What an insane week...I can't even describe how exhausting it was. Chaos all around me, and me just trying to stay calm. Friends having major life traumas...deaths, divorces. And all one or two degrees of separation from me. Did I eat bread ... Read more
Lost 1 pound since Monday, yea!
Yea! I have successfully slammed on the breaks and am now back on my path to health and wellness!
I lost one pound since Monday...and shockingly 1 inch from my waist. I must have been bloated. But I did notice that my pants felt better t... Read more
Today I had the identical breakfast as yesterday, only my boyfriend cooked and served me two eggs instead of one. Yesterday I only had one egg because I was trying to add carbs (toast) and have less fat (one less egg). The difference was about... Read more
Let's lose the last 18 pounds already!
I think it's time to stop jacking around with this weight loss business and either decide to do it or not. I'm totally tired of doing it halfway. It's been one thing after another: overwork, depression, falling down the darned stairs. A zill... Read more
Whew! Finally a shift in the winds...
Autumn in Dallas is a very subtle thing. My joke is that the only way you can tell it's fall in Dallas is that women start wearing darker nail polish. Otherwise it's still 90 degrees and it feels an awful lot like summer. But there's a slight... Read more
A thousand calories in one sitting...
To be honest, I wasn't looking forward to dinner...
One of my oldest friends split with her partner of 9 years, and six weeks later, I'm going to dinner at her house to meet her new girlfriend.
Isn't that a little fast?
So I've ... Read more
I gained back 5 pounds (oh, my!)
I heave a large and heavy sigh as I begin writing this. October 1 and a Monday, to boot, and I'm having one of those "time-to-get-back-on-the-wagon
I'm sighing because I knew I was gaining weight. And I knew I was overeati... Read more
I lost 45 pounds this past year and I feel great.
This week marked my one year anniversary of weight loss. A year ago, somewhere above the 190 pound mark, I decided to start walking a little a few times a week. I agreed to eat a few more salads and drink a few less martinis. I picked up the ... Read more
So I'm driving past Snappy Salads, my favorite salad place in the world. Once a month I go to the rolfer and I always stop for a salad on my way there or back. I can get a large salad with all my favorite fresh veggies, organic greens, lowfat ... Read more
Real mowing with my new reel mower
For my 44th birthday I gave myself a present: my own lawnmower. A reel lawnmower....no motors, no gas! This is the old fashioned kind that you push and the grass is cut. 100% human powered.
And I proceeded to mow the lawn for the first t... Read more

Yesterday was a day of interesting eating experiments and experiences. After a week of clean eating, it was interesting to see what effect certain foods had on me.
I splurged on a mug of strong coffee with a teaspoon of sugar. Wow. I'm u... Read more
Looking back on a week of clean eating
Okay...I must declare it! I lost 4.5 pounds this week!
And boy did I need it! I've been stuck at or above 150 pounds for three months. I think I just needed to do something BIG to show my body how serious I am about supporting it toward... Read more
Eating Outside the Box - one week of clean eating
Well, it all finally caught up with me. After burning the candle at both ends and in the middle for months, I got sick.
Yeast infection, yuck. Plus a cold sore, double yuck.
I've been feeling less than optimum for weeks...too many bi... Read more
"I'm so tired of feeling fat..." So stop!
My teacher Susan Gregg assigned us an exercise for our "Limitedless Living" class. I am to stand in front of a mirror at least twice a day and tell myself, "I love you," in a sincere and meaningful way. If you're feeling bold, give this one a ... Read more

New goals for the summer
Believe it or not, it's time to start training for the November and December half marathons.
I love it.
Last night I stayed up in front of the computer plotting the next six weeks of training. And getting totally jazzed about it.
