I finally made it out for a hike yesterday afternoon and decided to go to a different nature preserve with a nice trail around a prairie area so I could practice Nordic Walking. That sure used some different muscles and torched a lot of calorie... Read more

Okay, maybe this is taking it too far but GrandmaSam posted a pedometer walking challenge for 5000 steps a day and I want to meet that goal (and then some)! The difficulty is that my dresses don't have belts or they are soft belts that won't ... Read more
Tired Saturday
Saturday, August 29, 2009      1 comments

I am really tired today which means vigilance against eating for comfort. I've tried some of my perk up tricks without success so maybe I'd better just take a short power nap. A friend is coming over soon to help start a new pantry for me so I... Read more

My great toothache adventure is winding down to a conclusion with another trip to the dentist tomorrow and I am thankful to finally be feeling better. There's not been much exercise in the past week plus pizza over the weekend so my weight stay... Read more
Owning it

Yesterday was not a very good food day for me and it took me until this evening to actually finish entering it into my nutrition tracker. The pizza was very good and I enjoyed it thoroughly and (fairly) guilt free. But during a week where I am... Read more
Missing exercise
Thursday, August 20, 2009      0 comments

No exercise again today due to an abscessed tooth but at least I am not hungry and not eating to stuff down the misery so that is very good indeed! I am on antibiotics now and will soon be feeling much better! My hubby brought home some fresh ... Read more

In control

This has been a good day with several tests of determination that I have managed to get past. Dropping diet soda seems to have been a big factor in avoiding the afternoon munchies. I traded it for a cup of coffee which doesn't set me off like ... Read more
