Half marathon yes or no
Thursday, February 14, 2013      4 comments

I did not get a real run in (other than a little jogging around the neighborhood with the dogs and the horse) because of my recent cold. I could try to go on a long run tomorrow if the weather is decent. I'm trying to decide whether I really ... Read more
16 days without dairy just ended - Happy Valentine's Day to me!
Thursday, February 14, 2013      3 comments

I don't know if it was the latte with almond milk last night that tasted a little bitter or the fact that I knew we had more than a gallon of full-fat raw A2 milk sitting in the fridge that would not keep more than a few more days now. But I dec... Read more

How my favorite dog and I handle being sick
Friday, February 08, 2013      19 comments

Me: I feel horrible! (it's just a cold) Dog: I don't have as much energy today. Will go sleep some more. Me: What can I do to feel better? Maybe eat? Nothing tastes good. This is so annoying. I don't even have the energy to make myself fe... Read more

My body scan yesterday revealed that my body fat finally dropped a bit from 23% to 22% and my muscle mass increased by another 2 lbs. My total weight was up by about 4 lbs. but the rest was water, which means I was better hydrated, a plus in mo... Read more
It's not about the weight - Weight does not matter much
Monday, February 04, 2013      18 comments

I find myself saying this all the time. I even hear or read people agree with me and then act the opposite. There are a lot of weight loss challenges on Spark while at the same time there is advice about not stepping on the scales too often. Spa... Read more

3rd dairy-free day, short run
Friday, February 01, 2013      9 comments

I managed to not get tempted by dairy, but it came at a cost. I increased my berries to 3 servings and I had more almond milk and nuts than what would have been ideal carb-wise. But one step at a time. I did get a 2-mile run in and an hour of... Read more

Not by choice, but because I seem to be sensitive or allergic. I had noticed in the last few weeks that some of the symptoms I had left behind since giving up wheat and then grains were returning. In particular a bloated feeling after eating, so... Read more

Passing on a very special blog
Monday, January 14, 2013      25 comments

What is special about it is that it is my 15-year-old daughter's first blog and it is a topic that I'm passionate about (which got me an "honorable mention" in it). ... Read more
