Getting honest
Friday, January 20, 2017      1 comments

Although I burned off 70 pounds a few years ago, I moved into a third floor walk up apartment and stopped exercising. I felt uncomfortable working out above my neighbors heads, but I also stopped going to the gym. My walks to and from the train ... Read more
Hungry day
Tuesday, December 20, 2016      2 comments

I'm not sure why, but today is a hungry day. I am refraining from eating my lunch after a protein shake, bag of apples and babybel of cheese. I normally just drink the shake, so I think this is a reaction to waking up at 4 but not eating til 7:3... Read more
Late night nachos
Friday, December 16, 2016      1 comments

Last night, I asked my foodie husband to make me homemade nachos. He gave me a huge plate, and they were delish. I ate every bite at 9 pm--easily over 1000 calories and promptly felt ill. Carb coma. Queesy stomach. Body aches. Heartburn. General... Read more
Hungary and Tired
Wednesday, December 14, 2016      4 comments

Feeling hungry and tired as I wait for my lunch delivery. I was running late and just wish I could go back to bed, but that's not possible. Diabetes and GERD are kicking my butt, so I am always fatigued. Tired or not, I am grateful that since r... Read more
Good enough
Monday, May 07, 2012      1 comments

I decided for no particular reason that today would be a good day to write a blog entry, and I was surprised to see my own experience, weakness and hope waiting from me in the form of blogs from 2010. Two years ago, I'd started a 12-step p... Read more

I had a disturbing thing happen about a week ago. Several photos of me were taken at my daughter's graduation ceremony. I studiously avoid taking pictures of myself. I have more than enough self-loathing, and photos remind me of yet another reas... Read more
De-cluttering my house. De-cluttering my life.
Tuesday, June 01, 2010      5 comments

In December, I started de-cluttering my house. I just couldn't take it anymore. I had piles and piles of stuff that I kept just in case, unfinished projects and things I no longer cared about. I decided with the help of FlyLady.net to de-clutter... Read more
Late night walking to beat the heat
Monday, May 31, 2010      3 comments

I'm so glad it's summer time. We had such an intense winter that I'm just glad that it's finally warm and sunny. The only down side is the weather is super muggy and hot all day, so I've decided to add extra cardio by walking in well lit places ... Read more
All is right with the world; the three pounds extra pounds are gone.
Monday, May 31, 2010      0 comments

Yes. I know I'm a drama queen, but when I stepped on the scale yesterday and saw those extra pounds, my feelings were hurt. I know I ate poorly for a few days, but I just didn't eat an extra 10,500 calories last week. Anyway, a good workout, lo... Read more
Gained three pounds this week
Saturday, May 29, 2010      3 comments

I gained three pounds three pounds this week. I can't say that I'm surprised. I ate out a lot. I ate foods high in sodium and empty calories--Chinese food with plenty of rice. I also exercised three days out of seven, and on the days I didn't wo... Read more
Efficiency counts
Monday, May 24, 2010      2 comments

I was supposed to run errands today. I forgot to get notes from two medical providers for my son, and his school won't let him make up work. This morning, however, I decided to request notes with phone calls and follow up phone calls. It's perfe... Read more
Menu planning - mentions food
Sunday, May 23, 2010      0 comments

It's late Sunday afternoon, and I'm figuring out what I'm going to eat this week. I made a fairly healthy crab salad for lunch with Vidalia onion, olive oil mayo, Mrs. Dash and crab claw meat. I'll probably make a Bulgar wheat salad with aspara... Read more

It's early Saturday morning, and I'm trying to collect as many Sparkpoints as I can before heading to bed. ... Read more
Skipped my workout yesterday and still worked out
Friday, May 21, 2010      1 comments

I got all the way to the gym yesterday and didn't feel like working out, so I left. I don't do it frequently, but every once in a while, I will get to the gym with the wrong attitude and will go home. Yesterday, I was meeting up with a friend, a... Read more
Finding out I can wear my old clothes-priceless
Wednesday, May 19, 2010      5 comments

I've spent much of the last few weeks buying new clothes, because my old ones were too big. I've shopped and shopped, but I couldn't find nice slacks. Today, I remembered that I should have the pants for a suit in a storage bin, so I found the b... Read more
