Almost Friday
Friday, January 11, 2019      3 comments

This week flew by. Tomorrow is my second weigh day. I'm not sure what to expect, frankly. I stayed vaguely within my calorie limits this week, but there were a few things I didn't track. I like to think I have a good eye for portions but my f... Read more
Can't stop at 11
Tuesday, January 08, 2019      4 comments

So far things have been going well. I hope I didn't derail myself last night eating chocolate-covered almonds. I specifically bought them because I thought 120 calories per a serving of 11 candies would make a great treat snack that I could bu... Read more
Nibbles and Bits
Tuesday, January 08, 2019      1 comments

Tonight, I find myself a little grabby, a nibble here, a little bit there......It's sneaky eating and who, pray tell am I fooling? And what a smooth manipulator hunger is, somehow managing to override common sense and logical facts -- tracker s... Read more

Today I kept my calories low in the bottom half of the day because I knew I'd be in a situation where I couldn't track very well -- a Chinese buffet. I stuck to reasonable portions of healthier options that hopefully did not exceed the thous... Read more
Something to Remember
Saturday, January 05, 2019      0 comments

Yesterday went very well. I was flying high on my success. I didn't spread out my meals well enough though and even though the burrito I made fit into my calorie budget, it was a big meal and I continued eating it after I was full and I became... Read more
Welcome Back

It has been a great day. I lost two pounds and met my first weekly goal! I went to the movies with a totebag full of salad and strawberries and garlic-stuffed olives and felt very nice eating healthy snacks instead of candy and popcorn, which ... Read more
Win or Learn

Today went well. I'm real aware of my hunger and satiety levels and that's helping me quiet the voice in my head that claims I'm hungry and wants to eat. A quick check in with my body has been effective at helping me avoid eating when I want t... Read more
I survived WalMart

Whew.....I made it. After taking my daughter to an appointment we decided to run a few errands on the way home. I totally underestimated how much time it was going to take and I ended up super hungry, dizzy and brain-fogged trying to navigate ... Read more
Cauliflower Fried Rice
Wednesday, January 02, 2019      1 comments

Happy New Year. I am so grateful to be living in an age that has managed to make cauliflower taste like pizza crust and fried rice and mashed potatos. Life is good. I watched the Rose Parade this morning with my mother who, even at 91, still ... Read more
Happy New Year

And so 2018 concludes with a Monday being its last day. Lots of soup and coffee but no temptations today with the possible exception of the sweet white wine I purchased earlier in the month. But I have no intention of bringing in the new year ... Read more
Sunday Family Dinner
Monday, December 31, 2018      3 comments

Woke up in a good mood feeling like I had a lot to look forward to. It's Sunday which is the day our family spends a dinner together around the table. So often we eat on the run or at separate times in separate places but on Sundays we take t... Read more
One of the Best Things I Ever Did....
Saturday, December 29, 2018      1 comments

....Was to join Sparkpeople and pay that one-time premium to enjoy all the features. Because I keep coming back. And while it feels a little strange, like visiting a house I know well but haven't been to for a long time, it still feels like ho... Read more
Mindset Monday
Monday, August 07, 2017      1 comments

I did Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday right last week. For three days I kept my goals in mind and had myself a little streak. I derailed in the face of coordinating my mom's 90th birthday party with the theme of Country Fair. The party was Saturda... Read more

It's back to basics for me. My goals? 1. Drink 64 ounces of water daily, 2. Exercise at least 10 minutes daily 3. Track EVERYTHING I eat......accurately. I found this nifty cup at 7-Eleven. The one near my home sold cup... Read more

Okay....I am up off the floor and screwed up my courage and weighed myself. I am only up five pounds. No big deal....I can deal with it. I'm not sure what happened. I went through some emotional stuff and just started stuffing myself and sle... Read more
