Food Shame
Tuesday, July 13, 2010      3 comments

Earlier this evening, I was reading a blog on sparkpeople. In it, the writer was talking about having a fast food habit. I can totally relate. Years ago, when my husband decided to go vegetarian, he wanted me to join him. Feeling guilt... Read more

Take care of me vs. take care of the world
Sunday, June 06, 2010      2 comments

We all are alloted 24 hours per day. We have to balance our time between work, exercise, family, diet, etc. Today, I have said "yes" to things I'd rather not do. My husband, who lived in a city with public transportation for most of his... Read more
The Fit Test
Thursday, May 27, 2010      1 comments

I read an article here about a fit test that you can do. All you need to do is walk for one mile, and time yourself. Your timing diagnoses how fit you are. According to the fit test, I am in poor shape. However, this fit test doesn't take in... Read more

I remember reading an article about a study done showing that people ate more calories over the weekend, and overestimated their activity level. This weekend, I tried to be more conscious about the food I put into my mouth. I think I did... Read more
Behind the Camera
Saturday, May 15, 2010      2 comments

When I'm behind the camera, I'm in the moment. Completely focused (pardon the pun). My weight does not matter; nothing matters, other than what is in my viewfinder. Food is the furthest thing from my mind. Maybe the key to my weight loss is ... Read more
Teaching
Friday, May 14, 2010      2 comments

About 10 years ago, I became a yoga enthusiast. I enjoyed it so much, and felt so strongly about the health benefits it offered, that I went to school to become a certified yoga instructor. During this time, I was overweight, and self-consciou... Read more
Knitting as a distraction for emotional eating
Thursday, May 13, 2010      3 comments
