It's Hard to Eat Too Much
Monday, December 12, 2016      5 comments

Well, I knew I would go over my calorie range. That's a given. BUT. ..for the most part, I managed to control myself. And I had a lovely time, visiting with my family without obsessing over the food. THAT is an NSV! It's a novelty to have had... Read more

So, given my age (48), and the hormone fluctuations expected around now, as well as not-so-quiet roommates, I've been having interrupted sleep for a long time now. The havoc this plays on your mind, your will power, etc., is HUGE. However,... Read more

...my right to vote! A drippy, rainy, grey, not hot, but not cold, day. An inauspicious omen considering that today is election day. I have discovered that if I'm tired, and I stay up instead of going to bed, I will eat any snacky thing my ey... Read more

Okay, so much for trying to fly solo with no accountability... Nearly a year and just over 15 lbs later, I have decided to reset. Not likely that I'll be able to spend a great deal of time on SP this go round, but at least I can still log a... Read more

No, it's not about a dysfunctional fear of running out of BBQ ribs...wish it were! An hour or so after I got to work today, I turned to answer the phone and immediately sucked my breath in sharply as it felt like someone was jabbing a penci... Read more

Hidden Sodium, Groaning Scale
Thursday, January 24, 2013      8 comments

I had Chinese for lunch on Sunday, and knew that I'd be a bit over calories for the day, but that I had room for it. I had the tiny cup of Egg Drop soup (with fried Wonton crunchies), and the Egg Roll. But, I only ate about 1/3 of the Shrimp Fri... Read more

Starting the year, I decided to challenge myself to get back into the routines that I had established before the holidays and my roomie's wedding, etc. In the face of that, I managed to log a few NSV's the last 2 weeks... After re-esta... Read more
