OK. Really. I need to do this.
That's my word for 2017. Not that I've been very good at working on it. So, I need to begin really focusing on it.
If I looked back at my blogs, I would see an awful lot of entries saying, "This is it," or "I'm starting aga... Read more
Not just a New Year's Resolution!
I have been only barely active on SparkPeople, just logging in long enough to track exercise so I keep up my "90 minutes of activity a week" streak. Sometimes the exercise was only cleaning the house. Haha!
Back in May I ended my membership... Read more
Time for a fresh perspective
The other day I read a blog about fasting, pointing out that fasting is expected of us, for Jesus said "when" you fast, not "if" you fast. I think I had forgotten about that. It's time to fast. It's time to shift my focus from myself and my desi... Read more
Am I Hungry? Part 1
I just got back from an annual conference. We stay with friends so it's more like a retreat/vacation, and I do a lot of walking since parking is limited. One day I walked 27,104 steps!
Because I got so much exercise, I didn't worry about WH... Read more
New Challenge: Am I Hungry?
I haven't done a challenge for a week or so--my own challenge that I blog about that is. I've been doing the "28 Day Home Workout Challenge" because I cancelled my gym membership (long story for another time) and wanted to prove to myself that I... Read more

Not Eating After 8 p.m. - 3rd Report
It's almost 8 p.m. here in Ohio. If I'm going to eat anything, I have 3 minutes. Haha!

Not Eating After 8 p.m. - 2nd Report
Today I ate after 8, but the reason was that I did so well in my food choices that I had calories to spare! So I ate a high fiber english muffin, which put me pretty close to my fiber goal and at the lower end of the calorie range. Hooray!... Read more
Not Eating After 8 p.m. - 1st Report
Well...I'm doing about 50/50 at this point. On Sunday I ate after 8 because I forgot it was after 8! On Monday, I think I managed to not eat after 8, but I ate a lot of things I shouldn't have. Yesterday was an odd eating day, and I ended up giv... Read more
Not Eating After 8 p.m.
This week I'm experimenting with not eating after 8 p.m. I came upon this idea when I thought that maybe my late night eating was keeping me from falling asleep.
I've done this for the past few nights, but I'll count tonight as my first day... Read more
Keeping Myself Accountable - Days 5, 6 and 7
I guess I could call this an experimental week. I was able to avoid sweets entirely only for two days. However, on the days I did eat sweets, I didn't eat as much as I have in the past, so I consider that a victory. And I lost almost half a poun... Read more
Keeping Myself Accountable - Days 3 and 4
Keep forgetting to blog! But at least I'm not forgetting what I'm supposed to be doing. Yesterday I did well staying away from sugary sweets. Today I did well until the very end of the day when I had a couple tablespoons of pumpkin spice chips (... Read more
Keeping Myself Accountable - Day 1 and 2
I forgot to blog yesterday, but I did well in avoiding sweets. When I wanted some, I chewed some gum or ate something that wasn't sugary.
Today isn't over yet, but I did eat a piece of birthday cake from a party I went to. I allowed myself ... Read more
Keeping myself accountable
So, I gained weight this week. I know why. It's because I haven't changed my eating habits. I keep "saying" I need to lay off the sweets, but the "saying" hasn't translated to "doing" yet.
So, for the sake of accountability, I'm going to bl... Read more
So, here I am again...
Some days I feel just fine about my weight. I think, I'm not THAT overweight. I'm okay.
Then I realize that the extra weight I'm carrying makes it harder to keep up with my husband when we walk.
Or I can't bend over to tie my shoes.
