Self Respect
Monday, October 28, 2013      11 comments

I have a bad habit of letting people take advantage of me. So many times I've been asked for money by someone I know. The economy is tough, but after a while it's easy to spot the moochers. They start asking you for money, hovering around you wh... Read more
Morning Walk

I absolutely love fall in upstate New York. Yesterday I purchased a pair faux fur lined mules that are super comfy to walk in. Snickers and I did our morning stroll and met with a few neighbors, there's a new dog nearby, a tiny caramel and white... Read more

What a night. It took me almost two hours to put my new desk chair together, and I still have my coffee tabe set and Dyson to do, too. Tomorrow I'm helping my parents with their Halloween party, which means I'll have to do the rest Sunday before... Read more

I'm going to try and give up cheese on my daily sandwiches. The added calories and fat just aren't worth it, especially with how filling the meat is. I'm very thankful that I absolutely, positively despise mayo. The only other thing I need to do... Read more
Ear Pain
Tuesday, October 22, 2013      8 comments

Ear pain has been coming and going lately. It's taking everything I have to stick it out at work, and it doesn't help they have the heat on full blast. Heat has always made me very, very sick. If I can feel my hands it's not cold enough! I... Read more

That's when I last posted a blog entry. Eek! My sinuses have been awful for the past month, and with sinus pain comes a lot of lying down. I work in front of a computer 40 hours a week and spend a lot of my free time writing, so my eyes needed a... Read more

Has anyone else heard of 'Vitapizza'? They are so good! I just had one for lunch. Less than 5 grams of fat and mighty tasty. My only lament is the price. I can't stand that healthier food is so much more expensive. The little thing (the si... Read more

Failure to plan is planning to fail. I told myself I'd buy Kashi cookies over the weekend, but a sinus infection kept me at home in bed. Today I went to Subway and, since I also failed to have breakfast, my stomach was growling so I treate... Read more

This past month has taught me a lot about my eating habits, both good and bad. I've been so focused on keeping the fat grams down that I only just realized my carb intake is a wee bit too high. I'm a carb junkie ... Read more
Feeling Good
Wednesday, September 25, 2013      10 comments

I see my doctor in less than two months, and have decided not to weigh myself until then for many reasons. Joining SP has been a blessing. I've learned how to eat all over again and take care of my body. There have been a couple of slip ups, but... Read more

My employer is providing us with hamburgers, hot dogs, cookies, chips, and soda today. I saw many people taking a hamburger and a hot dog in addition to chips and cookies, but I settled for just a hamburger. Well, cheeseburger ... Read more

It's been a rough start to my week. My doctor has me on two medications that make me very tired, so getting out of bed in the morning is something I have to push myself to do. Working second shift is something I enjoy, but that means it's easy t... Read more

I hate Mondays with a passion. There's ongoing construction on part of the highway I take every day, so I took a really, really, really long route to get into work and left extra early. Apparently too early. I had over an hour to kill befo... Read more
Pandora's Box

I wasn't prepared to run into him last night, but I did. While he doesn't (and never did) define who I am, our relationship was a learning experience. There I was, looking for low-fat Stella Dora breakfast cookies on a random Wednesday nig... Read more
Another Reason to Go Organic
Sunday, September 08, 2013      2 comments

When it comes to buying organic, I stick to apples and berries. Thick-skinned produce, like bananas, don't seem to pose as much of a hazard. The pesticides are up against a big barrier, and let's be honest: organic isn't always an option due to ... Read more
