How Long DId it Take Before You Could Do a Real Pushup?
Tuesday, November 27, 2012      5 comments

I can't do a pushup. In fact, I have never been able to do a pushup. This is a skill I'd like to acquire, especially as I approach fifty and am already losing bone density by the minute. I need muscles to hold up all my brittle bits! I have... Read more

The Other Side

Ugh. That's all I can say about the last nine months. Last February, my husband said he had been offered a job in another state. His current job was a source of tremendous stress and he wasn't sure he'd even have the job within the ne... Read more
Intuition isn't Enough
Sunday, June 03, 2012      4 comments

Let me preface this by saying I am not a Debbie Downer. I am an optimistic person. Even though things might get tough, I know things will always get better. When I write blogs here, it's usually to process my thoughts and feelings, the more bot... Read more
Hypocrite or Addict. It Doesn't Matter...

I have been around but life has been hectic. We are moving to another part of the country at the beginning of July so I've been in the midst of selling a house, buying a house, looking at new schools, and dealing with angry teens and my own grie... Read more
Again. Again. Again. Fully Tethered to Fake Food.
Thursday, December 29, 2011      5 comments

Here I am. Again. The good news is that I am not the person I was four years ago when I first stumbled onto Spark. Back then, I had no desire to exercise or eat well. Wine and sugar were my medications of choice. I knew I needed to lose wei... Read more
Notes to Self
Friday, November 04, 2011      5 comments

Every time I open the pantry (or fridge or go to the grocery store or go anywhere where there is food), certain foods generate an immediate reaction when I see them. (This morning it was Cheese Nips.) I see the container and can taste the food r... Read more
What I Chose NOT to Eat
Tuesday, October 11, 2011      7 comments

These are foods my body immediately said "yes" to but my mind and actions eventually said "no" to. Sometimes the strength is in recognizing the paths NOT taken. 10.21.11 200 - cookies 10.20.11 400 - chocolate chips 100 - almonds ... Read more
The Calories that Could-Have-Been
Thursday, October 06, 2011      5 comments

4A-HEALTHY-BMI wrote a blog recently about the calories she did not eat. It really put into perspective the choices we make on a day-to-day basis and how they impact our well-being. I am stealing her idea. (If you haven't read her blogs, t... Read more

I follow this woman's blog, A Daily Dose of Fit. Perhaps you do too. Anyway, here's a quick post she did as a preview to the NPD Group study. Interesting stuff. I know I will be on the lookout for the full report. tarasabo.blogspot.... Read more
Not Much to Say
Monday, September 12, 2011      5 comments

I don't have much to say but feel the need to get some things out there today. I am holding steady. In spite of my period, my weight is stable. That's good. I didn't get enough vegetables in over the weekend. So it's time to get back i... Read more

For those who are Princess Bride fans, I couldn't resist using that word this morning. I went above calories yesterday. I didn't really pay attention to what I ate. I didn't exercise either. Yet, I got on the scale this morning and it revea... Read more

Today's word is "unsettled." It seems to be a common theme with me. In fact, I think this word has already made an appearance here in recent months. It means, "not fixed or stable; without established order; unorganized; disorganized." Firs... Read more
Somebody Finally Wrote a Book About It

Mindless eating. . . Here's a link to a brief article about the book:

This doesn't have to do with healthy living, eating, weightloss or exercise. Today's word is "heartbroken" which means, "crushed with sorrow or grief." A friend of the family, a young mother of three kids ages 2, 4 and 11, has been fig... Read more
