Wednesday, November 25, 2009      2 comments

So, my dizzy spell on Sunday taught me that I need to do things a little differently. Sparkpeople's calculated calorie intake is simply not enough for me. I have adjusted my daily intake to 1800 (that's 200 more than the calculated range). I am ... Read more

2 Cheat Days in a Row and I've lost weight!?

This week I had two cheat days in a row. I ate a big bag of chips during those two days, had a chocolate bar and I ate out twice in one day - a veggie sub and a veggie burger with onion rings for dinner last night. The rest of my meals were goo... Read more

Today I decided to reward myself with a small treat. I was at the grocery store and I saw Bridge Mixture in the bulk food bins, so I bought just a handful of it. On the drive home I was thinking about how much I was going to enjoy my chocolat... Read more
