How's it working for you?
Tuesday, January 27, 2009      4 comments

I can't say as I'm really a big fan of Dr. Phil, but I am a big fan of his trademark phrase, and I sat up and took notice when it cropped up in Louise Hay's "You Can Heal Your Life". Many of us have spent years criticizing ourselves, myself... Read more
Letting go of perfectionism
Monday, January 26, 2009      2 comments

It's hard, isn't it? I haven't felt well the last couple of days. Nothing major, just tired & achy, and I know it's something that will go away in a few days if not sooner. But I haven't quite met my 10,000 steps. And I feel guilty about th... Read more
Change your mind, change your body
Sunday, January 25, 2009      3 comments

I've blogged before about how important our mindset can be. It's true in all areas of our lives -- our minds are so powerful. I grew up in NY and went to school in NY. And the one thing I knew was I didn't want to live in an area with long,... Read more
What are you hiding from yourself?
Saturday, January 24, 2009      4 comments

Yesterday I tackled the small trunk I have at the foot of my bed. It's where I put the clothes that don't fit; the ones that I think are worth saving. Only I haven't looked into it in years. Out of sight, out of mind -- which was too bad, becaus... Read more
Friday Fit Tip: Weight loss quiz
Friday, January 23, 2009      2 comments

ightloss/quizzes/uweightloss/ I thought this was an interesting quiz. I did quite well, altho some questions didn't quite have the right answer -- I'd fall somewhere in between. I especially like... Read more
Back home . . . for now
Thursday, January 22, 2009      2 comments

Thankfully, my flights up & back went smoothly. No blizzards, no dipping into the Hudson. While it was one of the coldest weeks of the winter, I'd invested a LOT of money in winter clothes during the sales of December, and it paid off. I didn't ... Read more
Winter exercise for the dogs
Tuesday, January 20, 2009      1 comments

Yesterday I got in enough exercise to make up for this weekend. I did Zumba, then headed out for a long walk, basically circling around most of the apartment complex again and again. DH was working from home. Today was a bit more challengin... Read more
Food isn't sweet salvation
Sunday, January 18, 2009      2 comments

Change is hard. Change is stressful. Sometimes changes just sideblinds you. It's easy to try and comfort yourself with food. Thankfully, with rare exceptions, I am way past trying to comfort myself with food. Because I know that my problems will... Read more
My traveling companions
Saturday, January 17, 2009      1 comments

My flights were uneventful -- thankfully, after the plane that went into the Hudson! And while it's definitely cold, I was prepared for it and it's not that bad (as long as you're not walking dogs or shoveling). I did well eating-wise. They... Read more
Proud of myself!
Friday, January 16, 2009      2 comments

I leave shortly. Last night I made a goal of getting in 5,000 steps before I left. I got in almost 7,000. I got in my oils (it's a WW thing), one fruit, and one milk. Sadly, no veggies. Veggies will be hard today. I was going to bring carrots wi... Read more
Love your body
Thursday, January 15, 2009      4 comments

It's so hard, isn't it? Yet it's at the core of developing a healthy body. Love yourself, and you feel worthy. If you feel worthy, you'll take care of yourself. The hard part is to love yourself even if you're overweight. I was not loving ... Read more
Do you have OCDD?
Wednesday, January 14, 2009      1 comments

After my small rant about the biggest loser yesterday, I thought I'd turn the spotlight on myself. OCDD: obssessive-compulsive diet disorder. Sometimes I do think I suffer from this. It worries me, because I'm firmly convinced I've made lif... Read more
Who's the biggest loser?
Tuesday, January 13, 2009      3 comments

I have never watched the show, and the reason I've never watched it is I think -- from what I've read -- that it's an unreasonable way to lose weight. How many people have 6 hours a day to devote to exercise? Most people can't even mange 30... Read more
The granola diet
Monday, January 12, 2009      3 comments

Gotcha again. No, it's not some weird fad diet. But it's about my diet success. It's simple: when I make my own granola, I'm usually on program. I used to make my own granola on a regular basis quite a few years ago. Somewhere along the way... Read more
Fitness against the odds
Sunday, January 11, 2009      3 comments

Next week I'll be going up to Albany to check out the house my husband looked at. It's going to be challenging. It's forecast to be about 5 when I get there. My husband has no exercise equipment whatsoever. His apartment complex does have a... Read more
