greek yogurt
Monday, August 06, 2012      4 comments

There was a sale on greek yogurt at the grocery store so I finally decided to try it. And....I was underwhelmed. Maybe I didn't get the right kind (I bought chobani) but it tasted really sour. I know greek yogurt is better for you because of ... Read more
more olympics viewing (and more complaining)

I was very happy to see the women's gymnastics team win the gold medal as well as Michael Phelps become the most decorated Olympian in history, but it was kind of anticlimatic watching it 6-8 hours after the fact. Maybe when the 2016 games are ... Read more
olympics viewing

Track and field are my fav events but I did enjoy watching the synchronized diving earlier. NBC's coverage sucks, but the audio on my computer is even worse, so I'm forced to watch the events on TV.... Read more
staying cool with drinks

Not drinking soda has been a lot easier to do in this heat. Cherry coke hasn't been quenching my thirst lately, maybe it never has. I've been drinking a lot more tea (unsweetended) instead of soda, although I know water is best. However, plai... Read more

Anyone won one of these through the daily spins like I did last night? Not sure what to buy with it, if I use it at all.... Read more
weird proportion

I put on a pair of pants I haven't worn in about a year and they fit. Okay, no surprise since I've lost about 11 pounds. But while the khakis were loose in the leg and thigh, it was still a little tight about the stomach. When I was younger, ... Read more
what a difference a week makes
Tuesday, July 10, 2012      0 comments

This time last week, I was struggling with my writing, trying to make a go of a story that just wasn't working. Now, here I am about 7500 words or so into a new story and the momentum is only building. I know I blogged that I would report on m... Read more
getting ready for the 4th of July....

....which means skipping the apple pie and ice cream. I know there are 'diet' apple pie recipes out there but I haven't tasted any of them yet that aren't sad and sorry replicas. Grilled hamburgers and hot dogs with whole wheat buns are okay b... Read more
way too hot
Sunday, July 01, 2012      0 comments

It's the first of July and it feels like the dog days of August. I know I shouldn't complain because the people in the mid-Atlantic states have it worse with the storms caused by the heat that have knocked out power and killed 9 people. And of... Read more
the weather excuse (again)
Wednesday, June 27, 2012      4 comments

Instead of it being too hot to go walking, it's too wet! Tropical storm Debby has been making her presence known for the last 2-3 days with lots and lots of rain. Fortunately, no wind and thunder and lightning (so far), but the sheer amount of... Read more
heading into the weekend
Saturday, June 23, 2012      2 comments

I'm definitely ready for the weekend even though most of it is going to be spent running errands and doing chores. However, I'm looking forward to doing some writing (1200 words last night!) and definitely going to squeeze some relaxation in. ... Read more
spice makes all the difference

I love shrimp, but eating it grilled and broiled has gotten boring. I found a recipe for shrimp creole, which I thought was a diet no-no. But making it with fresh tomatoes, garlic, and fennel made all the difference, so it was delicious and he... Read more
progress, or something like it
Sunday, June 17, 2012      1 comments

Okay, I've been avoiding blogging because I've been avoiding writing. I was determined not to blog again until I had something major to report, like I'd been consisently writing 500 words a day. I haven't been doing that but I have made some p... Read more
best laid plans
Wednesday, June 06, 2012      1 comments

Okay, I didn't write 500 words today. Some other things came up and since I have an early start tomorrow, it didn't get done. Despite not meeting my goal on the first day, I'm not discouraged. However, I still want to hold myself accountable... Read more
tracking things other than diet & exercise
Tuesday, June 05, 2012      0 comments

I can't really think of enough about exercising and dieting to blog everyday so I'll write about writing too. I'll keep track of how many pages I write, or what ideas I've come up with, where I've submitted, etc. I hope that keeping myself a... Read more
