Yesterday, Ian and I went for a walk. This was the first walk that I have been on since my surgery on June 18th. I was able to go further than I thought I would be able to. We walked about half of a mile. I have been walking in the pool and movi... Read more

Today, Ian and I walked about 1.5 miles at a leisurely, but purposeful pace. We visited with each other throughout the walk and would speak to our neighbors as we walked by, but did not stop. It was pleasant and rewarding. The weather is on the ... Read more

Ian and I have been on a strict budget lately (supporting three kids in college will do that to you). One of the places that we have managed to save LOTS of money is on our groceries. We have completely changed the way that we eat and it is savi... Read more

Ian and I decided to walk to the grocery store this evening. It is something that he does fairly regularly (he loves to walk), but I have never gone with him before. I really enjoy walking with my husband. It is especially enjoyable withou... Read more

I weighed this week. I now weigh what I weighed while I was engaged to Ian in 2003 - about 6 pounds less than I weighed when we got married. At my age (55) the scale is not moving too quickly. To keep a positive outlook. I have determined ... Read more

Yes I am one of those people who does not believe that we should be defined by the scale, but by our actions. Still it is nice to see when the actions result in movement on the scale. I have been stuck at 282 for 6 months --- well not really stu... Read more
Not looking does not change reality
Friday, February 12, 2010      5 comments

For so long, I would not look at myself. I refused to see what I had done to myself. I would not go to the beauty shop because I did not want to look in the mirror. I would not try on clothes, so I bought everything on line. I just refused to lo... Read more

I managed to hit the correct calorie range 2 days in a row! I got the right amount of all of my nutrients except for B12 and protein (just a few grams short). It is a real stuggle for me to get all of the nutrients I track in the correct r... Read more

Yesterday, I did something that I have rarely done lately. I did not feel like cooking dinner and I had the leftovers that I still had in the fridge for lunch (yeah, I know, but you know what I mean). So I ate exactly what I felt like. 10 stalks... Read more
