Sigh. Mixed. My weight is dropping. But I feel lucky. I haven't perfectly tracked yet, but I am doing better. Last night I weighed things for the first time in many days. But I didn't weigh everything, like the sweet potatoes, lima beans, ... Read more
[For context, I'm focusing on two habits, changes, etc., right now: one that supports my getting leaner and one that supports my building a better sleep habit.]
I'm tweaking my plan a little. I was focused on my bedtime, but realized I sho... Read more
I'm feeling some momentum now, some focus, some stride. It's good! And it's showing in the scale already. My sleep really sucks. :-/ But baby steps. I'm working on it! It's just much more slowly, at a more achievable pace. I'll get there... Read more
What went well:
I stopped eating Christmas stocking snacks before finishing the bag when I thought about what I was doing. (They were super high in calories.)
I ate good food (beans, sweet potatoes, kale, sunflower... Read more
It would be nice if these blogs were to support HTML tables. I have been writing in a Google doc my own breakdown of what went wrong and what went right during the previous day, and I'd like to post them here, but they contain basic HTML tables... Read more
I'm hopefully at the tail end of a cold and feeling better.

Does that mean I am going to fail or backslide at those other things? No! But it means that... Read more

I thought it would be helpful to post a list of the eating opportunities I want to have a plan for during the next several weeks.
((writing them down below))
Oh good lord that's a lot of eating opportunities, seeing them all listed lik... Read more
I'm struggling still! I've had lots going on in life, in my exercise routine, in my nutritional system, etc. But I think I finally have a plan down. Now all I have to worry about are all of these holiday-relate... Read more
