Kicking the Soda Habit
Sunday, March 31, 2013      8 comments

It’s been at least six weeks since I last had soda, maybe more. I’ve lost track -- I’m no longer at the point where I need to say “OMG, it's been ____ weeks without soda!” Happily! Fortunately, I’d cut down on soda about a month or two ... Read more
Finally Forty
Thursday, January 17, 2013      5 comments

Well, after months and months of trying to lose weight before the big 4-0, the actual day finally arrived almost a month ago. I had a fantastic birthday weekend. I went to Chicago and met with all my old friends who live there. We had some de... Read more

I know that this is a little weird since I haven’t posted a blog in so long, but the subject of this blog is McDonald’s. Or, as it’s called in Japanese, Ma-ku-do-na-ru-do. (Note: The Japanese pronunciation has nothing to do with this blog, bu... Read more
September Results
Monday, October 01, 2012      4 comments

The results are in, and ... drumroll ... it’s officially a B- for September. That’s not too bad of a grade, but it’s a little misleading, because the first half of the month I earned an A-. For the first two weeks, I stuck with my meal plan t... Read more
September So Far
Thursday, September 13, 2012      3 comments

Things are going fairly well. I’ve lost 6 pounds. I know that that’s partly because I’m just starting out again -- I’m in the “honeymoon stage” of weight-loss right now. But still, I’m pleased. In the past, I’ve been this determined and had ... Read more
Questions and Concerns
Sunday, September 02, 2012      4 comments

OK, so I’m still feeling good that I set a big goal for myself yesterday. I’m going to work hard to meet it. I did pretty well yesterday. I did several 15 minute exercise stints, and I did my back exercises. As for eating, I cooked my meals ... Read more
Aiming High - My Three Month Goal
Saturday, September 01, 2012      4 comments

A new month. A new chance to do well. That’s good! But there’s also bad news, too. Now it’s just over three months until my 40th birthday, and I haven’t lost the weight I wanted to. Not that I’ve really had a specific goal in mind. I just ... Read more
Pick 5: Strategies to Prevent Overeating
Sunday, August 12, 2012      5 comments

Ugh -- I’m still having trouble with overeating in the evening. It’ll help that the Olympics are over now, so I’ll be watching less TV. That should help cut down on the snacking somewhat. But I know it’ll still be a struggle. So, I am g... Read more
Week 1 Back on Track
Monday, August 06, 2012      2 comments

Well ... one week over. It didn’t start off too well. In spite of making three day’s worth of food Sunday night, Monday did not go well at all. There were some problems at work, my back hurt, for some reason my eyes were killing me. I know th... Read more
Weekend Report Card
Monday, July 30, 2012      2 comments

Well ... not too bad. Not perfect, but not terrible. My biggest success was with my food preparation. I can honestly say that I am about as prepared as I possible can be for the next three days. Today I cooked/assembled/pre-portioned

Weekend Plans: Preparation, Preparation, Preparation
Saturday, July 28, 2012      1 comments

Last weekend, I took the time Sunday evening to prepare my meals for Monday and Tuesday, and it really helped. But the weekend before that, my kitchen was such in bad shape that by the time I’d done all the dishes and cleaned up, it was too lat... Read more
Back in the Saddle Again
Sunday, July 22, 2012      5 comments

I’m trying again. I only have a little over 4 months before a BIG birthday, so I am trying yet again. Things haven’t been going really smoothly for me lately. I’ve been at my new job, in my new town, for a year now. The big benefit was getti... Read more

Saturday, November 12, 2011      2 comments

Wow, it’s really amazing how the number 11 keeps popping up, isn’t it? It keeps popping up in my life, at any rate. This week is the 11th week of classes for me. My beloved Cards just won their 11th World Series. And I’ve been planning to tr... Read more
My New Life - Part 1
Monday, August 08, 2011      5 comments

Well --- I’ve done it! A new life. This includes a new job, a new apartment, and a new city. In other words, the works. I’m finally starting to feel semi-settled now. I’ve been at the new job for 2 weeks. I’ve been in my new apartment for ... Read more
April Update
Sunday, April 03, 2011      4 comments

Wow, this is my first blog in a long while. There's been a lot going on for me lately. I feel I am at a crossroads with my career and my life. March was pretty much a lost month for me. It took the limited energy I had to just function at al... Read more
