A possibly challenging week eating-wise
Monday, August 15, 2011      3 comments

On Thursday we have a company picnic (altho it might rain). And on Saturday we're going on a food tour in Saratoga - might rain then, too, but the tour goes on rain or shine. Not really a huge fan of picnic food. Don't like hamburgers, not ... Read more
Reward schedules
Sunday, August 14, 2011      8 comments

When I mentioned that the necklaces I want as rewards are on sale & could be sold out when I earn them as rewards, one buddy suggested that I buy them now & not wear them til I've "earned" them. To my mind, that doesn't work - for me; it mi... Read more

My morning yoga
Friday, August 12, 2011      6 comments

Today there was no morning yoga, because it's a rest day & tomorrow will be a long-ish run so there will be yoga later today. But since I mentioned my routine & how much I feel it benefits me both physically & spiritually, I thought i'd also sha... Read more

At least it feels that way. Altho I'm a bit fearful about today's WI. I KNOW I have done every thing in my power, but I'm still feeling bloated. Course lately it seems as tho I gain when I think I've lost & lose when I think I've gained. Ba... Read more

A few people took a remark I made about Gywneth Paltrow the wrong way yesterday - they thought I was being rather catty & that actually wasn't my intention. Normally I wouldn't write a blog to refute comments, but I think they missed what is - t... Read more
Honesty is a full length bathroom mirror
Tuesday, August 09, 2011      12 comments

We installed a new medicine cabinet over the weekend to go with the new vanity. We took the mirror that was there & hung it on the bathroom door. My husband complained that he doesn't lime seeing himself naked getting into & out of the shower bu... Read more
Chatarungas & planks, oh my!

I could really feel my triceps aching last week & finally figured out that it's due to those extra 10 minute morning yoga sessions. Yes, small things really do add up! They can add up in a bad way, too. All calories are NOT created equal, i... Read more
Yesterday's report card

Started out the day with my tuna waldorf salad. Gotta love a plan cause I sure wouldn't choose that if I hadn't planned it & I'm glad that I did. Actually, I started out the day with a 10 minute yoga session followed by 10 minutes of flexibility... Read more
Teaching an old dog new tricks

I had my tuna waldorf salad for breakfast, oh yes I did! Going out for lunch with the family today & since I've decided on quesadillas for lunch, the rest of the day really needs to be spot-on nutritionally. The cats, btw, thought it was a ... Read more
Refocused . . . I hope!

So I spent some time thinking about goals, what I should focus on & what's not working for me. What's not working: -No definable goals. Duh! Better to make them even if you don't meet them - at least you're working towards something. ... Read more
Focusing on the right things
Thursday, August 04, 2011      5 comments

At my WW meeting today, my leader talked about being unfocused thus summer. That got my attention. I don't think I'm unfocused, but am I focusing on the right things? I am not writing down daily, weekly, or monthly goals - and I haven't in ... Read more
Am I too hard on myself? Or not hard enough?

That's the $64,000,000 question, right? Much of July was spent at the higher end of the range my body has settled into & I felt every pound. I felt so bloated. My face looked so bloated - doesn't take much for my face to look bloated. ... Read more
It ain't over til the fat lady aches & ramblings
Tuesday, August 02, 2011      10 comments

As I've noted before, I will never have 6 pack abs; I'd have to eat really, really clean to achieve that. But my abs aren't terrible & my obliques are quite good. But they all get fluffy if they aren't paid extra attention - almost every day. ... Read more

DH is always angling for a deal. Usually we eat out once a week, on the weekends. He kept asking me where I wanted to eat out . . . I think he felt that food would soothe all the stress I went thru with Simba last week (who thankfully SEEMS back... Read more
