What is your comfort zone?
Monday, June 27, 2011      10 comments

The dress is gone; the shorts will stay & I might end up blacklisted for returning things, but ultimately that could be a good thing! I checked up on my gold sandals at Marshalls & added another pair of shoes I'm lusting after - but did not buy.... Read more
Need brutal honesty (lots of photos)
Saturday, June 25, 2011      12 comments

We'll get to the title a little later. Ok, I thought I loved the dress in the store. And I really love the back of it -- but who walks into a room backwards? The photos I took yesterday are really bad -- no flash on my cell phone & we haven't ha... Read more
Great expectations
Friday, June 24, 2011      7 comments

You know the week - you ate really well, but you were just so darned hungry - physically, not emotionally - that you ate more than you planned to. Significantly more. Maybe there were 1 or 2 BLTs in there. Ok, being totally honest, more than jus... Read more
My self-diagnosis
Thursday, June 23, 2011      5 comments

Now that my knee is almost back to normal - a week & a half later! - I've done some more sleuthing on the matter. It was never so painful tha I felt the need to see a doctor, assuming, of course, that I had one, so I have to try to figure it out... Read more
That missing puzzle piece
Wednesday, June 22, 2011      11 comments

No, I haven't found it. Seems like that last piece always eludes me. When I hurt my knee, I turned my attention to my nutrition. I've been eating really well for the most part. Altho my knee is much better, it's still not 100% when I do som... Read more
Semi-productive = semi-results?
Tuesday, June 21, 2011      7 comments

Probably gonna ramble here - you've been warned! Yesterday was a semi-productive day. Productive in the food prep department. Not so much in the exercise department. I made chocolatecoveredkatie.co

A journey of self discovery
Monday, June 20, 2011      7 comments

That's what discovering a healthy lifestyle is in a nutshell. It's all about rediscovering yourself, because somewhere along the way you probably lost yourself. About what you like, what you don't like, what you can & cannot be around & so ... Read more
What is up with my body?
Sunday, June 19, 2011      11 comments

Guys, fair warning: this may be TMI for you. So TOM ended Monday, as it was supposed, or so I thought. Then there was several days of spotting, which isn't extremely unusual, just a little unusual . . . mostly because now, over a week since... Read more
Sometimes I really hate having cats
Saturday, June 18, 2011      12 comments

My cats are essentially indoors cats, but they do have what is basically a covered dog run to go out into. And they are very good hunters. I'm doing some yoga this morning when Gizmo comes in & nonchalantly starts going up the stairs - with... Read more
Meditating meals
Friday, June 17, 2011      6 comments

I thought I was a mindful eater. I don't read, watch tv, or even listen to music while eating. I sit down & eat off of real plates. But then I realized one day that my mind is usually going a million miles while I eat . . . writing blogs i... Read more
It's not when you eat, it's what you eat
Wednesday, June 15, 2011      11 comments

We've all heard that standard advice: don't eat after ____pm, cause your metabolism slows down & it will just get stored as fat. Nighttime eating isn't my problem, so I've always pretty much ignored it. Not to mention the fact that it's pretty r... Read more
More GSFs & running thoughts
Tuesday, June 14, 2011      9 comments

GSFs = grocery store finds. No, I still haven't tried the amy's light & leans . . . really, I just never eat frozen meals anymore (I also don't work at the moment). But bean & cheese enchilada? I will, at some point. I also found Probar's H... Read more
Peaks, valleys & knowledge is power
Monday, June 13, 2011      8 comments

Life is a series of peaks & valleys, and that allows you to learn about yourself. Yesterday's race was definitely not my best. It's the first race where I was truly hindered by my body - one of my slowest races to date no doubt because of t... Read more
From 5k to 8 miles
Sunday, June 12, 2011      13 comments

It was just about a year ago that I ran my very first, very slow 5k, after a lifetime of non-running. I've been active for probably the last 20 yrs, but didn't become a runner til a couple of years ago. My goal last year was to run a 5k; th... Read more
What's your intention?
Saturday, June 11, 2011      3 comments

The holistic vet suggested putting a warm teabag on the lump on Gizmo's tail several times a day. I don't think she thought I'd be able to do it - but he's a different cat with me than he is at the vets & he LOVES the extra attention - from me, ... Read more
