I read...a lot. I have three magazines that I read every issue, front to back. They are Woman's World, Self and O The Magazine. Since I don't have a lot of time, I am a little behind on all of the issues. I just started the May (or maybe it'... Read more
Update on previous blogs...
First, our boxer's welts are gone. She is her feisty little (or not so little) self again. DH took her to the dog park today and she was not very well behaved. A small poodle was apparently being too "poodle-y" so our little girl decided to t... Read more
A little over on calories today...
if you can call going over by 800 calories a "little." I was doing okay. At lunch, I decided not to eat what I brought for lunch and went out instead. I could have chosen Blimpie's or Subway, but I went to Jack in the Box. However, I did do ... Read more
I love working out...no really, I do!
This week, I made a concerted effort to work out more during the week than I had for the last few weeks. And, I must say, I have been successful! I went to the gym near my home both Saturday and Sunday. Unfortunately there was a glitch at the... Read more
Workout at work!
Since football season started, I have been spending four days a week watching my son's practice. The fift week day has been spent on puppy training. This means that my normal evening workouts have gone out the window.
Today, I decided t... Read more
One of the magazines I read has a new diet every week. I read them all because I figure I can get at least one good idea from each. Or reinforce something I've already learned. The one I read this week is the raisin diet, even though I don't ... Read more
A really good day
Slept in. Got ready to take the boy to football. I had on a billion layers cos it was cold here! Okay, maybe only half a billion layers. LOL! Took a package to the post office to send out. Unfortunately, I got there at 10:36 and they close ... Read more
Saturdays are football days for the next couple of weeks. Tomorrow, we have concessions for my son's football team from eight until ten. We have enough folks working that I don't have to be there at all! I will probably swing by at least once... Read more
Done early, getting caught up, sorta
I am getting things accomplished! Son has a b-day party to go to tomorrow. I got a card and gift on the way home from work and it is ready to go! I've got all my chores done for tomorrow and even have a little time to get some stuff done for ... Read more
I need a goal
I mean a real goal. Not just try to eat good. Or try to exercise. I need a S.M.A.R.T. goal.
S = Specific
M = Measurable
A = Achievable
R = Realistic
T = Timely
There are two I can think of right now. Stay in my range for fi... Read more
Long day = short blog
My neck hurts (just started about an hour ago). Thought I would have more time to get stuff done...I was wrong! Really tired and I need to go pack my lunch for tomorrow and then head to bed. See you all on the flip side.... Read more
The oddest dreams occur....
when your sleeping habitat is changed.
Let's start with the fact that the fan on our air conditioner was making some odd noises on Saturday morning. We have central air and someone had changed the switch for the fan to on instead of auto.... Read more
Look at me go!
I kicked some butt yesterday and today! Yesterday I worked out, started laundry, cleaned myself up, made chocolates for Bunco, went to the library and got my son to his game at noon (a 30-minute drive away!). Watched his team win their first g... Read more
Counting fiber worked...until it didn't!
Okay, so counting my fiber grams did work very well. It's when I went out to Bunco and started eating all the yummy treats there that my plan fell to pieces! When you are faced with bread rounds and yummy dip, cookies, candies, chips and salsa... Read more

Track Fiber instead of Calories?
Today, the teacher of my Nutrition Boot Camp class said something interesting today. She said that if you were working on getting all of the fiber in that you should (25 grams for women, 35 grams for men), you would have a very healthy diet. G... Read more
