When the kids were all small and in school I would always have healthy snacks waiting for them when they got home from school. In the spring there would be fresh cut up fruit, cheese and crackers. The fall would always have fresh baking, usua... Read more

Has anyone else noticed that Monday seems to keep showing up. It's almost like it's a weekly occurrence. This weekend was fun, and very relaxing. Well as relaxing as it could be. My youngest went out on her first date. It was cute to watc... Read more
55 pounds *poof* gone
Saturday, September 25, 2010      10 comments

It took me 8 years to gain the 55 pounds and only 9 months to lose them. Sounds kinda cool when you say it that way. The scale (AKA my trusted wingman) confirmed what it told me yesterday, I hit 255. I'm finally off the plateau. I could... Read more
I don't know if I can trust that

This morning I stepped on my trusted wingman. 255 pounds. I stepped off, stepped on 255 pounds. I walked away played with the dog, stretched, came back. 255 pounds. That would be a 3 pound drop this week. I understand that this is co... Read more

The house is clean, stress level decreasing now it's time to look deep into corners. I decided to dig around the freezer to see what was in there that I had forgotten about and I came across a pie. Rhubarb and strawberry, and small enoug... Read more

I walked into the living room last night after work. "I feel the need to sweat." This was of course was given the utmost attention I expected. A casual glance up and a grimace. "You want to go for a hike?" That would be... Read more
Kitchen exploded, corn everywhere!
Tuesday, September 21, 2010      7 comments

Yesterday I decided I would strip corn from cobs and freeze it for the winter. I used to do this all the time when all the kids lived at home as a way to save money. This time I wanted to do it so I knew that even when I was out of the countr... Read more

Turns out I am not ready to fly solo. I need my wingman in order to succeed, in this case that would be my scale. For the first time this year I'm up, I came home from Oregon with an extra three pounds and I would love to throw my hands... Read more
Missing my scale and being a role model?
Tuesday, September 14, 2010      3 comments

I've come to a conclusion. I Tami am addicted to my scale. I need to know how much I weigh. It's been over a week since I've been able to weigh in and it's driving me up the wall. Vanity be thy name, I need to see those numbers move. Yeste... Read more
Today I'm going to throw caution to the wind and eat
Sunday, September 12, 2010      3 comments

Yesterday I decided that today I would go wild and eat a few of my old favourite foods. I decided on mashed potatoes (with butter), good ol' meatloaf and stuffed mushrooms, and wine...or should I say WINE. Maybe some pie for dessert. Knowing I ... Read more
Today I will be the best Tami I can be
Thursday, September 09, 2010      25 comments

Before my feet hit the floor in the morning I say this to myself. I find it makes a difference. It's a reminder to smile and to think how my choices will impact others. To think of other peoples feelings and needs and how I can help their day... Read more

Today was fun, it was one of those days that come far and few between because you just get to spend the day being a fairy godmother. For the trip to Dublin I'm launching a new line of business for work. I was given permission today to bring... Read more

WOO HOO!!! My travel for Dublin has finally been sorted out and the company was able to rent me the furnished apartment instead of using the hotel. This means for the 5 weeks I'm there I'll have a full kitchen and don't have to rely on rest... Read more

I love travelling, getting on an airplane and not knowing what to expect when you land. I love the adventure. What I love most, coming home. The trip this week was a hoot. The people I work with in Oregon are always fun and they are my fa... Read more
