As many of you know, I have started dating someone new. I have received sweet comments about how attractive he is, and well, how lovely we look together. I thank you for these compliments, but there is really an important lesson underneath thi... Read more

ENOUGH ALREADY!! I have been whining and moaning my way through this horrific sub-zero tundra, and all I have to show for it is a jiggling belly, which just a few short weeks ago was taut. SO... who's getting burned by all of this whimpiness? ... Read more

FINALLY! I am feeling the way I used to feel before; can't wait to get to the gym, my energy is back, and my appetite has stabilized again. PHEW! My physician brother just told me that I have tendonitis in my elbow and I have to be careful, b... Read more

I have been hanging out with a six-week long plateau! Arrrrgh! Okay, the sunny side of this story is that I didn't gain any weight during the holidays. BUT... the holidays are three weeks over, and I haven't started to lose again yet, either.... Read more
Not "second nature" again yet... but it's on the way! :-)

Great food and exercise day! I really feel back on track for the first time since... no, not the holidays.... since Mom died. That's when I really got off track. The holidays just made things worse. I am "doing the do," but I have not felt t... Read more

After I lost my Mom last month, I've had to stay away from yoga. I find it a deeply moving experience, and although I have desired to get back to the mat to help heal, each time I get ready for a yoga class, I stop in my tracks and say, "I'm no... Read more

Life in November was quite the roller coaster. I re-connected with a dozen great friends from New York, all of whom I miss with all my heart. My friends noticed the big changes in my appearance, and I FELT healthier, happier and more confident... Read more

I got a knee injury in a fitness class on Monday and couldn't work out until today, four days later. I was frustrated and moping around every time a class I adored came up (yoga, salsa...) but here's something wonderful I learned - I LOVE FITNE... Read more

This weekend was the great seasonal clothing swap. I have a lot of clothes, so my bedroom can only house one season at a time. Last Spring, as I put away my winter clothes, I had a number of items that I loved, but they weren't CLOSE to fittin... Read more

Sigh. Well, yesterday I lost sight of my health goals. I ate salt with abandon, and today it shows. From the moment I got out of bed, I could feel the bloat. I retain water like a resevoir, AND I love salt - what a combination! Well, the sc... Read more
Sweet, sweet success!

So, yesterday, I run into an ex-boyfriend. I tend to remain friendly with people even though the romantic relationship didn't work out, so I was really happy to see him. I was all bubbly and lively during our conversation and asked how he was.... Read more

The diet-breaking monsters lurk in my cabinets and fridge, and lie in wait (or should I say "weight") until the sun goes down. I will have a perfectly healthy day, then WHAM! Night time. I am new to my area, so I have a very scant social life.... Read more

Okay... okay... breathe... breathe... you can turn this ship around. I have been less careful with my food this week, and the scale is revealing my blunders. It started on Wednesday when I expected the scale to show me 159 at last, and it was ... Read more
