More thoughts on treats
Friday, July 15, 2011      8 comments

Know thyself! We are all in different stages of our journeys, and our personal stages change, too. There was a day I couldn't have a jar of PB in the house brpecause I'd just stand up & eat it by the spoonful. Which is very ironic because now I ... Read more
Just what is a food treat, anyway?
Thursday, July 14, 2011      11 comments

That question is probably one of my biggest struggles, & most likely part of what holds me in a holding pattern. The first week on the wendie plan (pts cycling) I lost a pound; the next I gained 2! yikes! And I wouldn't be at all surprised ... Read more
Must share breakfast & the many faces of hunger
Wednesday, July 13, 2011      9 comments

Ok, breakfast was just so yummy I have to share it. Especially good for those volume eaters like me out there. I call this a pancrepe, because it's not quite a pancake & not quite a crepe: 6 egg whites 1/2 cup oatmeal (uncooked) 1 ... Read more
Vegas & an oldie but goodie (lots of photos - long)
Tuesday, July 12, 2011      7 comments

I was finally able to raid my husband's computer for the photos from Vegas that I wanted (the ones of me). I didn't even take a camera with me, so all the photos I took were with my cell phone. Vegas isn't really all that photogenic unless it's ... Read more
Yup, another fashion shoot
Monday, July 11, 2011      10 comments

I took advantage of DH being home to spend some time at the mall without feeling like I had to rush right home. Usually I'm combining it with other errands and the dogs can only go about 5 hrs, so the truth is I often feel rushed. Which may expl... Read more

Farmer's market + LSD
Saturday, July 09, 2011      8 comments

As in long, slow run, not drugs! This morning I went to the park where the farmer's market is an hour before it began so I could get my LSD in. That worked really well & I'll most likely do it again. Going early insured that I could get a p... Read more
Commitment to movement
Friday, July 08, 2011      6 comments

Most people would probably call me an active person. I walk the dogs an hour a day most days. And on top of that I run, or swim, or do ST, or do yoga, so on & so forth. The real truth, tho, is I'm a slug. Left to my own devices I can sit fo... Read more
Current fav salad + turning a corner
Wednesday, July 06, 2011      10 comments

My current fav salad is a waldorf salad with tuna. So simple, so healthy, so filling! 1/2 bag romaine 1-2 stalks celery, sliced 1 tbsp walnuts 1 apple, diced 1/2 -1 cup grapes 2 tbsp mayo (I use vegenaise) 1 can tuna in olive oi... Read more
Returning to the scene of the crime
Tuesday, July 05, 2011      9 comments

Today I took the dogs to the trail I ran on yesterday, the same trail where a flock of geese had settled in the last time we went there - we cut our walk short because the trail was so covered in goose poop. I noticed yesterday that the gee... Read more

2 bunnies & a deer
Saturday, July 02, 2011      4 comments

It's a really good feeling to know that you've drunk 6 cups of water & knocked out about 4 1/2 miles (even if they were slow run/walk intervals) all by 8 a.m. It just sets the tone for the day! I saw 2 bunnies on my run this morning & I tri... Read more
Structure or free spirit?
Friday, July 01, 2011      12 comments

There is no right or wrong answer, only a right or wrong answer for YOU at this point in YOUR journey. As I was commenting to a spark buddy this morning, I NEED the accountability of my weekly WIs & WW meetings. I spent about 15 or so yrs s... Read more
Every setback is an opportunity to learn & rambling
Wednesday, June 29, 2011      10 comments

I have learned that I can maintain my weight with lighter exercise as long as I pay close attention to what I put in my mouth. I have learned that running, hard as it may seem at times, is addictive & ultimately energizes me. Poor man'... Read more
Challenge yourself!
Tuesday, June 28, 2011      6 comments

I don't remember which spark buddy read this blog, but I'm glad she did because I read it too & I joined up. It's a 1 month challenge, led by sisters (one's a beach body coach!), and you'll get a different challenge, covering mind, body & nutrit... Read more
