Rest does a body good
Wednesday, July 14, 2010      6 comments

Rest from your normal routine can be a good thing. Or rest from pushing yourself all the time. Not resting on your laurels. But just not pushing so hard. We all push ourselves so much. A little friendly competition is good for all of us... Read more
Lazy Day
Monday, July 05, 2010      3 comments

I was tired today. I was up until 1:30 this morning visiting with our neighbors. I woke up at about 6:00 a.m. and got up. I don’t sleep in. It’s not that I don’t want to; I do. But I can’t. We have room-darkening blinds and the light still... Read more
Made it through my birthday practicing portion control
Monday, June 28, 2010      6 comments

For my birthday on Saturday, we took a day trip to Julian, CA, which is famous for their apple pies. I’m not a big fan of pie, but DH LOVES pie, especially apple. I am so glad Julian is not famous for carrot cake. I would be in a coma right n... Read more

Yesterday, for lunch, instead of having a salad that usually leaves me still wanting more, I left out the greens and put my salad ingredients in a small whole grain tortilla. It was more filling than just the greens, and I didn’t need to eat an... Read more

Saturday, June 19, 2010      1 comments

You know I’ve been having a weird relationship with food for the last three weeks, since I took a road trip to Missoula MT, my birthplace. So last week, I started this portion control challenge and I am going to do it until next Saturday, which... Read more
My abs are sore!!
Tuesday, June 15, 2010      3 comments

When I woke up this morning, the first thing I felt were my abs…they were sore! I haven’t felt this kind of sore for about two years, when I first used the Bosu ball. During my Zumba Gold class this morning, I started feeling my arms, mo... Read more

Have you ever noticed that the foods you eat affect your attitude? Do you want to get rid of negative thoughts and replace them with positive thoughts? Eat better! The five-day road trip to Missoula messed me up, eating wise. I had to... Read more
My new approach and how I am going to get into the 140's
Sunday, June 13, 2010      5 comments

I want to be able to eat what I want when I want. Can you relate? I want to be able to eat like a “normal” person. A normal person eats only when they are hungry and they eat until they are no longer hungry. I will call it eating like a “hea... Read more
I'm Confessin to Morticia
Saturday, June 12, 2010      2 comments

Ever since I got back from Missoula MT, I have been eating weird things…things that I haven’t eaten in years and things that I never craved before. Maybe it was seeing family I haven’t seen in twenty years. Maybe it was just the fact that I we... Read more

Last night these baby bunnies were born in our yard. How can you help but think they are just the cutest things ever? I can’t even get upset with them for what they are about to do to my garden. Last year they loved my ganzia flowers. I bare... Read more
It takes courage

Since I wrote my last blog, I have been using less mayo and more mustard and I have been eating more fresh vegetables, thanks to all of you who gave me support and suggestions. I am much more conscious about the amount of mayo – just because I ... Read more
What is stopping me?
Thursday, April 15, 2010      16 comments

Okay, my Spark friends, I need your help. My excuses: I haven’t found a substitute for mayonnaise yet. I’ve tried yogurt; I’ve tried mustard (are you kidding?) but NOTHING is like Best Foods mayonnaise. The other thing is that ... Read more
Getting Sparked
Wednesday, April 14, 2010      5 comments

On the way to Diamond Bar, CA, for my Aqua Zumba certification, I finally started reading The Spark. I do that a lot: buy a book and then let it sit for a while....lol. I need some motivation to get my weight moving again. It is a very mo... Read more
