    5/30/2015 7:58:15 PM, by CANYON_GAL

    Wanted to post my weight so I could look back later and know what I weighed before I moved to South Dakota, next Friday. I got a bit disappointed that I only lost 9 pounds total this year. But, as I was looking through my blogs I posted here on sparkpeople I found my New Years blog and realized... Read more

  • Pegan?

    5/29/2015 2:53:38 PM, by CANYON_GAL

    This week I found an article about a new diet (or at least it was new to me) about the Pegan diet. Have any of you heard of it and tried it? It's a combination of the Vegan + Paleo diets. Almost seems to be an oxymoron idea, but Dr Mark Hyman says it's a healthy approach to eating. I guess you ... Read more

  • Sorry long time no see

    5/23/2015 11:40:36 AM, by POCKETFULOFSUN

    I have some great news, and a totally legit excuse for being a lazy person who doesn't track food consistently. Since November I have been cooking up a baby, we are expecting our little one in August! We don't want to know the sex of baby pocketfulofsun so everything is green. Yay! I love green any...

  • Moving Again

    5/22/2015 8:53:49 PM, by CANYON_GAL

    I got a Summer job at Mt Rushmore. Yup, I will be flying out to South Dakota on June 5th. It's about 2 weeks away and I need to figure out what to pack in my 1 carry-on luggage. I have never been to the Dakota's before, so this will be a nice switch from the dry hot desert of the Southwest. I... Read more

  • 2 Weeks Post W17

    5/21/2015 6:52:29 PM, by MAYA_ANGEL

    It's about 2 weeks now post giving up on the W30 on day 17. I am happy to announce that it really did change my sugar-eating and nightly glass of a wine habit. The new rule is No Chocolate or Wine in the house, but I am allowed to eat/drink it socially. Instead of nightly wine, I have a nightly ... Read more

  • unwind from stress in a healthy way

    5/18/2015 9:45:36 PM, by OLDEROWL

    Don't stress yourself out by trying to change others. Learn that two people seldom respond to the same situation in the same manner, and the right approach is never confined to your own way. Don't fret over things that you can't change, learn to live with them. Life always includes some things th... Read more

  • Focus on what you can add to your life

    5/15/2015 2:17:30 PM, by MAYA_ANGEL

    From Mind Body Green today..... wise words: Focus on what you can add to your life — not what you "should" subtract. This advice is often given for changing dietary habits: instead of cutting out certain foods (and thus feeling deprived), it's easier to start adding healthy foods. The id... Read more

  • Rest of My Life, Day 1!

    5/9/2015 12:04:53 PM, by MAYA_ANGEL

    It's over, Baby! Woke up well rested after a 24 hr bout with real fatigue and decided the whole thing is over for me. Couldn't make it to Day 30. Wasn't feeling it anymore. You know the call to stop came from my inner voice, my intuition. I just knew I wasn't feeling right anymore. I fel... Read more

  • W30, Day17

    5/8/2015 7:57:31 PM, by MAYA_ANGEL

    Well I think I DID have quite a reaction to the wine I had last night. I had to take two naps today...feels like I slept most of the day...I was just so tired today. Now that could have been from my 12 hr visit to another city was a very active day and I'm not used to that much acti... Read more

  • W30, Day16

    5/8/2015 2:49:53 AM, by MAYA_ANGEL

    Traveled to another town to visit with friends. Managed to stay on plan EXCEPT two glasses of wine at an al fresco dinner. I DON'T regret it, and to hell with starting over because I went off plan one time; I don't buy that theory. It was a beautiful evening at a fine restaurant with friends and... Read more

  • W30, Day15

    5/6/2015 7:07:35 PM, by MAYA_ANGEL

    Like I said, I never last on any diet, but here I am: Day15. All right! Carb flu is gone again and I felt the best today that I've felt in awhile, so my body must be getting used to this. B: 1/2 grapefruit, sausage, sauteed yam slices, nuts L: salad of artichoke hearts, sliced cucumbe... Read more

  • W30, Day14

    5/5/2015 4:37:27 PM, by MAYA_ANGEL

    Can it really be day 14? I have almost never "lasted" on any "diet" I attempted. I always got cravings or hungry. Not a problem on this one! The problem with this plan has been the low carb flu. Had another 1.5 day "attack" of it. When you're in it, you feel so miserable you think you'... Read more

  • W30, Day13 Evaluation so Far

    5/4/2015 2:29:50 PM, by MAYA_ANGEL

    Freggie asked if I was losing anymore weight? The answer is No, so far. I lost 5 lb right away the first week and since then it has stayed stable at 203. I'm not concerned though. I researched it and temporary plateaus and weight gains are typical and not a big deal, besides, 5 lbs in 12 days is... Read more
