New supporter in my quest for health...
The little guy overheard hubby and I talking about my blood test results and while some of the numbers are improving, some are just frightening and well, he's very sensitive. ANYWAY, I was assuring him that I was doing what I could by eating rig... Read more
I was just looking in the mirror and I see a little bit of an indentation between my jawline and my neck!!

Not exercise per se, but...
I just spent the last hour cleaning/decluttering my kitchen. You guys don't know how HUGE this is. LOL! So I figure that helps me in more ways than one.
1) I wasn't just sitting on my butt on the computer.
2) I'm sweating, so I must have... Read more
Back to tracking food...
I'd stopped tracking my food intake because I know what I'm supposed to eat and how much of it, what I'm supposed to avoid, etc and have been doing real well (or so I thought). I've been a bit more active and was expecting the weight to keep mov... Read more
I've pretty much cut out any sweetener, just drinking water and unsweet iced tea. I ordered a large unsweet tea from McDonald's today and when I took a sip it was Lipton Raspberry Brisk tea. GAG!!! It was SO sweet to me. Guess my tastes are chan... Read more
First day of real exercise
I did 1.25 miles in 31.10 minutes. I'm sure I'll be seeing improvement over time, but I have short legs. :D I feel real good and although I was breathing heavy, it really wasn't that difficult to go that long. I only stopped because I have a te... Read more
Not bad today.
Had a good breakfast, barbecued ribs and broccoli for lunch and then after grocery shopping and making my lunches for the week and starting some laundry, I took a nice nap. Didn't feel like eating, so I didn't. Went swimming for a while and then... Read more
Adjustment to be made...
Okay, new plan here folks. Weekends are okay to cheat within reason. *nods* Yup. Rather than beating myself up over having more carbs than usual, I'm going to go with the flow and just not overdo, like 1/2 a cake or bagel for breakfast, huge sub... Read more
Well, not a super low carb day, but I had fun!
Went to a dear friend's house and had a wonderful time. The only glitch in my eating plan for the day was a small, and I do mean small piece of birthday cake and about a 1/4 cup of chocolate ice cream. I don't feel guilty about it at all and it'... Read more
Sorry I missed yesterday...
There just wasn't much to say. LOL! I stuck to my eating very well, did about 15 minutes of exercise in the pool, not counting vacuuming it. That's about it.
I have to say that I'm starting to get more energy. This morning I got gas in my ... Read more
Update on the restaurant...
Everything went as planned and I had 6 of 8 stuffed mushrooms. They didn't seem to have any bread crumbs in them, so I would guess that most of the carbs came from the mushrooms themselves. :)
I had to run to Costco after to pick up a presc... Read more
Food tracker today...
I'm not using the food tracker today, mainly because stuff I've eaten hasn't been cut and dried easy to enter. Like the muffin I had for breakfast. Since I made it, I didn't feel like fooling with calorie count, carb count, etc., for each indivi... Read more

Hubby wanted to go to Romano's Macaroni Grill tonight for dinner. MAJOR carbs there. I told him I'd look at a menu online and see if I could find anything suitable for me. I love the internet where you can find almost anything. :) I found crab s... Read more
