On Autopilot
Monday, September 22, 2008      4 comments

In a good way. I realized, yesterday, that healthy habits have pretty much become a lifestyle. That I don't always have to think about it, I just do it. Even when tired. I reach for fruit after lunch instead of a cookie. I stick to my exer... Read more
I saw a coyote
Sunday, September 21, 2008      1 comments

Actually, what this blog mostly is about is change. But first, no doorbell ringing last night! My fence gates were still closed this morning. I didn't sleep all that well, mostly due to the fact that Lola was either licking her lips or trying to... Read more
What would you do?
Saturday, September 20, 2008      2 comments

This post REALLY has nothing to do with weight loss, but I could sure use some input. Something very scary happened last night. Someone rang our doorbell around 2 am -- 3 times. The dogs, of course, ran off barking. I sat up in bed clutchin... Read more
Friday Fit Tip: Freezing cookies
Friday, September 19, 2008      1 comments

This may be old hat to many, and you would think with my love of baking I would have come across this long ago, but it was new to me: you can freeze unbaked, but fully formed, cookies. Got the urge for a nice, warm cookie? Grab one from the free... Read more
Oops, he did it again
Thursday, September 18, 2008      2 comments

Slimy neighbor guy is at it again. Ok, he isn't actually slimy; he's really quite nice, and he once did us an incredible favor without even really knowing us -- but he's coming on to me. Now, I can count on one hand the number of men who ha... Read more
Just do it
Wednesday, September 17, 2008      3 comments

Whoever came up with that slogan for Nike was brilliant, IMHO. I repeat this to myself a lot. Not so much with healthy eating, more so with things like housework -- things I really don't enjoy doing. I did clean one refrigerator shelf yesterday.... Read more
The one that got away
Tuesday, September 16, 2008      1 comments

That's what today feels like. Here I am blogging at almost 5 pm. I never blog that late. I blog later on Tuesdays, usually, because it's agility day. But it seems like today just got away from me. I'm not sure how. As usual, I don't feel I did t... Read more
Changing motivation
Monday, September 15, 2008      3 comments

The cruise was a big motivator. Maybe too big. I think life has been trying to send me a lesson for a while, but like I said, sometimes I'm a slow learner. When I get too focused on looking good for an occasion, I start to make poor choices. ... Read more
Say when
Sunday, September 14, 2008      2 comments

There's a good line from the movie "Regarding Henry", where the secretary reminds Henry (who's had brain damage) that when you've had enough, you say "when". I have trouble saying "when" to exercise. I don't have exercise bulimia -- I don't... Read more
Multiple plans
Saturday, September 13, 2008      0 comments

We are back to agility. In agility, you have a Plan A: the plan you think is most likely to get you around the course in the fastest time with your dog easily following your instructions. But you need a Plan B, a Plan C, a Plan D and so on.... Read more
Nourishing yourself
Friday, September 12, 2008      3 comments

There are many ways to nourish yourself; food is just one way, although even when you're trying to lose weight, it's important. Important to eat good food, that is. Once I had a few meals I'd made myself, I found that I did feel nourished -- I w... Read more
Are you destined to be fat?
Thursday, September 11, 2008      2 comments

I used to think I was. In fact, I wasn't the only one. I worked out with a personal trainer for a long time. She knew I got plenty of exercise, and I brought in my food log for her to peruse -- she really didn't have a whole lot of suggestions. ... Read more
Losing weight is like knitting
Wednesday, September 10, 2008      3 comments

Yes, I have finally started knitting again. I tape the Today show in the mornings. During the summer, I have to get the dogs out early for our walk because it's so hot. So I watch it later in the day -- often at night. Lola doesn't like it ... Read more
The benefits of breaks
Tuesday, September 09, 2008      3 comments

Another agility lesson. It's about 3 weeks or so since the dogs did agility. This morning was more humid than it's been in a while. They both did great, though. There's a thing called latent learning. How you learn something, take a break f... Read more
A new beginning
Monday, September 08, 2008      5 comments

The nice thing about a new month, a new week, a new day is that they are all chances for new beginnings. I dropped DH off at the airport yet again yesterday. He'll be gone at least 3 weeks this time, and part of that will be a business trip... Read more
