So had a wonderful week in NYC, did most of the things I went there to do -- altho I really could've used another week to shop (but maybe my bank account is glad I didn't have it), but came do with a mild flu that had me on the couch all last we... Read more
Actually, I'm not really sure there was a cause and effect there. I think it really had a lot more to do with pre-TOM hungries. I get really hungry a week or two before, and usually my appetite plummets when it actually arrives (during vacation,... Read more
I swear, people are always saying this, and I always feel like there's never quite enough energy. Til yesterday. Finally, I could say that I had energy thru the roof!
I had a long to-do list, and I crossed off all the items except for one -... Read more
This one goes almost directly in the opposite direction from yesteday's blog.
I think I've given up on the shopping tour. Sounds like fun, but I can print out maps from TLC's What Not to Wear (which unfortunately I've become addicted to) an... Read more
As I was putting together the tempeh salad for lunch today, I realized that I alawys somewhat fear vacations, no matter how much I also look forward to them.
And it occurred to me that that is absolutely the wrong way to approach it. It's t... Read more
I had a nice, substantial, whole foods breakfast this morning: oats with an apple, sunflowerseeds, and almonds. But by the time I got back from walking the dogs 3 hours later, I was starving.
The hungries have arrived again.
Well, I ma... Read more
We all know why we want to lose weight. We all have long lists. But why does it seem that those reasons and lists just fly out the window the minute we feel the slightest bit of hunger? Out of sight, out of mind.
I bought myself a bracelet ... Read more
So here we are at the end of April. And I have not entered any of my fitness minutes. Oh, I've racked them up, as usual, and I keep track of them in my fitbook. I just haven't bothered to enter them here.
I like spark points so I can give g... Read more
I've done quite a few walking tours in my time, and I always enjoy them.
While researching places to run in NYC, I came across a company that does running tours. How cool is that?
Except I'm a slow runner. A really slow runner. They do... Read more
Well, it should've, because the scale moved for me!!!!
Back to that in a moment. Thanks for all your comments on my blog yesterday . . . I actually put my foot down with DH before I read them and told him we're going to stay in a hotel. He ... Read more
I spent many years with vacuum cleaners I didn't particularly like. The el cheapo one I bought when I was in my first apartment. The canister one DH had -- I detest canister vacuums. The Magic Devil I really liked at first, but whose attachment... Read more
I stole this subject directly from today's skinnyinthecity.com/ newsletter.
The advice comes from Bob Harper, of "The Biggest Loser" fame (and no, I don't watch the show).
So simple, isn't it? It's about taking all you... Read more
. . . I remind myself of how I felt when I was 29 pounds heavier.
I do my share of whining:
It's too hard.
Why can't I eat what I want to?
Why can't I eat how MUCH I want to?
How come I lose weight so slowly?
How co... Read more
Well, yes, of course our beauty comes from the inside.
But I'm talking more about our foundations here. Not content with just brighter clothes, I wanted some brighter foundation garmets, too (sorry if it's TMI, menfolk!).
So I stopped ... Read more
. . . or my body is talking to me (which was what I originally was going to title this blog, but then "getting to know you" from "The King & I" got stuck in my head -- odd trivia about me: I actually got to see "The King & I" with Yul Brynner ma... Read more
