Not proud of myself today
Tuesday, March 22, 2011      7 comments

Not for the usual reasons--I got out and did a very good workout at the gym, have eaten well so far, etc. No, I was rude to someone and I hate that. I was running on the treadmill--really working--with my ear buds in both ears, and an ... Read more

I had a great idea for a blog--but as I sit here, fingers poised over the keyboard, my mind is a total blank. I guess I am ahead of the game in some respects--at least I am aware that I am blanking!... Read more
My new "friend" at the gym
Saturday, March 19, 2011      5 comments

As I was arriving this morning, the gentleman who made my day on Thursday was leaving. We smiled and said hi--have a great day. It was nothing, but it was such a nice connection for two strangers. I noticed again that he was limping and compl... Read more
A Great Compliment!
Thursday, March 17, 2011      5 comments

We all love compliments--especially those that come out of the blue. This morning I was getting set to start my treadmill workout, and the man on the next machine suddenly said to me--"You really rock that machine! I've seen you before and... Read more

Haven't blogged in a while. I guess not much has been going on that was worthy of open discussion! Had a walk this morning, unfortunately before the sun was really up, but at least I was moving. Since I pulled my muscle, I have felt off f... Read more
I am a slug

Wow--not having any exercise for several days has become the aberration rather than the norm and I feel it! I woke up this morning not feeling great--a great deal of it is stress and not sleeping well recently, but I think some of it is lack of... Read more
Pulled a muscle, oh my!

Saturday morning I felt that ominous pull in my groin as I was getting ready to go to the gym. It wasn't a terrible one, and I was doing absolutely nothing out of the normal, it was just what it was. Annoying. I went ahead and did my workout,... Read more
More tweaking

So my friend, TerriJ7, made the comment on the prior blog that recipes are for people who don't cook, and that just hit me. I just made a little cookbook for my son who moved into his own apartment last fall and wants to make more of his ow... Read more
Just can't follow a recipe anymore!
Sunday, February 27, 2011      6 comments

One effect of my weight loss journey has been that every time I see a recipe, I look at it in terms of how I can make it healthier. Yesterday I came across a recipe called Black Magic Cake, which was absurdly simple, and just ripe for "ad... Read more
I will not talk about saltines today!
Thursday, February 24, 2011      3 comments

I don't have much else to say so this will be short! Good choices, bad choices, day by day is full of them. I figure if I make good choices 60 to 75% of the time, I am ahead of the game. Feeling a little sedentary lately even though... Read more
Streak ended
Wednesday, February 23, 2011      3 comments

I made soup yesterday for dinner--and had saltines with it. But no butter, so only part of the equation. Not too bad, more than I should have but fewer than I could have, and the package will be gone in one more "outing". I do not plan to rep... Read more

One day--without saltines........will it be a streak? Actually, one day without them and I feel noticeably less "salted" a good thing! Funny, when I bought the crackers, it didn't even occur to me to get low-salt, which is what I generally... Read more
Holy Cow, maybe today I can be saltineless
Thursday, February 17, 2011      6 comments

Two days of overdoing on the saltines. Yesterday they were most of my food intake, and I can see that I have retained water more than normally as a result of the salt!! Today is a new day, I am eating properly--at least so far--and I hope ... Read more
Saltines? Really?
Wednesday, February 16, 2011      4 comments

Usually when you fall "off the wagon" so to speak, it is for chocolate cake, or ice cream, or rich sauces, or pizza or hamburger--the list goes on and on. But saltines?? I swear, I have gotten just plain weird, food-wise. I've been compla... Read more

And, yes, I mean that in several different respects..... One type of regularity (ahem) made me think about the fact that I a creature who needs a lot of routine in my life. Lately, my eating routines have been thrown off because I have bee... Read more
