Do you ever get in a rut? I know I do! This evening, just the thought of tracking...again...almost made me want to throw in the towel:( Sometimes when I feel that way, changing things up - be it in exercise or food choices - can shake me ou... Read more

My oldest granddaughter has Asperger's Syndrome (a mild case), and it's been interesting watching her develop. She can come up with some of the funniest off-the-cuff things to say (and always in a loud voice, which is typical of Asperger's, I'v... Read more

Those of you who are keeping up with me - for inspiration or just a good laugh - will know I had a big splurge for lunch yesterday. Our hospital honored auxilian volunteers with a gala luncheon, fresh-cut flowers in goblets, individual gifts, an... Read more

Tomorrow, our local hospital is having an Auxilian (volunteer) Open House. There will be tours, showing of auxiliary scrapbooks (one of which I've been diligently working on), honoring of the volunteers, enlistment opportunities and refreshments... Read more

Here's my recipe for the great, healthy main dish I blogged about the other day. I won't wait so long before making it again next time. Thought I was gonna have to fight hubs off at lunch for the last of the leftovers! ... Read more
"Beefing-up" on the protein
Saturday, April 09, 2011      4 comments

Been doing some testing to see ways I can avoid being hungry. I've begun to eat more dried beans, had healthy carb/protein snacks in between meals, guzzle H20 until I'm ready to float away, consume plenty of whole grains and fiber, and drunk mi... Read more

I don't know much about cooking wth spices except traditional ones: poultry seasoning, oregano, cinnamon, etc. However, I was trying to dress up the healthy-eating staple - ... Read more
Busy hands:)

I read a good hint on someone's page about keeping your hands occupied, and that can help you avoid overeating. Good point! I worked on our hospital scrapbook and got a few pages completed today. In addition to "scrapping", I also enjoy creating... Read more
Trackin' and truckin'

Yesterday was our senior adult luncheon at church, and I was thankful for a good assortment of non-starchy veggies and entrees of baked ham and chicken. I did eat a bit more than usual, but did fairly well. Last night was a fund-raiser banquet ... Read more
The challenge of prioritizing
Monday, April 04, 2011      2 comments

I've worked my way through the first forty-or-so pages of "The Spark", and already have many dog-eared pages and underlined sentences. One thing that stood out is the importance of goal-setting, and I realize I've been very lax with that. Since... Read more
A surprising venture!

As part of the "5 K My Way" team, I've been in training for the 5 K walk for 4 weeks. The 5th week is supposed to be the "virtual race". After not being able to push past two miles last week, I was thinking I'd not be ready this week. This ... Read more
Calorie differential
Saturday, April 02, 2011      1 comments

I enjoy checking the "calorie differential" section under "reports". Today, it looks really good at -500. There is a disclaimer on the link that says Sparkpeople does not recommend the use of that, but that it was added because it was requested.... Read more

This is a photo of a sign I saw in a friend's office. It makes us grin, but it really could be spoken by someone who's losing his or her battle of weight control. Got me thin... Read more

I'll be on a black and blue diet tomorrow (black coffee and blue Jello), with a bit of yellow and green on the side (lemon Jello, green Gatorade and some salty broth). Can you guess what I'm getting ready for? (Yes, that's a rhetorical question!... Read more
The Chinese Buffet
Sunday, March 27, 2011      7 comments

Hubby asked yesterday if I wanted to visit our favorite Chinese restaurant; I think he was surprised when I said, "yes". Decided to take a well-deserved break, but wanted to practice mindful eating with a few splurges. Think I did pretty well, a... Read more
