another new beginning
Wednesday, March 26, 2014      1 comments

Just got back from a much needed few days of vacation-was ready to pop from work stress before leaving. Now that my head is clearer I realize I need to do better with eating and to start exercising again to handle this stress better. So once mor... Read more
Here goes (again)
Wednesday, December 04, 2013      0 comments

Tough few months-lots of work stress and doing two people's jobs temporarily, plus a ton of travel= 18 pounds gained since early August. I was feeling lousy and bloated on Monday-decided I'd had enough of that. Am back to following a Primal/Pale... Read more

Today is day 5 of my no sugar, no wheat diet. Have had zero alcohol this week-am planning to keep it to a drink on the weekend only. Am going to give it a couple of weeks before weighing in again, but I feel good, with more balanced energy. Star... Read more

Once again, I wave gotten way off track due to stresses at work. No more: I am recommitting to my health! Bought plenty of healthy food yesterday, and am committing to limiting alcohol (have been relaxing after work and on weekends with wine or ... Read more
Starting again

And so, I start back on the wagon again. Life got in the way again-started a new job, commuted weekly for months living in temp housing, lots of meals out-but we moved 3 weeks ago and it is time to start being healthy again. Need to move more an... Read more

Have been eating well and exercising-haven't weighed in but it feels like I've lost a little weight around my waist. Taking it a day at a time...... Read more
Still on the wagon

Life is really stressful at the moment-new job + planning for a move. I am finding that working out is necessary to keep my stress in check. Traveling for business this week, so more calories than usual at business dinners but I worked out every... Read more
Another year?!
Monday, January 21, 2013      1 comments

Wow, looks like I only manage to post every January. 2012 was a tough year-job was eliminated in June, got very sick in July and August with a gastrointestinal issue. I admit I did not take good care of myself after these things happened, and as... Read more
Another New Year already?

This year I am focused again on improving the consistency of my diet and exercise. The first half of last year was good for these, and mixed in the second half. On the plus side, am down 18.5 lbs since mid-September. Planning to lose 19 more in... Read more

Happy New Year! This is my year to make myself a priority. I WILL lose the 20 pounds I gained last year, and make sure to exercise regularly. I will NOT have "all or nothing" thinking in how I take care of myself, though...... Read more
WAY off the healthy wagon....

It's been 4 1/2 months since my last post, and I've done nothing but gain weight since July. I feel completely disgusted with myself-I've had to buy new larger clothes and am not happy about it. So I start once again-eat less, exercise more - th... Read more

I got home from my trip to Europe at 1:15am on Saturday and fell into bed. I felt tired and jetlagged most of the day-but I didn't have a gym to exercise (just did some walking) during the business trip so I knew I had to work out on Saturday. D... Read more
trip to Europe
Friday, June 25, 2010      1 comments

I am in Europe this week on a business trip. It struck me that most people I have seen eat, drink, and some even smoke-but almost everyone is at a normal weight. Why is this so different from the US? My dinner last night was a good example: I or... Read more
birthday week

I turned 42 this week. I gave myself one week to eat and drink whatever I wanted to "celebrate", and as a result didn't take time to work out this week. I had a great time with my friends, but I have to say...I feel bloated and just plain icky. ... Read more

Well, it has been five eventful months since my last post. I accepted a job at a new company in January, started the job March 1, commuted between states for 3 months, bought and sold houses, and finally moved in early May. The effects of travel... Read more
