I swear my husband made me do it!
Thursday, September 13, 2012      5 comments

That's my story & I'm stickin' to it. So his birthday is coming up & I asked him what he wanted. He said he needed some shirts & ties . . . now, I know need isn't want, but he's your typical guy - impossible to shop for - so I ran with it. ... Read more
Pump up the volume!

Hmm, whatever happened to Christian slater? So I made this recipe a while back. A pretty simple recipe; essentially a potato pancake, only using diced instead of shredded potatoes. You sautée a little cabbage, then mix that with the potatoe... Read more
Dang, now I have to watch what I eat!

Simba seems to be doing much better; thank you all for your good thoughts! He actually has 2 vet appointments next week - one with the holistic vet, one with a new cats-only vet - hopefully he'll stay ok til then. So I emailed te USAFIT coa... Read more
Are you still hungry? (& some prayers needed)
Sunday, September 09, 2012      6 comments

First off, I need to ask for good vibes, prayers, thoughts for Simba. It seems his pancreatitis is flaring up. It's been a bad week in many ways - won't bore you with the details - but this is my most pressing matter; I'm going away for a few da... Read more
Not all calories are created equal

I was getting set to write this blog, comparing the ingredients of the frozen greek yogurt vs the grahamfuls -- the 2 options I was debating as a snack after my run yesterday. I fully expected the frozen yogurt to have less ingredients, and it d... Read more
How good a time did you have?

One of my buddies at my WW meetings is like me -- has basically stayed the same the last 3 yrs. Except that she's very overweight. Apparently she ate too much last week & gained a fair amount -- and commented before looking "let's see how good a... Read more
So that's why it's so friggin' hard
Wednesday, September 05, 2012      6 comments

I knew this info already, but somehow the article in Fitness magazine about why it's harder for some people to lose than others drove it home: it's all that yo-yo dieting. Essentially, i've hard wired my body to hold onto its fat. That's wh... Read more
Green day
Monday, September 03, 2012      6 comments

I remembered I actually do have one more goal: drink green smoothies as an afternoon snack. Not every day, but I need to come up with how many times I'm shooting for per week so I can measure it. Green day refers to yesterday cause I sure g... Read more
September goals
Sunday, September 02, 2012      6 comments

It's been a long, long time since I've set concrete goals. Too long. 1. Be more positive. Yesterday's blog got me thinking about this. I'm a glass half full gal, but DH is a glass half empty guy & that can rub off. When I'm eating, I p... Read more
Accentuate the positive
Saturday, September 01, 2012      2 comments

I found myself thinking this morning "if only I can just keep this up", but doubting myself, too. And then I thought to myself "you're doing awesome" -- much more positive. So easy to slip into negative self talk. I am back down to my lowes... Read more
5 things I've learned on my healthy journey
Friday, August 31, 2012      10 comments

1. Indulge wisely; moderation is key I really admire those people who eat so cleanly that nothing processed passes their lips. I don't eat a lot of processed food, but I know I have to have some treats or I feel deprived. 2. Peaks & va... Read more
Why I love my WW meeting!
Thursday, August 30, 2012      5 comments

First, I have a great leader. If you don't, try going to a few meetings! I had to try a few when I moved. But I REALLY love my meetings because of the motivation I get from them; I almost always walk away with a renewed feeling of resolve. ... Read more
Running finds
Wednesday, August 29, 2012      6 comments

I've yet to find anything other than trash while running, but I made a couple of cool product finds lately -- and come to a realization. I tried out clandestino banana bars -- clandestinobananabar.com -- 20% off with code ... Read more
Ending with a bang!
Tuesday, August 28, 2012      7 comments

The year, that is. The next few months will be a real whirlwind. My HM is in one month & all that goes with that: the training, getting everything ready for the pet sitters, researching Montreal. Sadly, we will only spend a few days in... Read more
Bend it like Beckham
Friday, August 24, 2012      7 comments

The rules, that is. I am not an all or nothing person: I never feel like I've blown it, so I might as well keep eating badly. But I'm a recovering perfectionist in certain areas of my life; altho in other areas I am far from perfect & it doesn'... Read more
