Snippets of my thoughts...

So I stepped on the scales this morning - I'm down 3 pounds! What a relief! I have been making better choices. I have not eaten fast food. I'm very happy about this. Now comes the REAL challenge - vacation. We leave Sunday and return Wedne... Read more

I've been very busy lately. I find it difficult to find time to cook like I should. So today, I did some substituting and eliminating of food items. I came up short on calories for the day. So... I was perusing the frozen low-carb treats in ... Read more
Failing Miserably...

And not with my food choices. It's the kids. I don't know why I can handle a classroom of special needs kids 9 months out of the year, but when it comes to summer, I lose all control with my own 4 children. OK. At school I don't have to run ... Read more

Today I decided no more excuses. No more laziness. No more fries!! We showed the house today, which has been my latest excuse for fast food. Although it was very difficult, I fixed all my meals at home today. I was VERY stressed. It took m... Read more

I began my day by stepping on the scale. Bad move. It's not my weigh-in day, but I needed to assess the damage I've been wreaking upon my body. Up two pounds. I'm not surprised, but it is a little scary. That along with several other issues... Read more
On a roll - a bad one...

I ate horribly today. I'm stuck. It's like if I eat one meal off my plan, I think that gives me liberty to eat junk all day. We went to Wendy's for lunch, had a birthday party for my nephew, and then a party for the fireworks, which were toni... Read more
I love to have fun!!

Today was a lot of fun. The kids and I hung out this AM and then we had a wedding for a friend of mine this afternoon. I gussied all the kids up. They felt awfully special. The wedding and reception were fun. The bride is such a spirited, f... Read more

Despite my recent grease and salt ingestion, I have lost a pound. And with that knowledge, what do you think I had for lunch? Let's just say it was another visit to the golden arches. My excuse? The house showing was at 2. I took the kids a... Read more
Oh, my goodness...

So I bravely put into my food tracker the junk I ate for supper ( I neglected in my previous blog to mention the cheesecake). Amazingly, my calories for the day aren't too bad (1352). I'm so glad I tracked it so I didn't feel like I had absolu... Read more
I'd like fries with that...

I've really done well sticking to my plan. Last night I veered off course slightly, but not too badly. Today is our 10th Anniversary. I got a big beautiful bouquet of red roses from my husband. The roses are beautiful, but the fact tha... Read more

Today I went to Curves - yahoo!! We had a t-ball game and then went to the lake to swim. I did a great job sticking to my eating plan. We had pizza for supper (I did NOT indulge). So here comes the "oops". I resisted repeated offers for pop... Read more
Feeling full

Today I felt full - and heeded that feeling. Yay, me!! Tomorrow, the kids and I are going to the lake. This will be our first swim outing of the summer - yikes!! The kids will have lots of fun, so that's what's important. I'm doing we... Read more

Just another HOT day. We had an early t-ball game (thanks, bgsufn and atdmsmom for joining us!!). We played out in sprinklers tonight - the kids loved that. I was lazy. I even took a 20 minute nap. My husband says it was too hot to do anyth... Read more

Time is such a precious commodity. I find myself living by calendars and schedules even during the summer. That's just how my brain works. Which carries over to my need to make meal plans for healthy eating. To do lists in order to remember ... Read more
Frustration...

I usually try to put forth a positive attitude regarding my "healthy eating" (I don't call it a diet because I have changed my way of eating). I'm not in a hurry to lose weight. But...I have been in a plateau since last September. I've lost a... Read more
