Day 13: Water is the Magic Elixir
Tuesday, June 28, 2011      5 comments

I was discussing colds with my co-worker this morning. She has a nasty one that has moved into her chest. It's causing her to cough a lot and so her throat is becoming sore. Since she sings in church, the cough is not only annoying and painfu... Read more
Day 10-12 Whole Wheat Pasta Just Does Not Work
Monday, June 27, 2011      10 comments

I love whole wheat foods. I prefer whole wheat bread over white (except for cucumber sandwiches and BLTs, but they're another story). I love whole grain cereals and like using whole wheat flour when I cook. It tends to have a richer, earthier... Read more

Friday, June 24, 2011      0 comments

Today is the last day of my rotten boy's day camp. Since it's right down the road from my office, I have been picking him up for lunch and taking he to some of the downtown Lexington restaurants. But today, for his last day, we packed up a lun... Read more
Day 8 - I finally cooked at home last night
Thursday, June 23, 2011      1 comments

Last night was not much less chaotic than the previous three nights, but somehow I managed to run by the grocery store and get home before seven to make dinner. I love to cook. I love eating meals at home. They're always better. But time alw... Read more
Day 8: Lessons from Comic Book Heroes
Wednesday, June 22, 2011      3 comments

So, I took the youngin' to see Green Lantern last night. I read the comic book when I was younger. It wasn't one of my favorites, but I'd liked it enough to remember the background. Basically, the will is the greatest force of energy in th... Read more
Day 7: Planning is everything, now to just follow through
Tuesday, June 21, 2011      1 comments

It's Day 7 of my daily journal and I have been smashed in the face with a reality of which I am so totally aware. However, knowing the problem and knowing how to fix it never seems to be enough. The Booger Boy has day camp all this week.... Read more
Day 4-6: The weekends are not Spark Blog Days
Monday, June 20, 2011      1 comments

It is now Day 6 of my attempt to record my health journey. I forgot to mention in the first blog that I would probably not blog on the weekends. They tend to be super busy and I try to post in my Blogger account. So, Mondays will be my catch ... Read more
Day Three - The husband is not feeling the love
Friday, June 17, 2011      3 comments

It's a good thing I don't let unpleasant beginnings destroy an entire day. First, my husband's alarm went off at 5 am while he was in the shower. This happens often and irritates, but is not usually a big deal. But, then, 15 minutes later ... Read more
Day Two

Feeling much better over yesterday's female aches. That first day is just a real pain in the tuckus. It's a beautiful, gorgeous day in Ky, and I'm stuck at work. I am leaving early. But so I can go to lunch with my aunt and then take m... Read more
Day One
Wednesday, June 15, 2011      1 comments

In an attempt to keep myself on track, I am going to submit a daily blog entry chronicling this journey towards health. So, most of them will be boring, since I usually only blog when there's something I find extraordinarily interesting enough ... Read more
Never been big on resisting temptation
Tuesday, June 14, 2011      3 comments

Of course, this is probably why I've ballooned so much and had such a hard time getting weight off. When I was a teenager, I started earning my own money which also meant I could start buying my own snacks and pops down at the shopette. Natura... Read more

A couple of months ago, my husband couldn't stop talking about the new barefoot movement. He purchased a pair of Fila shoes that were supposed to simulate barefoot walking while protecting your feet from the elements. With the exception of the... Read more
In charge

I work for a health insurance company. They like to encourage healthy habits in their employees mostly to reduce the odds of obesity related payouts. But still, it's a good thing they do. They have challenges a couple of times a year where... Read more

I have been lately. There's so much to do and not much time in which to do it. Which of course, leaves me little time to do what I need to do and definitely not enough energy. The boy's soccer is almost done, so that's a relief. The kids wil... Read more
Beginning again
Tuesday, March 01, 2011      3 comments

Well, last year I just dropped the ball. Lost my job due to restructuring at the beginning of the year and it took me over 9 months to find a new one. You'd think the stress incumbent in this situation would have led to weight gain, but no. I... Read more
