That was the topic for the weight watchers meeting I went to tonight. I got to thinking about the progress over the past 15 months and my net loss was only 5 pounds. Not bad all things considering. I did identify a lot of barriers, triggers, ... Read more
Here we go....again
Monday, December 26, 2016      5 comments

The only constant is change. Switched jobs to follow my boss and ended up working 6 months of 60 hr weeks with no time to do much of anything. I lasted as long as I could and decided to try to go back to my old job--which I was gratefully able... Read more

Spent three hours today cutting the grass at my old house. Didn't get as much done as I would've liked 'cos it was at least a foot high. My new agent has folks actually looking at it! My old Serenity Farm. My "before" pic was in the early... Read more

Lovin' my Vitamix! I can finally have a cool treat to eat that's not loaded with sugar or artificial sweeteners!!!!!! The green juices are yummy and filling. Haven't been doing as well with exercise this week. I've been feeling a bit off... Read more

I think things are finally starting to settle down a bit. I've got a good job with shorter hours and a really short commute; I also enjoy it. The chaos is dissipating, which is good. Still working on routine and meal planning--a never ending ... Read more

I am so ready for a change! Change takes place every day, but if I want specific things in my life to change, I need to do the leg-work. The only things I have any control over are my thoughts, words, action, reactions, filters, etc. So, it's ... Read more
Time to crawl out of the blender!

Man! 2014 was one busy year!!!! Started new job with a 4 month overlap with the prior (yes, working 2 full-time jobs in two different towns 50 miles apart); got married; ping-longed back and forth between those two towns spending the night at ... Read more
Blood sugar detox....hummmm
Monday, May 19, 2014      1 comments

Well, I'm kinda sorta doing the 10 day blood sugar detox...grains aren't all the way out the door yet. I really like the protein smoothie for breakfast--berries, seeds, avocado, lemon, nut butter, almond milk. Been doing spinach-based salads a... Read more

I am truly amazed that I've stayed within a 5 pound range over the last few months! My schedule at work has been all over the place: days and getting to leave at a normal time, days that end up lasting 15+ hours, 12 hr night shifts. New ... Read more

While cleaning up the loft, I found one of my old Weight Watcher weekly journals that was actually unused! I tried to scan it, but there seems to be a disconnect somewhere. I ended up printing out a tracker I'd generated that also has a daily ... Read more

This sugar addiction has to go! Two days no processed/added sugars or artificial sweeteners. It's too easy to grab candy or donuts or whatever other sweet munchies are sitting around at work…especially when I'm stressed. What used to work b... Read more
Stress...eating is not the answer!
Sunday, September 29, 2013      2 comments

I stress, I eat. I really want somethng to gnaw on. I want something sweet (ice cream and chocolate have done me in this month). I've managed to avoid fast food, although I've had to make a very conscious effort a couple times. It's all emotio... Read more

One thing I've been really noticing this past week, okay--actually paying attention to it, is the amount of chaos in my life. 1--The work schedule's erratic; the only thing consistent is the start time, everything else varies. I have been ha... Read more

Okay, it's been two weeks since I went back to tracking and trying to make some changes. Meat--I have cut back on my meat. I still have a lot of venison in the fridge, so I've been using it for some meals, but most of my meals are vegetari... Read more
10/25/12: still struggling
Thursday, October 25, 2012      4 comments

I have gained 15 pounds since May 1 of this year. I started dating someone, we'd go out to eat a lot, I didn't spend much time working in the garden/yard or getting out exercising. He's in front of his computer and I'm on either my iPhone or iPa... Read more
