More blogs=greater weight loss
Over the past couple of weeks, I have lost and gained the same 10 pounds 3 times over. That's a lot of fluctuating you might think, but for me it is pretty normal. My "lowest" number keeps getting a little bit lower each time, so I know I am mak... Read more
Salt is thine enemy and other ticked off ramblings.
I ate well yesterday right up until I got over-hungry after volleyball. We had friends over which was a blast, made ham steaks, maccaroni and corn on the cob. While this is NOT my usual diet, I had some of each with a side of tomatos. The ham st... Read more
Soon it becomes habit
Walked over to the soda cooler to get myself a diet mountain dew.
Put my change in.
Bent down and hit the water button. Damn!
I am both annoyed and proud of my reflex.
It truly does become habit if you do it often enough. ... Read more
Power of Perception
I am a very optimistic person by nature. I work hard, and I smile and wag my tail at everyone I meet. I am also in a very social job. I feel like I am surrounded by friendly people all the time and I enjoy it.
My sister on the other hand.... Read more
So hard to re-start after a bad weekend
Ever notice that if you eat well, you want to keep eating well. And if you fall off the wagon, it is SO DAMN HARD to get back on track again?
This past weekend I was on a perscription steroid and it really messed with my brain. And my eat... Read more
It is 4 in the afternoon, and I am forcing myself to type this out. Need.To.Conserve.Energy.
I have been on a steriod for my breathing since Wednesday. The first day I lost 4 pounds. I was psyched. The second day I gained 2 pounds, the thi... Read more
I haven't mentioned this in any of my recent blogs, but I have been working around a pretty consistent case of the "I can't breathes". Had no idea what it was so I went in to the doctor on Monday, and he asked if I was pregnant. No doc, but I h... Read more
Listen to Thy Body
I was talking to a guy at work today. He recently has been suffering from runners injuries. First it was his hip, now it has traveled down to his ankle. He said to me that he really just wants to give up, lay on the couch with his little white ... Read more
Food=Fuel. You wont get there by starving yourself.
For the past week I have really made an effort to eat every hour, if not ever couple of hours. An apple here, a cucumber there. My main diet has been sweet potatoes and bananas, actually. It really helps to track my food then too, so I can see ... Read more
Late night jaunt with my Mini Me
On Friday after taking family photos with some friends, my daughter and I decided to go for a late-night jog. We started out pretty fast, since she can run faster than I ca... Read more
Respect for the Big Top!
Do you remember going to the circus when you were young? I do. I remember the lights, and the elephants, and the pretty colored costumes. I always got a balloon and cotton candy which I inevitably made for sticky fingers and a stained shirt. I ... Read more
Last night I went to a Snap sanctioned volleyball night with my husband and we were there for about 3 hours. I only wrote in that we "played" for 30 minutes because we did a lot of standing around and talking as well. The kids got to play in the... Read more
I am NORMAL!
I have always known that I have a heavy frame. Usually when you tell people that though, they chalk it up to the "I'm big boned" or "it's baby fat" when you had your baby 6 years ago. I go to the doctor and they weigh me. I weigh in at 190 pound... Read more
Count Nutrition, not Calories
I read somewhere a small snipitt of advice, and it was to count nutrition, not calories. What a simple concept! Instead of worrying about my calories, I wanted to focus on eating for nutrition.
Well, last night my husband and I went on a d... Read more
Weekend from diet hell
This weekend my family went camping with some friends. Camping is always a downfall for me. I eat whatever I want, dinner is usually cooked over grease to keep it from sticking to the pans over the fire. Chips galore. and Smores until you throw... Read more
