Celebrating successes
Wednesday, May 21, 2008      1 comments

To keep on in my positive vein, I wanted to share a few successes I've had over the last few months: 1. I have a little post-it note on my computer, with three of the things I want to happen. One of them is to paint in my office. And after ... Read more
Curbing my sweet tooth
Tuesday, May 20, 2008      2 comments

Sweets are, without a doubt, my biggest downfall. I've come a long way from the days when I could eat an entire box of cookies in one sitting -- boy, just writing that makes me feel ill. But I still crave sweets. Not all the time, but after... Read more
Accentuate the positive, take II
Monday, May 19, 2008      1 comments

Yes, so I finally went to a WW meeting yesterday. And since the end of March, I've lost 1 pound. 1 freakin' pound! Don't worry, it won't derail me, but it's hard to accept. I say to myself all the things I'd say to anyone else: I know my cl... Read more
Accentuate the positive
Sunday, May 18, 2008      4 comments

It's so very easy to let those negative thoughts creep in there. And while it may seem that there's nothing wrong with thinking "I hate the way I look", it's a short jump to other negative thoughts like "this is taking too long", "I'll never be ... Read more
Gym or go it alone?
Friday, May 16, 2008      5 comments

I miss the gym. I gave it up several years ago when I stopped working. I was very lucky that mine didn't cost that much, but with a new puppy I couldn't justify the expense, nor did I have the time. I am motivated, though, and I do regularl... Read more
Cat litter
Thursday, May 15, 2008      4 comments

I had a nice post written about the last couple of days, and then the computer ate it. Oh well. As I was walking around the hotel we were staying at, sometimes out of breath, it occurred to me no wonder I get out of breath: I am carrying ar... Read more
Making Lemonade
Monday, May 12, 2008      0 comments

It hasn't been easy to get my bootcamp workouts in, or anywhere near my normal amount of exercise, for that fact; but I do what I can. I had every intention of doing a bootcamp workout yesterday after we got home, but I was just too tired (... Read more
The good, the bad, the ugly, part II
Saturday, May 10, 2008      3 comments

The good: I planned ahead, got a turkey sub from subway the night before, so I had my sub with me for lunch at the airport, rather than be at the mercy of the tempting but not-so-healthy airport food (we actually have some pretty good local rest... Read more
Mission impossible: vacation planning
Wednesday, May 07, 2008      4 comments

It seems that way sometimes. And other times, the universe has a way of aligning itself to help you. I was so sick Monday, but rapidly got better (crosses fingers for continued health). Then today I log on and one of my articles is "Easy Va... Read more
Feeling better
Tuesday, May 06, 2008      4 comments

Thanks everyone for the well wishes -- I feel much better today! Don't worry, I'm still trying to take it as easy as I can, but I'm so thankful that I feel better because I really do have a lot of stuff that must get done. It was very weird... Read more
I'm bummed
Monday, May 05, 2008      4 comments

So here I even went to the lengths of posting an unflattering before photo for the Swimsuit Bootcamp. Even though I knew I'd be gone for a week during it, I'll have access to a computer some days. But I woke up this morning feeling totally ... Read more
The good, the bad, the ugly
Sunday, May 04, 2008      3 comments

Well, maybe not ugly. So I joined the Swimsuit Bootcamp team, teams.sparkpeople.com/Bo
otcamp , where you'll be given challenges each day & the chance to win prizes; there's a $1000 grand prize. And part of today's chall... Read more
Making it a lifestyle
Saturday, May 03, 2008      2 comments

Not too long ago, I came across a thread on the message boards. Someone was going to the ball park, and she wanted to have nachos. She'd looked up the nutritional info, and 2 servings were about 600 - 700 calories. She'd only eaten about 400 cal... Read more
Friday Fit Tip: 3 less bites
Friday, May 02, 2008      7 comments

Don't want to count calories? How about counting bites? And you only have to count to 3! So here's the deal: at each meal, try to leave just 3 bites over. Just a little bit. You'll be amazed at how a little can add up to a lot. I tried... Read more
My dirty little secret
Thursday, May 01, 2008      9 comments

Got your attention, didn't I? Well, I do have a dirty little secret: it's my pantry. Or rather my whole house now, but it started with the pantry. I must have bought some flour or something at some point that had bugs in it. I'm not sure wh... Read more
