If you've read several of my posts this week then you probably have the impression that I thoroughly disdain this national orgy of competitive consumerism that we subject ourselves to every year while saying it's in the name of Christ. You'd be... Read more
easy day

I kind of slacked off today. I did clean both bathrooms. The kitchen is clean. I started some laundry but then forgot about it. Oops. I'll get that in the morning. My girl spent most of the day on the computer and my boy went to stay with ... Read more
Headaches make me ramble
Friday, December 21, 2012      3 comments

I don't know why I have such a headache this evening. I don't think it's related to my dinner because it's just been coming on in the last hour or so and dinner was hours ago. And not dreadfully unhealthy. I wrapped Butterball Turkey franks i... Read more
What Would Jesus Buy?

My favorite holiday movie is a documentary about Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping Choir titled "What Would Jesus Buy". They tour the country visiting malls and big business headquarters to protest the rampant consumerism that has ... Read more
Not ready...

Oh, I don't mean for Christmas. Rampant consumerism isn't important enough for me to stress over. No, I'm not ready for the kids to be out of school! If they're in the same room, chances are they're fighting or on the verge of fighting or... Read more

December is always such a busy month, crowded with activities and obligations. I got married in December. This year it's been 19 years and it's the 2nd anniversary since I moved out, only the 1st since I realized there's no freaking way I'll e... Read more

“If you haven’t got anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all” applies to self-talk, too. Of course it’s important to treat others the way we want them to treat us but wouldn’t be nice also to treat ourselves as well as we treat others? ... Read more

I'm feeling somewhat overcome this evening and don't really feel like exploring those feelings at the moment. So instead I'm going to recycle another post I wrote back in May. Again it's one I did while annoyed ... Read more

This morning I was doing my volunteer work at the mall (really! I was!) and I was talking to my partner. We were handing out candy canes and I told her I felt awful about pushing sugar on people when I myself had just lost 40lbs! We joked aro... Read more
Food is fuel, not hugs
Friday, December 14, 2012      3 comments

The other night I was tapping out my blog post on my iPhone because my monitor had died. Now, I don't actually remember writing "Food is fuel, not hugs" but it resonated with a couple of people so I went back to re-read what I had tapped out an... Read more

OK, I had planned to discuss something different this evening but then this happened so the other thing can wait ... Read more

I stayed well within all my nutritional ranges today! And I exercised in addition to my morning walk! I could whine some more but I think things are finally starting to turn around for me. I haven't found my missing jewelry box yet ... Read more
On the verge of comfort eating

I am so glad this day is almost over. My plan is pretty much just to go to bed right after my girl is tucked in because I'm just at my limit. It almost makes it worse that all my problems are kind of petty but it's really wearing me down! ... Read more
That wasn't my plan for the day!

First this morning my girl was mad at me because she played with her new toy when I told her to finish her homework. Then it was raining like mad this morning so I didn't get my morning walk. Also, I overslept and forgot to take my pills and hav... Read more
Did NOT see that coming!

I believe I've mentioned recently that my scale has been sticking again lately. It's been floating between 185-187 for probably 3 weeks now. And I had a couple of high calorie days this week. So I really didn't expect a big change when I weig... Read more
