I found myself not actually hungry in the morning, so for a few months I skipped breakfast. Then I found out that has a name, Intermittent Fasting, or IF. Then read more about lo carb, higher fat diets, and tried that too. I was already in k... Read more

I logged onto SP for the first time in many months tonight. I wanted to put in what I ate today and see what the calorie count was. I knew all my favorite foods would still be there, and although my cal count was low today, that's all right. I'... Read more

I have to make some changes, and this summer seems like a good time to do so: 1. I am going to try to eat more foods in their natural state; I'll let the garden produce inspire me! 2. I need to move more, so I will find an early mornin... Read more

I'm doing the 100 push-up challenge, and the 200 squat one on a different three days. The squats are much easier; the push-ups, even from my knees, are hard for me and probably wouldn't count as a push-up to anyone but me. But, hey, I am doing ... Read more

I am going to try to put little bursts of activity into my day, especially as winter is seeming to hang on and on. Getting up and doing wall push-ups, picking up the weights, bending and stretching----anything that increases range of motion, m... Read more

Met up with family and children overThanksgiving; it seem's like all is fine with most of us. I am busier than I would like, but I am pleased that my business means I have less time to eat--- so I am happy to have there be a plus to all my stres... Read more

I have found my eating system. It'a not a diet, but a plan for how one can eat for the rest of one's life: the No S diet. Basically 3 meals a day, with No Seconds, No sweets, No Snacks--except (sometimes) on days that begin with S (Sat/Sun and s... Read more

For the biggest loser challenge we are to be introspective. I think in the past year I have learned not to worry so much. Anxiety for me is like taking a medicine that throws all my systems out of whack: my heart races. tension builds, energy e... Read more

I haven't posted on this blog in a along time---Took my 30 minute walk yesterday, on the farm road behind my house, It had cooled down as the sun was sinking, and the road was dusty in spite the prior night's rain. The cows were in the barn, an... Read more

I feel a little too old to be making discoveries about myself, as perhaps i should know myself well by now. Recently I have come to realize, though, that even if we may have fewer years ahead of us, they can be lived well. A friend's sudden dow... Read more

I have been doing much better on eating the right things--- healthy foods, smaller meals, fruit, water, AND I have quit my nightly wine and snacks. That has been my stumbling block, as it is just enough extra empty calories to counteract all the... Read more

I am getting into the fall mode; time to re-commit and make getting into shape a top priority. I'm picking up a spark team challenge, getting my bike out, and picking up those weights. I am going to get moving and keep going. I have plenty... Read more

I've been looking at "Mapmyrun" to find some places I might like to walk. I hate walking on the highway in front of my house, and the back roads are awfully twisty. Right now the dirt roads are mud-mud-mud; so I plotted a route on a less travele... Read more

I am back at this plan; Spring is coming, and I intend to get out hiking, gardening, digging, yard clean-up, and general spring cleaning. I want to get in some cardio most days and at least walk every day. I have been stuck for too long.... Read more
