Fixing my evenings and weekends

Thursday, March 22, 2012      4 comments

I've come to the conclusion that the last remaining difficulties on my wellness mission all revolve around my leisure time. I've tackled and subdued most of the other lifestyle problems that I've had over the years, so it's time to beat this one... Read more

About Hope

Friday, March 16, 2012      5 comments

One theme you'll see around Sparkpeople a lot is "hope". I think people often lose sight of what they actually mean by that word. If you mean "I hope I lose weight and get healthier" then you're actually talking about "wishful thinking" no... Read more

I'm a poorly controlled experiment :D

Wednesday, March 14, 2012      8 comments

So, I hit a plateau a while back. I looked over my spreadsheet where I've recorded my weekly weigh-ins since last June 28 and pondered my "snag". I hit 206 around November 16, then kept going slowly lower through December. Just after New Ye... Read more

Clothing Sizes are just GOOFY

Tuesday, February 28, 2012      7 comments

A friend from church passed along 4 huge bags of lovely clothes to me with the admonition to take what I can use and pass on the rest to someone else. I told her upfront that I wouldn't fit a size 14 for months yet, but, as long as she didn't m... Read more

Another Myth Bites the Dust!

Thursday, January 26, 2012      10 comments

People will bemoan the fact that a low-carb diet is "so much more expensive" than what they're currently doing. Wrong. I keep my financial information in a set of spreadsheet worksheets, which makes it very easy to analyze where your m... Read more

Gotta love the FlyLady!

Wednesday, January 11, 2012      6 comments

One of yesterday's FlyMail reminders dealt with forgiving our parents (moms in particular) for making us crazy/poor housekeepers/overweight/having bad self-esteem/etc. I would love to cut and paste the whole exchange but it's prohibited both by ... Read more

Reading Good Calories, Bad Calories

Monday, January 09, 2012      8 comments

...because you're worth it.

Saturday, November 19, 2011      3 comments

I'm painting my hallway and listening to my local classical music radio station (yes, I pledged!) and thinking about SparkFriends and SparkAcquaintances, and how many of them, male and female alike, have terrible self-esteem. And by that I ... Read more
