Keeping it Going
Tuesday, February 01, 2011      3 comments

I have to admit that I have never stuck to any kind of exercise or diet plan for long. I have been doing SP for 4 weeks and 2 days now and I'm still going strong. I got in 15 minutes of heart-pumping exercise today (that's good for me!) and I... Read more

I'm feeling a little frustrated. I have been on the program for 3 1/2 weeks now and have been doing pretty well. I have been trying to get in at least 10 minutes of exercise every day. I'm building up to the marathon exercise sessions that I ... Read more

I really feel like I have been doing so well on the program -- well, at least the diet portion. I have been tracking everything I eat and being truthful about it. I haven't been drinking (wine/beer) nearly as much as usual. I have even run up... Read more
Turkey burgers
Friday, January 07, 2011      4 comments

I ate more than I should have last night for dinner and the bad thing is, I knew I was eating more than I should but I couldn't stop myself. We had turkey burgers, which doesn't seem so bad, but on sourdough bread and with mayo and cheese and I... Read more

Well, here goes nothing! I have never blogged before, although I am a professional writer so you would think I would be used to writing... I'm on day 4 of this program. It's Jan. 6 and today would have been my (step) dad's 76th birthday. ... Read more
