A new day #1
Thursday, June 04, 2015      2 comments

After 4 days of unrestrained comfort binging, today I got back on track. Hit my targets, managed to stay away from the junk food even though it was calling my name. It's only one day, but getting through it is picking up my spirits a bit. ... Read more
Back on the wagon
Wednesday, June 03, 2015      4 comments

For the first time in over 6 months, I fell off the wagon last weekend. A super stressful week at work, a girls-only soccer travel weekend without the moderating influence of the husband, and this week is turning out to be even worse than last.... Read more

Soccer weekend traveling w/o laptop + tablet which won't allow blog posts = two days break of daily blogging streak. So the first night I felt a little rudderless. After two nights, I find myself completely uninspired. I mean, more than u... Read more

I was ready for this week to be over a couple of days ago - somehow a new week and a new month feel like a fresh start with the promise of better things to come. I know it's illogical; weeks and months are artificial human constructs, but this ... Read more
Hanging in there

This has been one doozy of a week so far - and I can't wait until it's over! My body is behaving weird. I *think* yesterday I was dealing with first dehydration and then over-hydration, but throw in perimenopause in there as well and really I ... Read more
All out of whack

This morning I woke up with abdominal cramps so painful I could not stand up straight and had to shuffle slowly bent over. After some ibuprofen and copious amounts of water, the pain went away ... only to be replaced with a headache late in the... Read more
Doing unto others
Tuesday, May 26, 2015      5 comments

As much as I like to eat, I also like to feed others. And now that I'm eating less, I seem to want to feed others more. The only logic in that is that I must be enjoying the food vicariously through others, and it's a little silly because I te... Read more
A day for remembering

This long weekend is typically full of barbecues; our street is having a block party today. The street will be closed to traffic and be overrun with our neighbors' kids. Potluck dishes will be shared; a firetruck will stop by and the firefight... Read more
Preparing for a feast
Sunday, May 24, 2015      2 comments

Both of the kids have invited friends for dinner tomorrow so we are preparing for a bbq feast. Shrimp for skewering, ground beef to season for burgers, ribs to marinate, salmon to bake, and brats to grill. We have two salads, corn, pasta, and ... Read more
Sweet ruin

In the "good cop, bad cop" system of parenting, the husband and I take turns being "good" and "bad". But when it comes to food, I'm a soft touch. Having grown up with little, I can't seem to deny our kids anything they want. Fortunately, they... Read more
Worth the time

I guess I'm officially in maintenance now - after my months of PSMF, I have spent the last two months slowly "re-feeding" and ramping up my carbs to my "permanent" maintenance level. I don't bother weighing my veggies anymore since I give mysel... Read more
Now I'm cooking

I no longer have a sandwich at lunch. I skip the free bagels at work. I bake cookies for the family but don't eat them. The only baked goods I've had in the last half year have been the very occasional celebratory cake - and those aren't heal... Read more
Another notch

Another work day, another food event.... Today we took a couple of retiring colleagues out for lunch. The person to my left had a substantial sandwich filled with Korean bbq beef, sriracha mayo, kimchi, cheese, and two sides. The person to my... Read more
Always on my mind
Tuesday, May 19, 2015      3 comments

I think about food a lot. This isn't new, it's not a consequence of my adventures in weight loss. I have always thought a lot about food. It's always been my primary indulgence, the source of my most desired treats. I have never enjoyed fash... Read more
No time to be embarrassed

I had literally 10 minutes for lunch at work today. I had responsibilities at 3 events during the day, couldn't carry a purse in which to stash a real lunch, and didn't want to eat unhealthy food at the reception. In the end, the reception was... Read more
