Down Another Pound
Friday, December 11, 2009      2 comments

It feels so good to have reversed the holiday season trend of weight gain. This was the time I feared when I began SP some 10 months ago, namely, the time when I lost motivation and stopped caring and just put the weight back on. But thanks be t... Read more
Losing that Winter Weight Already
Thursday, December 10, 2009      1 comments

I gained a few pounds over the last few weeks and quickly decided that was NOT okay. So I've been working hard and, thank God, I'm down several pounds already. I'm still 3 pounds away from where I was but I'm halfway back and that feels REALLY g... Read more

I rode my bike 2,500 miles this year so I'm not exactly out of shape, and yet I've always hated running and have never been able to run for very long. As I thought about how to keep myself in shape this winter, I decided to take up running (indo... Read more

Good Movie, Bad Decision
Friday, December 04, 2009      3 comments

My daughter and I watched a great movie last night, "The Blind Side." As good as the movie was, my decision at the theater was bad--I had a small popcorn (no butter at least), a box of junior mints, and a large icee. Oh, what was I thinking? I g... Read more

I'm traveling back home today and I'm so grateful. I haven't had my fill of spinach in days, and my body's crying out for all kinds of good stuff it's been denied since I've been here. Eating well is hard when you're traveling, especially in a c... Read more

Picked up a Couple Pounds but I'll Lose them Quickly
Saturday, November 28, 2009      2 comments

I think it's mostly "water weight" because I can't imagine gaining three pounds with one Thanksgiving meal, but the scale's been up 3 since Thursday. But through disciplined eating and exercise I'll take those back off very quicly. The question ... Read more

Well, I did overeat yesterday but most of what I ate was good stuff--lots of fruits and veggies. But knowing that my lifestyle has changed so much I was able just to relax and enjoy the day--and the food! Happy T-day weekend, everyone.... Read more
