A month ago I tried on these jeans but they still did not fit. They are the same size as others that I wear often, but I guess this brand runs smaller. I barely got them butt... Read more
Goal #2 not finish kids' food for them
Monday, October 14, 2013      1 comments

My first goal was to not eat while cooking. I feel I am doing pretty well with that now. I do take a bite sometimes to make sure the seasoning is right, but that is all. I feel ready to add the next goal. Goal #2 is to not finish my kids' fo... Read more

When we go on a date my husband and I usually end up eating, watching a movie, or both. I was thinking that we need a hobby or something active to do together when we go out. A couple times during the summer we went for bike rides and that was f... Read more
Lessons learned from setting one goal
Wednesday, October 09, 2013      1 comments

I did OK with my goal of not eating while cooking. Just thinking about that goal has made me see many other little changes I can make over the next few weeks. Sometimes I will do them now when I am not feeling stressed about all of it. We had bu... Read more
One Step at a Time

I make most of my food from scratch at home. I like to cook and it is usually a more healthy and less expensive option. The only problem has been that it has been very time consuming to try and track my foods. I rarely make things exactly the sa... Read more

I was visiting my family and noticed that they had a new mirror at the end of a hallway, it actually belonged to my grandmother but is now my sister's. I always liked it at my grandmother's house but had never realized the magical power it poses... Read more

I was talking to my mother the other day about how everyone has something they are good at. Six years ago when I had my freshman year of collage I realized that I was not as good at music as I had once thought. I had always felt that it came fai... Read more
New Scale

My old scale is the regular dial kind, where it is hard to tell for sure exactly which tiny line it is pointing to. I saw a deal today on digital scales at B3 and even had a coupon so I decided it was time to move to a digital. I think it will ... Read more
Better than last year

Well, I'm back from our ten day camping trip. I did well with eating and exercise for the first half of the trip, slid a little at the end but all in all better than last year. Last year I gained 10lbs in two weeks on our summer vacation. I didn... Read more
What do you do when other people are cooking too?

We are going on a week long camping trip with my in-laws. None of them like whole grains. I am one that only uses fresh ground, whole wheat flour in all my cooking. If I am buying something premade I always go for the whole grain variety. Also w... Read more
