New Year--New Plans
Thursday, January 07, 2016      3 comments

Between Thanksgiving and Christmas my eating went off the rails. The meats, cookies, cakes, drinks, etc. were all yummy. But were they worth it? I must have thought so at the time, because I consumed them all. Anyway, this is a new day, ... Read more

I have been "fuzzy around the edges" re. my eating lately. Not staying on the straight and narrow path, which, for me, means GF oats in the morning with some fruit and ground flax seed and some almond milk, something healthy for lunch (usually ... Read more

Today I got up at 5:30 a.m. just to go rowing on a beautiful lake (without alligators in it!) in the big city we spent the night in. My rowing buddy and very good friend met me at the boathouse where I used to be a member, and we carried our sc... Read more

started with a great breakfast and then we drove to a big city about two hours away for some business. I took care of some items at stores that we don't have in our town. Traffic was horrible. By the time I got done it was two p.m. And time for ... Read more
Diet vs. exercise for weight loss
Sunday, August 09, 2015      6 comments

Well, I learned something important on our recent vacation. Weight loss comes, I'd say, 90% from diet, and only 10% from exercise. Last week we went hiking in the NC mountains. A couple of days we had 20,000+ steps and almost 7 miles of stren... Read more
Data on Boone Fork Trail and exercise data today
Wednesday, August 05, 2015      0 comments

The Boone Fork Trail differs from most Parkway hikes in two ways. The first is that the majority of the trail is in the woods, where tumbling streams and rock outcroppings replace typically grand vistas. The second is its length. At 4.9 miles, t... Read more

We hiked the Boone Fork Trail today. Got a little turned around because I missed a trail sign so we did a mile or so extra over the 4.9 miles of the trail. My phone app said 20450 steps and 7.49 miles and the equivalent of 29 flights climbed. We... Read more
"Public" blogs vs. "private" blogs
Friday, July 17, 2015      3 comments

I have been mainly blogging to myself, writing down my meal descriptions and exercise in the "notes" at the bottom of the food tracker on SP. It has been sufficient for my thoughts. Yesterday I posted a one-sentence blog stating that fact and ... Read more

I have just started with a new doctor--one whose staff answers the phone, and whose nurse you can get to know. A doctor who has time for you. She spent an hour with me at our introductory visit, and instructed me to limit my fruits to just tho... Read more
Losing/Maintaining w/o counting calories
Sunday, April 20, 2014      2 comments

After about a year following the plant-strong way of eating, I can now report that this works!!! I am free!! No more counting calories; no more weighing food or portioning out little servings. Right now I weigh less than 140 and have maintain... Read more
