I managed to avoid the cookies today!!!!! A whole plateful of them were sitting in the back of the classroom all day and I stuck with my pita bread, hummus, and cantaloupe; my coffee, water, and some of the 100% fruit juices that were on the ot... Read more

Another day with no sweets or soda...wow! I actually made myself get on the treadmill after work today after slackin' off for at least a week. It actually felt really good! Did Week5 Day 2 of the 5K your way rookie program then spent anoth... Read more

No sweets, no soda. Craving ice cream again, but didn't give in. Driving back from my folks, I was thinking about the different places to stop for lunch. Nothing particularly healthy came to mind except Jason's Deli of The Grit in Athens. ... Read more

Another day with no sweets and no soda. Tempted again with yummy looking lemon icebox pie and cookies at the funeral, but I resisted. The fresh fruit was much yummier! It was good to see my cousins that I hadn't seen in a while; toward th... Read more

Still have managed to survive another day without sugar or soda...although I've been itching for ice cream, milkshake, soda... Soda water (without sugar or artificial sweetener) and veggie pieces helped with the drive to my folks'. Ended... Read more

Well, day 6 of no sweets or soda. Helped a friend move today and did manage to avoid the donuts and sodas. Starting to crave a soda. I like the carbonation and I just flat out like Coca Cola (been doing Coke Zero's over diet coke) but I'm tryi... Read more

My aunt (mom's sister) passed away today, peacefully. At first, I wanted soda, or candy, or something sweet to make me feel better. That's what I would have done before; that's what I did when her brother died back in '92, except I probably had... Read more
7/6/11: Day 3?
Wednesday, July 06, 2011      0 comments

Well, I didn't think about it at the time, but the recipe I used for zucchini bread had sugar and brown sugar in it. I only ate one piece. Once I realized it, I quit. Arghhh...that stuff'll definitely sneak up on ya! While I was in the kitchen ... Read more

Another day without sugar, sweets, soda. Instead of getting ice cream while at the grocery store, I made it out with what I went for and ate the snack that I'd packed for work but hadn't eaten. Went out to dinner with my other half to my favor... Read more

Today went well. No candy. No sweets. No soda. My problem is once I start, I can't stop. Sugar's harder to quit than alcohol was. Feeling a little anxious, uncertain, overwhelmed, blue...good thing is that I know it won't last; that it's ... Read more

I cannot believe how hard it is for me to give up sugar. I did great following the diet recommendations and staying within my ranges for a couple months then in June I started struggling. Some candy, cookies, donuts at work, ice cream in the hou... Read more

Well, mindless eating/grazing has got to go! This past week, it was sodas and appetizers at dinner (they were complements of the instructor). Gained 5 pounds between that and the ice cream dinners prior to leaving for the class. I managed to ... Read more
June 7 Update

It's been nearly 3 months since I started SP and, looking back, I've actually made a lot of changes! My weight's slowly dropping, my portions are back under control, I'm eating a LOT healthier, eating at home more than out, making sure I've got... Read more
Overcoming inertia
Tuesday, May 24, 2011      2 comments

Well, I let myself get off a regular schedule of working out at least 10 minutes before work or on my days off. After nearly 2 weeks of not getting any good cardio, I need to make a concerted effort to get back on track and get moving. I was d... Read more
Attack of the sweet tooth
Saturday, May 21, 2011      3 comments

Well, so much for following my healthy eating pattern today. Totally blew it. Somebody brought in donuts today at work and I managed to resist for about 5 hours then I yielded. Unfortunately, once I eat something sweet, I can't eat just one. ... Read more
