Grocery shopping: do it alone

Friday, April 24, 2015      2 comments

About three times per month I drive to Yorkton to buy some groceries at the Canadian Superstore and run some other errands, usually at Value Village and Dad's Organic Market. It's an hour drive from where I live which I'm willing to make, becaus... Read more

A rainbow of goals

Thursday, April 23, 2015      2 comments

I think one of the main reasons people will "fail" with their weight loss plan is because they only set one goal: losing weight. Losing 10 pounds is one of my goals. It was the first one that came to my mind - but right now it feels more like ... Read more

Push yourself

Wednesday, April 22, 2015      3 comments

I probably blog too much here. LOL I think I mostly use it more as a journal for myself than as a way of sharing stuff, but whatever. I'll try to keep my entries shorter in the future :P This morning I fought with myself. A lot. I finished ... Read more

Yesterday I finished reading the book/essay on happiness I'd been reading for two weeks. I always read really fast, but for this one I had to go slow because I was taking regular pauses to think about what I just read. So this morning I sta... Read more

Newfound balance, or the art of calming down

Sunday, April 19, 2015      3 comments

Outside of the circumstances, this weekend was a GREAT weekend. Friday night I made a huge shepherd's pie - I had too much and had to separate between two dishes; I froze one of them, we had half of one for supper and I put the other half i... Read more

Variables, part two

Friday, April 17, 2015      3 comments

Why you gotta take all variables into consideration

Tuesday, April 14, 2015      4 comments

A simple way to explain weight loss is mathematics. More calories in than calories out and you gain weight; more calories out than calories in and you lose weight. Of course a LOT of things come into consideration in this equation. Your BMR, y... Read more

Wobbly limbs

Friday, April 10, 2015      5 comments

Ugh, I'm out of shape. It's like my mind likes to think I'm in the same shape as when I was regularly going to the gym. I came to really dislike the gym for multiple reasons and I don't go anymore, but back in 2014 when I was still going, e... Read more

The Last Ten Pounds Plan

Thursday, April 09, 2015      6 comments

When it comes to sharing health/weight loss/fitness goals with people I'm an extreme or another; here on SparkPeople I don't mind at all, I share a lot and I never think about what people could think/say about me; and in the "real world" I never... Read more
