new fruit adventure
Monday, May 24, 2010      5 comments

I love my fruits and vegetables. There aren't many out there that I haven't tried. That's why I was excited to see kumquats in the grocery store today. I quickly bought a package, having no idea what to do with them. They look like little tiny o... Read more
finding my grip
Monday, March 29, 2010      7 comments

Like that positive note in the blog title? I'm FINDING my grip instead of LOSING it. I think the teeter totter I'm on right now could be viewed from either angle. Some days are good, other days are ... not so good. I found something over th... Read more
something to be proud of
Friday, March 12, 2010      3 comments

I hate dangling participles. I really wanted to title this post "something of which to be proud." But who really talks like that?? But here's what makes me so happy. I had plans after work yesterday to go home, bake some chicken and g... Read more
picking myself up

By the time yesterday was over, I was one pooped pup. I had tracked about 1200 calories that I had eaten, and my GoWear arm band had tracked about 2400 that I had burned. I think that means that I should have eaten a little bit more. I'll get th... Read more
no more false starts
Wednesday, March 10, 2010      5 comments

Spring is in the air. Something has clicked somewhere in my head to make me want to get on the ball and take care of myself. After a few long successful runs, followed by several false starts, I think I can safely say that I know what to watch o... Read more

I have been monitoring my calories burned for the past couple of weeks. It seems that in order to maintain my current weight, I need to eat right around 3200 calories. I seem to burn that many just by getting out of bed and living, lugging this ... Read more
getting a head start on the new year
Monday, December 28, 2009      8 comments

Hello SP! Where have you been the past year or so? Oh, wait ... I guess the question should be where have I been the past year or so? I make an appearance here or there and then disappear again for weeks/months on end. With the new year sta... Read more

I managed to go to the store last night and picked up so many yummy HEALTHY groceries! Lots of veggies, lean protein sources, whole grains. I felt so empowered, it felt just a little silly. Why hadn't I been doing this all along? Because the che... Read more

I'm planning my meals for the rest of the week. I will be heading to the grocery store this evening to stock up on fresh fruits and vegetables, grains, lean proteins. What else? Healthy snacks! And exercise. I can't forget exercise. In my ... Read more

A few weeks ago, I came down with that horrible virus. It knocked me down for a good two weeks. I was too stubborn to give in to it completely. I stayed home while I had the fever. But as soon as I was starting to feel even the slightest bit bet... Read more
catch me ... I'm falling
Monday, June 22, 2009      12 comments

I worked really hard a week ago and lost close to 5 pounds in one week. I didn't do anything extreme. But I was extremely strict with myself. Right. I should (and do) know myself well enough to know that being strict (even for a week) ... Read more

I ended my Wednesday with a sore tummy from pizza indigestion and started my Thursday in a courtroom. What a huge confession, right there. I ate unscheduled and unplanned pizza and salad last night. It wasn't as much pizza as I would have h... Read more
taking care of me

Making healthy decisions has been much easier for me lately. I've missed this feeling. I'm glad it's back. I also know this can be fleeting. I intend to enjoy it and take full advantage of it while it lasts! Every Tuesday and Wednesday I sp... Read more

I had once said (not too very long ago, actually) that I would never allow myself to enter the 260s again. I was nearly devastated when I weighed myself a few weeks ago and saw that I was not only in the 260s, but I was above 265 ... well into t... Read more

I got a new loveseat to replace the falling apart sofa in the living room. I also got new mattresses for the kids' bunk bed. I paid an unbelievable huge amount of money for delivery. I don't have a truck and I'm not one to ask for help fro... Read more
