I lost another five pounds!
Monday, January 29, 2018      7 comments

I'm happy I lost the weight, but of course I need to adjust my diet because five pounds in a week is a bit too much. I've been eating way below the calorie recommendations from SP for a couple of reasons, the main one being that it's so gratify... Read more
Going to a Cookout Today
Sunday, January 28, 2018      4 comments

I'm pretty excited about going to a cookout today. I get to hang out with like minded political people, which I always enjoy, and there will be lots of healthy options for lunch. My only anxiety is that I'll eat too much, anyway. Well, that's... Read more
New Goals
Saturday, January 27, 2018      4 comments

Since the eating, taking steps and moving are going pretty well so far, I'm thinking about having some new goals. The first one is to make time to do stretches, and to actually do them. Having tendonitis in both arms makes some stretches impos... Read more
I tested my blood sugar last night.
Friday, January 26, 2018      6 comments

Both my parents are diabetic, and my sister, who is three years younger than me, is prediabetic, so there are lots of blood sugar testers laying around. I decided to test two hours after I ate, and I got a 93. So this diet really is helping me... Read more
Recovering from Mom's birthday
Thursday, January 25, 2018      2 comments

Mom turned 70 yesterday, and we celebrated pretty hard ( with food) because she was certain she wouldn't live this long ( but I'm extremely glad she has.). It was a planned cheat day, and I don't feel nearly as guilty about it as I do when I fe... Read more
Paying attention to my moods
Sunday, January 21, 2018      2 comments

I don't realize how up and down my moods go until I come here to blog. It was another blah day, but I ate according to plan and I got both 16 minutes of strenuous exercise in and more steps than I planned on. So yay! I weigh tomorrow and mayb... Read more
Danced this morning!
Saturday, January 20, 2018      5 comments

I woke up with another headache this morning, but I took ibuprofen immediately and after it started working, I got up to get some steps in. It turned into dancing, and even though it only lasted about 12 or so minutes, I'm pleased. I didn't ev... Read more
Discouraging day
Friday, January 19, 2018      4 comments

I woke up with a headache that doesn't want to leave,and things have gone downhill since. I've been good food wise, but it's hard to get my steps in with this headache. I kinda just want to stay in bed and watch Netflix, but I'm pushing mysel... Read more
Mall walk!

It's a bit chilly for walking outside, so I'm walking with my sister in the mall. Two floors of walking space! I've been walking a little all day long, for over a week, now let's see how much stamina I have.... Read more
I'm not used to this kind of cold
Wednesday, January 17, 2018      3 comments

Trying to keep warm has been a challenge, not to mention finding a way to walk! Today I walked in circles around the living room, because there was no way I was going outside this morning. I can deal with cold to about the 30s, but it's been b... Read more
I got a Fitbit for my birthday
Sunday, January 14, 2018      7 comments

I've been wearing my Fitbit for a week, and it's helping me get up and move. I'm not sure why my energy has been so low for so long, but it has been and I'm slowly trying to do more. I moved in with my parents in late November of 2017, to hel... Read more
Almost Superstitious
Sunday, July 23, 2017      2 comments

These last few months have been a bit of a nightmare: I was doing well cutting back on sugar for a whole five days when YET ANOTHER FREAKING BOMBSHELL was dropped on me and once again I turned to food and sugar. I decided that was it, I was goin... Read more
Three days of no sugar

I got through yesterday ok, and today I have a boost in energy, and a little bit of a boost in mood. That's amazing for this time of year for me! The heat usually turns me into a sloth. I'd rather hibernate in summer than in winter,so having ... Read more
I didn't eat refined sugar yesterday
Wednesday, June 07, 2017      3 comments

I sweetened a fruit smoothie with monkfruit sweetener, and even though it didn't taste exactly like I wanted it to, it was passable. I'm going to do the same thing for my snack today. Physically, I'm feeling a little bit better than I did befo... Read more
Tentative Return
Tuesday, June 06, 2017      4 comments

I'm feeling much better since I last posted. I'm trying not to overthink or expect too much: in fact, I'm going to try and maintain my current weight for a while, while cutting back on sugar and saturated fat and trying to get at least a little... Read more
