeans that didn't fit in November, I am encouraged. I have not failed. In fact, I planned this all quite carefully. Start the plan on 12/1. Give myself a little break during the holidays, see ... Read more

Motivation

Monday, December 15, 2008      1 comments

Day 15 When I started Phase I on 12/1, I wasn't sure I'd make it this far. After all, I've started and stopped more times than I can count this year. And of course each time I've had that built in failure plan. But this time was differen... Read more

Who diets during the holidays?? Ok, maybe I'm a total idiot, but I'm trying realllllly hard NOT to ever see 300 on the scale. It's bad enough that I'm at my all time personal high. Enough is enough and I'm tired of... ... taking daily meds ... Read more

Rewind to Wednesday. There I am in the grocery store, shopping for a decent, inexpensive piece of salmon to feed three for lunch. Starving! I am absolutely starving. Hmmm... what can I grab? I have this thought somewhere around the ... Read more

Tough decisions

Saturday, May 31, 2008      5 comments

We finally hired a dog trainer to see if we could get this high strung, super aggressive beast under control. He's mean about 70% of the time, biting, snarling, grumpy... there's a long list of people he's bitten, at least 3 of them under the a... Read more

Weight Watchers Yogurt

Tuesday, May 27, 2008      3 comments

So I've been trying all the new Weight Watchers products on the market and stumbled across the yogurt recently. "Hmmm," I thought. "The same 100 calories as Yoplait light, but it's got some added fiber? Oh AND it's on sale! OK, I'll try anyt... Read more

Random SP Rant

Tuesday, March 25, 2008      4 comments

I've been spending a lot more time recently on sparkrecipes, looking for new and interesting things to make with the same old stuff. And I have to ask... What happened to "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."... Read more

This worked for me before. I'm going back to South Beach. It used to freak me out that I had to cut out ALL fruits for TWO WEEKS! THE HORROR!!! Cause I really like fruit! But then I read the program again. Two weeks is not a terrib... Read more

Proud of Me

Saturday, September 08, 2007      0 comments

It's already difficult enough to eat right with my crazy schedule. It's even more difficult now that I'm practically a vegetarian. Dinner last night? Pizza fries. Yum! But bad... so so bad for me. My options were pretty severely limite... Read more
