Tuesday, August 09, 2016      3 comments

This will be short as I need to sleep soon, but I just had to record how proud I am about my ability to stay on track this summer, despite being away from home and with almost constant eating at people's horses or out at restaurants. I think ... Read more
5 weeks in...
Tuesday, July 26, 2016      0 comments

The most challenging part of the year is when I leave my house and my hermit ways to spend 8 weeks "home" with my kids for the summer. I have my space, but I don't have my regular food stores, schedule, or kitchen stuff. (It's amazing how much... Read more

Squick warning for those with fish egg issues. Who doesn't like to pop bubble wrap? I was reminded that I really love Tobiko. One of the main reas... Read more
Summer is looming

Every summer I pack up my kids and my work computer and fly 3000 miles to spend the summer near my parents. The pros (or helpful strategies): * I am renting an apt with a full kitchen so I will have my own food. * My kids are signed up with a... Read more
New Number Day!

I am somewhat of an uneven weigher, these days. I somehow managed to change my perception of weight so that the plateaus don't bother me too much and the up and down of normal life doesn't send me into a tailspin. But often I forget to do it e... Read more
Awesome blog about the gym

I got through almost all of a blog entry about the gym and then touched the wrong spot on my phone and it all went away. Nuts. I'll try again later. :)... Read more
The joy of being hungry
Sunday, May 22, 2016      3 comments

One of the things I have noticed is that now that I have kicked my carb addiction and my eating is suited to my pre-pre-diabetic self, I actually get hungry in a "normal" way. That is, I notice that I am hungry and think, "oh yeah, looks like I... Read more
Tracking Food, Week 3, and not neurotic!
Saturday, May 14, 2016      5 comments

I am not sure what is different this time, but I am somehow not becoming obsessed with my food as I have done previous times. I think perhaps it is that I have cut my sugar addiction dramatically this time, where previously I was focused on cal... Read more
Not eating enough....
Thursday, May 12, 2016      2 comments

One of my biggest challenges is not eating enough as I try to limit my carbs to 45grams per meal. I either crave junk food (straight carbs) or I am not particularly hungry at all. I have been eating more fruit and veggie but trying to get more... Read more

Thursday, April 28, 2016      4 comments

Today is day 7 of my renewed efforts to change my outlook, my health, and my weight. There are a bunch of motivators, but one big one has been the feeling that my feet are going to feel so much better if I can take off 20+% of my body weight. ... Read more

I am 6 days into my current push to record my food and be mindful of my carbs, and I am going strong. But as I look at my bog posts from years ago, I am already trying to figure out how to ensure that I don't lose my focus and end up back where... Read more
A new week
Monday, August 09, 2010      2 comments

This week I am going to re-commit to my exercise plan. I've been using the pedometer to get in extra minutes lately, but have been off my regular elliptical routine. Last week I had a bunch of contractors coming and going, so my schedule was o... Read more
data, data, where is my data?
Thursday, July 29, 2010      2 comments

For the last week I have been overwhelmed by life in general (work, house remodel, appliances and car windows breaking, house remodel details being done wrong, costing thousands of dollars, etc). And I stopped logging my food and while I'm stil... Read more

Friday, July 16, 2010      2 comments

I am down .5 pounds this week. So I'm tracking exactly on schedule. This week I started my 100 pushup challenge. I do my 3rd day later today and I'm guessing it's going to be hard, but doable like day 2. I started using th... Read more

I've been thinking a lot about motivation here lately. Spark People is helping a lot with motivation right now, but I'm trying to dive deeper into what will keep me going for a lifetime. What I have noticed is that I'm not really good at... Read more
