putting the pieces together

The last two years have been a roller coaster of dieting for me. I've learned a lot and I'm thankful for what I've learned; about myself and about healthy eating. I've mostly focused on Atkins and on Nourishing Traditions, with a little Pa... Read more
Another New Year
Thursday, December 31, 2015      3 comments

is upon us. Another fresh year before us. Another chance to start again. How filled with hope we can be to have another opportunity to set and attain goals. I do not set resolutions; resolutions by their nature are RESOLUTE: unchangeable, i... Read more

Wednesday, September 16, 2015      7 comments

Why do they feel they have the right to steal? Someone stole my keys at work today and opened up a case and stole about $600 worth of merchandise. My fault. I left my keys on the table I was working on when I got called to the front of th... Read more

I've taken to tracking my walking. I walk a lot at work each day. Between 3-5 miles just in the store. (On my feet for 6-9 hours depending on the shift.) So, after work I try to add to the steps I've taken by going for a walk in a mall. It'... Read more

yesterday was a very bad day... I had a very hard time going to sleep the night before and had to be up at 3:30am so that I could be at work at 5:30am. I worked very hard--we had a truck come in early and I put up many, many totes cont... Read more

Monday, August 03, 2015      5 comments

What a difference 2lbs can make!
Saturday, July 18, 2015      3 comments

I confess; I ate way over my carbs yesterday. I fully expected to have gained weight today. Instead, I was down 2lbs! That was so encouraging to me that I ended up doing stretches, 50 crunches, and a light arm workout. (I've been slacking o... Read more
goal setting
Tuesday, July 14, 2015      3 comments

there's a good article on SP about goal setting this morning. I admire those who can set a long term goal and work their way to it. I'm not one of them. For me the goals have to be very short term in order to motivate me. Unfortunate... Read more
