Taking that short break

I'll be back soon, hopefully after Valentines Day.... Read more
I thought about giving up for now
Saturday, February 11, 2017      4 comments

I'm not sure I'm going to have the emotional energy to continue dieting at the moment. I was thinking about giving up the calorie counting for now, while sticking with the walks, and stretches, and avoiding too much saturated fat. One day I'll... Read more
My husband lost his job yesterday
Saturday, February 11, 2017      7 comments

I'm beside myself. I binge ate last night, because, you know, I may as well eat while there's still food in the house. I want to get back on track today, but who knows. I'm overwhelmed and afraid. He and I have planned a long walk today,... Read more
So far so good

This morning I steered the conversation with my husband away from politics and onto food. I love politics, but they make me too anxious right now so I'm mostly avoiding them. Especially first thing in the morning. My husband is a Muslim, and... Read more
Went to my doctor's appointment yesterday
Thursday, February 09, 2017      2 comments

I still haven't gotten my blood work done, but everything else looks OK and I got my medication refilled. I checked my scale against two in the office, and my scale weighs two to three pounds heavier than the doctor's. That's OK for my purpos... Read more
No change on the scale
Wednesday, February 08, 2017      9 comments

Well I said I want to go slow. I stepped on the scale two days early because I need to check my scale against my doctor's, and I haven't lost any more weight. I was telling myself all the usual things, like "look at your increased energy! Yo... Read more
Big Ole Belly
Tuesday, February 07, 2017      4 comments

I was looking at myself in the mirror this morning and I saw that even though I've lost a lot of weight over the last few years, I still have a big stomach. Not as big as it used to be, but big enough. I try to give other people encourage me... Read more
Feeling So MUCH Better Today
Monday, February 06, 2017      5 comments

I'm not sure what was up with me yesterday, but today I'm doing better. I did some rearranging on my (tiny itty bitty) kitchen counters this morning while waiting for my coffee, and it looks much better. I have my recipes and plans for most ... Read more
Bad Day
Sunday, February 05, 2017      6 comments

I feel so blah and down today. After several days of feeling pretty good, I'm back to my usual self and I hate it. Normally I would eat all day to hide from these feelings, but I'm trying not to do that. I'm not really wanting food, anyway.... Read more
My Snack
Saturday, February 04, 2017      5 comments

I stirred 3/4s cup of low fat Greek yogurt until it was silky, then I added a pinch of cinnamon, a tablespoon of honey, and an ounce of almonds I ground coarsely. It was so good I want to eat it again sometime. Maybe I'll add saffron at some ... Read more
Planned Cheat Meal
Saturday, February 04, 2017      8 comments

Last night I had a planned cheat meal that turned into a cheat night. I started out with homemade enchiladas, which I made with very low fat ground beef, corn tortillas, and half the cheese I would normally use, and lots of beans I mashed mysel... Read more
I can get dressed without falling over!
Friday, February 03, 2017      6 comments

It may not seem like a big deal, but it is for me. From July of 2016 I had a very hard time even walking, and by October I was mostly bedridden, too weak to even grocery shop. And I love grocery shopping. I was depressed and anxious, and so... Read more
I made my goal of walking four times a week!
Thursday, February 02, 2017      5 comments

I made it even with heart palpitations two days of this week! I'm proud! But. I was walking fairly quickly, for me, and doing well until the final five minutes of the walk, when I got dizzy and nauseated. I slowly finished the walk to my car,... Read more
The First of February
Wednesday, February 01, 2017      3 comments

February is my least favorite month, with only Valentines Day to enliven it, although it's not my favorite holiday. I have a couple of goals outside of fitness this month, some I like, like going back to UU church services, and some I don't, l... Read more
Wow! I'm in a good mood!
Tuesday, January 31, 2017      7 comments

I tend to be depressive and anxious but for whatever reason I woke up in a good mood this morning. Not even reading the morning news could put a dent in me this morning, which is so rare. I did a little cleaning in my kitchen and found my re... Read more
