Weight loss is like house cleaning
Friday, August 06, 2010      3 comments

It helps if you have a routine (Flylady, anyone?) -- for both cleaning and a healthy lifestyle. I think I've struggled a bit with the whole housecleaning thing because I've yet to settle back into a routine, even tho we've lived here more than a... Read more
Dream big
Thursday, August 05, 2010      6 comments

In a sense, this has nothing to do with weight loss, but in a roundabout way, as always, it does, so bear with me. It will be our 25th anniversary in about 2 months -- and DH's 50th birthday in about a month -- so a big year for us. An... Read more
Being healthy isn't just about food . . .
Wednesday, August 04, 2010      6 comments

. . . it's also about being fit and at peace. Don't you just love that quote? It's from raw-pleasure.com.au/Arti

A healthy lifestyle or taking over my life?
Tuesday, August 03, 2010      5 comments

I'll tell ya, it's a good thing I'm not working because work would just get in the way of my exercising and food prep. Yesterday I decided that if I was in the mood I'd go for an easy run in the morning. I'm not sure I was really in the mo... Read more
Summers should be easy -- why aren't they?
Monday, August 02, 2010      8 comments

The abundance of fresh, healthy foods available in summer ought to mean that it's even easier to lose weight. The longer daylight hours (altho they are getting shorter, have you noticed? Wish I'd cottoned on to the beauty of a very-early morning... Read more
Mindful exercising
Saturday, July 31, 2010      7 comments

It's not just eating we have to be mindful of. How many times do you just go thru the motions? Get to the gym, and just wanna get it over with? Just want to get your 10,000 steps in any way you can? Well, yesterday I made sure my exerc... Read more
A few good mentors
Friday, July 30, 2010      4 comments

That's what I'm looking for. One of the things I read recently, which I shared, was to seek out mentors. People who have done what you want to do. Follow them, find out their secrets. So I'm looking for a few good mentors. People who have b... Read more
10 things to look at if you're maintaining & you don't want to
Thursday, July 29, 2010      13 comments

I am very, very weary of gaining & losing the same few pounds. So what do you do when you're weary & really all you want to do is throw in the towel? You try to inspire someone else, of course! So if you're in there with me, losing & gainin... Read more
Surround yourself with the right people
Tuesday, July 27, 2010      2 comments

Before I get to that -- well, I'll bet you already pretty much know what I'm going to say -- just wanted to thank everyone for the comments on my photos. Always appreciated. Probably would have helped if I'd thrown on a bra (sorry if that's TMI)... Read more
Focus & before photos
Sunday, July 25, 2010      10 comments

Above is me at the start of my journey, and now. Now wonder I no longer wear that tank top -- it's not particularly flattering. I mean, I know I've lost almost 30 pounds, I... Read more
One day of mindless eating
Friday, July 23, 2010      3 comments

No, don't worry, I'm not being literal here. But how often I wished that I could just eat whatever I wanted -- even for just one meal. Even when I tell myself that I can, I rarely actually let myself. I tell myself I won't count points for a mea... Read more
Imagine, believe, receive
Thursday, July 22, 2010      5 comments

That's what's inscribed on the small silver ring I bought at Target today. They have a variety of rings (online, too, apparently) and bracelets and necklaces inscribed with different words and sayings. This one spoke to me. Actually, sever... Read more
I don't care & more sharing
Wednesday, July 21, 2010      7 comments

As usual, I'm going to ramble a bit today. How often have you thought "I really don't care about why I'm overweight, I just want to get it off"? The key words in that sentence is "I really don't care". Because what you're really saying... Read more
Sharing some recent finds
Tuesday, July 20, 2010      3 comments

One of the nice things about DH being gone is I can be on the computer when I want & for how long I want. Except when my folks were here, of course, because then my Dad hogs it for hours at a time. And shuts down the browser even when I tell him... Read more
Our bad weeks don't define us
Monday, July 19, 2010      4 comments

That's what I told a spark buddy recently. Our bad weeks don't define us; our good weeks do. There WILL be bad weeks, it's just a fact of life. Last week was definitely not one of my best. Nothing major, but just all those little things pil... Read more
